The new product has the best performance when purchased and only goes down as time goes by. Nowadays, you can experience the phenomenon that overturns such stereotypes with software updates, but in the GPU world, you can see nice performance improvements through various driver updates and optimizations. Some of them have a surprising pace of improvement …
3D Center has recently released a benchmark score that measures the performance of three AMD Radeon GPUs (RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, RX 6900 XT) and three NVIDIA GeForce GPUs (RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090). Comparative verification between December 2020 and June 2021. Comparing each confrontation judgment, it seems that the performance improvement rate of AMD’s Radeon RX series exceeded that of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX series, and even a reversal phenomenon occurred.
The comparison between the Radeon RX 6800 and the GeForce RTX 3070 clearly shows that the Radeon RX 6800 will be better off, and as of December 2020, the Radeon RX will be available in all three resolutions: Full HD, WQHD, and 4K. The 6800 XT was reported to be defeated by the GeForce RTX 3080, and the Radeon RX 6900 XT was reported to be defeated by the GeForce RTX 3090. After all, I had only the impression that GPU is a specialty of NVIDIA.
For example, in this graph, the benchmark score comparison result of Radeon RX 6800 XT vs GeForce RTX 3080 is displayed above, and the benchmark score comparison result of Radeon RX 6900 XT vs GeForce RTX 3090 is displayed below, both of which are in 2020 on the upper side. As of December, it is obvious that the GPU made by NVIDIA on the right side is touching with an overwhelming performance difference. However, when I compared it again six months later, in environments other than 4K resolution, AMD GPUs are strikingly good, and Radeon is also seen to outperform GeForce in performance.
There are various causes for this, such as systems that support AMD’s Smart Access Memory ( SAM ) and game software that tends to produce results that are more favorable to Radeon series GPUs, etc. Opinions are raised. However, it’s not that GeForce series GPUs haven’t seen performance improvements through driver optimizations and updates, such as support for Resizable BAR, over the same period. That said, AMD more of the GPU, to be up the Gugun and performance in full HD and WQHD resolution success that has been seeming to be the fact there is no doubt.
Of course, this comparison is just that AMD has reversed NVIDIA only under certain circumstances, still at 4K resolution, Radeon is not at all comparable to GeForce, and with ray tracing support, it is still It’s still a stance that AMD is chasing by far. However, the rise of the Radeon series has something that cannot be ignored these days, and whether or not NVIDIA can be the champion forever will still depend on the whereabouts of the conflict between the two companies.
