Gigabyte's Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC Custom Graphics Card Pictured

Remember previous reports that Gigabyte wouldn't be launching a custom version for AMD's RX Vega graphics cards? Always remember that facts can change, and what is true today could see itself being rendered a myth by lunchtime tomorrow. Case in point: previous reports pegged Gigabyte as skipping custom versions of AMD's RX Vega GPUs, due to both availability and manufacturing issues. However, as Videocardz reports (with pictures!), that may no longer be the case.

Apparently, Gigabyte has received a new batch of AMD RX Vega GPUs just in time for the mid-October expected release window of RX Vega custom cards, and are already at work on a Gaming OC custom version of the graphics card with a dual fan configuration (likely a revised WindForce 2X cooler). The card is expected to feature an output configuration of 3x HDMI + 3x DisplayPort, and in Videocardz image comparison, occupies slightly more space in our usual three dimensions than the AMD reference design (as expected).

Wait, wasn't Gigabyte the one saying they aren't interested in making Vega 64 aftermarket card. And yet, here it is. :/ I guess a sale is a sale. Just this timeframe... We all thought we'd have a hard launch of ALL versions in end of July 2017. Now it'll be mid October 2017. This is why I went for NVIDIA for the second time in the row. Tired of endlessly waiting. Otherwise I'd probably own both, Fury and Vega. Your loss AMD.

Guru3d debunked that. They contacted Gigabyte and they confirmed that they would be making custom Vega 64. Never got to only one source of information!

That looks like a two-slot bracket on a three-slot card...

Did you notice 6 display outputs? Looks like 3 DP and 3 HDMI. Could that be right?

Yeah, just has more internal DP->HDMI adapters. But yes, bizarre.
