Now, this “initial” review did zero comparisons with anything other than the original RX 6700 XT, though AMD seems to be accurate in their claim that this RX 6750 XT matches (or exceeds) the performance of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070. Validating this claim with the same system configuration is my next task, but it seems certain that this new Radeon GPU is going to offer pretty compelling performance relative to current NVIDIA retail prices.
This conclusion would be a little different if NVIDIA cards were suddenly back to MSRP, though they have been trending in that direction. In other words, if the RTX 3070 goes back to $499 then the $549 base MSRP of the new RX 6750 XT cards will need an adjustment. Not that NVIDIA is going to sit still until then. We could even see a new GPU product from the green team in the near future (just a guess). Once again, competition is good.
For now I will end this by saying that Sapphire’s NITRO+ version of the RX 6750 XT, which they were kind enough to send us for this review, is a typically well built card with cool and quiet operation. I am curious to see how pricing and availability shakes out in the retail market, as rather curiously this refresh did not warrant an announcement from AMD before launch.
