[Video] AMD did NOT disappoint me

  1. The prices in Sweden are so high that its going to kill AMD RX6800= 900$ ??
    and the RX 6800 XT costs even more!, that is in stores, so I think Nvidia cards have a biger chans to succed with ther sales. 🙁 Wold be nice if other GPU makers did do something about this, old school ( powervr redition matrox and others came back to deliver some new GPUS)

  2. I mean, you can't buy any GPUs at the moment anyway but I think the AMD 6xxx series would be more fairly compared to the RTX 2xxx series. As you said, last gen ray tracing. Plus, you've not got a 6900 XT to compare here.

    Having said that, there's no denying that AMD are still behind Nvidia on that basis. Maybe we'll gen a 6xxxx Gen 2 set of cards that are more 3xxx comparable.

  3. This video felt like about 13 minutes and 7 seconds of Linus dunking on the 6800XT… But I do have to say this. People in the comments are really acting like ray tracing is something people super care about. Well, spoiler alert, it's not really a feature that people super care about. The frame rate boost and DLSS are the main things that gamers care about, and while ray tracing is a completely nice thing to have, you can still game at a good graphical quality without it.*. My point is, *You don't need Ray Tracing to game, and you don't even need it to game at a good graphical setting. You only need it to game if you want your games to look like the realest games in the world. And most people would be completely fine if it didn't exist for personal gaming use for a little longer. That being said, RTX is still a completely nice feature that many people use, and if you want a feature and have the money, go ahead. AMD focused on the biggest thing, the frame rate improvement, which is more than enough reason to buy a 6800XT. DLSS needs to definitely implemented, and it should be able to handle ray tracing a lot better. But just saying that NVIDIA is better because of ray tracing only is not fair*. The 6800XT showed its power in the standard gaming department, it's something that I do thing NVIDIA should be scared of. That being said, I *do think the 3000 series are the better card. But for the price that the 6000 series is available at, and for the good standard gaming FPS boost, AMD is a viable option.

  4. I wonder if all game developer are in favor of Nvidia, seems AMD GPU update struggles those software issue in games, and may ended up toward industrial use (render farming, big data processing) and Industrial developer might favor AMD gpu. (comparing nvidia features that are flavors for streamer to AMD gpu with only rich in rendering and graphic processing)

  5. When it comes to SAM, it needs to be enabled at the software level for it to be used to capacity, and when it does, it probably won't affect FPS much still, but, it will reduce load times by quite a bit.

    *By at software level, I mean that games need to be coded to take advantage of the newly available bandwidth.

  6. they may not have disappointed you (due to they sent you cards to try out and probably keep) but they disappointed the world by having next to no stock and 0 protection against scalping bots!

  7. I think these MSRP comparisons are really only applicable in the US, provided you got one of the reference cards. In my country ( România) the 3070 starts at roughly 850 US dollars. I'm hoping I can get an rx 6800 tomorrow which is about 800 dollars here. Between the two, I like the 16gb vram on the RX 6800 and I don't care all that much about the other features.

  8. Had 3 video cards from amd and last one i bought is nvidia 1080, i got once dead on arival by amd and once died on me after 2 weeks, every single amd card died soon after warranty ran out eather few weeks after or 2,5 year old. Had no issues whatsoever from nvidia in 4-5 years now. I for sure am willing to pay 50dollar premium if that means double or triple the lifespan, also when i want to change grapich card i can get some money back for working card, not soo much for a dead one. Im not touching amd gpus

  9. Using DLSS is effective decreasing your game screen size then stretching it to fit the current resolution. Say you have a 1440p resolution it might render it in 1080p and scale it back to 1440p. You'll loose finer details doing so. So hell yes it is cheating. It isn't actually rendering in the resolution it is being compared in it is just up-scaling. I hope AMD never does an equivalent to DLSS because stupid. If you are going to use DLSS you might as well just set the resolution to the lower scaled image because apparently that is what will satisfy you anyways.

  10. Everyone complaining about stock levels are just impatient af. I went to the store, ordered a 3080 and waited 2 weeks to get it just chill tf out its not the end of the world.
