SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT and AMD Radeon RX 6800 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Video Cards flat on table top view

Introduction

Let’s put head-to-head the Radeon RX 6750 XT versus GeForce RTX 3070 versus Radeon RX 6800!

We reviewed our first AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT video card with the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT GAMING OC video card review recently.  In that review, we fully reviewed the new Radeon RX 6750 XT GPU and looked at how performance compares to the Radeon RX 6700 XT.  We wanted to find what kind of differences there were, and we also threw in a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti as a reference point. 

We also overclocked SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 6750 XT video card, pushing it to the max to see how much faster it could go, and the total performance difference compared to the Radeon RX 6700 XT.  We focused on the 1440p gameplay experience, including FSR, and also Ray Tracing performance at 1080p with FSR. 

There are two other GPUs that we need to compare the Radeon RX 6750 XT with, the GeForce RTX 3070 and the AMD Radeon RX 6800.  The AMD MSRP on the Radeon RX 6750 XT is $549, which is $50 more than the MSRP that the GeForce RTX 3070 was launched at in October of 2020 at $499. 

Looking at online pricing today, the cheapest GeForce RTX 3070s are going for about $579, while you can actually buy the Radeon RX 6750 XT at $549, at MSRP.  This means the GeForce RTX 3070 today, is a bit more expensive, even though the MSRP is lower.  So, we have to find out how the two compare, and which one provides the best gameplay experience for the price.

Second, since the Radeon RX 6800 is one step up from the Radeon RX 6750 XT, we already looked at how the RX 6750 XT compares to the RX 6700 XT, we have to know what stepping up to the Radeon RX 6800 will buy you.  By comparison, it is much more expensive, the Radeon RX 6800 is going for about $659 at the lowest, so the step up from Radeon RX 6750 XT to Radeon RX 6800 would cost you an extra $100 at the least.  But we still need to see what kind of performance gain you’d get.

So, join us, as we compare the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 6750 XT with the GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6800. 

Test Setup

Please read our GPU Test Bench and Benchmarking Refresher for an explanation of our test system, procedures, and goals.  Note that we now have a Ryzen 7 5800X in the system.  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.

We are using the motherboard’s current default BIOS settings on the latest official release BIOS.  We have enabled PCI-Express Resizable BAR in the motherboard BIOS.  This means we are utilizing Resizable BAR on NVIDIA GPUs and AMD Smart Access Memory on AMD GPUs in all of our testing.  We have enabled DOCP in the BIOS for the memory.

We are using a fresh install of Windows 11 Pro with the latest Windows Updates, and drivers installed including the latest chipset drivers from AMD.  We are using the “Best Performance” power profile in Windows Settings.  VBS is DISABLED and Game Mode is ENABLED.
