A couple of alleged AMD Navi graphics cards, specifically engineering samples, have been spotted on two different benchmarks. Unfortunately, nothing has been shared in regard to the Ashes of the Singularity test, but there are some details offered with the Navi GPU that popped up on 3DMark. The preliminary specifications have some AMD fans worried about Navi’s future in the graphics card market.

Tum Apisak has been sharing some details about AMD Navi engineering samples on Twitter. A carefully cropped screenshot from Ashes of the Singularity reveals practically nothing except a GPU codename: 7310:00. This particular graphics processor has already been named as Navi 10, and it appeared in a GFXBench test back in March (along with 66AF:F1).

A similarly labeled GPU with the codename 731F:C1 has more interesting information to offer. This is also believed to be an engineering sample of an AMD Navi GPU, which has been spotted on 3DMark. Memory is recorded at a total of 8,192 MB, the core clock is listed as 1,000 MHz, and the memory bus clock has been stated as 1,250 MHz. It’s been speculated that this mysterious AMD Navi 731F:C1 chip will come with fast GDDR6 memory.

The low core clock of just 1,000 MHz has some AMD fans worried that Navi won’t be able to perform as well as expected, especially against high-end rivals such as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-series and the GTX 1660 Ti. However, as has been pointed out, these are just engineering samples and it’s likely the clocks will be much higher by the time the Navi GPUs are actually launched.
