Based on 295 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 6863 Model: Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPU is AMD's first graphics card with the new Vega architecture which features next-generation compute units (nCUs). AMD have designed Vega to handle the increasing data and computational demands from game creation to rendering simulations to video processing to AI. The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition comes with 64 nCUs yielding 4096 stream processors with which it can process up to 13.1 TFLOPS. Also, it has a high-bandwidth cache controller and 16GB of ultra fast HBM2 RAM and supports an 8K display. This first Vega GPU is aimed at professional workstation users and although it is not a gaming card, its game performance benchmarks are underwhelming albeit good. It broadly matches the performance of NVIDIA's now year old GTX 1080, but at nearly twice the price ($550 for the 1080 versus a list price of $1000 for the air-cooled Vega Frontier Edition). There is also a water-cooled edition of the Vega Frontier which commands an additional $500 premium on the list price. There will be gaming variants of Vega based cards available shortly and, depending on their entry price, these may prove to be more interesting to the consumer/gamer market. [Jul '17 GPUPro]


Outstanding average bench

The AMD Vega Frontier Edition averaged 14.3% higher than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This is an excellent result which ranks the AMD Vega Frontier Edition near the top of the comparison list.


Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 337fps
Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 297fps

Poor consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD Vega Frontier Edition is 63.1%. This is a particularly wide range which indicates that the AMD Vega Frontier Edition performs inconsistently under varying real world conditions.

Overpriced with bad energy efficiency and the worst cooling system in the world. Its as loud as a hair dryer under load.

I have a Co-worker, and he has told me many times that it can not out due a 1080, due to the cards tremendous heat dissipation issue and power requirements. I have played on his PC and while during normal game-play I noticed the card running to 100% causing stutters and many other problems that I'm not very fond of, and that even a 1070 or Ti can overcome. That also being my first time using a AMD CPU (Ryzen 2600) and GPU for that day being.
