[GameSpot] - AMD RX 6800 XT And 6800 Review: Radeon Rising

Recommended Posts

With the launch of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, AMD has been able to re-establish a footing in the conversation around high-end graphics processing. All that talk about RDNA 2 GPUs put the company in the spotlight, and its efforts amounted to some powerful next-generation gaming consoles. Both the Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 video cards bring the power of the RDNA 2 architecture to PC gaming and, based on our results, they make really strong cases for PC enthusiasts to consider AMD--which is something that we haven't earnestly said in quite a long time.

It's tricky, though. Nvidia has been breaking ground since 2018 with its RTX GPUs that integrate hardware-based solutions for ray tracing and AI-driven graphics tech. Over two years, we've seen developers gradually adopt real-time ray tracing in games for photorealistic lighting, shadows, global illumination, and reflections. The cut in performance while using these features can be significant but ray tracing has made strides since its introduction into mainstream gaming. The growing support for DLSS (deep learning supersampling) makes 4K image quality and ray tracing feasible while keeping frame rates high, too. In regards to innovation, Nvidia remained untouched. While AMD put out some solid mid-range cards with the RX 5000-series in that time, it wasn't able to challenge Nvidia at the high-end.
