Online Leak of Early AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Tests
On Geekbench, the new AMD RX 7900 XTX was recently put through its paces. It’s possible that the absence of official drivers is what’s holding back these particular results.
The RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX graphics cards, both of which are based on AMD RDNA 3, are extremely popular among gamers who are searching for a low-cost high-performance graphics card that is less than $1,000. Even though there is still more than a week until the official introduction of video cards, we are starting to see the leakage of some early tests of video cards, as noted by @benchleaks on Twitter. These early tests were discovered by @benchleaks.
Early tests of AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT
The Geekbench 5 OpenCL score and the Vulkan score were both determined using the RX 7900 XT after it was put through its paces in both of these tests.
The test system is an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X with 32 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). However, their results are significantly worse than what we had anticipated.
In the Geekbench 5 OpenCL test, we can observe that the card only earned 150,372 points, which is significantly lower than the score achieved by the RTX 4080, which was close to 250,000.
It only managed a score of 91,652 points on the Vulkan RX 7900 XT test. This is a considerable drop when compared to the comparative performance of the RTX 4080, which was approximately 149,000.
Maximum clock frequency
According to the most recent specifications, the card is only capable of reaching a core clock frequency of approximately 2270 MHz, which is significantly lower than the top GPU frequency of approximately 2500 MHz. Therefore, you should anticipate that these results will also include some room for further improvement.
Don’t take these early tests to heart
The RX 7900 XT is particularly sluggish when compared to Nvidia’s RTX 40 line of graphics cards. However, we have a sneaking suspicion that they are not making use of the official drivers for the graphics card at this time. When the drivers are taken out of the equation, it is possible that these test results will shoot up to a level that is acceptable. Those of you who are holding out for new GPUs should thus not be concerned about the particular numbers presented here. It is too soon to say how quickly these cards will be able to operate.
Keep a close eye on our review because it’s likely that we’ll see additional tests as we get closer to the introduction of the GPU.
