This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 967.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB is predicted to run Far Cry 6 with reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 50 frames per second. Comparing this to Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to get reasonable results, where it averages 49 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Star Citizen, which is predicted to run at 83 frames per second.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Far Cry 6 and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 101 FPS, Medium: 79 FPS, High: 53 FPS and Ultra: 38 FPS. We then checked the performance on Grand Theft Auto VI to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be playable with a 37 FPS at Ultra 1440p.

Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 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 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 Air XT 8GB will still likely offer performance faster than a GeForce GTX 1070 yet slower than a GTX 1080. Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 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 300W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon RX Vega Core 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.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 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
