Welcome back to the world of competition AMD. Seriously well done on this product. Feels good to see them fighting back hard.

Look foward to the 6900/XT

Good performance. Mediocre Raytracing for now. Great power consumption. Negligible overclocking gains.

600 € and 670 € here in Spain respectively (out of stock). Next year we'll have enough stock I guess.

Wowzers, that's very, very good. Both the 6800 and 6800XT are 1440p kings for sure. Congratulations, RTG! And the 4k performance is still highly competitive.

Thanks so much for the thorough review, as always.

I noticed TPU had much lower power consumption numbers. I know everyone tests differently with different systems, so I'm not comparing them. I just want to add to how competitive AMD is. Looking at TPU's numbers, the 6800 draws less power than the 5700XT in gaming... and obviously way less than the 3080 and even the 3070. That's an incredible feat for the same 7nm process!

And the temperatures are definitely there as well. The cooler seems to be performing admirably. It's the first time in donkey's years where you could buy the AMD reference design and not feel like you're compromising on anything.

Ray-tracing is certainly behind Nvidia; they have a strong lead on AMD it seems. I wouldn't consider that a deal-breaker, but the 3070 and 3080 offer better value for money if you care a lot about RT. Add DLSS to that and Nvidia aren't in trouble of losing too many sales I don't think.

Seeing as I saw early UK listings at over £700, that's excellent pricing for Spain.

very nice review the fact it pulls less power than a 5700xt i find very impressive going to get another coffee and nose through the written bits and slides .... i am going to build a new system soon to replace my 5820k with 1080ti and am wanting allmost all the same parts as ttl just showed apart from a lesser 8 core cpu i really like the little bit darker board and whole amd eco system idea and yer with the consoles i think these will have a great lifespan. look forwards to the water build some really nice stuff there thats 1 very happy cat 2

I still think RT is a non issue with these cards. DLSS is what they need to answer for.

Encoding is poo too. And so is streaming.

I also don't like the way they brushed DLSS aside by saying it is not native res. That's a seriously, seriously foolish move.

Usually a company does that when it doesn't have a leg to stand on, like Intel with their "glued together" comment, which does not bode well. If AMD had a genuine alternative, surely they'd just sit on it, happily knowing it'll be an equal.
