Radeon RX VEGA 56 Gaming OC 8GB HBM2 PCI-Express Graphics Card

The Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 56 Gaming OC is a true high-end graphics card for gamers that is packed with a range of features that make it ideal for 4K gaming and creating immersive experiences in Virtual Reality (VR). Radeon RX Vega graphics cards are an even more attractive proposition when paired with a FreeSync Monitor, this results in a flawlessly smooth and tear-free display output. As in the reference design, Gigabyte utilises second generation High Bandwith Memory (HBM) to maximise performance.

The 8 GB HBM2-VRAM, is clocked at 800 MHz and is connected to the GPU via a 2048-bit memory interface. One of the unique features of HBM memory is itsplacement directly on the GPU die and not on the board as is normally the case. The GPU of the Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 56 Gaming OC is clocked at 1.170 MHz and can be clocked up to 1.501 MHz in Boost Mode.

The better the cooling of the card, the longer the boost frequencies can be maintained. The cooling of the graphics card is supplied via the semi-passive WindForce 2X cooler design that consists of multiple heatpipes, two aluminium heatsinks with large surface areas and two large fans. The fan speeds are adjusted according to the loads, meaning that under office operations it functions in complete silence. The special "Triangle Fan Edge Design" of the fan blades allows up to 23 percent greater airflow than competing fans. The pre-installed backplate increases PCB stability and supplies a further heatpipe for extra cooling.

The Features of the Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 56 Gaming OC:

  • Semi-passive Windforce 2X cooler design
  • 8 GB High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2)
  • 56 Next-Gen Compute Units (NCUs; 4.096 Shader)
  • Base Clock: 1.170 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1.501 MHz
  • High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
  • Rapid Packed Math (RPM) of the NCUs
  • New Programmable Geometry Pipeline
  • Enhanced Pixel Engine

The Architecture of AMD Radeon Vega Graphics Cards

The Vega architecture not only contains a variety of optimisation in comparison to the Graphics Core Next architecture of previous generations, instead it represents a completely new element. In this way Vega GPU architecture builds on a foundation consisting of four new pillars:

  • High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
  • Rapid Packed Math (RPM) of Next-Gen Compute Units (NCU)
  • New Programmable Geometry Pipeline
  • Enhanced Pixel Engine

High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)

AMD’s High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) The High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) enables a marked improvement in the effective utilisation of the HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) modules when compared to Fiji-generation GPUs which were the first to benefit from this unique type of memory. The HBC Controller also allows for highly efficient memory control as well as increasing the minimum Frames per Second (FPS) in many games by up to 100% and the maximum FPS by more than 50%. In practical terms this amounts to a doubling of the 8 GB HBM2-VRAM of the Radeon RX Vega to 16 GB!

Next-Gen Compute Unit (NCU) & Rapid Packed Math (RPM)

Rapid Packed Math (RPM) of the Next-Gen Compute Units (NCU) Rapid Packed Math (RPM) is a feature of the Next-Gen Compute Unit (NCU) and utilises the highly flexible core structure of the new compute units. For example, RPM accelerates FP16 calculations to allow mathematically-oriented processes to be calculated more quickly. With RPM activated this doubles the number of calculations capable of being carried out per second without requiring additional resources. Rapid Packed Math is of particular benefit to physics-based calculations, as seen in large explosions featuring in games.

New Programmable Geometry Pipeline

The New Programmable Geometry Pipeline von AMD Vega The new programmable geometry pipeline of the Vega architecture is capable of processing, thanks to its efficient load balancing, many millions of polygons simultaneously. The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Air offers a maximum geometry calculation capacity of 11 polygons (with the help of 4 Geometry Units) per clock, doubling that of the Radeon R9 Fury X with its 4 polygons per clock. Modelling applications in particular benefit from this, and furthermore this enables large 3D models to be renders in near real-time.

Enhanced Pixel Engine

The Enhanced Pixel Engine also unleashes an optimised Shade Unit design, one which provides notable performance increases at high resolutions (WQHD, UHD) and in displaying virtual reality. In specific terms the Enhanced Pixel Engine provides a new rasterizer technology which optimises cache localisation while creating more efficient rendering processes.

In order for the card to reach its maximum potential, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD website.
