Here we revisit Control, this time testing with the in-game ray tracing effects set to their highest values.
To assess the ray tracing performance of the RX 6800 XT, we start with Control. This uses a number of ray traced effects and can be quite punishing. At 1440p, the RX 6800 XT manages just 38FPS with RT set to High, putting it between the RTX 2080 Super and RTX 3070. It is also apparent that the performance hit when enabling ray tracing is bigger for the 6800 XT than it is for Nvidia’s GPUs. Again at 1440p, the 6800 XT sees its frame rate reduced by 56%, where the RTX 3070’s frame rate is reduced by 41%.
