We have received the initial reviews of AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT, and from where we stand, the review will not make the executives at AD very happy. During the launch, the Radeon RX 6700 XT was presented as ‘the ideal choice for 1440p gaming’, cherry-picking games that demonstrated the card’s superior performance over NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070.
Unfortunately for AMD, reviews from sites like. While the consensus is that the Radeon RX 6700 XT noticeably improves upon the Radeon RX 5700 XT, the Navi 22-based card cannot be viewed in an AMD vacuum. According to sources, the Radeon RX 6700 XT falls short of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in a big way.
The reviews indicate that AMD’s Navi 22 offering rarely matches the RTX 3070, despite being closer to the RTX 3070 in price than the RTX 3060 Ti. It seems that Nvidia still has the upper hand when compared to AMD in the graphics segment.
Engadget has warned that AMD’s RX 6700 XT has noisy fans under load and most reviews note that there is limited overclocking potential. According to all the reviews gathered we can state that AMD’s RX 6700 XT is more capable than RTX 3060 Ti and less than the RTX 3070.
However, a large performance gap often exists between the RX 6700 XT and the RX 6800, which could have been better bridged with a slightly more powerful Navi 22 card.
