    2070 super pulls 212w as tested, a 5700xt won't do that unless overclocked and powerlimit pushed up - mine draws about 180w at full load with stock settings, 220w when tweaked

    Always worth remembering rated TDP is a marketing tool and is not necessarily indicative of actual performance

    Just another entertainer in the end, but I think he is on the money for some of things he says. I watch most of his stuff, but I always have a bucket of salt nearby :)

    AFAIK "Control" is one the best looking and also the most demanding game out on PC atm.

    Control Ray Tracing Cinematic compilation released last week.


    This video explains why it looks soo good.


    Actual game play(yes its super fun)



    You can play "Control" at 1080p max(with RTX on max) with RTX2060.
    RTX2070 Super(or faster) can run "Control" at 1440p max(with RTX on max).

    Have you ever thought to do a two second google search to backup your statements before you start posting your bullshit in this thread again?
    Literally on the first search I found these 'Driver issues', 'Random crashes', 'BSODs' and 'FAULTY hardware' which you claim don't happen on NV.

    Your an adult, stop posting childish shit and grow up.

    Adult is a state of mind, not an age. As we can see...

    AMD has shaky launches. If you want stability, either wait or buy NVidia/Intel.
    NVidia will do better simply because of the bigger budget.. this is one of AMD's weaknesses. It's the reason there are so many driver issues with AMD products. NVidia can afford to send teams out to all these different developers and work with them to make drivers for games and other applications... you don't really see or hear about that with AMD much. Maybe they don't care to do it?
    Could it be? I don't know.

    It's called bribes.. It's the only way NV know how to play. The dirty game.. Much like Intel.

    But anyways, love that you're now backing away from your own claim that NV are faultless... as we all know they have issues too.

    I just put Azzan on ignore and now this thread is MUCH cleaner and more enjoyable. It's as if whatsitsface never existed... :)


    Meanwhile,



    The challenge is -

    I'm looking for a decent RX5700 XT card with a maximum length of 270mm.

    If anyone knows of any, do tell...

    If you are referring to failed RTX cards, it was due to faulty Micro memory.. personally I wouldn't blame NVidia for the issue, and it's long been fixed.


    Unlike AMD, NVidia never had any driver issues and they don't launch new cards with shitty blower coolers that overheats and hangs in game menu(Linus Tech review), worst cooler ever tested(Gamers Nexus).

    the more you post it. the more inclined i am toward amd. negative press has the opposite effect on me. ive had nvidiot cards. nothing wrong with the ones ive had. still, if i want an nvidia advert. i'll go to an nvidia thread. how's that for an idea?

    It'll be interesting. I was getting constant crashes in one place in the Wolfenstein New Colossus game, and I think the nVidia drivers are a main part of the problem. I'm keen to see if the same problem exists with the Radeon card.

    Oh wow, one game.. And not my style of game.

    But I noticed you missed my other point - the one about competition. Because you clearly want to pay >$1000 for a 2060 that performs like a GF2MX. Raytracing is nothing new and essentially still a gimmick. That leaves an AMD card at 1/2 the price and only slightly lower performance as a much better value option.

    After years of failure AMD doesn't have the money for a decent driver team which a shame because their latest hardware is decent IMO

    I've honestly never had an issue with their drivers over the years and their updates seem to be pretty on point with new games now days. Agree that they weren't the best for that in the past in that regard, but I still never had any issues (just not as much performance I suppose?).

    The only noticeable driver issue I can think of was many many years ago with my 6600gt it used to display my half life 2 water in green!

    Maybe I'll buy the GPU and stick it in my existing i7 6770 system and see what changes I can notice with that as the only variable...

    Do you think these 5500s will be low power like GTX 1050 Tis?
