AMD had previously estimated that the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card could attain up to 12.5 TFLOPs in FP32 single-precision compute performance, but the company has upped the ante with the card's retail launch, claiming that it can achieve up to 13.1 TFLOPs.

This basically confirms our beliefs that the consumer version of the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition will be somewhere between the GTX1080 and the GTX1080Ti. "The blue-anodized brushed aluminum shroud and lit Radeon inlays are downright elegant", said Kelt Reeves, president of Falcon Northwest.

Disqus member '#define' got his hands on a brand new AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, and chose to test The Witcher 3 on this GPU.

AMD hooked up the Radeon Vega Frontier to an 8K display from Dell, and a second 1080p display, oh and a HTC Vive headset.

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition has been released and few people have managed to get their hands on this GPU. We also ran Maxon's Cinebench, a popular OpenGL benchmark, in which the Frontier Edition was about 14 percent faster.

The bigger note that the site had to say is that AMD is being beyond disruptive here, something I'm totally on their side with. In its email to HEXUS AMD would rather point out what it considers to be the major selling points of the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition with Radeon Pro Software.

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition delivers the horsepower required for design and manufacturing firms to drive increasingly large and complex models and to deploy real-time visualization and physically-based rendering. Nvidia's Quadro Workstation offers higher performance while Titan Xp works only with consumer drivers. PCWorld took care of some of that, with a 34-inch 3440x1440 UltraWide 21:9 panel and some light gaming.

According to HotHardware, the Radeon Vega Frontier edition was officially planned for launch on 27th of June. We were later given more juicy details about the new GPU when AMD announced the Vega Frontier Edition, which is aimed at users leveraging AI, creative, and deep learning applications.
