1.5 times slower than GeForce RTX 3080, but all is not lost


The Ashes of The Singularity Benchmark Database is a regular source of performance information for upcoming graphics cards. This time, it contained entries related to a certain video card of the Radeon RX 6000 series. From it we can conclude that the pre-flagship version of Big Navi will offer performance at the level of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

In the Ashes of The Singularity gaming benchmark database, several interesting entries were found with performance indicators for a certain unnamed AMD Radeon graphics card, which many network sources considered to be the results of tests of the expected Big Navi accelerator. This point of view really has a right to exist, since the result shown by the mysterious video card is better than that of all existing AMD products.

Thus, one of the representatives of the promising Radeon RX 6000 series already exists in reality, and thanks to the new RDNA2 architecture, it is able to offer noticeably better performance than today’s conditional flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT provides.

Unfortunately, it is still impossible to say to which specific modification of the Radeon RX 6000 the results are related. Obviously, AMD is preparing several cards of this family at once, at least these are accelerators with codenames Navi21 and Navi22. The first of them is supposed to become the flagship solution in the Radeon RX 6000 series, while the second will take the place of a more affordable and massive offer. It is believed that both Navi21 and Navi22 will perform better than the Radeon RX 5700 XT offers.

The upcoming AMD graphics card, which was tested in Ashes of The Singularity, scores from 5900 to 6200 points on a system with a Core i9-9900K processor at maximum quality settings in DirectX 11 and at 4K resolution. This is about 20-25% higher than the performance of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and is generally close to the performance of the overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

A more detailed analysis was carried out by the user _rogame, which compared the performance of the alleged Radeon RX 6000 with other graphics cards based on NVIDIA chips.

The result of the future Radeon RX 6000 seems pretty good, but you need to keep two things in mind. Firstly, earlier in the same benchmark, the result of testing a GeForce RTX 3080 was found (albeit with a more powerful Core i9-10900K processor), and the new NVIDIA video card was able to score one and a half times more – 9600 points. Secondly, Ashes of The Singularity generally treats AMD graphics cards a little more favorably. For example, the Radeon RX 5700 XT outperforms the GeForce RTX 2080 Super in this test, which is somewhat at odds with the situation observed in most games.

But nevertheless, if the tested version of Radeon RX 6000 is not an older version of Big Navi, but only Navi22, then the benchmark results should be assessed positively. For such a card, the performance level of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is not a bad achievement, which means there is a possibility that AMD will be able to give a confident answer to the release of NVIDIA Ampere.

Unconfirmed rumors circulating on the Web suggest that the older Navi21 card will compete with the GeForce RTX 3080, while the Navi22 is expected to perform at the level of the GeForce RTX 3070. The announcement of AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics accelerators, built on the new RDNA2 architecture, is scheduled for October 28.
