AMD has shared a handful of new GPU benchmark comparisons in an effort to convince enthusiasts why its Radeon graphics cards are a better choice than what NVIDIA has to offer with its GeForce RTX 30 and 40 Series. According to the benchmarks, the Radeon RX 6800 XT, Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 7900 XT, and Radeon RX 7900 XTX outclass their GeForce competitors in various fields, including gaming performance, better performance/dollar, and higher memory capacity, while a blog post titled “Are YOU an Enthusiast?” includes a section about the importance of memory, with AMD seemingly implying that NVIDIA is skimping on VRAM capacity with its GeForce GPUs. One comparison points out how the Radeon RX 7900 XTX features 20 GB of memory for $999, while the GeForce RTX 4080 features 16 GB of memory for $1,199. Yet another relating to peak memory usage in newer games would suggest that at least 12 GB of VRAM is required for proper 4K gaming. (AMD points out multiple times that it offers GPUs with 16 GB of VRAM starting at $499.)

From an AMD Community post:

Starting with the Radeon RX 6800 Series and Radeon RX 6900 Series, these are some of the top graphics cards at 1440p and 4K in your favorite games now and your future favorites. They have excellent raytracing performance, a history of strong performing, reliable drivers, and coupled with FidelityFX Super Resolution technology they can tackle the most demanding games out there. Against competition, they stand out with leadership performance, pricing, and features.

At the very top of our product family is our new Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics. These are the best AMD gaming graphics cards and the pinnacle of performance and features, with 1440p and 4K gaming above and beyond the rest of our GPU lineup. These GPUs are on a newer, more efficient AMD RDNA 3 architecture with enhanced raytracing performance in games as well as AI acceleration for both gaming and productivity applications. They also are the only graphics cards in the market that support DisplayPort 2.1, the latest display technology so your PC is future ready for next generation displays. Finally, the Radeon RX 7900 Series GPUs support AV1 encode, the newest standard for better video quality and faster streaming.

Against competition, these are the fastest cards with the most video memory you can get in their price bands.
