You remember some time ago. In fact, right after that, it’s gone missing … until the AMD Tech Day conference in Munich, where PowerColor presented its vision of a reduced Vega.
The presented design is still an engineering sample and the manufacturer is considering putting it on sale. After all, it’s worth to take a closer look …
We deal with a reduced PCB, which includes the Vega 10 XL core with 3584 stream processors and 8 GB of HBM2 2048-bit memory. In turn, the power is supplied by a 6- and 8-pin PCIe plug (not a single 8-pin as in the AMD engineering version).
It is also worth paying attention to the cooling of the card – the manufacturer used a 2-slot construction with a massive heat sink and a single fan, which protrudes slightly beyond the outline of the PCB. We are curious to know how to handle core cooling (which, however, is not the coolest).

The producer revealed that the Radeon RX Vega 56 Nano will be presented at the beginning of June at the Computex 2018 trade fair. Detailed technical specifications and the price of the announced model have not been disclosed yet.
