Benchmarks: Titanfall 2, The Division, Total War: Warhammer
The Titanfall 2 results are very competitive as we see Vega 56 match the GTX 1070. The air-cooled Vega 64 model can't quite catch the GTX 1080 but the liquid cooled version gets the job done, albeit at a questionable price premium.
Tom Clancy's The Division was tested using DirectX 12 and here Vega 56 trounces the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X in a true display of pixel dominance. Even Vega 64 does well, yeah the flipping air-cooled version actually beats the GTX 1080 by a handy margin and this means the liquid cooled model is hot on the heels of the GTX 1080 Ti.
Testing Total War: Warhammer usually plays into AMD's hands and we certainly see that here. Vega 56 is nipping at the 1080's heels while the air-cooled Vega 64 outpaces the GTX 1080. The liquid cooled card meanwhile was on the hunt for Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti though it's not quite quick enough off the mark and ultimately gets left behind.
