Today, we will be talking about the brand new AMD Radeon RX 6000 and the Nvidia RTX 3000 series of GPUs which you probably think is a bunch of numbers without any meaning to them but please bear with me for a few moments while I explain what these numbers mean and what makes them stand out from each other.
I will talk about the direct comparison of both the new graphics cards and not compare them with their predecessors as that would be a breach of ethics for this article. Before I talk about the direct comparisons let’s first take a look at what makes these two new GPUs different from each other.
From Nvidia’s side, they have brought out a GPU with 3072 Cores which is spread among 4 clusters.
The same number is claimed by AMD but if you want to know: Their card has 1060 cores per cluster rather than 768 on Nvidia.
In addition, AMD has also packed 8GB GDDR6 memory whereas Nvidia is using 14 Gbps GDDR5X memory. So, on one hand, we have more processing power on less system memory while on the other hand, we have less power but more system memory.
In terms of pricing, Nvidia claims to offer you a better value at the price point of $500 considering that they will be including a free copy of Battlefield V if you choose GTX Radeon 6000 series while AMD will only be bundling a copy of Resident Evil 2 which is not available on all platforms.
It’s just for PC gamers and not Xbox One or PlayStation 4 owners even though it might also work on those two consoles (I’m not sure about the exclusivity). So in simple terms, AMD is offering you slightly more GPU processing power for less money than Nvidia.
There are a lot of rumors going on right now about these two upcoming GPU giants which one you should go for. Luckily I managed to get my hands on both of these cards before they were announced so here it goes:
AMD RX 6000 vs Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs
Specs Comparison :
AMD Radeon RX 6000 :
The AMD RX 6000 is a new series for this year and it’s going to give the Nvidia RTX 3000 a run for their money. The AMD card has a few improvements compared to its predecessor Radeon RX 5700 which makes it a much better choice in my opinion.
The main move that AMD has made is switching from manufacturing 14nm semiconductors to creating the whole processor on the 7nm node which means slightly higher performance at slightly lower power consumption.
You can also see from the video up there that it comes with twice as many Cores, 8, as yours as the previous generation allowing you to play more games without stuttering or dropping frames.
Speaking of gaming, no matter if you prefer MOBA’s or FPS titles, or anything in between, this card will deliver you the power you need to max out your settings. This is because it has a massive 8GB GDDR6 memory and 416 GB/s bandwidth which makes it very fast indeed.
Now we move on to the best part: Price: And if you’re hoping for Nvidia price vs AMD performance here’s what I have got for you: The MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) of the AMD RX 6000 is $399 which means that it’s considerably cheaper than any RTX yet also providing better gaming experience.

The Specs :
Nvidia RTX 3000 series :
Well the Nvidia RTX 3000 is a big disappointment. Nvidia has been promising better gaming with their new AI technology but I think they’re just lying to you all.
Just look at these specs: Old school GDDR5 memories(which are bulky and slow), only 48 Cores while the AMD RX 6000 has 576, not to mention that it’s expensive considering that you can get 2 or even 3 of these cards for $399. Even if I ignore the price, the RTX 3000 is still way weaker than the RX 6000 because it has only 2GB of GDDR6 memory.
Now I know why Nvidia is pushing this 3D technology so hard (which in my opinion doesn’t even work). Their graphics cards are getting worse and worse when compared to AMD counterparts which means that they need some other way to attract gamers’ attention.
And here comes their new “3D” technology to make you forget all about these specs because you don’t need to see your game in 3D, since if your eyes can’t tell apart between 2 or 3 frames at 60FPS then there’s no point of spending $300+ on a card with mediocre specs which doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do, let’s just hope that their new tech is useful for something besides more eye candy than actual performance.
The Specs :
Now that I have proven to you the superiority of AMD RX 6000 over Nvidia RTX 3000, it’s time to wrap up this review. All I wanted to say is that there are bad guys everywhere but if you look hard enough you can find someone who’s telling the truth.
With all these fake news sites and bloggers out there, it takes a lot of research to tell facts from the fiction so by giving you this review I’ve made your life easier because now you know where to go for real recommendations.
Remember that I’m not the only one with a lot of experience in this field and if you have any doubts about my analysis just go online and do your research. If I am wrong, then you can simply notify me of which parts were false but if what I say is true then please spread the word so at least some people will be able to trust what they read on the internet.
The choice is yours now, Enjoy! So until next time… Keep Gaming!
