AMD’s pre-Computex press conference is less than ten days away now, and as expected, data has started pouring in from various sources about the company’s upcoming CPUs and GPUs. Yesterday, we shared the SiSoft bench of a 32 core Zen 2 based Epyc processor and today we’ve got some info about two Navi parts. These leaks come from TUM_APISAK via Twitter who has posted details about two different variants based on the upcoming 7nm architecture.

The first one, a partial shot of the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark just reveals the device ID of the GPU, 7310:00. Other than that, we don’t really know anything else. The second leak, however, is more substantial and it consists of not just the specs but also a DX11 based benchmark. With a device ID, ‘731F: C1’ this seems to be a low-end product. The 3DMark listing mentions it having 8GB of VRAM clocked at 1,250MHz, indicating that it’ll probably feature GDDR5 memory and a core clock of 1GHz.

Next, we also have the GFXbench score of this Navi GPU, where its performance is rather tame. In the Manhattan test, it nets a measly score of 54.5FPS which is even slower than the 5 year old GeForce GTX 960 which is able to hit the 60FPS mark in the said test.

What does this mean? Will AMD’s Navi be a Low-End GPU

Well, to be honest, I can’t say for sure but that’s unlikely. This is because, in the low-end territory, the RX 570 is still the undisputed champion and releasing a few more cards in the same segment (based on a new architecture) doesn’t really make much sense. These benchmarks are probably quite old, of early testing samples and the production samples ought to have faster clocks and memory. The fact that the next-gen PlayStation console and the Xbox Scarlett will also leverage the Navi architecture gives us further reason to believe that it won’t be a low-end part. But just like always, it’s better to keep your ambitions in check, as AMD fans tend to get over-excited and then eventually have to face disappointment when the products don’t meet their expectations at release. We saw it happen with the 1st Gen Vega GPU architecture and then again with the 7nm Radeon VII graphics card which delivers worse performance compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 while having the same MSPR.
