Yea Geekbench doesn't make much sense as my Radeon VII can play Shadows of the Tomb Raider in [email protected] through TB1 with my early 2013 15" MBP

5700 XT on macOS dropped 25% in Geekbench without updating the app. The VII is being crippled so that it performs worse than slower GPUS. And then the Pro Vega II with the same chip is performing disproportionately much faster. One could easily suspect that Geekbench is manipulating the scores deliberately because they know they are a popular benchmark and can influence hardware purchases.

Every Mac user really needs to ignore Geekbench's suspicious possibly manipulated scores. They have been randomly shifting scores around for months. We should rely on every other benchmark except for Geekbench. Rob Art has tested the Radeon VII against the Pro Vega Series II. His result will be on Barefeats soon. Here is his preview...

This makes much more sense now. They are the same chip but the VII has a higher boost clock (correct me if I forgot).

Where can you buy the HL23T-PRO Thunderbolt™3 eGFX Enclosure in the US? I went to dynapowerusa.com, who Netstor says is their US retailer. Well dynapower then says I need to shop on one of 12 websites. Searching all 12 partner sites, the HL23T is nowhere to be found. 🙁

Hey Guys, MacOS 10.15.3 is out, which should improve Radeon VII a lot! Some say the “full fan speed on sleep”-issue might be solved. Do you have any improvements?

Bringing the thread back from the dead 😄

Is anyone using a Ghetto Mod on a Radeon VII in a Razer Core X?

Any experiences?

 

Thanks!
