AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 vs NVIDIA Quadro T1000 Max-Q
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Radeon Pro Vega 20 and Quadro T1000 Max-Q compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated VRAM and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.
APIs supported, including particular versions of those APIs.
Non-gaming benchmark performance comparison. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good the compared graphics cards are for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in FPS.
Pro Vega 20 satisfies 96% minimum and 84% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
T1000 Max-Q satisfies 97% minimum and 86% recommended requirements of all games known to us.

Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20
Wider memory bus (1024 vs 128 bit)
More pipelines (1280 vs 768)
Higher memory bandwidth (189.4 vs 80 GB/s)
Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro T1000 Max-Q
8.9% better performance in benchmarks
Somewhat newer (27 May 2019 vs 15 November 2018)
Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 14 nm)
Lower power consumption (50W vs 100W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
So, which one is the better GPU?
Technical City couldn't decide between AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 and NVIDIA Quadro T1000 Max-Q. The differences in performance seem too small.
