SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB Review
SAPPHIRE Nitro+ RX 6700 XT03/18/2021
The Wccftech Test Bench
We used the following test system for comparison between the different graphics cards. The latest drivers that were available at the time of testing were used from AMD and NVIDIA on an updated version of Windows 10. All games that were tested were patched to the latest version for better performance optimization for NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.
*Note on Resizable BAR. The GeForce RTX 3060 marks the beginning of the rollout for NVIDIA with Resizable BAR support. With Radeon supporting it through Smart Access Memory and my test bench is fully compliant with both, going forward this feature will be enabled through the testings. So in this review and future reviews, it will be noted that the results are with that feature enabled.
