    This benchmark video has the 6900 XT producing 100-120fps @ 4k/high settings in Warzone.



    My 5700 XT produces 50-60fps @ 4k/high settings in Warzone.

    If the 6700 XT is expected to be half as powerful as a 6900 XT, then it looks like it is the same as a 5700 XT.

    Well, the 6700 XT core configuration looks identical to 5700 XT, both have 2560 stream processors and 40 compute units. I expect the new card to be more feature rich (Dx12 ultimate) and slightly more optimised 5700 XT, nothing more.

    It uses less powa, bitch. <- that is the take-away.

    Given the performance boosts we've seen with this generation of graphics cards, wouldn't it have been better to name the 6500XT - same performance as last generation, but lower down the new generation's performance table?

    AMD isn't afraid to re-position their product stack using new generation.

    I had a Radeon HD 5870, AMD released HD 6870 replacing 5770 and about same speed as 5870 (similar to current 3070 compared to 2080 Ti).
