AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT will soon meet with users, and as the official release approaches, sporadic news has flowed out. Compared to performance, the most concerned issue for users at this stage is still the supply, which has a certain relationship with the mining efficiency of the graphics card.
According to Cryptomining Blog, the current computing power of AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is 43 MH/s, which is lower than the 54.3 MH/s of Radeon RX 5700 XT. From this point of view, Radeon RX 6700 XT is not very good in mining. The choice, this may make many players breathe a sigh of relief. TweakTown previously reported that the hash rate of Radeon RX 6700 XT is about 40 MH/s, which is not far behind. Although Cryptomining Blog estimates that after optimization, the computing power of Radeon RX 6700 XT can be increased to 48 MH/s, but it is still not good enough. AMD’s previous generation of RDNA architecture graphics cards performed well in mining, but with RDNA 2 architecture graphics cards, the efficiency is not as good as before.
However, in actual games, the Radeon RX 6700 XT should be much better than the predecessor Radeon RX 5700 XT. According to Twitter user @TUM_APISAK, the Radeon RX 6700 XT is about 30% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT on average, and it seems that the performance is pretty good. As for the specific situation, the truth will come to light in two days.
At present, the hash rate of the Radeon RX 6800/6900 series is about 60 MH/s, and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is about 50 MH/s. This is still not optimized. If adjusted, as a competitor with similar market positioning, GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is still much better in terms of mining efficiency. Cryptomining Blog stated that if NVIDIA does not impose restrictions on the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, the efficiency of the GeForce RTX 3060 and Radeon RX 6700 XT should be similar in this regard.
