FC6 RX 6800 XT vs RTX 3080
With all these results we gained, we did want to go ahead and make a direct Radeon RX 6800 XT versus GeForce RTX 3080 performance comparison in Far Cry 6. The results were interesting, so we wanted to show what we found here when you put it all together.
Ultra Quality and HD Textures
In the above graph, we are looking at “Ultra” quality preset, and HD Textures turned on. This has no Ray Tracing or FSR, it’s just the base game at the Ultra with the HD Textures. The result is quite interesting, the Radeon RX 6800 XT and GeForce RTX 3080 are neck-and-neck in performance. This game performs very similarly between both, with no real discernable differences in performance. We see at most, a 4% performance difference at 4K with the RX 6800 XT taking the slight lead. Otherwise, the RTX 3080 has the lead by 3 FPS at 1080p, and they are exactly the same at 1440p.
Ultra Quality and HD Textures and FSR
The results above are the same settings as the top graph, but now we have just turned on FSR. Once again, performance is very close between them. THe RTX 6800 XT is just slightly faster at 1440p and 4K, but not enough to notice in-game, the gameplay experience is the same.
Maximum Game Settings
The above graph represents the maximum or highest game settings possible. We are running at “Ultra” quality with HD Textures, and DXR Reflections, and DXR Shadows. Once again the cards are so close in performance. At 4K they are identical in performance. Usually one has the advantage over the other in Ray Tracing performance, but not in this game, in this game, they are the same!
Maximum Settings with FSR
Lastly, here is the maximum game settings and now FSR has been enabled. We see the RX 6800 XT take the lead at 1080p and 1440p, but only by 5%. At 4K the RTX 3080 takes back the lead by 2%. Once again they are so close to each other.
