AMD Radeon RX 6800 Benchmark Leaks Out, Beats GeForce RTX 3070

It seems that the AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics card benchmarks were leaked in the Basemark database recently. This GPU was accompanied by an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor with the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard, so it did not have any access to AMD Smart Access Memory technology.

As we can see in the test application below, it incorrectly identifies the GPU of the Navi 21 family as AMD Radeon RX 6900 Series. But detailed data on the test system (look at the GPU Driver line in the video card description) suggests that the results refer specifically to the AMD Radeon RX 6800 – the base model of the series.

Let’s go to what matters: the AMD Radeon RX 6800 reached a score of 14635 points under the Vulkan API, thus tying with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (which performs like the GeForce RTX 3070) which has a score of 14691 points.

Under the Vulkan API, it scored 13,846 points (vs 14,691 points for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti), and it ranks above the GeForce RTX 3070 (13,662 points). Thus, the test results basically justify its main purpose, that is Radeon RX 6800 seems to be faster than the RTX 3070.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800, with 3840 Stream Processors at a Turbo frequency of 2105 MHz and 16 GB of GDDR6 memory at a price of $579 promises to be between the GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3080, although in terms of performance it will be much more close to the most powerful model with 10GB of GDDR6 memory, and it even promises to outperform in the odd game, like Battlefield V at 2K resolution.

Recall that sales of Radeon RX 6800 video card will start very soon on November 18.
