Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is inferior to the GeForce GTX 1080 in most games
Professional graphics cards Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is already sold, so some buyers have the option to compare the performance of new products to counter AMD and its gaming rivals Nvidia.
Recall, gaming card Radeon RX Vega its parameters must be practically identical to the model GeForce Vega Frontier Edition. Given that the latter also has a special game mode in the driver, it results in the theory can roughly judge the game flagship.
So, one of the owners of Radeon Vega Frontier Edition compared it with four competitors in modern games. Against novelties made GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1080 GTX 1070 and Radeon Fury X. the Results can be seen in the graphs below. For starters, the resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
As you can see, the results became inconsistent. Somewhere Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is very close to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but somewhere loses even the GTX 1070. Perhaps this is due to just the drivers. Look at the result in 4K resolution, which is more interesting when testing adapters such level.
In this case, in all tests, the new AMD is inferior to the GTX 1080. But due to the lack of GTX 1070’s hard to say how stable proved to Radeon Vega Frontier Edition in 4K resolution. In General we can say that the new AMD are unable to adequately compete with the GTX 1080, but it’s still a professional card for other tasks. We can only wait for the Radeon RX Vega and see how much better (or not) will perform this adapter due to the other driver.
