Wow, even the number 3 card has 16GB VRAM and is faster than the 2080TI. And the $1000 6900XT matches the $1500 3090 in performance.

The 3000 parts don't look so hot now.

Post reviews edit:
It's astonishing what AMD have managed to achieve with both the Ryzen 5000 and the Radeon 6000, especially given the absolutely minuscule R&D budget and resources compared to nVidia/Intel. Lisa Su is definitely the "Steve Jobs" of AMD with such a remarkable turnaround.

6900XT:
(It's absolutely amazing to see AMD compete with the 3090)

Everyone was clowning the 6800 but it really does look damn good vs the 3070 like I said it would. Just goes to prove, I'm smarter than everyone else as expected.

Anyway, these look like decent AMD GPUs for once, so I'll probably pick one up, whichever I can find next week, doesn't matter which (might even be an Nvidia GPU)... I just need an upgrade.

As has been said many times already.

Lets wait for AIB's inventory.

AMD may simply have had very, very small inventory of REFERENCE designs, and much, much larger inventory of AIB GPUs.

I don't really understand why do we lose minds about reference inventory. IF, and that is a big IF, AIB inventory is as bad - that is the real problem.
But the AIB won't be the value that the reference is. They'll inflate the price.

Who the heck buys a 3080 to play at 1080p?
Gamers buying those monitors bellow

1080p @ 360Hz

Sigh 1400 dollars on a RX 600XT.... lmao...

And on top some guy even had 4 he was selling for 1600 each.
I guess AMD did not put any form of antibots in there checkout.

Didnt think they could botch the launch more then Nvidia, but it seems like they both took a leap of death off the grand canyon together with this launch and went straight down hill.

Heheheheh look what happened once real reviews came out...Unlike those shown by AMD these are different..Too bad when i said this 1 month ago everyone downvoted me

Multi game averages from multiple sites show it ahead. Pointing out a few specific titles is 'creating a narrative you want to believe.'


Maybe, maybe not. AMD has had consoles for a long time now and you'd think you would already see amazing optimizations on current hardware. I bought AMD before on that premise and it didn't really materialize. We'll see. I'm evaluating it on how things stand now. Honestly both are going to see improvements through driver optimizations. Its early days for the ampere drivers as well.


Sure, I have a ULMB monitor as well and know all about it. Still they both tend to be more than fast enough on the titles that matter for strobing displays to work well at 1440p. I'm less concerned about single player adventure type games with it. Adaptive sync is more important for those generally.
As I said this is your narrative. A card "wins" if it is largely faster than the competition. 3080 and 6800XT are trading blows and even on the same games it depends on the scene. Eg HU has 3080 faster at hitman 2 4k whereas TPU and GN have the 6800XT ahead. 3080 has a 4k edge on average but it is behind on far too many titles to say it wins because frankly, it is not clear.

And as I said, if you want to see the console effect, look no further than Hawaii vs Kepler or Maxwell to see how well it performed even against a newer and more gaming focused architecture, thanks to being a graphics arch present in consoles. This time it will be no different, console devs will scramble to get every bit of performance out of their hardware.

Ahahahh i see many guys over here are despeerately trying to change facts but i think thats hard to do...Maybe this one looks better for the RX6800XT?! :coldsweat:

What point are you even trying to argue? The two cards are basically within a few percent of each other and depending on the title have a few solid wins under each of their belts. Once you factor in the $50 price difference it's a wash in terms of value. It isn't as though anyone can just go out and buy either of these cards so it hardly matters there either.

Here's your post that was downvoted:

Pretty disappointing launch from AMD as i expected, they show the rx 6900xt being on par with the rtx3090 on their own biased benchmarks and probably best case scenario, its safe to say that once reviewers got these cards it will be 10% slower, so they price them lower as always...Its a hard sell since they lack proper raytracing and dlss i would rather spend a little more and have those features...

Just remember when they showed Fury X and Radeon VII, in both cases according to AMD benchmarks they were faster than the GTX 980TI and RTX 2080 but in reality they were quite slower and they both failed miserably
AMD's RDNA2 reveal had the 6800XT right about equal at 4K with AMD winning some and Nvidia winning some. At 1440p, AMD showed the 6800XT a small amount faster. Reviews show the 3080 to be ~5% faster at 4K and the 6800XT to be a a couple percent faster at 1440p. So, unlike what you were/are trying to say, their launch event showed a very accurate picture of how these cards perform. Obviously the performance will differ depending on the games tested so there will be some percentage shifts depending on testing suite but AMD wasn't just cherry picking games. You basically said AMD was lying and said they lacked proper ray tracing. Both of those are not true. You also said the launch was disappointing, which is obviously subjective, but you gave no reason for it to be disappointing other than you thought AMD was lying. So, yeah, you got downvoted hard.

Techspot/HWUB numbers seem to be higher than other outlets because they test at least three new games(Godfall, AC:Valhalla, and Dirt 5) where NVIDIA's driver optimizations are still not completely dialed in. When using a test suite comprised of games which should have their driver-level optimizations sorted by now, the gap between the RX 6800 and RTX 3070 is much smaller, cf. PCGH.de's review.


Also, looking at this and a couple of other outlets, TPU's power consumption figures for the RX 6800 seem to be an anomaly.

It's a tricky call between the 6800XT and 3080. The 3080 is pretty consistently faster at 4K, especially in the games I care about, but the 16GB memory may allow the 6800XT to pull ahead in future games. That's something we have seen before with previous cards. I would still probably get a 3080 or 3080ti for myself.

If you could buy a 6800 xt mid December
but had to wait until February for a 3080

Which would you get?

I could get a lot of quality time in during the week between Christmas and New Year's, and may have a shiny new copy of C2077 in hand. Whoever gets decent stock in before then (if any) will likely get my purchase.

I would just wait. I have a big backlog of older games I want to go through, and my existing 1080ti can handle them easily. I want to play CP2077 but prefer to not buy games on release anyway until they have fixed the bugs.
