Soon very soon.....XFX or Sapphire will funk me up
Vega bandwidth in GPUz
I love my Vega 56
I'm quite fond of my Vega 64 too
What's surprising to me is how well the Fury X seems to be holding, how bad the Vega driver must be, or a combo of all that.
Our Furys are Great (only if not exceeded 4GB In All games with Ultra Add. Textures you need to have V.High not Ultra and your OK e.g. AC:O & Shadow of War)
VEGA driver is not ready yet, when it will be then it will be fastest GPU until Vega2 12nm show up.
I have had the best time in GTA V so far with the 17.11.1 drivers.
Stable clocks, for one. Its not dropping down to the 1500's anymore after 20-30mins.
Not tried too many games yet, might do a run through later today.
Technically, and looking at the RAW specs, the Vega64 is more powerful than the 1080Ti, apart from ROPS.
On the Wiki page, it has trhe values for the Liquid cooled edition, and I can hold those clocks no prblem, and with the Memory at 1100MHz (whoch gives over 614GB/s of bandwidth).
Following from my previous post, I have no problems in any of the games I have played recently, but which are not recent themselves.
Fallout 4, GTA V, Skyrim SE, STALKER CoP : Misery 2.2 (if only I could stay alive for more than 10 minutes...), No Mans Sky.....
I have other games, but they are older.
Here V64 after a round of BF1 Ultra 1080p @ 144Hz in a room with nearly 30°C ambient temp.
AMD RX Vega Gets 22% Performance Uplift In Wolfenstein 2 After Latest Patch!
AMD Radeon graphics cards, and especially the Vega series, demonstrated exceptionally good performance in Wolfenstein 2 upon the game’s release.
Performance that has seen no less than a 22% uplift with the game’s latest patch, computerbase.de reports.
Just bought the 64 LC from Overclockers for £599, knocked £100 off
Now Good 1440p 10Bit Freesync Monitor and you're in Gamers Heaven
Im happy with my BenQ XL2730Z
Overclockers got the PowerColor Red Devil 64 up for pre-order, £590!
That's not too bad for a Vega 64...which just serves to highlight how pricey the things are (at least here.) compared to the MSRP. Heh.
EDIT: Converted to Euro it comes to 665 when converted from Pound.
And after doing a quick check the regular Vega 64 air cooler is currently found around 5500 - 6000 SEK or around 560 - 600 EUR so an additional 100 Eur is pretty on par with third party models especially just after launch before prices normalize a bit.
Still expensive though and still not a definitive upgrade over current higher-end AMD GPU's though when it does excel it can pull ahead by about 40% or so over the Fury plus it has the VRAM advantage.
But that price makes the 1080 or 1080Ti more attractive until (if ever.) it comes down to MSRP levels, was down to 4500 - 5000 SEK for a while but now pricing here is up a bit again so not yet stable.
Though there's a chance the third party models will stabilize the reference models now.
(Blower fan configurations have their advantages but they can get a bit loud and the GPU will throttle short of using water cooling.)
EDIT: Would definitively be fun seeing reviews of these though if Hilbert can get one of these or the Sapphire one, guessing overall performance might not be too different from the stock model when it performs at peak levels but cooling, noise and the throttling issue could be better.
Will also be interesting to see later on if drivers can actually get some more out of these GPU's or if features like HBCC and the others that might not be entirely active yet are a dud though it would be nice if AMD could get these working without requiring per-game specific support even if it might not work as well or for every feature Vega was touted to bring.
Bloody hell, Congratulations
Thanks, should be here in the next hr or so
