The Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card is entering the market today. True, it is conditionally impossible to buy it, judging by the preliminary data, but we can read the reviews and find out if it was able to defeat the RTX 3090.
As always, you can find a lot of reviews on the link on the Videocardz website, but we will give only a few of the most illustrative diagrams.
As you can see, the RX 6900 XT falls short of the RTX 3090 by about the same as the RX 6800 XT to the RTX 3080. The cards’ difference is only about 6-8%, and AMD’s new product bypasses its little sister by about 8-10%. Thus, as in the case of the top-end Nvidia cards, the lower-end card is more expedient. However, it is worth remembering that the RX 6900 XT costs $ 1,000, while the RTX 3090 costs 1.5 times more. Thus, if we take the most productive solutions, AMD’s new product is more attractive. Of course, now it is still conditionally impossible to buy any of the listed cards at a price even close to the recommended one, but that’s another story.
It is also worth noting that the RX 6900 XT consumes less power, and even the RTX 3080 beats AMD’s new product, which is very impressive. This is especially impressive if you pay attention to the fact that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Radeon RX Vega 64 consume about the same amount, which is about twice as slow.
