AMD Radeon 7800 XT emerges in Geekbench, probably hinting at imminent unveiling

One thing to look ahead to: As Crew Pink teases the rest of the RDNA3 lineup, analysts and clients are speculating about which fashions shall be launched first to compete towards Nvidia’s mid-range RTX 4000 collection playing cards, a few of which have but to reach. The looks of the Radeon RX 7800 XT on Geekbench would possibly supply a clue, even when it does not reveal a real indication of possible efficiency.

A Wednesday entry on Geekbench lists the as-yet-unannounced AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT in a Vulkan benchmark. The GPU’s rating is probably going removed from the efficiency of the fully-released card, however its emergence on the positioning means that Crew Pink might reveal it quickly.

AMD CEO Lisa Su not too long ago confirmed that “mainstream” Radeon RX 7000 graphics playing cards would hit the market this quarter, however didn’t specify which specific playing cards. Across the identical time, a now-deleted GitHub pull request listed 12 GPUs within the collection, each launched and unreleased, together with the 7800 XT.

Furthermore, earlier rumors counsel that the 7800 XT, 7700 XT, and 7600 XT will debut at Computex in late Could or early June. The extra inexpensive Radeon RX 7600 is more likely to emerge first, as Navi 32 and 31 yield points might delay the discharge of the 7700 XT and 7800 XT. This example provides intrigue and anticipation to the 7800 XT’s presence on Geekbench.

The cardboard scored 113,819 in a Vulkan check whereas paired with a 6GHz Ryzen 9 7950X and 58GB of system RAM working Debian Linux. The rating is much like listings for the RTX 3070 or RX 6700 XT and far decrease than the cardboard’s possible real-world efficiency.

The system is probably going an early inner AMD engineering pattern. With the 7800 XT in all probability nonetheless weeks from launch, the drivers are nowhere close to prepared, and energy constraints might also be engaged.

Geekbench does not reveal something in regards to the GPU’s specs, however earlier info suggests it is going to use the total Navi 32 die, giving it 60 compute items (7,680 shader items). It is also anticipated to function 64MB of Infinity Cache throughout 4 reminiscence dies and 16GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6 VRAM with a 250-to-285-watt TBP. The 7800 XT would possible compete with the RTX 4070 Ti.

Whichever new RDNA 3 GPUs Crew Pink releases first and no matter their efficiency, they’re anticipated to invigorate the marketplace for new mainstream graphics playing cards, following clients’ lukewarm response to Crew Inexperienced’s RTX 4070. Nvidia might restrict that card’s provide resulting from gradual gross sales, and the RTX 4060 may not impress customers both.
