AMD's best Big Navi GPU may only be a match for Nvidia's RTX 2080 series

The flagship AMD Big Navi RDNA 2 graphics card is reportedly set to deliver performance on par with the RTX 2080 Ti, which means AMD is not expecting to take on the top-end RTX 3080 Ti from Nvidia.
Report by Coreteks claims the top RDNA 2 GPU codenamed Sienna Cichlid, will be around the same level as the RTX 2080 Ti, though in best-case scenarios it could beat it by as much as 15% in terms of gaming performance. This level of performance is expected to pit the top Big Navi card against the RTX 3080, with the AMD Radeon card likely to be priced to undercut the second-tier Nvidia Ampere GPU as it will be launched later. This latest report, however, claims that there will be a reveal event in early September for the new AMD RDNA 2 cards, with a release date on October 7.
