AMD Radeon RX Vega bares its teeth in Forza Motorsport 7

AMD Radeon RX Vega bares its teeth in Forza Motorsport 7”

Anyone holding off on their Vega 56, GTX 1070, or 1080 purchase might want to glance at the GTX 1070 Ti's rumored specifications, as the new GPU will have 2432 CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) cores, a big leap from a GTX 1070's 1920 cores. That's a strong showing for AMD overall, and while we'd expect driver updates from Teams Red and Green to improve things in the future, it at least shows that Vega could have a bit more life in it than initially expected. The drivers were the Crimson ReLive 17.9.3 or the GeForce 385.69 installed.

In addition, both AMD's flagship RX Vega 64 and the RX Vega 56 have also recently beaten NVIDIA's flagship GTX 1080 and its more powerful version GTX 1080 Ti in "Forza Motorsport 7", which is a newly released DirectX 12 title. The drivers have been officially optimised for Forza 7 game. When compared with Nvidia's highest consumer offering, the RX Vega 64 has an increase of 23 percent over the GTX 1080 Ti, marking the first instance in a long time that AMD has taken a clear lead in the enthusiast market. The Vega 56 is even with the GTX 1080, Vega 64 is faster, and AMD manages to clinch the 99th percentile top positions, with the 1080 and 1070 well behind. At 4K, this lead is cut to 11%.

While AMD's RX Vega line managed to offer competition to Nvidia's esteemed GTX 1080, the company's range failed to scratch the performance of the GTX 1080 Ti. No unusual hardware or software bug seems to be affecting performance; Vega is seemingly coming into its own with this title, possibly making use of DX12 features to its advantage.

Our own Forza 7 review - which will be published tomorrow - has been plagued with a host of problems, including missing track textures and stuttering. We've also found enabling V-Sync to cause more issues, despite the limited fps. Once these bugs have been ironed out and performance is consistent across the board, benchmarking will be able to offer more concrete results.
