RX VEGA 64 with Core i5-6500 benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

With some tuning, the RX VEGA 64 makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. It is worth noting that the RX VEGA 64 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX VEGA 64 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. It is important to know that RX VEGA 64 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between RX VEGA 64 and Intel Core i5-6500 @ 3.20GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 .
