Red Gaming Tech's RDNA 2 leaked info video is live now:
-Finalized specifications for the highest end chipset should be nailed down by 1st week of October
-AMD is aiming for lower power consumption than Nvidia's Ampere, says he previously heard that the highest end RDNA 2 chip may have a 250 watt TDP.
-Radeon 6700 is targeted at the 3070, but unfortunately won't be ready until early 2021. More power efficient than 3070.
-6800 and 6900 aiming for release by the end of October, but could slip to early November.
-His sources aren't 100% sure how these will compete performance wise against Ampere, largely because clock rates haven't been finalized yet.
-Expects the 6800 and 6700 to about match the 3080 and 3070 respectively while using less power, but thinks that 3090 will outperform the 6900, which is likely aimed at the eventual 3080 ti/Super, rather than the 3090
-Unsure about how well RDNA 2 will compete against Ampere on raytracing, but says he thinks that RDNA 2 will surpass Turing's raytracing performance but fall short of Ampere's ray tracing performance
-Also unsure on how well AMD's reported DLSS competitor will compete against DLSS
-Says he thinks that RDNA 2 will overall have the edge in both pricing and power efficiency, but thinks that Ampere will have the performance edge on certain GPU tiers, and at certain types of performance, especially raytracing.
-Says that if Ampere had been even 10% slower, that RDNA 2 would have the performance edge on every tier, that is how close he expects the gap between the two to be
-Says the plan is currently for AMD to undercut Nvidia on pricing across the board, but may increase pricing on tiers where they have the performance edge, to price match Nvidia at those tiers.
-Says that he expects the 6700 and 3070 to outperform the RDNA 2 GPU's in Series X and PS5 by a pretty large margin.
-Doesn't know if AMD has a competitor for RTX IO, but wouldn't be surprised if they do, since they helped Sony and MS with their decompression tech.
