Things are not looking good for AMD’s upcoming RX Vega graphics card as leaked 3DMark results have hit the web. These results show a apparent HBM2-based Radeon RX Vega graphics card barely beating out NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 in the Time Spy benchmark.
The leaked results were performed on a system with a RX Vega graphics card and AMD’s own Ryzen 7 1800X processor. This configuration had an overall score of 5950. If we look at results from around the web on average the GTX 1070 scores around 5700, the GTX 1080 scores 6700, and the GTX 1080 Ti scores 8300.
These results are not all that promising, considering AMD had said that Vega performance was on par with the GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN Xp. It is expected that AMD does have multiple Vega cards in the pipeline, so this version of the card could be set to be the GTX 1070 competitor? I guess time will only tell if that is the case.
The upcoming Radeon RX Vega appears to have its GPU clocked at 1 GHz base and 1.2 boost. It will 8 GB of HBM2 memory and a TDP of 225W. We will keep you updated on Vega as we know more.
