Now here is an interesting leak. Chinese website KKJ has leaked an image from what appears to be an official AMD press slides in which we see the red team pitting its new RX Vega GPU against NVIDIA’s Titan XP, and the results are quite surprising.
AMD benched DOOM in 4K on Ultra settings via its Vulkan API. And according to the graphs, the Radeon RX Vega GPU was 21% faster than NVIDIA’s Titan XP GPU.
As said, this benchmark was included in one of AMD’s press slides for which its embargo was lifted on May 8th.
AMD has already stated that the Radeon RX Vega will be launched during SIGGRAPH 2017, at the end of July.
It will be interesting to see whether the AMD Radeon RX Vega will be able to surpass NVIDIA’s Titan XP (and the GeForce GTX1080Ti) and in other games, or whether DOOM is just a very special case!
Our reader ‘Drew Duncan‘ informed us that this image is from a comment in WCCFTech’s April’s Fools article (we couldn’t find the image, however we do have to note that this slide is indeed old). PCGamesHardware, on the other hand, claims it’s a legit image. As such, we’re marking this story as a rumour.
