A Nashira Point GPU has been spotted in the Ashes Of The Singularity benchmark database. This isn’t the first time we see the term “Nashira” being used in the codename of an AMD GPU, but it’s not clear if it’s the same as the one found in the USB certification office or a new variant.
In the AMD Nashira Summit GPU entry spotted by @leakbench, the GPU was paired with a Ryzen 5 3600X without SMT enabled for the custom benchmark run. With this custom run, it’s hard to compare to other GPU entries using similar systems. However, the same user (dqa1c2) added another entry to the database with the processor’s SMT enabled, using the Medium_4K preset and the DirectX 12 API, which makes it easier for comparison purposes. In both benchmark runs, the system was using 32GB of RAM.

In the Medium_4K preset run, the system scored 7500 points. Comparing this score to an entry of a similar system using a Radeon 5600XT instead, the Nashira Summit system beats it by a small margin (7500 vs 7300).
Given its performance, this could well be an engineering sample of the Navi 22 or Navi 23 GPU. On the other hand, Chiphell leaker wjm47196 thinks it might be an RDNA 3 GPU featuring an MCM (multi-chip module) design because the benchmark detects two GPUs in the system.
KitGuru says: It is still early days, so it could be a while until we see AMD officially announce this new GPU. Whether or not it ends up being based on Navi 22 or Navi 23 remains to be seen.
