Rx 6000 series gpu live announcement

The effective memory bandwidth far exceeds 3080, almost doubled.

From the perspective of clock speed, this trend continues, and AMD's performance is better than Nvidia's alternative products. Under the increased clock frequency, AMD has an extra speed of more than 500MHz, which will definitely play a role in the game scene.

As you can see, when comparing the 6800XT side by side with the 3080 at 1440p, AMD’s products almost always stand out. The only loss in this particular area is in Division 2 and Resident Evil 3, which is a great feat for AMD.

Having said that, these are the slides recently released by AMD. Many of them have been debunked due to the use of RAGE mode and smart access memory. We will introduce them in detail later.

With this in mind, how do these two powerful GPUs compare in terms of price and availability? Well, again, the AMD option is a slightly cheaper offer, and it’s on the shelves for $650. Compared with Nvidia's RX 3080 card, this is a reduction of $50. Although it is safe to say that Nvidia may continue to provide slightly faster GPUs at this specific price, it will certainly make most consumers think about it, especially considering that it has recently failed to produce enough GPUs to meet demand.

Finally, we are at the lower end of the price range. However, while the lower end of the price range may bore some people, at this price point, we can find the most competitive price.

Again, comparing these two cards side by side is not ideal, many specifications are only related to one of the cards, thanks to the architecture they are equipped with. However, as with the other theoretical steps in this guide, we can take a closer look at clock frequency, memory, and price.

From clock speed, AMD cards are again among the best, albeit by a small margin. The AMD card provides a clock power of 2,015 MHz, which is quite impressive compared to the maximum power of the Nvidia card. Even on the boost clock, the AMD card clock is still nearly 100MHz higher than the Nvidia alternative.

Like all cards in this guide, AMD GPUs have a slight advantage on compute nodes. In other words, Nvidia has caught up with this department from Turing's 12nm model.

Looking closely at the memory difference between the two cards, we see that AMD GPU has achieved an overwhelming victory. It's equipped with the same 16GB GDDR6 as the 6800XT and 6900XT, and the same 128MB infinite cache. Additionally, AMD cards have triumphed in terms of memory bandwidth and speed, while having the same 256-bit bus.

So from a gaming perspective, what does this all mean? Well, we're not sure right now, we're running our own exclusive benchmark at the 3070. But for now, we have good indications of performance differences based on the 2080Ti benchmark. The

RX 6800 has achieved a clear victory in almost every game that AMD showed during the live launch. True, these will be the best results, but they still give us the performance of the RX 6800 against the deadly enemy.

In all the excitement of the RX 6000 series launch, the emergence of a few new terms has left not just a few consumers scratching their heads: smart memory storage and angry mode.

These two features played an important role in all the reference slides during the AMD presentation, leading a lot of people to guess what they were.

Let's start with the anger mode.

This is a new form of overclocking. It is a simple button in the RADEON software package. After opening it, you can use the remaining overclocking space to release the card's full potential.

In any case, this is another unprecedented overclocking step.

Next, we have smart access memory, which is more technical than anger mode and should have a greater impact on overall performance as far as I know. Smart Access Memory

is a new feature introduced by AMD, which allows its latest CPU line to take full advantage of the infinite cache of the RX 6000 series instead of the previous standard 256MB segment. Simply put, smart memory access is a more effective way to combine the memory of the CPU and GPU. This is a feature provided by AMD but not provided by Nvidia, and one of the main reasons why its benchmark results are higher than the team green.

Having said that, this is actually a serious topic when buying a new GPU, mainly because users who currently have Intel CPUs may not get the performance improvements shown in the AMD slides.

However, the market seems to be good for AMD. Are many people worried?

Well, we have a comprehensive review of the latest RX 6000 series and RTX 30 series GPU lineups. I have to say that I was impressed with the way AMD returned in the late 2000s after the apparent lack of consumer interest. As Dr. Su often said, AMD is taking a journey, a journey that will put them at the top of the GPU hierarchy. Although this may sound a bit sacred to most people, it is true, especially when you look at their recently released products.
