    Guys I’ve asked this in the Alienware monitor thread but thought I’d have more luck with an answer here.

    I have an Alienware AW3821DW which is a g-synch ultimate panel. Some reports say that it is working perfectly with AMD freesynch. And the adaptive refresh works fine.

    Anyone running a 6000 series card on a g-synch screen that can comment? I’m looking at a 6900XT.

    Nothing from them I called and asked, they said if I’m dissatisfied I can get a refund, but they don’t have an ETA.

    Running a 6800 with the same monitor, it seems to be all OK?

    Thanks mate. I bit the bullet last night and ordered the 6900XT red devil. I’ve found a few more reports of it working so I thought I’d take the gamble. I don’t suppose you play Warzone at all?

    Just saw they are $2599 at PCCG and the cheapest 6800XT is $2199. I'd 100% get the 6900XT for a few hundred more. Crazy.

    Contrary to Gibbon above, it doesn't work for me. Never paid attention to it until now so thanks :confused:

    I think I did read somewhere that some gsync monitors are compatible, and some aren't. Something to do with the version of gsync module or something.

    X34P uses a version 1 g-synch module so it won’t work. Needs to be a monitor made after late 2019.

    never bought a GSYNC monitor for this reason. Always went freesync monitors.

    eventhough i use nvidia cards at present, my freesync monitors work fine with Gsync.

    Most newer FreeSync monitors are all Gsync Compatible.

    Gsync monitors that work with freesync, well thats news to me.

    Its not the Nazi symbol though... its a left facing swastika, not a right facing swastika as per Nazi party adoption.

    You are making a mountain out of a molehill :)

    Yes, but bringing facts into the discussion ignores Godwin's law and is not nearly as self-fulfilling as linking AMD to Nazis on an internet forum :D.

    On a serious note, the fact that you called it a swastika and not a sauwastika is a pretty good indication of the enduring association with the Nazi party the symbol retains in the western world, regardless of orientation.

    Has anyone with a 6900xt had issues with PSU below the minimum recommended? I'm very tempted to get one, but only have a Corsair HX750 PSU, running an OC'd i5-9600k system which with a bit of testing with my current 1060ti is pulling about 330W from the PSU Max (running Intel Burn Test and Heaven benchmark simulataneously).
    330w plus GPU ~350W = maths and gives me ~50W spare, but doesn't account for any power spikes well above this. :wired:
    New PSU as well, or see how it go and upgrade only if I have unexpected shutdowns?

    You might get away with it, but if I were throwing $2.5k+ on a 6900XT, I'd be getting a new PSU as well. I tend to go overboard with PSUs a bit though - they're much more efficient when they're not running near peak load.

    I don't see how you're calculating it at close to max - it's a 750W PSU that you have right? Can't see a 6900 in your system pulling more than about 550W (total for the system) unless you've got tons of fans, HDDs or watercooling pumps etc.

    EDIT: Also HX750 is platinum rated - it should be able to handle that load inclusive of varying power draw without shitting the bed.

    I’m running my reference 6900xt + 5600x Ryzen with a Corsair sf750.
    No problems in the 2 months together.
    Admittedly I would like 850+, but limited with small form factor options.

    Also, optimum tech YouTube, ran a 3080 + 5950x Ryzen, watercooled with pumps and all, on a sf600 psu!
