Don't shoot me but i have 2 Vega FE's here in my rig. However these drivers are terrible, and performance is lacking in gaming/benches. I can't get eyefinity working properly in many configurations. Rx Vega is around the corner so if your even considering Vega best to wait and see what happens.

I would have expected something along those lines since the RX 480 based Radeon Pro WX 7100 is getting 180FPS ; Radeon Pro WX 5100 (RX 470D based) gets ~ 160FPS.
It would be interesting to test FP16 performance.
If you're running 2 WUs at a time on Einstein then the result is semi-respectable (looks to be 1.5Million a day? which would be better than 2 x RX 480 putting out ~ 1.3M/day).
Milkyway likely isn't worth it since VEGA doesn't have impressive FP64 performance.
The gaming variant has a high bar of performance to meet (greater than 2 x RX 470 or 2 x RX480).
I was comparing directly with PCPERhttps://www.pcper.com/image/view/83382?return=node%2F68037
my bone stock gpu results:
i get anywhere from 242-251fps.
Is it down to CPU clocks maybe? i think his 5960x was stock, mine is 4.5ghz
