First user tests Radeon RX 6950 XT - super flagship or disappointment of the year from TG

First user tests Radeon RX 6950 XT - super flagship or disappointment of the year from TG

If you follow the computer world news, you should know that AMD has not pleased its fans in recent years.
Engineers have made several unsuccessful attempts to release a high-performance graphics chip, but each time everything crashed against the reality of modern game engines.
As it turned out, the HBM high speed video memory does not solve anything at all, that is why every announcement of the next generation was perceived with increasing share of skepticism.
And Radeon RX 6000 line was not an exception, because only the biggest optimists could believe that the flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT would be able to compete with the GeForce RTX 3090.
Despite a series of unfortunate decisions, we still got a decent product.
It was not without its flaws, because AMD never managed to offer effective ray tracing technology.
And yet, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is much cheaper than its direct competitor, and the 7000 series is coming, the performance of which promises to secure the red leader's jersey.AdvertisementWhether the rumors are true about this, we will know this fall, but for now let's go back to what is happening in the graphics card market right now.
If you remember, a pumped-up GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics chip recently went on sale.
He put on his shoulder long resisted green Radeon RX 6900 XT, but the price difference between graphics chips is up to two times, which means a few extra percent cost NVIDIA extremely expensive.
AMD didn't stand aside and decided to release a faster flagship, which instead of 16Gb/s video memory got the same amount at 18Gb/s.
Before the announcement it seemed that there is going to be a clash of giants, only in the official press release we saw that Radeon RX 6950 XT is not going to compete with GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, but GeForce RTX 3090 is frankly slow in the diagram.
This sort of thing raised questions from the Testing Games team.
Bloggers took three graphics cards and ran them through popular tests.
Unfortunately, GeForce RTX 3090 Ti could not be found, so we have to limit ourselves to the available data.
All tests were done in 4K resolution, settings are close to maximum, Core i9-12900K was used as a processor.
Below you can see the indicators grouped in a table.Usually we summarize with averages for each video card, but this time the whole thing is spoiled by the results in Hitman 3.
The thing is that absolutely everywhere the difference between graphics chips is linear, while in this game the new Radeon RX 6950 XT has a huge lead over its rival in the form of GeForce RTX 3090.
That is why the calculations on the average performance will not fit the overall picture, which is what we will talk about.
As you can see, in most games the Radeon RX 6950 XT still lags behind the GeForce RTX 3090.
In fact, the difference is minimal and often not more than a few percent, but the gap is there and the victory is on the side of NVIDIA.
If you came here just for that percentage expecting to see the victory of AMD, then we hasten to disappoint you.In some projects Radeon RX 6900 XT strengthened the leadership, while in most projects it could not get ahead of the green flagship.
Well, considering the fact that there are GeForce RTX 3090 Ti on sale, we have nothing to please fans of Lisa Su yet.
And in general it is worth remembering that there are several games in which Radeon RX 6950 XT shows results on the level of GeForce RTX 3090 and even higher, but many of them are not included in the list of this test.
As for the confrontation that will unfold in the fall of 2022, AMD's victory is not as obvious as some people think.
The problem is that there are rumors of an NVIDIA flagship with 24Gbps video memory.
AMD with its 18 Gbit/s will not look serious on its background.
If you are just happy with one of the fastest graphics cards on the market which you can buy 2 times cheaper than competitors' superflagship, then Radeon RX 6950 XT will seem like a gift of fate.
But in case you were expecting an uncompromising victory, the Radeon RX 6950 XT really looks disappointing.For the post rewardedThis material is written by a site visitor and it is rewarded.
