Average Bench: 114% (8th of 548)

Based on 43 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]

Too hot, too expensive. It should be as powerful as GTX 1080, but despite the price, in games it is considerably slower, but in mining and computing it is not any better.

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