How well can the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games. This short Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 929 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB graphics card is predicted to return a good performance on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at 1080p of 67 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Watch Dogs Legion which we predict will get good frame rates of 71 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Assassins Creed: Valhalla, which is predicted to get 51 FPS under tests.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB by researching Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leading us to predict a reasonable performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 135FPS, M: 106FPS, H: 72FPS, U: 51FPS. Another popular game we researched with this card was Watch Dogs Legion and that was reasonable. This graphics card is predicted to deliver 54 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Assassins Creed: Valhalla which is predicted to get playable results with a 39FPS on Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB, this is a solid choice of hardware for increased screen resolution gaming. We can see this graphics card is capable of delivering reliable frame rates at Ultra and certainly High graphics settings at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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 Nano 8GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB.

Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming small form factor (SFF) 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 Nano 8GB will still likely offer performance faster than a GeForce GTX 1070 yet slower than a GTX 1080.


Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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 200W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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, while the SFF means it can excell if mini-ITX builds.


System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Nano 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
