Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the most powerful gaming GPU since its launch in September 2018 so far. Recently, however, an entirely mysterious AMD GPU beat the RTX 2080 Ti on the OpenVR performance benchmarking chart.
AMD’s mysterious Radeon GPU reaches a frame rate of 103.3fps, while the average RTX 2080 Ti reaches 80fps in the same test. Makes AMD’s GPU the most powerful gaming graphics processor, 30% higher than the competition.
This could be the new high-end Navi GPU, which AMD is preparing to launch this year. After AMD launched the RX 5700 graphics card in July 2019, there were also rumors about a VGA dubbed “Nvidia Killer” coming soon. Unfortunately, at the CES 2020 event, AMD did not disclose any information about this next generation GPU.
However, there are many confusing things around the testing and results of OpenVR. The first is VideoCardz’s discovery of this mysterious GPU testing device using the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor, which is the laptop processor that AMD just launched at CES 2020. It’s hard to understand when a GPU Such powerful detachments are tested again with a mobile processor.
There is even speculation that this GPU is a powerful new graphics processor from Nvidia and not AMD. Just because it was used on AMD’s 4800H board, it was inferred to be an AMD GPU. In fact, we have no idea what the actual name of this GPU is.
According to the performance benchmark of OpenVR (a fairly new performance measurement software based on VR applications), this mysterious GPU is up to 17% stronger than the highest overclocked RTX 2080 Ti, and more powerful than the standard RTX 2080 Ti 30 %. That’s something we have never seen on an AMD VGA.
Either AMD has actually delivered a big blow to Nvidia, either the test results are problematic, or this is not AMD’s GPU. Anyway, we cannot answer these questions right now. But there is a hope that the red team will once again defeat the “blue team”.
