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]

The new AMD R9 390 is the direct successor to the R9 290. Both cards share the same GPU but the R9 390 is factory overclocked. The R9 390 has a 5% higher stock GPU clock, and a substantial stock memory clock increase of 20%. Additionally the R9 390 sports a minimum of 8GB of VRAM versus 4GB on the R9 290. At the current price levels of $329, the R9 390 can't compete given that R9 290s can be had for around $260. The increased VRAM will rarely help even at ultra high resolutions and in any case, most 4K gamers are likely to seek more GPU power than the R9 390 has to offer. We have seen several samples of the R9 390 and they scored an effective speed of 88.5% which, as expected, matches the speeds seen on overclocked R9 290s. On the face of it purchasing an R9 290 at a discount and then manually overclocking will result in the same performance as an R9 390 but with a saving of around $70. [Jun '15 GPUPro]
