We are officially facing an interesting competition that test the new graphics cards of the two major manufacturers Nvidia and AMD. And, from the comments to several articles on this topic, we realized that there are defenders of both brands.
However, according to 17 different reviews, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 is faster than AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT.
The presentation of the new graphics from Nvidia and AMD came to 'cheer up' this segment. And even consumers who do not realize or do not attach great importance to this market, are enthusiastic about these products because they are true machines in the field of graphics hardware.
We recall that Nvidia brought the GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 cards, while AMD responded with the Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT. It should also be noted that, for our readers, Nvidia is the best manufacturer of graphics chips.
AMD RX 6800 XT is slower than Nvidia's RTX 3080
In the announcement of the new cards from AMD, it was found that, by the characteristics, the Radeon RX 6800 XT would compete directly with the GeForce RTx 3080 from Nvidia.
In this sense, several tests and analyzes have already been carried out and allowed to reach some conclusions. The following data includes 224 benchmarks from 17 international analyzes carried out by sites such as Computer Base, Igor's Lab, Tom Hardware, PC Gamer and Guru3D.
According to the analysis performed on the two graphics cards, Nvidia's RTX 3080 performs 7.4% better than AMD's competitor RX 6800 XT.
According to 3DCenter.org, these results include only tests done in 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). In addition, Ray Tracing or Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) was not used.
As far as cost / performance is concerned, the RTX 3080 costs $ 699, while the RX 6800 XT will cost $ 649. In other words, it is also a difference of about 7.4%.
In turn, in the face to face of the Radeon RX 6800 with GeForce RTX 3070, the AMD board is ahead with 8.1% higher performance in 4K. However, Nvidia's board is 15% cheaper, costing $ 499 compared to its rival's $ 579.
