Both GPUs are unsuitable for 4K max settings, unfortunately.
Not really a direct comparison. The two GPUs are using different RDNA2 silicon (Navi 21 vs Navi 22) and the 6700XT seems to focus more on clock speeds than raw CUs. Hitting over 2.5GHz boost clocks is nothing to scoff at.Amd is getting greedier. nice. they chose to use a (only) 40CU GPU in the 6700xt compared to 72!!! in the 6800xt and just overclock the heck out of this gpu. Why? To sell a much smaller chip for more money.
What? In the first place the 6700XT is using a different chip than the one in the 6800XT, second, everyone was expecting a 40CU config for the 6700XT, the same as the last gen 5700XT and yes every company will want and will do the most they can to get more money for their products, being fair or not this is the world created by consumerism and capitalism.Amd is getting greedier. nice. they chose to use a (only) 40CU GPU in the 6700xt compared to 72!!! in the 6800xt and just overclock the heck out of this gpu.

This is a performance test, not an efficiency test. Standard power usage figures as always reported by TechSpot are available in the RX 6700 XT review, which is linked at the beginning of this article: https://www.techspot.com/review/2216-amd-radeon-6700-xt/No power usage results......
I believe that the 30 series (exception being the 3060) are far better Crypto cards, that is probably the reason for the price differential.In Australia the cheapest in stock 6700XT I can find is $899, however the cheapest in stock 3070 is $1349. Pricing is crazy everywhere, but seems crazier with NVIDIA hardware at the moment.
I started Control right now. Even with SAM enabled and all the power of my card and rig, I cannot move it beyond 60 fps in 4K. So heavy! Obviously, all settings maxed out. I like this game for now, but I notice that the AI is just s***. The enemies reminded me of the first enemies of Lara in the 90's. Let's see if they improve later.Agreed, but at that price delta the 6700XT is arguably the better buy unless you are a Control fanatic. At MSRP, the 3070 makes more sense.
