AMD Radeon has just released an insanely powerful line of GPUs with massive 16GB GDDR6 memory across all its variants. Priced just over the Nvidia RTX 3070, the $579 Radeon RX 6800 gives almost twice the memory on its card with about the same performance. But the crown champions of the event were the Radeon RX 6800 XT and the RX 6900 XT with their insane price bracketing. Here is their comparison of the cards.
|AMD Radeon RX 6800||AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT||AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT|
|Process||TSMC 7nm||TSMC 7nm||TSMC 7nm|
|Game Clock||1815 MHz||2015 MHz||2015 MHz|
|Boost Clock||2105 MHz||2250 MHz||2250 MHz|
|Memory||16GB GDDR6||16GB GDDR6||16GB GDDR6|
|Price||USD 579||USD 649||USD 999|
Looks like in comparison the RX 6800 is here to compete with the RTX 3070 with slightly higher pricing, double the memory but similar performance so far in the current games.
But the RX 6800XT just destroys the RTX 3080 left and right at a lower price. In comparison to the GDDR6X RAM on the Nvidia RTX 3000 series, the higher capacity memory on the Radeon cards is GDDR6 across their 6800 and 6800 XT variants.
The RX 6900 XT is priced at an insanely wide gap of USD 500. Which will definitely push Nvidia to lower their pricing of the RTX 3090. Things just got extremely spicier.
And not only that. The cards will take up marginally less space in your case too. And less power too. Looks like AMD isn’t in mood to do anything wrong this time around both with their CPUs and GPUs launches. Go, Red team!
