Synthetic Benchmarks

As always I like to start my testing with a few synthetic benchmarks. 3DMark especially is one of my favorites because it is very optimized in both Nvidia and AMD drivers. It's nice to not have to worry about it being favored too much either way and the repeatability of the results makes it a nice chance to compare from card to card, especially when comparing with the same GPU. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black is an overclocked card and I did just earlier take a look at the Sapphire RX 7700 XT Pulse which was clocked at AMDs stock clock speeds. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black is clocked at 105 MHz higher for its game clocks and 55 MHz higher on the boost clocks so it will be interesting to see how that changes performance. Beyond that of course I do want to keep an eye on how it compares to the RTX 4060 Ti, the RTX 3070, and RTX 3070 Ti from Nvidia and the 7800 XT and 6750 XT from last generation as well.

The first round of tests were done in the older Fire Strike benchmark which is a DX11 test. There are three detail levels, performance, extreme, and ultra. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black scored a 42314 in the base Fire Strike benchmark which was just 309 points ahead of the 7700 XT Pulse, that was enough to jump ahead of the 4070 Ventus but still behind the RTX 3080 and both cards are ahead of the 4070 FE as well as the 6750 XT, 4060 Ti, and 3070 Ti. The Fire Stike Extreme test has the QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black just ahead of the Pulse once again but behind the 4070 FE this time around and then for Fire Stike Ultra the QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black ended up a hair behind the Pulse but back in front of all of the RTX 4070s.




The next two were both based on the Time Spy benchmark. One is the standard test and then there is the extreme detail level. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black has a slightly bigger lead on the Pulse in the base Time Spy test with a score 171 points higher. This wasn’t enough to close the gap at all between the 7700 XT and the RTX 3080 or RTX 4070s which are above it but both cards are well ahead of eh RTX 3070 Ti. The Time Spy Extreme test on the other hand has the Pulse out in front of the QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black by 19 points, not enough to change anything. Both cards are in front of the RTX 3070 Ti and behind the RTX 4070 with big gaps in both directions.



For ray tracing performance, I ran both the 3DMark Port Royal test which is ray tracing focused as well as the new 3DMark Speed Way test which tests all future-looking features including ray tracing. In Speed Way, the QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black was right with the Pulse with just 19 more points on its score. That wasn’t enough to catch up to the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB which was ahead here. As a whole AMDs performance is a step behind on all of the cards in this test compared to Nvidia. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black was 47 points in front of the Pulse for the Port Royal benchmark and both cards were just a hair above the RTX 3070 Ti and behind the 6800 XT.



I wanted to check out the AMD FSR 2 performance and for that, I ran the test that 3Dmark has put together. I ran it at all four detail levels so we could see what kind of improvements are possible in performance when running it. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black ran at just 21.9 FPS with FSR 2 turned off but jumped up to 42.77 with the highest quality setting on. Balanced and Performance settings improved things up to 51.01 and 64.23. Then with the ultra-performance setting it jumped even farther up to 100.05 FPS. The QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black ended up being just behind the Pulse on all of these tests as well which is interesting.


The last test was using the Unigine-based Superposition benchmark and I tested at 1080p with the extreme detail setting as well as the 4K optimized setting. In the extreme detail setting the QICK 319 RX 7700 XT Black came in just behind the Pulse in both the 1080 Extreme and 4K tests and both cards we just ahead of the RTX 3070 and behind the RTX 3070 Ti.
