Yup. I am curious to see how a 6600XT and 6700XT vs a 3060 (Ti) would perform as upgrade options for my 2700X + B450 combo. Afaik the board does support SAM with the latest Bios.Agreed on that too, in the monthly QA's they even addressed these things, specifically say the Scheduler and CPU overhead as being an AMD talking point, so I'd have also expected them to touch on what AMD has that is a potential talking point or advantage too, especially given the lower end of the scale/price point this card occupies, people are less likely to have a super high-end system powering it compared to high-end cards.
The 3060Ti and 6700XT are my target class as I want to move to 1440p, however I do not know what the actual performance benefits would be.
I guess the same goes for the 3060 / 6600XT target group who are probably on lower end hardware. It would suck to upgrade to one of these just to discover that you end up with the same performance as a Polaris card due to limiting factors.
While this is mentioned as a caveat for the 6600XT (PCIe 3 bandwidth ) I do not recall the software scheduler being mentioned in the same way for the 3060 review, but of course I could have missed that.
