Final week, PowerColor introduced two customized Radeon RX Vega graphics playing cards: the Crimson Satan RX Vega 64 and Crimson Satan RX Vega 56. With triple-fan coolers and a pair of.5-slot broad designs, each playing cards come factory-overclocked and encased a black-with-red shroud with metallic backplate, very a lot typical of PowerColor’s high-end Crimson Satan collection. The Crimson Satan RX Vega 64, earlier listed on Overclockers UK, is now listed on Newegg however out-of-stock, with the OCUK itemizing offering an estimated delivery date of December eight.
Nearly 4 months because the launch of the reference Radeon RX Vega 64, customized RX Vega playing cards have been gradual to trickle out. For shoppers, the Crimson Satan RX Vega playing cards have a lot of the weather anticipated of customized boards: expansive cooling resolution, zero fanspeed idle (branded “Mute Fan”), and the inevitable LED. Each Crimson Satan RX Vega 64 and 56 primarily share the identical design, however solely the RX Vega 64’s full clockspeeds had been detailed; PowerColor is stating a 1417MHz base and 1607MHz enhance, placing it within the realm of the reference Liquid Cooled version of 1406/1677MHz. The enhance clock of the Crimson Satan RX Vega 56 was reported elsewhere to be 1526MHz, however in any other case has the reference 800MHz HBM2 clockspeed.

Nonetheless, the heatsink options two 8mm and 4 6mm heatpipes, and the 1.5mm metallic backplate comes geared up with an extra cross bracket supporting the HBM. The boards function a 12 section energy design with what PowerColor calls Platinum PowerKIT VRMs. Whereas TDP was not disclosed, the playing cards are listed with a 750W system energy requirement, and have twin 8pin PCIe energy connectors just like the reference designs.
By way of multi-BIOS, the Crimson Satan RX Vega playing cards function three BIOS modes: Silent, Commonplace, and OC. What every mode precisely entails isn’t clear, however PowerColor does describe Silent as using Mute Fan that kicks in when temperatures are under 60 levels; elsewhere it was detailed as easy thermal profile and energy restrict changes. Show output sensible, PowerColor have opted to go for a 2x HDMI configuration within the curiosity of compatibility with VR setups, which may embody an HDMI headset and HDMI TV show.
Lastly – and to some, leastly – the Crimson Satan playing cards do function token LED performance, though maybe fortunately restricted to the toggleable “Crimson Satan” lighting inset on the high of the cooling shroud.
As talked about earlier, the PowerColor Radeon RX Vega 64 is listed on Newegg at $620 with a $50 rebate, out-of-stock at the moment however explicitly qualifying for the Wolfenstein II & Prey bundle.
