AMD Radeon RX Vega is making its way to the market in a couple of months. In the latest performance test, which recently leaks out, appears to have suggested that the prototype graphic processing unit made a good impression in 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark. How does the said GPU card perform in the test with other graphic cards?

Advanced Micro Devices or AMD is a multinational semiconductor company that designs and develops computer processors and other related consumer products such as graphic processing unit (GPU) for end users and business markets. And now, the company is ready to launch its newest GPU product line, the AMD Radeon RX Vega.

AMD Radeon RX Vega is one of most anticipated graphic processing unit (GPU) that making a big buzz in the electronic industry today. The said GPU card allegedly will match up with Nvidia's own GPU product line such as the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti. And now, the RX Vega reportedly had undergone testing before its awaited release.

According to Hot Hardware, a device ID listed as 687F:C1 appears to be pointing to as AMD Radeon RX Vega is making a good run in in Futuremark's 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark test. The GPU card features an 8GB HBM2 second generation memory running at 700MHz with a 1.2GHz core clock. The prototype card performs over 60 frames per second in its initial demo and hitting a maximum 70fps at times.

AMD Radeon RX Vega use an Asus Prime X370-Pro motherboard and a Ryzen 7 1800X processor during the demo test. Results show that it had a Fire Strike score of 14,412 and a graphic score of 17,801 points, which is approximately in line with Nvidia's GeForce Titan X and at least as good as the GeForce GTX 1070. But latest news is saying that the said GPU will have a limited stock once it will be launch in the market.

According to TweakTown, AMD Radeon RX Vega reportedly will have less than 16,000 cards available for the first few months of its launch. Sources are saying that is due to the limited supply of the HBM2, presumably the second generation high bandwidth memory, the GPU card is using.

The HBM2 memory also carries an expensive cost that makes its production slowing down. Though AMD Radeon RX Vega appears to have a good performance graphic, Nvidia's own GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are still the best in the market today. Rumors are spreading that RX Vega will be available by end of May or early June, just around the Computex computer expo.
