Just a tip, I ordered this card and then placed it for delivery in the middle of the week so if something good happens on sunday for the new 5700 cards i can cancel it, if not i got this card at a good price

Another thing i am going to do is if you dont want game pass sell the code on and say you get £15 for it that makes this card £223.99 with the Amazon Assistant discount.

i already have gamepass for 3 years lol

What are you hoping for with the 5700 release?
That the 5700 is cheap enough to get instead or that the rx56 goes down in price more?
Edited by: "stovy" 6th Jul
I don’t think it will drip anymore. Which is fine but if the 5700 hits say £280 I might have to have a rethink. If not and it’s £350 I don’t care how good the 5700 is I will not buy it.

I mean I have read the vega 56 can compete with the Nvidia 2060 super in some games.
Not worth the money. Look at ANY reviews and you'll see that it is not a good card, especially considering the price. I'm a AMD fan but this is not a good card.
Even as an AMD fan....Nvidia trounce this for the same price....and while there are CERTAIN areas this competes......its not enough.

Disagree undervolt this Vega and clock it and it will bench the same as a 2060 which costs considerably more. Better still many folk are finding they can flash a stock Vega 64 bios on these and convert them to Vega 64 then undervolt and push them even further. Best graphics card at this price point no question .

not really, the 56 beats the 1660ti and the next closest would be the rtx 2060 for £280+ for the lower end coolers, compared to the one of the best aib vega 56's for £30+ cheaper with 2gb extra vram for futureproofing.

can flashing the vega 56 to a vega 64 damage the card at all and what about the warranty and undervolt only ? also what sort of improvements would you expect:

1, undervolt the vega 56 improve things much from stock ?
2, flash the vega 56 to 64 would that improve things much from stock ?
3, flash the vega 56 to 64 and undervolt the card would that improve things much from stock ?

thanks

yes I have seen many review where the vega 56 is just as good as the NVidia 2060 or beats it and sometimes losses to it depending on the game. but I just looked up a NVidia 2060 and that costs £310 for the same type of cooler and has 2gb less memory than this.

I ordered a vega 56 anyway as for the price seems spot on but like I said I have it on hold till Tuesday to see what happens tommorw

Flashing is fine for the most part as long as done properly and with the correct bios.

You'd flash primarily for the increased HBM voltage as opposed to the raised power limit of the 64, as the 56 with a +50% power limit doesnt top out unless you're going for max overclocks at the highest voltage, which isn't ideal anyway

Undervolt at stock clocks is more beneficial for reference cards due to the less effective cooler so the lower temps allow it to sustain boost clocks more consistently.

My advice is to set your p6 core to 1640 and P7 core ti 1670, your voltage to 1050mv and 1100mv respectively and see how it runs. If the sustained clock held in games and benchmarks after the first 30m is about in the middle of those 2 then you're good. If the clocks are lower than the P6 or you are experiencing instability then up the voltage for both in 10mv increments.

For HBM in my experience 1000mhz seems to be a good place and anything over can affect core clock stability while not providing much return. However at the stock 56 voltage 875-900 on the hbm should be possible for most quite easily, so it's still a few % extra performance.

At those clocks it should more or less be on par with a 64/2060 overall but still have reasonable heat and power consumption.

Try to keep your hot spot temp below 90 which with a decent fan curve should be no problem.

thanks will look into that
Happy i got this now

Getting The vega 56 thank god saved me £100 over the 5700, That £100 saved will go towards the rest of my new build. The vega 56 still keeps games above 60fps at 1440 anyway.

I can not see them dropping the vega 56 at all now as its still cheaper than the 5700 as its priced now, The 5700 are blower cards as well as when the custom cooler versions come out they prob be even higher priced which could be £50 more so getting the vega 56 could be a potential £150 saving when they come out.

not very often i get a good deal, lol

of to see what i can build
Edited by: "meridiusuk" 7th Jul
Just watched the hardware unboxed review of RX5700. They have it at stock 11% faster than stock Vega 56 over 12 games at 1440p. I suspect a undervolt and overclock will see these Vega cards match that, To my mind the Vega then becomes a steal. Given it is approx £100 cheaper , has a much better cooling solution (noise and temperature) and has a backplate. (RX5700 hasn't got one). Look forward to receiving mine,

It really doesnt....the fact that so many reviews have included it because of the Navi cards tiday means there is tons of proof that the 56 is quite a bit behind in everythi g but Battlefield.

