APISAK has spotted a new benchmark result of Radeon RX 6700 XT on the Geekbench website. Under this benchmark, not only the usual CPU benchmarks can be performed, but one can also measure GPU benchmarks on three different APIs: CUDA, Vulkan, and OpenCL.
An AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU operating at a clock speed of 4.3 GHz was used to perform the tests. It was paired with 32 gigs of RAM.
As far as the benchmarks are concerned, the RX 6700 XT proved to be the slowest among all the current-gen (RDNA2 and Ampere) graphics cards when it comes to Vulkan performance. It was even slower than NVIDIA’s RTX 3060.
As for the OpenCL performance, it managed to outperform the RTX 3060 but stayed behind the RTX 3060 Ti with at least a 14% performance difference.
For those who don’t know about RX 6700 XT, it is an upcoming new upper mid-range graphics card that will compete against NVIDIA RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti in 1440p gaming. It will have 12GB GDDR6 RAM and 2560 Stream Processors.
As per AMD, it will retail at 479 USD and will hit the markets on 18th March.
