The launch of the AMD Radeon RX Vega is planned for the end of July and early August, although we have not yet confirmed their full specifications (they lack the working frequencies) and obviously we do not know the price either.
However, thanks to a premature listing we have been able to see that its version for the professional market, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, had a pre-purchase price of 1,200 dollars, which allows us to intuit that the AMD Radeon RX Vega will be below 1,000 dollars.
Thanks to new information, we have been able to know that this graphics card will have a “frightening” price-performance ratio (in a good way).
The source of the news does not give concrete prices, but since the AMD Radeon RX Vega will offer a performance identical or slightly superior to the GTX 1080 Ti and that it is priced at around 861 dollars the AMD solution should have a lower cost.
With this in mind I dare say that it is very likely that the top of AMD end up costing between 670 and 780 dollars, while the variant with the graphic core Vega Pro (which will compete with the GTX 1080) should be located in about 560 dollars, approximately.
Before finishing I remind you the basic specifications that we know at the moment of those two variants of the Radeon RX Vega:
AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 XT:
- 4,096 shaders.
- 256 units of texturing.
- 64 raster units.
- Bus of 2,048 bits and 16 GB of HBM2.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 Pro:
- 3,584 shaders.
- 224 units of textured.
- 64 raster units
- 048-bit bus and 16 GB of HBM2 (there could be an 8 GB version).
