The new Radeon RX 6750 XT is a minor refresh from AMD over the RX 6700 XT GPU launched a couple of yr in the past. This refresh isn’t any completely different to the Radeon RX 6650 XT we reviewed final week, the place after just a few tweaks the brand new mannequin gained about 6% extra efficiency on common over the RX 6600, for a rise in worth of 5%.
The RX 6750 XT encompasses a core overclock of 19 MHz… not 19%, 19 MHz, however you are getting sooner 18 Gbps reminiscence, which leads to a 12.5% enhance to reminiscence bandwidth when in comparison with final yr’s RX 6700. There’s additionally a 9% improve in board energy and that is it. Oh wait, no it isn’t. You’re additionally confronted with a 15% improve in MSRP which has gone from $480 to $550.
We’ll analyze simply how a lot of a “deal” the 6750 XT is in our price per body phase in the direction of the top of the evaluation. On hand for testing we now have the MSI Gaming X Trio and Sapphire Nitro+ fashions, each wonderful boards.
For testing, all AMD and Nvidia GPUs have been clocked at their official specs, with no manufacturing facility overclocking. All the info collected is recent for this evaluation and was gathered prior to now week a half utilizing a Ryzen 7 5800X3D system outfitted with 32GB of dual-rank, dual-channel DDR4-3200 CL14 reminiscence on the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme utilizing the most recent BIOS supporting the AGESA 1207 microcode.
We examined 11 video games at 1080p, 1440p and 4K, however as a result of the outcomes are fairly repetitive we did not discover the necessity to enter an excessive amount of element, you’ll agree when you see them. We will nonetheless have a look at the 11 sport common in any respect resolutions and the fee per body evaluation.
Starting with Rainbow Six Extraction, we see that the 6700 XT and RTX 3060 Ti are evenly matched which is an effective end result for AMD within the present local weather contemplating the 6700 XT is less expensive. Based on present Newegg pricing the 6700 XT is down at $490 whereas the 3060 Ti is at $590.
The 6750 XT is predicted to settle in at $570, not less than primarily based on present pricing, which might place it very near the 3060 Ti by way of pricing and on this instance it is 8% sooner. When in comparison with the RTX 3070 it is simply 2% slower, however we estimate it is round 19% cheaper, so an amazing end result for AMD within the present market.
All of that stated, it is simply 7% sooner than the 6700 XT, in order that 15% bump in worth is a bit tough, frankly you would be greatest off simply overclocking the 6700 XT, which is principally all AMD’s accomplished.
The GeForce GPUs fare higher at 1440p and right here the 6750 XT is simply in a position to match the 3060 Ti, making the RTX 3070 13% sooner. Perhaps most disappointing is that the refresh is simply 4% sooner than the 6700 XT.
At 4K the margins change once more, the 6750 XT is 8% sooner than the 6700 XT which we really feel is a greatest case state of affairs. It matched the RTX 3060 Ti once more, this time marking it simply 5% slower than the RTX 3070.
Next we now have Watch Dogs: Legion and the 6750 XT could be very spectacular right here relative to the GeForce competitors, although somewhat underwhelming when in comparison with the 6700 XT because it was simply 4% sooner. A nasty end result in comparison with what it is refreshing, however nice in comparison with the RTX 3070 because it was 22% sooner.
That margin was diminished at 1440p, however nonetheless the 6750 XT was 13% sooner than the RTX 3070, which is a superb end result given how less expensive this GPU is. Of course, paying 15% extra for the 6750 XT over the 6700 XT is a bit tough given it was simply 5% sooner.
As normal, Nvidia’s Ampere structure is significantly better leveraged at 4K whereas the other is true for RNDA2, which turns into bandwidth constrained. As a end result the RTX 3070 now matches the 6750 XT. The 6750 XT was 6% sooner than the 6700 XT.
Moving on to Shadow of the Tomb Raider we discover that at 1080p the 6750 XT was good for 139 fps, making it 7% sooner than the 6700 XT for what principally quantities to RTX 3070 efficiency.
At 1440p the 6750 XT pulled out to a 9% margin over the 6700 XT and that allowed it to stay with the RTX 3070 which as we have talked about earlier than, given present pricing that is a superb end result for AMD.
As we transfer to 4K, the RTX 3070 is ready to pull forward because the 6750 XT trails by a 5% margin and is now on par with the RTX 3060 Ti and simply 8% sooner than the unique 6700 XT.
The Outer Worlds has been added to the day-one evaluation video games listing as this title balances out what’s now the 11 sport pattern to extra intently signify the margins seen between competing AMD and Nvidia merchandise throughout our huge 50 sport checks.
Like many Unreal Engine 4 titles this one favors GeForce GPUs and we see this as even the RTX 3060 Ti is quicker than the 6750 XT, which was simply 7% sooner than the unique 6700 XT.
Moving to 1440p additional favors the GeForce GPUs and now the 6750 XT is 6% slower than the RTX 3060 Ti and 14% slower than the RTX 3070. Meanwhile, it was 7% sooner than the 6700 XT, and what we have come to count on, miniscule positive aspects.
Then at 4K the GeForce GPUs draw back additional and now the 6750 XT is 7% slower than the RTX 3060 Ti and 18% slower than the RTX 3070. Unfortunately, the sooner GDDR6 reminiscence did not assist a lot as we’re seeing a 4% enhance over the 6700 XT.
At this level we have labored out the 6750 XT if we hadn’t already with a fast look on the specs. So we’ll wrap up with F1 2021. At 1080p, the 6750 XT was simply 5% slower than the RTX 3070 and seven% sooner than the 6700 XT and RTX 3060 Ti.
