The AMD Radeon 6000 series uses the RDNA2 architecture. As a joint effort between AMD's GPU team and the Zen CPU team, these Radeon video cards may finally catch up to the high-end NVIDIA GPUs in the market.

The RX 6000 series' RDNA2 architecture is also debuting across next-gen consoles as well. It will be the backbone in graphics across consoles, AMD GPUs, as well as AMD APUs. AMD said that it will have the latest technologies like ray tracing and DirectX 12 Ultimate support.

For PC users, RDNA2 will be first seen in AMD's enthusiast-level video cards. These RX 6000 series will be using the Navi 21, the first RDNA2 GPU. As mentioned earlier, these are the Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT, and 6900 XT which is meant to match up to NVIDIA's RTX 3070, 3080, and 3090 respectively.

The most powerful among the three is the RX 6900 XT. AT USD 999, it is also the most premium choice. The Navi 21 GPU will be fully-enabled here making it very hard to produce. It has 26.8 billion transistors with 80 CUs and 128MB of the new Smart Infinity Memory Cache. It has a game clock speed of 2,015MHz and a boost clock speed of 2,250MHz. It has 16GB GDDR6 VRAM with memory clock speeds of 16Gbps. It also only uses 300W of total board power compared to NVIDIA's top cards that draw 350W.

Next in line, the RX 6800 XT is still using Navi 21 even though it's a bit trimmed down. It has 72 CUs and the same clock speeds as the 6900 XT. It also has 16GB of GDDR6 memory at 16Gbps. It also sports 128GB Infinity Cache and 300W TBP. It is priced at USD 650. This the card that is meant to match up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.

Last but not the least, the RX 6800 is also using Navi 21 further trimmed down. It has 60 CUs and clock speeds of 1,755MHz (game clock) and 1,905MHz (boost clock). It also has 16GB of GDDR6 memory at 16Gbps. It also sports 128GB Infinity Cache and 250W TBP. It is priced at USD 579. This the card that is meant to match up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070.

As you see above, the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series is going blow for blow and even outperforming NVIDIA's latest video cards both in 4K and 1440p gaming. However, take these graphs with a grain of salt since it does not include any benchmarks with ray tracing on.

Infinity Cache

The new Infinity Cache will help in terms of improving gaming performance. AMD is not sharing much information but it was described as similar to L3 cache on a CPU. It will help in loading large operations quicker than when it is pulled out of the VRAM.
