AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT gaming benchmark gives impressive scores


APISAK has shared Ashes of the Singularity (AotS) gaming benchmark scores with a timely demonstration of just how much an improvement the Navi 22 XT-based Radeon RX 6700 XT appears to be over the previous-generation Navi 10 XT-based Radeon RX 5700 XT.


The concerns are there for low supplies when the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is launched on March 18 for a competitive price of US$479, those early birds who manage to snap up the card should be pleased with its gaming performance based on the results from AotS.


The Radeon RX 6700 XT uses its advantages over the RX 5700 XT (12 GB VRAM vs. 8 GB VRAM, 2321 MHz base vs. 1605 MHz, etc.) to produce overwhelming scores in the Crazy 1080p, Crazy 1440p, and Crazy 4K test runs. Figures are listed in the table below:



It can be seen, the higher the resolution gets, the grater the gains for Navi 22 XT GPU achieves over the RX 5700 XT with the Navi 10 XT GPU.


Each generation of GPU (or CPU) should offer decent performance gains over the predecessor, but these are noteworthy gains especially in 4K – the card also comes with hardware-based real-time ray-tracing abilities (40 ray accelerators). The RDNA 2-boasting RX 6700 XT can even produce a higher 4K score than the RX 5700 XT’s 1080p score at 7,600 points vs. 7,400 points. The recorded FPS rates are also assuring for the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, with a massive 94 FPS assessed in the Crazy 1080p run and a still very healthy 77 FPS expressed in the 4K benchmark. To keep the comparison fair, both graphics cards were paired off with an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor. The RX 6700 XT might strive against the Nvidia competition in terms of ray-tracing comparisons, and it will certainly need to operate well in 1440p and 4K gaming if it’s going to make a dent in the takings for the GeForce RTX 3070, but this is not a bad showing for the soon-to-be-released RDNA 2-based board.
