Maybe AMD is the one that had all the bots at Nvidia's launch?
5900XT doesn't have HBM, there is still a lolly in the ash tray.
Very worried about the availability now. Would be lots of people cancelling their RTX 3080s/3090s to free up cash for it. Will be lots of competition and scalpers to deal with
Yeah, fair concern too. I think that everyone has been burned by the great GPU shortage of September 2020. I am sure that all our thoughts and prayers are with every other person trying to get a GPU.
No mention of Ray tracing or DSLL 2.0 equiv and making up the gaps in performance in some titles by doing comparisons while using RAGE mode and smart memory access
Common man really
Hopefully AMD have shored up plenty of chips by now (GDDR6 shouldn't be in short supply) and given AIBs more time to test reference and third party design with the chips. The retail channels need to be fillin up!
SMART memory and RAGE mode are yet to be seen, and of course numbers verified by third parties, however it appears you were notably off in your prediction anyway.
I'll be true. I kept expectations low in order to avoid more disappointment this year, but have been pleasantly surprised! Awesome news for us!
You mean apart from the entire part they devoted to ray tracing?
Yeah I mean acutal performance numbers, I didn't see any benchmark numbers for Ray tracing titles
That's because they're way behind
6800xt 250w total board power means it's essentially the same as a 5700xt.
As I am unable to expand my open loop due to mATX space constraints, I might have to settle for a 6800xt I think. Unsure how much more that 50w on the 6900xt would heat the loop up with my 3900x
We got the whole planet wanting new cards. Cancelling a 30xx pre-order for a AMD order could put you right back in the same situation as there's no idea how much AMD stock will show up here or how many people will pre-order. Plus AMD is launching down the track to begin with, which adds more time to getting one of their cards anyway.
Would be pointless to report on this at this time, since none of the developers has had a chance at optimising their raytracing usage for AMD hardware.
Stop clutching at straws, you didn't mention that. AND, RT titles aren't a measure of general performance considering majority of titles do not offer RT still.
Chicks dig guys that can say that they're wrong my guy
This is a greta step forward for amd but its their nvidia 2000 series step equivalent, once again this is the gen to skip with RDNA3 being the one I'll wait with great interest as thats the one nvidia needs to be worried about
Potentially so. Regardless, how many people actually enable raytracing in games that largely benefit from high framerate? Even 30 series performance goes in the toilet.
It's not to say that shouldn't be a consideration, but I'd much prefer supporting a more open standard than Nvidia's "the way you're meant to be played" with developer lock-in on proprietary implementations.
Nvidia don't care about the top .1% of the market who blows the cost of a car on a GPU. They care about the midrange where quantity and margin lies. In that area, AMD has likely brough some serious competition right now.
6800xt was also 300W, it was the 6800 at 250W
I still can't believe the 6800 was so pricy 60CU vs 72 with slower memory (if previous leaks were correct) and only $70 diff on rrp. I was hoping for a 3070 killer.
AMD: announces matching performance, beats on price and wattage.
Nvidia fans: it's still not that great
being the owner of a 3080 and 2nd on the way.
time to keep my 1080 Ti's, and sell the 3080's at inflated prices (still be idiots who wil pay a nice penny for them, and use the 1080 ti's as stop gaps, and order a 6800XT and 6900XT (along with 5800x and 5950x), an ALL amd system,
Last time i had all AMD system, was literally
AMD 6400+ BE Edition with an X800, wooho!
