AMD Radeon RX Vega vs NVIDIA Titan X vs GeForce GTX 1080 Ti: Battle of Best GPUs in 2017

Apr 24, 2017 04:39 AM EDT


NVIDIA recently launched its high-end GPU, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, and on the other side its main rival AMD is also expected to respond very soon with the upcoming next-generation GPU, the Radeon RX Vega. With the rumored specs and features about AMD Vega, it is often compared to NVIDIA's product such as the NVIDIA Titan X, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Just like the Titan X, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is using the GP102 core architecture, with up to 3,584 CUDA cores. It comes with 11 GB of GDDR5X VRAM. The graphics card has a boost clock of 1.6 GHz and overclocks up to 2 GHz. GTX 1080 Ti also comes with an increased maximum power rating of 250 Watts, churning out 11.5 teraflops.

NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti has arrived packed with a lot of power. But then also several speculations claim that AMD's Radeon RX Vega will actually have a higher performance of as much as 20 to 45 percent when compared to NVIDIA's latest GPU.

According to Tweak Town, AMD will have three variants of its upcoming Radeon RX Vega: 4GB HBM2, 8GB HBM2, and 16GB of HBM2. However, AMD also promises that the Radeon RX Vega 4GB HBM2 variant can outperform 11GB GDDR5X. Although the image did not specify any graphics card, it is safe to suppose that it is referring to NVIDIA's recently released graphics card, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

AMD Radeon RX Vega is said to be powered by 2x the performance per clock and 4x the performance per watt when compared to its previous-gen GPU architecture. The AMD Radeon RX Vega can reach up to 16GB HBM2 running on a 2048-bit memory bus with 14nm LPP process at 1600MHz. However, these numbers are yet to be officially confirmed in addition to other specifications.

NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti provides better than TITAN X(P) performance for nearly half the cost ($699 vs. $1200). Now we have custom GTX 1080 Ti cards like MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G which is beating both the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, and TITAN X(P).

According to reports, AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU will be coming with 8 GB of HBM2 with a 2,048-bit memory configuration. This includes two HMB2 stacks possessing 4 GB each plus a 1,024-bit memory interface. The graphics card will reportedly also come with 4,096 stream processors, which is allegedly fast enough to beat the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
