In the battlefield of graphics cards, two brands have conquered the entire gaming industry AMD and NVIDIA. Gamers who want to play heavy games at maximum settings want a graphics card from AMD and NVIDIA because these two brands provide some outstanding benchmarking.
Not only gamers but professional video editors who edit videos only at 4K quality also want graphics cards from these brands because they get a fast rendering speed for their videos.
When the rendering speed of your video’s format is fast, you can make more videos and get more views for your YouTube Channel or Facebook Page.
In the end, AMD and NVIDIA win. Several brands are manufacturing graphics cards, but they all collaborate with AMD and NVIDIA because they want to get their brands recognized. So they seek help from AMD and NVIDIA.
Now the question is, which brand is more powerful in these 2? AMD and NVIDIA are the best brands, but who wins this race? When we see the latest releases, we get NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 from one side and AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT from the second side.
Comparison Between AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
So we will compare AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 with each other.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Benchmarking
While seeing the benchmarking results, we will list 10 games that NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 can run on 4K quality. We will also list the FPS it offers at 4K quality.
Running a game at 4K quality is not a joke. You get 3840×2160 resolution, and in that resolution, if a game runs while delivering the highest FPS, then your graphics card is very powerful.
So here are the benchmarking results you get:
- Cyberpunk 2077 = 45 FPS on 3840×2160
- Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War = 74 FPS on 3840×2160
- Days Gone = 88 FPS on 3840×2160
- Deathloop = 77.5 FPS on 3840×2160
- FIFA 22 = 269 FPS on 3840×2160
- F1 2021 = 102 FPS on 3840×2160
- Monster Hunter Stories 2 = 144 FPS on 3840×2160
- New World = 69 FPS on 3840×2160
- Mass Effect Legendary Edition = 121 FPS on 3840×2160
- Resident Evil Village = 117 FPS on 3840×2160
- Outriders = 89 FPS on 3840×2160
- Hitman 3 = 115 FPS on 3840×2160
These are the 12 games that deliver these FPS on 4K quality. Cyberpunk 2077 is the only game that delivers less FPS on 4K quality. So hopefully, NVIDIA’s team will be busy developing a new graphics card that can run these games on 4K quality and high FPS.
AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT Benchmarking
Now let’s see the benchmarking of the AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT graphics card provided by AMD. The benchmarking results of AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT are as follow:
- Assassin’s Creed Valhalla = 63 FPS on 3840×2160
- Cyberpunk 2077 = 34 FPS on 3840×2160
- Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War = 68 FPS on 3840×2160
- Hitman 3 = 127 FPS on 3840×2160
- Immortals Fenyx Rising = 83 FPS on 3840×2160
- Watch Dogs Legion = 53 FPS on 3840×2160
- Mafia Definitive Edition = 67 FPS on 3840×2160
- Horizon Zero Dawn = 76 FPS on 3840×2160
- F1 2020 = 136 FPS on 3840×2160
- Red Dead Redemption 2 = 54 FPS on 3840×2160
- Borderlands 3 = 57 FPS on 3840×2160
This is the FPS number you get when you’ve installed an AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT on your PC Build. So if we compare these benchmarks with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, we see NVIDIA as a winner because the RTX 3090 delivers 45 FPS on Cyberpunk 2077, and this AMD graphics card delivers 34 FPS.
So in the gaming section, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 has won, and now let’s jump to these graphics cards’ connectivity and display section. These graphics cards are also used in the real estate business. You must install a graphics card on your office computer because the processing of real estate-related applications becomes easier. You can find loads of projects related to real estate on Lert Skip Tracing.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition Display Options
You get 4 power connectors to display from your graphics card to your monitor, and these 4 power connectors are in the latest formats.
With this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 FOUNDERS EDITION, you get 3x DisplayPorts (DP) and 1x HDMI port. The DP 1.4a feature of this graphics card delivers a 30Hz refresh rate of 8K quality, but at 4K quality, it delivers a 120Hz refresh rate.
AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT Display Options
When we see the display options or power connectors of AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT, we get 4 power connectors to insert a DP or HDMI cable and get the display on our monitor.
With this graphics card, we get DP 1.4 and HDMI 2.1. Comparing the video output on these options, we get the same results.
We get the same display output from these 2 graphics cards, but unfortunately, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is not available in DP 2.0. It’s available in DP 1.4a.
If this RTX 3090 had a DP 2.0 connector, you must have called yourself lucky because DP 2.0 offers more resolution and high display quality. With the DP 2.0, you get a 60Hz refresh rate on 8K quality, and HDMI 2.1 only delivers 30Hz on 8K quality.
The match between these 2 graphics cards is a draw because both have the same output. NVIDIA would have won from AMD if the developer had equipped this graphics card with DP 2.0 connector. But now, the match is a draw, and no one has won from each other.
Bus Speed (PCI Express)
These 2 graphics cards require the same bus speed and its PCIe 4.0. You’ve to be careful before inserting this graphics card in the expansion slot of your motherboard.
If a motherboard’s expansion slot is offering PCIe 4.0 revision on its X16 slot, then it’s good to insert, or else you’ll face disappointments. Final Desktop is the best option if you are looking for some high-quality motherboards offering PCIe 4.0 revision. You’ll find loads of motherboards that are best for inserting these heavy graphics cards on this website.
In the final draw, I would say that NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 has won the benchmarking result, and AMD RADEON RX 6900 XT has lost. But when we see the connectivity and display section, both have the same output. The bus speed is also the same.
We can wait for another graphics card to show up, and we will surely see their results. Till that, thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next comparisons, hopefully.
