    Cyberpunk is Available - Lets share how your GPU/CPU is performing

    2070 Super at 2560x1080 on 3800x @ 4.4Ghz with DLSS on quality and set all high preset for the regular stuff and RTX at ultra 50-70 fps in city (started as corporate). Super gorgeous and am happy I can play it above movie FPS. I cannot wait until work shift is done T_T !

    Looks like AMD fixed PBO 5800X boost set up to 5050 Mhz with AMD Curve Optimizer

    It is what happens when wannabes don't know how to cool a CPU right...a $40 cooler keeping it at 79.8 C...damn! That is nice! The people complaining must be really noob. I'm noob, but only in overclocking...cooling wise...tops.

    AMD is driving me crazy! Competitive gaming Nvidia Freestyle rant

    So, what all this means, with all the things being said, those who compete with nVidia cards that can use the filters have, truly, an unfair advantage compared to anyone that uses the RX 570 series (highly popular for the 1080P crowd of comp players!) since there are not the same filter options...

    Help with OC 3800x MSI B350 Tomahawk

    In RE to the post above that I just made, My issue is understanding of the different settings in the bios and how to make things work better for my OCs. Since all board manufacturers are not the same, I was hoping someone would have the same board and bios, as that beta is different in how it...

    Help with OC 3800x MSI B350 Tomahawk

    Zarathustra[H] That is the BIOS I used and it has been very stable. I have not had issues OCing with it, although I am really a newb to OCing and it reports the correct CPU etc. I would say go with it if you have that model mobo. Before my 3800x, I was running my 1600 non x using the bios that...

    Who are you in GPU? Please. Thank you!

    I chose |H|are gaming because rabbits run fast. It runs faster than any GPU and it covers a large distance. It has really low power consumption, tends to keep a low profile and has realistic hair physics. If it runs hot, you can pour water on it and use soap w/o causing it to break, unless you...

    AMD is driving me crazy! Competitive gaming Nvidia Freestyle rant

    I will say the filters thing is cool, but, it is basically a cheat. When you are not supposed to see someone, then you should not see them. Wonder when real gamers will try to game w/o cheats or graphical things to gain an upper hand? Like, how it used to be....OI I'm old... One thing I like...

    Radeon 6000 series: Disappointing Pricing??

    Well, considering current nVidia card quantity is null and only scalpers are left, these prices are fantastic, provided the same thing doesn't happen to them. I am going to save and get either the 6800XT or 6900XT. I should have enough for the 6800XT on release day and it may work out that it...

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

    o.O I am simply blown away. The performance they showed is a breath of fresh air. I have had ATi/AMD cards for a long time. Only this last year did I do a switch or nVidia after my aging RX 480 was starting to push daisies and the new AMD offerings were not worth the price. I currently have an...

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    Yes, new tech takes a while to become more mainstream and, what you may already realize, as I do, being RT is on both consoles, this takes it to mainstream much faster. If a console player has a desire to play a PC game that is not on consoles with RT, he/she will opt for what they're more...

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    I believe that AMD will have great RT performance. While we have no true proof, except a snippet of BL3 during the Lisa reveal, we do have PS5 and Xbox Series X release footage of the games with RT on and they look way above 60 fps. Supposedly that is at 4k as well. Since those are consoles, I...

    Help with OC 3800x MSI B350 Tomahawk

    Greetings! I have already messed with some OCs on my 3800x with the B350 Tomahawk, however, I am wondering if there are any other users of the same board sporting the same CPU that can help me optimize for more stable clocks. I have had it at 4.525 (IIRC) stable and ran some tests in which it...

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    Yes, the more shares thing, true, however it takes nearly 2 shares of Intel to make 1 share of AMD. Yes Intel has more volume and that is because of years of AMD not having anything to really bring to the table. Now that the Zen thing has really taken off, the table will be filling up. I wish...

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    Just an FYI...never thought I would have ever seen AMD past $20 a share, but, as of this typing they hand Intel its own ass with $86.46 to Intel's $53.24. Hadn't paid attention to stocks since early 2000's and just tried RN to see what they were at. o.O That is a big shift from what I had seen...

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    So, this '5Ghz' thing is really a meme by now. The reason Intel is at 5Ghz is because their prime architecture hasn't changed in many generations and they are just pushing the dead horse 14++++ nm to that Ghz just to stay on top. Well, the horse wants to die. Amd shows that it can be done...

