Performance summary charts & graphs

Here are our performance results of 35 games and 4 synthetic tests comparing the Red Devil RX Vega 56 with the Gigabyte RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled Edition and versus the Founders Edition of the GTX 1070 Ti.

All results except for synthetic bencharks are expressed in average FPS (in Bold) and also generally in minimum FPS (in smaller italics next to the averages).  Each card is compared against the other in the adjoining results column at 1920×1080, 2560×1440, and at 3840×2160.  The first column represents the PowerColor Red Devil RX Vega 56, the second column shows the GTX 1070 Ti results, and the third column represents the RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled edition performance.

The Red Devil RX Vega 56 comes very close in performance to the GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition, winning 47 individual game benchmarks to the NVIDIA card’s 58 wins.  This means that the Red Devil RX Vega 56 should also come very close in performance to a reference RX Vega 64, although it is outclassed by the premium higher-clocked RX Vega 64 Liquid cooled edition which also does not throttle.

It will be interesting to see if anything changes when we overclock our Red Devil RX Vega 56 to its maximum and then pit it against the overclocked GTX 1070 Ti for our next overclocking showdown.

Let’s head for our conclusion.


  1. We just got pricing from PowerColor for the Red Devil RX Vega 56 and 64 and I will update the article within the hour

    – 64: $699

    – 56: $599

    • So 200$ over MSRP… and yet those AIB coolers are trash compared Raijintek Morpheus II or AC Acceelero III/IV. Advanced Mining/Milking Devices it is.

      • You think Red Devil coolers are trash?

        I’ve had an RX 470 twin fan Red Devil and an RX 480 triple fan Red Devil and I thought they were excellent coolers second only to Sapphires. With both Powercolor & Sapphire being AMD only partners they tend to do the best AMD coolers.

  2. Well to bad… if gamer could pick one up for $430 It has merit.

    We need to consider GloFo/AMD is probably really juggling 14nm production/wafers to keep Ryzen/TR in the market, even just now slowing off fulfilling Vega to Apple while now seeing finally the ramp-up in the AIB Vega cards. And all they can produce look to go to miner’s as they are the one’s that would pay this price. While Polaris chip even though they could sell plenty it’s constrained because AMD/RTG isn’t near the level of 2014-2015 Tahiti/Hawaii volumes that they got from TSCM. That was a problem putting all your production in GloFo, just when the CPU demand would go through the roof. To bad they didn’t keep at least Polaris at TSCM we might see less of the inventory problems.
