Moving back to some real-world workloads with IndigoBench, the Radeon RX 6800 XT nearly matched the RTX 3080 while the RX 6800 was well ahead of the RTX 2080 Ti and even TITAN RTX.

The Radeon RX 6800 series was very strong with regards to value for the OpenCL IndigoBench results.

On a performance-per-Watt basis the Radeon graphics cards were crushing the NVIDIA competition.

The Geekbench 5 OpenCL results is one of the few cases where the RX 6800 XT came up well short for compute performance of the RTX 3080 -- in fact, below the RTX 2080 Ti and TITAN RTX. Meanwhile though the RX 5700 / RX 5700 XT on Linux with the ROC OpenCL stack were hung during this workload, so at least Big Navi even managed to run compared to compute being an after thought on those original Navi GPUs.
