Leaked benchmarks list the RX Vega 56 as a GTX 1070 killer

Is Vega more competitive than some first thought?



Read more on AMD's RX Vega 56's leaked benchmark data.

Well let's be honest they've had plenty of time to prepare. I hope those figures are correct, because they look decent.

I hope this is true. I'm planning on getting the RX Vega​⁵⁶ anyway but this would be some nice icing on the cake when I was expecting at or just below GTX 1070 performance.

Just remember that Infinite Warfare likes AMD GPUs. Since then Nvidia has updated their drivers and game updates may have changed things, but this is what the situation was at launch.

maybe the 56/64 is the equivalent 290 vs 290x all over again.

Only unlike the 290 and 290x the prices are dangerously close to Nvidia's.

That's before launch. Just watch what Nvidia do post launch.

Are you expecting Nvidia to lower the price on 1070s? That would be nice.

Yes. Definitely. They have been charging full whack for going on a year? now. They are small dies, cheap AF to make, so they can easily drop the prices. You may find the cheapest cards won't come with the Founders cooler, because it isn't cheap to make (see also - the plastic tat AMD call a cooler on their Vega high end cards) but that shouldn't matter too much.

The 1080 has already dropped to £450. The big Vega is set to cost £500+

FWIW, I've been seeing some decent price drops here in Canuckistan. Not sure if they're just sales, but I saw some 1070s on sale for over $100CDN off, 1080TI's for less than $900CDN, etc.
