AMD is on the verge of launching their next-gen Radeon RX Vega graphics card family, with the flagship Radeon RX Vega 64 and Vega 56 cards now in reviewers' hands. Our friends at TechGage have already posted up some pictures that were quickly removed.

TechGage received their Radeon RX Vega 64 in a beautiful package, with the reference air version and its RX 480 style design.

RX Vega 64 requires 8+8-pin PCIe power connectors for its huge 295W TDP, while we have 3 x DP 1.4 and 1 x HDMI 2.0 display connectors on the back.

AMD have included that awesome GPU Tach and LEDs that you can change between red/blue.

Rob Williams, owner and super-cool TechGage writer said that the Vega 64 package includes a defunct Vega GPU. This is an unusable Vega GPU die that AMD include in the package as a cool inclusion, something you could easily turn into a key ring or something like that. AMD included a defunct Fiji GPU die inside of the Radeon Pro Duo packages last year.

My sample is on its way, with AMD flying down someone from their Toronto HQ to hand deliver my samples in person. I will be throwing a massive Radeon RX Vega content showcase next week, with livestreams, videos, benchmarks, 8K content, and so much more. Prepare your internets.
