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

Conclusion. Radeon RX Vega 56 is a close derivative of Vega 64, so its behaviors largely carry over from AMD’s flagship. The company does cut this card’s board power rating by almost 30% ...
Years in development, the new Radeon RX Vega line is finally arriving - AMD's return to the higher-end of GPU performance after concentrating its efforts more on the mainstream and budget sectors ...
Similar to AMD's Radeon RX Vega 64, the Vega 56 offers two BIOSes with corresponding power profiles that can be selected using a switch on the card. If you don't change the driver-based profiles ...
Perhaps the most telling comparison, however, is that despite the 20 percent price reduction compared to the RX Vega 64, the RX Vega 56 is slower by less than 10 percent on average.
Radeon RX Vega 56 is the second AMD Vega card launched today. It comes at an affordable 9 price point, with a slightly reduced shader count that actually improves things greatly. For example, power efficiency now trades blows with some Pascal cards, which means less heat and noise, too.
On the AMD side of things, it is the AMD Radeon RX 480, or that card's successors, the Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570. Therefore, the Vega 56 should be more than adequate for today's VR ...

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 is the little sister of Vega 64. It comes in at a 20% lower price than the RX Vega 64, but only has 12.5% fewer stream processors, and runs lower operating frequencies.
Meet Radeon RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 Brad Chacos/IDG AMD sent PCWorld every version of Vega for testing, including both the air-cooled and liquid-cooled versions of the Radeon RX Vega 64.
The AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 is an upper mid-range graphics card, intended to beat Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 - a job it performs admirably as the benchmarks on this page demonstrate.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 - the Digital Foundry verdict. If you're looking for an alternative to the GTX 1070, the bottom line is that you're generally getting around 10 to 12 per cent of additional ...
The Radeon RX Vega 56 is a high-end graphics card by AMD, launched in August 2017. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Vega 10 graphics processor, in its Vega 10 XL variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0.
Launching today is the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, or just Vega 64 for short. Based on a fully enabled Vega 10 GPU, the Vega 64 will come in two physical variants: air cooled and liquid cooled.
Radeon RX Vega 56 utilizes the same Vega 10 processor found in Vega 64. It’s a 486 mm² behemoth sporting 12.5 billion transistors manufactured on GlobalFoundries’ 14LPP platform.
Vega 56 vs GTX 1070, Vega goes 6-2-2 = Winner Vega! Good job AMD, hopefully next gen you can make more headway in power efficiency. But this is a good card, even beats the factory OC 1070.

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.
