ASUS shows off ROG STRIX Radeon RX Vega 56

Published: 23rd Aug 2017, 15:57 GMT | Comments

It seems ASUS was indeed the only board partner ready with their prototypes for HBM2-powered Vega series. Not only did they announce the first RX Vega 64 custom design, but also the first RX Vega 56.


ASUS adds two more cards to their Radeon RX lineup, both are identical in terms of design. The first model (ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-8G-GAMING) is a slightly slower variant of ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-O8G-GAMING (the OC Edition). The exact specs were not yet revealed though.

Both cards are triple-fan and 2.5 slot design. They come with a backplate and two 8-pin power connectors. Compared to the reference design, we have an additional DVI-I port.

The RX Vega 64/56 ROG STRIX series are expected to launch in September, hopefully without any ‘free’ games.
