It seems ASUS is working with AMD closely on the new Radeon RX Vega series of graphics cards, with ASUS being the first with a custom RX Vega 64 graphics card, and now again with RX Vega 56.


The new ASUS ROG Strix Vega 56 OC Edition 8GB features Aura Sync RGB technology, a triple-fan cooler and 2.5-slot design.


The card requires dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and rocks a DVI connector if you're still running an older LCD.


We should expect ASUS to launch their new ROG Strix Vega 56 OC Edition 8GB graphics card sometime in September.

ASUS ROG Strix Vega 56 OC Edition 8GB details:

  • MaxContact Technology that is 2X more contact with GPU for improved thermal transfer.
  • Patented Wing-Blade IP5X-Certified Fans for maximum airflow and longer fan lifespan.
  • ASUS FanConnect II equips with hybrid controlled fan headers for optimal system cooling.
  • Industry Only Auto-Extreme Technology with Super Alloy Power II delivers premium quality and best reliability.
  • ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED synchronization enables a gaming system personalization.
  • VR-friendly HDMI ports let you enjoy VR experiences anytime without having to swap cables.
  • GPU Tweak II with XSplit Gamecaster provides intuitive performance tweaking and real-time streaming.
