AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPU appears to be on par with NVIDIA’s RTX 4080 in Geekbench

@BenchLeaks has released performance leaks of AMD’s forthcoming Radeon RX 7900 XTX on Twitter, displaying OpenCL and Vulkan compute results in Geekbench 5. The RDNA3 GPU performed admirably in the Vulkan benchmark, matching the performance of Nvidia’s RTX 4080. The OpenCL numbers aren’t as promising, but Geekbench isn’t the best predictor of real-world gaming performance in general. Nonetheless, it supports AMD’s statements that the RX 7900 XTX will compete effectively with the Nvidia RTX 4080.

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX scored 179,579 points in Geekbench 5’s Vulkan benchmark and 228,647 points in OpenCL. This puts the RX 7900 XTX on par with the RTX 4080’s Vulkan score of 178,105 points, which is only 0.8% slower than the 7900 XTX. However, the 7900 XTX behind the RTX 4080 on the OpenCL benchmark, with the RTX 4080 scoring 264,482 points, which is 15.7% higher than the RX 7900 XTX.

The RX 7900 XTX results aren’t surprising, given that AMD’s current GPU architectures have rarely been able to compete with Nvidia’s counterparts in terms of raw computation, which is what OpenCL evaluates.

Gaming workloads, on the other side, have produced competitive results in earlier RX 6000-series models, and we’re seeing the same pattern here. The 7900 XTX’s Vulkan performance features are very appealing when compared to the RTX 4080. AMD has previously stated that the 7900 XTX was not designed to compete with Nvidia’s 4090, but rather with Nvidia’s runner-up RTX 4080 GPU. We don’t know if this was AMD’s intention all along, but the Geekbench 5 Vulkan numbers we’re seeing today clearly support that claim.

AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT will be available on December 13, which is only one week away. Stay tuned for more information.
