Please read our GPU Test Bench and Benchmarking Refresher for an explanation on our test system, procedures and goals.  Note that since the writing of that article, we have since further upgraded our CPU to a Ryzen 7 5800X now.  More information on our GPU testing can be found here.  Check out our KIT page where you can see all the components in our test system configuration for reviewing video cards.

  1. Nice to see the Nitro+ design still going strong (one of my favourite Radeon aib models).

  2. The question is if this card is worth the current $1100 asking price. I had the … opportunity .. of winning one of these on The Shuffle, I declined to purchase at that price.

    Although, it’s the only thing I’ve ever won on The Shuffle, so maybe I should have took what I could get, but I don’t think I’ll be too sorry letting it pass.

    Yeah, doesn’t matter how good of a model it it – it’s still a 6700 XT and nowhere near worth $1100.

    I’d say no. the 3070 beats this card out every time (just about) and can be had on the shuffle for much less..

    Now, I just need to win the shuffle… Still trying..

  5. I’m just wondering how big the earplugs Brent had to use to be in the same room as that thing on full tilt 😳
