What’s better than one of AMD’s new Big Navi-powered Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards? Two of them in mGPU mode and benchmarked.
Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a huge multi-GPU and resolution/FPS nerd, so the second that I could try out Big Navi in multi-GPU mode I knew We had to. I did some preliminary testing with the Radeon RX 5700 XT in GPU mode, but now it’s time for Big Navi and the Radeon RX 6800 XT in mGPU setting — and man, are you going to love these results.
I thought I would do these tests a little differently — so I switched out the Ryzen 7 3800X away of my ASUS Crosshair VIII HERO Wi-Fi motherboard — and in with AMD’s new Zen 3-powered Ryzen 9 5900X processor. Yes, the new Ryzen 9 5900X processor is powering these multi-GPU assessments with Big Navi and the two Radeon RX 6800 XT cards in mGPU mode.
AMD sent over their new Ryzen 9 5900X for these very types of articles, where you can see the GPUs totally unleashed — we have a brand new kick-ass Zen 3-powered processor chip, and 2 x Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards. This is about as Team Red as it gets.
I’m halfway through the 8K benchmarking, so I’ll have a follow-up article on 8K that will by the looks of it, be just as impressive if not even more so, than the exciting numbers below.
The two cards in question — XFX’s latest Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster MERC 319, alongside AMD’s own reference Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card. Ain’t it beautiful?!
