Out of nowhere the 3DMark TimeSpy Benchmark of AMD’s next Radeon RX Vega graphics card has popped up online. As reported by Guru3D that the 3DMark database has posted what appears to be early benchmark scores of the Radeon RX Vega GPU. Although the latest leak doesn’t directly mention the upcoming AMD GPU by name, but the specifications highlighted in the report match those of the RX Vega graphical processing unit and what it seems to be still work-in-progress rather than the finished product.
Time Spy Benchmark Shows Radeon RX Vega GPU Clocks At 1200 MHz and Attains 5721 Score
Benchmark score shows that the alleged RX Vega GPU only managed to clock up to 1200 MHz. This shows that it’s still not a finished article.
Note: The score shown in these benchmarks is not indicative of the final product by any means, as is clear from the massive clock speed difference as well as the fact that this could be a different die being incorrectly read as the 687F:C1. A cut down variant is also not out of the question.
If we take leaked benchmark scores to be true then this shows the GPU is ranging around 9.8 TFLOPS which is well below the performance level previously claimed by Raja Koduri. However, this leak shouldn’t be considered a final verdict, since a difference in clock speed can vary significantly on the final unit.
Leaked specs also mentioned the HBMs stack with 512 GB/s of bandwidth and what’s already been made clear by the RX Vega Doom demos that the unit comes with a vRAM of 8 GB. The GPU takes 225 Watts of power.
Since this benchmark is from Time Spy, graphics card scores of 5721 points at these clock rates are independent of any CPU related restrictions, which can be said is not a bad performance. Moreover, this benchmark score is more or less what you would expect from a GeForce GTX 1070 as well. But at its current level, the RX Vega is by now means a match to the superior GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti. The RX Vega chip is expected to ship with 8GB of HBM memory with 2048-bit bus width and 14mn FinFET node.
One final word, since AMD is being tipped to be working on multiple variants of next generations GPUs, so this leaked benchmark score could be one of the low-end unit. So we should take this benchmark as a final end-result. More news on upcoming AMD GPUs is to arrive in coming days, so stay tuned.
