Amd side, RX 6700 XT is scheduled to go on sale on March 18, priced at 3699 yuan. The test shows that the mining speed of Rx 6700 XT Ethereum is about 43.5mhs, which is much slower than the 54.5mhs of the previous generation RX 5700 XT.
Some players pointed out that this is not to prove that AMD has also quietly limited the performance of Rx 6700 XT mining. In fact, it is not, because at the beginning of the design, amd has been building towards the game.
Specifically, Ethereum mining does not pay attention to the core frequency of GPU, more importantly, the video memory bandwidth. That’s why the best card for AMD is the radon VII, which has a total bandwidth of more than 1TBS. Similarly, RTX 3080 equipped with gddr6x is also the first choice for mining, while RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 have the same overall mining performance.
In rdna2 architecture, amd also introduces unlimited cache, which has no gain for mining.
