Hey guys what’s the better card the 6900xt or 3080ti if paired with a 5950x (the 5950x will be used for streaming encoding)

also the 3080ti cost slightly more where I live

If streaming then Nvidia would be a better choice unless you plan to get a capture card. Nvidia GPU's have an Nvenc encoder built in that's utilized currently by streaming software, it produces better quality streams without the performance drop. Also at 1080p it honestly doesn't matter whether you go 3080TI or 6900XT, those cards are mega overkill for 1080 gaming. Though oddly enough 6000 series AMD cards have shown to provide much better 1080p gaming experiences.

So the choice is really up to you and which card you can currently get your hands on. Either options are pretty good, but Nvidia is so far the more matured option, but a little more pricier (at MSRP that is, scalper prices may vary).

My bad I was asking what was it closer to 3090 or a 3080ti lol
It varies actually, it's more closer to a 3080 Ti but oddly some games are optimized for AMD so the 6900XT in some cases beats the 3090. In the case of warzone, the 6900XT actually gets practically the same level of performance as a 3090. And combined with an AMD 5000 series CPU, you'll be able to utilize bar support which can pull an extra 1-5% performance gain. For most other games though the 3090 will be better, and the 3080 TI will perform about the same.

3080Ti just because you mentioned Warzone. Warzone is an NVIDIA supported title. Also like @Newtonius said, it has more efficient encoding for live streaming. Yes, the CPU option would provide better quality, but can still warrant a lower FPS.

Gamers Nexus and JayzTwoCents seem to think that the 3080ti is a poor value for money compared to the 3080, although JayzTwoCents did also have access to an EVGA FTW3 card that runs as fast as a 3090 for less money, so I would say that the overclocked cards, when they start becoming available, would be better value than a founders edition.
