AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series has been creating a buzz in the market with its performance ratings, and there have been several leaks about the new card from AMD.
@PJ_Lab_UH, an editor at Uniko’s Hardware (UH), has posted a new leak that appears to be the score of Radeon RX 6800. UH, however, does not confirm if the GPU is indeed the Radeon RX 6800 or not. However, according to sources, the card which was being tested could exceptionally be an early engineering model. Hence such the name of the card went unrecognized by the driver.
Let’s assume that it is indeed the RX 6800; then, the results are pretty amazing. The card managed to score 12,704 points in Time Spy and 16,775 points in the Graphics test. The CPU, however, was shown as the Ryzen 5 3500X on the scoreboard.
When we compare the Time Spy Graphics scores of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, we get NVIDIA that scores 13,622 and 12,864 in Time Spy and Graphics test, respectively. If AMD’s card’s leaked results belong to the Radeon RX 6800, the GPU is up to 23% faster than the RTX 3070 Founders Edition. It puts Nvidia in an uncomfortable position.
Another leak which we have on our hand’s states, in gaming performance, however, Nvidia’s RTX 3070 has a lead on Radeon RX 6800. Compared to Shadow of Tomb Raider at 1440p, the Nvidia RTX 3070 had a 5% lead on AMD’s RX 6800 graphics card. It was mainly due to NVIDIA’s powerful ray tracing ability, which manages to get the game at 80 fps.
However, it’s safe to assume that AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 will be a fair competitor to Nvidia’s RTX 3070. Though the RX 6800 is $80 costlier than RTX 3070, it brings some added benefits and features. It offers faster clocks up to 2,250 MHz and VRAM support up to 16 GB GDDR6 and higher bandwidth of 16 Gbps along with a higher TDP of 300 W.
