DudeRandom84 has benchmarked two new games on the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. According to the results, and similarly to DOOM, the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition runs both Battlefield 1 and The Witcher 3 faster than the NVIDIA GTX1080.
DudeRandom84 run both games in 4K at max settings (he completely disabled the Hairworks effects in The Witcher 3 in order to offer an apple-to-apple comparison).
As we can see, in both titles, the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition was about 4-5 frames faster than the NVIDIA GTX1080. There were some scenes during which the NVIDIA GTX1080 was able to slightly surpass the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, however – and for the most part – AMD’s new workstation graphics card was faster.
Naturally, and as with DOOM, the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition was unable to come close to the GTX1080Ti. Moreover, the performance difference between these two cards was around 20-25%.
We’ve already said that the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is a graphics card that is not meant for gamers. Still, and since AMD has not revealed any benchmarks as of yet, this will give us a slight idea of what we can expect from the gaming variant of the Vega GPU.
AMD will release RX Vega at the end of this month, so stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
