AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT gaming benchmarks surface online

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT's gaming prowess has been tested

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card has pitted against its main competitors, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070. The AMD mid-ranger manages to best the RTX 3070 in only a handful of titles while managing to consistently remain ahead of the RTX 3060 Ti. However, the 6700 XT's raytracing performance leaves a lot to be desired, though.

With the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT due to hit shelves soon, gamers are eager to know how the graphics card holds up its similarly-specced Nvidia counterparts. We stumbled upon it on Geekbench, where the card crashed and burned, presumably due to bad drivers. Wccftech has now received some real-world benchmarks of the Radeon RX 6700 XT running popular AAA games. Do bear in mind that these results are not fully indicative of how the graphics card performs, as we do not know anything about the testbench configuration, such as the CPU model, RAM, etc.

The benchmarks compare the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 at 1440p. While the AMD mid-ranger bests both of Nvidia's offerings in some games such as Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Battlefield 5, it fails to consistently maintain its hegemony, with the RTX 3070 managing to best it in most titles. The Radeon RX 6700 XT does, however, manage to consistently outperform the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, except in a few instances.

Moving on to the raytracing power of all three cards at 1080p, the results are hardly surprising. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT falls flat against both the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands seems to be an exception, but we can chalk that down to AMD-specific optimizations. These results are hardly surprising, considering that AMD still has to catch up with Nvidia on the raytracing front. Things should chance once technologies like FidelityFX gains more mainstream acceptance.

We're probably looking at the 230W TGP variant of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, as its performance sits between that of the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070, which reaffirms the information provided by an earlier leak. Considering that these benchmarks were likely run on unstable drives, we can expect a bit more performance out of the Radeon RX 6700 XT's retail units. The benchmarks make it abundantly clear that the AMD's newest mid-ranger is can hold its own in rasterisation, but its raytracing prowess is a bit lacking.
