Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB Game Requirement Analysis
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.
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.
The Central Unit is clocked at 1600MHz.
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.
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.
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.
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.
