Anyone in the market for a new high-end video card has had the Radeon RX 6800 XT as an option since November 18th. This AMD model is built around the manufacturer’s new RDNA 2 architecture and, in terms of performance, it measures well on average with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080.
In our review we came to the conclusion that the 1440p RX 6800 XT is slightly faster than its direct competitor from Green Camp, while GeForce is slightly faster at 4k. For those who do not need the best ray-tracing performance, and who appreciate the power consumption and high performance noticeable at low resolution, the Radeon RX 6800 XT is anyway an interesting candidate.
Anyone convinced of the new generation of Radeons and immediately went to the (digital) store would come home from a rude awakening. Limited hardware availability at the end of 2020 has continued to date, with the video card market particularly affected. Anyone seeking a video card should look good and be patient. The same applies to the Radeon RX 6800 series as it is to the Nvidia offering.
However, it is certainly not impossible to get such a graphic sample in 2021. This makes the question of exactly who you picked up more relevant. In this article, we’ll leave two Radeon RX 6800 XT video cards competing: Sapphire Nitro and Gigabyte Gaming OC.
