    (RS-198) Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of November 8th, 2017 on the 8GB Radeon RX Vega 56, on a test system comprising of Intel i7 7700X CPU (4.2 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3000 Mhz system memory, and Windows 10 x64. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. With the highest preset on Battlefield 1 and Rocket League at 1920×1080, the Radeon RX Vega 56 scored 117.4 and 161.2 FPS, respectively, with Radeon Software 17.11.1. While recording, the Radeon RX Vega 56 scored 113.7 and 158.2 FPS, respectively, creating a 3.2% and 1.9% FPS overhead. Using Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition, the Radeon RX Vega 56 scored 116.65 and 160.2 FPS, respectively. While recording, the Radeon RX Vega 56 scored 114.16 and 159.1 FPS, respectively, creating a 2.1% and 0.7% FPS overhead. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RS-198
