Have we learned nothing from the CPU clock speed wars? You can't compare clock speed of two processors that are not the same. Just because AMD is clocked higher, doesn't necessarily mean it performs better.

seems this article is pretty careful about hedging any real comparison:

Comparatively, the GeForce RTX 3080 has 10GB of faster GDDR6 VRAM, but only clocks to 1.71 GHz. Depending on the interplay between clock speed and memory speed and bandwidth, the Radeon RZ 6900 XT might have the scope to take down the mighty $699 Nvidia graphics card.

Literally none of this matters.
  1. The "war" isn't won by the fastest card. If you look at Steam hardware survey, people tend to currently run Nvidia xx60 and xx70 cards. Enthusiasts aren't the biggest source of revenue. The big question will be: Can AMD make a card which beats the upcoming 3060, for an attractive price?
  2. Nvidia 30xx was a paper launch. Apart from performance-per-dollar, the question is: can AMD get more than a few hundred cards to retailers before Nvidia can sort out its distribution issues?
Gamers will not care about their team red/green loyalties much — for most gamers and parents it all depends on "which budget card can I actually buy this Christmas to replace my child's aging GTX 960"
