Today, AMD unveiled its Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards.

The AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series includes the Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and the new flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT, which the company calls its “fastest gaming graphics card ever developed.”

The Radeon RX 6800 XT is said to be on par with Nvidia’s RTX 3080.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards are built upon AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture, which is a new foundation for next-generation consoles, PCs, laptops, and mobile devices.

The cards promise 2X higher performance and up to 54% higher performance-per-watt compared to AMD RDNA-based graphics cards.

It also includes new AMD Infinity Cache technology that delivers up to 2.4X greater bandwidth-per-watt versus GDDR6-only AMD RDNA-based architectural designs.

The cards also feature high-bandwidth PCIe 4.0 technology and 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The Radeon RX 6000 Series was designed to “power the most demanding AAA games” at 4K resolution and 1440p performance with the highest possible settings.

AMD Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards are expected to be available beginning November 18 for $579 and $649, respectively.

The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT is expected to be available on December 8 for $999.
