It is prepared to go after the high-end too. Unlike its Fury predecessor that launched against the GTX 980 Ti, the RX Vega 64 will not be competitive with nVidia's current flagship offering, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

But now, it looks like AMD may finally offer products that could compete with Intel and Nvidia's high-end products.

Here's the pricing for AMD's new Radeon RX Vega graphics cards coming out in September. GPUs in both series offer some strong DirectX 12 and Vulkan API performance. Selected Samsung displays that support Radeon Free-sync technology are also available as an option to complete your gaming rig.

Up until this point, AMD has given us just a small taste of what to expect when it comes to performance of Radeon RX Vega 64.

The Vega 56 is priced at $399 (approximately Rs. 25,625) while the standard Vega 64 costs $499 (approximately Rs. 32,045) and its liquid-cooled counterpart costs $699 (approximately Rs. 44,890). It all depends on the ratio of shaders to TMUs to ROPs on each of Vega's Next Compute Unit and how having only 56 CUs on Vega 56 scales, with those Shaders/TMUs/ROPs.

There are two primary models, the Radeon RX Vega 56 and Radeon RX Vega 64. The company says the impressive hardware comes coupled with improved Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Drivers, which are updated the fourth Thursday of each calendar quarter.

Well have a much better idea of exactly how these new cards stack up to their Nvidia counterparts once early adopters begin releasing their own benchmarks, so as usual it pays to wait a month or so before swiping your credit card.

This year's Vega Radeon Pro SSG has 16 GB of ECC HBM2 and 2 TB of on-card NAND flash memory, managed by the Vega architecture's High Bandwidth Cache Controller. It contains the 64 compute units, 4096 stream processors.

AMD has also introduced Radeon Packs which bundle games with discounts for AMD hardware. These packs can also save you money when buying with other PC components. This results in a total of $300 in savings at least for each pack. Looking to build a new PC?

Those anxious about compatibility can rest assured, AMD promises that all their upcoming Ryzen Threadripper processors will be supported by the full X399 ecosystem, with support from leading Motherboard manufactures that include the likes of ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock.

The GPUs will be available August 14, with prices starting at $399.

When Radeon Vega Frontier Edition arrived it brought with it the ability to switch between the Radeon Pro Software and vanilla Radeon Software driver UIs.
