In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 11.

The RX Vega has a 57 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 680, but the GeForce GTX 680 has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX Vega. As a result, the GeForce GTX 680 exhibits a 26.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX Vega. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX Vega has a 57 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 680. This results in the RX Vega providing 35.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX Vega was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 680, and so the RX Vega is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 680 when running the latest games.

The RX Vega has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 680, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 217.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 680, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GeForce GTX 680.

Both the Radeon RX Vega 11 and the GeForce GTX 680 have 1536 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce GTX 680 is 1625 and by the RX Vega is 1625. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce GTX 680 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The RX Vega transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 680. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 680.

The GeForce GTX 680 requires 195 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 680. The GeForce GTX 680 has been recommended a PSU with 150 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 680 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GH is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 24 Compute Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 1063MHz and goes up to 1190MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.6Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 204.8GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1060. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.GeForce GTX 680 is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
The Kepler architecture allows more SPUs but the Fermi SPUs (used on the 400 & 500 Series) are clocked twice as fast as the Kepler architecture. Therefore, don't let the large amount of Pipelines fool you, as the 1536 Pipelines are equivalent to 768 Pipelines, of the Fermi architecture.
GeForce GTX 680 features a 1006Mhz core-clock that can automatically set itself to 1058Mhz using a technology similar to the one used on Intel GPUs. Another huge surprise is the TDP that went from 244 Watts, to just 195 Watts, as two SPUs of the Kepler architecture consume 10% less power. However, the amount was doubled and so the power save is not as high as it could have been.
GeForce GTX 680 was the fastest single GPU of the world until Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition was released.
All games will run on the maximum settings smoothly.
