We have been seeing a lot of leaks from Twitter users APISAK and Komachi recently, with today being no exception. Videocardz noticed some new posts which claim to show the performance of Radeon VII in Futuremark and the Final Fantasy 15 canned benchmark.
The results are very interesting, to say the least, with graphics performance numbers on theFire Strike Performance preset beating an overclocked RTX 2080's 26800 points as well as it's 6430 in Ultra. This result is very encouraging, assuming the mysterious GPU is indeed the Radeon VII we will soon be able to purchase.
As for the FFXV benchmark, we have seen odd results in the past, though the discrepancy between the performance is well worth noting.
In addition to the possible benchmarks is news about the third party cards which will eventually hit the shelves. It is unlikely we will see the ASRock model in North America, but the others should eventually appear.
