AMD even compares it against some previous-gen Pascal and Turing GPUs from NVIDIA, comparing the new Radeon RX 6700 XT against the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and Turing-powered GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. Both of NVIDIA's previous-gen offerings have 8GB of VRAM while AMD's new Radeon RX 6700 XT boasts 12GB.

Even here, you're looking at some great performance upgrades over the GTX 1070 Ti, and some continued gains over the RTX 2080 SUPER here at 1440p in similar games including COD: Black Ops Cold War and Cyberpunk 2077.
