Radeon RX 6000 Launch Signals AMD’s Valiant Return To High End PC Gaming GPUs
Earlier this week, AMD put a stake in the ground for its PC gaming offering. Though the company has been steadily taking share from its chief CPU rival Intel for a few years now, it has been about 7 years (by my count) since AMD has been able to compete head-to-head with NVIDIA in high-end gaming GPUs.
