AMD Vega 56 Faster Than GTX 1070?


Its now the 6th August and after some more digging around I’ve found a few benchmarks of one of the upcoming Vega graphics card. More specifically the Vega 56. This information shows how the Vega 56 will compare against the GTX 1070 in a popular few games. The numbers and information have come from an industry source that works with TweakTown and has given us an early look at what Vega is capable of.

Here are the leaked numbers from a Tweaktown source.

  • Battlefield 1: 95.4 fps (GTX 1070: 72.2 fps)


  • Civilization 6: 85.1 fps (GTX 1070: 72.2 fps)


  • DOOM: 101.2 fps (GTX 1070: 84.6 fps)


  • COD Infinite Warfare: 99.9 fps (GTX 1070: 92.1 fps)


The benchmarks were run at 2560 x 1440 and show that Vega outperforms the GTX 1070. The source also shed a bit of light to what settings the games were tested at. The source revealed that

Battlefield 1 was run on Ultra settings, Civ 6 was on Ultra with 4x MSAA, DOOM was at Ultra with 8x TSAA enabled, and COD:IW was running on its High preset.

The source also gives us a look at what the test system was running at the time of these tests. The system was said to include a Intel i7 7700K @ 4.2GHz, 16GB of DDR4 clocked at 3000MHz and Windows 10 OS, but there is no word on the other specifications of the system. Based on this information though it looks like the Vega will provide approximately

  • 24% higher FPS in Battlefield 1
  • 15% higher FPS in Civilization 6
  • 16% higher FPS in Doom
  • 8% higher FPS in COD Infinite Warfare

The Vega provides a decent increase over the 1070, but again I can’t confirm whether this is 100% accurate until Vega gets tested upon its release. But if these are confirmed, it looks like there will be a new king of $400 1440p graphics cards.
