By the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark, the first AMD Radeon RX 6000 has been seen, and although it offers good performance, it has not generated any kind of hype or raised expectations of what we expect from ” Big Navi “, the company’s top-of-the-line GPU.
In this way, an unknown AMD Radeon RX 6000 was seen in a game optimized for AMD products that achieved a score equivalent to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Although it is not a bad performance, the problem is that we do not know if we are facing a GPU with the Navi22 silicon. If this were the case, the news would be that AMD has a GPU that equals the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and that it still has something more powerful hidden, but if this benchmark is really a Navi21 GPU, then we would be saying that Big Navi, the AMD’s top-of-the-range GPU will only be able to compete with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and will not have to do anything in the market unless it offers very aggressive prices.
As for the results, we have between 5,900 and 6,200 points at 4K resolution and with the graphics setting on “Crazy”. The DirectX 11 API was used in conjunction with the eight-core Core i9-9900K as the CPU. The average FPS is around 60. This is 20% more performance than a Radeon RX 5700 XT with generous overclocking and is on par with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which scores 6,100 points or 63 FPS. Overclocked, the RTX 2080 Ti hits 79 FPS (7800 points). This is 25% faster than the RX 6000.
Here is a summary of the results:
- MSI Gaming X Trio 2080 Ti 74.4 (156.63%)
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti water stock 71.4 (150.31%)
- EVGA XC Black 2080 Ti stock 64.9 (136.63%)
- AMD Radeon (TM) Graphics 63.9 (134.52%)
- MSI Gaming X Trio 2080 stock 54.4 (114.52%)
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 stock 47.5 (100%)
The results obtained with an RTX 3080 show an average 98 FPS with a score of 9,600 points, 55% faster than the Radeon RX 6000. AMD has to play the card of the Navi 21 and Navi 22, which would have to compete with the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 respectively. Thus, we would be facing results of a Navi 22.
The Navi 21 is the one that will be called the Big Navi, while the other GPUs will be standard RDNA 2 SKUs. What is clear is that RDNA 2 is designed for 4K gaming. And also for hardware-accelerated ray tracing using APIs such as Microsoft DXR 1.1 (DirectX 12 API Ultimate).
Considering that AMD will announce its GPUs at the end of next October, it is to be expected that these leaks will begin to intensify and help us to know where AMD will move in terms of performance.
