After a month-long wait since Nvidia unveiled the GeForce RTX 20 series, we can finally bring you our performance review. As you all know by now, we have a new flagship graphics card in the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with pricing starting at $1,000 for partner cards and $1,200 for the Founders Edition version, we're talking Titan X money here. Meanwhile the vanilla RTX 2080 is landing at $700 for partner models and $800 for the Founders Edition. Later next month we'll also get the RTX 2070 at $500 or $600 for the FE card. This means gamers are looking at somewhere between $100 and $300 more for an equivalent model from the previous generation. On top of that, the Founders Edition models carry a further $100 to $200 price premium, and just know these will be the only models in stock from time to time.

It's no secret that there's a component shortage ravaging the PC building market, with demand exceeding supply by a long shot due to a boatload of depressing factors I'm not going to get into here. Currently, thanks to this fact, there's a less-than-useful PC sitting in my cupboard, with a great big hole where the GPU used to be.

I'm now faced with the harsh reality that once my RTX 2070 Super test rig is ripped away from me and sent back into the office, I'll be left totally GPU-less. I'm sure many of you are in a similar position—trying to acquire a new graphics card at a time where that feels almost impossible. Seems like game streaming services could be the best way to get us through. So, can I replace my physical gaming rig with one in the cloud until I'm able to buy a new graphics card? Apparently, yes!

We've had the card in our labs for a while, and today we can finally show you how the new GPU performs. In essence, AMD has claimed 3080-like performance at a $50 discount with the 6800 XT, while offering considerably more VRAM at 16 GB vs. the GeForce's 10GB. The 6800 XT is based on the new RDNA2 architecture using TSMC’s 7nm process. The GPU packs 4608 cores, 288 TMUs and 128 ROPs across 72 CUs. The cores clock at up to 2250 MHz, and with 16GB of 16Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit wide memory bus, it has 512GB/s of memory bandwidth to play with. It’s rated at 300 watts TBP, and of course, supports PCI Express 4.0. There are some new features as well such as ray tracing support, 128MB of AMD Infinity Cache and Shared Access Memory.
