AMD finally confirmed earlier this week that Radeon RX Vega graphics card will be launched at the SIGGRAPH 2017, which kicks off on the 30th of July. However, a fresh leak has shown AMD's RX Vega GPU benchmarked and pitted against Nvidia's high-end Pascal lineup.

AMD has been working on tweaking the final clocks of the upcoming Radeon RX Vega and its software team has been hard at work in tweaking the drivers for the launch at SIGGRAPH 2017. According to the latest details provided in the benchmark, the AMD Vega GPU works at 1630MHz while 8GB of HBM2 ended up clocked at 945MHz, which is significantly higher than earlier rumors.

Over on the 3DMark database, the latest benchmark entry was discovered under device ID '687F: C1', which is believed to be one of the upcoming RX Vega GPUs. This exacting model comes with a 1630MHz core clock with an 1890MHz clock speed on the HBM2. While running 3DMark 11, this particular AMD Radeon RX Vega version scored 31,874 points that is around 15 percent faster than a NVIDIA GTX 1080 but still some ways off the performance of a GTX 1080Ti, as reported by Kit Guru.

However, this is a big improvement over past benchmark leaks that pinned the AMD Radeon RX Vega closer to a GTX 1070 in performance. The extra tweaking over the last few months appears to have allowed AMD to press an important amount of extra performance out, according to Fudzilla.

That said, it should be noted that this is still an early benchmark, so it may not end up fully representing the final AMD Radeon RX Vega. This was also a synthetic benchmark, rather than a true in-game test. Still, with gaming RX Vega now so close to launching, the leaks should start to be more accurate.
