    AMD's senior marketing director Chris Hook has taken to Twitter to tease AMD's recently-revealed, non-gaming oriented Vega Frontier Edition graphics card. According to the man, he's testing the Frontier Edition's lighting system, which, as we've seen in renders, is supposed to bring in that yellow shade to the Frontier Edition's brushed aluminum, "Pro Blue" furnishings.

    What we should be paying more attention to, though, is the partial graphics card that stands to the frontier Edition's right side. It's only a partial, granted, but the black and red color scheme is reminiscent of... well... AMD's gaming Radeon graphics cards. Could this actually be meant as a tease for one of the gaming-oriented RX Vega graphics cards?

    Could very well be. Looks like a lit up Radeon logo like on the renders and GPUs on show instead of a silk screened logo like on the RX 480.

    As a Fin I don't like those Swedish colors :laugh:

    Jokes aside. That's obviously just a led test, there's no graphics card under that shroud(no pcie power connectors on it).

    It looks more like they are testing the capabilities of being a paperweight. :shadedshu:

    The old saying is "keep your friends close keep your enemies closer". Maybe AMD understands it as keep your enemies hardware closer :D That would make sense to test AMD's new hardware on the competition hardware also :D

    It looks to me, so much like Intel own GPU try some time ago :

    Intel's was a Co-Processor, with no display outlets on the back.

    That's just a pick of the cooler, there isn't even a card attached to it.

    But we've seen that card before with a clearer shot.
