Based on 1,569 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]

+ GTX 1080/Vega 64 performance in games, TITAN Xp perf. in GPGPU, can reach Quadro P5000's perf. in CAD/DCC apps. + 16 GB dedicated VRAM (33% more than on a TITAN Xp, not to mention HBCC, but you need enough system RAM to benefit from that, at least 32 GB). + Stable drivers. +/- Acceptable noise levels. With factory settings and no OC, the Air-Cooled Vega FE it's not even louder than a reference GTX 1080. - High power consumption and temperatures under load.

Targeted toward prosumers, this GPU has 16GB of HBM2 VRAM which is enough to handle heavyweight rendering which requires more than even 11GB of VRAM which is found on flagship Nvidia cards currently. This GPU performs similarly as Vega 64 yet priced double of the Vega 64 price which makes this GPU a poor choice for gamers.

Never really had a purpose. Never was a good value.

Better options than this. Also, still high power draw.


Terrible

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

How are you keeping it under 40c with +200% Power Limit? I am running super hot with 360mm rads at only +50% Power Limit.
