AMD is launching its new Radeon RX Vega graphics cards in a few days, but between now and then - we're allowed to show you something about the card, with no performance numbers just yet. I can tell you that I have the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition, and the air-cooled Radeon RX 56.

At the top we have the GTX 1080 competitor, while the RX Vega 56 takes on the GTX 1070. We've got them running through their paces as I tap away on this keyboard, but we can show you the inside of the packaging of the RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition. The box itself looks cool, but because it's 11:30PM my time here in South Australia, I'm going to do a FB Live video in the morning my time (10-12 hours from this post going live).

Until then, I've got some pictures to enjoy that I snapped between my frantic benchmarking. More details to follow, with full thoughts on the performance, temperatures, power consumption (uhhh), and some exclusive tests (8K, and some others). It has been an interesting journey so far, with AMD flying a staff member out to my city to hand deliver me my samples. It was down to the wire, and I'm still down 48 hours on other reviewers. This is the rush of a GPU launch!

AMD do include a dead Vega GPU in the box of the Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition, and it's freakin' gorgeous. Vega 10, and those two stacks of HBM2 memory... ugh. Beautiful.

A quick shot before we go into more detail.

It's quite long, even though it's watercooled and has HBM2.

Radeon Holocube is REAL! Super unique launch product... gift, I guess?

Radeon RX 56 adopts that slick reference look of the Radeon RX 480.

I dig the style so much, with the RADEON branding lighting up.

I've got the Radeon RX 56 sitting inside of my AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X system that was built yesterday, with 16GB of Corsair DDR4 RAM.
