In provision for the AMD RX Vega‘s official release at the end of month July, AMD has decided to take its latest GPU out for a small tour. During these small events for fanbase, AMD is teasing off the RX Vega to the public for the first time and competing it up against the Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080, originally confirming which part of the market AMD is targeting with the upcoming RX Vega.
The RX Vega out on a two-step tour by AMD, which has been started in Budapest yesterday. In the event closed gaming systems were shown and they were set up for a ‘blind test’, which sadly means performance was only calculated by approach, with no FPS counters on display. Still the fact that AMD is putting the RX Vega up against the GeForce GTX 1080 is very promising.
This isn’t the first time that we have noted that the RX Vega will target the GTX 1080. The latest performance leaks for Vega put it at a 15 percent advantage over the GTX 1080 but couldn’t entirely meet GeForce GTX 1080Ti performance levels.
Throughout the tests at the Budapest event, AMD was showing both graphics cards running Sniper Elite 4 and Battlefield, all on a (4K) 3440×1440 ultra-wide display. The last stop on the Vega tour will be Portland bounded by the 21st and 23rd of July. Then a week later we should see the official unveiling at SIGGRAPH, with the RX Vega out for AMD fans in August.
