AMD launched its new Ryzen CPUs with a brief tease of Radeon Vega, in the form of the new Radeon Vega logo being shown on the year to come for AMD.

The company had some of its new Radeon Vega graphics cards on show at its Ryzen Tech Day event, with some great photos taken by ComputerBase.

The company had a Radeon Vega graphics card in plain sight, rocking an 8+6-pin PCIe power setup.

You can see this Radeon Vega graphics card has a USB 3.0 host connector, something RTG uses for tweaking the card as its a development board.

We can see the back of the card clearly here - to a point, where the back of the GPU has some serious size around it - which should point to a rather larger heat sink to keep Radeon Vega (in reference form at least) cool. Behind the PCIe power connector, you can see lots of blank PCB space that has no connectors. We could expect the power delivery side of the card to not be used, with final Radeon Vega graphics cards to be shorter than what we see here.
