AMD’s RX 6800 is without doubt one of the greatest worth high-end graphics playing cards in the marketplace – and immediately you’ll be able to decide up this GPU with Starfield Premium Version for simply $430 at Amazon US, down from $490.
This explicit mannequin is the XFX Speedster SWFT319 variant, which comes with a ‘city’ and ‘gritty’ naming scheme (that I stay mystified by… why 319?) and a cool triple-fan design. XFX aren’t absolutely the best-loved AMD GPU maker, however their designs have at all times labored nicely in my expertise, and there is definitely sufficient thermal heft right here to make sure a cool and quiet expertise for this 250W card. This mannequin comes with reference clocks, rated as much as 2105MHz enhance, however as with different trendy GPUs will enhance past this if thermals and energy budgets permit, so you are not lacking out in comparison with an ‘OC’ mannequin actually.
By way of precise efficiency, the RX 6800 is a good fit for 1080p and 1440p gaming, however will stretch to 4K with RT disabled in lots of titles. Again in early 2021, Katharine’s assessment revealed ~60fps or larger averages at 4K that in contrast nicely with Nvidia’s RTX 3070 within the likes of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Murderer’s Creed Valhalla, Horizon Zero Daybreak, Monster Hunter World and Metro Exodus, although it fell behind its competitor in Whole Warfare: Three Kingdoms and Last Fantasy 15.
Sadly, RT efficiency in these crop of titles (the place accessible) is far worse than the RTX 3070, and plenty of video games additionally assist DLSS moderately than AMD’s FSR 2, resulting in the 3070 having a stable lead in these titles. With RT enabled, the RX 6800 is extra of a 1440p card, which is a disgrace – however relying in your tastes, it might be a whole non-issue.
In any case, Starfield is rumoured to solely include FSR 2, so you will not have any such points within the AMD-sponsored title… and also you get a free copy of the premium version of the sport, which is nice.
That virtually does it for now, so I hope you discovered this beneficial and have a terrific weekend!
