The result in Fire Strike Extreme 1.1 for the suggested Radeon VII was a score of 12,224 when coupled with a Core i9-9900k processor. The same benchmark using a Ryzen 7 2700X scored 12,141, while the results in other tests were 6.707 in the Fire Strike Ultra 1.1 and 19,210 in Fire Strike 1.1.

This is fantastic news for consumers in general as the price of Nvidia’s recent 2000 series graphics cards is eye-watering. AMD has a solid reputation for providing excellent performance at a more reasonable price point, so if the Radeon VII does outperform the 2080 comfortably at a lower price – AMD could quickly take over the mid-high end GPU market.
