More points and references of the Radeon RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX have appeared on the internet. Yet, recent experiments indicate that the Radeon GPUs are slower than the Nvidia equivalents. However, the upcoming graphics cards are much speedier than the last-generation RX 6950 XT. Also, the low price point of the RX 7000 series video cards makes them lucrative GPUs to opt for.

These references still need to change the truth that the Radeon RX 7900 series cards are unique GPUs. They are ranked among the quickest cars money can buy. Thus, gamers who buy them will not be unhappy, even though they’re not as fast as high-end Nvidia offerings. Radeon RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX references and how they fare against Nvidia match

Videocardz said the experiment leaked references for the GPUs. They arrive after the Geekbench 5 references in which the RX 7900 series cards were caught carrying the lead in some cases with respect to their Nvidia equivalents. The GPUs were just experimented with using 3DMark Time Spy and Fire Strike. These programs experiment with both the CPU and the graphics card considerably and emulate a real-life use-case scenario. The scores thus mostly depend on the whole system and not just the graphics card. Yet, no data on the experiment bench used to experiment with these cards are available.

3DMark Time Spy references scores

In Time Spy, 3DMark’s DirectX 12 references, we notice the RTX 4080 and the 4090 pull forward of the Radeon GPUs. While running the references in the 4K Extreme preset, the 7900 XTX scored 13,729 points, and the 7900 XT 13,687 points. This creates the former around 1% more slowly than the 4080, and the latter is around 2% after Nvidia’s top offering. The cards follow the RTX 4090 by around 28%.

While running the references at the 1440p Extreme preset, the distance between the two Radeon GPUs increases. The RX 7900 XTX scores 25,473 points while the 7900 XT reaches 23,987 points. This creates the former around 8% more slowly than the 4080, while the latter drops behind the same Nvidia GPU by around 12% more slowly.

GPU name                         4K Ultra preset score     1440p Extreme preset score

Geforce RTX 4090                     19,398                                 35,704

Geforce RTX 4080                     14,005                                 28,050

Radeon RX 7900 XTX                13,729                                 25,473

Radeon RX 7900 XT                  13,687                                 23,897

Radeon RX 6950 XT                  10,644                                 21,848

Geforce RTX 3090 Ti                 10,709                                 21,711

Thus, the Radeon RX 7900 series includes some drawbacks in Direct X12 performance.

3DMark Fire Strike references scores

In 3D Mark’s DirectX 11 experiment, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX scored 18,853 while running Fire Strike at the 4K Ultra preset. This makes the GPU around 24% more slowly than the RTX 4090 and around 7% quicker than the RTX 4080.

In the 1440p Extreme preset, the card achieved 37,702 points. Thus, it is around 18% quieter than the Team Green flagship and around 8% quicker than the RTX 4080, according to Videocardz’s performance totals. The RX 7900 XTX, yet, is much quicker than the last-gen equivalent, the RX 6950 XT, in this reference. It is about 15% quicker in the 4K Ultra preset and about 16% quicker in the 1440p Extreme preset.

The RX 7900 XT nearly equals the RTX 4080 in terms of general performance. The card scored 16,915 in the 4K Ultra preset, making it 1% more lagging than Nvidia’s most delinquent launch. A parallel story showed itself while running the references at 1440p Extreme. The card scored 33,497 points, earning it about 1% more slowly than the 4080.

GPU name                    4K Ultra preset score         1440p Extreme preset score

Geforce RTX 4090                29,427                                       45,704

Radeon RX 7900 XTX           18,853                                       37,702

Geforce RTX 4080                17,294                                       33,932

Radeon RX 7900 XT             16,915                                       33,497

Radeon RX 6950 XT             15,201                                       30,287

Geforce RTX 3090 Ti             13,989                                      26,704

Accordingly, the Radeon cards pile up fairly well in rasterization performance using legacy APIs.
