    You guys are making me jealous. I wish we had the LC Vega's for sale in my country. Hell, it's almost impossible to find any kind of Vega's here.

    Despite that, better to check if they ship you the GPU :D
    IMO Caseking/OC UK shiping everywhere.

    Good idea is to check on E-bay/Amazon (I mean Shops)

    AMD Adding HDR To Freesync 2 Rebrand Now Titled FreeSync 2 HDR and Increases Minimum HDR Requirement

    AMD FreeSync 2 HDR Supports At Least HDR600 And More

    The AMD rep in question further clarified on what specifications are required for a monitor to receive FreeSync 2 HDR certification: support for at least HDR600, coverage of 99 percent of BT.709 and 90 percent of the DCI P3 color spectrum.
    Also mentioned that there was a minimum response time, though what the exact value is remains unknown to us.

    A rather interesting point that we noticed from AMD’s change, though, is that this one is more than just cosmetic: AMD’s original FreeSync 2 certification program required displays to only be able to adhere to HDR400.
    TechPowerup covered one of these FreeSync 2 monitors that only supported that standard of HDR 400, instead of the aforementioned HDR600 the company will apparently start enforcing alongside the renewed “FreeSync 2 HDR” program.
    Here’s hoping for a stricter certification program from AMD in this regard, since HDR400 was a push in itself towards being true HDR and a far cry from some of the HDR 1000 monitors on the G-Sync side.
    Though with FreeSync 2 already having all the market support and recognition it needs to now start increasing its requirements for quality support instead of mainly quantity. AMD has been sucessful in market penetration, now is the time to raise the standards so that monitor companies are forced to keep up.

    A user over at AMD's Reddit page made a comparison between the R9 Fury (Non-X I believe.) and the Vega 64 Liquid. :)

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/8tcn8s/r9_fury_performance_vs_vega_64_in_2018_tested_i/

    Direct link to the video would be this:


    And then Wolfenstein 2 here but with textures down one notch as to not overburden the Fury as much although the game still works with Vega's features to deliver a pretty significant framerate advantage.


    The X version of the Fury would be a bit faster and since it's the liquid cooled version of the V64 that's going to be a bit above the stock speeds of the other Vega models too.
    (And as Wolfenstein 2 demonstrates a bit then yeah VRAM limits can be a pain. :D )


    EDIT: Covers a few different games (Division, DOOM4, Wolfenstein 2, Witcher 3, Prey, Vermintide 2, Hitman 2016, Arkham Knight, Far Cry 5 and Shadow of War) using the 18.6.1 driver, was nice seeing a up to date comparison against the early launch day reviews for the GPU too.

    1080p and 1440 so no 2160 tests.
    (Vega can do alright at this resolution but might see some dips depending on game.)

    I wonder where is HBCC (HBM cache) in Registry?
    I have some strange number in Adrenalin 11.760MB (it's like 11GB but in Games e.g. Shadow of War it showing 12GB VRAM)
    Hmm, someone care to elaborate on the matter? :eek:

    @JonasBeckman
    My Vega is 2xFaster on Average in Minimum FPS in almost any Heavy Game.
    Considering Ultra Preset (I do not use All Ultra in Fury)
    Shadow of Mordor or SoWar - Lows 0.1% is like 34FPS vs ~74FPS

    Do you by chance have HBCC Memory Segment enabled? I would check that first...as it can use system ram to add to Vram in games/ software that want more then 8 GB of Vram...it does this dynamically when enabled.

    I have it ON with 512MB Default.
    In SoW it shows 12.5GB free ;) every Game is working great.

    I've Played Forza H3 today with my Bratan', 3h of smooth Ultra 4xMSAA+FXAA Experience :D

    It's always nice to see how some older games that took a huge toll on GPU's at the time of release, perform with the latest tech. Great to see both GPU's doing well. I do myself revisit these type of games after a few years. It's nice to see someone take the time to do this.

    So my First Mod for Vega 64 XTX arrived today :D
    Looking at Hot-spot temps. i've noticed ~72deg Max temp (not bad) so i.ve installed my DeepCool 12cm Fan in Push/pull Config
    Now Hot-Spot temp is ~62deg ! lol in Best conditions i have lowered Temps for ~10deg on average !

    This Fan was originally in my Corsair 750D Obsidian SilentO Build -> now again it has a purpose ! :p
    UPD. and i've turned On VEGA Tachometr :D (Now It glows Red, after month i try Blue one :rolleyes:)

    Well done on getting LC Vega :)
    My Vega64, which i watercooled after the fact, can only hit 1685MHz.
    The LC chips are much better binned than the aircooled ones, or i've got an average chip (and you've got a very good one looking at your clocks :))

    Pics please. My hot spot temp is my only troublesome temp. I am air cooled but on a LC bios. /edit I just realized what you did. I am slow this morning. No need for a pic.
