In the Basemark database, the test results of the new AMD Radeon RX 6800 (Big Navi) video card were found, which will begin to be sold to users in the coming days.
It should be noted that Basemark lists the AMD Radeon RX 6800 as the Radeon RX 6900, as it is based on the same Navi 21 GPU. The unit was tested on the X570 platform. Test configuration included MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard and AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core processor. The system used the latest driver version (27.20.14501.1206).
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 (not XT) graphics card scored 14,635 points in the DX12 API test and 13846 points in the Vulkan API based on the available data. Thus, the novelty is slightly ahead of the competing model NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, scored 13662 points in the Vulkan API and 13368 points in the DX12 API. The previous generation GeForce RTX 2080 Ti scores 14089 points with the DirectX 12 API and 14691 points with the Vulkan API.
Based on these data, we can conclude that the new Radeon RX 6800 video card is about 7-8% faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 and 4% ahead of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in the test. Simultaneously, the new product provides a result approximately comparable to the GeForce RTX 3070 in the Vulkan API. Thus, based on this test’s data, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 is a worthy competitor to the GeForce RTX 3070 model, which is sold for $ 80 more in retail, although it offers less video memory. Simultaneously, the AMD video card has a higher TBP at 250 W versus 220 W for the GeForce RTX 3070 model.
It should also be noted that the AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics card has excellent overclocking potential. Its graphics processor frequency can be increased up to 2.5 GHz, which should provide a significant increase in performance. Recall that last week. The Radeon RX 6800 XT model demonstrated the same overclocking potential. With this overclocking, the video card demonstrates an average power consumption of about 208 W, and the peak power consumption reached 269 W, slightly exceeding the declared TBP figure. In this mode, the GPU temperature was 60 degrees Celsius. At some moments, it reached 63 degrees Celsius. The CapFrameX analytics collection tool only ran for 60 seconds.

A screenshot from GPU-z shows that with prolonged use of an AMD Radeon RX 6800 video card with an average GPU frequency of 2.2-2.3 GHz, the temperature rises to 74 degrees Celsius, and the hot-spot temperature is 95 degrees.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics card will go on sale on November 18 for a suggested retail price of $579.
