Meet The New AMD RX Vega Crew's Codenames 1


Speculation over AMD‘s RX Vega has been widespread as of late. Of course, a hot topic is the codenames of each variant. The current list is, of course, subject to change. However, Videocardz has confirmed that they do in fact exist.

AMD’s Not so Secret Secret?

The RX Vega has been AMD’s flagship secret for some time. However, we all know that it’s not so secret anymore. The Vega RX XTX is a codename for Frontier’s GPU.

What is Vega?

The Vega XTX is actually a water cooled version of the air cooled XT GPU. Of course, it has a higher TDP naturally but could prove the higher performing card. We will find that for ourselves when the cards are available.
