AMD has rediscovered its mojo. Building on the momentum of Ryzen, the chip giant has Threadripper waiting in the wings and will also officially launch its hotly anticipated Vega graphics cards in August 2017.

Confidence is so high that AMD feels able to drip-feed content to eager fans craving every last morsel of information. There's plenty of detail waiting to be unearthed in the coming weeks, but for now we can start with a closer look at Radeon RX Vega in its final retail form.

Without further ado, here is the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 in both air- and liquid-cooled flavours:

Expect further details in the coming weeks. In the meantime let us know what you make of the design using the comments facility below.

damn that's ugly…looks like something I've knocked up in my shed
It looks like a shroud they have knocked up to hide the actual card.
I can see the minimalist look they're going for in order to differentiate from the extrovert appearance of the Nvidia Founder's cards but they've not exactly got the Apple-esque stylist minimalism down have they? I hope that these are just reference boards and purely there to show watercooling is an option. That it's a stock option actually is a huge negative for me. I want a card that, as stock, runs as cool and low power as possible to maximise headroom for overclocking. Watercooling a reference board from the factory shouldn't even enter into the equation or be even slightly necessary. That they're demoing this as a stock option suggesting that it may be required for a decent overclock is concerning. Is this a result of the GPU itself or just very crappy power regulation circuitry / components getting toasty under any kind of load? Or is it a marketing gimmick? If it's a gimmick then it may attract some people but those who actually stop to consider this will be thinking twice about purchasing a card such as this for overclocking.
Brushed aluminium isn't a bad choice, plenty of cases go for that look

So you're upset that AMD give you a free watercooler, when nvidia cards with same cost significantly more than air-cooled cards? :rolleyes:
If rumors are correct it won't be a free watercooler, it will cost an extra $100.
