AMD Just Announced Its New Graphics Card And It's An Absolute Beast

AMD enters the GPU debate with a monster of a card.

As the console wars have been battling on, PC players have sat quite happily in their own camp minding their own business. Rather than trying to get a PlayStation 5 pre-order, they have been desperately attempting to find available Nvidia 30 Series graphics cards. The 3080 has been a favourite for many but the top tier card to date is the RTX 3090 - which AMD has just challenged.

Today AMD stepped up to the plate to show what it was been working on behind the scenes. Many thought that the company simply couldn't compete with Nvidia's GPUs but upon the announcement of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series, that couldn't be further from the truth.

AMD's CEO Dr Lisa Su revealed the three next-gen graphics cards and they're beauties. First, we have the RX 6800 which is priced at $579, then the RX 6800 XT at $649, before the top tier GPU the RX 6900 XT which is priced at only $999.

I say only because AMD is saying this card is just as good, if not better for some games than Nvidia's 3090. The only difference is that the 3090 is priced at $1,499 - $400 more expensive than the 6900 XT.

Although the GPU hasn't been tested by the public yet, AMD shows an infographic of frames per second reached on each card and the results are impressive.

Where AMD's RX 6900 XT falls behind on games like The Division 2, Doom Eternal, and Resident Evil 3 - it performs better than the 3090 when playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Gears 5, and Forza Horizon 4.


If these stats are accurate, then these could be very competitive for the RTX 30 series from Nvidia - and looking at the rest of the line up also shows AMD undercutting the price for about the same performance against all of Nvidia's GPUs.

So, the lesson here is that if any of you are still waiting on getting your hands on the RTX 30 Series, it might be time to at least think about changing teams for this generation of GPUs. More details at going to follow on AMD's website.
