AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Graphics Card Revealed – Good News and Bad News

Earlier today on AMD’s Financial Analyst Day 2017, Raja Koduri answered one of the questions everybody seems to be asking for “where is Vega?” Raja revealed the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card – not meant for PC gamers though, but for data scientists, immersion engineers and product designers. The Vega Frontier Edition is said to be released second half of June and will feature latest technology like HBM2, faster compute and more. This could actually be both good news and bad news for us consumers and gamers. Continue below…

AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Unleashed

The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is not really intended for us consumers and gamers. It’s for the data scientists and visualization professional and digital pioneers. It’s the company’s solution in the area of machine intelligence where it’s currently dominated by NVIDIA and Intel. If you’re interested, you can learn more about it here – AMD Vega FE.

It was revealed that the Vega Frontier Edition features 16GB of HBM2 memory, 480 GB/sec of memory bandwidth, 64 Compute units, 90 Gpixels/sec Pixel Fillrate and will have 4096 stream processors. It’s also capable of 13TFLOPS of single precision compute performance (FP23); and 25 TFLOPS of half precision compute performance (FP16).

Availability of the said graphics card will be on late June but the pricing was not revealed. Unfortunately, Raja didn’t reveal anything for the consumers; probably and hopefully we will learn more about the consumer version of the Vega Frontier Edition during Computex 2017.

This is good news since we’ll finally see something from the red camp a new graphics card line that could compete with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti and perhaps even the TITAN Xp. The problem is, if the Vega Frontier Edition would be available by end of June, there is a possibility that the consumer variant (or the Vega for the gamers) will be released after. By then, it would probably be too late for AMD, since NVIDIA is expected to release their Volta graphics cards.

Computex is just around the corner, and we’re hoping that AMD will announce something for the consumers during the event. It may not be the actual release of the Vega graphics cards for us gamers, but we may get a paper launch instead.

AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Watercooled Edition

Last but not the least, AMD also plans to release a watercooled version of the Vega Frontier. This means we may see watercooled version of the Vega graphics cards for the consumers.
