New graphic cards in The Radeon RX series are aiming To beat Nvidia graphics in high end market. 2017 Has been the year of Radeon RX graphics from AMD and specially The Radeon Vega that is competing Nvidia in highest end of video graphic cards market in gaming and also in VR Gaming experience. AMD also released the AMD Ryzen Platform and Ryzen CPUs in 2017 and continuing to produce them in 2018 for the 2nd AMD Ryzen CPU generation with 12 nm. It can absolutely be stated that 2017 was the year for AMD to have the greatest come back to the market since 2007. And we can predict 2018 could be the year that AMD dominates video Gaming in CPU and Graphics cards. Intel and Nvidia are going to have one of their most challenging years in 2018 with new upcoming Ryzen 2nd generation and Vega Graphics in early 2018. The entry model is the Radeon RX Vega 56, with 56 compute units and will cost about $399. The Vega 56 is going to compete  with the Gforce 1070. The Vega 56 ofcourse wins as it’s cheaper and faster in most tests too. This is great news for AMD and anyone wishing to buy a  high-end graphics card. The next one is Radeon RX Vega 64, which will get about 64 units for an additional $100 on the cost. Not much out yet from the 3rd option though but as far as reported the $699 Vega 64 is Liquid Cooled and is only available with a Radeon Packs. The whole Vega series shipped on August 14th.  AMD released a benchmark from the vega series earlier when it was announced. AMD’s benchmarks indicate that the RX Vega 64 has a higher frame rate (53 frames per second versus 45 fps) than the GTX 1080’s and a ceiling that’s just 2 fps lower. AMD Originally revealed the lineup of new RX 500 graphics cards on April 2017.  Radeon RX 500-series is a perfect fit to the company’s new Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7 processors and soon the THREADRIPPER CPUs.  The Radeon RX 580 as the flagship of the RX 500 series has a 1,256MHz base and 1,340MHz boost clock so as you expect power consumption of about 150W to 185W. The Radeon RX 570 has a 1,168MHz base and 1,244MHz boost clock. Not huge but a mild. Yes, that’s a mild increase from the Radeon RX 470’s 1,206MHz maximum of course not the base line the base line has a bit of more increase.

AMD First announced Vega back at CES 2017 in January for the first time.

AMD said the GPUs would deliver “more than 200% of the throughput-per-clock over previous Radeon architectures” in processing.

Then AMD unveiled the Radeon RX Vega line of GPUs at the SIGGRAPH conference in 2017. The Vega family has three main Vega graphics cards, two of them launched Aug. 14 2017.

AMD Radeon RX Vega vs 1080 & 1080 TI benchmark

Here is a quick comparison between RX VEGA 64 VS  Nvidia Gforce 1080 TI, The two big flagships of AMD and Nvidia now in gaming :

First it does not look that its much of a competitior for 1080 TI. But Maybe the most important advantage the 1080 ti has over the Vega 64 is the huge effective memory, but in all other areas its very close. Amd is yet to be releasing the newer models of Vega and this is still not the end for AMD.

Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti vs AMD RX Vega 64
Userbenchmark Effective 3D Gaming GPU Speed: 156% vs 112%
Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti – 2nd / 544
AMD RX Vega 64 – 6th / 544

 

The RX Vega 64 may not get the Ti version of the 1080 Graphics from Nvidia but It absolutely is the main competitor for the original Gforce 1080 graphic card.

AMD Originally revealed the lineup of new RX 500 graphics cards on April 2017.  Radeon RX 500-series is a perfect fit to the company’s new Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7 processors and soon the THREADRIPPER CPUs.  The Radeon RX 580 as the flagship of the RX 500 series has a 1,256MHz base and 1,340MHz boost clock so as you expect power consumption of about 150W to 185W. The Radeon RX 570 has a 1,168MHz base and 1,244MHz boost clock. Not huge but a mild. Yes, that’s a mild increase from the Radeon RX 470’s 1,206MHz maximum of course not the base line the base line has a bit of more increase.
The Radeon RX 560 provides  1,175MHz/1,275MHz, respectively. In therm of the unit numbers the RX 460 only packed 14 compute units and the RX 560 rocks the full 16. All these mean that The new RX 500 option are bringing you much more performance than the lower entry level RX 400 series. But The 500 series continuation is depending on how AMD is going to release the new VEGA series. AMD may even plan to discontinue the RX 500 series and focus on the strong VEGA platform that is now competing in high end with graphic cards such as Nvidia 1080. Here The Radeon RX 500 Graphics brief specs:

The RX 400 series will offer >1.5 TFLOps performance and at least 100 GB/s of memory bandwidth as the base line of the whole series when first it was announced.  The Radeon RX 480 has been a very popular graphics card worldwide, similar to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 which maybe the most popular one in both mobile and desktop. However, the new Radeon RX 500-series are now released and It has got very hard to find a Radeon RX 400 and especially the RX 480 which is the flafship of the 400 series. The Radeon RX 500-series which we talked about earlier  is set to replace the older Polaris GPUs entirely, meaning the RX 400-series cards are to be near the end of their life.

Radeon RX 480

  • 36 compute units1
  • Up to 5.8 TFLOPS
  • 256 bit Memory Bandwidth
  • 8GB GDDR5

Radeon RX 470

  • 32 compute units1
  • Up to 4.9 TFLOPS
  • 256 bit Memory Bandwidth
  • 8GB GDDR5

Radeon RX 460

  • 14 compute units1
  • Up to 2.2 TFLOPS
  • 128 bit Memory Bandwidth
  • 4GB GDDR5
