AMD Radeon RX Vega Specs Confirmed Ahead Through 3DMark 11 Scores Ahead Of Siggraph Release

Jul 07, 2017 12:02 PM EDT

AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card has surfaced in a benchmark database for the first time, providing the first look at what can be expected from it in terms of gaming performance. The reference gaming Radeon RX Vega chip is codenamed '687F: C1' in 3DMark, providing some benchmark scores and what could well be the finalized specs.

AMD Radeon RX Vega features the same Vega 10 GPU as the Frontier Edition; however it is clocked at 1630MHz, 30MHz faster than the Frontier. This particular model comes with half the memory and packaged with 'just' 8GB HBM2which will be split into two 4GB stacks, as reported Game-Debate.

The finer points of the specs are still up in the air; however, it's looking possible that the AMD Radeon RX Vega will have enormously similar specs to the Radeon RX Vega Frontier Edition. Both the cards uses same Vega 10 GPU, so the Radeon RX Vega is expected to cap out at 4096 Stream Processors, 256 TMUs, 64 ROPs and 64 Compute Units.

The 3D Mark benchmark shows AMD Vega graphics architecture performing 15% quicker than a GTX 1080, but still well off the speed of a GTX 1080 Ti. The scores for the AMD Radeon RX Vega cropped up in the 3DMark database, pulling in a graphics score of 31,873 in 3DMark 11. This compares to 27,618 for the GeForce GTX 1080 and 23,608 for the GeForce GTX 1070, up till now it's still some way short of the 38,389 achieved by the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, according to PCGamesN.

AMD is working on optimizing its gaming Radeon RX Vega and gaming drivers ahead of the launch at SIGGRAPH event at the end of this month. It would be interesting to see how progress is going. More about the much awaited Vega variant card will be known at launch.
