Radeon RX Vega 56 Benchmark Reveals It Is On Par With The Nvidia GTX 1070
The Radeon RX Vega 56 is the little brother of the Radeon RX Vega 64 and although it does not feature full Vega 10 and is a cut down version of the Vega 64, it is still a great contender to take on the Nvidia GTX 1070. We have seen leaks in the past that show that the Vega 56 is on par with the 1070 and here we have another Radeon RX Vega 56 benchmark.
While the exact numbers of the Radeon RX Vega 56 benchmark have been blurred out, most probably due to the embargo, we should be getting the official numbers soon considering that the embargo will be lifted today.
The bars on the Radeon RX Vega 56 benchmark show that it is on par with the GTX 1070 if not better and while the pricing of the AMD Vega GPUs is still not clear, word has it that that the retail price will be higher than the MSRP. You can check out the benchmark below:
There was a rumor that the Vega GPUs will have a mining performance of 100 MH/s but now it has been made clear that it is not the case and those were just rumors. You can click here for more information regarding the mining performance of the AMD Vega GPUs.
The AMD Vega 64 has power consumption issues even though it is not too far off from the performance of the GTX 1080. Seeing how both the Vega 64 and 56 are based on the same architecture, it is highly likely that the Vega 56 will also have this issue.
