    A quick word on overclocking. We managed to run the Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 at 1,980MHz core
    Nope.

    Re: Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 Strix Gaming

    At £450, this'd be a good deal. At £500, it's roughly on par with a GTX 1080, but a bit of a hard pill to swallow, based on the power consumption. At £550 to £600, it's in a price deadzone between the 1080 and the 1080 Ti, where many would be better-placed going with the 1080 Ti.

    Re: Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 Strix Gaming

    Its quite interesting - AMD has managed to get significantly higher clockspeeds with Vega than before. Hopefully once they move to TSMC again next year,they can try and get power consumption under control with their next generation. GF 14NM is known to get quite ragged once its pushed too far - even Ryzen has the same problem if pushed to the edge. Its really a mobile orientated process made for smaller chips,especially CPUs and the original Samsung process it is based on is apparently better too.

    My 1070 has 2 8 pins because it's aftermarket.

    Re: Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 Strix Gaming

    Those core clocks sound unrealistic. Were you running the latest driver? Older drivers misreport core clocks (this has been widely reported).

    Re: Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 Strix Gaming

    What exactly is the point to Vega 64 if it's slower & more expensive than many 1080's?

    Take mining pressure off the Polaris cards? Can't think of anything beyond that.

    It is the rickety, unstable and poorly supported bridge between a complete lack of high end GCN cards and "the dream" of a Navi which is actually good. Vega is where the experimental stuff happens, Navi is where they make it work. In theory.

    Don't hold your breath.

    Re: Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 Strix Gaming

    The lack of a 4k gaming card is a deal breaker for me. makes a nonsense of my LG 43" 4k screen Can;t even chain them to use crossfire so that we have an option at 4k.

    I'll wait till the next set of AMD cards - not going to be changing my screen as I'm VERY happy with. Will have to eek every last bit of performance out of my GTX 1080.
