AMD Radeon RX 6800: Release Date, Price, News, and Features
AMD Big Navi is just around the corner, which means we’re probably nearing the announcement of the Radeon RX 6800 XT, AMD’s upcoming flagship graphics card that AMD hopes will blast Nvidia’s RTX 3080 out of the water.

AMD has been catching up in the past few years after Nvidia introduced ray-tracing cores into its GPUs. However, this latest generation of Radeon graphics cards should bring AMD back on an even footing with Nvidia.

Big Navi, as the new AMD graphics architecture is affectionately known, will add ray tracing functions to the Radeon series. As Team Red’s first card to feature the new technology, Nvidia will likely still have the edge when it comes to ray tracing. However, some leaks suggest that the RX 6800 XT may outperform the RTX 3080 in games without ray tracing.

In a nutshell

  • What is it? The next AMD Radeon flagship graphics card
  • When is it out? Already in November
  • How much is it? Probably around $ 699 (£ 649, roughly AU $ 950)

Release date of the Radeon RX 6800 XT

While we don’t know when the Radeon RX 6800 XT will go on sale, we do know that the announcement of AMD’s Big Navi is scheduled for October 28th.

The RX 6800 XT is expected to be part of AMD’s first line of Big Navi cards so we won’t have to wait long. Given the typical time between announcements and retail launches, it is likely that the first RX 6000 series cards will hit stores sometime in November.

Radeon RX 6800 XT price

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is expected to compete directly with the GeForce RTX 3080, so it will almost certainly be priced in the same range.

Then the RX 6800 XT will likely retail for around $ 699 (£ 649, about AU $ 950).

Technical data of the Radeon RX 6800 XT

With launch day not quite here yet, we can’t say for sure what the Radeon RX 6800XT’s specs will ultimately look like, but some documents allegedly leaked about Newegg last month claim to show what AMD is under the hood.

This is what the Radeon RX 6800 XT supposedly packaged:

  • 3,840 stream processors
  • 12 GB GDDR6 memory
  • Maximum memory bandwidth of 385 Gbit / s
  • Base clock from 1,500 MHz to 2500 MHz
  • 200 W TDP
