In the ever-evolving world of gaming graphics cards, enthusiasts and gamers alike are always on the lookout for the next big thing. AMD’s Radeon RX 7700 XT, set to be released on September 6, has been generating a considerable buzz, and the latest leaked Time Spy benchmark score has left many excited about its potential.
AMD’s latest offering, the Radeon RX 7700 XT, is poised to become a formidable player in the graphics card arena, and it might even challenge the Radeon RX 6800. A recently leaked Time Spy benchmark score offers a tantalizing glimpse into the performance of this highly anticipated graphics card.
When AMD initially introduced the Radeon RX 7700 XT, they didn’t hold back in comparing it to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB. In their internal benchmarks, the Radeon RX 7700 XT demonstrated impressive prowess, outperforming the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB by up to 31% at native 1440p resolution with maximum settings. However, AMD’s choice to briefly compare it to the Radeon RX 5700 XT, a first-generation RDNA graphics card, left some scratching their heads.
One notable omission from AMD’s comparisons was the lack of a direct RDNA 2 comparison, which could have provided a more insightful perspective. Fortunately, the wait for answers won’t be long, as the Radeon RX 7700 XT is set to hit the market soon.
A hardware leaker, known as HXL, has shared a leaked Time Spy score for the Radeon RX 7700 XT, giving us a glimpse into its performance. While it’s crucial to remember that 3DMark Time Spy is a synthetic benchmark and may not perfectly reflect real-world performance, the results are nonetheless intriguing.
Under the hood, the Radeon RX 7700 XT will feature the Navi 32 silicon, employing TSMC’s N5 process node for the GCD (Graphics Complex Die) and the N6 process node for the MCDs (Memory Chiplet Dies). While the official die size for Navi 32 has not been confirmed, leaked information suggests it’s only marginally larger than the Navi 22 found in the Radeon RX 6700 XT and notably smaller than Nvidia’s AD103 used in the GeForce RTX 4080.
With the Radeon RX 7700 XT and Radeon RX 7800 XT scheduled to make their debut on September 6, priced at $499 and $449, respectively, the graphics card market is in for an exciting shake-up. AMD’s RDNA 3 portfolio appears to be reaching new heights, and the competition between AMD and Nvidia is fiercer than ever. As gamers eagerly await the official release and independent benchmarks, all eyes are on the Radeon RX 7700 XT to see if it can indeed deliver performance on par with the highly regarded Radeon RX 6800 XT.
