Competitor of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, the AMD Radeon 6800XT graphics card is also in shortage because of the high demand. The offers are therefore very rare on this card which does not lack assets, especially for those who like to play silently.
Radeon 6800 XT VS RTX 3080 GPU: The cards for 4K or 1440P at 144Hz
latest generation Radeon 6800XT
have more RAM than their Nvidia competitors. Thus, the 6800XT is equipped with no less than 16GB of GDDR6 RAM against “only” 10GB for the RTX 3080.
The other advantage of the Radeon over the RTX is the lower power consumption of about 30W and the noise under load, which is better contained overall. Clearly, on big games and when the card is running at full speed, the Radeon is overall quieter than the RTX, which may be important when choosing a PC to play with, for those who have a PC sitting on their desk or who don’t play with headphones on their ears.
In terms of performance, we’re on fairly similar levels with just a few percent less for the Radeon 6800XT compared to the RTX 3080. The gap widens a little more when Ray Tracing is activated, on which Nvidia keeps the advantage. But the RX 6800XT costs about 200€ less than an RTX 3080 at current prices, which is a definite argument in these times of high prices.
in some memory-intensive games without ray tracing, the Radeon 6800XT is faster than the RTX 3080:

The RX6800XT is compatible with AMD’s in-house technologies:
- FreeSync : allows to have more fluidity without tearing of the image when your screen is compatible
- Smart Access Memory: allows a better communication between the CPU and GPU, thanks to PCI Express for a gain of FPS between 2 and 12% depending on the game. But you need to be equipped with some Ryzen 3xxx CPUs or a Ryzen 5xxx CPU to take advantage of it.
- FidelityFX Super Resolution: this is the equivalent of Nvidia’s DLSS and allows you to have more FPS on compatible games while requiring less computing power
