AMD reloads: Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6650 XT, 6750 XT, 6950 XT Pure review

With only a few days left in the launch of AMD’southward Radeon RX 6000 Refresh lineup, we thought we would share the synthetic performance benchmarks of all three cards including the Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT within various 3DMark tests.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 Refresh Constructed Functioning Benchmarks Leaked: RX 6950 XT Flagship Faster Than NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti In Fourth dimension Spy and Burn Strike

Yesterday, nosotros gave you the first expect at the full and last specifications of AMD’south Radeon RX 6000 refresh lineup which volition include the Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT cards. The performance results we are sharing for these cards are based on reference designs that run at the boosted clock speeds we reported yesterday. The test platform includes a Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU running DDR4-3600 memory on the latest 22.10-220411n drivers within the Windows ten Os.

The benchmarks include results from all 3 cards within various 3DMark Synthetic benchmarks such as Time Spy, Fire Strike, eleven, and Port Royal. Get-go upwards, nosotros have 3DMark Time Spy where the RX 6950 XT is faster than the NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti, RX 6750 XT is faster than the RTX 3070 Ti and the RX 6650 XT is faster than the RTX 3060. Do note that nosotros also compared the RTX 3090 Ti with a heavy overclock of around 2200 MHz and retention clocked in at 23.5 Gbps. The RTX 3090 Ti scores 22408 points in the graphics test which is a i% increase over the 6950 XT running at reference clocks. The Radeon graphics card volition have no trouble surpassing this performance with a minor overclock to the GPU and retention.

At present a comparison with other graphics cards is provided beneath only to go along in listen that they are running dissimilar test setups so operation results may vary in final testing:

3DMark Fire Strike has been a strong arrange for AMD Radeon RX 6000 serial graphics cards and RDNA two in detail. Here we run into a repeat of what we saw in the Time Spy benchmarks and yous can take a look yourself:

Moving over to 3DMark Port Majestic, hither we see NVIDIA retain its atomic number 82 thanks to the more avant-garde RT core architecture. The Radeon RX 6950 XT offers RT operation shut to an RTX 3080 but is unable to match information technology. The RX 6750 XT is around as fast as an RTX 2080 but much slower than an RTX 3060 Ti graphics carte du jour while the RX 6650 XT is merely slightly faster than the RTX 3050 in this operation test.

Nosotros as well added 3DMark 11 numbers for the AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT in the mix for you lot to bask and compare:

In one case once more, all of these results are for reference models but information technology looks like AIBs are already working on models that will work at over 2.5 GHz for all iii designs. As spotted by Videocardz (Chiphell Forums), Sapphire’s lineup, which leaked not long ago, will have a dual BIOS design across all iii variants and volition come in various Toxic and Nitro flavors.

Sapphire’s Radeon RX 6000 Refresh Graphics Cards Peradventure Detailed

So most the alleged Sapphire Radeon RX 6000 leak, the AIB is working on its flagship Radeon RX 6950 XT TOXIC design along with RX 6950 XT Nitro+ SE, RX 6950 XT Nitro+, RX 6750 XT Nitro+ and RX 6650 XT Nitro+ custom models. These cards volition not only feature custom designs but will besides adopt factory overclocks and college TGPs stored within their BIOS. Post-obit is a look at the line:

  • Sapphire RX 6950 XT Toxic:
    332W (2310/2532 MHz) / 346W OC BIOS (2343/2565 MHz)
  • Sapphire RX 6950 XT Nitro+ SE:
    303W (2162/2368 MHz) / 325W OC BIOS (2226/2435 MHz)
  • Sapphire RX 6950 XT Nitro+ OC:
    289W (2116/2324 MHz) / 284W Southward BIOS (2100/2310 MHz)
  • Sapphire RX 6750 XT Nitro+ OC:
    230W (2554/2623 MHz) / 200W S BIOS (2495/2600 MHz)
  • Sapphire RX 6650 XT Nitro+ OC:
    164W (2523/2694 MHz) / 157W S BIOS (2486/2680 MHz)

What’s interesting about the three Nitro+ OC models is that they have TDPs tuned slightly below the reference models. The 6950 XT Nitro+ OC has a 46W lower TDP, the 6750 XT Nitro+ OC has a 20W lower TDP while the 6650 XT Nitro+ OC has a 16W lower TDP. It goes further down when the ‘Silent’ BIOS is enabled. Despite that, the GPUs are able to operate at a higher standard frequency which is impressive.

Alleged clocks and ability limits of Sapphire’due south custom Radeon RX 6000 refresh lineup have leaked out. (Image Credits: Chiphell Forums)

The Sapphire Radeon RX 6950 XT Toxic and Nitro+ SE are able to operate at much college clock speeds and also characteristic a slightly lower TDP than reference designs. The Toxic is shut to its 335W wall just tin be extended to 346W for up to 2565 MHz. This is a 2% increase over the RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme which ran up to 2525 MHz just had an OC BIOS power rating of 400W. Just like the previous Toxic Extreme, the new model will come in a Hybrid cooled packet while the Nitro+ OC models volition feature a triple-fan design.
