I will take this level of performance any day of the week for $349 over an 8 or 12 GB card with a narrow cut-down bus.
Every title I've run to date is smooth.
It may not have the peak fps as the RTX3060Ti or the RX6600 but I'll take the 'fluid' running all day and twice on Sunday over those two...
Yes on the noise and blocking....the actual gameplay footage does not have that or any stutter at all.
That A770 is extremely impressive where smoothness is concerned.
It may not be the framerate king but it more than makes up for that aspect in other areas.
I took 20 cars to Mugello...in low...
Intel ARC A770 in Assetto Corsa at the Nords.
The card is running every racing title I currently have at better levels and fps than my previous card...for around half of the price.
It is very smooth as well in most titles.
None of the big reviewers seem to have revisited ARC A-750 and A-770 after the initial 'bloodbath'.
The cards still have many quirks to be ironed out but discouraging Intel by totally ignoring the progress to date, is not a good thing.
The drivers have done some things right...especially after...
Sadly, pricing on the RTX4070Ti is what happens when people cock up and beg Nvidia to drive their virtual di*k to the hilt.
During the height of the pandemic, supply and demand ruled.
They could get away with charging whatever they wanted under the guise of shortages.
This new gouging, is...
I received my card on Wednesday evening and so far, I like the A770-16.
It is not a card for the mainstream...not yet anyway.
It still has quirks but I can work around many of those over time.
The .exe driver package proved to be a complete PITA.
It hung my system right off the bat as it was...
Our people have been programmed to believe the Chinese can only steal technology.
It is part of the indoctrination to keep hate in place.
As you've stated, that is a dangerous and short-sighted approach to take.
It is not about a 'love-fest with China. It is about reality of the situation...
AMD is in with it's biggest opportunity thus far to make massive in-roads on Nvidia's market.
What they do next will determine the percentages they take.
They had one other massive opportunity and blew it during the height of the pandemic when they neglected the gamer allocation in favor of...
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Anybody buying this card is a 'certified' idiot. No doubt of any kind remains.
Long-term wealthy people do not make stupid purchases...that is why they retain wealth.
I suspect the people buying this card are scrounging to save every penny just to do...
The whole thing is comical.
Do people really see any of this as a good value?
Nvidia, AIBs and scalpers responded to supply and demand by jacking prices through the roof.
The bottom falls out after gamers were forced to sit out Ampere due to shortages whether manufactured or otherwise.
I love my 5600X.
It was purchased to replace a 3600X.
Given the bump in price at the time I purchased it from AMD Direct, it was overpriced at $299 plus tax and shipping ...so $321.
I can't complain too much though because it 'burrows' through everything I throw at it.
This is the result after...
All manufacturers...both Nvidia and AMD...are in for a rude awakening on pricing of current generation.
They seem to still want top dollar for almost two year old tech and are sticking to those numbers...despite unfavorable market conditions.
If people hold strong and not buy these products...
I am in the 'hold to see what happens' camp on GPUs.
With slightly lower demand this time out, there is a much better chance to score what you want...with patience.
Chances are, people won't be able to buy an Nvidia 4000 or AMD 7000 series within the first two months due to the 'new shine'...
This would make anybody spitting mad to the point of violence.
You buy a pc...it has an issue and so you send it to a company for repair, only to have it sold at auction to cover a repair facility's bankruptcy?
At the very least, the people should be able to submit their repair orders to...
Nvidia's Shadowplay recording in GeForce Experience is now broken more than not.
Every time you try to launch it, the infamous 0x00003 error pops up after the few successful initial uses at driver installation.
It is still one of the smoothest, best recording suites....when it works....but that...
I'm thinking that as well...given the specifications of the top-tier.
It is a rather vicious catch 22.
On the one hand... Intel knows they only get one opportunity at making a good impression and have to release these cards with the best performance to price ratio possible.
On the other hand...
Sounds like it is time to replace the 'leader' of the driver team with somebody more capable in pulling together talented software engineering.
Intel is a massive company with lots of revenue and resources.
Given the importance of this task (with regard to potential long-term revenue) major...
Question is: How would they know if a card has been used for mining...without some type of onboard usage tracking utility.
Humans are some of the most despicable animals on the planet.
To think somebody could unsuspectingly buy one of these cards and pay full price....thinking they got a new...
I just asked this exact question yesterday on the HP forums.
As luck would have it, the answer came back as better data cable with bigger breakout box offering better internals to suppress interference.
The other improvement come in the form of better face gasket and support.
I just ordered one...
Nice response there.
I'd think you should care given the astronomical prices for GPUs.
For the record...those are two Youtube channels dedicated to fixing broken electronics.
Lots of RTX cards...including quite a few 3080s and 3090s have been reviewed in the last few episodes I've watched.
Is anybody else concerned about the lack of warranty support on newer graphics cards?
I've been watching Krisfix and Northridge for a few weeks.
The number of high-end GPUs with rejected warranties is a bit of a concern.
There once was a time wherein you'd only expect to see this behavior from small, sketchy unknown shops.
Today, many large companies are engaging in this very shady behavior.
I fully expect if Crypto crashes, you'll see lots of video-cards re-packaged and sold as new.
When $300 over MSRP is seen as a 'great deal' for a low-level card by some... yet better than the $500 scalpers will ream those impatient people for.
A company's willingness to do what is right, is only as good as the people running it.
I could understand $75-100 over the MSRP...
Impatience was what drove the pricing.
Sure! miners and scalpers contributed but the overwhelming reason Nvidia, AMD and their Add-in-board partners and retailers command these prices is due to people's attitudes.
"I must have a card no matter what"
Some guys justified the purchase with all...
Where are you guys getting all this money you're 'throwing away'?
Who in their right mind spends this much for a videocard, the basis of which had an MSRP of $699?
People have let patience....or lack thereof cause them to lose their minds.
No RTX3080, Ti or otherwise is worth those prices.
The greed of US importers and to some extent...manufacturers, is at the heart of the trade imbalance.
For years, they were happy to fire US workers and ship their jobs abroad.
Those outsourced products would then be brought back to compete with...and in many cases outsell products made here.
Had guys not run out and pay these exorbitant prices for sh** cards, Nvidia and AMD would have been forced to keep increases smaller...even in this pandemic.
They now know what you are willing to pay to play.
You'll need a miracle to get the prices anywhere sane ever again.
They're like the OPEC...
