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]

The RX 470 is the second Polaris based 14 nm graphics card released by AMD this year. The 470 follows hot on the heels of the hugely successful (though still mostly unavailable) RX 480. Based on specs the RX 470 has approximately 10% less processing horsepower than the RX 480. Looking at provisional average benchmarks (we only three samples of the RX 470 at this time) of the RX 480 and RX 470 shows that the performance gap is just a few percent. This performance gap will likely widen as we get a more representative number of samples of the RX 470 but the fact that custom design 470s are already available will likely keep the gap between the 480 less than 10%, at least until custom 480s make it to market. The list prices of both the 4GB RX 480 and RX 470 cards are within 20 USD of each other so AMD have basically re-released the 480 at a slightly reduced price with slightly reduced specs, strange but true! [Aug '16 GPUPro]
