Average Bench: 199% (10th of 704)

Based on 3,023 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 73A5 Model: AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT

Whilst the drought in the GPU market continues, street prices for AMD cards are around 50% lower than comparable (based on headline average fps figures) Nvidia cards. Many experienced users simply have no interest in buying AMD cards, regardless of price. The combined market share for all of AMD’s RX 5000 and 6000 GPUs amongst PC gamers (Steam stats) is just 2.12% whilst Nvidia’s RTX 2060 alone accounts for 5.03%. AMD’s Neanderthal marketing tactics seem to have come back to haunt them. Their brazen domination of social media platforms including youtube and reddit resulted in millions of users purchasing sub standard products. Be wary of sponsored reviews with cherry picked games that showcase the wins and ignore the losses. Experienced gamers know all too well that headline average fps are worthless when they are accompanied with stutters, random crashes, excessive noise and a limited feature set. [May '22 GPUPro]

stronger than the 7800xt sadly


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.—May '22


Keeps crashing intermittently on me. Sometimes play games for hours and no issue and other times after 20 or 30 minutes, game crashes with driver issue. Swapped to AMD GPU for cheaper price and regretting it.—Apr '23

Experienced gamers avoid AMD for a reason... A bus company with drunk drivers can’t win long term users with paid reviews.—May '22

It is always a hit or a miss with AMD GPU. However, I have found RX 6950 to be a good hit. The GPU has not given me any problems and has been outperforming some of its competitors in some heavy-task operations. However, it is only worth upgrading to this GPU if you make a significant GPU jump. Upgrading from 6900xt to 6950xt would be unreasonable. While upgrading from anything below 6800xt will display a considerable improvement in GPU performance. This GPU will be worth while.

It is a good card, with a great performance, I got the MSI gaming trio x model a bit hot but a great card
