    The 6800XT runs Cyperpunk 2077 at 23fps using 1440p Max RT settings, for comparison, an RTX 3080 is usually in the 40s at those settings.

    Those are Medium RT tests, with Ultra RT NVIDIA cards are 80% faster.

    Was the psycho settings tested? My german isn't strong enough to figure it all out. Google translate doesn't seem to work proper with the page.

    That's not as bad as I thought it would be. Maybe next gen things will get closer.

    Its a bloodbath. Would be academically interesting to see how both 1st gen RT attempts compare with each others (6900xt vs 2080ti).

    I'd say the 2080Ti would have a lead due to DLSS.
    But then again using all 4 RT effects at the same time in Cyberpunk 2077 is the most demanding settings of any game so far, so AMD's "RT-light" solution get punished hard as opposed to games only using one RT effect (most often shadows or reflection, the cheapest RT effects).

    2080Ti would be around 3070 while providing better 1Ps due to more VRAM.

    I think at Medium settings there is only RT shadows and some RT lighting, no reflections. So the divergences makes sense.

    So the 2080Ti beats the 6900XT...even without DLSS.

    No, just Ultra settings, Psycho is even more brutal.

    NVIDIA's lead varies from 60% to 80% on Ultra and that's without DLSS2. Psycho settings is even higher and more brutal.

    On another note, Tencent developers just outlined the challenges they face when applying RT to their new 3rd person shooter game, Synced Off Planet. It's an interesting read.

    A very well put together video comparing RT performance between 3080 and 6800XT in several RT titles.

    Minecraft:
    2K: 3080 is 230% faster
    4K: 3080 is 240% faster

    Control:
    2K: 3080 is 53% faster
    4K: 3080 is 72% faster

    Call Of Duty Black Ops:
    2K: 3080 is 58% faster
    4K: 3080 is 63% faster

    Watch Dogs Legion:
    2K: 3080 is 36% faster
    4K: 3080 is 50% faster

    Battlefield V:
    2K: 3080 is 46% faster
    4K: 3080 is 56% faster

    Metro Exodus:
    2K: 3080 is 26% faster
    4K: 3080 is 34% faster

    Shadow Of Tomb Raider:
    2K: 3080 is 43% faster
    4K: 3080 is 44% faster

    Godfall:
    2K: 6800XT is 4% faster
    4K: 6800XT is 5% faster

    Interestingly, Metro Exodus shows the least difference between NVIDIA and AMD, I am curious whether that will remain the case once the new updated Metro Exodus with it's multiple RT effects gets released. We also have Godfall with it's minimalistic approach to screen space RT shadows being virtually a wash.

    45 game benchmark 6700XT vs 3070.

    6700XT has no business costing over 400$. It's a complete reversal of the status quo of the last 8 years. You now have a much better chance of a notably better experience on the Nvidia GPU, when not CPU limited.

    Err, what? It's a lot closer to competitors $500 product than their $400 product, how on earth doesn't it have business costing over $400? o_O
