XFX Radeon RX 6700 XT Speedster QICK 319 black gaming graphics card review

Is it good for mining? The Radeon RX 6700 XT is based on the new 7 nm Navi 22 silicon and maxes it out. The chip is equipped with 40 RDNA2 compute units, which means 2,560 stream processors, 40 Ray Accelerators, 160 TMUs, and 64 ROPs.

Price

It looks like a higher-end card, and is meant to have an MSRP of $569. We have the usual Big Navi GPU that clocks up to 2622MHz (with room for OC) and 12GB of GDDR6 memory at 16Gbps which is plenty for games of today, tomorrow and at 1080p through to 4K.

Design

Measuring at ‎12.72 x 5.2 x 2.01 inches, XFX Speedster QICK 319 weighs around 3096 pounds. It comes with 12GB GDDR6 AMD RDNA 2 architecture that elevates and unifies the gaming. It runs almost silent super cool at 25% fan speed. It stays there most of the time even at 100% load. 

Ports

We have HDMI 2.1 connectivity if you wanted to plug it into a new TV or high-end gaming monitor for up to 4K 120Hz through HDMI.

Frame rates

Overclocking it also makes a good bit of difference finally, 4% which helps keep the minimums up. The XFX card is also faster than the reference card by 4%. The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is faster still and brings it to nearly 60FPS, and the RTX 3070 FE is the best card for the job at near 70FPS. 

Temperature

Overclocked at 100% fan speed the maximum GPU clock it hit briefly was 2804MHz.  The GPU Temperature was 47c and the GPU Temperature Hot Spot was 68c.  These are incredibly good temperatures, but the fans are at 100%.  The GPU Voltage was the default 1.200V.

Cooling

The aluminum backplate acts as a heat spreader and has a lot of venting so heat is not trapped.  There is a copper base that makes contact with the GPU and DDR memory using thermal pads.  Thermal pads cover the VRM’s, memory, and GPU on both sides of the PCB.  

Overclocking

 It has a base clock of 2457MHz, a game clock of 2548MHz, and a boost clock of 2622MHz.  For comparison, the reference card has a base clock of 2321MHz, a game clock of 2424MHz, and a boost clock of 2581MHz.  Therefore, the game clock is 124MHz higher on the XFX card which is a 5% GPU factory overclock.  Since the clock speed can run dynamically this can be different while gaming, so we will see.

XFX Radeon RX 6700 XT Speedster QICK 319 black gaming graphics card Customer review

My take on this 6700xt (Just get any card)

Hello, this card was a joy to use after fine tuning some settings in the Radeon Software.

Pros:

12GB VRAM – some of the games I played used more than 8GB which was a better option than a 3070 which was my first choice. SOTTR used (8.4GB w/ RT), Warzone used (10 – 11GB), Apex did go past 8GB but rarely, and Red Dead Redemption used around 8GB.

Price to Performance – I play in ultrawide 1080p and this card was able to handle it well. Be sure to get a decent CPU’s before getting a card of this caliber. I used to have a Ryzen 5 3500(3600 no HT) and it was bad so I had to upgrade to a Ryzen 7 3700x(Didn’t go with Ryzen 5 5600x since I needed more cores).

Overclocking – I was able to put the slider all the way to max in both GPU clock(2800) and VRAM clock(2150). I got almost a 15% performance at highest as this card specifically depends a lot on its performance on clock speeds.

Not a Pro or Con

Gaming Performance – Do research on what games you play as some AMD cards either perform worse or better than Nvidia counterparts. AC Valhalla for example performs better on AMD and Watch Dogs Legion performs better on Nvidia

DX11 and DX12 – AMD generally performs better in DX11 and Nvidia does better in DX12 (Don’t quote me this was based on my old 1660 super lol).

Cons

Black Screens
I had constant black screens sometimes randomly either when I turn on SAM or change PCIE to 4.0 in bios. I had to use DDU twice to eliminate black bars.

Features and Drivers – Sure it had OC tuning, Eyefinity and anti-lag but no doubt Nvidia excels with feature set with (DLSS, RTX Voice and Broadcast as well as Reflex). They do also have better drivers compared to AMD’s.

AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT

Pros

+Occasional RTX 3090 performance…+…but cheaper!

Cons

-Can lag behind RTX 3080 at times-Mediocre ray-tracing performance

SPECIFICATIONS

RDNA cores: 5,120Base clock: 1,825MHzBoost clock: 2,250MHzTFLOPs: 23.04Memory: 16GB GDDR6Memory clock: 16GT/sMemory bandwidth: 512GB/s

The RX 6900 XT hopes to knock Ampere’s finest from its perch on high and send it spiraling back down to Earth. And it gets kind of close, too, with 4K performance a little off the pace of the RTX 3090—and all for one-third off the asking price.

The RTX 3090 may have sat unchallenged at the top rungs of graphics performance at launch, but it wouldn’t be long until AMD rustled together a challenger in the RX 6900 XT, or ‘Big Navi.’

It’s another $300 on top of the RTX 3080’s price tag, and you’d hope for higher performance in both rasterized and ray tracing workloads. Yet, inevitably its ray-tracing acceleration lags behind the competition.

For that reason, it’s simply the better buy for any PC gamer without any ulterior motives of the pro-creator variety. But there’s a reason it’s not number one in our graphics card guide today, and that’s simply due to the fact it’s not that much better than an RTX 3080, and sometimes not at all.

But the RX 6900 XT does come with assurances that the RTX 3080 can’t make, such as its 16GB of GDDR6 memory, which is a whole 6GB greater than the 10GB of (faster) GDDR6X memory on the green team card. With that in mind, for raw gaming alone, the RX 6900 XT is a cheaper alternative to the RTX 3090 is still a victim to its own extreme price tag.
