Average Bench: 107% (13th of 593)

Based on 1,532 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 687F 56 Models: Radeon RX Vega, Radeon(TM) RX Vega

The Radeon RX Vega 56 is the weakest member of AMD's Vega GPU family. The Vega architecture is built on 14 nm silicon and contains next-generation compute units (nCUs). Each NCU houses 64 steam processors, of which the Vega 56 has 3584 vs. 4096 in the Vega 64. The new architecture employs 8GB of second generation high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) which is able cope with more data, more quickly than previously. Although the Vega 56 has 12.5% less processing units, users have found that by flashing an RX 64 Bios into an RX 56 card allows a 10% increase in OC headroom which effectively brings a BIOS flashed RX 56 onto par with a stock RX 64 and just 12.5% slower than a fully overclocked RX 64. This would be great news if the RX 56 were available at its MSRP of $399 as it would then be both cheaper and faster than a GTX 1070, but current market prices for the RX Vega 56 are closer to $550. The GPU market is still unbalanced (AMD GPUs in particular) as a result of the ongoing Ethereum mining frenzy which has depleted global GPU inventory to the lowest levels in recent memory. [Oct '17 GPUPro]

Full disclosure, my Vega 64 is a Vega 56 running the Vega 64 BIOS. After flashing I feel as though I got a much better GPU than AMD intended. With the voltage bump on the HBM2 I can stay super stable at 1020mhz and with some substantial undervolting my Vega 56 performs above Vega 64 stock speeds and trades blows with the GTX 1080 in some games. The reference design is very robust overclocks nicely (albeit loudly). A desperately needed entry in AMDs line-up for those of us with Freesync monitors.
