    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    My 5800X ordered from Amazon early Nov 21 arrived yesterday, Nov 28. Pulled the 2700X out of an Asus Prime X570 P and installed the new chip. Civ VI Gathering Storm AI benchmark went from 66 sec per turn to 31 sec. Witcher 3 @ 4K with a 6800 went from sinking to 40 fps riding through the land...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    I have the 6800 running a 4K CX48 over HDMI with 2 Dell 1600x900 monitors on the sides connected via DP. I didn't even have to set up a multi-monitor profile when I installed the Radeon driver - it detected the 3 monitors and arranged them as I wanted. I did have to dig through Windows...

    https://www.techpowerup.com/review/asus-radeon-rx-6800-xt-strix-oc-lc-liquid-cooled/39.html 6800XT looks really good with H2O cooling, over 2700MHz OC. Asus is upcharging $250 for the AIO, though. ☹️ Makes the 6900XT more tempting once you get to those prices.

    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    Dude, with Nvidia you can use DLSS to upscale 1440p to 4K then use DSR to downscale 4K to 1080p. It's win/win! The more you buy, the more you save!!!

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    The 5800X I ordered from Amazon on 11-21 had the ship date moved from Jan 7-17 to Dec 22-Jan 2 to Dec 2-12 to Dec 1. Looks like AMD is doing better than anticipated in getting stock shipped.

    My 6800 is out for delivery. Looking forward to connecting it to my new CX 48 to see how Freesync works.

    Buying hardware has become like buying concert tickets, back when there was such a thing as a concert.

    Probably because of the scalper listings already on eBay.
