Our comprehensive Radeon RX 6700 XT evaluation tells you everything you need to know about AMD’s just-launched graphics card, including performance results with Smart Access Memory and real-time ray tracing active. But if you want to dive even deeper, don’t miss PCWorld’s exclusive interview with Radeon chief Scott Herkelman below.

Scott’s no stranger to the show, and he returned to answer well over an hour’s worth of questions about AMD’s latest RDNA 2 GPU from both us and the live audience. During the course of the interview he provided fresh insight into AMD’s forthcoming FidelityFX Super Resolution feature and other topics, like:

  • What AMD is doing to get more GPUs in the hands of gamers
  • The importance of Infinity Cache for gamers (and why miners hate it)
  • How the Radeon RX 6700 XT hit its ludicrous 2.4GHz speeds
  • Why the Radeon RX 6700 XT costs $480
  • AMD’s mindset around ray tracing
  • An update on FidelityFX Super Resolution, AMD’s DLSS rival, and why it might not necessary need machine learning to work
  • The benefits of AMD separating its RDNA and CDNA GPU families
  • Why miners should go buy GeForce first
  • Whether he can play Oasis’s Wonderwall on that guitar
  • …and more!

Witness it all in the video embedded below:
