Heralding the Vega (GCN 5.0) architecture, the AMD Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition Graphics Card combines advancements in memory application and GPU-die construction. Utilizing 16GB of HBM2 VRAM, the Radeon Pro Vega provides a 4096-bit wide memory pipeline for a 483 GB/s memory bandwidth. The GPU itself is no slouch either, a peak single-precision computation rate of 13.1 TFLOPS helps bolster the Radeon Pro Vega's ability to accomplish advanced calculations or leverage APIs such as OpenCL, OpenGL, and Vulkan. Using these API's, the GPU can accelerate graphics rendering and computationally intensive video effects. Applications for this card include, but are not limited to, scientific research in artificial intelligence, development and programming that doesn't require specific application certification, and game, CGI, as well as VR design.
The output panel of this card contains three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs and a single HDMI 2.0 output. With the processing power available inside the Radeon Pro Vega card, 5K (5120 x 2880) displays can be driven at up to 60 Hz from the DisplayPort outputs. The HDMI 2.0 output can connect to monitors or television displays at resolutions up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). At DCI and UHD 4K resolutions, four monitors can be driven for expanding your virtual workspace without requiring splitters or MST hubs.
To keep this powerful card cool, AMD implemented a closed-loop liquid cooler. This type of cooler works more efficiently than a traditional blower-style cooler, as heat from the GPU is absorbed by a contact plate and circulated from the block, via the pre-installed water tubing, up to a separate 120mm radiator unit for dissipation away from the board itself. This design keeps the card quiet even under intense compute or game sequences. The shroud on the card itself is no larger than the blower-style iteration, allowing for similar installation scenarios, provided there is sufficient space to mount the radiator.
