In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 208 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 110.7 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 208 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 13.3 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 Nano 8GB and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 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 67.3 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 Nano 8GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 3994 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6383. The GTX 1080 having 2389 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a slightly 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.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB requires 200 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 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 20 Watts more than the GTX 1080 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX Vega to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 1080.

Architecture
The Vega 10 Pro GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. While the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse and Nova use a slightly faster Vega 10 XT GPU, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB will still likely offer performance faster than a GeForce GTX 1070 yet slower than a GTX 1080. Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB GPU has 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This puts its performance roughly in line with $350 GeForce GTX 1070.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1500MHz.

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 1440p Gaming. The RX Vega Core's performance at this resolution should be excellent, however users with 4K displays may find it bottlenecks performance.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 200W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB competes with the GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, which is available for $349.
However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions, while the SFF means it can excell if mini-ITX builds.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560 x1440 (1440p). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.is
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1708MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1847MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock has been increased from 1250MHZ to 1263MHz.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool. TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7% at 3840x2160.
