AMD has officially announced its RDNA 2 high-end GPUs, the AMD Radeon RX 6800XT and RX 6900XT. According to the red team, this GPU is as fast as NVIDIA’s high-end latest GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.
AMD has shared some first-party gaming benchmarks, in which it put the RX 6800XT against the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 in 4K and 1440p.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800XT features 72 compute units, 2015Mhz game clock, 2250Mhz boost clock, and 128MB Infinity Cache. It also comes with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and requires 300W total power. This GPU will be priced at $649, and will be available on November 18th.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 features 60 compute units, 1815Mhz game clock, 2105Mhz boost clock, and 128MB Infinity Cache. It also comes with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and requires 250W total power. This GPU will be priced at $579, and will be more powerful than the RTX2080Ti.
AMD also revealed its highest RDNA 2 model, the AMD Radeon RX 6900XT. AMD Radeon RX 6900XT will be available on December 8th and will cost $999. This GPU will challenge the RTX3090, a GPU that costs way more than it. The AMD Radeon RX 6900XT features 80 compute units, 2015Mhz game clock, 2250Mhz boost clock, and 128MB Infinity Cache. It also comes with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and requires 300W total power.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
