The RX 6700 XT is considered a high-end graphics card and is an all-around good GPU for Elden Ring. Elden Ring is a very resource-demanding game and is comparable to other AAA titles like Halo: Infinite. The system requirements for Elden Ring show that it requires 8GB of VRAM for recommended requirements. Minimum requirements are 4GB of VRAM.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of quality benchmarks for the 6700 XT and Elden Ring. Therefore, referencing the 6600 XT benchmarks will prove helpful to determine how well the 6700 XT will perform.
Looking at this, we can see that we have a minimum benchmark that the 6700 XT will perform to. But how much better will the 6700 XT perform than the 6600 XT? It’s tough to say but we can look at the specifications from AMD’s website to learn more.
|Compute Units||Base Frequency||Boost Frequency||Ray Accelerators||VRAM|
|RX 6600 XT||32||2589||2359||32||8GB|
|RX 6700 XT||40||2321||2581||40||12GB|
It’s difficult to say how much these increases will impact the performance of Elden Ring. But speculating, a person could deduce that performance increases would be roughly 10%-20%. What does that mean for FPS and performance in Elden Ring? It could potentially spell a 10%-20% FPS improvement. Or it might mean that stuttering is reduced 6700 XT. Likely, though it will not mean that you can go to 4K resolution with high graphics settings. The change might just mean better performance on 1440P with high/max graphics settings.
