Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
The Vega 10 XL GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5.
While the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse uses the same Vega 10 XT GPU as the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, it is slightly down. This variant of the Vega 10 XL GPU with 56 Compute Units activated, offering 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 56 ROPs, making it an estimated 12.5% slower than the Radeon RX Vega 64. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the 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 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 300W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB competes with GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, which is available for $399.
Specs currently available suggest the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1070. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.


System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 56 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.is

The makeup for this gpu is 3584:224:64. If you use AMD's website above and reverse the math for peak pixel fill-rate, you get 64. The texture units is listed as 256 and stream processors is listed as 3584.

"Specs currently available suggest the Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1070. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions."


But has one of the worst ratings on the site. Also someone else mentioned mistakes. I have submitted a case to be added to the site before, I know these things need to be reviewed and approved, so what is going on here?

A few errors:
* It has 3 DP and 1 HDMI
* Memory is 800 MHz with 2048 bit bus = 410 GB/s bandwidth
* Power is 210W
* Clocks are 1156 base / 1471 boost / 1590

So you say the 8GB frame buffer may be a bottleneck for this card but the Vega 64 with the same memory but a more powerful card has enough memory how bizarre.
