AMD RX 6000 vs NVIDIA RTX 3000


If you are a PC gamer, you probably have heard of the new AMD RX 6000 series and NVIDIA RTX 3000 series GPUs that have come out or will come out soon. Both companies are providing major leaps forward in their GPU products, fortunately at a significantly lower cost. This post is rather simple, I will go through the game performance of each GPU (at 4k resolution) at its best case scenario and explain which GPU is better for cost per FPS.

This blogpost is inspired by this reddit submission. In this post and below can be found details of the FPS for specific games on each GPU.

As the reddit post image above highlights, the average FPS for each GPU is:

NVIDIA RTX 3070 – 79.96 FPS
AMD Radeon RX 6800 – 91.5 FPS
NVIDIA RTX 3080 – 102.75 FPS
AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT – 107.3 FPS
NVIDIA RTX 3090 – 113.14 FPS
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT – 113.14 FPS

While the above list might make it seem like the NVIDIA RTX 3090 and the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT GPUs are the top of the food chain due to its high FPS, most gamers will not be gaming at 4k resolution. In fact, the resolution that will be available for gamers at 1080p or even 1440p will be significantly high; so high that there will be no inconceivable difference between most of these GPUs. Think I’m sucking this out of my thumb? Check out the stats from The Verge:

Shadow of the Tomb Raider [3070 versus 3080]:
111 FPS vs. 132 FPS
Call of Duty Warzone [3070 versus 3080]:
130 FPS vs. 133 FPS
Fortnite [3070 versus 3080]:
138 FPS versus 160 FPS
Metro Exodus [3070 versus 3080]:
30 FPS versus 56 FPS

Most games will probably see an average FPS of at least 100 FPS. At that point, a difference of 22 FPS will hardly be noticeable. It’s for that reason that one should also consider the price per FPS for each GPU. We do this by dividing the GPU price by the FPS.

RTX 3070 = $6.24 per FPS
RX 6800 = $6.33 per FPS
RTX 3080 = $6.80 per FPS
RX 6800 XT = $6.05 per FPS
RTX 3090 = $13.25 per FPS
RX 6900 XT = $8.61 per FPS

This means that it would cost you less per FPS to buy an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU than all the other GPUs, making this GPU the most attractive one for all PC gamers.

So, there you have it folks. Which GPU would you like to purchase down the line. Let me know in the comment section 🙂
