AMD is only a week away from releasing its Radeon VII with our sample not far away, the first benchmarks have leaked the evidence that resulted in 3DMark results with the 4K Fire Strike Ultra i Time Spy reference points that work with DX12. I have inserted the 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra into one of my reference graphics so you can see where the performance of Radeon VII will go down.
According to filtering parameters that Twitter user TUM_APISAK published from the 3DMark database, we can see that the Radeon VII was now merging with GeForce GTX 1080 Ti of NVIDIA 2 years and GeForce RTX 2080 newly created, but it loses both with TITAN Xp and GeForce RTX Graphics Cards 2080 Ti. This is just the 4K run of the Fire Strike Ultra based base in DX11, with different results in the DX12 execution of Time Spy.
Things become interesting in the Time Spy that has leaked the result as the new Radeon VII loses both the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 2080, which has only surpassed the results of Fire Strike Ultra filtrated. At this point of reference we have scores of:
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 64: 6765
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti: 9066
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080: 10620
- AMD Radeon VII: 8700
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 13230
The new AMD Radeon VII will launch on February 7 for $ 699, which will include the new Vega GPU 20 to 7nm and a huge 16GB of HBM2 with 1TB / sec of memory bandwidth. We will test on a day in 4K and 8K, so we can see how 1TB / sec of memory bandwidth is the legs.
