AMD Reveals More Radeon RX 6000 Series vs. Nvidia RTX 3000 Benchmarks

As AMD prepares to release the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards next month, the company has published additional benchmarks showing how the GPUs fare against Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series. 

You can find the benchmarks on this AMD webpage, which catalogs the performance across 10 PC games, including Doom Eternal, 2019’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare, and Resident Evil 3. 

AMD produced the results in the company’s own labs. So you should take them with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, the webpage does offer a convenient glimpse into the cards’ performance. For example, it lets you toggle between 4K and 1440p benchmarks. It’ll also tell you which graphics setting was used and whether DirectX 12 or the Vulkan API was enabled. 

The other interesting factor is how the benchmarks were produced over a PC unit running AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9 5900X CPU, which goes on sale Nov. 5. The AMD-exclusive Smart Access Memory technology, which can boost the gaming performance even more, has also been activated on the test rig.

Here are some of the benchmarks; as you can see, AMD’s RX 6000 series doesn’t always come out ahead on frames-per-second. A glaring example is the Division 2. Nvidia’s RTX 3090 and 3080 cards both outperform AMD’s trio of products.

On other games, such as Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, and Battlefield V, the Radeon RX 6000 series score better. However, the benchmarks can also be toggled to measure the performance by “FPS per dollar”—which is where AMD’s graphics cards can really shine, thanks to their lower retail prices compared to the $1,499 RTX 3090 and $699 RTX 3080.

Still, there’s a glaring hole in the scores. AMD wasn’t able to test the cards against Nvidia’s RTX 3070, which went on sale yesterday. Although it has a similar performance to the RTX 2080 Ti, the product’s $499 price point makes it the most affordable next-generation GPU between the two companies. 

AMD’s graphics cards, meanwhile, will start at $579 with the RX 6800, and then $649 for the RX 6800 XT. Both go on sale on Nov. 18.

The heavy-duty RX 6900 XT, on the other hand, will arrive on Dec. 8 for $999. Stay tuned for our reviews.
