The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT introduces the new Navi 22 GPU, which is optimized to take the fight to NVIDIA in the $500 segment. The RX 6700 XT in our review beats the RTX 3060 Ti with ease and achieves performance that rivals the more expensive RTX 3070, with lower fan noise.

Looks like they wanted to push it as far as possible in order to beat 3060 Ti. Still, cards will not be available in EU markets for months, and they'll eventually pop up they will be nowhere near the MSRP.

Hmm... Now only if I could get my hands on one of these or a 3060Ti at MSRP.

Very nice effort by AMD. They are firing on all cylinders right now. Let's hope this continues for a while. Competition should be good for us the consumers, but the supply issues are making that advantage null and void!

How can you speak on availability when the card isn't even available yet :kookoo:
Well if the card is not available yet, its unavailable right? :)

Great product technically since while made on the same process and having the same shaders as the Navi10 5700XT it reached the performance of nVidia's previous gen flagship @1440P. Market conditions are the worse though. In a few months if things calm down and prices are close to MSRP, that GPU will become the best in vfm. 2080Ti performance for less than $500?

I'm pretty sure a good overclocker will double those gains.

Browsed a lot of reviews. To me it is meh, more of 3060Ti level card than a 3070 level. That is excluding the fact DLSS 2.0 and better DXR performance on the green team.

if that's your logic then the 3070 is an even better deal as it's only 20 bucks more. Plus if ray tracing and dlss mean anything then 3070 will have even more value.

What in the heck are you talking about? Even going by just the msrp's that means all AMD is giving you is about 10% more performance per dollar over the 5700xt. That is an absolute joke of an improvement.

@W1zzard I just love that you're treating GPUs at their real cost to the consumer when assessing performance/$ and drawing your conclusions.

Do you have any plans to test a 6700XT against a 5700XT clock-for-clock to look at IPC improvements between RDNA2 and RDNA1? This is the first card released that allows an apples-to-apples comparison.

Can't really do a clock for clock with 192 bit bus a step back card against 256 bus. the 128 bit cards can be compared.

The 3070 is the better buy, just simply because of DLSS and better RTX performance, assuming MSRP prices.

Correct, but 5700XT overclocking at stock VRAM speeds proves that the 5700XT has more bandwidth than it needs, and the 6700XT's VRAM is clocked higher.

I don't think it would matter, at least it wouldn't have much impact at 1080p and if you wanted to make it a fairer comparison, 192-bit at 2GHz is bandwidth-equivalent to 256-bit at 1.5GHz, a simple underclock of the 5700XT's VRAM.

@W1zzard The name and the link for the XFX card in the conclusion part of the review are missing "Black" and "-black", respectively. It should be XFX Radeon RX 6700 XT Merc 319 Black.
I'm taking the liberty to rearrange and simplify product names when it makes sense for me ;)


Technically you are right of course, but apparently there's no "not Black" card, so why even include that part?

You can slow down the 256bit VRAM to the same bandwidth, if needed. But you will only find very few scenarios are bandwidth limited.

Well, well, well, just like I figured - despite their claims, this is much closer to 3060Ti than a 3070 and that's in best case scenario (1080p, rasterization only). Under truly gpu bound circumstances (4K) those claims of 3070-like performance fall flat on their ass and that's not counting in the abysmal OC performance (1% against 3060Ti's 7.5% :D) and lack of DLSS, not to mention Ray Tracing...

Man you obliviously have no idea how it works

The RX 6700 XT is on average 20-30% faster than the RX 5700 XT while also supporting more features

Even at MSRP the 5700XT initially launched at $449 vs the RX 6700XT at $479

So for $30 more you get upto 30% more performance. How is that a joke, that quite a improvement
