Let’s talk about new line of Radeon graphics that are soon to be released.

What is Radeon Vega?

Overall – we are very excited for this new graphics card line and it’s a definite “YES” from us! We remember when AMD released AMD R9 Fury X, it was matching performance of Nvidia GTX 980Ti, offered liquid cooling out of the box, with price lower by £300 on average.

This time Radeon is aiming to outperform Nvidia’s GTX 1080Ti in same price field.
Seeing Radeon to ditch the colour red and moving to all new blue/yellow coloured design for Vega graphics cards, adds few points to our excitement. We cant wait to get our hands on one of those cards and perform real life tests.

Thanks for reading and see you next time!
