Mystery Radeon engineering sample appears on OpenVR benchmark to best Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti

Over on OpenVR's benchmarking leaderboard, a mystery Radeon graphics card has appeared to do battle with Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti, delivering a benchmark result that's 17.3% higher than Nvidia's RTX series graphics cards when using the same HTC Vive series headset. This benchmark result was spotted by Reddit user muchcharles.

The question surrounding this result is what AMD's test hardware could be, with Videocardz noting that the CPU used in this test could be AMD's Ryzen 4800H mobile processor. This suggests that AMD's test graphics card could be GPU within an external Thunderbolt GPU enclosure or some other form of test hardware. 

Another question to ask is whether or not this test system is using a single or dual-GPU setup, as a single-GPU setup would make this graphics card look like AMD's long-rumoured big Navi graphics card while a crossfire system could be using existing components if multi-GPU systems scale well within this benchmark. We have no experience with the OpenVR benchmark, so we have no idea how well it supports multi-GPU systems.  
AMD's CES Lisa Su has said that the company has "a high-end Navi" graphics card in the works, stating that PC gamers can expect AMD's future graphics cards to "have raytracing" sometime in 2020.

I still reckon we will see a 5800 and a 5900 seriesQuote

We will see bigger Navi cards but i can say with absolute certainty that they will not have a single card beat a single 2080ti.

Match a 2080 Super at best. Though probably still behind power consumption.Quote

Well since amd are referring to one internal card as nvidia killer I'd at least expect it to be on par with a 2080 ti but I'm waiting for both company's to show their cards so I know what my next upgrade is but first comes the saving process Quote

I'm not sure this is really it, but matching an RTX2080Ti would be quite easy for AMD now, as demonstrated by the fact these results are more or less exactly what you'd expect from a 64CU, 384-bit Navi card.

An RTX2080Ti is 30-40% faster than a 5700XT on average.
If you made a 64CU version of the 5700XT that's 60% more cores.
If you gave it 16Gbps chips and a 384-bit bus width (Same as RTX2080Ti) that's 70% more theoretical bandwidth than 5700XT.

So even counting for practical losses and lower clock speeds a 50% gain over the 5700XT is pretty doable. Die size should be around an RTX2070 in that scenario, which is still a good chunk larger than a Radeon VII but not exactly out of this world.Quote

I would be content with RTX 2080 Super performance for £425/500 € and 25 % discount on existing RX 5000 series, just like the strategy they took with AMD Ryzen. Anything better than that would be great.Quote
