AMD Releases Even More RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT Benchmarks Tested on Ryzen 9 5900X

AMD sent ripples in its late-October even launching the Radeon RX 6000 series RDNA2 "Big Navi" graphics cards, when it claimed that the top RX 6000 series parts compete with the very fastest GeForce "Ampere" RTX 30-series graphics cards, marking the company's return to the high-end graphics market. In its announcement press-deck, AMD had shown the $579 RX 6800 beating the RTX 2080 Ti (essentially the RTX 3070), the $649 RX 6800 XT trading blows with the $699 RTX 3080, and the top $999 RX 6900 XT performing in the same league as the $1,499 RTX 3090. Over the weekend, the company released even more benchmarks, with the RX 6000 series GPUs and their competition from NVIDIA being tested by AMD on a platform powered by the Ryzen 9 5900X "Zen 3" 12-core processor.

AMD released its benchmark numbers as interactive bar graphs, on its website. You can select from ten real-world games, two resolutions (1440p and 4K UHD), and even game settings presets, and 3D API for certain tests. Among the games are Battlefield V, Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019), Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Borderlands 3, DOOM Eternal, Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Resident Evil 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Wolfenstein Youngblood. In several of these tests, the RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT are shown taking the fight to NVIDIA's high-end RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, while the RX 6800 is being shown significantly faster than the RTX 2080 Ti (roughly RTX 3070 scores). The Ryzen 9 5900X itself is claimed to be a faster gaming processor than Intel's Core i9-10900K, and features PCI-Express 4.0 interface for these next-gen GPUs.

How about AMD release COD Modern Warfare, BF5, SOTR with DXR benchmark number then ? make it easier to gauge RX6000 RT capability.

NO ONE REALLY CARES ABOUT RAYTRACING...All future games will be optimized for AMD's raytracing solution anyway. Given that the gaming being developed for this generation will be built to purposefully use Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architecture as the base specs.

Which doesn't seem to be to need brute-force path tracing anyway:



Besides, I wouldn't be surprised if Zen 3 "infinity cache" inside RDNA2 lets it spank Ampere even on that (rather quite useless for now and in forseable future) front.

It's funny because last year people ignore these RTRT and refer them as to "unnecessary" but now is major selling point along DLSS.

The 6000 series AMD cards are prepared for RayTracing. each CU has a ray tracing capability so I'm not worried. Besides, I'm more of a 4k gaming kinda guy and the ray tracing will have to wait a bit till there are games that I play supported with it. Which isn't happening this year anyway. To be fair, the 6800XT's performance is awesome. I 'm leaning more towards this card as my upgrade path.

My guess this comes down to games being written for rtx use and it's a mess when trying to switch over to pure dxr. AMD would not benefit in this scenario so they're simply not showing it.

I don't know a single gamer personally that cares about RT capability. I'm excited to play the next Battlefield 6 at 144fps, I don't want RT dragging me down. HAVE YOU SEEN THE RAY TRACING BENCHMARKS FOR WATCH DOGS? No thanks.

What I'd like to see are the same benchmarks on an Intel CPU, like the Core i9-10900K, to remove any of that new features that benefit from running on a 5000 series Ryzen CPU... as someone running an Intel CPU it would be nice to see. I'm in no way an NVIDIA fanboi (long time user of ATI/AMD cards in the past), I just want to get the best card for my system once silly season is over and availability is at a normal level for both.

I'm playing Watch Dogs Legion right now, the FPS is already low without RT anyways. Enabling RT Reflections really make WD Legion next gen graphically. 60FPS is already enough for single player game, idk why you need 144fps for single player game. For online multiplayer then sure, 200fps all the way.

Poor, the RT capability is poor just as it is with any other Nvidia GPU. RT is not yet a truly usable technology across the board no matter how hard Nvidia fanboys, or Nvidia themselves, try to make it seem like it is. The performance is still crap, most games run well under 60 FPS on high resolutions, that's why Nvidia keeps pushing for DLSS by the way, not because it's amazing but because it is the only scenario which generates playable conditions. The truth is that paying over a thousand dollars to not be able to play a game maxed out is pathetic, it means that the feature was implemented way too early. I can't blame them for not wanting to show any numbers for DXR games.

Sounds dangerously close to "your eyes can't see more than 30fps". Funny how excuses like these pop out no matter the context.

What's with the low RAM speed in the test setup.
Its the supported mem speed just like last gen

yep and once overclocked to 4000 1:1 these benchmarks will show it beating 3090 by a lot more... ram overclock gives ryzen major gains from my testing and what i have read. surprised AMD didnt try to oc the ram just to flex. :rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout:

The vanilla 6800 is actually looking really strong in the first few of those benchmarks.

It's great that yesterday's $1200 performance is now half price, but what the overwhelming majority have needed for two years is yeserday's $600 performance for $300.

Looked at gameplay and i am not blown away by the graphics, what surprised me the most this year was PS5 Horizon forbidden west, that is next gen graphics that truly takes advantage of what 7nm brought.
Nvidia is doing the usual crap to sway you from buying AMD and eventually kills it like PhysX, SLI and whatever gimmick they made in the past.
Ray tracing is here to stay but DLSS is a strange one, if AMD makes something similar it will probably die off and we are back to what really counts, architecture and the most important one, smaller node from TSMC or whoever is in silicon manufacturing business.
I'm looking forward to seeing what they release in the 200-300$ price range.

Good day everyone, I'm the person geniunely excited about raytracing. At least a third of the people I'm playing games with are excited too. Why? Because when implemented like in Control or Quake 2 it's legitimately the only eye candy tech that looks fresh to my eyes and makes me want to spend 700$ on a goddamn videocard. There are shite examples (Watch Dogs, WoW: Shadowlands, Dirt 5, BFV, etc.) where there are just some reflections or just some shadows and it doesn't make a difference but when it's all-out or close to it - man it looks amazing!
Hey, I'm also excited about 6800XT. I wanna know if it can do what I want it to do. Absolutely tired of people shouting that nobody cares. Where's your market research, mate?

AMD has an equivalent feature like the DLSS. It's called super resolution but it's hard to say how this one works and how it boost performance. We will have to wait for reviews anyway.

Seems like the people who yearn for high FPS are usually the people who can't afford high FPS :D

FPS is like money, once you have sufficient amount, having more doesn't generally bring you more happiness. 60FPS is really enough for single player game, when you have extra performance, just add more visual candies like RT.

And well if you can't afford RT then don't say something like RT is useless, that's is just living in denial...

Giga cringe. Maybe you read someone else's comment ? When did I say it's useless ?

Says who, you ? Non RT visuals are also enough. See how dumb this sounds ?

lolno, 60 fps feels like 30 fps after playing on a 144hz display, things are just so much snappier on 144hz

Might as well play with Low setting to get your high FPS there :D, enjoy your 100fps+
RT will always apply a performance hit, it aren't free visual upgrade.

Really, tell me what single player games can you play at 144hz at 4K Ultra setting with your 5700XT ? CSGO ?

60FPS feels like 60FPS. 100FPS feels like 100FPS and so on.
This 144Hz applies only to fast pace games mostly.

It means to get >60fps in single player game with your GPU, you are mostly playing with Low setting at 4K.
Or you actually never play any game and just decide that everyone need high FPS.

I don't think he understands its easy to get high refresh these days. i am playing dragons dogma maxed out at 144 fps 1440p with a gtx 1070... lol
