Well I sold my GTX 1070 for $4 more than what I paid for it (thanks miners).  Bought the RX 56 and it was $18 more than what I sold the GTX 1070.  Basically, Im doing another side upgrade so I can play with new stuff.  RX 56 has been great even with crap drivers.  Most things were about the same performance as my OC 1070 while running stock.  

 

I decided to go ahead and flash the card as I was not able to get over 1500mhz on the core and the HBM2 ram didn't like anything over 800mhz.  I used the air version bios of RX 64 not the liquid.  It took without any issues.  Now when I run turbo mode it clock around 1560mhz and the ram is 945mhz.  I've been able to OC into the 1600mhz range but not sure its limits but know that 1700mhz is a no go.  If I can figure out the limits, I might try to flash to the liquid version as it gives even more watts available but need to test for current heat and the fan profiles to keep it under 80c.  

 

Really a neat card and cant believe I have an all AMD system again... Super happy about that!

But that would have been an ATI card then, not AMD.

Good on you for supporting AMD.. but personally I would have stuck with the 1070, as it's quieter, cooler, and uses less power... my two cents.

Yea side grade with a slight boost but just to play with a new card, fresh warranty.  Not really worried about the power as it probably only few extra $ a month.

Yea been a long time coming, use to only run AMD cpu till Sandy :)  

 

Some quick results without any OC but with 64 bios, CPU @ 3.95ghz and should be able to bench it 200mhz more:

 

Turbo:

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/22104009

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/22104178

 

Power Limit 50%:  Not much difference, I need to find my meter to test power draw between modes.  Probably online somewhere too.  

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/22103820

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/22103876

 

Below is a quick OC, Core around 1640mhz:

OC 4%, Stock RAM, PL 50%:  

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/22104382

 

Edit:  I think I can get more out of the core maybe even 1700, might have crashed before when I had OC the RAM.  

 

1670mhz per wattman, pretty much flat line too with only a few mhz up or down in a 10mhz range:

OC 6%, Stock RAM, PL 50%:

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/22104497

 

Edit2:  Nah, crashed the core at 8%.  Sucks when my PC crashes because I have a few large spinners that are in raid1 that rebuild each time.  Looks like its off to the RAM OC now, then an OC with both CPU/GPU maxed :)

 

Will do more test soon!

Probably should unplug the raid group!

Looking at my results is kinda confusing... Im not sure how but I did get over 18k, possibly balanced mode. I probably need to look at undervolting. Really not seeing huge improvement over 56 bios so far, there's some but not huge amounts. Will be playing around more soon. Possibly flash back later.

Your rig is awesome!

 

Also.. have you played around with undervolting? Some have gone better results.. and some haven't.

Yea need to mess with undervolting as others show great results.   I have no clue on what or why my one score is 18.2k vs 17.8k in firestrike.  I went to blame the cpu but the score is on the gpu side thats different.  The clock on the 18k run is lower clocks than my OC clocks.  Ive tried to run in balance mode but gives lower than my OC, reran several times too.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

RTG boss takes 'sabbatical', Lisa Su takes over RTG

 

Seems that Vega broke Raja:

 

RTG Team,  

 

You haven't heard from me collectively in a while - a symptom not only of the whirlwind of launching Vega, but simply of the huge number of demands on my time since the formation of RTG. Looking back over this short period, it is an impressive view. We have delivered 6 straight quarters of double-digit growth in graphics, culminating in the launch of Vega and being back in high-performance. What we have done with Vega is unparalleled. We entered the high-end gaming, professional workstation and machine intelligence markets with Vega in a very short period of time. The demand for Vega (and Polaris!) is fantastic, and overall momentum for our graphics is strong.

 

Incredibly, we as AMD also managed to spectacularly re-enter the high-performance CPU segments this year. We are all exceptionally proud of Ryzen, Epyc and Threadripper. The computing world is not the same anymore and the whole world is cheering for AMD. Congratulations and thanks to those of you in RTG who helped see these products through. The market for high-performance computing is on an explosive growth trajectory driven by machine intelligence, visual cloud, blockchain and other exciting new workloads. Our vision of immersive and instinctive computing is within grasp. As we enter 2018, I will be shifting my focus more toward architecting and realizing this vision and rebalancing my operational responsibilities.  

 

At the beginning of the year I warned that Vega would be hard. At the time, some folks didn't believe me. Now many of you understand what I said. Vega was indeed hard on many, and my sincere heartfelt thanks to all of you who endured the Vega journey with me. Vega was personally hard on me as well and I used up a lot of family credits during this journey. I have decided to take a time-off in Q4 to spend time with my family. I have been contemplating this for a while now and there was never a good time to do this. Lisa and I agreed that Q4 is better than 2018, before the next wave of product excitement. Lisa will be acting as the leader of RTG during by absence. My sincere thanks to Lisa and rest of AET for supporting me in this decision and agreeing to take on additional workload during my absence.

 

I am looking to start my time-off on Sept 25th and return in December.   Thank you, all of you, for your unwavering focus, dedication and support over these past months, and for helping us to build something incredible. We are not done yet, and keep the momentum going!  

 

Regards, Raja

seems vega 64 has some hidden potential

in forza 7 its gone from a 20% lead over fury x to a 60% lead and is even 23% ahead of 1080ti at 1080p however oddly enough all the amd gpu fall behind at higher res which is a bit of a roll reversal

A bit of a strange role reversal. I was going to post this after doing a little research into whether this is an AMD optimized title but then I lost interest. I suppose it must be as it's kind of made for console first and both of them use AMD graphics.

With the GTX 1070 ti launching soon, I wonder if it will bring Vega prices down some.  Its strange because you can find 1080 for near what the launch price is for the 1070 ti.
