Sapphire and PowerColor Unveil Radeon RX Vega 64 Graphics Cards

Following AMD‘s unveiling of their latest generation Radeon RX Vega video cards, partners Sapphire and PowerColor are also announcing the availability of their own video cards based on the new GPU. These are based on reference RX Vega video card designs. So far, only ASUS is the only one that announced custom cooling options. The ASUS Strix RX Vega 64 is not arriving until September so AMD’s partners will most likely unveil their custom designs closer to that date.

Three Options for Reference Radeon RX Vega 64

Three options are available in terms of reference card designs from both Sapphire and PowerColor. First is the air-cooled Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB HBM2 with a black shroud, blower style fan. The second and third options are the Limited Edition Radeon RX Vega 64 with a special brushed silver metal shroud available in air-cooler or liquid-cooler options. The liquid-cooler option is the most expensive out of the three options and sports the higher out-of-the-box clock speeds.

Both the Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB HBM2 and RX Vega 64 8GB HMB2 Air-cooled LE have a base clock of 1247MHz and a boost clock of 1546MHz. The liquid-cooled version on the other hand, operates at 1406MHz with a boost clock of 1577MHz. The 8GB HBM2 memory runs at 945MHz for all three models.

All Radeon RX Vega Graphics Cards support bridge-less Crossfire for up to four GPUs. They also all have Type-A HDMI 2.0 and three Display Port 1.4 display output connectors in the rear. Two 8-pin PCIe power connectors from the power supply is necessary. For the Liquid-Cooler edition model, an additional fan header is necessary to plug the 120mm fan from the radiator.
