XFX Launches Custom RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 Double Edition Graphics Cards

After teasing us with a somewhat bold design for their custom RX Vega graphics cards, XFX has officially taken the lid of their finalized design for their RX Vega graphics cards. These have been a long time coming, for sure; and the design is definitely bold enough to be divisive, promising to be a "hate it or love it" affair. XFX has taken their brand-recognition-fueled X and applied that design to the graphics cards' shroud, with a recess in the middle of the graphics cards that separates the two air cooling fans giving the card an X-shaped design. This design quirk has been put to other uses than just aesthetic considerations, though, with the card's 2x 8-pin power connectors being slotted smack in the middle of the graphics card, which might be good (or bad) according to your cases' routing ability, though it should, in theory, allow for somewhat decreased length of the graphics card. The backplate on the XFX custom cards also looks great (black, gray and red are almost impossible to get wrong).
The finalized versions carry a two-slot cooling solution with 2x 8-pin power connectors - to be expected, but which somewhat constitutes a surprise for the more powerful RX Vega 64, since other early AIB partner designs have been deploying a trio of 8-pin connectors on that particular graphics card. As for connections, there's 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI connectors, with the top slot being fully dedicated to airflow. Availability for the XFX Double Edition graphics cards hasn't been disclosed at time of writing, but clocks for these are seemingly stock (1247 MHz base, 1546 MHz Boost for the RX Vega 64, and 1156 MHz base, 1471 MHz Boost for the Vega 56).

Wow, I'm digging this one. This actually looks really nice, especially the cut out PCB.

I'm wondering about those OCD people who are going to have quite a time trying to hide the power cables.

Then again they will use those extension cables with colors.

It's hard to beat this card in an ugliness contest. But did it really need 2 8pin power connectors on top?

Pcb doesn't seem to be cut out, look at the third pic. The pcb appears to be the same as the one used on the Fury Nano.

If there's a will, there's a way.

Yes, I meant backplate, not PCB which is short and hidden.

Love how ugly it is!
But why did they had to block the airflow of the rear fan with that backplate so much....:shadedshu:
This might be mine...

Be an adult already... it has nothing to do with that.

If you think the "in your face" design is better than bland. But hey, to each their own, we're not here to set our tastes "right".

Double vega 64 , not bad idea (like 295) ...
I can imagine some like frontier two chip, water cooling with 240mm one big radiator. but 16gb of ram for whole 8+8 .. for cheaper end price ..

Not just that. Also "double" and "dual" in nomenclature.
...At least the color scheme looks good. :laugh:

Excellent cooling solution. :rockout:I think that this card will get a water block and it will be very nice . It is a small and powerful GPU that has not yet shown the full potential. AMD it is late with drivers as they usually have some rhythm to work , and it's time for monsoon .The new VR bench showed potential which is hidden there .GL:toast:

Not sure I like it. Looks like a Bra.

Not that there is anything wrong with Bra's. Just not on GPU's for me.

Of course there's something wrong with bras. There's a reason we take them off whenever we get the chance :D

or just give up on sugar coating it, and say "mere words cannot describe this level of ugliness"
