Priced at $580 RX 6800 with 16GB of VRAM is a key feature of the card. At higher resolutions and detail settings, performance can bottleneck without sufficient GPU memory. AMD's marketers often cherry pick obscure games with high res/settings, the details of which are rarely disclosed, then compare the results with cards that have less memory. In that scenario, the cards with less memory look weaker than they would at 1080p. The Card will struggle to compete, partly because it lacks RTX+DLSS which is required for the best gaming experience in class leading titles such as Cyberpunk 2077.
Gaming on Nvidia RTX 3070 priced at $500 with the combination of RTX+DLSS delivers stunning graphics that are several tiers higher than both AMD's best discrete GPUs and the upcoming consoles. In terms of real world performance, Nvidia’s 3000 series has more or less put AMD’s Radeon group in checkmate.
I have both cards and for my personal work flow and low level gaming I can't really say I think one card is better than the other. I will say I've had better luck with the Nvidia Drivers/Software. The only other gripe I have with the AMD is that it's a reference design which has a tiny heatsink and it just ejects tons of heat. But RTX/DLSS has made no difference in my life.
AMD every time..
Anyone else notice OP post is mostly copy/paste from ubm.
RTX OFC! AMD dont have hardware encoder( AMF is piece of sh.. - this is not hw!!!) and other features like rtx sound noise susp etc.OBS have nice plugins for Nvidia cards like streamfx etc.AMD cards for streaming and video content = bigest trash on the world!Never again buy amd gpu.
