The company has since shown off its new logo/branding for Radeon RX Vega, testing RX Vega with AMD's own Ryzen 7 1800X processor and Battlefield 1 at 3440x1440 on a beautiful FreeSync-powered UltraWide display. There was also another gaming PC next to it running NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 (and not the GTX 1080 Ti) pitted against Radeon RX Vega.

The GeForce GTX 1080 powered gaming PC had the same 34-inch display and native 3440x1440 resolution, but was a G-Sync panel, compared to the RX Vega powered PC and its FreeSync Display. Both monitors were covered so you couldn't tell the difference between the systems, making it a blind test.

AMD didn't have FPS counters on the machines, but Szunyogg said on Reddit:

  • The AMD rep guy was asked and he said it's a GTX 1080 non Ti against the RX VEGA
  • We were given 2 systems with an RX and a GTX to play BF1 on.
  • They do use free- and g-sync and yes there were no fps counters. From my experience there were no fps drops on any of the systems.
  • There was a little hiccup, but they resolved it in an instant and from my experience and many others the difference was unnoticeable. Mind you we were not told and are not going to be told which setup is which.

AMD will taking Radeon RX Vega to Portland and LA next, hitting PDXLAN between July 21-23 and LA for SIGGRAPH on July 30.
