The Radeon RX Vega 64 is AMD’s latest Radeon flagship graphics card. It is the first Vega based gaming GPU and follows on from the recent launch of the Vega Frontier Edition. The Vega architecture is built on 14 nm silicon and contains next-generation compute units (nCUs) that have been engineered to be more efficient and powerful than ever before, enabling gamers to achieve higher frame rates at 4K. Each NCU houses 64 steam processors, of which the Vega 64 has 4096 (compared to 3584 in the Vega 56) which can process up to 13.7 TFLOPS (0.6 TFLOPS more than the Frontier Edition) in the liquid cooled version of the GPU. The new architecture also employs 8GB of second generation high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) which is able cope with more data, more quickly than previously. AMD describe this as the most significant leap in their GPU architecture for the last five years. Our graphics benchmarks place the performance of the Vega 64 amongst the best. Its effective speed is very close to that of the twice as expensive Frontier Edition (a workstation GPU with a gaming mode) and just behind NVIDIA’s similarly priced, but now 1 year old GTX 1080. Despite the hopes of AMD enthusiasts, the great performance from the Vega 64 has not been able to exceed the even greater performance from NVIDIA’s GTX 1080 Ti, released earlier this year. The 33% faster 1080 Ti offers better value for money than an RX 64 would even if it were available at its list price of $599. The best prices for RX 64's today are closer to $750 making the RX 64 somewhat redundant until prices drop down to the low $500 mark. [Sep '17 GPUPro]

Spanked the 1080 so hard nvidia had to make a separate ray tracing processor in their 2080 to even get close to vega ray tracing.

Love this card. outperforms the 1080s i've compared it too and only paid what a 1070 costs brand new.

Comment 

vs. 1080: Worse performance, FAR higher power consumption, FAR higher thermal output, more expensive - literally no upside unless you have spent alot on a top-notch freesync monitor and can get the 64 at the same price as a 1080.—Oct '17

If you're going to buy a Vega 64, do yourself a favor and buy a Sapphire Nitro+, PowerColor Red Devil, or Asus ROG Strix. As far as I can tell, those are just about the only three cards worth buying if you want some of the best performance Vega 64 has to offer. I have the Sapphire Nitro+ card and I would argue that it's the best Vega 64 on the market. I've run countless benchmarks with mine (not just here on UserBenchmark) and the results are almost consistently ahead of the GTX 1080/RTX 2070/Vega 64 Liquid pack and often approach the performance of the GTX 1080 Ti/RTX 2080/Radeon VII. If you buy a reference (blower style) card, you're probably not going to see results like those I mentioned above. At least, not without maxing the fan speed (creating a lot of noise) or installing a custom cooler or watercooling solution. The same can be said of most any reference card, whether AMD or Nvidia. At the prices these have been selling for recently (sub-$400 or even the $420 Sapphire Nitro+), they still offer great cost-to-performance, even when compared to Nvidia's recent competitive GPUs. It just depends what you're looking for, what you need, or who you pledge allegiance to (and there are a lot of you that only see green because the propaganda-filled marketing machine is unstoppable).

Overpriced, cost as much as a 1080Ti ($699), uses too much power and poor performance for the money. Poor Vega.

I was lucky to have bought it at 570€. I bought it because I hate nvidia's gimping (gameworks) and the extremely slow OpenCL performances on macOS (I sometimes use it on an Hackintosh). Best card I've ever tried! I use it in 1080p or 1400p virtual, and every game can be played at 60fps without any problem. At those resolutions it uses about 150-180W, and I'm happy with that.

Got it for 400 dollars and have been able to Undervolt and Overclock for a significant performance boost over stock. Love this card and I believe it is a great alternative for a 1080 and 2070 if you can find it for the right price.
