In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070.

The RX Vega has a 94 MHz higher core clock speed and 136 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1070. This results in the RX Vega providing 228.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX Vega has a 94 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 1070 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX Vega providing 6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX Vega was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 1070, and so the RX Vega is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 1070.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB and the GeForce GTX 1070 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX Vega, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is marginally better than the RX Vega.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 4260 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 102 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX Vega performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RX Vega transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 1070. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1070.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB requires 375 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070. The RX Vega requires 225 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XT GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. Vega 10 XTX is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1600MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB competes with GeForce GTX 1080 8GB, which is available for $499.
Specs currently available suggest the Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1080. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P104-200-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 15 SM activated, offering 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs.
