Our Verdict: At 1440p, GTX TITAN BLACK can hit 50-60 frames per second on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Whereas RX Vega 56 can hit 50-60 frames per second at maximum settings. The RX Vega 56 is faster by 40% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from GTX TITAN BLACK to RX Vega 56 is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is much better for RX Vega 56 .
