Radeon Vega Frontier Edition packs 13 TFLOPS and 16GB of HBM2


The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, as it is called, is an ultra high-end graphics card designed primarily for compute applications.

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is going to empower the pioneers creating the next generation of gaming experiences, but it does beg one question: Can you game on a Radeon Vega Frontier Edition? These specifications leave the RX 560 with a peak compute performance of up to 2.6 TFLOPs and a memory bandwidth of 112GB/s.

Say hello to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. The first Vega product to be released has a name, it has a design, and it has performance figures. For comparison, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti delivers 11.4 TFLOPs of compute performance and packs in 11GB of GDDR5X memory.

Apparently there will be two flavours of the Vega Frontier Edition - Blue and Gold, with the former being a traditional air-cooled model, and the latter using a fancy liquid cooling system. We know how eager you are to get your hands-on Radeon RX Vega, and we're working extremely hard to bring you a graphics card that you'll be incredibly proud to own. Following Vega is Navi, based on a 7nm process.
