That reveals important enchancment from AMD relating to ray tracing, however they nonetheless have a methods to go.
These are simply a number of the outcomes from The FPS Critiques’ two critiques which additionally examine the playing cards with DLSS and FSR enabled, and people two applied sciences make an enormous distinction at 4K.
In case you do discover an RX 7900 XT or RX 7900 XTX on the market and need to choose it up you may get The Callisto Protocol and Useless Island 2 at no cost; identical with any flavour of RX 6800, RX 6750 XT, RX 6700 , RX 6650 or RX 6600.
