CES 2017 - We had a few meetings, discussions, drinks and amazing chats with AMD and both their Ryzen and Radeon teams at CES 2017 - but LinusTechTips actually had some hands-on time with their next-gen Vega graphics card. Check out the video below.
We don't get any new information from the video, but it's great to see it in person for once. AMD's prototype has a USB 3.0 connector on it so that hardware and software developers can take a bunch of data directly from the card.
During AMD's recent Tech Summit 2016 in Sonoma, CA - I was the first in the world to put my hand behind the card to see the heat being pushed out... and it's a lot. Like, a damn lot. But, as I've said previously - this is a pre-production, super beyond early version of the card.
The best thing about it? NO WATER COOLING like the Fury X, thank you, AMD Gods.
