AMD Radeon Vega Frontier AIR: 16GB HBM2 listed for $1199

AMD's new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards have been spotted on both Scan UK and Sabre PC websites, in both the air-cooled and liquid cooled versions. Both of the cards have identical specifications, including the super-awesome 16GB of HBM2.

Both the Radeon Vega Frontier AIR and Radeon Vega Frontier LIQUID have 16GB of HBM2, 13.1 TFLOPS of FP32 compute performance, and its Vega GPU clocked at 1600MHz. Both of them rock the new Vega 10 GPU, and have 3 x DP and 1 x HDMI for display connectivity.

As for the pricing, it looks like AMD will have the Radeon Vega Frontier AIR at $1199 while the Radeon Vega Frontier LIQUID will cost $1799... a little crazy, but these are next-gen cards. So now... the speculation begins on pricing of the Radeon RX Vega for consumers. Anything higher than $699 and it's DOA if it can't beat the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but if we see a dual GPU version of the card - my expectations of $1199 are blown out of the water if Radeon Vega Frontier AIR is $1199. Interesting. Another interesting note, is that AMD says Radeon Frontier Vega comes with "16GB HBC" and not "16GB HBM2". Hmm.

AMD compares their Radeon Vega Frontier Edition against the TITAN XP, so we know that Radeon Vega Frontier AIR consumes up to 300W while Radeon Vega Frontier LIQUID uses up to 375W. Both cards easily beat TITAN XP in compute-heavy tasks as you can see in the charts with between 8% and 69% additional performance.
