Geekbench results show AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX is 15% faster than RTX 4080 in Vulkan

AMD’s first Radeon 7000 GPU has been put to the test in Geekbench tests. The tested graphics card is the RX 7900 XTX, the top model of the RDNA3 family and the only one with the full Navi 31 GPU.

The ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme motherboard featured an 8-core Ryzen 7 7700X CPU and an AMD RX 7900 XTX graphics card. Reviewers often use such methods, which is how these conclusions ended up in the public database.

The map has been tested with OpenCL and Vulkan APIs using Geekbench Compute. While the software is compatible with the Metal and CUDA APIs, AMD RX 7900 hardware on Windows does not support it.

However, the official Geekbench Compute charts have not been updated with the new SKUs. As a result, graphics cards such as the RTX 4090, RTX 4080 and even the RX 6950XT are not mentioned. This means that we must obtain data manually using a minimal set of criteria: the same application programming interface (API), the same operating system (OS), and excluding any outliers.

The RX 7900 XTX outperforms the RTX 4080 in Vulkan API (15%), but falls short in OpenCL (14%). However, it should be noted that the Geekbench program needs to provide more data to get usable results (lack of GPU clocks or driver information). Also, this is not a video game test.

Reviewers are expected to conduct further testing soon, so once known synthetic (3DMark/Superposition, etc.) and gaming benchmarks are published, we should have a better idea of ​​how the RX 7900 XTX compares.
