ASUS ROG Strix Vega 64 Unboxed: The First Custom RX Vega

Final Thoughts

 

If you were expecting large leaps in performance from the ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64... you'll be disappointed. If you were expecting big drops in temperatures, you'd also be wrong. I'll cover all of this in the full review in the coming days, but ASUS does what they can with the ROG Strix RX Vega 64.

One of the best parts of what ASUS has done with the card is that with the fans spinning at 100%, the card isn't awfully loud, unlike the reference AMD cards which are freakin' monsters when their fans are cranked up. During all of my benchmarking the card would stick under 70C with the fans at 100%, roughly the same results as the reference card, but it was magnitudes quieter than the reference card with the fans at 100% speed.

 

All in all, if you want to get a Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card, then the ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64 is for you. More so if you're a FreeSync monitor owner, and didn't want to make the shift to a G-Sync display. I wouldn't bother buying reference right now, jump straight into the arms of the ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64 instead.
