Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 XT NITRO+ gets tested

First 3DMark figures for the upcoming custom graphics card based on Navi 22 GPU.

On the same day, we revealed the design of the RX 6700 XT NITRO+, some people in the far east have already shared performance figures of the card in question. Although the leaker has not shared any photos of the actual graphics card (so we can’t really verify if the card is really in his possession), he did share 3DMark scores that can help us understand how fast is the new RX 6700 XT by Sapphire

For comparison, we are using data by Wccftech review, whose test system is equipped with AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU, the same CPU that was used by the Bilibili leaker. The review actually covers the RX 6800 XT NITRO+ which is a great opportunity to see how much faster both custom designs are.

On average, it appears that RX 6800 XT NITRO+ is 52% faster than RX 6700 XT NITRO+. What may be interesting is that RX 6800 XT has 80% more cores than RX 6700 XT (4608 vs 2560), but the performance gap is smaller thanks to higher clocks on Navi 22 SKU (unfortunately in this case we don’t know the exact clock speed for RX 6700 XT NITRO).

This leak actually has an interesting tidbit. The Chinese synthetic test called Ludashi, reports that Navi 22 based card (RX 6700 XT NITRO+) is actually Nashira Summit. This would indicate that Nashira Point, Summit, and Creek are simply alternative names for Navi 2X GPUs. The rumors that Nashira might refer to next-gen Navi 3X are therefore debunked.

Overall, the leaker claims that RX 6700 XT will be better than RTX 3070 in DX11 benchmarks by around 5% but. It struggles to compete with the NVIDIA card in DX12 and raytracing-based benchmarks. The leaker has not provided any information on the graphics card itself. Thus it is unclear how much faster NITRO+ is compared to AMD reference design.

Many thanks to Alienxzy for the tip!
