The launch of our Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics cards are imminent! Sure, we’re thrilled about the potential of our forward-looking Vega architecture and the horsepower it brings to enthusiast gamers, but our partners are equally excited. Here’s what just a few of them are saying:


“We are excited to offer AMD’s new Radeon™ RX Vega graphics technology in select Alienware desktop systems over the coming months. Alienware is committed to offering the best gaming experience at any level and we expect the new ‘Vega’ architecture with its new High-Bandwidth Cache and Cache Controller to bring gamers incredible performance thanks to its remarkably fast access to a larger virtual memory space.” – Frank Azor, VP and GM, Alienware, Dell Gaming and XPS


“For a gamer, stepping up to a ‘Vega’ card is like having terrible vision and putting on a pair of glasses for the first time. You thought you were seeing before, but you weren’t. The level of fidelity and performance you’re going to get out of a ‘Vega’ card will make you feel like you’re playing video games again for the very first time.” – Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing, Bethesda Softworks


“Using AMD’s open source TressFX tool we were able to create beautiful and realistic hair with very smooth frame-rates. We also created stunningly beautiful volumetric fog which leveraged Vega’s new FP16 technology to achieve real-time rendering. AMD’s GPUOpen tools have helped us develop a better product and faster; a better experience for us and a better experience for gamers.” – Hu Zhi Peng, Producer on Ni Shui Han, NetEase


“AMD’s new Radeon™ RX Vega graphics cards paired with Samsung’s stunning FreeSync™-enabled monitors provide gamers with the highest fidelity and lowest latency in their favorite games. Samsung has embraced Radeon FreeSync™ technology from the very beginning, which is why we partnered with AMD on Radeon Packs, a new initiative which brings the best of Radeon™ and Samsung together at a terrific value.” – Andrew Sivori, Vice President, Consumer IT Marketing at Samsung Electronics America

SK Hynix:

“We’re thrilled to be playing an integral role in AMD’s return to the high-end graphics market. ‘Vega’s’ revolutionary memory architecture takes advantage of leading-edge HBM2 technology, which transfers terabytes of data every second, doubling the bandwidth-per-pin over the previous generation HBM technology. We can’t wait for gamers and professional content creators to get their hands on ‘Vega’ products. AMD has a history of bringing advanced new technologies to the mainstream, and Radeon™ RX Vega carries on that tradition.” – Kevin Widmer, VP of technical marketing, SK Hynix.

Sujoy Roy:

“Any gamer knows how excruciating it is when a screen tear or stutter interrupts your flow: it jolts you out of the game and, if you’re in a tournament, can be the difference between victory or defeat. I play on a 240Hz FreeSync™ monitor and I love it – I feel like I’m in the game again. It’s quite a nostalgic feeling, taking me back to the smooth silkiness of the classic CRT monitor. eSports professionals and enthusiast gamers alike demand the best performance from their GPUs to get what they need out of every frame; with a FreeSync™ monitor lit up by a Radeon™ RX Vega, you’re set.” – Sujoy Roy, the UK’s first professional gamer


“We’re super excited to announce that Far Cry 5 is collaborating with AMD. On Far Cry, we want to be pushing what we can do graphically. We know this brand started on PC, and we know it’s really important to the people who have been with Far Cry from the beginning. When we think about what we want to do in the future and what we want to be able to build, we want a collaborative partner that’s going to ask us where we want to go and how we want to push it. AMD gives us that.” – Dan Hay, executive producer of Far Cry 5, Ubisoft
