AMD, with its RX 6000 series has also marked its entry in the field of the first desktop graphics card with features like real-time ray tracing, variable-rate shading, and other DirectX 12 Ultimate features. As per AMD’s slides, 300W RX 6800 XT beats Nvidia’s 320W RTX 3080 at 4K by achieving a greater benchmark score in popular titles like Battlefield 5, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, and Forza Horizon 4.

However, it also faced narrow losses in some titles such as The Division 2, Resident Evil 3, and Wolfenstein Young Blood. In some titles such as Doom Eternal, Borderlands 3, Gears 5, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, there is no clear winner between the two cards.

RX 6900 XT, the costliest GPU of the series takes on RTX 3090. It features 16 GB of GDDR6 memory in comparison to Nvidia’s 24 GB. It has a boost clock rate of 2250 MHz, a standard clock rate of 2015 MHz, and an infinity cache of 128 MB. Though it carries a US $ 500 lesser price tag, AMD claims that it has beaten Nvidia’s 3090 in terms of benchmark scoring.

Note that all three cards are based on RDNA 2 technology and all of them come with a 2.5 slot design and triple fan system. This time, it seems that AMD is at the advantage of gaining a bigger market share in this genre because of its timing. AMD can cash in on Nvidia’s struggle to meet the high demands of its 3000 series cards because the latter has recently announced that the shortage of RTX 3000 series cards.

NVIDIA eventually declared that this shortage will continue till the year end so AMD can swoop in to disrupt Nvidia’s market.
