In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition.

The GTX 1080 has a 360 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1080. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 62.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1080. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 has a 360 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 23 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 GTX 1080, 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 GTX 1080.

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 Air 8GB and the GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1080 has 64.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX Vega, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is much better than the RX Vega.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 4116 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 5989. The GTX 1080 having 1873 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX Vega.

The RX Vega transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the RX Vega should consume less power than the GTX 1080.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB requires 295 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition requires 180 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 GTX 1080. The RX Vega requires 115 Watts more than the GTX 1080 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 GTX 1080.

The Vega 10 XTX GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. Vega 10 XT 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 1247MHz witth a boost clock speed of 1546MHz.

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.
The GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 8GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 295W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XTX 8GB is in 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 Air XTX 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.
