ASUS ROG Strix RX Vega 64 OC Edition 8GB Video Card Tests @ Madshrimps

Published: | Posted By:

Now here is something you don't see very often, a video card review.  It would seem that with the global demand skyrocketing there is little need for doing video card reviews.  In fact most will tell you that sales come first and if we cannot keep up with supply there is little need to allocate anything for marketing.

RX Vega 64 is able to offer near GTX 1080 performance in most DirectX 11 titles, but performs exceptionally in newer, DirectX 12 games where it is able to exceed the performance levels of the Nvidia card. The Strix version coming from ASUS does feature a factory overclock, but the speed it will actually run at really depends on multiple factors such as power limits (for the GPU, HBM2 memory) but also temperature. When trying to overclock the card, we could not increase the clock much further, which is telling us that the Strix is pretty much running already at max capacity.

I like RX Vega, it was a good chip and while I can say that AMD didn't see fitting to send me a card on launch day it didn't really matter because by the time you could find a card, they were gone. 

Its almost like they never existed.
