    XFX shares custom Radeon RX Vega design photos

    The PCB is so short that the power connectors are in the middle of the graphics card.

    I'm not sure how much third party designs and cooling will matter. Even custom liquid cooling didn't really help much, apart from making it run quieter...

    JayzTwoCents found quite a bit of difference iirc. It was able to maintain much higher boost speeds with a decent cooling system.

    Not in my experience. With my Vega64 fan set to max and +50% power limit, I couldn't sustain actual clocks above 1670MHz core/1070MHz HBM for TimeSpy graphics scores of around 7600, nor the hairdryer levels of noise. With more realistic fan speeds (but still noticeable), I had to keep it around 1600/1040 undervolted and a lower power level, and got TS graphics scores around 7200.

    I put a EK water block on it, and now it happily sits above 1730MHz/1095MHz and TS near 8200 with the same driver (17.8.2).

    These are to little too late, think about how long the GTX 1080 has been around with decent coolers, the only people that will be buying these are those with Freesync monitors, I've got Freesync but had my 1070 for over a year and really can't be bothered selling it off losing money to sidegrade just for Freesync, I'll wait for Volta/Vega now and then decide if I want to change back to AMD.
