AMD has just now officially announced their next generation of Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards based on the RDNA2 architecture during the Where Gaming Begins Episode 2 event.
AMD recently announced their latest Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the new Zen 3 architecture, and they’ll officially be hitting shelves on November 5th. Until then though, we’ve seen some benchmarks for the Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X, as well as some comparisons between Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 3000 - and now we can add some pretty impressive Ryzen 7 5800X benchmarks to that list as well.
It’s here, it’s happening, nobody panic! AMD is finally set to announce their next generation of Radeon RX 6000 GPUs later today. Whilst we’ve had numerous rumors of performance benchmarks and the alleged specs, we’ll finally know if any of those reports were true.
We can now start counting down the hours until AMD officially reveals their Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, and whilst the world waits in baited breath to see what the Red Team has on offer to compete against Nvidia’s RTX 30 series cards, Nvidia also seems to be prepping their own new GPUs to try and compete against AMD with an RTX 3070 Ti rumored on the horizon.
At this point it feels like Nvidia are waiting for everyone else but them to officially announce the RTX 3060 Ti card. Many rumors have come out regarding the 3060 Ti, but we have yet to get any official specs on the GPU yet. Thankfully, we now seemingly do know the specs of the upcoming card thanks to a leak on the GPU-Z database.
Nvidia is getting ready for their upcoming RTX 3070 GPU launch this week, and before they’ve even officially announced it, the RTX 3060 Ti model is already available for preorder by Chinese retailers on Taobao. Whilst pricing isn’t listed in USD, the 3060 Ti model is expected to be around $400 and launch sometime in November.
Intel is getting ready to release their very first ever discrete graphics cards, the Intel Xe series of graphics cards marks an interesting time in the long-dominant CPU maker. The first GPU, the Intel Xe DG1, will be launching later this year whilst their second GPU, the Xe DG2, is reportedly along the lines of RTX 3070 performance, and will most likely be launching sometime next year.
With the dawn of the next generation of consoles, games, and PC hardware on our doorstep, there has never been a better time to upgrade our PCs in order to future proof performance. However, with the rising cost of PC hardware and the significantly higher requirements for next-gen games (partly because of ray tracing), how long do you reasonably expect a new GPU to meet your gaming needs?
We are just under 2 weeks away until AMD’s next generation of Ryzen processors officially launch, the Ryzen 5000 series looks to be AMD’s best lineup yet for their gaming CPUs, but AMD has now infamously jacked up the prices because of their dominance in the market. Zen 3 is certainly shaping up to be a great generation of processors, but which one of the new lineup looks like the best buy?
AMD is getting ready to launch their next generation of Ryzen 5000 CPUs based on the new Zen 3 architecture, and whilst we haven’t got any official 3rd party benchmarks or reviews yet for the new chips, Passmark has now crowned the new Ryzen 5 5600X CPU as the best performing single-core processor, beating the tremendous amount of competition from Intel at a fraction of the price.
As we gear up for the official announcement, more and more rumors surface regarding the upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series of GPUs by AMD. This time however, instead of focusing on the specs of RX 6000 series we have some alleged benchmarks for the Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card, and it looks to be pretty on par with RTX 3080 performance.
