In this news, we discuss the AMD announces Radeon RX 6900 XT and 2 other cards, claims it is faster than Nvidia RTX 3090.
AMD is on a roll. Kind of. Just weeks after claiming that its Ryzen 5950X is the world’s fastest processor in almost every aspect, the company announced that it will now offer the world’s fastest graphics card in the form of the Radeon RX 6900. XT. The new card, which uses the new RDNA 2 architecture and was called Navi 21 closer to launch, is faster than Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 if AMD is to be believed.
AMD has announced three graphics cards: Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT and RX 6800. All three, on paper, compare to Nvidia’s RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070 Ti, which launch today. The most significant aspect of AMD’s announcement is that, for the first time in nearly five years, the company claims to have a graphics card that beats Nvidia’s top card, which in this case is the RTX 3090.
AMD offers competitive pricing for the RX 6000 series cards. It will sell the RX 6900 XT for $ 999, the RX 6800 for $ 649, and the RX 6800 for an overall price of $ 579. The RX 6800 cards will be available from November 18, while the RX 6900 XT will hit markets on December 8. As for India, the prices will be much higher compared to world prices. In fact, the price of RX 6900 XT in India may end up being close to Rs 1 lakh. Availability of RX 6000 cards in India is also expected to be late, possibly in 2021 as India is rarely a priority market for hardware manufacturers and RX 6000 cards, if they are as good as expected, likely will be. . supply.
While AMD claims the crown of performance, in graphics cards things are not as fleshed out as they are in the processor market. With the Ryzen 5000 series, it looks like AMD is way ahead of Intel processors in the desktop market. But between the RX 6900 XT and the Nvidia RTX 3090, there doesn’t seem to be a clear winner despite AMD’s claims.
It’s possible that when the cards hit the market and people test them out, in some games the RTX 3090 ends up faster while some games favor the RX 6900 XT. Technologies like Ray Tracking will probably favor the Nvidia card.
However, even then the fact that AMD is on the same footing as the RTX 3090 is a big achievement given the performance gap between the Radeon and GeForce cards over the past five years.
AMD says the RX 6000 cards support DirectX 12 Ultimate and come with unique features like Infinity Cache, Smart Access Memory (requires a Ryzen 5000 series card), and Rage Mode.
“Today’s announcement is the culmination of years of R&D aimed at bringing the best of AMD Radeon graphics to the avid and ultra-avid gaming markets, and represents a major evolution in PC gaming,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager of the Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “The new AMD Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT graphics cards deliver world-class 4K and 1440p performance in major AAA titles. I can’t wait for gamers to have these amazing new graphics cards in their hands. “
