AMD is back in the high-end PC gaming game


The Radeon VX Vega GPUs will come in three variations.


Advanced Micro Devices has unveiled a gaggle of GPUs designed to give Nvidia a run for its money in high-end PC gaming.

Sunday’s announcement of the Radeon RX Vega family marks AMD’s return to this corner of the market after several years of ceding domination to Nvidia in the most-sophisticated gaming PCs.

There have been plenty of teases about Vega over the past few months, but the processors are officially here, with release dates and prices.

There are three variations, starting at the top end with the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooling, which as the name suggests offers liquid cooling technology. Then there’s the Radeon RX Vega 64 with air cooling and the Radeon RX Vega 56 bringing up the rear.

The GPUs will be available on August 14, with prices starting at $399. Radeon packs will also be available at launch, offering up to $300 of discounts on compatible hardware, plus copies of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Prey.
