AMD Radeon RX 6800

New AMD Radeon RX 6800 they have given some really incredible results. The immense power of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 seemed unattainable, but the truth is that in some specific tests they have reached them, in others they stay extremely close and, in some cases, surpass them. Great results from this new series from AMD.

In addition, they not only have a very even performance, but they are cheaper, they heat less, and they consume less energy. Therefore, graphics cards from AMD are all advantages. They are certainly knowing how to go back both in the realm of the CPU and the GPU. Lately it's success after success ...

These new AMD Radeon RX 6800 and XT have begun to reach some models at the Linux Reviewers, so both GPUs are already being tested to see the performance results. This could indicate that the results are really positive, since otherwise these cards would not be sent for benchmark tests.

Waiting for them to fail would avoid sending the cards. It is believed, although details have not yet been revealed, that AMD is very optimistic regarding the performance that these graphics cards based on the RDNA2 microarchitecture can perform in Linux. The data will soon be revealed to confirm these rumors ...

If they are as good as can be guessed, the world of gaming under Linux is in luck, since with the power of the open source graphics drivers of AMD for its GPUs, and the performance that these new graphics can bring, it can be a good tandem. I hope this is complemented by big AAA releases in the world of video games, which would be the true delight of gamers.

In addition, the accelerator has also been announced AMD Radeon Instinct MI100 Arcturus and ROCm 4.0 (Radeon OpenComputer). By the way, a GPU with which AMD is again ahead of NVIDIA, as it is the first card to achieve 10 TFLOPS of double precision floating point (FP64) performance.
