According to Korea Portal, the former is a new GPU set that will first debut with Apple's iMac Pro. Looking at its specifications, it appears like the AMD Radeon RX Vega is exactly what the fans thought it would be, a powerful system aimed especially towards professionals.

Apple's iMac Pro will be the first to debut the AMD Radeon Vega graphics card, as reported by GameDebate. Hence, there will be two different Radeon Vega graphics card, one called Radeon Pro Vega 56 and the other, the Radeon Pro Vega 64.

While the former packs 3,584 cores; the latter sports 4,096 cores. Both of these will be available with 8GB and 16GB HBM2 respectively.

Meanwhile, the performance figures on the upcoming AMD graphics cards haven't revealed yet. However, on the basis of several speculations, it has been believed that the Vega Pro 64 model and Vega Pro 56 model will come with a total memory bandwidth of 400GB/s.

Apple isn't going to launch its recently-announced iMac Pro anytime soon as it may come to believe that the device will be launched sometime later this year. However, the Radeon RX Vega GPUs will probably launch by the end of next month or in early August.

AMD Radeon RX Vega Mid-Range Graphics Cards Price

According to ISportsTimes, the high-end RX Vega Nova is rumored to retail for $599 as it makes it $100 cheaper than its rival Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti. It's unclear whether the reduced price means slower performance as well.
