Radeon RX Vega: problems with non-reference models

Radeon RX Vega is not planned with non-reference cooling

From the moment of the announcement of the video cards AMD of Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 passed more than a month. AIB partner of Advanced Micro Devices do not hurry to bring nereferensny decisions to the market.

As journalists of Tom’s Hardware managed to clarify, in plans of the famous vendor of graphic Gigabyte Technology accelerators the RX Vega 64 models of alternative design do not appear at all. This tough decision explains a source directly with several reasons.

First, the frequency potential of the graphic processors Vega 10 XT too strongly varies from a copy to a copy. Secondly, indications of the temperature sensor GPU, as a rule, do not match real. Thirdly, there are directly several options of graphic kernels for cards of RX Vega 64. It considerably complicates design of cooling systems. There is one more quite obvious reason which is not called in the notice Tom’s Hardware, but at the same time.

It is low attractiveness of Radeon RX Vega 64 against the background of high solutions of GeForce 10. Similar video cards can debut as a part of the RX Vega 56 series (the truth, it is unknown, when).

What nereferensny decisions can be expected?

Old colleagues of AMD — Sapphire and PowerColor — project the cards on Vega 10 XL/10 XT. ASUS provided the ROG Strix Radeon RX Vega 64 model of alternative design at the end of summer. But I did not put it on the market yet that strange. From the called Trinity only PowerColor specified approximate time frame of an output of the non-standard Vega 10 version — the beginning of November.

non-reference, amd. radeon,

Vendors of video cards more wait for deliveries of graphic chips for the nereferensnykh of GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, than for Radeon RX Vega 64/56. By the way, plans of NVIDIA concerning GeForce GTX 1070 accelerators are not clear yet.

Perhaps, last will give way to more powerful cards with Ti suffix. Step-by-step accumulation in warehouses of testing of kernels of GP104-200/400 which did not undergo all is a good reason for release further of the hypothetical model “GeForce GTX 1060 Ti”.
