It should be remembered that the Radeon RX 64 offers 4096 Stream Processors, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs at a Base / Turbo frequency of 1247/1546 MHz along with 8 GB of HBM2 @ 950 MHz memory and a 2048-bit memory interface giving rise to a bandwidth of 484.3 GB / s reaching a yield of 12.66 TFLOPs with a TDP of 295W.
The Radeon R9 Fury X maintains the same configuration of SPs, TMUs and ROPs although under the architecture GCN 3.0 (Fiji) at a frequency of 1050 MHz attached to 4 GB of memory HBM @ 1.00 GHz with a memory interface of 4096 bits giving a bandwidth of 512 GB / s, yield of 8.60 TFLOPs and a TDP of 275W.
As can be seen, at Full HD resolution, there is a difference of 27 FPS in favor of the RX Vega 64, or in other words, a performance increase of 26%. The difference is reduced in 2K resolution with a difference of 17 FPS (+ 21%), and at 4K the difference is marked at 14 FPS (+ 35%).
Apart from the official benchmarks from AMD side, foregin media TechPowerUp also posted Battlefield 1 benchmarks and also added graphics cards from rival camp a GeForce GTX 1080 and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. From the below leaked benchmarks we can see that performance of Radeon VEGA 64 is similar to the GeForce GTX 1080.
