Chopping corners: AMD claims that their upcoming Radeon RX 6000 sequence GPUs are, on common, quicker than their Nvidia counterparts, and so they’re keen to again that up with uncooked information… of their own. Which means AMD could also be portray the RX 6000 GPUs on their absolute best mild, selecting common video games which are seemingly already optimized at the driver degree, and benchmarking utilizing Ryzen 5000 sequence processors, that are stated to present them an additional enhance by enabling Good Entry Reminiscence.
In case you’ve been residing below a rock: the Radeon RX 6000 sequence is AMD’s response to Nvidia’s RTX 3000 graphics processors. Particularly, the RX 6900 XT ($999) targets the RTX 3090 ($1,500), the RX 6800 XT ($650) targets the RTX 3080 ($700), and the RX 6800 ($580) targets the RTX 3070 ($500).
Along with the benchmarks AMD confirmed throughout the playing cards’ launch, AMD has posted new more detailed benchmarks they ran in-house utilizing the following video games: Battlefield V, Borderlands 3, CoD: Trendy Warfare, The Division 2, Doom Everlasting, Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Resident Evil 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Wolfenstein Youngblood. Ten video games in complete operating at 1440p and 2160p at the highest high quality presets. They included the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 2080 Ti for comparability and all these outcomes are posted on AMD’s web site.
We’re attributable to testing Ryzen 5000 CPUs subsequent week, in addition to the new Radeons after they change into out there later in November and December. In the meantime, AMD’s check bench used the but unreleased Ryzen 9 5900X and 16 GB of 3200 MHz reminiscence. The processor’s distinctive Good Entry Reminiscence function was enabled, which reportedly boosts the system’s general efficiency by sharing assets between the processor and graphics card.

RTX 2080 Ti
Onto the information itself. These are daring claims from AMD, although as soon as once more, they’re utilizing a selected check bench that will favor their GPUs which can lack stability however that does not make the testing or outcomes inaccurate.
At 1440p, on common, the RX 6900 XT appears to beat the RTX 3090 by 7%. The RX 6800 XT is 9% quicker than the RTX 3080 and the RX 6800 outdoes the RTX 2080 Ti (an close to equal to the RTX 3070) by 19%.
In 4K benchmarks the margins tighten a little bit. The RX 6900 XT beats the RTX 3090 by 3%, the RX 6800 XT is solely 4% quicker than the RTX 3080 and the RX 6800 can handily beat the RTX 2080 Ti by 15%.
There are just a few different fascinating outcomes that the averages don’t reveal:
Though the RX 6900 XT is the quickest card on common, it solely beats the RTX 3090 in half the video games.
Forza Horizon 4 and Battlefield V favor AMD playing cards in a more overwhelming method. In each titles, at 1440p, AMD’s playing cards got here first, second, and third.
The one time the RTX 3080 was in a position to beat the RX 6900 XT was in The Division 2 at 4K.
The RTX 2080 Ti got here final in each benchmark. This GPU’s efficiency is near the new $500 RTX 3070.
Though conclusions can’t be correctly drawn till the evaluations are in, it appears to be like like selecting the finest graphics card will come all the way down to what video games you play and whether or not you place some worth on ray tracing (AMD has not stated a lot about ray traced efficiency), DLSS or options like Good Entry Reminiscence.
General, AMD’s Massive Navi GPUs look spectacular on paper and we are able to solely rejoice about having them compete hand at hand in opposition to Nvidia’s finest as soon as once more.
