The AMD RX Vega 56 was recently revealed and although it does not feature full Vega 10 like the AMD RX Vega 64, that does not mean that this is a slow GPU. Here we have some leaked AMD RX Vega 56 benchmarks that reveal that the graphics card is faster than the Nvidia GTX 1070 in modern AAA titles.
The AMD RX Vega 56 is a cut down version of the AMD RX Vega 64. The GPU has 56 next-generation compute units instead of 64. The GPU features 3,548 Stream processors, 192 TMUs, 64 ROPs, 8 GB of HBM2 memory and memory bandwidth of 410 GB/s. You can click here to learn more about AMD RX Vega 64.
You can get one of these GPUs for $399, or $499 in a bundle with 2 games that depend on your region. The AMD RX Vega 56 has been tested using the Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.2GHz, 16 GB of DDR4-3000 MHz RAM and Windows 10. All the games were running at 1440p resolution.
The games tested were Battlefield 1, Civilization 6, DOOM, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Even though Doom is a title that runs better on AMD GPUs it is impressive to see that the AMD RX Vega 56 beats the GTX 1070 in all four titles by a significant margin keeping in mind it is not full Vega 10.
Battlefield 1 ran at 95.4 FPS at Ultra settings as compared to the GTX 1070 that managed 72.2 FPS. Here the AMD Vega GPU was 32% better than the GTX 1070. Coming to Civilization 6, the AMD GPU managed 85.1 FPS at Ultra setting and the 1070 ran the game at 72.2 FPS.
Moving on to Doom, the AMD Vega GPU ran the game at 101.2 FPS at ultra settings while the GTX 1070 ran the game at 84.6 FPS. Here the Vega GPU has a 20% lead as compared to Nvidia. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare ran at 99.9 FPS at the high preset as compared to 92.1 on the 1070.
These leaked AMD RX Vega 56 benchmarks reveal that the RX Vega GPU is better in performance as compared to the GTX 1070.
