AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT 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.

Very impressive performance especially for the price, If AMD had stronger RT performance, As it is a selling point for me, I'd jump ship in a heartbeat.Quote

I'm more impressed that at least on OCUK it is "only" £1099. Pretty much the same price as the 6900XT. CCL however are clearly on something with their almost £1400 price.

That said after having seen how not very impressive it is VS the also hugely over priced 6800XT I can't say I would ever consider buying one. Not when the 3080 is cheaper than both for the 10gb and the same price as a 6800XT for the 12gb model.

Especially given the review I watched (GN) did not include anything to do with RT, and much more importantly DLSS.Quote

Depends on the card, you have to compare like for like. Ive seen some models at £1900Quote

Well my 6800xt on a 1700 isn't far behind this maybe once i get this bios and switch in my 5800x I could out perform it, the DXR is ok in all the games I've played obviously behind.

I wouldn't buy any card atm just too close to the next batch.

Can't say i'm impressed by them and either the prices still not close to the original msrp. if they'd come out 6months sooner then maybe if the prices were better but can't see many buying these.

It's stock clearence and a slight bump saying that the midnight black is better suits more builds, but i'll not need a card anytime soon, but my nitro + SE was way overpriced when i got it saw them going for £1500 it was tempting but i do like my card and needed it

give it 6months and the new batch will be out and i'm expecting price rises all round from all sides.

They didn't make the 6850xt as it would have beaten the higher cards with a overclock even i've had 2600mhz without any effort, but i'm even expecting higher on my chip switch Quote

that's just mental man. Dang.

I can't see any huge problems with the Red Devil tbh. They actually dropped the price £20 to compete with Scan too.

Which makes it utterly obvious that some OEMs (like Powecolor) are not taking the pee pee whilst others totally are still scalping.

Sapphire seem to be OK. Theirs are right around RRP atm. It's MSI etc that are the worst. Well, I say that, but Asrock are clearly high. Theirs are by far and away the most expensive Radeons and they don't even look all that great. Funny how they don't send them out for review either.Quote
