The tests were carried out using six games, namely Red Dead Redemption 2, Rainbow Six Siege, Far Cry 6, Hitman 3, Dying Light 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. All but the last game, which was set to high quality, were set to medium quality. In addition, a set based on the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor with DDR4-3600 CL16 was used, which is a suitable choice, since we do not want the results to be affected by the weak performance of the processor, and the given Ryzen is currently at the top among gaming CPUs together with the Core i9-12900KS.
The results are understandably influenced by prices from American stores, but they should proportionally correspond to the offer that applies here and for us. The point here is that the Radeon RX 6600 XT is also about 20 percent more expensive than the RX 6600, but the price ranges of individual card models in different stores are very large, so practically anything can be hidden in them.
Of course, the cards that have the lowest price per frame win here, while we also have to take into account the average FPS, which will show us whether the given card will be sufficient for our requirements. In other words, the Radeon RX 6600 can do very well in terms of price per frame, but if it only offers an average of 41 FPS in 4K, it’s definitely not a good choice. If the target resolution is Full HD, on the other hand, it is a suitable choice and 1440p can be enough. In 4K, it is replaced by the Radeon RX 6700 XT, which, despite the average 65 FPS, is not a GPU that will always provide us with a quality experience at such a resolution. So a more demanding customer has to reach lower for the RX 6800 XT or RTX 3080.
It should also be noted that due to the selection of only six games, it is not appropriate to take these results strictly as a comparison of AMD’s offer vs. NVIDIA, because in other six games, the order of Radeons compared to GeForces could be quite different. It will be better to take it as two separate rankings, one with Radeons and the other with GeForce.
