AMD's CEO Dr. Lisa Su has just revealed the Radeon RX 6900 XT, a high-end graphics card in the AMD RX 6000-series (opens in new tab) ready to take on Nvidia's top-of-the-line GPUs at 4K and beyond. And how much will you have to pay for the privilege? $999.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that AMD is posing this card as an RTX 3090 killer? Yeah, the red team reports that this card is as fast, if not faster, than Nvidia's $1,499 RTX 3090 in a handful of games. Of course, we'll have to test it ourselves to confirm that is the case, but either way it's looking like a fantastic time to be into PC gaming.
It's important to note that AMD is using Rage Mode and Smart Access Memory with its RX 6900 XT benchmarks, which means it needs a little overclocking and some clever Ryzen cooperation in order to make an impact on Nvidia's finest. Still, it's much cheaper.
