I should update my signature but I have the ASUS TUF 6700 XT which isn't loud but with Radeon Chill capping the framerate it is very quiet. I don't have the optional drivers yet and better DX11 or SAM with an AMD processor.
The latest official release driver has the multi-threaded driver improvements from the previous optional driver.

SAM (resizeable bar) works on Intel, as well. I have it active on my 12700k system. In the bios, You have to activate "above 4G decoding", before you can see the option for resizeable bar.

While I bought the XFX swft 6700xt mainly as a display out for a media computer that I rarely game on my ears have been plugged from allergies and it’s been warm out so I’ve been keeping the heat generation down in the living room. I’ve been Skipping out on gaming on my headset 6900xt rig and been gaming on my 6700xt in the living room.

Honestly the more I’ve tried it with it’s really its really pretty solid. Its largely somewhere similar to the 2080ti, 3070 and 6800m. I suspect you can get a fair price on a more generic looking card like the Swft. Honestly aside from lighting and not as smooth as lines in aesthetics XFX’s cooling solution is really good. I’d see no inherent reason to avoid a good deal just plan accordingly even in the wake of the eventual new cards.

I've been playing with a Red Devil 6700xt for a few weeks now. The price was too good to pass. It's a substantial upgrade to my 980ti - especially at 1440. It's arguable right now is not the best time to buy a GPU if you don't need, with rumored price slashing bloodbath of pricing in the next few months - some of which we are seeing today with both AMD and Nvidia.

Having said that I have no regrets.

There is the powercolor hellhound for 429 on Amazon. It's sitting in my cart. I am debating how long I want to wait. My 1060 6gb is well past it's prime so it's time

Do it, you won't regret it. Also, that is a phenomenal price. I paid more than double that back in January for my 6700XT. Hell, the one I bought in January is currently $479. I feel like schmuck...

Well the 6700XT is in route. Amazon had the PC Red Devil for 449$. I am debating to grab a 5600X to replace my 3600X or just swing for the fence and grab the 5800X 3D

If you're gonna upgrade, go big or don't do it. 🤪

That's what I did back in January when I got my 6700 XT. I also got a 5900X. Those replaced 5700 XT and a 3900X.

I think I am gonna jump to the 5600x considering I can sell the 3600 and offset most of the cost :) I think the 6700XT with a 5600x will be a good 1-2 punch. Then grab the 5800X 3D when its cheaper cause I am not upgrading to AM5 and DDR5 for at least 1 year :)

Looking like the near perfect combo

The 6750XT just dropped to $480 today: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09ZHZZ6YH
This is the i just grabbed from Best Buy , same pricing. She's a huge one compared to my 6600xt. This with the 5800x, I believe I'm set through the entire AM5 generation.





🤣
Uh huh...yeah, right
F***, I didn't even know about that 6750xt, when did it come out? What is special about it compared to rx 6700xt, just a bigger clock and better binned chips or am I missing something?
Really, really good price, at my place is about 670 usd and more.:asad:

6750xt just boosts clock speeds. All other specs are the same. I rather have a premium 6700xt vs basic 6750xt

They know how to charge for an ordinary overclock,horror.I would definitely buy an amd gpu (probably rx 6600xt) if they didn't screw up with pcie bandwidth and screw people who have PCIE 3.0 but don't have pcie 4.0... this is how you should buy a new motherboard, processor, etc., fuck them.
This is how nvidia earned billions from cryptocurrency miners and gamers and amd with its gpu almost nothing, here and there a few enthusiasts bought amd gpu cards, instead of lowering prices and offering amd graphics for the poor.

I generally don't understand? On my B450 ITX and 5600 I get x16 PCI-E Speed using Gen 3 vs Gen 4..... I have rebar for the caching so I am not sure what your beef is? The preformance difference between x16 ver 3 and ver 4 is almost none on this level of a card.

Last I heard the pcie3/4 stuff only really mattered on the gimped 6500xt with 4 lanes.

Yes, another reason why I went for nvidia rtx 3060 12gb and not rx 6600xt, amd rx 6600xt or any of the 6000 series does not support smart access with ryzen 2700x processor and nvidia supports rBar with this 2700x.
It's really illogical and stupid, but it's true.
Everyone went crazy for their processors, but they screwed up with the graphics.
I hope it will be fixed with the new generation or nvidia will take everything from them again.
