AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is an AMD GPU that was released in November 2020. This GPU is amazing at gaming with a score of 116% in our PC benchmark.

The Radeon RX 6800 XT has 16 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 500 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU core runs at a frequency of 2015 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 2250 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 6800 XT 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.

Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 300 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
