    The Radeon RX Vega pictured above has a similar aluminum cooler shroud as the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition except in a brushed silver finish. The Radeon logo and other LEDs on the card also seem to shine red here to go with the Radeon color scheme. The cooling solution is similar to reference air-cooled VGAs from AMD with a two-slot blower cooler design and what should be an aluminum or copper heatsink underneath the shroud. The reference RX Vega sports three full-size DisplayPort and one full-size HDMI connectors all in the same row allowing airflow exit holes above and making this a potential one-slot card if paired with a single-slot cooling solution such as a water block on an AIO or as part of a custom watercooling loop. Powering the card are two 8-pin PCIe power connectors which add credence to the previous rumors about a 300+ W TDP on the card.

    Like every Radeon before it :) We'll see what third party manufacturers can do about that

    Still waiting for Vega to reach lower spec/fanless, for a small itx tv-pc build.

    Why bother though if it's for a low spec system. Just get a 1050 with passive cooling, put 2 fan in the case in low speed to circulate air and you are gold.

    Update :
    With Radeon RX Vega GPUs confirmed to arrive in August, we now have official information on the models, pricing and specs.

    The flagship model will be the Radeon RX Vega 64, which will utilize the full capabilities of the new architecture: 64 compute units and 4096 stream processors, equipped with 8GB of HBM2 memory. There will be two variants, a more expensive $599 liquid cooled model that will push the clocks to the max and an air cooled version expected to retail for $499. Then there's the Radeon RX Vega 56, a cut down version of the same GPU, with fewer (56) compute units and stream processors for $399.

    Among Vega highlights, AMD is touting support for the latest DirectX 12 features, use of faster HBM2 memory, an improved display engine for multiple 4K monitors, including support for 4K 120 Hz HDR displays, among many architectural improvements that help to push the performance envelope in this and upcoming graphics chips, as AMD points out "Vega 10" is the first implementation of the Vega architecture on the 14nm FinFET process.

    AMD also plans to offer Radeon Vega in packs that will grant you access to a game bundle (Wolfenstein II and Prey) and a discount when buying a Ryzen CPU or Samsung Freesync monitor. In fact, the RX Vega 64 Liquid may only be sold as part of this pack. We'll be able to better judge how good that is for gamers once we get actual performance data which remains undisclosed -- but just for reference, rumors point out to the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition (the fastest version of Vega) to be on par with a GeForce GTX 1080
