Want To Buy Radeon? Buy ASUS

 

ASUS is the only one on the market with a custom Radeon RX Vega 64, and while they don't see a huge performance jump, the improved cooling technology helps in a big way. Instead of a card that's screaming at 5000RPM, we have a triple-fan cooler that spins much slower and still keeps the Vega 10 GPU nice and cool.

If you were an owner of a 1080p or 1440p monitor, and were upgrading from your older Radeon R9 200 series graphics card, and were fortunate enough to buy a FreeSync panel, you are in luck. If you have a 60Hz refresh, you can easily smash into any game on the market at 60FPS average. If you have a 120-165Hz monitor and wanted to play something like CS:GO or Rocket League, you'll also be home with the ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64 graphics card.

 

 

For those who want to game at 4K, you will want to skip the Radeon RX Vega 64 altogether. Grab yourself a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which ASUS makes plenty of high-end GP102-based GPUs. For UltraWide monitor owners, the 3440x1440 native resolution is absolutely fine with the custom RX Vega 64, thanks to the improved triple-fan cooler. Vega 10 is fast enough to handle 3440x1440 at 100FPS, so if you've got the AMD-recommended Samsung CF791, the Quantum Dot 34-inch 3440x1440 @ 100Hz FreeSync panel, you want the ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64.

 

If you were on the fence about buying the Radeon RX Vega 64 reference, stop whatever you're doing and cancel it. If you want to stay on Team Red, and didn't need the brute performance of the GTX 1080 Ti, then ASUS have you covered with the ROG Strix RX Vega 64.
