AMD’s Radeon VII Competes With Nvidia’s RTX 2080 In Leaked Benchmarks

The Radeon 7 is the flagship of AMD’s latest GPU range and recently leaked benchmarks suggest it is easily competing with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080

Benchmarks have appeared for AMD’s Radeon 7 graphics card which shows it competing very directly with Nvidia’s RTX 2080. While the authenticity of these benchmarks can’t quite be confirmed yet, it’s a pretty good indication of the level of performance we can expect when it finally launches.

The benchmarks can be found here on the 3DMark website and appear to have been uploaded prematurely. While the card on these benchmark results is displayed as “Graphics card is not recognised”, the card configuration and results suggest it’s AMD’s brand new Radeon flagship GPU.

The result in Fire Strike Extreme 1.1 for the suggested Radeon VII was a score of 12,224 when coupled with a Core i9-9900k processor. The same benchmark using a Ryzen 7 2700X scored 12,141, while the results in other tests were 6.707 in the Fire Strike Ultra 1.1 and 19,210 in Fire Strike 1.1.

This is fantastic news for consumers in general as the price of Nvidia’s recent 2000 series graphics cards is eye-watering. AMD has a solid reputation for providing excellent performance at a more reasonable price point, so if the Radeon VII does outperform the 2080 comfortably at a lower price – AMD could quickly take over the mid-high end GPU market.

Take a look at our opinion on the best graphics cards currently available.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Spinach, Asian Pear & Chicken Salad

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Synology DS419slim Review

The DS419slim fills a unique niche by being a NAS drive that exclusively accepts only 2.5in drives. A limitation that is perhaps more of a curse than a blessing. Find out why in our review.
Should I Buy The Synology DiskStation DS419slim?
On paper a NAS drive that uses 2.5in drives might seem interesting until you realise the limited sizes available for NAS use, and the cost of owning them.
Unless you really need a compact NAS drive, another model is likely to be a better choice.
