Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Begins Shipping, Costs ~$1200 USD

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition has begun shipping today as the Vega-based compute card geared to go up against the Titan Xp and P100 accelerators for compute/workstation workloads. This is the first Vega GPU card to market, but will come at a hefty cost.

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is available today and offers 13.1 TFLOPs of single-precision FP32 compute power, 26.2 TFLOPS of FP16 performance, 16GB of memory on a 2048-bit interface, 483GB/s of memory bandwidth, and its high bandwidth cache controller allows extending the GPU memory up to 256TB. But this will set you back quite a bit if you want your hands on Vega today: $1150~1200 USD is the price the card is starting out at today in the US (Update: AMD has now said the air-cooled Vega Frontier will carry a suggested price of $999 USD).

Would be interesting to see exactly how well the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition does under Linux with compute using ROCm, but unfortunately, no review samples.
