What a time to be a PC gamer; AMD is the performance leader and NVIDIA and AMD are actually going head to head on performance… BUT the pandemic still rages on and some regions of the world are still in lockdown. This is indeed the new normal. Alas, humanity perseveres. One of the things that has really seen growth in this new-normal is gaming. Gaming in general has seen a huge boom and PC gaming and PC sales have also seen an increase due to the amount of gamers looking to find new ways to entertain themselves.
AMD’s success couldn’t come at a better time but circumstances are still not with them. Still, we managed to get our hands on the ASUS TUF GAMING RX 6800 XT. I’ve dubbed the TUF GAMING line-up as the “working man’s ROG”, simply because its definitely stepped-out of the role of the mainstream filler for ASUS. Its now built with an all-metal frame and there’s barely plastic in the build. Its minimalist RGB implementation also makes it a blackout build option. Last up, it offers excellent cooling without being noisy, utilizing ASUS’s Axialtech fans and triple fan design to really push today’s GPUs to their best. All of those are found on the TUF GAMING RX 6800 XT, but beefed up to a triple-slot cooler design.
A bit of preface, in this review we’ll take a look at raster performance-only. We’ll explain in detail at the end of this review. Read on to find out more about the ASUS TUF GAMING RX 6800 XT.
