RX 6800 or RTX 3070

I am looking at doing a £1000 build with a next Gen GPU. Is it possible to get a RX6800 VS RTX 3070 in a decent build for that price or should I wait for something like the 3060ti or 6700. If it is possible to get the 3070 or 6800 which one would be a better option.

If you have $579, get the 6800.

 

If you want to spend less ($499), the 3070 is still incredibly fast and not far behind the 6800

Current System: Ryzen 7 3700X, 32GB DDR4 @ 3000MHz, MAG B550 Tomahawk, 1TB WD SN550 NVME, be quiet! Straight Power 11 850W, RTX 3080 Founders Edition, NZXT H510

I would say you need at least $1300 (preferably $1500) to get a 3070 or a 6800. Because they are alone around 45% of that budget. If you have an older system, just use the gpu from that for now, and then when you are able to comfortably get one, do that. But according the AMD, the 6800 is better than the 3070, I would wait for independent benchmarks and tests to get either one.

Soon 3rd gen ryzen prices will drop so you can easily pick something like 3600, 16gb of 3000mhz ram a solid psu and one of those gpus but don't try 2tb nvme ssd or other things like that.

I will probably go for a 1tb SATA SSD or a 250gb SATA and a 2tb HDD. I would imagine the 3600 will drop. I just noticed that the 6800 benchmarks they showed were with Smart Access memory enabled so I imagine it will be pretty equal to the 3070 without a Ryzen 5000 CPU. Equally, since I am only building after Christmas there might be a 3060ti or 6700 by then so if there is I might just go for one of those as they will still give plenty of performance for 1440p which is what I plan to play at

Don't puts too much value on smart access memory, with AMD own benchmarks it give you 3-4% more performance which is not much. And base on Moore's law is dead rx 6800 will be faster than 3070 all the times and it have double the amount of vram.

GL on your build.

Thanks. I think I'll go with a £400 GPU if the next Gen ones are out by then ( leaks seem to suggest 3060ti in November), otherwise I will either wait for them or find some extra cash for a 6800

Don't. Get NVMe for a primary SSD. They cost the same as decent SATA SSDs, but they perform WAY better.

I realised that after posting that comment. I can get a NVME for £8 more than the cheapest decent SATA so definitely worth it
