Radeon RX 6800 XT’s first 3DMark benchmark results are encouraging

AMD’s Big Navi launch is steadily approaching, and a photo of a PCB was recently released, allegedly of a Radeon RX 6800 or 6800 XT accelerator (Navi 21 or 21 XT). Now measurements of the performance of this solution in 3DMark have hit the web. If they are correct, and before the full-fledged release there can be no complete confidence in this, then we will get a worthy competitor to Ampere.

According to the informant @ harukaze5719, in the 3DMark Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme tests, the accelerator confidently bypasses the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and is slightly inferior to the RTX 3080. But already in the Fire Strike Ultra and Fire Strike Extreme tests, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT video card even bypasses the GeForce RTX 3090 leaving the RTX 3080 far behind. A number of online sources believe that the figures are true, but, we repeat, it is better not to give yourself hope before the official launch.

In addition, another Twitter informant, @CapFrameX, reported that in 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra, the “Big Navi” accelerator scores 11,500 points, which is 8.5% more than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 can provide – 10,600 points. Perhaps this assessment does not apply to AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT, but to a simpler version, Radeon RX 6800:

Recall that the announcement of the series of video cards Radeon RX 6000 will take place on October 28, that is, next week. It is assumed that the family will initially include three models based on the Navi 21 GPU: Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800. According to recent rumors, the younger versions of the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6700 with Navi 22 chip will be presented early next year.
