Radeon Series RX 6000 Raytracing numbers posted by AMD, match RTX 3070
General News

If you watched the presentation on the Radeon RX 6800 and 6900 XT series yesterday, you will have noticed that AMD did mention these cards would support DirectX Raytracing, however not much was said about it otherwise in relation to performance. AMD however later in the evening revealed its first results in the official DirectX Ray-Tracing benchmark on its website. Its a bit of a nonsensical test, but one from Microsoft giving us an idea of what to expect when initiating DXR on the new 6800/6900 graphics cards. This is a theory, but we think the test was conducted with an RX 6800 XT (579 USD), so that card would level with RTX 3070. Obviously, these results do not directly reflect the performance of AMD graphics in games, so we will have to wait a few weeks to find out.
