RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX Vega 64

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My usage:

 

I will need the card for 3D modeling/rendering, video editing and gaming. I will be buying a FreeSync monitor regardless of which card I choose

 

According to benchmarks, the two seem very close in performance, but the Vega seems to be much faster in 3D rendering.

Also, I read somewhere that when rendering, the Vega is able to utilize system RAM when the VRAM is full while the 2070 isn't able to, is this true?

 

What are you thoughts?

so if you intend to fame more get the 2070 but if you intend to do more productivity get the vega

Just wondering, what causes this differences?

If you're buying a free sync monitor, then the only option is Vega in my opinion. 

 

To answer the question of why AMD is better on productivity tasks, I'm fairly certain its got to do with the type of RAM they use.  Could be wrong, but I think that's the reason.

The pros of the 64 for your scenario outweigh the 2070. Just make sure you get a card with a good cooler and make sure the psu you have, or have picked to buy is reliable, since vega uses more power than nvidia cards.

I'm buying the default version AMD releases with the blower style cooler since it's $100 cheaper than alternatives. Is that good enough?

ehhh those blower coolers are pretty bad. If not you're not going really hard on the card it can manage, but they can get pretty loud in a gaming session or just heavy use. Consider a better cooler even if you have to fork up some more money, because like I said, vega uses more power so that means they get hotter.

Except for any kind of productivity workload that benefits from CUDA

just be advice you'll need a beefy psu for vega64, preferably a 700w class one. also undervolting works really well with vega cards.


why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

I had a Gigabyte reference RX VEGA 64 (I've since sold it off and replaced it with a Gigabyte RX VEGA 64 Gaming OC), pic below:

I also have a PowerColor RX VEGA 64 Red Devil, do note the massive heatsink (the Gigabyte Gaming OC runs about just as cool), pic is together with my Palit RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Pro OC, not exactly a small card, but the Red Devil is easily longer and a tad wider)

I ran these cards in CF mode, with the Red Devil as primary, and the stock card as secondary as shown below (do note that the bottom card is getting cool exterior air via the two fans below, I have since increased it to three intake fans), the Red Devil on top gets less cool air than it:

Yet, look at these temp readings, guess which runs cooler......I don't have to tell you, do I? Basically, I'm advising you to get one with a better cooler, the Red Devil is expensive, but the Gigabyte RX VEGA 64 Gaming OC is a no frills card that's less costly, Sapphire Nitro+ is good, but expensive as well.
