Trying to keep our community entertained and distracted from the growing pains and expectations of waiting for the death of AMD's imposed NDAs
on Vega reviews is one of our missions. As such, while we know what you want are actual performance numbers, price/performance charts, and an in-depth, independent review, you'll not find such answers in this post. You will find, however, some interesting tidbits on AMD RX Vega designs. In this case, a triple-fan cooling solution for AMD's RX Vega 56 (the smaller Vega).
A behemoth, triple-fan cooling solution isn't all this prototype model (it does have some debug connectors that won't be found in retail versions of a graphics card), showcased by TooliusTech, has going for it. For one, you'll be forgiven for thinking that is a long graphics card; in fact, it's the cooling mechanism that's longest. As you can see from the pictures, roughly 40% of the added length belongs to the cooling solution itself, with the PCB actually being in line with expectations on a GPU paired with HBM2 memory. Another interesting bit this design has going for itself is the usage of 1x 6-pin and 1x 8-pin power connectors, whereas AMD's reference design makes use of 2x 8-pin. Maybe AMD is being especially careful in their reference design after the RX 480's PCIe power hoggling
