In regards to Vega, apparently it performs far better than Nvidia. A 64 is far ahead if the 1080 and the 56 is slightly above it. At least according to a different review.

It is good to see though that this is not another crappy black boxed Nvidia TWIMTBP title. Having agnostic results and being GPU limited is how it should be.
Nice review and thanks for taking the time. Since the DRM slowed you down a bit.

Where do you see that? I only saw Vega win in Forza which makes sense since Microsoft had that game optimized for AMD specific hardware (Thanks Xbox).

Not sure if that one game equates to GPU competition or the VEGA performing "FAR BETTER THAN NVIDIA".

Joker on YouTube saw his Vega 56 come within scratching distance of a 1080. DudeRandom84 on youTube also shows Vega 64 beating the 1080. Not by a huge amount, and Vega 56 is still behind the 1080, but Vega seemingly likes Shadow of War.

You should do some research and read into how you receive posts, because no where did I say Vega is better than Nvidia because of one game.

Oh, no you said "Far Better Than Nvidia". And that's the part I challenged. I have yet to see once where VEGA is "far better" than nvidia with the exception of like one game.

More will come out, but the amount of games that literally go out of their way to optimize for AMD vs games in general vs studios that go out of their way to optimize for Nvidia... you'll see AMD is not "far better" than nvidia.

Once again, Far Better than nvidia being your words. But you're right, I need to do my research *sip tea*

Getting a little childish now, NBD said Vega performed better than a 1080 not just in Forza 7 but also in SoW, And it does, That's literally it, Leave it at that and move on.
