A game benchmark of the upcoming NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super has leaked online and the card seems to have scored lower about 15% lower than an AMD Radeon 'Navi' RX 5700 XT. The details of the game are not known and this is only one score we have at the moment so we'd advise to take it with a pinch of the proverbial salt.

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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