Then at 1440p it was 7% slower than the RTX 3070, 3% sooner than the 3060 Ti and 9% sooner than the 6700 XT.
The 4K outcomes are a little bit of a blowout and now even the RTX 3060 Ti is a tad sooner than the 6750 XT whereas the RTX 3070 is 20% sooner. Meanwhile, the 6750 XT was simply 5% sooner than the unique model.
A fast have a look at complete energy consumption exhibits that the 6700 XT pushed utilization to 336 watts, that means the 6750 XT elevated system consumption by 13%, which is important given the one digit efficiency positive aspects simply seen.
The end result is not stunning although as AMD is overclocking the 6750 XT past its effectivity window. When in comparison with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070, energy utilization for the 6750 XT is cheap nonetheless.
In phrases of efficiency, the Radeon RX 6750 XT appears nice in comparison with the RTX 3060 Ti and 3070 throughout the few video games we simply checked out, however wasn’t precisely thrilling sitting subsequent to the 6700 XT. To get a greater concept of how they stack up, let’s check out our 11 sport common…
Starting with the 1080p common information, the 6750 XT comes out 6% sooner than the 6700 XT, which isn’t nice given the 15% worth hike. Inserted right into a graph the end result by itself appears good although because it’s a bit sooner than the way more costly RTX 3070 and solely barely slower than the RTX 3070 Ti, which is much more costly.
That stated, the 6700 XT is clearly higher worth given the MSRPs, but it surely’s additionally higher worth given you’ll be able to simply overclock it your self for 6750 XT ranges of efficiency.
Increasing the decision to 1440p sees the 6750 XT and RTX 3070 neck and neck, and the refreshed mannequin is 5% sooner than the unique.
Then at 4K the 6750 XT was 6% sooner than the 6700 XT and that meant that it was now 6% slower than the RTX 3070.
Cost Per Frame
First we’ll have a look at a MSRP comparability, only for enjoyable since this would possibly not inform us nothing. If this era GPUs have been to promote on the MSRP there can be some fascinating match ups…
The RTX 3060 Ti can be the bee’s knees for worth consumers, coming in at a value of simply $4.54 per body based on our 11 sport information, making it 17% cheaper per body than the 6600 XT and 13% cheaper than the 6700 XT. But on the greater finish of the market the RX 6800 and 6800 XT would have seemed fairly good with the 6800 XT coming in at a 12% low cost per body when in comparison with the RTX 3080.
But, none of those costs are actual on retailer cabinets. However we thought they have been value exhibiting as a result of MSRP vs. actuality (a shifting goal) is kind of the fascinating comparability…
Looking on the typical costs seen over at Newegg proper now, we see Radeon GPUs occupying the highest of the graph with the GeForce GPUs largely taking over the underside half, fairly a stark distinction.
Of the GPUs in contrast on this evaluation, the 6700 XT is the standout, costing simply $5.32 per body making it a large 21% cheaper than the 3060 Ti and 26% cheaper than the RTX 3070. That’s a large price saving.
The 6750 XT sends AMD backwards a bit, growing the fee per body by 10%. That’s not nice however nonetheless has the 6750 XT 12% cheaper per body when in comparison with the RTX 3060 Ti, and 19% cheaper than the RTX 3070. We really feel something over 10% makes the Radeon GPUs a viable choice within the face of a lot weaker ray tracing efficiency and fewer mature upscaling know-how.
In phrases of cooling efficiency of the Sapphire and MSI fashions we now have available, the MSI 6750 XT Gaming X Trio is triple fan mannequin which peaked at simply 66C with a fan pace of 1350 RPM, making it a cool and quiet mannequin. The cores sometimes clocked at 2680 MHz, which is an effective end result general.
The Sapphire 6750 XT Nitro+ was barely higher, dropping the height temperature to 63C with a fan pace of 1250 RPM, and on prime of that the cores averaged the next clock frequency at 2720 MHz. The Nitro+ additionally encompasses a twin BIOS which is a good function to have on $300+ graphics playing cards.
What We Learned
The Radeon RX 6750 XT is an underwhelming launch subsequent to what AMD already had out there. It’s basically the identical GPU with a small manufacturing facility overclock which accounts for a small pace acquire, after which there’s the value hike.
AMD followers will argue about inflation, elevated transport prices, and so forth, and we’re conscious of these elements. Our level is solely that this new launch gives you nothing, or actually nothing you could not have achieved beforehand with the 6700 XT and a bit OC know-how.
From AMD’s perspective although, it is apparent why they’re doing this. Even with the 15% worth hike, the 6750 XT nonetheless gives aggressive worth over Nvidia GPUs at retail and with Nvidia nonetheless in a position to simply outsell AMD, they may as nicely improve revenue margins because it’s unlikely to discourage gross sales additional.
AMD assures us that 6700 XT provide will not be affected and people fashions will proceed to promote as they have been, that means they’re simply giving players extra choices with the 6750 XT. If that is true, then it is a non-issue. However, we’re undecided we consider AMD once they say the 6700 XT will live on and promote at a cheaper price, it would not make sense for them to do this, however we guess we’ll see how that performs out in time.
As of writing, the Radeon 6750 XT at $570 appears to be a significantly better deal than the RTX 3070 at $700, and presumably a greater deal than the RTX 3060 Ti at $590, relying on the place you stand on ray tracing and DLSS, although we must always word the previous just isn’t nice at these efficiency tiers. Finally, we’ll make it clear we do not even suggest you take into account the 6750 XT at $570, the 6700 XT at $490 is a much better deal and a significantly better purchase than even the RTX 3060.
