A YouTuber has tested AMD's Radeon Vega Frontier Edition in "DOOM" and compared it with both NVIDIA's GTX1080 and GTX1080Ti graphics cards. The results also fall in line with what fans are basically expecting from the gaming/consumer variant of the upcoming Vega GPU.

AMD Radeon Vega Runs "DOOM" Faster Than The NVIDIA GTX1080

DSO Gaming reported that the AMD's Radeon Vega Frontier Edition runs DOOM faster than the NVIDIA GTX1080. However, it is still slower than the GTX1080Ti.

The performance difference between the GTX1080Ti and the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is around 23%. So in this particular title fans might see the RX Vega coming close to NVIDIA's flagship that is if AMD will be able to offer a 20% faster performance.

Furthermore, AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card is not meant for gamers but for workstation users. Still, this can give us a slight idea of what fans can expect from its consumer counterpart.

AMD Vega 10 Graphics Card Specs

According to IsportsTimes, the AMD Vega 10 features 4,096 stream processors and 256 texture mapping units. Its compute units are arranged in two islets, which house two compute engines that include two distinct compute clusters. The computer clusters, on the other hand, features the 512 stream processors and 32 texture mapping units.

The AMD Vega 10 graphics card offers 64 render output units and 2048-bit HBM2 memory interface. It also offers two HBM2 stacks that can be configured with up to 15 GB. Moreover, the RX Vega 10 can potentially hit 12.5 teraflops of single precision processing, PCGamesN reports.

AMD Vega 10 Beats Frontier Edition Graphics Card

Reports also revealed that the AMD Vega 10 is much better in gaming than the Frontier Edition. "Consumer RX will be much better optimized for all the top gaming titles and flavors of RX Vega will actually be faster than Frontier version!" Koduri said during a Reddit AMA in May, PC World reports. However, AMD's Jason Evangelho reminded gamers that the RX Vega 10 graphics card is specifically defined and optimized for games. Meanwhile, the Frontier Edition was designed and optimized for a vastly different set of tasks and use cases aimed at the professional market.
