RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER edged out by AMD Radeon RX 5700 in OpenCL
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 SUPER series is nearly upon us, but AMD already appears to have the edge in certain benchmarks. The ever consistent @TUM_APISAK has shared three Geekbench listings, which offer an insight into the OpenCL performance of the RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER compared with the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 5700.
According to Geekbench, all three GPUs were tested in an ASUS ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX motherboard with an Intel Core i9-7960X CPU and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. Speculatively, someone has been comparing the new RTX 20 SUPER and Radeon RX GPUs. The listings confirm that all three GPUs will have 8 GB of VRAM, with the boost clock speeds of the RTX 2060 SUPER and RX 5700 separated by only 20 MHz. By contrast, the RTX 2070 SUPER clocked up to 1.77 GHz during the same benchmark. The latter also has 6 more compute units than the RTX 2060 SUPER at 40, while the RX 5700 has just 18.
The RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER outperform the RX 5700 in most OpenCL components. However, the latter smokes the other two in the Particle Physics benchmark, which explains why it edges the RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER overall. We will know what impact this up to 10% difference between the three has on gaming performance when we put the GPUs through their paces.
