Well I thought I was "settling" for a Radeon 6800 as that is the only card I could find on stock on Newegg and snag before thousands of card hunters took it away from me. I was WRONG.
This video card is BLAZING fast!
It's a 100% FPS improvement for me in Shadow of the Tombraider over my...
The used 2080 Super seems like a pretty decent value if you can't get your hands on an MSRP 3060 Ti.
The overall performance should be on par, with a bit of an edge in rasterization to the 2080S and probably an edge to ray tracing to the 3060Ti.
Pretty cool that they give you a free mouse mat with the 1k graphics card... BUT will it run Crysis at 4k? ;)
PS Every gamer will die a little inside if you tell us you bought a 6900XT for your son to run games at 1080p, :P
Yup a 5600x. Will probably give a better boost than a block. You can upgrade over time though.
I’m pairing the 6800 with a 5900x so once I got that going I should be getting to my 120hz 1440p monitor refresh cap.
TBH if you insist on Intel I don't see why you don't buy a 9900K instead.
The performance is nearly identical to the 10700k and you can get it on sale for just $320.
Of course for single threaded performance the 5600X will blow away both at $299 price point as well.
As far as Intel favored...
I mean it’s really impressive that you can overclock the hell out of this 6800xt card and beat a stock 3090. Realistically the scalperbots will gobble this up and you’ll see it on eBay going for $1500. 😂
