    First Time Team Red - thoughts and ideas?

    I wanted a 6800XT, but couldn't get one. So I bought the 3080 today. I was disappointed that I couldn't get the AMD GPU, because I wanted a full AMD built because of nostalgia I guess. I totally forgot the fact that my monitor is one of the older Gsync monitors that doesn't support Freesync, so...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    I went to Micro Center on Friday at 7am and I was 16th in line. I was able to get a RX6800. They didn't have any RX6800 XT in stock. I actually wanted a 5900X and a 6800XT, but ended up with 5800X and 6800. I haven't installed them yet because I need to water cool the GPU and I don't want to...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    20 minutes ago the EVGA FTW3 Ultra 3080 was in stock on Amazon for like 1ms... Got a notification that it is available and immediately tried to put in into my cart... OOS What a joke!

    You know.... I thought I wanted a 3080. But. If AMD comes through with stock...

    I still rock my 1080ti... I guess that was the best purchase I've ever made. I was even able to get one during the mining craze in 2017 for MSRP. But to be honest, I finally want something new, not because the 1080ti is too slow, but it's just time. I also was a little hyped about the 3080, but...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I think for the next 2 years, a 8 core CPU should be the sweet spot for gaming. I wanted also the 12 core, but really thought about it and came to the conclusion that it won't bring me any real benefit. If you really need more cores in the future, you can just buy a new CPU down the road. JUst...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    same happened to me. That's why i tried Microcenter and they had stuff, I was just too late for the 5900X. So it is not really a paper launch. Maybe we will get more stock soon.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    It is no paper launch. There were CPUs available. I bet they will come back in stock soon. Just check Microcenter everyday to get an idea if there is stock at all or not, even if you don't have a Microcenter near you.

    They charged me the money, I cancelled, money is back on my credit card already.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I'm going to cancel my BH order and will use the 5800X for at least 6 months or longer. Somewhere down the road I will get the 5959X i guess, but honestly, do we need more than 8 cores for gaming?

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    They had more then 10 at my Microcenter of the 5900X, no 5950X though. But Microcenter Chicago had some 5950X in stock. I guess we have to wait and see what happens over the next couple of days.

    Also I saw some people with EVGA 3080 cards checking out at Microcenter Westmont

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I went to Microcenter in Westmont IL at 9:30am All 5900X were sold out, I was 10 minutes too late. I was disappointed and watched review on my phone and got to the conclusion that the 5800X is enough for gaming. I asked them and they still had a couple 5600X and 5800X so I went with the 5800X

    If I can't get it online, I will go to Microcenter and try to get a 5900X there. Luckily it is only 10 minutes drive.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    The more you buy, the more you save. Folks... it's that simple. The more you buy the more you save. It just works. I'm afraid we will see the same next week with Ryzen 5000 and later this month with RX6000 :( I just want to finish my build. I mean I still rock my 1080ti and it still runs pretty...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    My Microcenter has a Asus Strix 3070 in stock. $629. LOL I thought they cost $499. Gosh Ampere is a huge fail.

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

    I really hope the Lemmings won't really care about the RX6000 launch, because they think Nvidia is king, but this was said about Ryzen too, everyone thought Intel is King and look where they are now. The same could happen to Nvidia if they don't pull their heads out of their butts.

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

    I think if AMD can beat Nvidias 3090 but it costs "only" $999, you could not only call that a win, you can call it ass whooping. My prediction is 6800XT will be $649 6900XT will be $999 My wish is 6800XT $599 6900XT $699

    Jensen Huang: Ampere shortages to last throughout the end of 2020

    I was excited to get my hands on the new GPUs, but right now, I don't really care anymore. My current GPU is still holding up OK. COD warzone and other games I'm playing are still running fine. Also AMD coming up with stuff, so we'll see what happens.

    You guys SURE you want Evga cards?

    The 10 series cards looked the best. The FTW3 was amazing. Now they have lost their way a bit with the design.

    Big Navi is coming

    I think it will come close to the 3080. But only time will tell. If AMD can deliver cards, which I doubt, they can outsell Nvidia, because they have almost no cards available. I guess the Ryzen 5000 launch will be a good indicator of availability.

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    The recommended settings for CYberpunk are pretty low. So it might come close to being maxed out on PS5...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I think this terrible launch has multiple reasons, Nvidia switching to Samsung 8nm (might have low yield rate), the corona virus lockdown still slows things down, bots buying up stock and high demand in general, because a lot of people are staying at home right now and want to play games. The...

    Still confused about AMD naming system

    I always wonder what is going on at the marketing departments of those companies. It started with Zen and the 1000 series, after that they started to mess it up by calling Zen + the 2000 series, those CPUs should just have been called something like Ryzen 7 1700X+ instead of Ryzen 2700X. With...

    Big Navi is coming

    It is not the same AMD anymore. I think they are trying much harder these days. But in the end only time will tell.

    Big Navi is coming

    Yeah that would be nice. My last AMD card was the 7970 which was actually pretty good. Hopes are up, but can they deliver enough stock? I guess the new Ryzen CPUs, will show the direction, if they will be available it could be a good indicator for RDNA2.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Microcenter Westmont IL... 3 Asus TUF in stock. They are going to open in one hour... Have fun. Also Microcenter Chicago:

    Who is buying a 3090?

    The value of this card is even worse than the 2080ti, but people are still buying it. Nvidia is very successful at brain washing.
