very nice and do you have a delivery date ?
You just need a capable case. I have a 6800xt in an ITX build but it did need some jigging to get it in.
about 1 week to go
That upsets me greatly.
Dont cross the streams!
being serious, how do those drivers coexist on that thing? given how its been when ive changed drivers to go from one team to the other on a pc in the past, ive always thought the idea of both on the one machine would be... asking for trouble?
IOMMU passthrough to a VM?
Drivers seem very well behaved together. This is a brand new windows install so we'll see how it holds up over time, but so far it seems to function like we know it technically should be able to.
BTW: I would never have considered this unholy union if it weren't for how profitable it will be over time. It's a strange time we live in.
The nice thing is that I'll now be able to do back to back testing of Nvidia and Radeon cards, and even though they are running at 8x each, they are both at PCIE 4.0, so I don't expect performance will suffer much at all.
Wouldn't be surprised if the Nvidia drivers cause you problems over time. They've always caused me problems, it's why I jumped back to AMD .
Managed to find a reference 6900xt, was wrapped until I put it through it’s first test and the coil whine was insane.
Google says it’s common with these but getting conflicting reports, from psu change, to 24hr stress testing, to RMA. Does anyone here have the same issue?
Absolutely no harm in a stress test first I reckon. Sorry to hear, I've heard it in some vids with background fan noise etc for comparison and the coil whine can be insane.
No above average whine for my card. Actually quite the opposite in fact, this thing has less than my 1070. Could hear that even with headphones, this I cant really hear it.
Luck of the draw then. It doesn’t help that I’m using an open air case (xproto), and will probably get worse once I install the Waterblock.
I'm either deaf, possible, or I've not had coil whine for almost as many years as I've been buying high end PSUs.
Well I'm joining the club finally, snagged a card from PCCG and shipped out same day
What did you grab?
Red Devil U
Air cooled ofc, just for simplicity
My pc is too far away to hear any whine (and I've never noticed any), but I have a mate with a reference 6900 XT and he say's that it sings with high framerates. I guess it makes sense, they're pretty high frequency cards. You could try an fps limiter, or dialling down your voltage, I run mine at 95% in the drivers as the extra voltage doesn't seem to benefit clocks. From what I have heard the 24h stress testing is a myth. I've seen various PSU's that claim to reduce coil whine in various ways, like having capacitors before the power connector but I don't think this really does anything if you already have a decent PSU.
Might be time to instead cover every flat panel inside your case with Combination Butyl/Foam Super Sound Deadener | Jaycar Electronics
Keep the noise down and the heat in?
It should be alright if you don't block the holes m8
