RX Vega 56 with i7-7700K 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at High Quality

It is clear that the RX Vega 56 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. It is worth noting that the RX Vega 56 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX Vega 56 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 .

The RX Vega 64 might be the high-end flagship of the latest GCN 5.0 set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most mid-range PC gamers. On the other hand, the RX Vega 56 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 399. AMD ’s xx56 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 5.0 graphics card inside the RX Vega 56, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Final Fantasy XV, Just Cause 4 at 63 fps to 76 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 71 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play GreedFall, F1 2019, Forza Horizon 4, Far Cry New Dawn, Resident Evil 2 at 65 fps to 80 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 73 fps.

Rx580 or vega 56 or gtx 1070I will buy a new gaming pc in march with a ryzen 7 2700, but i dont know which graphics card should i buy. In my country i can get the rx 580 around 120k ft, the vega 56 around 185k ft, and a gtx 1070 about 150-160k ft. Which should I buy? I already have my monitor, it supports freesync. (75hz, 1080x2560 resolution)

If you want to use freesync you would have to go for either of the amd cards. you could get a vega 56 but its a pricey and can draw quite a lot of power than a 1070, which give almost similar performance which run much cooler with a third party cooler. So you would be good with the gtx 1070 and save some bucks for some of performance and there are cases where the gtx 1070 outperforms the vega 56,and you could overclock it to get vega like performance but or if that isn't the case you don't mind the extra power draw and heat, and want to make use of the free sync you can surely go for the vega 56. The rx 580 doesn't come anywhere these two so it is out if the question.Check this link out for comparison of two cards at stock and overclocked- http://blog.logicalincrements.com/2017/08/rx-vega-56-vs-gtx-1070-gtx-1080/

Should I buy the RX Vega 56 over the GTX 1070?I'll be building a new rig in a few weeks. For a few days, I've been having trouble deciding on which graphics card I want to get. For a while, I was decided that I'd go with the 1070, but then I realized that Vega 56 performs just as well or better while offering Freesync, which my monitor does offer. For some reason, I still can't decide whether or not I should go for the Vega 56. Should I?

On much smaller case blower type cooler is better due to heat being dump outside the case directly. But on much bigger case "open air" cooler usually end up being better. Also noise. Those blower type cooler can be very loud when the fan speed start ramping up.
