Shortly after AMD officially announced their next-gen Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, many were quick to point out the lack of ray tracing performance and official benchmarks. So far the RX 6000 series looks to be pretty good at 4K traditional rasterization performance, but recently leaked ray tracing benchmarks cast doubt on AMD’s new GPUs.
Update: According to another Chinese Media site, Nvidia has decided to delay the RTX 3060 Ti launch to December 2nd. It’s currently unclear as to why the delay was made (if you can even call it a ‘delay’ since it was never officially announced), but the new date is set as the launch date, meaning the RTX 3060 Ti will probably be announced soon before.
Okay, imagine this: it’s nearly Halloween, so you have a long night of watching scary movies and playing scary video games. When you wake up in the morning, half asleep and still dreaming, you turn on your PC and… ZAP! Your CPU gets fried. This is probably the worst time because all you want to do is catch up on the newest episode of The Mandalorian, but now you have to go online and find a brand new processor.
Now we don’t visit this debate very often as we don’t want to encourage mindless fanboyism, but we are interested in exploring if the manufacturer loyalty has diminished as we all get wiser and look to buy whatever works for us at the moment, or do we still have loyal hardware camps?
AMD recently unveiled their next-gen Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards based on the new RDNA2 architecture. But whilst some performance benchmarks show traditional rasterization performance on par with Nvidia’s RTX 30 series GPUs, it looks like AMD’s equivalent don’t handle the ray tracing performance quite as well.
AMD has just now officially announced their next generation of Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards based on the RDNA2 architecture during the Where Gaming Begins Episode 2 event.
AMD recently announced their latest Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the new Zen 3 architecture, and they’ll officially be hitting shelves on November 5th. Until then though, we’ve seen some benchmarks for the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X, as well as some comparisons between Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 3000 - and now we can add some pretty impressive Ryzen 7 5800X benchmarks to that list as well.
It’s here, it’s happening, nobody panic! AMD is finally set to announce their next generation of Radeon RX 6000 GPUs later today. Whilst we’ve had numerous rumors of performance benchmarks and the alleged specs, we’ll finally know if any of those reports were true.
We can now start counting down the hours until AMD officially reveals their Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, and whilst the world waits in baited breath to see what the Red Team has on offer to compete against Nvidia’s RTX 30 series cards, Nvidia also seems to be prepping their own new GPUs to try and compete against AMD with an RTX 3070 Ti rumored on the horizon.
At this point it feels like Nvidia are waiting for everyone else but them to officially announce the RTX 3060 Ti card. Many rumors have come out regarding the 3060 Ti, but we have yet to get any official specs on the GPU yet. Thankfully, we now seemingly do know the specs of the upcoming card thanks to a leak on the GPU-Z database.
Nvidia is getting ready for their upcoming RTX 3070 GPU launch this week, and before they’ve even officially announced it, the RTX 3060 Ti model is already available for preorder by Chinese retailers on Taobao. Whilst pricing isn’t listed in USD, the 3060 Ti model is expected to be around $400 and launch sometime in November.
