AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 Review


Boundary & IndigoBench

Boundary is a multiplayer tactical space-based shooter game by Studio Surgical Scalpels. In this game title, players will engage in fierce team vs team zero gravity firefights and executing low-gravity operations on orbiting space installations against other enemy astroperators and other entities.

Boundary made a stand-alone benchmark available to the media that we used to benchmark the RTX 3080 FE graphics card. We left the settings at default, but did enable and disable DLSS to see how it impacted performance.

With DXR enabled the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT was performing behind the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and ahead of the Geforce RTX 2080 SUPER card. Once DLSS was enabled the NVIDIA cards took performance to the next level and even the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER card was delivering higher scores than the RT 6800 XT was capable of. The Radeon RX 6800 was just ahead of the RTX 2070 SUPER with DLSS off. This is a good example of how AMD still needs to work on their GPU architecture for ray tracing performance.


IndigoBench is a standalone benchmark application based on Indigo 4’s advanced rendering engine, useful for measuring the performance of modern CPUs and GPUs. Due to the use of industry-standard OpenCL, a wide variety of GPUs from NVIDIA, AMD and Intel are supported.
