AMD Radeon RX 6000 is officially presented

During today’s official presentation, AMD showed us a new generation of its video cards – Radeon RX 6000, which currently includes the flagship and sub-flagship models Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800. Interestingly, Radeon RX 6800 XT already was spotted a month ago at the presentation of the AMD Ryzen 5000.

AMD has announced two major innovations in the new 6000 model line – increased clock speeds, and a new Infinity Cache, which has doubled in bandwidth. This has increased the performance-to-efficiency ratio by 54 percent compared to RDNA-based graphics cards. The average performance of the RX 6900 XT increased by 65 percent compared to RDNA. Performance with 4K gaming has doubled compared to RDNA.

AMD positions the Radeon RX 6800 as a direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 TI and RTX 3070, the Radeon RX 6800 XT as a competitor to the RTX 3080, and the Radeon RX 6900 XT as a competitor to the RTX 3090. Rage Mode overclocks best performance. and Smart Access Memory. Interestingly, AMD solutions often overtake NVIDIA not only in performance but also in energy efficiency.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT are expected to go on sale for $ 580 and $ 650, respectively, on November 18, and the flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT is expected to go on sale on December 8 for $ 1,000. Since there is no phenomenal difference between AMD and NVIDIA solutions, as between AMD and Intel in the processor market, the company that will be able to meet the demand for next-generation graphics cards will also benefit. NVIDIA has failed to do so, but we’ll see if AMD can do it.
