Having revealed the Zen 3 CPU earlier this month, AMD returned with a new showcase to drop massive bombs with the Radeon RX 6000 GPUs. In a digital live showcase that premiered today, AMD revealed three next-generation versions of Radeon RX 6000 GPUs, including the RX 6800, RX 6800XT, and the beastly RX6900XT GPUs.

The three GPUs are a direct competition to Nvidia's RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090 GPUs. Let's take a look at the specifications and pricing of the GPU offerings from team red.

Radeon RX 6800

The Radeon RX 6800 is a direct competitor to Nvidia's RTX 3070 GPU. The RX 6800 is an affordable, yet powerful GPU, packaging 60 CUs, a 2105Mhz boost clock, 13.9 TFLOPs, and a massive 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM. This entry-level GPU has a TDP of 250W and costs $579. According to AMD, the RX 6800 offers similar performance to that of Nvidia's RTX 2080Ti.

Radeon RX 6800 XT

Succeeding the RX 6800 is the Radeon RX 6800XT, a card that goes up against Nvidia's flagship RTX 3080 GPU. The RX 6800 XT features 72 CUs, 2250MHz boost clock, 18.6 TFLOPs, and 16GB of VRAM. The RX 6800 XT recommends a TDP of 300W and costs $649, $50 less than the Nvidia RTX 3080.

Radeon RX 6900 XT

The RX 6900 XT is AMD's RDNA 2 flagship GPU, and it goes head-on with Nvidia's RTX 3090 GPU. The Radeon RX 6900 XT constitutes 80 CUs, 2250MHz boost clock speed, 20.6 TFLOPs, and 16GB of VRAM. Just like the RX 6800 XT, the RX 6900 XT demands a TDP of 300W, which is still less than the RTX 3090's 350W recommendation. The RX 6900 XT is priced at $999. The major difference between the RX 6900 XT and RTX 3090 is the VRAM, with the latter offering an additional 8GB of VRAM.

The Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT GPUs will be available from November 18, while the RX 6900 XT will be available from December 8.
