AMD Radeon RX 7800XT may be close to RX 6800XT in synthetic tests
According to the data shared by Kopite7kimi, AMD’s new Navi 32 graphics card is expected to show a minor upgrade over RX 6800XT in one particular test.
Yesterday, a leak circulated suggesting that the RX 7700 XT, a reduced version of the Navi 32 model, is projected to achieve a score of 17,000 points in the 3DMark Time Spy GPU test. This result was within the expected range, demonstrating an approximate 30% improvement over the currently available model from the RDNA2 series, namely the RX 6700 XT. It appears that we now also know where RX 7800 XT may land.
The source of this leak is Kopite7kimi, a reputable figure in hardware leaks and renowned for providing accurate insights into upcoming NVIDIA products. According to Kopite7kimi, the complete Navi 32 GPU configuration with 3840 cores is projected to achieve a score of 19,000 points in the same test. This outcome would signify a roughly 12% performance boost compared to the cut-down version, which features 3584 cores.

Of course, the RX 6800 XT is the logical choice for a preliminary comparison with the RX 7800 XT. Drawing from the aggregated data of numerous individual tests on the official 3DMark website, the RX 6800 XT boasts an average score of 19,277 points in the identical test. While Kopite7kimi refrained from disclosing the precise score of the RX 7800 XT, it’s clear that even if the score were to reach 19,999 points, the improvement would only amount to a modest 4%.

Certainly, relying on a single benchmark isn’t comprehensive. A more comprehensive understanding can be gained by examining the 3DMark TimeSpy Extreme preset at 4K resolution as well. However, the distinction in core count between the RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT is indicative of a similar variance. Notably, the former GPU doesn’t exhibit a significantly higher clock rate or total board power (TBP).
The impending launch of the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT is scheduled for September 6th. This particular model is slated to be priced at $499, aligning it closely with the cost of the RX 6800 XT, which is valued at $510 or more.
