The upcoming SIGGRAPH event by AMD is all set to take place on 30th of July this year and according to some latest reports, at least 3 SKUs are being anticipated by the fans to be presented in the ceremony. The most recent and encouraging news for the AMD fans is that the AMD’s RX Vega GPU benchmarked and pitted against Nvidia’s high-end Pascal lineup has clearly beaten the GTX 1080. However, the Ti version of the Nvidia’s flagship is still ahead of the RX Vega.

The popular benchmark website, 3DMark shows that a graphics card with the device ID ‘687F: C1’, has topped the race. This device id clearly shows that it is one of the upcoming RX Vega GPUs. Furthermore, the details of this device include:

  • A 1630MHz core clock speed
  • Memory clock speed of 1890MHz on the HBM2
  • Overall, 31,874 points which show that it is almost 15% faster than a GTX 1080

The Benchmark May Be Even Better

Having an eye on the previous track record of the graphics card, the benchmark can even go further ahead. Earlier, it was ranked at the place of GTX 1070 in performance and now the improvement shows that AMD has worked quite hard to roll out a tweaked version. So if we wait a while and give some more time to it, an even better benchmark result may also be waiting for us.
