Unigine Heaven has the RX Vega 64 coming in a few frames shy of the GTX 1070.

With Unigine Superposition, the RX Vega 64 manages to come ahead of the GTX 1070.

During the benchmarking process, the Phoronix Test Suite was also monitoring each GPU's core operating temperature... While these numbers don't mean too much overall considering the many different coolers from the different AIB vendors, here is a look at the temperatures on the cards tested.

Lastly is a look at the overall AC system power consumption during all of the benchmarks carried out on each of the graphics cards. It will certainly be interesting to see where the RTX 2080 series fits in...

That's all for now and if you found these numbers useful for a current look at the Linux GPU performance landscape, consider showing your support by joining Phoronix Premium.
