AMD looks set to appropriate the famous phrase, “The calm before the storm”. Recent few months have all been dedicated to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30XX’s coverage. Of course, we don’t regret that one bit. Those Ampere GPUs are making all the noise for the right reasons. But, if you thought NVIDIA had taken a stride much further with the new cards then you are mistaken. AMD is ready to play catch up and it gave a fitting glimpse of what the future holds in its recent live event. AMD launched the Zen3 architecture based Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs. The company claims these will be the best gaming CPUs in the market. In short, a red alert has been issued to Intel that rules that territory. However, like most AMD events they had more on offer than one originally expected. AMD also showed us glimpses of the Big Navi GPUs potential.
Radeon RX 6000 Big Navi helps close gap between AMD and NVIDIA
Frankly speaking, we all know Radeon RX 6000 Big Navi and it’s importance for AMD is not hidden. AMD has been searching for creative techniques to promote the upcoming GPU. The first hints were dropped when an Easter Egg in online game Fortnite appeared. In the live event they provided a teaser of how well Big Navi will fare on 4K performance. The benchmark games chosen were Borderlands 3, Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Gears 5. All these at their respective highest settings. The exact benchmark scores for the specific GPU teased could not be confirmed and can’t seem to arrive sooner. A few comparisons did arrive pipping the supposed Big Navi against NVIDIA RTX 3080 Founders Edition and MSI GAMING X TRIO.
The RTX 3080s hit 59.4 fps in Borderlands 3 and were edged for the better by Radeon RX 6000 Big Navi at 61 fps. However in Gears 5, the Radeon RX 6000 is 4fps slower (73fps) than RTX 3080 (77fps). Those are close separation and show how big a step AMD is taking towards closing the gap with NVIDIA. AMD’s teasing of Radeon RX 6000 was coupled with Ryzen 5900X, an unreleased processor. So lots of GPU reviewers are looking forward to AMD’s distribution of these CPUs and GPUs.
