First gaming benchmarks for the AMD NAVI GPUs, Radeon RX 5700XT & RX 5700, have been leaked online

The embargo for the third-party gaming benchmarks for AMD’s NAVI GPUs, the AMD Radeon RX 5700XT and the AMD Radeon RX 5700, will go live on July 7th and it appears that the first benchmarks have been leaked online.

These first benchmarks are from the Polish website Benchmark which accidentally published its article earlier yesterday. Now while the article has been taken down, the benchmark graphs have already been leaked online, thus giving us a small taste of how these upcoming GPUs perform against the new NVIDIA SUPER graphics cards.

As we can clearly see, the AMD Radeon RX 5700XT is unable to match the performance of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070 SUPER. NVIDIA’s latest SUPER GPU will replace the original RTX2070 model (at the very same price). The AMD Radeon RX 5700XT will be priced at $449 whereas the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070 SUPER is priced at $499.

Not only that, but the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070 SUPER is more future-proof than these first NAVI graphics cards. As we’ve already reported, both the AMD Radeon RX 5700XT and the AMD Radeon RX 5700 will not support real-time ray tracing; a feature that all of the RTX GPUs currently support. And since the next-gen consoles will do support Ray Tracing, we can safely say that owners of these specific NAVI GPUs may encounter visual degradation with all the next-generation games.

Obviously, we’ll have to wait for more gaming benchmarks however if these three benchies (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 5 and Wolfenstein 2) are any indication of how these new NAVI GPUs perform on a wide range of games, we can then safely assume that NVIDIA’s SUPER GPUs are better in every possible way.
