Alleged AMD RX Vega 3DMARK 11 benchmark scores have appeared online

Alleged AMD RX Vega benchmarks have surfaced online

How much performance does Vega offer?  

 
Several benchmark scores of what is thought to be AMD's upcoming RX Vega GPU have appeared online, with the GPU being listed with a clock speed of 1630MHz, which is thought to be the GPU's boost clock speed. 
 
These scores show GPU performance that is considerably higher than early RX Vega benchmarks, thanks to higher clocks on both the HBM2 memory used and increases in core clock speeds. This GPU has 8GB of HBM2 memory that is clocked at 945MHz. 
 
The early 3DMARK 11 benchmark results have been tabled below by Videocardz, this Vega based GPU (687F:C1) comes with benchmark results that offer similar performance to factory overclocked GTX 1080 models, which suggests that the RX Vega will surpass Nvidia's GTX 1080 reference design.

At this time it is unknown whether or not these results are using AMD's newest RX Vega gaming drivers, or if they are running at the same clock speeds as AMD's final/retail RX Vega GPUs, though at least the results are a little more positive than what has already been seen with the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. 

One thing that must also be remembered is that this is using a DirectX 11 benchmarking tool and that this result will not be representative of all gaming loads, especially when using modern APIs like DirectX 12 and Vulkan.

First and foremost, AMD always do quite well in 3DMark. So yeah, let's get that out of the way. Vega did very well in 3DMark.. Also 1630 clock. That must be under water, or an AIO, because there is no way unless you live in the North Pole that you will get those clocks on air.

Still though, if there is a way for it to clock that high (3rd party cooler or what not) then it may just close in on the 1080 which is pretty cool.

Hmm just thought about it. If AMD are advertising the FE at 1600mhz and this is supposedly running at 1630 then that could be the brick wall. My Fury X will only do about 30mhz before it bombs in games. Does 105 for benching though.Quote

The performance of these new Vega cards is irrelevant, we all know they're going to be at 1070/1080 level.

All that matters is the price, if AMD can offer that kind of performance for $50 & $100 respectively, cheaper than Nvidia, then they'll gain market share.

..If they can't, it doesn't matter, Vega will have no impact whatsoever.

Of course right now we have all these scum bag, parasite miners distorting the market so it may not matter what price AMD want these cards to go for..Quote

If its a BIT better than a 1080 then its all about price!Quote

The good thing about mining is that when it crashes so do GPU prices. Right now I am happy for AMD to make a little extra money tbh. There's always the second hand market (between friends on forums, not money grabbing chancers) so I will always be able to keep my rigs running.Quote

Who's buying 1080's these days though? The market for 1070's is great, everyone who pay for higher kit goes for the 1080ti - the 1080 is pointless surely - so the Vega being at 1070 levels is great but why bother hitting the 1080 level unless you're a LOT cheaper?Quote
