AMD previously only had the Radeon RX 5700 XT as its highest tier GPU which barely rivaled the Nvidia RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 GPU at the time. Both the RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT were AMD’s re-entry to the flagship GPU space but like the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, their prices were out of reach for most consumers. Enter the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, a sub-$500 graphics card that offers twice the performance of the RX 5700XT while delivering a 50% performance per watt efficiency and Ray Tracing. The successor to the RX 5700 XT is up for some serious competition against the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti for the 1440p gaming crown title. Let’s take a closer look and see if the RX 6700 XT is able to do it with a price tag of $479.
RDNA 2 Architecture
The RDNA 2 Architecture, or commonly known as Big Navi, is the generational evolution of the RDNA Architecture found on the RX 5000 series. While both are under TSMC’s 7nm process, the architectural improvements on RDNA 2 allow AMD’s RX 6000 series to be DX12 Ultimate certified as well as Ray Tracing capabilities.
