AMD is lowering prices on the RX 6800 and RX 6800XT in order to compete with Nvidia’s RTX 4070. While neither card can match the RTX 4070 in Ray Tracing performance, both trade blows with Nvidia’s newest “midrange” offering in traditional rasterization. Looking at the recent Tom’s Hardware RTX 4070 review, the 6800XT often beats the RTX 4070 with raster loads.
The RTX 4070 has debuted at $599 for those that are still in sticker shock. Currently, you can find RX 6800XTs going for $539, and RX 6800s going for $469 on New Egg. While neither AMD product has great Ray Tracing performance in most games, they do supports FSR 2 which, while...

I do love price war hard ball.

One thing I didn’t expect to find. Hogwarts Legacy can max out an 8gb VRAM buffer, and probably could on a 12 too. Kudos to AMD for the 16

I have dumped all my machines' Nvidia cards for AMD up to 6800XT now in my new work machine, Nvida's selling tactics are unscrupulous and have been for years when Apple dumped them like a bad apple (pun intended) The EVGA incident was just more proof of their bad selling tactics. Almost all of my machines are dual boot Mac/Win 11 which required AMD, but I do have a Mjolnir build that has an 11th gen I9, and still, I chose an AMD GPU for this machine which only runs Win 11. Only my laptops have Nvidia Graphics, both are Clevo variants. The ridiculous size of the 4000 series Nvidia cards and the melting power delivery would never make me choose one of these cards for a build.
