A recent image leak by TooliusTech shows a massive heat sink based Radeon RX Vega 56 prototype, pictured along with RX Vega 64 and Radeon Pro WX 9100. The content confidentiality of image leak is questionable, but since the prototype is pictured side by side with two other upcoming GPUs, we assume here that source is good.
The RX VEGA 56 Prototype features three fans, large heat sink extending further ahead from a short PCB of GPU. The interesting thing to note here is that unlike the base reference model of Radeon RX Vega 56, this prototype sports both six and eight-pin power connections.
Previously, Radeon R9 Fury non-X protorype variant by AIBs came with massive triple fans sitting on massive heatsink. The same trend is found with Radeon RX VEGA 56 Prototype.
Regardless of good image source leak, this news comes under the banner of leaked information. We suggest to take the news as grain of salt, until AMD comes up and mentions the hardware officially.
AMD has announced that Radeon RX Vega 56 will retail at $399. The full review of performance and power run of Radeon RX 56 is expected coming Monday, we wait and see how better RX Vega 56 performs.
In parallel news, Gigabyte has announced its variant of Radeon RX Vega 56, which will have following hardware specifications:
