AMD announced their new Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 graphics cards, but didn't provide too many details about benchmark numbers in games - but I've got the solution to that.
An industry source of mine has provided me with some raw benchmark numbers on Radeon RX Vega 56, which looks to be the new $400 mainstream king, beating the GTX 1070 in some of the biggest games on the market. My source said that the RX Vega 56 card was running on an Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.2GHz, had 16GB of DDR4-3000MHz RAM, and was running Windows 10.
The benchmarks were run at 2560x1440 with the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 easily beating NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 in Battlefield 1, DOOM, Civilization 6, and even Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. My source said that Battlefield 1 was run on Ultra settings, Civ 6 was on Ultra with 4x MSAA, DOOM was at Ultra with 8x TSAA enabled, and COD:IW was running on its High preset.
Radeon RX Vega 56 benchmark results:
- Battlefield 1: 95.4FPS (GTX 1070: 72.2FPS)
- Civilization 6: 85.1FPS (GTX 1070: 72.2FPS)
- DOOM: 101.2FPS (GTX 1070: 84.6FPS)
- COD:IW: 99.9FPS (GTX 1070: 92.1FPS)
As you can see, the Radeon RX Vega 56 is quite the potent monster at $399... where it not only trades blows with the GeForce GTX 1070, but slaps it around considerably. It looks like we can expect the RX Vega 56 to be a huge 32% faster than the GTX 1070 in BF1 at 1440p.
DOOM results are also interesting, with AMD taking a commanding 20% lead over the GTX 1070 with the RX Vega 56.
We will have the cards in our hands as soon as humanly possible, where I'll be taking the RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 through their paces.
