A supposed leaked performance test suggests that the RX 6800 would be almost as fast as the RTX 3070 in Shadow of the Tomb Raider with active ray tracing. The interesting thing is that the AMD solution cannot take advantage of the performance increase that NVIDIA’s DLSS technology offers, but the RTX 3070, and yet it remains at a very similar level.
If this were confirmed, it would be clear that the performance of the RX 6800 would be superior to that of the RTX 3070, but even more than one would expect, since it would surpass it with active ray tracing and without having to resort to DLSS, that is , without any rescaling techniques to reduce pixel count and ray tracing impact at higher resolutions.
Take this leak with tweezers, because although it is interesting it has no official validity and has been highly questioned, not only by some elements related to the test equipment, but also by the fact that it does not fit with the previous leaks, which indicate that the RDNA 2 architecture will have ray tracing performance halfway between the RTX 20 and RTX 30. Some sources say that in real cases it could even be lower than that of the RTX 20.
The first Radeon RX 6000 will begin to arrive from November 18, so right now it is best to wait to see what AMD has really achieved and decide, once we are clear, which graphics card we want to buy.
