Radeon RX 6800 Specs & Features

Next up is the Radeon RX 6800 which trades blows with the RTX 2080 Ti (now RTX 3070). This is interesting as AMD claims that it can deliver similar performance, and better in some cases, while drawing less power.

The Radeon RX 6900 XT was AMD’s secret sauce which we’ve known about for quite a while. But what’s more interesting is its cost. At $999, it’s cheaper than NVIDIA’s RTX 3090 by a wide margin and performs at parity with it! Of course, we’ll have to wait for reviews to actually test that claim, but suffice it to say that AMD is giving team green some tough competition.
