AMD’s newly announced RDNA 2 graphics card, the Radeon RX 6700 XT, measures up to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 pretty well in regard to general gaming performance. This is according to leaked DirectX11 and DirectX12 1440p benchmarks published by Wccftech, which show red team’s GPU beating out its Ampere-based counterpart in a variety of titles that include Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (81 vs. 69 FPS), Battlefield V (149 vs. 136 FPS), and Immortals Fenyx Rising (104 vs. 94 FPS). AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT also appears to be definitively faster than NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti but struggles to match either of green team’s GPUs when ray tracing is entered into the equation.

“The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is just a week away from launch and our sources have provided us with a list of gaming and raytracing performance benchmarks for the upcoming RDNA 2 graphics card,” Wccftech wrote. “The results consist of various AAA gaming titles which were tested at 1440p which the card is primarily being positioned at.”

“[…] the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is definitely faster than the RTX 3060 Ti and also the RTX 3070 in several titles. When it comes to raytracing performance, the benchmarks show the RX 6700 XT losing against the RTX 3060 Ti in several titles while only showing gains in titles that are optimized around the RDNA 2 architecture such as Dirt 5, Fortnite, Godfall, and World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.”

AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card will be released on March 18 at an MSRP of $479. The GPU sports 40 Compute Units (2,560 Streaming Processors), 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM on a 192-bit memory interface, a game/boost clock of 2,424/2,581 MHz, and 96 MB of Infinity Cache. It also features a TBP of 230 watts.
