AMD’s RDNA2-based GPU’s will be launched in the Quarter one of 2021, but it is not stopping some developers to check the performance of these cards. The developers at ComputerBase has put together the most exhaustive performance report of the RX 6800/XT cards.
According to them, the new AMD cards, especially the RX 6800 model, has performed extremely well and have given out some surprising results. The RX 6800 XT has shown a decrease in power requirements, and high power demand was not significant. The voltage could be lowered from 1.15 V to 1.025, and it won’t cause any instability to the system and performance. The lower voltage even boosts the performance up by a few fps across the board.
The results prove that though RX 6800 XT offers low voltage, the RX 6800 is much more efficient when it comes to under-volting. The voltage can be lowered from 1.025 to 0.9 V. We are entering the age where laptop-grade power efficiency is extremely valuable, and AMD seems to be hitting the bullseye in this regard.
There are rumors that AMD could release an RX 6800M GPU with a 150-180 W TGP that will match the performance of the desktop RTX 2080 Ti. The RX 6800M will probably come with the same 60 CUs as the desktop version but will have lower core clocks set to 1.7 GHz and boost clocks set to around 2 GHz.
According to sources, Nvidia is planning to release mobile versions for the RTX 3000 series, but we are not sure if it can provide performance gains over the 2080-series. Because the card will be based on an 8 nm fabrication process from Samsung, on the other hand, AMD relies on its own architecture and seems to have the upper hand in this regard.
