As we anticipate the release of AMD's remaining Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs, such as the RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT, AMD's marketing team is comparing last-generation products against each other. Sasa Marinkovic, Senior Director of Gaming Marketing at AMD, posted a tweet that initially claimed to compare the gaming performance of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 16 GB versus the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8 GB card in both ray tracing and rasterization. However, a follow-up tweet clarified that the chart only compares rasterization performance, and no ray tracing has been enabled. While it may seem odd to compare last-generation solutions, it makes sense to do so from a price perspective, as both GPUs can be found at similar price points at retailers like Newegg.
Regarding performance, the chart displays a comparison of the average FPS at 1440p. In games like Valorant, the Radeon RX 6800 can achieve 31% higher FPS. NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 was only faster in Metro Exodus, GTA V, and Dota 2, while the remaining titles favored the Radeon RX 6800. The chart is provided below for reference.
