AMD today announced specs and details of its new AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT, RX 6800, and RX 6900 XT GPUs, which will respectively compete with the RTX 3080, 3070, and 3090 from NVIDIA.

AMD's new GPUs will cost $580 for the RX 6800, $650 for the RX 6800 XT, and $1000 for the RX 6900 XT. Our video will cover specs, initial RDNA2 GPU architectural information, and features, but AMD didn't provide prices until the announcement. The prices put the 6800 just above the RTX 3070 in price, the 6800 XT just below the RTX 3080 in price, and the RX 6900 XT way below the RTX 3090 -- by about $500, although it does have less memory. AMD's new GPU release dates put them out before end of year (detailed in video), with new features like "Rage Mode," Smart Access Memory (SAM), and Infinity Cache up for initial explanation in this content. We expect additional RDNA2 architecture information sometime soon and got an overview of the basics today. AMD compatibility with existing ray tracing implementations (based on DXR 1.0 and DXR 1.1) also came up in the news, as NVIDIA has established itself as somewhat of an incumbent with RTX.
