Asus has debuted what may be the world’s first custom Vega-based graphics card called the ROG Strix RX Vega 56 Gaming. It looks very similar to the company’s older Strix-branded graphics cards, featuring the same triple-fan cooling solution along with a massive all black cooler shroud. The graphics card is also equipped with LED-lit areas which are, of course, compatible with Asus’ Aura Sync.
The ROG Strix RX Vega 56 Gaming graphics card will feature technologies like MaxContact, patented Wing-Blade IP5X-certified fans, FanConnect II, Auto-Extreme, and a few others – all of which will, hopefully, allow the graphics card to perform better and be much “cooler” compared to the reference Radeon RX Vega 56. It’s worth noting that this graphics card draws power via two 8-pin power connectors.
Video output of the ROG Strix RX Vega 56 Gaming include: one DVI port as well as two HDMI and DisplayPort ports each. Interestingly, Asus also has a factory overclocked variant of this graphics card called the ROG Strix RX Vega 56 Gaming OC. This graphics card should feature slightly higher clock speeds than the non-OC variant.
Speaking of which, Asus has not revealed the base and boost clock speeds of either graphics card at the time of writing. Likewise, pricing and date of availability were not detailed either.
