AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT Linux Gaming Performance

Above is a look at the GPU power consumption over the entire duration of the many Linux gaming/graphics benchmarks carried out. On average this ASRock Radeon RX 6750 XT graphics card had a 173 Watt average power draw with a peak of 288 Watts. In comparison the RX 6700 XT had a 153 Watt average and a peak of 239 Watts. That's roughly a 35% increase in power consumption for this new refreshed RDNA2 GPU. The power draw of the RX 6750 XT was comparable to the Radeon VII.

For those wondering about the thermal performance of the ASRock Challenger Pro Radeon RX 6750 XT, here are the GPU core thermal readings for that card during the entire duration of game tests. The card was running comfortably with a 59 Watt average and a peak temperature of 64 degrees.

When taking the geometric mean of all the raw performance benchmark results for this gaming-focused Linux graphics card comparison, the RX 6750 XT was a 2.3% faster than the RX 6700 XT, which is rather disappointing considering the 35% increase in power consumption over the same span of tests. The Radeon RX 6700 series though with the open-source driver stack does stand up well against the GeForce RTX 3070 series with this geo mean average putting the RX 6750 XT just ahead of the RTX 3070 and RTX 2080 Ti while slightly behind the RTX 3070 Ti.

That's where things stand today with the Radeon RX 6750 XT and the other tested graphics cards with the latest Linux 5.17 + Mesa 22.2-devel on the AMD side and the NVIDIA R515 beta driver for all the tested GeForce GPUs. See all the raw benchmark data in full via this OpenBenchmarking.org result page.

It's good to see at least the Radeon RX 6750 XT behaving well out-of-the-box with the open-source Linux drivers and if running a Mesa/Linux kernel stack from roughly the past year you should be in good shape as far as the RX 6x50 XT enablement is concerned with having the necessary PCI IDs in place. The RX 6750 XT is treated as just another Navy Flounder.
