Average Bench: 171% (21st of 715)

Based on 20,197 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 73BF Model: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

The RX 6800-XT delivers a huge generational jump in performance. AMD have upgraded the single fan cooler to a more efficient triple fan solution, perhaps indicating a shift in focus from benchmark busting headlines to user experience. Following the widespread issues that users faced with the 5000 and Vega series, we are cautiously optimistic that AMD have taken steps to ensure driver and hardware stability, this will need to be proven over time. The release of the 6000 series explains why Nvidia doubled performance per dollar when they released their 3070 just a few weeks ago. A comparison between Nvidia’s previous generation flagship, the 2080 Ti, and the 6800-XT shows that AMD now offer comparable raw performance at half the price. 16GB of VRAM is a key feature of the 6800 cards. At higher resolutions and detail settings, performance can bottleneck without sufficient GPU memory. AMD's marketers often cherry pick obscure games with high res/settings, the details of which are rarely disclosed, then compare the results with cards that have less memory. In that scenario, the cards with less memory look weaker than they would at 1080p. The 1080p results are sometimes omitted, or worse, partially omitted and frame drops are conveniently ignored. Most users will see little benefit in gaming at high resolutions. Without drastic price cuts (MSRP $650 USD) and miraculous marketing via countless promo videos and sponsored reviews, the 6800 XT will struggle to compete, partly because it lacks RTX+DLSS which is required for the best gaming experience in class leading titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. Users should be wary of AMD’s army of social media accounts, they aim to dupe shoppers any way they can. [Nov '20 GPUPro]

AMD has finally done it in the gpu market with RDNA2 like they had in the cpu market with ryzen: overhyped hot garbage.—Dec '20

AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it.—Apr '21

Great GPU. Similar if not better performance to the 3080 if not using ray tracing.

I bought a 6800xt thinking would beat my 2080ti Strix OC, I was wrong like a MF, Amd is a junk indeed.
