AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Roundup Review

Temperatures and Power Draw

Modern graphics cards no longer rely upon the user to overclock them, as the drivers now make the most of any spare power or thermal headroom available to boost the clocks to give the smoothest performance. Thus the temperature graph is a little less important than it used to be unless the manufacturer has created a godly cooler, whilst Power Draw is fun on your energy bill, but most of us just care about performance rather than a handful of Watts here and there. With slight variance in ambient temperatures we're also including the delta temperature too, so you know exactly how well the card performs relative to the air temperature.

This is a meagre jump from the 5700XT. With that price increase, it's really nothing special. It's an improvement in performance-per-watt, which is impressive given it's the same process node, but that's about it. If I could choose between a 3060Ti or 3070 over a 6700XT, I'd choose the Nvidia card. They're just as efficient, have the same performance per dollar, have more consistent drivers, and most importantly offer far more software features. I get why AMD are charging so much for these, but they're not worth the money IMO. The 6700XT is a £350 GPU, maybe £375 because of the nice VRAM buffer, but that's it. Terrible RT, no DLSS, inferior streaming software.Quote

I wonder if these will have mysterious 'blackout' issues too. Not sure if those plague the 6800XT, but some of us with 6900XTs are having blackout problems, very strange stuff. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen to anyone buying the 6700/6800s, it's a maddening issue, wouldn't wish it on anyone!Quote
