AMD Radeon RX 6800
AMD started Radeon RX 6800 sales 18 November 2020 at a recommended price of $579. This is a high-end Navi / RDNA2 architecture desktop card based on 7 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 16 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 512.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. Two 8-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.
It provides outstanding gaming and benchmark performance at
percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of Radeon RX 6800. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good Radeon RX 6800 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Overall Radeon RX 6800 performance compared to nearest competitors among desktop video cards.
The nearest Radeon RX 6800's NVIDIA equivalent is GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which is faster by 5% and higher by 2 positions in our rating.
