Benchmarks: Dawn of War III, Watch_Dogs2
When testing Vega 56 I was pretty shocked by how strong this GPU was in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. Since then other media outlets have also confirmed exceptional performance for Vega in this title so I'm confident in the results. If every game looked like this AMD would be laughing. Anyway Vega 56 sticks it to the GTX 1080 while the Vega 64 models pull even further head. The liquid cooled edition gets within spitting distance of the GTX 1080 Ti, get it, it's liquid coo... ahh never mind moving on.
Watch Dogs 2 hates AMD -- it doesn't matter if it's the company's Ryzen CPUs or Vega GPUs. Here we see the GTX 1070 Founders Edition model giving not just Vega 56 a hard time but also Vega 64. Liquid cooling Vega 64 pushes it ahead, but only just... just ahead of the GTX 1070 that is.
