The new mid-range: The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Desktop GPU is equipped with 12 GB of VRAM

Premium mid-range with RDNA2! A few months after the release of the new high-end GPUs based on the RDNA2 architecture, AMD has now also released the smaller version in the form of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. With the good results of the 6800 series behind it, the expectations for the new mid-range model are high. This review will reveal whether the GPU's performance is enough to compete with the GeForce RTX 3070.

Unfortunately, the graphics card market is still completely overwhelmed, which is reflected in the very poor availability of various graphics cards. Whether AMD manages to prevent the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT from suffering the same fate will be seen in the near future.

With the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, there's now an additional graphics card based on the new RDNA architecture that made its debut late last year. All the new features are included in the new mid-range model. For instance, there's support for both SAM (Smart Access Memory) and ray tracing. We received the reference model directly from AMD, and it appears to be quite compact compared to current graphics cards. Therefore, you don't have to pay much attention to case compatibility here. However, things can look different for custom designs, which are usually also equipped with a higher power target and, accordingly, a larger cooling system.

We find the trend of installing more VRAM to be positive. Due to the 192-bit memory interface, 6 or 12 GB is possible. Thankfully, AMD opted for the 12 GB variant. Nvidia also took the same step with the GeForce RTX 3060. This takes the wind out of critics' sails right away, since we're not dealing with a memory cripple with only 6 GB of VRAM here. The Navi 22 graphics chip reaches surprisingly high clock rates, although the base clock speed is only 1,569 MHz. However, the so-called "game clock" is actually 2,424 MHz, and the maximum boost speed is as high as 2,639 MHz. We were able to confirm all these high clock rates in our review, although the maximum boost speed is only available very briefly. Most of the time, the GPU ran at 2,580 MHz when gaming.

In terms of power demand, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT's energy consumption is similarly frugal as that of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. At 230 watts (TGP), the graphics card isn't excessively power-hungry. As for the reference model's workmanship, it can be said that everything looks very high-quality. Both the front and the backplate are made of metal and don't feel cheap, either. Visually, an illuminated "Radeon" logo decorates the graphics card. AMD recommends using at least a 650-watt power supply for operation. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT offers one HDMI port and three DisplayPorts for connecting monitors.

Our test system based on the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

A current AMD platform based on the Asus X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero Wi-Fi serves as our test system. The CPU (AMD Ryzen 9 5900X) offers good CPU performance, and we use an AIO (G.Skill ENKI 360) as cooling. The 32 GB RAM comes from G.Skill and was provided to us just like the AIO. We use the Acer Predator XB321HK as monitor. This doesn't limit us thanks to its UHD suitability. At this point, we would like to thank AMD for providing us with the test platform.

Synthetic benchmarks

In general, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT cuts a fine figure in the synthetic tests. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT and the GeForce RTX 3070 (here in MSI's Gaming X Trio variant) engage in a head-to-head duel. Both graphics cards are equally fast depending on the scenario, but one or the other has the edge now and then. However, gaming performance is what counts in the end, which we will address in one of the next sections.

The performance difference compared to the older AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is clear. The new AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is almost 30% to 40% faster. However, the performance difference to the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is disproportionately larger. In its defense, however, it has to be said that 1440p gaming is the primary focus with the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, while the Radeon RX 6800 XT is advertised for 4K gaming.

With the AMD Radeon RT 6700 XT, the manufacturer is primarily targeting gamers who predominantly play in 1440p. We can confirm this claim, and the numerous gaming tests showed that the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT can still run titles at QHD resolution without being overtaxed. "Still" is the keyword here, because the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT was also regarded as a 1440p gaming graphics card at the time of its release. If we take a closer look at the new Hitman 3, for example, we can see that the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT already struggles quite a bit with an average of 52 FPS. Things don't look any better for our GPU when it comes to the popular building simulation Anno 1800. However, a significant performance improvement in the form of driver updates has often been seen in the past. Nevertheless, these two games present an extreme scenario that is not transferable to all tested games. Many games can even be experienced in 2160p with the new Radeon RX 6700 XT. As usual, AMD is ahead at times and Nvidia at others in the gaming tests. Therefore, if you want to buy a graphics card based on your favorite games, you should take a close look at the performance comparison beforehand.

