AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Is Now Available For Pre-Order
After some months of teasers, the full hardware details and pre-order for AMD’s latest Radeon Vega Frontier edition graphics card are finally here.
Gamers don’t get too excited though, as these graphics cards are intended for professional work rather than gaming.That professional side of the graphics cards reflects in the pricing: the air-cooled Frontier edition costs 1,200$ and the water cooled Frontier edition goes for 1,800$ at SabrePC.
Here are the specifications of Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards, taken from the listings on those two stores and previously revealed information.Both of the editions have identical specification apart from the thermal design power rating.
- Memory size: 16GB
- Memory type: HBC
- Memory Bandwidth: 483GB/s
- Stream processors: 4096
- Compute units: 64
- TDP: 300W (air-cooled), 375W (liquid-cooled)
- Display output: three DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI “4K60”
Neither card is overclocked, and none of the listings from the two retailers gives us a core clock speed.
