Average Bench: 183% (10th of 689)

Based on 20,352 user benchmarks.  Devices: 1002 73BF, 1002 73AF Model: AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT

The RX 6900-XT assumes the flagship position in AMD’s latest RX 6000 series of GPUs which deliver a huge generational jump in performance. The $1,000 USD 6900-XT offers a small improvement (11% more compute units) over the already launched $650 USD RX 6800-XT. 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. Given the value for money now offered by both Nvidia and AMD, with the 3070 and 6800-XT, it is difficult to recommend any thousand dollar graphics cards to most gamers. 16GB of VRAM is a key feature of the 6900-XT. 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 $1000 USD) and miraculous marketing via countless promo videos and sponsored reviews, the 6900 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. [Dec '20 GPUPro]

Outstanding average bench

The AMD RX 6900-XT averaged 82.5% higher than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This is an excellent result which ranks the AMD RX 6900-XT near the top of the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 224fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 203fps

Very poor consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD RX 6900-XT is 78.5%. This is a particularly wide range which indicates that the AMD RX 6900-XT performs inconsistently under varying real world conditions.

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.—Dec '20

i wonder if the bad reviews are from people that don't really understand how to harness the power of the 6900xt. once you learn and find the offset and mess with mpt you ll understand and learn to love it. seems like nvidias spoiled a lot of you hahaha

Wb Gigabyte type card. Nicer upgrade compared with my last amd generation(r9). My one gripe(atm) is a tinny sound coming from card. Otherwise, no complaints, runs my game like i would want it to at max settings. Like the sleek look!
