In addition to the Zen 3 desktop CPU reveal, AMD also teased the new Radeon RX 6000 series GPU. You’ll have to wait until October 28th for the full announcement, but in this short teaser, we get a preview of some benchmarks running Borderlands 3, Gears of War 5, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019). The company aims to compete with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080, and at least one game, Borderlands 3, is right on par. Read more for the video and additional information.
Gears of War 5 was benchmarked at 73fps, which means AMD is off NVIDIA by a few percent, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare gets 88fps at 4K looks. One other rumor floating around is these new graphics cards could utilize AMD’s new Infinity Cache technology to help with bandwidth given the smaller 256-bit bus interface that the RX 6900 XT series is expected to adopt.
