Its tough having to review a product I know isn't even available in-stores. As much as I want to be critical of AMD in this regard, as an ASUS review, the focus should be on them. The TUF GAMING RX 6800 XT OC is an excellent rendition of the RDNA2 card, despite its larger footprint, its a cool and quiet card and if you don't really card about raytracing, its actually great value... only if you can get at SRP.
Delivering better performance than an RTX 2080 Super, the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition uses the same-style cooler as the RTX 3070 but arrives $100 less. This price difference is both a pro and con and many could easily jump the price difference so an RTX 3060 or RTX 3050 would prove to be key in how we perceive this card in terms of value. Compared to an RTX 2080 SUPER or anything below it, at $399 this is an jump in performance.
