Earlier right now, AMD revealed their subsequent technology of GPUs which can be constructed on the Massive Navi/RDNA 2 structure. The three playing cards that AMD revealed to the world within the RX 6000 sequence was the RX 6800, 6800 XT, and the RX 6900 XT
Every of those playing cards additionally encompasses a tremendous dense and quick kind of cache that AMD is referring to as Infinity Cache. Ideally, this can enhance the bandwidth on their playing cards so the GPU can obtain directions extra rapidly whereas additionally reducing the facility wanted to ship these directions.
AMD additionally estimates that RDNA 2 GPUs will get 54% extra performance-per-watt. The general influence of AMD’s work to drastically lower energy consumption within the 6000 sequence playing cards is seen clearly of their spec sheets.
The primary card revealed, RX 6800 XT, is a mid-range powerhouse of a card with 16GB of GDDR6, 128 MB of Inifinity Cache, and a max clock velocity of 2250MHz. What’s extra spectacular is that this card goes toe-to-toe with Nvidia’s RTX 3080 in lots of video games.
Nevertheless, this card attracts a lot much less energy (300 watts) in comparison with Nvidia’s high card (350 watts) and it’s priced competitively at $650. The RX 6800 XT launches on Nov. 18.
The much less highly effective model, RX 6800, options the identical quantity of cache and GDDR6 VRAM as its massive brother with a barely decrease base (1815Mhz) and increase clock (2105MHz). However with these decreases additionally comes a hefty lower within the energy required (250 Watts) and worth ($579)
And for these on the lookout for an absolute beast in a small package deal, the RX 6900 XT seems to be that card. AMD claims that it’s going to have related gaming efficiency to the RTX 3090 with much less energy consumption and in a smaller type issue.
This card has the identical clock speeds and VRAM because the RX 6800 XT, however the enhance in compute items offers it that further computing energy that it must be on the identical degree because the 3090.
To this point, the entire Massive Navi benchmarks seem to put AMD’s newest choices on equal footing with Nvidia whereas utilizing usually much less energy at very aggressive costs.
As of proper now, AMD is aiming to launch the RX 6800 ($579) and the XT ($649) model on Nov. 18. The RX 6900 ($999) is at present slated for a Dec. 8 launch. You’ll be able to try the complete AMD 6000 sequence reveal occasion down beneath.
