    [WCCF] [IgorsLab] Alleged performance benchmarks for the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT "Big Navi" graphics card have been leaked out.

    I take WCCFtech about as seriously as I take my horroscope. Fun to look at, the odd time it sort of lines up with reality out of coincidence, but I don’t ever take it seriously. Just wait until actual benchmarks come out.

    Should I sell my GPU?

    Given this, I think you’re asking the wrong question. If you don’t have a lot of time and are not playing many demanding games, then why bother upgrading at all? The 5700 is still quite a good card, particularly if you’re not playing a lot of demanding titles. I personally keep my stuff until...

    DOOM for potato heads still crunching z80s

    So it’s true, a potato can literally run Doom.

    Need a new video card by next Tuesday, choices are 5700XT or 2060 Super (yuck to both), which one for WoW?

    The hate is that it’s AMD, and people who haven’t owned an ATI card since the Rage 128 want you to know that their drivers suck.

    Has your G-Sync display locked you into the Nvidia EcoSystem?

    I don’t have a brand preference, but my current monitor is G-Sync and I’ll be going with Nvidia this time around for that reason. I would have much preferred a Freesync monitor, but the best deal at the time I bought my monitor happened to be G-Sync if you can believe it, and since Nvidia cards...

    AMD Confirms Zen 3's Performance Is Monstrous and Speculation Thread

    Anyone who believed that was an idiot to begin with. They’re a publicly traded company. They exist to make money for their shareholders, they don’t exist to do anyone a solid. AMD raising prices when they have a solid lead should surprise no one.

    3080 - What's the difference? Asus ROG vs TUF?

    It does for the 3090, but we won’t be able to say for the 3070 until the it launches. My understanding is that the power for the 3080 and 3090 is being limited in the video BIOS which is limiting gains from overclocking in the 3080 and 3090. Whether or not the same design decision is made in...

    3080 - What's the difference? Asus ROG vs TUF?

    This. I don’t see the point of paying an extra $150 for the Strix when overclocking these cards is only yielding like 3% extra performance, and the TUF is unlocked anyway and has good thermal performance. Save your money, just get the TUF. The $700 version of the TUF looks like it’s one of...

    RTX 3070 Mobile Rumors and Speculations Thread

    It’s probably the same scale they used to say the 3080 was double the performance.* *Double the performance in Minecraft and Quake II RTX. This is why people shouldn’t panic sell a video card based on marketing claims.

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    To be fair, I don’t entirely fault Nvidia for the current supply issue for a few reasons: 1) From what I’ve been seeing, retailers said that launch inventory was not smaller than normal, so this is an insatiable demand problem more than anything else. That and bots. Something needs to be done...

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    It’s not just Nvidia. Don’t take marketing claims seriously in general, period. Remember “wait for Vega”? How’d that work out for everyone?

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    Yes, but with a 5700XT instead of a 2060, you don’t get to run RTX and experience gaming in all it’s ray traced glory at 20FPS.

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    You’d think, though, that someone who ponied up $1200 USD for a 2080Ti only to sell it at a fire sale price less than two years later would know enough by now to not make a decision like that based on a marketing slide showing benchmarks from unidentified games. Don’t we all know this by now...

    What is 8k gaming?

    1) DLSS isn’t actually rendering 8K pixels, so it doesn’t count. It’s still an approximation, albeit a good one. 2) Even if you could count DLSS as 8K, only select titles currently support it, there aren’t many yet, and even in the ones that do, performance varies, with titles for graphics...
