According to the OpenVR benchmark database, there's an AMD Radeon GPU in the wild that is faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The engineering sample's name is 100-000000098-40_39/27_Y, which suggests it could be a variant of the Ryzen 7 4800U (that SKU's OPN is 100-000000098).

At this point in the time, the idea of an APU besting a full-sized, flagship card is hard to imagine, so there has been a lot of speculation as to what this mysterious part actually is. As suggested by VideoCardz, could it be "big" Navi or another unannounced Radeon GPU running in an external enclosure? What about a Radeon running in CrossFire?

The truth is probably a lot less exciting. AMD's official subreddit has done a little bit of investigating and uncovered some information suggesting that this is actually just an ASUS Zephyrus G with an AMD APU and NVIDIA GPU.
Hmm interesting to cram a 2080ti in a Zephyrus G. Probably gonna be a 3K laptop.
AMD denied anything on the short term horizon and referred me to Dr. Su's recent comments that ended up Reddit when I was meeting with them earlier today...
Just in time for 2080Ti Super or 3080

But the Reddit comment regarding the Zephyrus is more comical than anything I could make up
