Our review of the AMD RX 6700 XT tests the card versus the other recent releases on the market (and some old – like the GTX 1080 Ti, RTX 2070, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 2060, et al), establishing which GPU is the “best” for 2021 thus far. Unfortunately, the answer seems largely the same as previous times we’ve answered this lately: Whichever you can get. There’s one major problem with the 6700 XT, though, and it’s the same that the RTX 3060 had: It’s greedily positioned, and so once again we end up with a product which fails to move the needle meaningfully over previous generations, like the RX 5700 XT.
