AMD launched their new Radeon RX Vega graphics cards last week, and while we were introduced to the new Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56, there was no news on a dual-GPU of any kind. Until now.
There are rumors from WCCFTech that ASUS is working on a new dual-GPU graphics card, since AMD approved AIB partners to tweak the designs of Vega to their liking. ASUS is looking to build a new beast with 2 x Vega 10 GPUs that would feature over 50 TFLOPs of compute performance, 25 TFLOPs of FP32 performance, and consume up to an insane 600W of power.
AMD might have gotten away with air-cooling on Radeon RX Vega, but liquid cooling is absolutely required on a dual-GPU of this size. Performance would be monstrous, easily beating everything NVIDIA has on the market, including the GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN Xp. Price wise, I think we'll see it at $1500 or so - given that Vega 64 is $499 and the liquid cooled version is $599. ASUS probably won't make many of them, as I'm sure they'll be a very limited edition card.
We had a world exclusive on the leaked benchmarks of Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card, which beats the GTX 1070 by 10-15% in some of the most popular games on the market. The dual-GPU version of RX Vega on the other hand... oh boy, would it be a MONSTER.
