Benchmarks: Rainbow Six Siege, Resident Evil 7, ROTR
Vega comes out to play in Rainbow Six Siege with the Vega 56 being 12% faster than the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X. We even see a rare quality showing from Vega 64 as the air-cooled model eeks out a win over the MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X. The liquid cooled model pushes further ahead but still lags behind the GTX 1080 Ti by a 15% margin.
Here we see again that in select titles Vega can really turn up the heat on the GeForce 10 series. This time when testing with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard we see Vega 56 beating the GTX 1070 by a decent margin, though the air-cooled Vega 64 card does struggle against the GTX 1080, at least the MSI Gaming X version.
Vega 56 makes out well in Rise of the Tomb Raider though the air-cooled Vega 64 model is less impressive. Once liquid cooled the results aren't bad and we see the same 1% low performance to that of the MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X.
