Vague game benchmark shows the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT to be about 15% faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super
NVIDIA is all set to launch the RTX 20 Super series on July 2 followed by AMD's 7nm Radeon Navi RX 5700 launch on July 7. Benchmarks of both the series of cards have started popping up online implying there are already in hands of reviewers. Famed leakster TUM_APISAK has managed to unearth one such gaming benchmark comparing the RX 5700 XT and the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and it looks like AMD has an edge in this.
APISAK mentions that the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT scored 67 fps while the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super managed to score 59 fps. Now, this a very vague leak with no clue as to what the game is and what were the settings so we'd refrain from concluding anything. But the RX 5700 XT does seem to score about 15% more than the RTX 2060 Super.
According to TechPowerUp, the RTX 2060 Super based on the TU106 GPU will sport 2,160 CUDA Cores with a 1,470 MHz base and 1,650 MHz boost clock along with 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. The RX 5700 XT, on the other hand, has 1,605 MHz base and 1,755 MHz boost clocks. The ideal match for the RTX 2060 Super, therefore, would be the RX 5700 that has a 1,465 MHz base and 1,625 MHz boost.
As APISAK points out in his tweet, one test does not mean much but you could be potentially saving about US$20 if you go with the RX 5700 (US$379). However, if DLSS is what you are after, the RTX 2060 Super might still be a better choice after all.
