Gigabyte Reveals RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G Graphics Card

Gigabyte revealed a new Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card equipped with the company’s Windforce cooling shroud.

The Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G joins a short list of vendors (the most recent being PowerColor) to have released custom-cooled versions of AMD’s most recently deployed graphics architecture, the RX Vega 64. The new graphics card sports a factory overclocked base frequency of 1,276MHz (a 29MHz increase from the reference card), and a boost clock rate of 1,560MHz (a 14MHz increase). The memory back-end (8GB 2,048-bit HBM2 clocked at 945MHz) remains the same as the reference models.

The custom-cooled RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G is familiar with its dual Windforce fans, metal backplate, and orange accents. The backplate also features a copper plate directly behind the GPU for increased thermal dissipation. The card requires two 8-pin PCIe power connectors and a 750W power supply. Gigabyte also beefed up the display outputs compared to the reference model (which had one HDMI 2.0 and three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs), allowing up to six screens to be connected via three HDMI 2.0 ports and three DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces.

Pricing and availability of the new Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G graphics card are currently unknown, but with CES just around the corner, we’ll likely be seeing them soon.

    I hope it performs better than it looks

    Wow!, that's what i call a factory overclock! A staggering 2.3% on base clocks and an impressive 0.9% on boost clocks! It makes you wonder why AMD even bothered releasing a reference card, with all this overclocking potential untouched... /s

    I wonder why they added so many display outputs? Are they expecting that many people will connect multiple low resolution monitors? It might help you choose their card knowing that you don't have to use display adapters.

    Gaming on 1 Monitor
    CoinBase/Cryptocompare/Crying on 2nd monitor
    Minergate/Anxiety on 3th monitor
    Anime on 4th monitor (Currently Elfen Lied ... /cringe)

    Any more than 4 is just crazy lol.

    Amd production technology does not support high freguencis neither in cpu or gpu. So that is not big news. The intersting thing is how long these custom cards can keep the max or near max speed and what temperatures they have compared to reference model.
  • redeemer
    overclocking GPUs is pointless anyway

    I'd much prefer a 2-slot 3-fan card over a 3-slot 2-fan.

    Still rockin' my 2-slot 2-fan EVGA 980 Ti FTW, though. I thought 3-slot cards were pretty much a thing of the past...

    But how else will I add the 6 fps I need to enjoy the game?!

    Atleast there's an even ratio of display ports. Not everyone has a Dell monitor. My Dell monitor doesn't even support display port... or HDMI.

    gigabyte is not bad , but air cool is not good
