AMD Radeon Vega 64 has been proving itself as a match winner as more and more competitors continue to fall short of performance when compared to it. Even AMD’s own R9 Fury X enthusiast graphics card has been completely wiped away by it in terms of performance. The card came out after a considerable time delay after R9 Fury X’s release but it was worth the wait. Moreover, the graphics card is designed specifically to target the high-end cards and not the mid-range GPUs.
Best Find for Gamers
With high-refresh rates at 1080P and 1440P, the Vega 64 is the best find for gamers who want to make full use of the compatible FreeSync monitors. Obviously, the card is not capable of performing as good as Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti or Titan Xp in AAA games as described in plenty of our previous articles.
