AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12 GB Graphics Card Gaming Benchmarks at 1440p & Raytracing Performance at 1080p Leaked, Faster Than RTX 3070 In DX12 But Slower in RT Titles

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is just a week away from launch and our sources have provided us with a list of gaming and raytracing performance benchmarks for the upcoming RDNA 2 graphics card. The results consist of various AAA gaming titles which were tested at 1440p which the card is primarily being positioned at.

AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming & Raytracing Performance Benchmarks Leak Out - Faster Than RTX 3070 In DX12 Titles at 1440p But Slower in RT

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 series lineup including the RX 6700 and RX 6600 XT is going to be what most gamers will be getting for their gaming PCs. They will have an MSRP of less than $500 US but we are hearing reports of custom models going on sale for $600 US. That's still less than the $1000 US+ prices for the RX 6800 and RX 6900 series graphics cards that you are paying. If availability is there, then there's no doubt that gamers who have been waiting for months to buy a new graphics card will be purchasing them, even at such insane prices.

As you can see, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is definitely faster than the RTX 3060 Ti and also the RTX 3070 in several titles. When it comes to raytracing performance, the benchmarks show the RX 6700 XT losing against the RTX 3060 Ti in several titles while only showing gains in titles that are optimized around the RDNA 2 architecture such as Dirt 5, Fortnite, Godfall, and World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

Update: We just got even more benchmarks of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT with comparisons against the Radeon RX 5700 XT and GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. These benchmarks show what users could expect in terms of performance improvement when moving from a generation or two old graphics card. Also, we must point out that all of the benchmarks reported here are with SAM (Smart Access Memory) enabled.
