In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB are marginally better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB.

The RX 5700 has a 218 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5700. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 108.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 5700. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 5700 has a 218 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5700 providing 14 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 5700 was released over a year more recently than the RX Vega, and so the RX 5700 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX Vega.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX 5700 has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX Vega, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5700 is massively better than the RX Vega.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 6332 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5700 is 2583. The RX Vega having 3749 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX 5700 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RX 5700 transistor size technology is 7 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX Vega. This means that the RX 5700 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX Vega.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB requires 295 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 5700. The RX Vega requires 115 Watts more than the RX 5700 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 5700.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the fifth (5.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XT GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.1 and Open GL 4.6. Vega 10 XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1247MHz with a boost clock speed of 1546MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
The GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 8GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 295W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
The Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB is in in the same region as the GeForce GTX 1080. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x 2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 36 Compute Units activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1465 MHz base clock speed and up to 1725 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 15% faster than a GeForce RTX 2060. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the Radeon RX Vega 64.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1465 MHz, rising to 1725 MHz with boost clock enabled..

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 180W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $499.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB performance should be in the same region as the Radeon RX Vega 64.
System Suggestions
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 MSI 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 1440p. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
