Interesting test. Looks like the Intel / Nvidia combo is still ahead (as everyone expects) but AMD is not too far behind.
Intel is stuck at 14nm, it is in big trouble.Can’t wait to see 7nm Ryzen. Intel might be in some trouble. AMD won in Fortnite but the 1% low was interesting in games like RE2.... all three cards hovered around 60FPS almost which happens to be the same as a vsync lock. Weird.
I don't know why people talk about the fan noise, it is a very quiet card on the auto fan setting.
The RTX 2080 is better overall, but I still think Radeon VII is a good buy and it is competitive.
Radeon VII seems to overclock better, so you can probably close the gap with tweaking.
Or if you need AMD specific features (e.g. FreeSync over HDMI for Samsung TVs).
I don't think they are, to be honest. All of the VIIs so far have been completely reference models, and I haven't heard any news to suggest that AIB partners are planning their own versions with different cooling solutions. Whether this is down to the reputed limited number of cards in the channel, I don't know.LOL! Is it that bad? When are they coming out with different coolers?
No flipping way, I had one, it ramped up fast and could be heard through my headphones (which are open back).
I have all Noctua fans running around 900 RPM, my system is barely audible and the VII sounded like a rackmount server compared to everything else.
This article wasn't a CPU or GPU benchmark. The point was to show how different platforms perform differently, given 2 popular configurations.