I agree. Realistically it would mean if a game was running at 111 FPS on a RX5700 it would be running at 100FPS on a VEGA 56 would you really notice that difference and that's without undervolting and overclocking the HBM.

Really, watch the hardware unboxed review of the RX 5700 +XT, ignore all the cards except the Vega 56 and GTX 1080 & RTX 2060

Over all the Bench's at 1440p, this is clearly seen in the cost per frame chart

Vega 56 AVG 79
GTX 1080 AVG 79
RTX 2060 AVG 80

Now factor in the fact that the Nvidias automatically boost, but that Vega 56 was stock, no undervolt.

Vega 56 is awesome, simples

With my Vega 56 (just a reference blower) at stock it's frequency would bounce around but after a undervolt it was nice and steady even during prolonged use

I don't think it'd catch a RX5700 though, but for £250 I think this Sapphire version is great value, better than the 1660ti which goes for same sort of price for sure. It is in a completely different class at the same sort of price right now. Hope you enjoy
what PSU you all using on this cards make and wattage ?

Corsair TX650M

The minimum recommended PSU is 650w, but some people get away with slightly less with high quality power supplies
Thanks all. As the box states on the card 750w and I have a 650w.

The vega 64 is even higher 850w. Seem a lot of power to run these.

Not to sure if mine would run it a Seasonic 650w X gold I think it was called had it about 10 years I think. Would that be ok. ? But thinking of upgrading everything now anyway.

Was thinking of a Seasonic 750w gold or platinum but was not to sure

Not sure why it's 750w, Vega 56 reference is 650w, maybe they are being cautious!

You can run these cards comfortably at stock frequencies with a substantial undervolt, along with a HBM OC (actually benefits performance more than GPU core OC on Vega). I'm running my 64 Nitro+ on a 650W PSU with no issue. Some headroom on your PSU is still advised, however, as Vega's are known to exhibit occasional voltage spikes. Unsure if that's still the case when undervolted.

I honestly think your psu will be fine. AMD overestimate to allow for poor quality PSU's ..yours isn't poor. I've a old XFX 450watt unit (Seasonic rebrand same age as yours) watt psu in one of my Towers and its run a overclocked Ryzen 3 and overclocked RX480 comfortably. AMD advised a 500 watt unit for RX 480. I'm planning using a Gigabyte 650watt unit with my Vega 56

As stated earlier, the RTX 2060 and Vega 56 are approx the same performance, with a slight edge to the 2060. In a few particular games it'll swing wildly from one to the other, for example Battlefield will be much better on the Vega, and Fortnite will be much better on the RTX2060.

Having said that, if you can get a RTX 2060 for similar money id go for that simply based on power draw and heat, but if the price gap is larger then Vega 56 is a no brainer.

If you don't mind second hand you could look for a 1070ti, 1080, the RTX features aren't really necessary at the minute.

Used: eBay (bit of a gamble) CEX (bit more £ but 1 year warranty)

New: Scan, Novatech, Overclockers, Ebuyer etc etc, but Amazon is best if the same price as you don't have the potential RMA pain, I love Amazon for this reason above all others

The differences between them are the Air boost has a blower cooler where the pulse has duel fan coolers which tend to be quite a bit quieter and keep the card slightly cooler.

The pulse has a nano PCB where the air boost has a full size PCB .This would really only make a difference if fitting a waterblock or other aftermarket cooler as they will not fit on a nano PCB.

Did anyone recieve their card yet? Mine has been clearly opened before and I am wondering if your ones came sealed?
I am worried someone has plugged it in to check if it has a Samsung memory and returned it...
