    Well, that's a lot of 3080s...

    For a $7 cafeteria meal? Not worth it to me.

    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...

    Naw, I'll just enjoy my 6800 with my new CX 48.

    Scalper group says it has ‘no regrets’ over reselling 3,500 Playstation 5 consoles

    If anybody defending the scalpers here wants to buy a very lightly used Radeon 6800 for $1500, let me know. /s

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today! 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.

    That seems to be more than any other model so far.

    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.

    Probably because of the scalper listings already on eBay.

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    AMD site only led to a "page does not exist" message. Newegg only showed a Gigabyte card that's OOS. Refreshing all 4 (2 6800XT and 2 6800) items on Amazon finally got me a 6800 for the price of a 6800XT. What a bargain!

    Six monitors and video card question

    I don't know about other manufacturers, but LG has software that divides their monitors into "virtual" screens, so you could have 4 applications snapped to 4 1080P sections of a 4K screen.

    Nvidia doesn't know whether to shit or go blind.

    Who are you in GPU? Please. Thank you!

    Is a 1080Ti soft now? I'd say I'm [H]ard enough not to give AMD or nVidia my $$$ until they produce a card that's actually an upgrade at a price comparable to what I paid for my current card. I'm going to try to get a 6800XT.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    I want a 6900XT, but I'll probably go for a 6800XT. Those graphs make me feel better about "settling". I don't see $350 worth of performance over the 6800XT, but that's usually how it goes with the top card. I'm more interested in the minimum FPS - we'll see how that goes with the reviews. I...

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

    Three generations of cards is enough to establish a consumer perception that "Nvidia=faster". That's why I think AMD still needs to hit Nvidia on price this generation. Being a better value WITH better performance is going to be the quickest way to win back mind share. Then AMD can charge...

    Navi 21 XT to clock up to 2.4GHz

    If the XT is 250W, I could see AMD doing an XTX at 325 or so. Wouldn't be more power hungry than the 3080.
  35. J

    Navi 21 XT to clock up to 2.4GHz And supposedly there is an XTX version with higher performance. With the 5700XT clocking around 2GHz, that's a 20% clock increase on top of the doubled compute units.

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

    I will be very interested to see if the 5900X is 6x2 or 8+4. For binning purposes, 6x2 makes a lot of sense. In that case, I would prefer a full CCX 3800X to the 2X 6 core solution, since I don't do a lot of encoding.