As always, we use the game The Witcher 3 (Ultra preset) to measure the frame times and frame rates. Apart from a single outlier, there are no irregularities here. The logged frame times are surprisingly constant and low in our sample. The performance curve of the frames per second registered is relatively stable over the course of the test. This means that there is no noticeable drop in performance during long gaming sessions.

Compute performance

We already established that AMD was able to increase compute performance significantly with the RDNA 2 architecture in our review of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT. Compared to the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT also shows a significant improvement, although both graphics cards have the same number of computing cores. However, our test card can't hold its own against the competition from Nvidia. The GeForce RTX 3070 is faster in some cases.

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT copes well with the 230 watts specified (TGP). In direct comparison to the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, our review sample is a bit more power hungry, even though the increase is kept within limits at about 20 watts. Compared to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is much more energy-efficient in our comparison. AMD's new mid-range GPU is a bit more frugal both when gaming and in the stress test.

AMD relies on the design of the 6800 series for cooling. However, AMD only provides the RX 6700 XT with two axial fans that are very quiet. In 2D mode and under low load, they even stand still, which definitely suits users who are sensitive to noise. Nevertheless, the two 85-millimeter rotors never really rev up under load. Even during the stress test, GPU-Z displayed a good 1,700 revolutions per minute. With that, the graphics card wasn't audible outside of our test system. The case fans were louder in this scenario.

We were already able to see that the cooler does a good job when looking at the frame rates. This translates into just under 80 °C (~176 °F) for the GPU under load. Nevertheless, there's a hot spot temperature of 96 °C (~205 °F). AMD specifies a maximum hot spot temperature of 110 °C (~230 °F). The GPU is likely to slow down here.

Overall, the emission rates of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT are good, even though the gap to the maximum hot spot temperature is a bit narrow. It remains to be seen how the model performs on hot summer days.

With the Radeon RX 6700 XT, AMD has launched a fast graphics card for 1440p gaming. All the latest games can be played smoothly in the native resolution without compromising on quality. However, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is often outperformed by the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 in gaming tests. This is especially true when it comes to features like ray tracing. In addition, AMD still doesn't have an alternative to Nvidia's DLSS. Nevertheless, the graphics card is fast and equipped with 12 GB of VRAM, which is in line with modern standards. Meanwhile, Nvidia has also realized this and recently introduced the GeForce RTX 3060 with 12 GB of VRAM as well.

The new Radeon RX 6700 XT has it easy compared to its predecessor, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. Performance could be improved significantly in all areas, even though both graphics cards are equipped with 2,560 shader units. The advantage of the RDNA 2 architecture can be seen clearly here, since the performance increase wasn't achieved through higher energy consumption. Both graphics cards consume somewhat the same in the test.

With the new AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, the mid-range now gets a decent performance boost. No corners have been cut when it comes to VRAM, either, since the graphics card is very well equipped with 12 GB.

The next few days will have to show if the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is going to be a successful model, because everything depends on the availability of the new graphics card. The competing models (RTX 3070) are currently going for 1,000 Euros (~$1,198) and up. AMD has specified an MSRP of 479 Euros (~$574) for the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. It remains to be seen how much the model will really cost in the end. The only advantage that AMD has against Nvidia at the moment is better availability, because the latter doesn't have any alternative priced at just under 500 Euros (~$599) right now.

After Nvidia tried to make the GeForce RTX 3060 unattractive for miners by putting brakes on mining cryptocurrency, AMD should have perhaps also thought about such a step. After all, a short test showed that the Ethereum hash rate (about 45 MH/s) with the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is on par with an unthrottled GeForce RTX 3060. That's still a bit less than compared to the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, but it might still be interesting for miners.

Consequently, users who are planning a GPU upgrade should strike quickly before the prices of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT also reach utopian levels. A price drop below the MSRP will most likely not happen for a long time.

However, the AMD graphics card is also an interesting upgrade option if the system doesn't have a recent CPU. The keywords "driver overhead" should be mentioned here, because AMD graphics cards achieve higher FPS than their Nvidia counterparts in the CPU limit. This is a very positive side effect if you don't want to replace the entire system.

I was already interested in technology from an early age, and I was able to study for my dream job as an IT Systems Electronics Engineer. Subsequently, I started 12 years of military service, during which I learned a lot about technology and constantly kept my knowledge up to date with the latest developments. As I like to share my knowledge, I found Notebookcheck was a very good opportunity for this. In addition, I also work a lot with water cooling and network security.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
