AMD RX Vega is one of the most anticipated GPU reportedly set to be released in two months. Its much-awaited collision with Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti will now happen and tech experts are already excited to know the result. Who will lead between this two top-tier GPU for this year?
For the past months, AMD RX Vega has been the subject of numerous rumors in the news. Many say that the Sunnyvale-based company has produced one of their best graphic processing units for a long while. Some believed that since the release of Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, no other GPUs in the market have matched its capabilities.
Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti has proven the quality of its graphic when it was released last March. Compared to other GPUs like the Titan X and other GTX 10-series, the 1080 Ti is way above them in terms of graphical aptitude that supports 4K PC gaming. And now, the arrival of AMD RX Vega allegedly will challenge Nvidia's best product so far.
According to PC Authority, AMD RX Vega aims to somehow match up with Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti capability. One of AMD's managers stated that the RX Vega is well more enough to contest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the Titan Xp performance wise. However, the official hasn't released any stats comparing the said GPUs.
AMD RX Vega promised to bring the Radeon graphics cards back and give AMD the genuine 4K gaming. One AMD official also announced that the Vega is the biggest improvement on their graphic IP in the past five years. The RX Vega might probably have an RX-500 version coming later just like the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti followed the Titan X.
However, TweakTown reported that leak results about the AMD RX Vega performance test reveal it barely beats the GTX 1070 GPU, the lower version of Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti. The alleged outcome is based on the HBM2-based graphic test conducted in 3DMark TimeSpy.
AMD RX Vega powered by a Ryzen 7 1800X processor gathered a system scoring of 5950 as against the 5703 of the GTX 1070 as per the leaked results. Meanwhile, GTX 1080 was able to put a score of 6709 whereas Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti is way ahead with 8312. Based on the leaked result, it seems that the RX Vega will have to catch up big time with the GTX 1080 Ti.
