In a blog post, AMD has detailed the prowess of its RDNA 3 graphics cards in the latest ray-traced games. The Radeon RX 7900 XTX delivers nearly 100 FPS across eighteen titles at the highest quality preset with ray-tracing enabled and FSR 2 to balance it out. Spider-Man, Returnal, Dead Space, and Forsaken average above 100 FPS at the maximum RT preset with FSR 2 set to “Balanced“:
We wouldn’t recommend the “Performance” Mode as it leads to a loss of detail. The “Quality” mode offers the best quality but less performance uplift. The “Balanced” mode is optimal as it renders clear textures with an ample FPS uplift. It’s worth noting that the Radeon RX 7900 XTX costs $999, while its NVIDIA rivals are priced at $1,199 (RTX 4080) and $1,599 (RTX 4090). You lose out on DLSS 3 and raw ray-tracing prowess, but it shouldn’t be an issue for most.
The $849 Radeon RX 7900 XT is a smidge slower than its XTX sibling, averaging 100 FPS across most titles at the highest ray-tracing preset with FSR 2 set to “Balanced”. The two exceptions are Dying Light 2 and Hitman 3, which net 65 and 63 FPS on average.
And lastly, we’ve got Cyberpunk 2077. Unfortunately, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX averages less than 60 FPS at the Ultra RT preset, even with FSR 2. The “Balanced” mode nets you 48 FPS, while “Performance” results in a lackluster 59 FPS. An important point to note here is that AMD hasn’t provided the lows, sure to be much less than the averages, leading to a mixed experience in Cyberpunk 2077.
