    Phoronix: AMD Radeon RX 6800 Series Linux Performance

    Today is the big day: Big Navi is shipping! This also means we can talk at length finally about the Linux support and performance for the Radeon RX 6800 series and how well they perform for Linux gaming. Here is a look at the Linux driver state for these initial RDNA 2 graphics cards and their performance capabilities with the multiple different open-source driver stacks available.

    now im curious how windows drivers are performing - I also think the linux drivers will evolve

    edit: according to igorslab at QHD 6800XT AMD is on par with 3080

    btw mesa is once showing again what a tremendous amount of good work has been done !

      nice performance and power consumption compare to nvidia. 6800 seems to be great for both

          Excellent option for gaming without RTRT and Linux users.

          If you're looking for a future-proof card, you probably have to choose NVIDIA or wait for RDNA 3.0.

            As expected, I'm not impressed. But, AMD has a solid lineup this time around. If buying AMD gpu, this one is good to go.

              So no card or a proprietary card? LOL Your funny!

              But yeah the 6800xt seems very very nice. But will probably wait for the Sapphire Nitro version...aaaand try to snictch one before the scalpers get them all....

                Do we have some numbers for idle power draw? Doesn't look so good on windows.

                  Other proprietary features of your PC you choose to turn a blind eye to: UEFI firmware, SSD firmware, NIC firmware, audio codec firmware and ... your AMD GPU firmware. By choosing NVIDIA you just have one more binary blob than when running AMD. Doesn't look too much different to me.

                    Very little to choose between AMD & Nvidia which is a good thing but these cards are for those with money to burn and frame rates no matter what the cost, I look forward to the what trickles down to the more affordable range over the next 12 months or so.
