With the launch of the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, we finally get a look at the top-end GPU from AMD’s 6000-series. We have looked at how the Radeon 6900 XT performs in a range of professional applications to help you decide whether they are worth using in a new workstation, or as an upgrade in your current system.
Unreal Engine – AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Performance
GPU performance is a key component to Unreal Engine, especially for Virtual Production and ArchViz workflows. AMD’s newest GPU, the Radeon RX 6900 XT has arrived with 16GB of VRAM. We can finally see how this card performs in professional workflows, both with and without ray tracing.
Agisoft Metashape 1.7.0 vs 1.6.5 Performance – Featuring Radeon RX 6900 XT
Agisoft recently released a major update to Metashape, version 1.7.0, after we had wrapped up most of our testing for a GPU performance roundup on the older 1.6.5. We’ve now tested a few video cards on the new version to see what has changed.
Agisoft Metashape 1.6.5 – GeForce RTX 30 Series vs Radeon RX 6000 Series
Now that we finally have performance data for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT, it is time for a head-to-head roundup of the GeForce RTX 30 Series and Radeon RX 6000 Series video cards in Agisoft Metashape.
DaVinci Resolve Studio – AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Performance
DaVinci Resolve has long been known for how well it utilizes the power of your GPU, with NVIDIA being the top performer for several years. But will this continue with the recently launched Radeon RX 6900 XT, or will AMD be able to take the lead?
Adobe Premiere Pro – AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Performance
Adobe has been focusing fairly heavily on GPU performance in the latest versions of Premiere Pro, adding more GPU accelerated effects as well as GPU-based hardware encoding. NVIDIA typically has a strong performance lead over AMD for Premiere Pro, but will this continue with the recently launched AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB?
Adobe After Effects – AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Performance
The number of GPU accelerated effects in After Effects has increased in recent years, but it continues to be an application that is primarily CPU bottlenecked. With the launch of the Radeon 6900 XT, we can get a look at how AMD competes with NVIDIA at the top end of their GPU product line.
Adobe Photoshop – AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Performance
After the launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce 30 series cards, AMD is firing back with the Radeon RX 6900 XT. But while Photoshop does have a number of effects that can utilize the GPU, there generally isn’t much of a performance difference between various cards. Will this hold true with the 6900 XT, or will AMD take the lead over NVIDIA?
