Vega 64 Freesync VS 1080/2070 No G-SYNC

Hello,

 

I'm about to buy a new graphic card in 2-3 months the time i save the money for it. I can't really afford a 1080 TI or 2080 TI, but i still want Something enough good for years.

 

So, i have a 1080p 144Hz monitor, but it support only Freesync, not G-Sync. This make me think that a graphic card with freesync like a Vega 64 would be better than a 1080 / 2070 from nvidia without G-sync.

 

  I saw that G-Sync / Free-Sync are a bit must-have for a gamer, it is ? Would appreciate more details about that. What happen if i have 150 FPS on a 144 Hz monitor for exemple, without freesync / g-sync, will it be as good as with freesync/g-sync?

 

And the main question is : Does the sacrifice to a Vega 64 for Freesync with it's super high power comsuption, is still Worth it on a 1080/2070 but no G-sync and free sync ?

 

As i dont have enough incoming to afford a G-Sync monitor, this make me really think that a Vega 64 Freesync would gave me a better experience than a 1080/2070 card without any sync, even if those last ones give a bit more FPS.

 

What do you guys think about that?

It depends, for a 144hz monitor, I think it is. If you have 150FPS on a 144hz monitor, you can just enable vsync and it will lock at 144hz. And you don't need freesync for that.

Maybe look for a used 1080ti on ebay or something like that. The vega 64 may get replaced in the next year, and it is not that great for FPS to money ratio

So it's still not even Worth it with Freesync ?

 

I mean if i get 1080ti, i will be able to use sync ?

adaptive sync can help improve graphics quality by removing screen tearing, which I'm sure you will benefit in AAA games since Vega cards (56 is better buy than 64 for gaming because their performance there isnt all that different, and about 10% better when overclocked memory) can't hit that frame rate with higher graphics settings.

 

Is it a must have? Not really (after all faster card comes first), but I will spend extra for a card that performs the same, but supports Freesync.

It's not super high when undervolted and not overclocking the GPU core.

Personally I would go Vega 56 undervolt it ( loads of vids on it and it's really easy) and small increase in memory clock.( Again loads of vids on it) will give you 1080 performance and as stated above will outperform a stock Vega 64 and you get g sync ( with the low prices of Vega at the moment it's a nice option at long last  . It will give you a fantastic gaming experience.   Nothing wrong with the Nvidia options apart from the adaptive sync .   If you are not that bothered about the adaptive sync then a 1080 or 1070ti would also be great cards but would also only be able to use vsync .   

 

Anyway I would say it's not a super must have but it's certainly a very nice to have 

 

Good luck with whatever you decide to get

Personally, I would take the vega64 free sync option if you are planning on keeping that card for a long time since there isn't much of a performance difference between the cards you are comparing.

 

I had an AMD R7 360 gpu coupled with a Samsung CFG70 144hz freesync monitor and I was fairly happy with the fps, I can dip to around 40fps and it was still perfectly playable almost like 60fps. 

 

I did get an r9 280x (for free) and while that was better, I could easily switch back to the R7 360 with freesync (the r9 280x does not have freesync).

I think either way is fine, I run an RTX 2080 Ti on a Freesync 3440x1440 display, and since the card is pretty powerful, I find no screen tearing whatsoever. I do, however, have a choice because I have a CF RX VEGA 64 setup that can max out games at that res and near max setting (Metro 2033 Redux with all setting maxed except for SSAA at 0.5X, at 2.0x the cards struggle somewhat though still playable at abt 50+ fps to 80+ fps, no PhysX of course). As long as either card can hit the sweetspot framerate (60 fps to 100+ fps) I don't see that screen tearing would be an issue.
