The MSI has launched the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Boost 8G OC, a top-of-the-range graphics card based on the Vega 10 XT graphics core that follows the lines of the reference model in both finishing quality and the dissipation system.
What is said is evident when we see the turbine-type fan and the housing that covers the radiator integrated into the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Boost 8G OC. This means that despite being a custom model, it maintains practically all the keys of the reference version.
At the level of specifications, the MSI Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Boost 8G OC maintains all the keys of the reference model but slightly increases the working frequencies, which in summary gives us the following characteristics:
The new MSI Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Boost 8G OC has 4,096 shaders, and 256 units of texturing. Talking about the rasterized units, that are 64. As high standard, there is a 2048 bit bus. For memory, 8 GB of HBM2 at 1890 MHz is Used.
Finally, talking about the performance rated GPU at 1,272 MHz-1,575 MHz (normal and turbo mode). The reference model works at 1.247 MHz-1.546 MHz. It uses two 8-pin power connectors.
It is clear that with this model MSI seeks to cover the most basic level of the Radeon RX Vega 64 market with customized designs, which means that it should be an economical solution and have a price almost identical to that of the reference model.
MSI has not given the price so we can not give you a specific figure, but by their similarities to the reference model, we imagine that it should be between 600 and 650 euros, approximately. Looking at the price, you can guess it is not a cheap version; this is a high-end product, so it comes at the cost. However, by the specification sheet, you can guess this overclocked Radeon graphic card will give you a monster performance. Stay tuned for the complete review.
