Technical specs

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.

Competitors of Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooling from NVIDIA

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooling from NVIDIA is GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooling:

Advantages of NVIDIA Tesla V100 PCIe

Wider memory bus (4096 vs 2048 bit)

More pipelines (5120 vs 4096)

Higher memory bandwidth (900.1 vs 483.8 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 14 nm)

Lower power consumption (250W vs 345W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

Advantages of AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooling

Somewhat newer (7 August 2017 vs 21 June 2017)

Cheaper ($246 vs $8059)
