Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 64 Windforce 2X Gaming OC Launched

Gigabyte‘s custom AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card is now officially launched. It took some time, especially since the reference Radeon RX Vega GPUs came out in August. With this custom RX Vega 64 video card however, users get superior cooling and silence, with upgraded VRM.

Windforce 2X Cooling System

Sporting Gigabyte’s Windforce 2X cooling system, each custom RX Vega 64 video card has a direct-touch copper heatpipe heatsink for optimal heat transfer. Three of these heatpipes are 6mm and two are 8mm in diameter. These then distribute the heat into two separate fin arrays which are actively cooled by two 100mm fans.  The large fan size allows for better performance, without needing to ramp up to higher RPMs.

In fact, with its unique blade design using 3D stripe curves on the surface, it is capable of delivering 23% better airflow than the average 100mm fan. These fans also shut down automatically and enter semi-passive mode whenever the load is low enough. Even the backplate comes with a direct touch copper, absorbing the heat from the back of the components.

The only downside is that this makes the card much thicker than a standard dual-slot design. In fact, it measures 53mm thick and is 273.8mm long x 131.6mm wide.

Gigabyte’s offering also boasts a custom VRM with a 12+1 phase design. This allows for better power delivery, and provides stable voltage output even when overclocking. It requires a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

What sets this RX Vega 64 from everything else however, is the comprehensive multi-display connectivity feature. Users can hook up to six displays simultaneously via 3x HDMI 2.0b or via 3x DisplayPort 1.4. No adapters necessary.

Since there is “OC” in the name, the card comes out of the box with higher clock speeds than reference. The base starts at 1267MHz and boosts up to 1560MHz. In comparison, the reference card starts at 1247MHz and boosts up to 1546MHz.
