Today the Radeon RX 6900 XT video card is launched on the market. True, to buy it, judging by preliminary data, conditionally impossible, but we can look at the reviews and see if it was able to win the RTX 3090.
As always, with many reviews you can find a link on the site Videocardz, we will only give a few of the most illustrative diagrams.
As you can see, the RX 6900 XT does not reach the RTX 3090 about the same amount as the RX 6800 XT to the RTX 3080. The difference between the cards is only about 6-8%, and its younger sister AMD novelty bypasses by about 8-10%. Thus, as in the case of top-notch Nvidia cards, it is more appropriate to definitely use the younger card. However, it is worth remembering that RX 6900 XT costs 1000 dollars, while RTX 3090 – one and a half times more. Thus, if you take the most productive solutions, AMD novelty is more attractive. Of course, now it is still conditionally impossible to buy any of these cards at a price at least close to the recommended one, but this is a separate story.
It should also be noted that the RX 6900 XT consumes less power, and even the RTX 3080 bypasses the AMD novelty, and it is very impressive. This is especially impressive when you consider that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Radeon RX Vega 64 consume about twice as much, which is twice as slow.
