AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT review roundup: a niche purchase
See the original posting on The Verge
AMD has released the newest member of its Radeon RX 6000 series: the Radeon RX 6900 XT. The card is based on the same Navi 21 silicon as the rest of the RX 6000 series so far and is being billed as the fastest Radeon card yet. According to reviews, itâs a step up from previous generations when it comes to performance, but not worth its $1,000 price tag for most consumers.
Reviews agree that this card is a racehorse. âThis is one blistering-fast GPU,â concludes Brad Chacos of PCWorld, while Hot Hardwareâs Marco Chiappetta dubbed it âthe most powerful Radeon ever.â In Tomâs Hardwareâs testing, the RX 6900 XT averaged 85fps across its 13-game testing suite at 4K resolution and ultra settings and 136.1fps at 1440p.
