AMD RX Vega pictured

AMD RX Vega has been pictured, with a cooler design that is reminiscent of AMD's reference RX 480 design.



Read more on AMD's Radeon RX Vega.

I do feel AMD could do with a little less looking like bricks/box coolers. Then again, there's always aftermarket cooled solutions.

TBH as far as reference designs so I'd say focus on cooler performance. Yes, the Nvidia Founders Edition cooler looks nice, but do we really need all that metal and all those fancy angles?

I know a lot of people would prefer to have a GPU that is a little cheaper, aftermarket cards and water blocks will come afterwards for the people who want more cooling performance and a better aesthetic.

I just hope that AMD can offer a great price/performance ratio.

I think it having the bargain bin cooler will hurt sales, why make your halo product look like it was produced as cheaply as possible.

Doesn't bother me personally. I actually like the understated look. What will bother me is if it is another crappy all aluminum block with a tiny bit of copper for the plate.
