AMD Vega Time Spy Benchmark Leaked?
Ashley Allen / 2 months ago
A new AMD graphics card range featuring the company’s Vega GPU architecture is expected to launch before the end of June this year, and we may now have our first glimpse at the chip’s benchmark. A score that seems to be for an unnamed Vega card – running on a system powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor – has popped up on Futuremark’s benchmark database, recorded via Time Spy.
Graphics Card: Generic VGA
Vendor: Advanced Micro Devices Inc.
# of cards: 1
SLI / CrossFire: Off
Memory: 8,192 MB
Core clock: 1,200 MHz
Memory bus clock: 700 MHz
Driver version: 22.19.384.20
Driver status: Not FM Approved
Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
Reported stock core clock: 3,600 MHz
Maximum turbo core clock: 3,692 MHz
Physical / logical processors: 1 / 16
# of cores: 8
Manufacturing process: 14 nm
TDP: 95 W
Operating system: 64-bit Windows 10 (10.0.15063)
Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. PRIME X370-PRO
Memory: 16,384 MB
Module 1: 8,192 MB Kingston DDR4 @ 2,128 MHz
Module 2: 8,192 MB Kingston DDR4 @ 2,128 MHz
Hard drive model: 500 GB ST500DM002-1BD142
The legitimacy of this benchmark score is questionable, given the 5950 point score – comparable to NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 – of this unnamed hardware, despite its 8GB VRAM and 1,200MHz clock.
Though the score does appear low – depending on which Vega card we’re looking at, of course – it could, if genuine, be representative of an engineering sample (without release-quality drivers) and not a retail version; should the results prove real, the final version that hits the market could boast a higher score.
Hopefully, we won’t have to wait a full two months before we find out.
