6000 series are pretty terrible products when you realize that AMD is asking people to spend $650/$1000 on a GPU to Turn Off settings. It's amusing how on games that use heavy Ray Tracing, even Turing does better than the 6800 XT and that's before DLSS. You know... The GPUs that everyone said will age badly?

I was going to defend them, since RX 6800 + RX 6800 XT are quite fast in the newest games (AC Valhalla, Dirt 5, Watch Dogs Legion).

So if you aren't very interested in raytracing or VR games, they will deliver a good performance for years, especially their VRAM makes them quite future proof.

Unfortunately(?) I'm very interested in raytracing reflections, raytracing shadows/lighting and in VR games.

But until they have a solution similar to DLSS to even out the performance hit of activated raytracing, I'm better off with Ampere. 

Control with RTX activated (which looks awesome!) in 1440p brings an RX 6800 down to 33 fps on average with slowndowns to 25 fps. Thanks to DLSS2.0 I'm playing Control on my RTX 3070 with RTX activated and in the highest 1440p-settings with 60 - 100 fps.
