Sapphire RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Version Up Close And Personal
The Sapphire RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled has been pictured and the design is similar to the limited edition model. The GPU has a silver shroud and appears to have a metal finish. The Sapphire RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled will be going on sale starting the 14th of August and that is the same date when the embargo will be lifted.
As of right now there is no information regarding the performance of the liquid cooled GPU but this is an AMD Vega 64 GPU, so you can expect to see similar if not better performance. You can check out the leaked performance numbers to get a better idea of what the Sapphire RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled will be capable of.
The only difference is that while the AMD RX Vega 64 is air cooled, this version of the GPU is liquid cooled. The liquid cooled version has the highest clock speed of 1677 MHz. According to the MSRP from AMD the GPU is supposed to cost $699 but as we have seen with other GPUs the price is higher.
We have seen listings of AMD Vega GPUs and it seems that the GPUs will be sold for as much as $100 higher than the MSRP. It is also rumored that AMD has stressed reviewers to cover the AMD Vega 56 as compared to the 64:
As of today, AMD noted that RX Vega 56 cards have been shipped to reviewers, along with a request that reviewers specifically “prioritize coverage” of RX Vega 56 over RX Vega 64 under time-constrained conditions.
The RX Vega 64 performs well as compared to the Nvidia GTX 1080 according to the leaked numbers and you can expect slightly better performance from the Sapphire RX Vega 64.
