Radeon RX Vega 64 is beating GTX 1080 Ti in Forza 7

Posted on Monday, October 02 2017 @ 12:43:50 CEST by

To put it mildly, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 disappointed a lot of gamers as the card didn't live up to all the hype and dreams about how Vega would smash NVIDIA to smithereens. In specific use cases, the Vega chip can be the better option though, and now some Forza 7 benchmarks are causing controversy as they reveal mighty good performance for the Radeon RX Vega lineup.

German tech site ComputerBase benched all its NVIDIA and AMD video cards in this upcoming DirectX 12 game and saw that Vega has more octane in its blood than Pascal.

In Full HD resolution testing, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 beat the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in both average FPS and 99th percentile scores. On average, the Vega 64 is 23 percent faster and even the Vega 56 scores 10 percent higher than the GTX 1080 Ti.

But the difference gets smaller as you move on to higher resolutions. In 2560 x 1440 pixels testing the Vega cards still win in terms of 99th percentile testing but the RX Vega 64's lead over the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti shrinks to 12 percent, while the RX Vega 56 is now 4 percent slower than the GTX 1080 Ti.

In 4K testing the position of the AMD card weakens. Here the GTX 1080 Ti delivers 8 percent more average FPS than the Radeon RX Vega 64. However, the Radeon RX Vega 64 and 56 still beat the GTX 1080 Ti in 99th percentile testing.

It's an outlier but definitely interesting results here. After they finished benchmarking, ComputerBase got in touch with NVIDIA to check if something was wrong with the performance of the GeForce cards but NVIDIA confirmed the behavior.
