AMD releases detailed Radeon RX 6000 series benchmarks – 10 Games Tested
AMD has just released detailed benchmarking data for its Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards, comparing the company’s new RDNA 2 lineup with Nvidia’s RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards.
Below, we have charts which showcase the performance of AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6800 on a Ryzen 9 5900X-based gaming platform with 16GB of 3200MHz memory with AMD’s Smart Access Memory technology enabled in the system’s BIOS.
AMD has tested 10 different games at 1080p and 1440p, and we will be presenting AMD’s 4K benchmarking data below. A link to AMD’s website is available at the base of this article if you wish to consume more of AMD’s data.
In Battlefield V, AMD’s RDNA 2 lineup boasts a considerable performance advantage in DirectX 11 mode, with AMD’s RX 6800 XT besting Nvidia’s RTX 3090 graphics card while surpassing Nvidia’s RTX 3080 be an even larger margin. Here, AMD presents the most value, though it is worth noting that this game was tested in DirectX 11 mode without ray tracing enabled.
Borderlands 3 delivers similar results to Battlefield V for AMD, with their RX 6800 XT besting Nvidia’s RTX 3090 graphics card. That said, Borderlands 3 is a Radeon branded game, which already ran well on AMD’s older Radeon RX 5000 series products.
In Modern Warfare, AMD’s RX 6000 series lineup bests their nearest Nvidia price competitors, with AMD’s RX 6800 XT beating Nvidia’s RTX 3080 graphics card bt a significant margin. That said, these benchmarks do not appear to have DXR ray tracing enabled.
The Division 2
Ubisoft’s The Division 2 provides Nvidia with their first solid performance win, with their RTX 3080 graphics card besting AMD’s entire Radeon RX 6000 lineup.
DOOM Eternal shows AMD delivering performance levels which are competitive with Nvidia, with AMD claiming a performance per dollar victory over Nvidia.
Forza Horizon 4 offers AMD a huge performance lead over Nvidia, with AMD’s RX 6800 offering slightly more performance than Nvidia’s more expensive RTX 3080 graphics card.
With Gears 5, AMD has claimed a huge price/performance advantage over Nvidia, with AMD’s RX 6800 XT offering gamers more performance than Nvidia’s RTX 3090 graphics card. Gears 5 is a Radeon branded title, so this level of Radeon optimisation is expected.
In Resident Evil 3, AMD’s RDNA lineup offer competitive performance with Nvidia and slightly more value when it comes to price/performance numbers. Even so, Nvidia’s RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 do have a performance lead over their Radeon counterparts.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
With Shadow of the Tomb Raider, AMD is able to offer competitive performance levels, though it is worth noting that ray tracing is not enabled for these benchmarks.
In Wolfenstein Youngblood, AMD’s GPUs offer gamers with competitive performance levels. That said, this game does support DLSS 2.0, which gives Nvidia’s RTX series graphics cards a considerable performance boost when enabled. DLSS 2.0 gives Nvidia a huge advantage.
