ASUS ROG Strix Vega 64 Unboxed: The First Custom RX Vega

ASUS is the first out of the gate with a custom Radeon RX Vega 64, with our quick unboxing ahead of the full review.

Introduction

AMD had its big launch of Radeon RX Vega a few weeks ago now, and while it hasn't been smooth sailing by any means, ASUS is the first in the world with a custom Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card. The new ASUS ROG Strix Vega 64 graphics card is a better offering than what AMD has to offer in reference form, but just how much better? That's something we'll have to wait for the full review, but for now, we'll give you a look and what I've been up to all week.

Inside, we have the Radeon RX Vega 64 with its full 4096 stream processors and 8GB of HBM2 with a 2048-bit memory bus. ASUS use their own MaxContact Technology that provides 2X more contact with the GPU for improved thermal performance, except Vega is so hot it simply doesn't matter what ASUS throws under the hood.

ASUS also throws in their Aura Sync RGB LED technology, which gives the card a beautiful look and style - fitting in with any other ROG Strix product. There's also VR-friendly HDMI ports, just in case you have multiple HDMI-enabled TVs or monitors, or a VR headset. A nice touch.
