Ryzen 2700X With 1080 Ti and VEGA 64 Gaming Performance

Ryzen 2700X Gaming Performance

The new Ryzen 2700X and 2600X are here at last. Of course, that means that today also marks the launch of the new AMD X470 chipset for motherboards! That’s a lot of products hitting the market in one day. We’ve already tested the new CPUs in their own reviews, and you can read the those on the links below. Of course, we’ve also tested motherboards from ASUS, Gigabyte, and ASRock, and those links are below too.

Second Generation Ryzen Reviews

  • ASUS ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming Motherboard Review
  • ASRock Taichi X470 Ultimate Motherboard Review
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor Review
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor Review
  • Ryzen First Generation CPU Retest

Over a year ago, I had the idea of testing the first generation Ryzen against Intel in a bit of a showdown of gaming performance. We later revisited that here, when a few updates changed the game for AMD. Now, here we are over a year later, doing something similar, but with a twist this time.

What Kind of Performance Can I Expect?

Before it was who was better, AMD or Intel, and in all honesty, I think there’s little to gain from pushing the same idea again as we know that AMD and Intel walk different paths when it comes to gaming CPUs these days. What I wanted to know is how well the new flagship Ryzen 7 2700X performs. Firstly, with the fastest AMD GPU on the market, the Vega 64, and secondly with the fastest Nvidia GPU on the market, the 1080 Ti. I am, of course, talking about consumer CPUs and GPUs, not the uber extreme cards that are like unicorn poop anyway.

Test Your Rig and Compare!

If you’re out to build a high-end 2700X rig this week, with an X470 motherboard, you’re likely looking at either of these cards to complete your system. I’m not out to sugar coat or say one is better than the other either, we already know the 1080 Ti is the faster GPU of the two. However, all of our benchmarks are readily accessible to anyone, so the idea is you can now go benchmark your own system to compare to our results and see what kind of performance increase you will see when you build your new Ryzen 2700X system. Got it? Cool, let’s go look at the numbers! Why not let us know what scores and frame rates you’re getting now in the comments section below!

    The Nvidia 1080 TI is clearly better. I am an ATI guy, but I think Nvidia’s recent price drop has pursueded me to go with Nvidia. If your card is just as expensive and it underperforms then it’s not a good value for customers.

      Recently the Vega 64 is same price as 1080 (not ti) in Australia both $849 for Asus strix. $1349 for Ti. Different markets may be vastly different but if I purchased today I would grab the 64 and save the $500 🙂

    The benchmarks certainly showed that the 1080 Ti overall performs better than Vega, especially in situations with older standards such as 1080p and DX11. The Vega 64 clearly has more future potential due to it´s better performance with DX12 and Vulkan as well as in higher resolutions.

    The Vega 64 is not able to reach the 1080 Ti but is was clearly not intended to primarily compete with the Ti, looking at the prices (in Germany over geizhals.de): Vega 64 -> 600€ to 635€; 1080 Ti -> 750€ to 950€. Instead is it compareable to the 1080 -> 520€ to 700€ (depending on the manufacturer and availability). Looking at the specs shows the same.
    Still Vega 64 is ADMs current flagship for gaming and therefore the comparison to NVIDIAs gaming flagship is fair and necessary to show the gap in performance in relation to the release dates.

    I personally would buy the Vega 64 again for my system (Ryzen 7 2700X | Aorus x470 Gaming 7 | G.Skill Trident 3200 CL14 | Acer XF270Hua 1440p 144hz): Mainly to get a future proof card for gaming and working equally, as well as my dislike for NVIDIAs company policies.
    The monopoly the green team held over the years almost killed the technological progress and fucked up the pricing for consumers, therefore it would only be logical to work against the monopoly by buying cards from the competitors for anyone who is interested in positive long term developments. As AMD and Intel already have shown with their increased competition in the CPU market leading to better and less expensive products with Ryzen series and the new i7s.
