Source has released a comprehensive compilation with a wealth of information showing the ultimate performance of AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 from AMD in the well-known 3DMark test.
The numbers are quite clear but we will comment the results so that you have a clearer vision. In 3DMark Fire Strike Performance the Radeon RX Vega 64 at stock frequencies (1,630 MHz) slightly outperforms a very high- revving GTX 1080 (1,924 MHz).
In 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, the peaks of frequency to 1,750 MHz allow the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 to be placed a considerable distance of that GTX 1080 to 1,924 MHz and at the same time reduces distances with the GTX 1080 IT of NVIDIA.
With 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra we have the same results as in the previous case, the AMD option surpasses without problems to the GTX 1080 and is much closer to the GTX 1080 TI. This is very important as it confirms that the higher the graphic workload, the lower the difference between the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 and the NVIDIA range.
Finally in 3DMark Time Spy the Radeon RX Vega 64 is slightly below the GTX 1080.
It will be necessary to see to what point it is possible to overclock the new top of AMD range and especially how it scales the performance of the card with each additional MHz, since this could reduce the distances with the GTX 1080 IT of NVIDIA, that at the moment remains the most potent option for the general consumer market.
It should be remembered however that the AMD Radeon Vega RX 64 should have an approximate price of 700 dollars, a figure that would place it almost in the same price range as the GTX 1080 and slightly behind the average 845 dollars Costs the GTX 1080 IT.
