AMD had already made a splash, announcing its new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card, last month. However, details about its price and availability weren’t disclosed, back then. After a considerable development, now the company has officially revealed all of it, about this high-performance graphics card.
As declared earlier, the graphics card is available in two different configurations, such as air cooling and liquid cooling. Now as per the announcement, the air cooled version has been made available for purchase, since yesterday for $999. But sadly, the liquid cooled version will only be available by Q3 of this year, holding a price tag of $1499.
Further, the AMD’s intelligent works collaborated with this card, can empower the next generation data scientists, game designers and visualization professionals. Yes, the new graphics card can render high performance than the other comparable rivals, such as NVIDIA Titan Xp.

Interestingly, the firm even encourages all the gamer, to wait for the next Vega series, which will soon see the light of the day anytime by this year.
