AMD Radeon RX 6800

The Radeon RX 6800 is a GPU from AMD released in 2020. This chip has a very good gaming score at 95% in our GPU benchmark.

The Radeon RX 6800 has 16 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 500 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 6800 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1815 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 2105 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 6800 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 250W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
