AMD has stepped into the power gaming scene with the recent launch of the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards. The Navi 21 architecture powers the graphic cards.
AMD Radeon RX 6800 / RX 6800 XT Architecture
The Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT advanced micro devices are priced at $579 and $649. While 60 Radeon CUs power the Radeon RX 6800, 16GB GDDR6 memory, 1815MHz base clock, and 2015MHz boost clock, the Radeon RX 6800 XT is powered by 72 CUs with a 2015MHz base, 2250MHz boost clock, and 16GB GDDR6 memory. Additionally, both cards have 128MB of ‘Infinity Cache,’ which is the memory space embedded between the GPU and the GDDR6 memory interface.
Radeon RX 6800 And Radeon RX 6800 XT: Performance
The Radeon RX 6800 XT advance micro device delivers good performance across several popular AAA game titles at 4K resolution, without the ray tracing feature.
The Radeon RX 6800 is more cut out and dry when it comes to performance than the NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 card. The card delivers 4K resolutions, with its larger 16GB VRAM variant and the AMD Smart Access Memory technology-enabled. At 1440p, things become tighter between the two cards depending on the game titles.
AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Cooling Solution
In terms of cooling and power, the AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series has an efficient system. The AMD’s dual axial fan design in the Radeon RX 6800 series is relatively quieter than the predecessor cards.
Regardless of the features, the two Radeon graphics cards are among the best graphics card tools available for a good gaming experience. In terms of market and business perspective, the AMD’s rDNA 2 Radeon RX 6000 series cards are getting popular in the market due to their core CPU architecture that has been taking market share from Intel for many years now.
