    I have the Red Devil XTX. It's a superb card, and for now, it pushes all games way beyond what I want/need in games. Moreover, the cooling is excellent, it overclocks very well (flirting with stock 4090 in rasterization), and runs cool. I've...

    jhatfie replied to the thread 4090 worth it over 7900 XTX?.
    Agreed, at least at the quality settings (DLSS and FSR2) upscaling at 4k looks excellent 99% of the time. Balanced settings are pretty meh on occasion though (FSR more so than DLSS). Although I have not tried DLSS3 yet, almost want to pick up a...

    jhatfie replied to the thread Tips on actually getting a 4090?.
    Yeah there seems to be some weirdness going on over there. I am having issues with my new BB credit card. I was supposed to get a $100 new cardmember bonus, it says I was issued 0 in my account even though I have the card and it is activated...

    Yeah I suppose that is the real question. Just an example with the numbers, but would Nvidia prefer to sell 500,000 4070ti cards at $300 profit each or sell double the cards at 1,000,000, but 1/2 the profit at $150 each. If they stick to their...

    I think you'll like it. Fun card to play with and cools pretty well. I am still sort of tempted to try a 4090 if I could get one for the $1599 MSRP just for the hell of it, but the XTX has been rock solid for me so far (unless I undervolt too...

    A XFX Merc 7900XTX coming my way, Jan 26 from BB. It was either that or the ASUS Tuf 4090, whichever was available first. AIBs need to pick up more on AMD GPUs, it has been bleak for the 7900XTX. Nvidia 4090 availability is also very weak, maybe...

    I had the 110c issue on my 7900xtx. I knew nearly immediately there was an issue (junction temp ramping up to the thermal limit within two minutes and throttling is not by design on any electronic device I've ever seen), and had figured out...

    He doesn’t realize how uncommon this issue is and how complicated it might be to detect. I am sure they test card and it boots and rest is good even in open air vertical position it probably isn’t detected during testing even if they ran a game...

    100%. That gigabyte gaming oc model has been in stock almost non stop for the last week. A few other models hang around for hours and hours. Like NKD said, not sure is up with BestBuy though, they have not seemed to have any significant drops...

    Pretty sure AMD verified it was not a design flaw with the reference cards, it was a manufacturing defect on a few batches of coolers that did not have enough enough water in the vapor chamber impacting a small percentage of cards. I've heard...

    Use gpu-z sensors to graph your graphics card over time. Gives you better insight to what it is doing at any given time.

    I have just been using the AMD software. But afterburner should be good.
  • jhatfie
    That hot spot temp seems high for the cooling potential on that card. But my questions is what is your ambient room temp? What is the actual fan speed when hitting those temps? If it is not consistently that peak 1300rpm or higher I would test...

    jhatfie replied to the thread 7950x with XFX Merc 319 7900xtx.
    Yeah the XFX was overclocked and the 7700x has a negative voltage offset, which does increase the clocks a decent bit.

    Not sure but maybe that error is from one of the tessellation settings in the Adrenalin software? Also, I have to say that the XFX card looks pretty dang good. Although I need to pull it out and install the brace, just to be safe.

    Slightly used. No vapor chamber issues and been used quiet a bit, stress testing and playing RDR2 and Cyberpunk for hours. Works fine. Junction temp is usually within. 15-20c of edge temp. With my case good airflow normally in the 80s...
