Having reviewed the Radeon RX 6800 XT , today we’re checking out the standard RX 6800 which is only ~10% cheaper than the XT at $580, though we're looking at 17% fewer cores, so it'll be interesting to see how the two compare in terms of cost per frame. The Radeon RX 6800 is a very similar graphics card and GPU based on the RDNA2 architecture using TSMC’s 7nm process. The card packs 3840 cores, 240 TMUs and 96 ROPs across 60 CUs. The cores clock at up to 2105 MHz and with 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit wide memory bus, it has 512GB/s of memory bandwidth to play with. It’s rated at 250 watts total board power, and of course, supports PCI Express 4.0. If the RX 6800 XT is going head to head against the RTX 3080 , the standard RX 6800 could arrive to compete with the RTX 3070 , however going by pricing alone it's clear AMD believes their card will be a tad faster, so it has been priced accordingly.

Meanwhile the vanilla RTX 2080 is landing at $700 for partner models and $800 for the Founders Edition. Later next month we'll also get the RTX 2070 at $500 or $600 for the FE card.

Nevertheless it's worth noting that graphics card prices are down to regular levels .

Denver Post Broncos writer Ryan O’Halloran posts his Broncos Mailbag periodically during the offseason. Submit questions to Ryan here . Why do fans always seem to believe that highly touted draft prospects are a better choice than proven veterans (especially at quarterback position)? Do they not learn from history? To remind everyone that Teddy Bridgewater is not such a bad deal, can you please type the names: Ryan Leaf, Jamarcus Russell, Tim Couch, Akili Smith, Josh Rosen, Johnny Manziel (feel free to add a few more)? — Alan, Belize I don’t care about past quarterback history. For every one of those busts, I mention Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Luck and Cam Newton — solid top-10 picks. I have no problem with the Bridgewater trade and I would have really liked it if he would have served as a bridge to Justin Fields. Among the quarterbacks Alan mentioned, Leaf (Chargers), Russell (Raiders) and Smith (Bengals) joined dysfunctional … [Read more...] about Broncos Mailbag: If Aaron Rodgers is traded to Denver, would talent around him be Super Bowl-quality?
