Amd radeon rx 6800 xt black edition
With the release of the latest graphics card from AMD just a few weeks later, we have seen previews of various AIB models appearing on the internet. Today we are seeing a trailer like this. This time around, it takes the form of an AMD Radeon RX 6800XT Black Edition graphics card, said to have been manufactured by Sapphire.
AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Black Edition, in a word, amazing. If you are like me, the closet is almost all black clothes, this will fit very well with your aesthetic. However, it should not be confused with the XFX Black Edition of the same name with a custom-designed cooler. The model will have a reference PCB and cooling layout. Although we are not sure which manufacturer behind this retail version is, the source suggests that it may be Sapphire. Either way, everything will be clear after a few days.
Take a closer look at the design here for a minute, and you will understand why we like it so much. This design uses a completely black back panel, even the front shield and I / O board are black, which is different from the standard design with silver and black decorations with a silver back panel. The edges of the fan blades and the outer edges of the Radeon stickers have silver accents. It looks more elegant and fresh than the reference design. Also, from the running images of some leaked cards, we can see that there is still a small part of RGB (we know how much you like some good RGB). What we see in these images is that only the Radeon logo lights up, but that just means it leaves some room for light for all other RGB components, right?
AMD revealed all the specifications and details of its 6000 series GPUs in a recent live event, let us formally understand the functions of these cards. AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT will be equipped with Navi 21 GPU, a streamlined SKU with 72 computing units, 16GB DDR6 memory on a 256-bit bus interface, a total bandwidth of 512GB/s and a basic clock speed of 2015 MHz and an increase of 2250 MHz. Thanks to its 72 ray accelerators, the card can handle ray tracing. In addition to standard memory, it also has 128MB Infinity Cache, which means you can increase bandwidth to get better performance at higher resolutions (we are talking about 1080p+). But, setting aside all these statistics, what does this mean for PC gamers? Well, compared to its main competitor, the Nvidia RTX 3080, AMD's benchmark test shows a bit of mixed results. Although the 6800XT has brought some obvious victories in 4K games of various games, these results are based on the allAMD system, running the new Ryzen 5000 series CPU next to the 6800XT. This means that the system can take advantage of AMD's latest Rage Made and Smart Access Memory technologies. We still don’t know how much difference the performance will be if the new GPU is paired with an older 3000 series CPU or even an Intel CPU.
When we enter a 1440p game, the same result will appear, AMD wins in most games, although the performance improvement here is more obvious. Of course this is using the same settings as before, so we don't yet know how angry mode and smart memory access will affect these results.
Before we get a chance to compare 6000 series GPUs for ourselves, it's hard to say exactly which card is best suited for your configuration. The AMD 6800XT is priced at $ 649, while the Nvidia RTX 3080 is priced slightly above $ 699; this may be AMD beating Nvidia in terms of price / performance.
