AMD releases Radeon 7 benchmarks for 25 games
After announcing the Radeon 7 a few days ago, AMD has stealth-released a more comprehensive set of benchmark results that show how the upcoming card performs in 25 recent games compared to the current top Team Red GPU, the RX Vega 64, benched at 4K resolution on maximum settings. The benchmarks were contained in footnotes to AMD’s press materials, and first came to light courtesy of HardOCP.
Broadly, the results bear out AMD’s claim of around a 25 per cent leap in performance from one generation to the next, although increases as low as 7.5 per cent in Hitman 2 and as high as 68.3 per cent in Fallout 76 are included in the results.
If we compare AMD’s provided results to our existing benchmarks, we can see that our Vega 64 scores for Ghost Recon Wildlands and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey are practically identical, suggesting that AMD’s definition of ‘4K Max’ is the same as ours in these titles. That means we can suggest how the Radeon 7 would compare against a wider range of cards in these titles, particularly as any differences in CPU performance are likely to be negligible when running these games at 4K and max settings (AMD benched using an i7 7700K, while we’ve moved on to the i7 8700K).
