As we reported a few days ago, the new AMD cards have been around for some time, however, they were shipped with ‘special’ drivers that limited their performance.
In fact, everything indicates that the performance figures that AMD revealed at the Ryzen 5000 presentation event are, after all, false, or belong to a model that is a little far from the performance of the manufacturer’s most ‘powerful’ card.
In short, AMD really wants to do to NVIDIA what it has done to Intel … And apparently, NVIDIA has already started to shake!
Come back-face! The RTX 3080 lags behind the new RX 6800 in (almost) everything!
So, new benchmark results for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT have arrived! Suggesting that this card may even be ahead of the RTX 3080, while also offering almost double the memory, and perhaps… Be cheaper than NVIDIA’s rival.
Well, the benchmarks were shared by the famous Igor’s Lab, and seem to have been ‘leaked’ by AMD’s own partners. Thus, according to YouTuber, the only card that we will see by the hands of partners such as ASUS, MSI, Sapphire, etc … It will be the RX 6800 XT based on the Big Navi GPU.
However, there are 3 benchmarks to analyze, 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, Time Spy Extreme and Port Royal. They all demonstrate the card’s performance in 4K, while revealing what the difference is between the eternal rivals AMD and NVIDIA. Now see:
Fire Strike Extreme:
- AMD RX 6800 XT – 13,066
- RTX 3080 – 10,688
Time Spy Extreme
- AMD RX 6800 XT – 8,232
- RTX 3080 – 7,977
- AMD RX 6800 XT – 4,438
- RTX 3080 – 5,415
In short, the RTX 3080 only won in the Ray Tracing test, everything else was behind the new rival. Here we have to point out that the RX 6800 XT is not the most equipped AMD board for this new generation, this honor is borne by the RX 6900 XT. However, if the 6800 already offers this level of performance … How will it be with the 6900?
AMD is really impressing! Hopefully, this whole performance war will also trigger a price war! Can you imagine NVIDIA lowering the price of the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 to try to fight AMD’s offer? It would be just brutal!
