I had a little fun over the weekend seeing which AIB offered the strongest Vega 64 card. I wanted to show "real time" benches and had quite a few graphs, so I put everything in a youtube video. Enjoy!
It is a very strong card. Sapphire's way of handling Vega's GPU boost looks superior.Nitro looks very good
Grats on picking up one of the LC cards! They are hard to come by!Please add Vega64 XTX LC (i will have one in Friday )
Undervolting is the only way I could get the Strix to hold core overclocks. Making core clock speed adjustments on stock voltage would result in the core speed decreasing. With a 100mv undervolt, the card would maintain a boost clock between 1550-1590mhz. No other card requires undervolting, so I did not undervolt the Strix during these benches to keep testing consistent across all four cards.Also add undervolt results. I am eyeing the STRIX and would like to know what happens when you bring the voltage down to 1V~ under load.
The Nitro used in the video is the "SR" which is the non LE model. I haven't been able to find the LE model anywhere in several months. The SR model also has 2 x 8 pin connectors vs the LE's 3 as well as no RGB lighting around the two outside fans.Good job!
Just need some clarifications, which nitro did you use, ordinary or limited edition? Because apparently ordinary (the later version) doesn't have vapor chamber goodies...
It's surprising that powercolor is soooo close to sapphire, and asus is so bad! But my old predictions weren't so far from your new lab research
I'm waiting for my sapphire's 64 liquid cooled, and then i shall see what two nf-a12x25s will do, and then completely ditch the water cooling and will craft morpheus + alphacool nexXxos gpx abbomination
thanks to better cooling, apparently even without LE's vapor chamber cooler.It is a very strong card. Sapphire's way of handling Vega's GPU boost looks superior.
yep, they are. It took nearly 2 months untill I accidently spotted one for sale on amazon, just before leaving for work, I was like: wait, what?! hit refresh button on the web browser and there, it's real, i wasn't blind in that morning after all, INSTA ORDERGrats on picking up one of the LC cards!

RGB is for noobs, nitro+ LE has the best air cooler (until my planned morpheus + nexxxos gpx combo). We probably woun't see nitro+ LE for sale anymore. It was the first sapphire's vega 64 custom air cooled design, few months later they released nitro+ without LE, without vapor chamber tech, without 3rd power slot and with weaker clocks.The Nitro used in the video is the "SR" which is the non LE model.

Newegg US just put up more Nitro SR stock for $569.99 this afternoon.There is Vega 64 Nitro on sale on Newegg Canada and it is tempting to buy it ;S. After conversion its around 560 USD and I have been waiting so long to upgrade. Ima have to bite and hope Sapphire doesn't fail me now . Really wished they would let people replace the TIM, but with the Right to Repair being forced through I think I am fine.
They do have an awesome cooler, even without the Vapor chamber on this model. However even when temps were similar between cards, the Nitro was constantly boosting further and more importantly, maintaining a higher boost clock throughout the run. The Devil also did a good job, just not with as high "out of the box" boost frequencies.thanks to better cooling, apparently even without LE's vapor chamber cooler.
Thanks for sharing!
Not sure i follow.. why buy the Morpheus at all then?
With the exception of built in benchmarks, I started the recording after I let the card warm up for a few minutes.Recently got the Asus strix. Clocks are certainly about in line with what your bench shows. I'm seeing them dip under 1400, 1300 after extended load periods despite ok temps. Are your in game recordings started right after you start the games? Any idea why the clocks are so different on the Asus card vs the others. I have yet to see 1600mhz core even when temps are under 70c. Also is there any way to check what P state the card is in so I can be sure I am not stuck on a lower P state?
