All mine Fold 24x7 so blocks are a must have here.
Who else here had a pre-order with Harvey Norman for a reference MSI Radeon RX 6800 XT back in January this year for $1,069??
They just cancelled my order and refunded me.
I've got an order with Harvey Norman, haven't heard from them at all.
Same.. how Flipping annoying!!! no interest would of been nice for a good will gesture compensation! Now I'm wondering if Scorp will do the same...
This triggered me:
Based on this and in accordance with our terms and Pursuant to clause 5(9) of the Harvey Norman Online Terms and Conditions of Sale (available at www.harveynorman.com.au/terms-and-conditions/), Harvey Norman Online has not accepted your order and would like to arrange a full refund of the payment made by you.
Its a different T&C?!...
Just noticed that Scorpy has the 6900XT liquid cooled reference for $2999.
Looks like it might run a bit warmer than you'd like - not that surprised with a 120mm radiator I guess.
3k is more than I would pay, pretty much every 6900xt will hit a 20.5k+ timespy score with some tweaking.
While temps are a bit warm it probably runs pretty quietly given the whole thing is cooled by a single 120mm fan.
Yeah, I wouldn't pay that either.
I have to sit down and figure out my Red Devil this weekend though. I haven't had time to do anything much except whack it into my case (I'm still using my old PC at the moment), but I did try running Time Spy a couple of times, and it kept throwing errors and not completing at stock settings (with the BIOS switch set to OC, and AUTOMATIC > DEFAULT set in the driver tuning). Wondering if I have a dud card or if it's something else. Ran DDU and installed the latest drivers, so I don't -think- it's that.
Any settings I should try? I'm a bit of a noob with AMD GPUs.
Would be interesting to see if they start selling non reference RX6800 XT cards soon. ACCC ????
Heatkiller blocks are very sexy, can be pricy but usually worth it
Anyone remember the scorptec priority pre-order way back in November? Did anyone actually get allocated a card?
I’m still waiting 8 months on with no updates or eta since.
Got this from them yesterday.
Crap. I never put any money down so can’t complain too much, but still sucks
That's what I thought... but not yet heard from scorp..
It is nice of them to provide $20 credit... Better than flipin HN...
Well, that was a bit of a weird one. Turns out my problem wasn't the GPU at all. It was PBO Fmax Enhancer (I had it turned on).
It would happily run anything else I threw at it. I ran corecycler for over 24hrs with no errors, and also ran Prime95 for over 24hrs with no errors (it's my work machine, so I wanted to make sure it was rock stable). For some reason 3DMark was causing problems.
I turned off Fmax Enhancer today, and no more problems at all. Weird.
I'm hoping gamersnexus or another youtuber does a teardown of the liquid cooled 6900xt
Having ideas of adding to a loop or even just swapping the puny rad *dreams*
More gradual trends towards normal pricing, XFX 6800xt for $1700 in stock.
Good sign, that's only $300 more than when I purchased mine in February!
Of course not everyone plays at 4k.. How about some 1440p action..
Seems like pretty playable frame rates for AMD.
