Radeon RX vs Nvidia RTX

AMD claims the AMD Radeon RX 6000-series can beat both the Nvidia RTX 3080 and RTX 3090

You’ll need to activate the “Rage Mode” overclocking feature

By the looks of the benchmarks, the new RX 6800 XT can trade blows with the Nvidia RTX 3080 in a host of top games, with all the settings maxed out. We’re looking at some clear wins, too, with games like Forza Horizon 4 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare pumping out more frames per second than the rival Nvidia cards according to AMD’s claims.

At first glance, the AMD’s RX 6900 XT card looks pretty beefy up against Nvidia’s RTX 3090, taking the crown at 4K in Forza Horizon 4 and Battlefield 5. But on closer inspection, it appears these numbers only account for when AMD’s new signature “Rage Mode” easy overclocking feature is enabled. We’ll have to test it ourselves to get a better idea of its potential.

The bottom line for now is that it looks like the RX 6000-series should be able to deliver a competitive gaming experience at 1440p or 4K.
