[FPS Benchmarks] ARK: Survival Evolved on AMD Radeon RX 6800M and RX 6600M – the RX 6800M is way faster

ARK: Survival Evolved is a game that has good graphics, decent sound quality, but most importantly, its gameplay is something different compared to the other games on the market. You have to survive in a hostile environment full of dinosaurs and other creatures.

As we said, visually, the game looks good but the title isn’t very light at all. The Epic preset is a big challenge for a lot of GPUs but the game looks very eye-candy on this quality level. That’s why for today’s comparison, we picked two fast  AMD GPUs – the Radeon RX 6800M and RX 6600M.
