AMD's new Radeon Vega Frontier workstation graphics cards are now available for pre-order from selected outlets, but get ready for some sticker shock.
The cards are priced at $1,199/£1,139 for the air-cooled version, and $1,799/£1,656 for the water-cooled version.
Both cards feature 16 GB of HBC RAM, 4096 stream processors, 64 compute units, 483 GB/s of memory bandwidth, 13.1 TFLOPS of peak single-precision compute performance, 26.2 TFLOPS of peak double-precision compute performance, and feature three DisplayPort 1.4 HBR3/HDR ports, and a single HDMI port.
Neither card is overclocked, and none of the listings gives us a core clock speed.
An estimated ship date for the cards is also absent.
Exxact Corp has quick comparison chart pitting the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition against Nvidia's Pascal-based Titan XP, and the Radeon card comes out on top.
Both these cards are workstation offerings, more suited to machine intelligence, deep learning, and high-end game development (specifically VR game design), than gaming.
