PowerColor RX VEGA 56 8GB NANO Edition Review
Published: 20th June 2018 | Source: PowerColor | Price: |
Today's review is a bit of a rarity around these parts, it's a RX Vega based GPU.
It can't have escaped your attention that there are very few RX Vega models on the market as the mining community snaps them up so quickly that there is almost no reason to advertise them or send them into review websites.
It was therefore with a reasonable amount of surprise that we saw PowerColor had produced a Nano model of the super-popular Vega 56 graphics card as we couldn't wait to see what it has to offer. Normally when we're reviewing PowerColor models that utilise an AMD GPU we're look at their Devil series. Can the more standard Nano still produce the goods?
The specifications for the PowerColor RX Vega 56 Nano are identical to the reference AMD Vega 56, with the GPU clocked to 1156 MHz and boosting up to 1471 MHz. As we'll see later on we can do better than that, but certainly if you are the type of person who just wants Vega's for mining it's good to know the PowerColor has the basics covered.
