PowerColor Confirms Plans for Mini-ITX Radeon RX Vega: Due Next Month

Over the past few months, we have seen two makers of video cards laying the groundwork for Mini-ITX graphics adapters based on the Radeon RX Vega GPU. This week PowerColor confirmed that its small form-factor Radeon RX Vega is incoming and will be showcased next month at Computex.

PowerColor’s RX Vega 56 Nano Edition will be based on a PCB that resembles the one used for the Red Dragon RX 56 card introduced in late March. The new graphics adapter will feature four display outputs: three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0b. As for power connectors, it will have one 8-pin and one 6-pin header.

The board will be outfitted with a dual-slot cooler featuring one large fan and heat pipes. Keeping in mind that AMD’s original Radeon RX Vega 56 with 8 GB of HBM2 memory dissipates up to 210 W and it is doubtful that the aforementioned cooling system can dissipate this amount of thermal energy, it is highly likely that the RX Vega 56 Nano Edition will feature a GPU with a reduced power consumption. Therefore, the main intrigue about the card is how exactly PowerColor and AMD reduced the TDP of the GPU.

Production of AMD’s Radeon RX Vega GPU is in full swing, so expect PowerColor to start sales of the product shortly after its first demonstration at Computex. Pricing of the RX Vega 56 Nano Edition adapter is unknown and given the market situation, it is not a good business to make predictions here.
