First up was Total War: Three Kingdoms, a native Linux game port and rendered using the Vulkan API. The RX 6750 XT was barely faster than the RX 6700 XT for this native Linux game and for this title was performing similar to a RTX 3060 Ti, behind the RTX 3070 target AMD cited as the competition for the RX 6750 XT.

The RX 6750 XT during Total War: Three Kingdoms was pulling 178 Watts on average with a peak of 258 Watts, well above the RX 6700 XT with a 159 Watt average and 225 Watt peak. The RTX 3070 meanwhile had a 187 Watt average and 219W peak.

Thus on a power-efficiency basis, the RX 6750 XT was rather disappointing with this particular game.

At least with current pricing for cards in stock from NewEgg used, the RX 6700 series is leading with value.

DiRT Rally 2.0 runs on Linux by way of Steam Play (Proton) and rendered in turn using Vulkan. For this game the RX 6750 XT was successfully competing with the RTX 3070 in raw performance though only a 3 FPS average ahead of the RX 6700 XT...

The RX 6750 XT had a 191 Watt average power draw during this game benchmark, up from 170 Watts with the RX 6700 XT and the RTX 3070 meanwhile was at a 199 Watt average. The RDNA2 GPUs continued to lead in power efficiency over the NVIDIA Ampere GPus for this game.

When pushing the GPUs further with this Windows game on Linux, the RX 6750 XT was still dancing with the RTX 3070 but barely faster than the RX 6700 XT.
