It’s time Big navigationAMD has introduced their new Radeon graphics cards: the RX 6800 for $579, the RX 6800 XT for $649 and the RX 6900 XT for $999. AMD claims that these graphics cards should be able to match or beat Nvidia’s flagship RTX 30 series graphics cards, all the way to the $1499 RTX 3090, which is usually cheaper and consumes less power. The 6000 series cards are also the first desktop AMD GPUs to support real-time ray tracing, variable rate shadows and other DirectX 12 Ultimate features. All in all, this is an exciting package for AMD fans-and Nvidia users who may be frustrated by the poor availability of the RTX 30 series.
The performance here is what most people want, so let̵
At the same time, RX 6800 looks to be competing with RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 3070. AMD’s marketing materials show that the 6800 fully beats the 2080 Ti at 4K and 1440p, usually competing by 10% or higher, although the slide points out that this is a feature that enables smart memory access, which requires Ryzen 5000 processing Device (more on that later).
The situation of the flagship product RX 6900 XT is similar. Although the price is 500 US dollars cheaper, it can still match or beat the RTX 3090 at a pretty good price-but again, this is a card that enables smart access to memory and overclocking, so it It will be interesting to see how these cards compare in stock speed and when using Intel processors.
|RX 6000 specifications||CU||Boost clock||Virtual RAM||Unlimited cache||Technology Development Plan||price|
|RX 6900 XT||80||2250 MHz||16GB GDDR6||128MB||300 watts||$999|
|RX 6800 XT||72||2250 MHz||16GB GDDR6||128MB||300 watts||$649|
|RX 6800||60||2105 MHz||16GB GDDR6||128MB||250 watts||$ 579|
Let’s take a look at the specifications starting from the RX 6800 XT. The card uses 72 CUs (computing units), 2250MHz enhanced clock, 128MB infinite cache and 16GB of GDDR6 memory. 6800XT can also perform power management with lower power consumption (300W and 320W) than RTX 3080. At the same time, the RX 6800 has 60 CUs and a 2105MHz boost clock, but has the same infinite buffer and VRAM distribution. Its TDP is 250W. RX 6900 XT was a timely “one thing” at the end of the show. It is a fully functional 80 CU version of RX 6800 XT, with the same clock speed, memory configuration and 300W TDP.
