The Radeon RX 6750 XT Vs The RTX 3070

Nvidia’s RTX line of cards has put the pressure on AMD to deliver a strong mid-range GPU, and that’s what the 6750 XT is. It’s a refresh of the RDNA 2 from 2020, and it has a couple of minor tweaks to improve performance.

Its performance in games has improved slightly over the older card, and it’s a better option for 1440p gaming than Nvidia’s mid-range offerings. In a game like Watch Dogs Legion, it can pull off high frame rates at that resolution. That’s thanks to the RX 6750 XT’s 2560 shader units on a 7nm 17.2 billion transistor, 335 mm2 die. It’s paired with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory that operates at a frequency of 2150 MHz and has a 192-bit memory interface.

The card consumes about 200 W of power, and its running temperatures are a bit lower than the RTX 3070’s. It also performs a little better than the RTX 3060 Ti in a game like Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, though not by much. Its biggest weakness is its price, which is higher than the RTX 3070.

The used prices of this card are below its MSRP, making it a good value. That said, there are newer cards that offer similar performance and lower power consumption for the same price. If you’re planning to buy a new card, it’s worth waiting until RTX 4000 or the next-generation RDNA 3 arrives to see if they offer any better value.
