Synthetic Benchmarks

As always I like to run through a few synthetic benchmarks to help directly compare the difference between cards before taking a look at in game performance. Before that, though I should touch again on the clock speeds of the Strix RX 570 and the XFX RX 570 RS that I already covered. The Strix has a fairly significant clock speed advantage over the XFX card, it’s out of the box clock speed is 1300 MHz where the XFX card was clocked at 1264 MHz. That should translate to better performance, but to find out for sure I tested using 3DMark. I used the Fire Strike benchmark at 1080p, 1440p, and 4k resolutions and then I used the newer Time Spy benchmark to check out DX12 performance. In all four tests the Strix card was noticeably faster than the XFX RX 570 and this was also enough to push us up surprisingly close to the RX 480 4GB reference numbers as well. In the case of the 1080p performance setting it came up near the GTX 1060 Founders Edition card.





In the two Unigine benchmarks, the results were similar, the extra clock speed put us back over the fastest RX 470, well above the XFX 570, and up near the RX 480 except in the 8K Superposition test, but that one doesn’t matter much 8K is still a long way out.



In Catzilla I tested again at 1080p, 1440p, and 4k but I was mostly focused on the 1080p results as they are the most relevant for this card. The Strix RX 570 came in about 100 points behind the RX 480 4GB reference design.
