In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8.

The GTX 680 has a 179 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX Vega. This results in the GTX 680 providing 67.6 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 GTX 680 has a 179 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 680 providing 5.7 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 three years more recently than the GTX 680, and so the RX Vega is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 680 when running the latest games.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX Vega has 166.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 680, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GTX 680.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 680 is 1806. The GTX 680 having 965 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 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 680. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition requires 195 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 680. The GTX 680 has been recommended a PSU with 150 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 680 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 680. See the standard version for more information about it.
Compared to the standard version, GeForce GTX 680 Galaxy Edition features an increased core-clock that went from 1006MHz to 1110MHz and the turbo boost from 1100MHz to 1176MHz. The amount of memory was also increased from 2GB to 4GB, proving useful if gaming at high resolutions and using many image improving techniques, though we consider this excessive.
Expect a 9% performance boost when compared to the standard card.
