AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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 Nano 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

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

Lets look at the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2023. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 906 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB can run Back 4 Blood at 1080p and saw it return good frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 166 FPS, Medium: 131 FPS, High: 88 FPS and Ultra: 63 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to return a reasonable 45 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Back 4 Blood to see how the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB dealt with it. It scored up a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 127 FPS, Medium: 100 FPS, High: 67 FPS and Ultra: 48 FPS. Next we looked at Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will be playable with a 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Star Citizen that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 55. 1440p Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB PC gaming is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB.

Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming small form factor (SFF) Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) 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.

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.

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
