AMD RX Vega 56 is the little brother to the AMD Vega 64 and while the GPU does not feature full Vega 10 and is a cut down version of the Vega 64 GPU it is still a great contender for the GTX 1070. Here we have some AMD RX Vega 56 benchmarks that reveal the performance that the AMD RX Vega 56 will manage to deliver.
An important thing to note here is that the AMD RX Vega 56 is supposed to have a base clock of 1156 MHz and should boost to 1471 MHz. But in these benchmarks, the GPUs are clocked at 1538 MHz and 1590 MHz. It is possible that the GPUs have been overclocked and if that is indeed the case then you can see the performance that you can get.
Remember that the AMD RX Vega 56 is supposed to be competing with the GTX 1070 and while there is a lot of uncertainty about the pricing of the GPU this should be able to take on the Nvidia GPU. You can check out the benchmarks below:
First of all, we have Fire Strike and you can see that the AMD RX Vega 56 manages to score 16471 and 15816. The 1070, on the other hand, is able to get more than 20000 in this test. Moving on to Fire Strike Extreme we see that the GPU scores 8718 and 8397. The 1070 manages to score 9642. So Nvidia has the lead here again.
Moving on the Fire Strike Ultra the AMD Vega GPU managed to score 4796 and 4702 points. The Nvidia GTX 1070 managed to score 4768 in the same test. Mixed result here.
These are great in theory but we also need to see the in-game performance before we can reach a verdict.
Moving on to Time Spy, the Vega GPU managed to score 6510 and 6405. The GTX 1070 managed to score 4768, this is the only case where the AMD Vega GPU comes on top but keep in mind that it is most likely overclocked.
Let us know what you think about these AMD RX Vega 56 benchmarks and whether or not you are interested in buying one of these GPUs.
