Average Bench: 82.8% (53rd of 665)

Based on 78,528 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). In terms of compatibility all of the games we tested were fine apart from GTAV where enabling reflection MSAA resulted in very poor, almost matt, reflection fidelity (the same bug appeared on several Navi and Vega cards). 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. All of this OC headroom is great on paper but in the real world the reference Vega 56 is far too noisy. Hair dryer levels of noise at stock clocks are unacceptable for most users. Provided you are partially deaf or happy to use noise canceling headphones the Vega 56 “can” deliver levels of performance that approach an RTX 2060 but prices need to drop below $200 before the Vega 56 is competitive. [Nov '19 GPUPro]

running one monitor ill hop into a game and often as not ill play for a minute or 30 and the card will black screen on my ryzen rig and then i have to restart the entire pc to get it to work again so yeah mid game ill either get the black screen or the blue screen saying "thread stuck" maybe 50% of the time now when it actually works its not bad if it would actually work and this is on every game ive played from elder scrolls to wot its just ridiculous —Mar '21

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.

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

took a bit of tweaking and troubleshooting to get it to fully OC and undervolt but when you find your cards sweet spot this thing is a monster at 1440p gaming on ultra settings. stays cool and quiet with custom fan curves a good card for those who love tweaking every setting possible on a gpu not a good card for people who just want to plug and play.

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.

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.)
