AMD Radeon VII releases on February 7th and while the red team released a few gaming benchmarks, some new benchmarks were leaked online yesterday. These new benchmarks are from 3DMark and Final Fantasy XV and we can see, perhaps for the first time, how AMD’s upcoming GPU fares against NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX2080.
In 3DMark, the AMD Raden VII is faster than the GeForce RTX2080. On the Ultra preset, a customcustom factory-overclocked RTX 2080 scores around 6430 and the AMD Radeon VII offers 6700 points. However, 3DMark is not a “game” and this may not interest a number of gamers. Still, it should give you an idea of how this GPU will perform in some games.
On the other hand, the AMD Radeon VII is noticeably slower than the GeForce RTX2080 in Final Fantasy XV’s benchmark. Again though, this benchmark tool has some issues and does not represent the in-game performance. There is also a chance that it could be favouring NVIDIA’s GPUs.
So, right now we have the AMD Radeon VII beating the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 in 3DMark and the latter beating the former in Final Fantasy XV benchmark.
I’m pretty sure that more gaming benchmarks will appear online in the next day prior to Radeon VII’s launch, so stay tuned for more.
Kudos to our reader Metal Messiah for bringing this to our attention.
