    Youtube autoplay took me to this in the background whilst doing other things. I didn't realise until near the end that it was actually an extra keynote when I brought the page to the front of my workspace

    Frank Azzor, you surely are monotone and boring fella

    Well I think barring any major issues with reviews on the 6000 series I will have an all AMD platform sometime next year. I have always liked ATi and owned most their top end cards.. never in 100 years did I think that AMD will end up with pretty much both crowns but I am happy and excited for something different. I'm pretty sure the 6800XT + 5900 will be my combo which should see some decent gaming performance for a few years at least :) I'm likely only going to jump to 1440p or UltraWide so still not sold on 4k as I really want 100+fps :p

    so taking that into account the 6800XT should be almost exactly the same as the 3080 on an intel platform.

    Buy the 6800 and save $200, then flash it to a 6800XT for 99% of the XT performance and rejoice in the good old days!

    AMD would be a pretty good place to be working right now I'm guessing.

    Surprisingly, AMD stock is still going down today. Coronavirus really is doing a number on the American market

    The charts AMD showed with fps numbers had the 6800 scaling very close to the 60/72CU difference in both 4k and 1440p, yet the price reduction is less than 60/72, giving the 6800XT more perf/$

    I really hope that this period where AMD will be competitive with both CPU and GPU can set them up top be able to continually compete on both fronts. Lets be honest, the only reason they haven't been competing on the GPU high end front is because of limited cash flow for a long time. They had to just focus on the mid range where the money is, to try and bank coin. Don't forget it wasn't that long ago that they almost went under. They recruited well and finally had a hit with their CPU's with Zen. That has gave them the money to work on improving Zen with 2 and now 3, and also helped with bringing the GPU's back to the top. With the products they have now announced on both fronts, this could be the moment where they finally get enough capital behind them to become the powerhouse we all think they are when in fact they are not far from the little engine that could. The more they can put into research, the better their products will become. And we all win with that.

    Thats probably to do with the AMD-Xilinx merger as its an all stock takeover. Folk are selling AMD shares to buy Xilinx shares because they will get more AMD shares than they originally had.

    Edit: ahh... the whole market is down... meh

    I'll be getting a 6800XT pending reviews. Glad I didn't get the 3080.

    Where have we seen a cache bandwidth argument made before? Anyone remember Xbox One original ESRAM quotes :D

    From a straight price performance perspective, I think it's definitely the winner, especially for gaming.

    I am tossing up getting one and keeping my 1080Ti for machine learning stuff, or selling the 1080Ti for whatever I can get and getting a hopefully price reduced 3080.So many options, but none actionable yet.
