Average Bench: 90.7% (27th of 625)

Based on 844 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]

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

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.


Poor

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


Terrible

2 years ago.

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


Excellent

Put a waterblock on it, load LC FE bios on it, and power play mod the power limit to 200% and you've got yourself a silent rocket with a ton of VRAM. FE becomes very stable and happy to OC if you keep it under 40c
