Our Verdict. AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card is a good graphics card for 1440p and 1080p gaming. It doesn't handle ray tracing well, however, and comes with a too-high price that makes a lot of business sense in today's environment.

Is 6700 XT good for 4K?

The RTX 3070 and 6700 XT deliver virtually identical performance at 1080p and 1440p, with the GeForce GPU running away at 4K with a 17% advantage, though as was the case in Flight Simulator 2020, performance at 4K was not playable with these settings.

There, we see the RX 6700 XT offer a massive lead of 32% at 1080p, 35% at 1440p, and 34% at 4K. With general testing out of the way, I put the RX 6700 XT through a round of expanded testing against a selection of competitive cards: the RTX 3070, RTX 3060 Ti, and the RX 6800. At 1440p, the RTX 3070 maintains its lead.

Does the 6700 XT have DLSS?

To wit, the RX 6700 XT is nominally the worst-performing graphics card we've tested in our run through the opening seconds of Battlefield 5's Tirailleur war story, averaging just 52fps at 1440p – and there's no option for DLSS to boost this average higher, something that is possible on Nvidia hardware.

Is a 6700xt as good as a 3070?

For the six games we tested, the RTX 3070 outpaces the RX 6700 XT by nearly 200% — the lead is 172% at 1080p and 205% at 1440p. In other words, with RT and DLSS enabled, the RTX 3070 is three times as fast as the RX 6700 XT at 1440p. … With DLSS, Nvidia's 1440p performance basically doubles AMD's 1080p performance.
