Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 2080 Ti to RX 6700 XT is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RX 6700 XT .

AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT

AMD ’s xx00 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the RDNA 2.0 graphics card inside the RX 6700 XT, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RX 6700 XT is much more expensive than the RX 5700 as it costs a whopping $ 479. Compare this to the RX 5700, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, which came originally at a price of $ 349, $ 399. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the RTX 3070 which costs $ 499.

The RX 6700 XT has 12 GB RAM compared to the RX 5700 's 8 GB video memory. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 6700 XT consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 5700, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a RX 5700, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this RX 6700 XT. Similarly, those holding onto RTX 3070 's RTX 2070 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Red Dead Redemption 2, Metro Exodus, Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 74 fps to 91 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 81 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Marvel's Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077 at 62 fps to 69 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 67 fps. For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Hitman 2, Far Cry New Dawn, Resident Evil 2, Death Stranding, Far Cry 5 at 62 fps to 69 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

The RTX 2080 Ti has 11 GB RAM compared to the GTX 1080 's 8 GB video memory. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2080 Ti consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1080, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2, Metro Exodus at 80 fps to 98 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 84 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Marvel's Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077 at 66 fps to 75 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 70 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Far Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 at 61 fps to 73 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 67 fps.
