AMD Radeon RX Vega smiles for camera

First 3DMark performance numbers are in

Reviewers around the world have received their AMD Radeon RX Vega review samples as well as the final drivers and it was just a matter of time before we saw some unboxing leaks as well as the first performance figures.

Spotted originally by, the unboxing of the Radeon RX Vega sample was done by (and removed). The box shots show that samples won’t have the Vega 64 logo, but just rather a standard Radeon RX Vega one, and won't include the previously seen Holocube.

The neat looking packaging includes a reference card with a standard blower style cooler, a Vega GPU, and few other goodies. The cooler design looks similar to the RX 480 but the RX Vega is a bit longer card, drawing power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

Since reviewers already have samples, it does not come as a big surprise that some 3DMark results already ended up online, showing that the RX Vega 64 performance is somewhat close to the GTX 1080, just as we wrote earlier.

According to these scores, the Radeon RX Vega 64 gets a GPU score of just above 22k in 3DMark Fire Strike Performance, just above 10k in the Fire Strike Extreme, around 5.7k in Fire Strike Ultra, and around 7k in 3DMark Time Spy benchmark.

Of course, take these performance results with a grain of salt as we are still a few days away from the official launch scheduled for Monday, August 14th. Reviewers got the card and the final driver has been ready for a couple of days now and we surely can't wait to see those performance numbers in games, across different resolutions and different APIs.
