The RX 6800 XT consumed 243 watts of power on average across the eight tests. Conversely, the RX 6750 XT averaged 191 watts of power consumption. 

This makes the RX 6750 XT 26% more power-efficient than the RX 6800 XT, as far as 1440P gaming is concerned. 

Both cards consumed much less than their maximum TDP rating while also maintaining a higher difference (26.1%) than the difference in their ratings. (20%)

Thermal Performance

 Average Temperature Perfromance
Average Temperature @1440p (Image By Tech4Gamers)

The Radeon RX 6800 XT averaged a temperature of 75.1°C across the eight benchmarks, whereas the RX 6750 XT averaged 65.3°C. 

Hence, the RX 6750 XT proved 15% more thermally efficient than the RX 6800 XT in 1440P gaming. 

Costs And Availability

Let’s talk about the RX 6800 XT first. It received an (unofficial) $150 price cut from its launch MSRP of $649, to $499. At the time of writing this, two of XFX’s variants (Speedster Merc 319 and Speedster Merc 319 CORE) are available for this $499 price tag. A few other variants are also available, albeit at a slightly higher price tag. 

As for the RX 6750 XT, it also received a massive unofficial price drop to $329. However, only one variant (MSI Gaming X Trio) is available at that price. Most other variants are between the $350 and $400 range, which is still a really good price!

The electricity costs should also be considered, as the RX 6800 XT consumed 26.1% more power during our tests. 

What We Recommend

Despite the seemingly small difference between the two cards indicated by their model numbers, they have quite a big performance and price gap. The decision to get either card relies solely on your budget.

If you want to get a graphics card which will get you by on 1440p, the 6750 XT is not too shabby.

If you have the budget for it, the RX 6800 XT gives you exceptional performance for a reasonable price.