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    Well, after watching the presentation, I think it may be time to wait. Yep, that is it. The 5000 series is last for the AM4 boards and my 3800x smokes games well and multi-thread workloads well enough that an upgrade for it, is not quite needed. I will see when I run Cyberpunk 2077 to see what...

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Here's the dealeo, Nvidia will keep making great cards, however, all it takes is a bit of oversight and arrogance to change that. Sure, Nvidia's current offerings looks awesome, aside the scalping and other issues (nothing new there), however, AMD has an extra month of testing and making things...

    5700xt finally as fast as the 2070 super

    I would have gone for the 5700XT but the usual bad drivers and issues meant spending more time getting it to work rather than just enjoying it. I got the 2070 Super and it just works. Only 2 games take it to the ground RN, Space Engineers during large battles and Dual Universe at the main start...

    So much for NVIDIA claiming 10 gigs of vram would not be a limitation

    Meh. my 2070 Super will run everything I need it to run and will run Cyberpunk 2077 (if not I will cry). Playing Dual Universe 2k high and get a playable 30-40 fps in the large areas filled with ships and then 90-150 fps anywhere else. Can't complain.

    The great video card dump of 2020 has begun!!!

    The 2070 Super I bought in May, if 2080ti's are going down to that $500 +/- $100 mark, means I might be able to pick up another 2070 Super on the cheap! I am excited! Means I can get good performance on the cheap for some of my other franken builds! Thanks nvidia!

    PSA: Measure Twice - Order Once

    Well, maybe a return of the old HAF cases will work for this...good thing mine is the HAF 932 Advanced :) Would fit in there with the drive cages :P I would have to redo my water loop though as the reservoir fits pointed up snug against the rear of my 2070 super...maybe a side mounted res or...

    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    When Intel finally gets to 5nm, AMD will have gone to theoretical minimum. This means it is time to ditch the old codgers (intel). They will 14+++ to infinity! If they are smart, they will use TSMC facilities as their own seems to really be lacking. Also, with the hacked 20Gb document file, I am...

    Computer emergency, help requested

    Yeah, had a couple bent pins on my 3800x when it came in the mail (anyone notice AMD CPUs don't have the protection foam thing under the CPU pins inside the plastic case in the CPU box? My old FX CPU had one). I fixed it with a credit card and an ultra thin flat head screw driver. I had no mag...

    2080 Super's Raytracing feature does not seem to work in Modern Warfare. Any suggestions?

    That is a very small clock to be having issues. I have a similar setup (Same CPU and an RTX card 2070 Super) and had never experienced crashing in that game, but, I will try it with RTX on to see if I experience the same issue. My 2070 Super is 1113Mhz vram and 112Mhz gpu. Being yours is a 2080...

    GPU - diminishing returns reached

    So...I purchased a 2070 Super after having my RX 480 for many years; games needed more. I game at an ultra wide 2k (non 144) and my rx 480 was dipping as games demanded more. It was noticeable in the game Squad on some of the larger maps filled with trees. I did not want to view the game in a...

    What is a Ventus card?

    I have the MSI RTX 2070 Super Ventus OC. It is a really nice card. I have it in a very well ventilated HAF 932 Advanced case and running +112 on the core and +1113 on the memory, it runs top 60c under full load. Great overclocker and great card. It was not too expensive and not a giant thing so...

    What cpu to get? 3600, 3800 or 3900.. cooling is not an issue..

    Get either a 3700x or a 3800x (better lottery silicon) as those would be awesome! Also, get a larger case for better flow...looking kind of cramped in that pic of the current setup. (OP)

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    What I cannot understand is why the hell would anyone accept anything above 65c for their CPU temps? It is so weird to see so many, both Intel and AMD users reporting being fine with anything above 65c. My 3800x (recent upgrade in MSI Tomahawk b350) is cooled on a 120m rad Corsair H60. Max temp...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    Think my favorite card from recent memory is my RX 480 8Gb version from Gigabyte. Recently I upgraded to an RTX 2070 Super as I was thinking that new games that are coming out (Cyberpunk 2077) might start to slow this puppy down. It is still cranking the FPS hard in 1080p on my old FX 6300 rig...
