American hardware developer AMD announces a completely new generation of graphics cards - one that wants to conquer the gaming performance throne and also beat the NVIDIA At all price levels
It seems like an eternity has passed since the last time we saw the RTG division of AMD Radeon Technology Group) aimed at the high performance market with new graphics cards. In fact, ever since the Radeon R9 290X we have not seen a graphics card that threatens the bestNVIDIA.
Starring Dr. Lisa Sue, AMD announces that it intends to compete head-to-head with the most advanced graphics cards from NVIDIA And do it in style.
The promise was simple - a 50 percent improvement in electrical efficiency over the previous generation. RDNA2 is the new architecture, with RDNA being the previous one, the one that appeared on the RX 5700XT. The target of the competition this time is slightly different in the past, when AMD Want the trophy.
In addition to the advanced architecture, there are steps taken to improve the traffic from the volume through the processor and the graphical memory on the video card. Infinity Cache is a caching technology in RDNA2 architecture that enables graphic cards Have a bandwidth of only 256 bits, but actual traffic enhancement that bypasses "traditional" 384 bits.
Along with a major improvement in the working frequencies of the graphics core, AMD Claims it has managed to outperform its forecast, showing performance improvement by up to 54% in power consumption. This is a very rare improvement in the same manufacturing process, and here is a 7 nm factory TSMC In Taiwan.
The smallest of the new graphics card to be launched is the Radeon RX 6800. This video card is expected to lead quite significantly in its performance over the RTX 2080 Ti, a video card that until recently was considered one and only monster at the top of the mountain. It is important to note that in the comparison we see here from AMD There is use of SAM, the new memory cache technology of AMD. We're probably likely to see slightly closer numbers without her, but it's still a pretty impressive achievement.
Next in line is theRadeon RX 6800 XT, a video card that may very well be the most popular choice among the new video cards.
The Radeon RX 6800 XT claims the performance crown for gaming compared to the RTX 3080 that has just been launched, with the average power consumption also expected to drop slightly with different heat envelopes of 300W compared to 320W. AMD knows that the new video card from NVIDIA It is very agile, and we are not ashamed to show us cases where there is a detour over the RX 6800 XT. Still, many thought thatAMD You will never get into this situation. There seem to be "forces" here.
Finally, there's AMD's big weapon up front NVIDIA, Which is the Radeon RX 6900 XT. This video card is aimed at what has recently become the Holy Grail of gaming products, Geforce RTX 3090's NVIDIA, A card she thinks is so invincible, she's pricing it at $ 1,500.
You can see that between the games he examined AMD, Using advanced caching mode, the RX 6900 XT reaches a state of similar performance and even surpasses that of theRTX The 3090 will be interesting to wait for the launch of the video card and see how really high the actual performance is.
Here you can see the technical data of the three new video cards announced alongside last year's Radeon RX 5700 XT. Thanks to architectural improvements the new monster of AMD Contains twice the amount of hardware we've seen so far, along with a respectable increase in operating frequencies.
All three new graphics cards get a 16GB graphics memory and this slightly breaks the rules of the game that it mainly set NVIDIA Regarding the relationship between price and volume זיכרון Graphic available. In fact, the veterans we have built have known these rules for decades in the field of video cards. "Do not worry about graphic memory" is the highlight here, when volume זיכרון It is a partner in all three new models.
The thermal envelope of video cards is slightly lower than that of video cards NVIDIA, And it's much thanks to the advanced production process of TSMC Along with the new architectural enhancements implemented in RDNA2.
The RX 6800 is a bit of a black sheep, and is priced at $ 580, which is relatively close to that of the RX 6800 XT. We were priced to see a slightly lower price that could also compete withRTX 3070 which costs $ 500, and also move far enough away from the price of the XT to create a fair opportunity for it to be bought.
The pair of RX 18 series graphics cards will be launched on November 6800. Later, on December 8, theRadeon RX 6900 XT.
It will be very interesting to see what response comes from the side NVIDIA For this move, and what the inventory of AMD graphics cards will look like compared to the almost non-existent one of NVIDIA. It will also be interesting to see the new RDNA2 architecture of AMD In a variety of content software from the field of video and image such as those of Adobe or Davinci Resolve for example. We will of course bring extensive coverage on the products with our own reviews. Worth staying updated!
