$1199 US Radeon Vega FE shows up in retail

That’s quite expensive ...

According to the latest rumors from our friends over at Videocardz, the next generation of AMD graphics cards, which will be based on the upcoming Vega architecture has been spotted in a retail shop. AMD's Radeon Vega cards may be amongst the most anticipated product family of the year. According to Scan UK and SabrePC in the USA, the Vega Frontier Edition should cost $1199 US.

As you might know, AMD is going to offer two different Vega cards. The first one will feature an air cooler while the second one comes with a water cooling loop with single radiator, similar to the Fury X. According to the latest rumors, the air-cooled Frontier Edition will cost $1199 dollar, while the liquid cooled version of the card will come with a whopping $1799 dollar. In the UK the prices are similar: the air cooler version should cost £1139.99, while the liquid-cooled FE will go for £1656.49.

Sadly the product page doesn't reveal any further detail about this upcoming series of graphics cards. We’re curious to see whether AMD is going to clock the water cooled cards higher than the air cooled versions. But to find that out we have to wait until the launch date of 27th June.

So far the prices appear to be ridiculously high and AMD would have had to find quite a lot of performance in their Vega chips to justify such a price tag. We actually wouldn’t be surprised if mentioning these prices is just a simple marketing trick to draw attention.
