    Umart had them for $1299 the other day. I almost settled for one. It's a mad world at the moment.

    Yep seen that. People pay it as well which is why the prices are stupid :rolleyes:.

    Anyone watercooled or seen watercooled cards? Wondering how these respond to liquid metal vs normal TIM.

    In regards to where our cheap AMD gpu's are... well... they are in a shit load of consoles;

    Suspect Microsoft will have similar numbers of shipped units :(

    Is it worth buying the 6900xt over the 6800xt? :D

    Really happy with the build quality of my reference 6800, feels solid and weighs a lot. The card is a tad faster than my 3070 was and does it while staying cool and quiet. AMD has nailed it this generation.

    Awesome! Can't wait to get my hands on the 6800XT! After watching reviews and benchmarks all day, its head to head with 3080 :) I don't care about ray tracing just a gimmick feature.

    AFAIK Trixx boost doesn't work on ultrawide resolutions.

    That may well change though, originally it didn't work on any dx11 games.

    So if I'm understanding that right the minimum PSU / PSU most of us have is way the hell lower than the actual power draw... That's really not good. Seems like it's far worse with Nvidia cards though but AMD ones have insane peaks.

    Edit, would be nice to have a translated version though.

    I only have a 1440P display, with a 5700XT Nitro+, but the limited number of options with Trixx make it about the most useless piece of software ever IMHO. I want it to give me some control over volts, frequency, memory etc, but it has none of that at all. Just a few resolution settings, hardware monitor, RGB. POS. The only reason I even have it installed is that it controls the RGB (on cards with RGB) and the hardware monitor is moderately useful.

    BIOS switching is potentially useful for some I guess, but I'd only be switching BIOS if I'd borked one of them with a custom BIOS and needed to go to the backup, which I'd obviously have to use the physical BIOS switch for anyway, if I can't get a display in Windows to have any chance of actually loading Trixx in the first place.

    I might use the hardware monitor on my new 7" display (currently in the mail somewhere), as a dedicated off screen display built into my case. Or lash out and pay for the full version of Aida64 for a much better and infinitely more configurable hardware monitor. - which is probably what I'll do eventually, despite generally being tighter than a fishes arsehole by nature.

    I can't think of anything else to use Strixx for that actually matters, once the RGB was set to my liking, which took 2 clicks initially and all done. Runway, full brightness,1/2 speed, and the number of steps to colour change slider all the way to the left, perfect :thumbup:.

    I'm a set and forget person when it comes to RGB, most of the time I can't even see my GPU so it's not something I have a lot of use for - when I finally finish the damn custom case I will absolutely have no use at all for RGB. I even installed the latest version last night, from 7.5 to 8.0, just in case it had more to offer, but nada. It reminds me of Nvidia GeForce experience, helps force you onto the latest drivers and shit but functionality is limited.

    I want it to be like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X, something actually useful. Its a shame, I am a huge fan of Nitro + cards, I want Sapphire to offer some decent OC software to go with it :(

    The Adrenalin drivers have the overclocking built in, it used to be called Wattman. Just use that, simple.

    Yeah I use Wattman sometimes. I just would have preferred to have everything in one package. Trixx is so disappointing.
