AMD has updated its official website with a benchmark comparison tool that allows users to quickly compare the performance of its latest graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6800.

The tool also includes competitive comparisons, which provide a general idea of how the Radeon RX 6000 Series might compare to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs.

“All performance numbers have been generated and verified by testing in AMD internal labs,” the company noted. The system configuration that was used to generate these benchmarks is as follows:

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X
  • System Memory: 16GB DDR4-3200MHz
  • Motherboard: X570 Reference Platform
  • System BIOS: RQ21082B – AMD Smart Access Memory enabled
  • OS: Win10 Pro x64 19041.508
  • Radeon Driver Version: 20.45-201013n
  • GeForce Driver Version: 456.71

Note that these benchmarks were performed with AMD’s new Smart Access Memory technology enabled. This technology appears to be exclusive to Ryzen 5000 Series processors, which means that the metrics could be significantly less impressive on other CPUs.

While we’ll have to wait for third-party benchmarks for the definitive story, the tool supports AMD’s earlier claim that the Radeon RX 6000 Series can trade blows with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series. Red team’s flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card manages to take the top spot in the 4K Ultra setting for five titles, and in 1440p, it’s even more impressive, boasting the fastest performance out of every title aside from Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

There’s also FPS-per-dollar comparisons that suggest AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 Series are a far better value than what NVIDIA has to offer.
