It has just been confirmed that AMD Vega will be coming out this quarter. This new information has been revealed by the company’s official Facebook page. Now we are getting more insights regarding AMD Vega performance compared to Nvidia’s high-end GPUs. It seems that AMD Vega will be very competitive and that is a good thing.
During an AMA session AMD’s Desktop CPU marketing manager, Don Woligroski talked about AMD Vega performance and how well it competes to the high-end GPUs from Nvidia. He replied by saying that AMD Vega performance looks good compared to the GTX 1080, 1080 Ti and Titan Xp.
We should be able to learn more about the performance of the upcoming AMD Vega GPUs when they come out later this quarter. From what we have seen so far the upcoming architecture seems to have a lot of potential and could put AMD back on the map when it comes to high-end GPUs.
The last time we saw a high-end GPU from AMD, it was the Radeon R9 Fury X and that was two years ago. People have been waiting ever since for AMD to introduce a new high-end GPU in the market and it is finally coming out. The following is what Don Woligroski had to say in response to a question posed to him:
FreeSync is cheaper because it’s an open standard. In many cases, a panel manufacturer can make a FreeSync panel by changing their monitor’s firmware and having it meet the spec. For G-Sync, Nvidia charges a licensing fee. Because of this differentiation alone, I think the inevitable future is FreeSync. Vega performance compared to the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti and the Titan Xp looks really nice.
There you have it folks, AMD Vega performance is comparable to the high-end Nvidia GPUs and we are waiting to see how powerful the GPUs are. This should give you a good idea of what you can expect from the upcoming line of AMD Vega GPUs.
Let us know what you think about AMD Vega and whether or not you would buy a Vega GPU when they come out later this quarter.
