Teaser

There have been quite a few performance numbers of the Radeon RX 6000 series available in the past few days, a few via leaks and few from AMD itself. @PJ_Lab_UH, an editor at Uniko's Hardware (UH), has posted what appears to be a Time Spy score of the Radeon RX 6800.

UH does not confirm if the GPU is indeed an RX 6800 as there is no such indication in the benchmark result itself. That being said, it is possible that the card being tested in an early engineering sample whose name is not correctly recognized by the driver.

Assuming that it is indeed the RX 6800, we see that the card manages to post 12,704 points in Time Spy combined and 16,775 points in the Graphics test. The CPU being indicated is a Ryzen 5 3500X. Taking the Time Spy Graphics scores of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition from Guru3D and HotHardware reviews (13,622 and 12,864, respectively), we find that the alleged Radeon RX 6800 is up to 23% faster than the RTX 3070 Founders Edition putting it a very comfortable lead.

In another leak by the same person, we have also seen the RX 6800 performing just 5% slower than the RTX 3070 in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 1440p with ray tracing enabled managing about 80 fps.

Overall, it looks like AMD may have a fine competitor to the RTX 3070. Though the RX 6800 is US$80 costlier than the RTX 3070, it does bring benefits of faster clocks (up to 2,250 MHz), more VRAM (16 GB GDDR6), and higher memory bandwidth (16 Gbps) all at a lower TDP of 250 W.

What remains to be seen is how AMD would implement ray tracing and super-sampling features. Hopefully, it won't be too long before we find out.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
