AMD’s Vega Battles Nvidia for the Pole Position in Forza Motorsport 7

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. AMD’s Vega architecture launched in August with the Vega 64 and Vega 56, but while these GPUs put AMD back on the board with higher-end architectures, they weren’t the clean sweep of Nvidia many would-be buyers had hoped for. The Vega 56 is a strong competitor for the GTX 1070, but the Vega 64 was less competitive with the GTX 1080, and the GTX 1080 Ti is out of reach. At least, it’s out-of-reach most ...

AMD Confirms RX Vega Won’t Support 3-Way, 4-Way, Crossfire Configurations

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. For the last fourteen years, AMD and Nvidia have both supported multi-GPU configurations. Initially, these types of systems were limited to two GPUs using either Nvidia’s SLI technology (the acronym dates back to 3dfx) or AMD’s Crossfire. When Windows Vista launched, the supported number of video cards grew to encompass three-way or even four-way configurations. That era, it seems, is coming to an end. When Nvidia launched its Pascal family, it made it clear SLI ...

AMD Confirms RX Vega Won’t Support 3-Way, 4-Way, Crossfire Configs

Custom AMD Vega Boards Reportedly Delayed By Technical Issues

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. When Nvidia or AMD launch a new GPU, there’s a typical rollout pattern. The first cards out the door are reference designs, based on a package Nvidia and AMD provide. Later, companies like MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA, Asus, and PowerColor debut their own custom designs. These custom boards are generally clocked higher, have better, quieter coolers, or may be built on a custom smaller PCB. This time around, however, AMD’s board partners are reportedly having major ...

AMD’s Vega 56 Hits Store Shelves, Promptly Vanishes

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Yesterday, AMD’s Vega 56 GPU went on sale — and immediately vanished from the market. Availability was exceptionally brief, possibly only a matter of minutes, and the cards are now sold out at every retailer we’ve checked (Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg). Obviously new stock may trickle out to manufacturers, but snagging a card is going to require lightning-fast reflexes and a good memory for one’s own credit card number. Once again, the likely culprit is ...
