    Has for this image what I looking for is they anything not rendered on one vs the other.

    1. They both look wasted out
    2. They both suffer from Youtube compression
    3. AMD colours look different, Water is more blue on Nvidia, while water is more dirty looking on AMD.
    4. The sky looks better on AMD clear see clouds etc on Nvidia they missing??

    The 2-4 fps is basically every game I have tested. I dont have Prey installed at the moment. Its not a game changers.
    I think when you start going 1100+ is when you start seeing some worthy gains tbh

    edit
    Thanks for taking the time to test though.

    It is mostly the colour preset but there is a bit more detail in the AMD ones.

    Quickly skimmed through the thread and couldn't see it.

    Why is the CPU at only 4.0Ghz?

    Yeah, the Radeon image shows a lake full with mud. But this grey colour may come also from a possible clouds reflections in the water surface.

    Despite my wattman settings shown in the vids, it isn't my gaming profile I have a couple more refined profiles but I've only just upgraded to 19.1.1 so my usual overdriventool doesn't work properly.
    But I totally agree that 1100+ is a helper, though that in some cases it's not. I have both a reference V64 and an LC64 which are happy to run most games with a Hbm of 1100-1175, couple of games get artifacts at 1175.
    I lock my frtc to 74fps as my 1440p freesync monitor is only 75hz, In the less demanding games I play I like to run my lc64 at a held 1500mhz at 0.95v and the rad fan is practically inaudible and in the low 40c.

    I did think that too, not sure why it is though ?

    To introduce a bottleneck in the same way that ultra presets weren’t always used for graphics to increase the frame rates.

    This is of course the problem with end user benchmarks they either don’t know what they are doing or are deliberately trying to skew them one way or another. Meaningless Guff.

    The Vega 64 does very well so much so that I’m very tempted to get the Asus one and punt on my 56, but professional benchmarks show it some way off a 2070 let alone a 2080.

    At this long stage in Vega's lifetime and the fact you have a V56 I'd have to say it's not worth it unless it barely cost you anything. I'd stay away from the asus, whether it's the v2 or not. I'dIgo for the Powercolor or Sapphire or a ref v64 on s block

    Can you run the test again with the full color spectrum on the Nvidia turned on please?

    To be fair the 2080 will do another +1000 on the memory and probably over 2100mhz depending on a few factors.

    The V64 always was a fast card. I’m suprised it doesn’t get much attention especially when I’ve seen them under £400 on ocuk vs £7-800 for a 2080.

    Oh, I misunderstoodund then from I think a previous comment saying would run them again.

    Very curious what a Liquid edition Vega 64 would do against the Nvidia card.

    This proves how good the vega has become over time. The mining craze prices just killed it as a gaming card untill now with prices dropping back.
    However its still going to be a hard sell to most users now with the 2060 released and nvidia now supporting freesync. The vega64 or 2060 question i think is more important.

    I have a almost 3 year old 1080 and at current prices it looking like the best piece of hardware i ever brought . However would go vega 64 or vega 7 if my card died. I just cant stand what nvidia has done to price performance with turing.

    Overall I agree, mine does 1150 - 1180 hbm in games so I do use that, but if I couldn't get it to at least 1150 I would just leave it at 945 and focus on the core clocks.

    I've seen a few people state this over the years. It's interesting, has anybody done a video covering this?

    They really isn't anything in it tbh

    This all comes from Nvidia's own doing. They never used to support RGB full range and at that time AMD did. They was a clear difference and still is because nvidia default to limited range.

    So users are not wrong when they say amd looks better but that is carried over from the past and Nvidia's default settings.

    So by doing that, in essence Nvidia perform better?

    I wonder when nvidia will finally decide to send the appropriate colour signals to the monitors.
    Yeah, they can excuse that the a majority of the user base is ok with 16-235 RGB instead of 0-255 RGB but still leaves a not good taste in anyone's mouths given that this is a graphics company and top notch graphics should be their priority number one.

    I just changed the setting in nvcp and it’s now always set to 0-255.
