AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards compete with NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series. Custom RX 6800 cards have arrived in Nepal for some time now. In this post, we will look at the specifications, features, price, and availability of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards in Nepal.
AMD Radeon RX 6800 Overview:
AMD has managed to fit in 26.8 billion transistors in the Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards. It comes with 3840 stream processors, 60 compute units and an equal amount of Ray Accelerators. It boasts a game clock (base) speed of 1815MHz which can scale up to 2105MHz when boosted.
The GPU is listed with peak single and half-precision computer performance of 16.17 TFLOPs and 32.33 TFLOPs, respectively. Getting to memory, it comes with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM with a memory speed of 16Gbps. It uses a 256-bit memory interface that has up to 512GB/s bandwidth.
AMD RDNA 2 microarchitecture
RDNA 2 microarchitecture underpins the AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards. It employs the same 7nm FinFet process as its predecessor. All of the RDNA 2’s improvements, like those of the Zen 3, are the result of a new architectural design.
Even without a new manufacturing process, AMD has managed to improve performance per watt by up to 54% over the first-gen RDNA. A large part of that efficiency stems from AMD’s ability to clock the cores 30% faster without increasing power consumption.
Infinity Cache is a new feature on the RX 6000 lineup including the AMD RX 6800. It is in addition to the traditional L0, L1, and L2 cache found on the majority of graphics cards. The RX 6800 has 128MB of Infinity Cache, which is mostly intended for heavy gaming workloads. The new cache is four times denser than the legacy L2 cache and can achieve effective bandwidth of up to 1664GB/s.
AMD also has FidelityFX Super Resolution—or FSR for short—in its arsenal under the RX 6000 series. This open-source upsampling feature is similar to NVIDIA’s DLSS. It includes a wide range of technologies like denoiser, variable shading, ambient occlusion, and more to boost frame rates.
