AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT

First third-party benchmarks for AMD Radeon RX 6700XT, slower than the RTX3070

AMD has lifted the review embargo for the AMD Radeon RX 6700XT and the first third-party gaming benchmarks have appeared online. According to multiple sources, this new GPU is slower than the RTX3070 in most PC games, though there are a few exceptions here and there.

Tweaktown claims that the AMD Radeon RX 6700XT is significantly faster than the RTX3070 in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. AC: Valhalla always favoured AMD’s GPUs, so this isn’t a big surprise. Moreover, this latest AMD GPU is almost as fast as the RTX3070 in Metro Exodus.

PCGamesHardware states that the new AMD GPU is noticeably slower than the RTX3070 in both Crysis Remastered and Cyberpunk 2077.
