Average Bench: 84.7% (30th of 621)

Based on 31,704 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]

Goes head to head with GTX1080 and RTX2060. Slightly surpasses them if undervolted and overclcoked. Almost forgot it costs at least 100€ less. Love it!

So much potential with a 64 BIOS


Excellent

22 months ago.

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.


Good

Great card for the price. Got it open box at micro Center for 330. Preforms well, I haven't flashed the 64 BIOS or undervolted it yet but I likely will in the future. This wasn't the game changer that many wanted it to be though.


Excellent

Love this card, I have the Strix version and its rock solid at 1100mv 1652mhz with memory at 920mhz. My benchmarks place it right next to a 3rd party GTX1080. I upgraded from 2 RX580s in Crossfire.

Newegg's stuff should be on here, cause the $270 ASRock Vega 56 is amazing for the price.

Best bang-for-your-buck GPU at the time of writing (August, 2019). The RX 5700 and 5700 XT cards are good options as well, but the Vega 56 outdoes them in value-ratio by a bit, and it's good enough for my purposes. To compare those two more directly, the 5700 XT is 34% faster for 60% higher ($250- $400) cost: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-RX-Vega-56-vs-AMD-RX-5700-XT/3938vs4045 Nvidia has some good offering in the 2070 Super and such, but I prefer AMD because they work with all FreeSync monitors, which are substantially cheaper than the Nvidia GSync compatible ones. (Yes, I know Nvidia GPUs support a handful of FreeSync monitors now, but that list so far only includes some of the overpriced/fancier monitor models.)
