AMD launched the AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards, delivering powerhouse performance, incredibly life-like visuals, and must-have features that set a new standard for enthusiast-class PC gaming experiences. Representing the forefront of extreme engineering and design, the highly anticipated AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series includes the AMD Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards, as well as the new flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT – the fastest AMD gaming graphics card ever developed.
“The new AMD Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT graphics cards deliver world class 4K and 1440p performance in major AAA titles, new levels of immersion with breathtaking life-like visuals, and must-have features that provide the ultimate gaming experiences. I can’t wait for gamers to get these incredible new graphics cards in their hands,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD.
Built upon groundbreaking AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture, which is a new foundation for next-generation consoles, PCs, laptops and mobile devices, AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards are designed to deliver the optimal combination of performance and power efficiency.
According to AMD, “The RDNA 2 gaming architecture paves way to 2X higher performance in select titles with the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card as against the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card built on AMD RDNA architecture.
Moreover, AMD RDNA 2 leverages high-speed design methodologies to provide up to a 30 percent frequency boost at the same power level. It also comprises of new AMD Infinity Cache technology that offers up to 2.4X greater bandwidth-per-watt compared to GDDR6-only AMD RDNA-based architectural designs.
Looking at the other specification, AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards enables high-bandwidth PCIe 4.0 technology and features 16GB of GDDR6 memory to power the most demanding 4K workloads today and in the future. It also supports AMD Smart Access Memory, which is an exclusive feature of systems with AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processors, AMD B550 and X570 motherboards and Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. It gives AMD Ryzen processors greater access to the high-speed GDDR6 graphics memory, accelerating CPU processing and providing up to a 13-percent performance increase on a AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card in Forza Horizon 4 at 4K when combined with the new Rage Mode one-click overclocking setting.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards also offer AMD FidelityFX that is an open-source toolkit for game developers available on AMD GPUOpen. In order to add high-quality post-process effects that make games look beautiful while offering the optimal balance of visual fidelity and performance, AMD FidelityFX showcase an array of lighting, shadow and reflection effects that make it easier for developers.
It also elevated gaming experience owing to Microsoft DirectStorage Support for the DirectStorage API enables lightning-fast load times and high-quality textures by eliminating storage API-related bottlenecks and limiting CPU involvement.
As far as pricing and availability is concerned, AMD Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards are expected to be available from global etailers/retailers and on AMD.com starting November 18, 2020, for $579 and $649, respectively. The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT is expected to be available on December 8, 2020 for $999. On the other hand, AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT graphics cards are also expected to be available from AMD board partners, including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE and XFX, beginning in November 2020.
