Now that people are getting AMD's new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition into their hands, we've arrived at the release of the Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid Edition, which provides more stable GPU clocks - and a higher TDP that consumes much more power than NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card.

Our friends over at PC Perspective have tested the new Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid Edition, rocking its 375W TDP (the air-cooled Radeon Vega Frontier has a 300W TDP). AMD dropped the price of its Radeon Vega Frontier Edition just before release to $999, down from $1200 - while the liquid cooled version was $1800 (!!!) and dropped to $1200 at the last minute.

PCPer's testing shows us some interesting numbers, with the most interesting being power consumption. The performance of AMD's new Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid Edition is comparable to the GTX 1080, but the power consumption is off the charts - double GTX 1080s even in SLI.

 

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition uses around 300W, while Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid Edition uses 440W when overclocked. At its lower setting, Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid uses 350W - which is still insane compared to the GTX 1080 which uses 180W.

 

PCPer does report that the Radeon Vega Frontier Liquid Edition does run quieter than the noisy Radeon R9 Fury X, too.
