Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is Here

We are proud to announce that the Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is available for purchase from select regions today!  When we first mentioned this card back in May, we said that it is for the pioneers of the world.  Those who see boundaries as starting lines, and who risk everything in pursuit of innovation. Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is now here to help expand the boundaries of what’s possible.  We are empowering the next generation of pioneers to help drive the new digital world.

The Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is the pinnacle of AMD graphics technology.  It is the first in a full line of graphics cards and accelerators based on the “Vega” GPU architecture.  Breakthrough technologies and advanced features like our High Bandwidth Cache Controller, Enhanced Geometry Engine and Pixel Engine, and double-rate 16-bit math, all combine to enrich a users’ experience with this groundbreaking graphics card.
