The new benchmarks posted on the AMD website come from 10 games and show performance at both 4K and 1440p, with full PC spec provided. The test bench was powered by a Ryzen 9 5900X processor (in an X570 motherboard) with 16 GB of DDR4-3200 system RAM.Note that AMD Smart Access Memory has been enabled, a technology that allows RX 6000 GPUs to work together with Ryzen 5000 CPUs for increased performance. So that’s a little added benefit over Nvidia that the folks who haven’t upgraded to Ryzen 5000 won’t have.
The benchmarks themselves are very impressive for AMD, especially at a resolution of 1440p, and of course the 4K resolution remains a niche proposition anyway (in fact, the vast majority are still playing at 1080p according to the Steam hardware survey).
At 1440p, the flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT beats Nvidia’s RTX 3090 in every game except two: Wolfenstein Youngblood, where the 3090 is champion, and Doom Eternal, which is pretty much a dead heat.
Interestingly, the 6800 XT even outperforms the RTX 3090 in Borderlands 3 – and in some ways – and the Vanilla RX 6800 is a match for the RTX 3080 in that game at 1440p.
The 6800 XT also owns the 3090 at Gears 5. And in Battlefield V, both the 6800 XT and Vanilla 6800 beat the RTX 3090, with Forza Horizon 4 (to an even greater extent) doing so too.
Also note that the RX 6800 easily outperformed Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Ti in all benchmarks (which AMD apparently used instead of an RTX 3070 for testing because the performance levels are about the same as we found in our test).
Keep in mind that the 6800 XT is $ 649, which is less than the RTX 3080, which is $ 699 – and of course the RTX 3090 is a staggering $ 1,499, with the RX 6900 XT undercutting $ 999 .
In the 4K benchmarks, the RX 6900 XT beat the RTX 3090 in five of the benchmarks, meaning Nvidia won the other five – it was practically a tie.
However, AMD’s RX 6800 XT beat the RTX 3080 in six benchmarks, with the Nvidia graphics card only winning in three cases – Shadow of the Tomb Raider was a tie. In fact, the RX 6800 XT has ousted the 3090 in Borderlands 3, Gears 5, and Forza Horizon 4 at 4K.
So, worrying stuff for Nvidia? It seems, although we have to keep in mind that these are AMD internal benchmarks, so a bit of cherry picking could take place (and as we mentioned earlier, Smart Access Memory technology is also used to give the RX 6000 cards per Upper hand).
The other point Nvidia is currently worried about must be that it won’t be able to get a sufficient number of RTX 3000 graphics cards to market, a situation that doesn’t seem likely to change until 2021.
AMD has already hinted that RX 6000 graphics card inventories will be better than Nvidia maintains, but we recently heard rumble on the grapevine that Big Navi may have its own inventory issues.
Nvidia can also take comfort that AMD isn’t talking about ray tracing, despite allegedly working on a technology similar to Nvidia’s DLSS at AMD to improve frame rates when turning on all ray tracing bells and whistles.
