AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT Crushes the NVIDIA RTX 3080: Wins in 9/10 Games at 1440p

AMD has released further benchmarks of its Big Navi graphics cards, showing a notable performance lead over the NVIDIA competition, especially at 1440p. Before we begin, please keep in mind that these tests were conducted with the GPUs paired with a Ryzen 9 5900X, and Smart Memory Access (SAM) enabled for the Radeon parts:

As you can see, the Radeon RX 6800 XT and 6900 XT deal a crushing defeat to both the RTX 3080 and 3090 (at 1440p). They’re faster than their competitors in nine out of ten games, with the RTX 3080 eking out a win in just one title (The Division 2). The RTX 3090 (despite being $500 pricier than the 6900 XT) fails to top the chart in even a single game.

At 4K, the GeForce RTX 30 cards on account of their higher bandwidth perform somewhat better, but the RX 6800 XT and 6900 XT still claim wins in five out of ten games, managing a draw in two and losing to the Ampere parts in three. Overall, the playing field is much more leveled at 4K while at 1440p, the NVIDIA cards don’t really stand much of a chance without DLSS. Then again, DLSS is mainly relevant at 4K, so that’s a moot point.
