you'll source tech gets updated multiple times a day with variety of tech products so if you guys live in the US UK in Canada and want to save money on your next purchase consider bookmarking dual source tech and checking back at least once a day Vega is finally here and it's aimed to compete against the gtx 1070 and 1080 this is the current pricing for the GPUs the Vegas 64 by itself starts at $4.99 while the 54 starts at 399 aim they also introduced Radeon packs which gives you some pretty cool discounts on gear so the two cards that I have here for comparison are the Vega 56 and the Vega 64 liquid-cooled version which actually costs $200 more than the air-cool version it's also combined with their Radeon aqua pack unfortunately that is the only way you'll be able to buy this right now so here's what you get in the Radeon pack you get $20 off a free sync enabled monitor $100 off select Verizon 7 CPU and motherboard combos and 2 free games if you don't care about the games or don't need to upgrade your monitor then the aqua pack is simply not worth it however if you're going to make use of the entire $420 savings then go for it you guys spend an extra hundred dollars on the pack and save $420 netting you $320 worth of savings all right so the main difference between the air cooled and the liquid cooled Vegas 64 cards are the clock speeds the single point performance and of course the power consumption it's also a lot cooler and quieter than the air-cooled version my buddy Kyle from bit with reported his air-cooled 64 hitting 85 degrees on full load compared to only 64 on my liquid cooled version alright so I will be comparing these two GPUs against the asus strix gtx 1070 and ii 1080 since those are the cards that they are competing with unfortunately I don't have the founders edition on hand so I decided to stick with the same brand GPU to keep things more consistent this is the test bed that I ended up using so without wasting any more time let's dive right into the benchmarks all right so we got some interesting numbers the GTX 1080 did better in most of the games with the Vegas 64 right behind it there were even some games that the Vegas 64 scored better like on battlefield 1 doom on Vulcan and even division by Tom Clancy however the 1080 did end up winning with a total of 64 frames more than Vegas 64 the Vega 56 did have some trouble keeping up with the gtx 1070 as well you guys can blame optimization for the time being but with the current drivers the g6 1070 is the clear winner in pure raw performance over the Vega 56 air-cooled card however when we take a look at frames per dollar it's pretty obvious that the RX Vega 56 gives you the most bang for your buck coming in a little over 2 frames per dollar followed closely by the GTX 1070 the Vega 64 liquid-cooled version did horribly in terms of value if only it didn't cost $200 more than the Aero cool version it would have been a much better value over to 1080 with a total of 2.1 frames per dollar assuming the performance is the same as the liquid-cooled version alright so in conclusion the clear winner here is obviously the 1080 in terms of raw power but if you guys want to get the most out of your money and only have about 400 dollars to spend on your gpu-z Vega 56 is the obvious choice I'm sure if you guys give Andy some time for optimizations and driver updates the to Vega cards will perform a lot faster just like we saw with their previous rx 500 series I will be doing a follow-up video and comparing all the new amv cards starting from the rx 550 and up against Nvidia's lineup starting from the GTX 1050 so if you guys are excited for that drop a like in the video but until then I'll drop a link to all the GPUs featured in this video I hope it was helpful thank you guys so much for watching and I will see you in the next one
