After months of trickles and teases, the full hardware details about the first Radeon Vega graphics card are finally here. Preorders for the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition apparently opened late Thursday ahead of the card’s June 27 launch.
Don’t get too excited though, as this hardware is intended for “data scientists, immersion engineers, and product designers” rather than gamers. That professional focus reflects in the pricing: The air-cooled Frontier Edition costs $1,200 and the liquid-cooled Vega goes for a cool $1,800 at SabrePC. (Exxact also has Radeon’s new card up for preorder.) Still, the Vega Frontier Edition’s specs give us a ballpark glimpse of what we might expect from consumer Radeon RX Vega graphics cards when they launch at the very end of July.
