In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary.

The RX 5700 XT has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 6900 XT. This results in the RX 5700 XT providing 12 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 5700 XT has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 6900 XT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5700 XT providing 4.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 6900 XT has not been released yet, so any comparisons on this page are likely to be unreliable.

The RX 6900 XT has 8192 MB more video memory than the RX 5700 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 6900 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary are the same, which means the RX 6900 XT and the RX 5700 XT have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB has 5120 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 6900 XT is 7322 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5700 XT is 3295. The RX 6900 XT having 4027 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 6900 XT delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5700 XT.

The Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB requires 238 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary requires 225 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 6900 XT and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 5700 XT. The RX 6900 XT requires 13 Watts more than the RX 5700 XT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 6900 XT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RX 5700 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the second (2.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 21 GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Navi 21 GPU features 80 Compute Units activated, offering 5120 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1605 MHz base clock speed and up to 2200 MHz with boost clock. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 3080.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1605 MHz, rising to 2200 MHz with boost clock enabled.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 16GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 16GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 238W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB competes with GeForce RTX 3080 10GB, which is available for $699.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 3080.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
