How well can the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 976 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a good frame rate from Horizon: Zero Dawn with 77 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Grand Theft Auto VI which is predicted to return a reasonable 49 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Marvel's Avengers which we predict will get a good 77 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Horizon: Zero Dawn on the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB to see that it got a reasonable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 154FPS, M: 121FPS, H: 82FPS, U: 58FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Grand Theft Auto VI which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 37 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Marvel's Avengers where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were reasonable at 58 FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB, this is a reliable performer at this larger resolution for modern games. The graphics card will be good to run 1440p on Ultra or High settings.

How many years will the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080, which has 21% better performance and can run 996 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5950 XT. This PC hardware upgrade performs 22% better and can run 996 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
The Vega 10 Pro GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5.
While the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse and Nova use a slightly faster Vega 10 XT GPU, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB will still likely offer performance faster than a GeForce GTX 1070 yet slower than a GTX 1080.


Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB GPU has 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This puts its performance roughly in line with $350 GeForce GTX 1070.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1500MHz.


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.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 1440p Gaming. The RX Vega Core's performance at this resolution should be excellent, however users with 4K displays may find it bottlenecks performance.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 300W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
Radeon RX Vega Core 8GB competes with the GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, which is available for $349.
However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.


System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560 x1440 (1440p). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.is
