strix 1070ti vs rx vega 56

TMobile
 Share

Hi there,

 

Last night I made a post without a conclusive answer, but I've narrowed down my choices.

I can get either a strix 1070ti at 515 EUR (with COD and monster hunter: world)

or a strix vega 56 (O8G) at 469 EUR (without any games).

I would opt for the vega because I have a freesync monitor, but I'd choose the 1070ti because of its efficiency.

 

What would you choose?

 

Or should I get a strix vega 64 at 517 EUR?

I was gonna say 1070Ti until you mentioned freesync.

With freesync i'd say you are better of with the Vega 56 or 64. Vega 64 is a little slower than the 1070Ti when playing in Full HD.

 

My opinion tho. Wait for other answers if you get any.

If you could rank them on performance it would be 1070 - vega 56 - vega 64 - 1070ti (on full hd)

Is this list the same for 1440p?

On 1440p it get almost even with vega 64 and 1070Ti, but in some cases vega 64 wins. Checked few reviews and game comparisons. Ofc if you want the best performance/efficiency then it's still 1070Ti.

 

Personally i would choose the Vega64 since with freesync you get a smoother gaming experience. PERSONAL opinion tho.

Didn't think VEGA 56 was still expensive in EU as in my country the VEGA 64 went down to $359.

 

Anyways, if you can get the VEGA 64 for roughly the same price or slightly higher than the GTX 1070Ti I'd say go for it since you have a FreeSync monitor...

As long as the monitor is at least 1440p. Because if it's only 1080p even if it's 144Hz the GTX 1070Ti would be better as the performance scales well across a majority of games.

Finished Crysis without a discrete GPU,15 FPS average, and a lot of heart

 

How I plan my builds -

Spoiler

For me I start with the "There's no way I'm not gonna spend $1,000 on a system."

Followed by the "Wow I need to buy the OS for a $100!?"

Then "Let's start with the 'best budget GPU' and 'best budget CPU' that actually fits what I think is my budget."

Realizing my budget is a lot less, I work my way to "I think these new games will run on a cheap ass CPU."

Then end with "The new parts launching next year is probably gonna be better and faster for the same price so I'll just buy next year."

IF you do decide on a VEGA, go for non-reference cooler models like Sapphire Nitro or PowerColor Red Devil series, there's a good difference in temps. I have a reference model and a Red Devil VEGA 64, and the latter is easily 10C (or more) cooler than the reference model.

 

Just played UT for about 30 mins, here's a screenshot of GPUZ, the one on the left is the VEGA 64 Red Devil (with its massive cooler) and on the right is the stock/reference VEGA 64.....note the difference in temps, both core and HBM (memory)

This price is including tax (21%), i have a 1080p uw monitor, but hope to get another one soon, would you then suggest a 1070ti, vega 64 or maybe a vega 56?

 

Edit: prices are also quite because of the asus strix model

At 1080p, I'd say either card is overkill. You might go with the cheaper one as I don't think it matters at 1080p even if you plan to use freesync

 

....

 

or I might be wrong if your monitor is a 120Hz or 144Hz one. I've only demoed butter smooth refresh rates in retail stores so I can't give an accurate response on what it takes to run them because higher FPS is also attributable to higher CPU core frequencies. That's if it really is a high refresh rate monitor. If it's 60Hz it doesn't matter what card you pick.

I have been thinking upgrading my rx480 to something more powerful. As I have 1080p monitor it's battle between 1070, 1070Ti and Vega 56. To me the 1070 looks nice as it has the same tdp as my rx480 but has like 30% performance. I have itx build so getting hotter gpu might cause problems. But I have this vision that my next build would be all AMD, so that Vega 56 is tempting. But then again I still use i5-3570K so this might take a while :) 

But interested to see what gpu you choose and why.

I'd get the V64 and put that FreeSync to good use.

 

Also there is no such thing as Vega 64 selling brand new for 360 dollars, any where in the world.
