Benchmarks: Far Cry Primal, For Honor, Ghost Recon Wildlands
Interestingly when testing with Far Cry Primal we see almost no difference between the air-cooled Vega 64 and Vega 56. For that reason the liquid-cooled version was 16% faster but even so only managed to match the MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X. Given how well the RX 580 does compared to the GTX 1060 in this title you have to think some driver works needs to be done here.
Performance in For Honor is okay, Vega 56 roughly matches the GTX 1070. Vega 64 is less impressive as the air-cooled model trails the GTX 1080 FE while it takes the more expensive liquid cooled version to match the MSI GTX 1080. Vega is more appealing if you focus on the 1% lows for this title, but either way the liquid cooled edition is much closer to the GTX 1080 than it is the 1080 Ti.
Vega 56 manages to match the GTX 1070 FE card in Ghost Recon Wildlands though again we see that Vega 64 really isn't much faster. The liquid cooled version did average 71fps though this only put it on par with the GTX 1080 FE and a few frames behind the MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X.
