Introduction

 

AMD first launched their Radeon RX Vega series of graphics cards with the RX Vega 64 and a much better liquid cooled version that held its GPU and HBM2 clocks during overclocking thanks to the improved cooling on the Radeon RX Vega 64 LCE. With an improved air cooler, will the ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64 keep its GPU clocks?

 

Let's find out.

One of the main selling points of the new ROG Strix RX Vega 64 is that it features ASUS' impressive MaxContact Technology that has "2x more contact with the GPU for improved thermal transfer", but Vega runs so hot that all of this cooling prowess didn't help.

 

But there is another big surprise that ASUS has over AMD and its reference RX Vega 64, and that's overclockability and the noise of the card when it's under 100% load.
