The tool Basemark it is relatively new among benchmark applications and therefore not as widely used. However, it also helps us to make a comparison of this graphics card and give us an idea of ​​its performance with respect to the products offered by the green competition.

It should be noted that Basemark is identifying the RX 6800 as a RX 6900 XT. This is an error because the tool is identifying all the Navi 21 graphics as a ‘Radeon RX 6900 Series’ GPU, but with the drivers we can know that it is the RX 6800 that comes equipped with 16GB of VRAM memory.

The graphics card was tested with the drivers 27.20.14501.1206 which was released on November 5 and which supports the new RX 6000 graphics cards.

The test equipment is based on the AMD platform with the motherboard MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE and a processor Ryzen 9 3900X, which has 12 cores and 24 threads.

With this score, the AMD graphics card would be somewhat less than a RTX 2080 Ti, but it would be above the RTX 3070. The data is still good for AMD, considering that this is the most trimmed Navi 21 GPU.

Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT are going on sale this November 18. Stay tuned.
