Vega seems perfectly capable of being a lot more efficient than it is in most reviews. My 56 outperforms this 64 whilst running with 1075mV instead of 1200mV and still managing to push between 1640 and 1680MHz.

Ironically, running it balls to the wall not caring about power consumption, I can only get it up to around 1710MHz, but I probably need more than +50% power target.

Im tempted to think a polaris card with 64 CUs would have been better than V64, if not it would have atleast been a bit more efficient/less ridiculous.
It's a custom chip. They could have done 64 CUs. It's not the same as Polaris but bigger.

I've always been a fan of the Red Devil cards. Looks like this one is pretty solid as well other than the power draw which is AMD's fault, not Power Color's. Generally I could live with a high power draw but man, 619 watts is a whopping amount! I thought my 290x was a monster pulling 400 watts from the wall. 619 would be a little hard to live with.

I have had a power color in the past. Not to fussed to be honest. Not a very reliable brand.
Did the job for my for cheapest in the past (had a HD 4650). but I wouldn't got back to them again.
If your looking for a cheap brand go for it. Never know, they might have become more reliable over the years

I just got one of these for a really good price, so I'm going around reading the reviews on it.

It is a fine looking GPU and I think that it will be a decent gamer too.
I do have an all-red LED PC that it will look good in.
