2017 AMD Vega Update: AMD RX Vega Leaked Benchmark Shows It's Better Than GTX 1080
Fans finally have gotten their hands on a legitimate 3DMark entry pertaining to AMD's upcoming RX Vega gaming graphics card. This particular database entry is on the flagship reference RX Vega board, code named 687F:C1 and has also given fans a glimpse into what to expect from AMD's upcoming high-end offering in terms of performance.
AMD Radeon RX Vega Specs Details Revealed
The clock speed represents a modest 30MHz improvement over the Vega Frontier Edition and the HBM2 frequency is identical to that of Vega FE which translates to 484GB/s of bandwidth. According to PC Gamers, funnily enough, the AMD Vega translates to 1GB/s of bandwidth per mm² as Vega 10 is 484mm² in size.
In terms of memory capacity, as expected this board, which fans expect to be the Vega 10 flagship in the RX lineup comes equipped with 8GB of HBM2, rather than the exuberant 16GB of the Vega FE. Furthermore, the AMD Vega clock speed has seen a considerable bump to 1630MHz from 1200MHz and HBM2 clock speed has also seen a very significant jump from 700MHz to 945MHz.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 3DMark 11 Performance Benchmark
WCCF Tech reported that the RX Vega manages to score 31,873 graphics points, roughly four thousand points and some change ahead of the GTX 1080 and double that compared to the GTX 1070. However, the GTX 1080 Ti maintains a commanding lead with over 38 thousand points, nearly seven thousand points ahead of Vega.
It's important to point out that 3DMark 11 graphics scores scale exceptionally well with GPU core counts. This is why fans see the GTX 1080 Ti maintaining a solid 39% lead over the GTX 1080 here, where in more realistic real-world gaming scenarios it's ahead by a slightly more modest 34% and 28% at 4K and 2560×1440 respectively.
If fans will put the figures into perspective, the GTX 1080 Ti is ahead of RX Vega by roughly 20%. RX Vega is ahead of the GTX 1080 by 15% and leads the GTX 1070 by 35%. Keeping that in mind, fans will expect that similarly to the GTX 1080 Ti, RX Vega's lead over the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 could shrink in real-world gaming tests depending on the game and the resolution tested.
