ASUS RoG STRIX RX Vega 64
Are you a fan of ASUS RoG gaming hardware? I’m sure many of you are, especially given their premium graphics cards are often some of the fastest in their respective classes. Now ASUS has confirmed that they will be playing their RoG hand with the RoG STRIX RX Vega 64!
The new card will feature a full custom PCB, backed up with a somewhat familiar looking RoG cooler design. It has three large fans, which will no doubt help them push the cards performance with increased factory overclocks.
Overall, there will be two cards in the STRIX RX Vega 64 range. The first is the RoG STRIX RX Vega 64. This will be the more “standard” design, while the OC Edition will feature out-of-the-box overclocks. While both cards will feature the same big cooler and custom PCB layout, I expect the OC edition is the cherry picked higher performing cards.
As WCCFTech reports, we expect the cards to be around 1700 MHz GPU Boost Clock. They’ll likely feature dual 8-pin power connectors with improved power delivery hardware too, which would explain the need for a custom PCB.
What ASUS Had to Say
“AMD Radeon™ RX Vega64 has arrived and along with it the VEGA architecture. Get ready to experience smooth, brilliant graphics performance that brings the latest VR and extreme resolution games to life. ASUS is announcing the ASUS RX Vega64 Water Cooled Edition and ASUS RX Vega64 Air Cooled Edition, both reference card designs featuring our exclusive GPU Tweak II technology with XSplit Gamecaster. In early September we will bring to market a pair of custom designed Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix RX Vega64 graphics cards.
ROG Strix RX Vega64 also features ASUS Aura Sync, our RGB LED technology that can synchronize colors and effects across a complete system, from the motherboard and graphics card to peripherals and other components in an ever expanding eco-system. A VR-friendly design with two HDMI ports lets gamers keep a VR headset connected to their system for immersive, virtual-reality gaming without swapping cables.” – ASUS
Release Date and Price
The price is unknown, but as we said previously, the card is expected to release in early September.
