AMD’s Radeon Vega Frontier Edition’s Compubench Scores are leaked out on Videocardz.com and shows the graphic card reached at the end of its development phase and currently clocked at 1600MHz clock rate. The RX Vega FE graphics card has already been shown off by AMD, and it is going to be the reference edition of upcoming Vega family.
While this leak is legitimate, please keep in mind that the Compubench is appalling and an indicator of relative performance since it is prone to severe driver compatibility issues. The fact at the scores shown over the Vega FE is they are lower than that of R9 Fury X graphics card. Basic maths tells us Clock Rate * 2 Core Count the card will be clocked at 1600MHz. The RX Vega FE will be able to output peak performance of roughly 13.1 TFLOPs and at this clock speeds all while staying within 250W which is pretty impressive.
As you can see, the 687F: C1 variant clocked at 1200 MHz obliterates the apparently higher clocked RX Vega Frontier Edition. That makes it very likely that we are looking at a colossal miss-read by Compubench due to some driver related issue. I found the 687F: C1 variant in 3DMark databases recently and was able to get a few hits from last month. Apparently, someone has been testing the 1200MHz prototype with AMD Ryzen 7 processors. Here are the benchmarks of this same prototype just for fun.
As we can see the low clocked Vega prototype manages to hold its own against the AMD Fury X series and while it does not represent the final performance of Vega Frontier Edition, it serves as a good reference point to get an idea from (only raise performance by roughly 30%). To sum it all up, today’s leak reveals that FE will be clocked at 1600 MHz, and will have computed performance of 13.1 TFLOPs.
