Apparently 6950xt will be releasing next week at msrp $1199.

Preliminary reports show it is faster than 3090ti. Anyone else have heard this?
In one leaked time spy (outdated) 3dmark test yes.

Any 3dmark gpu score is usually best compared against the same architecture for gains, not other gens or vendors.

By release, do they mean another paper launch?
From what I have heard they will be available on Newegg Tuesday for purchase. I am still leaning on getting 3080ti due to DLSS and RT (I know the new cards might be ready by Q4 but I am not going to wait). For what little gaming I do I probably wouldn’t notice a big difference between the 2.

Looks like some leak reviews shows that it is slower than a 3090ti and trades blows with a 3080ti. Tuesday the NDA gets lifted and we should start seeing some reviews.

Reviews are out.


About 10%~ faster then 6900xt. It is the same silicon that has been binned.

Question is do I care enough about ray tracing to justify picking up the 3080ti which cost $200 more and is slower than the 6950xt.

Idk. Depends on how many games actually have it. Then it depends on how many games actually make good use of it.

Still seems gimmicky and more of a "because I can" sort of thing.

Looking at GN review, something is odd about the 3070FE unless it's really capped at 225watts, My Zetac 3070 AMP Holo is 249watts when in full 3D mode at stock cap, so what's up with that review unless the driver is doing it.

I'm pretty sure 220 is the actual default. So unless you increase the power limit... that's exactly what the fe should get.

^^ that, youre comparing two different models. your card is also supposed to be 240w stock, so you have an oc or something boosting yours.

Happy this thing is out in the wild, but can't muster much enthusiasm given how close we are to the Navi 31 launch.

I think we are into November before mass shipping IMO. And prices due to shortages/war/crypto/covid-22 could all come into play.

Fair enough. I'd say at least wait till launch to see if Navi 31 pushes down prices on 6XXX series cards, but yeah those external factors may turn this into another 6XXX paper launch.

I believe Nvidia stepped up the Gen 2 / 3070 with the LHR cards in power draw as really what you're seeing, because 240watts is not overclocked on my card, it has settings for overclocking it in the FireStorm software.

I was only pointing out that if you're going show Gen 2 Navi / then show Gen 2 AMP for Apples to Apples

Different 3070 models have different power limits, that is not a gen1 or gen2 thing. if you are talking about refresh, look at the 3070ti instead.
