Unboxing the Gigabyte RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition
The Gigabyte RX Vega 64 Liquid edition box is huge. It advertises watercooling, 8GB HBM and high bandwidth cache, next generation compute, premium VR, and FreeSync 2.
The packing is superb and it designed to stand up to your delivery person on a bad transport day. Inside the box is a quick installation guide and an 8-pin PCIe adapter and screws for installing the radiator into the PC chassis. The back of the box details Vega’s features and also recommends a 1000W power supply as a minimum(!)
The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Edition is styled very well with an aluminum case. The radiator is 120mm and it is connected to the pump inside the card by braided cables.
There is an 8-pin adapter included with the card in case your PSU only supports one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe cable. Here is the other side.
This is the 120mm radiator.
Here is the Fury X pictured with its radiator side by side with the Vega’s cooler. They are the same size.
Here is the connector panel featuring 1 HDMI and 3 DisplayPorts.
The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid cooled edition is a handsome card. AMD has got their second industrial design right. You can change the colors of your lighting and there are two 8-pin PCIe connectors required.
The Radeon Logo lights up and is a perfect counter to NVIDIA’s lighted GeForce. AMD certainly has got a premium looking card with the Liquid cooled RX Vega 64. Let’s check out its performance after we look over our test configuration on the next page.
