*activates tin-foil hat modeIt is getting to the stage where buying a pre-built from Dell or HP is the only way to get hold of a new GPU (not including scalpers at the usual places).
We are through the looking glass people..... (probably not as Dell have the ugliest versions of GPUs in their machines) .*activates tin-foil hat mode
Maybe all of the scalpers are actually system builders, forcing everyone to buy whole new PCs to arrest the steady decline in unit sales
I‘d say considering the current market, if you need a GPU and can get one at or near MSRP go for it. 3060 (the briefly available models) went for more than that.If they are available and at close to MSRP then they will fly off the shelves (especially in the UK as GPUs are scarce to non-existent) . It is getting to the stage where buying a pre-built from Dell or HP is the only way to get hold of a new GPU (not including scalpers at the usual places).
Please refresh my memory as to how many games are currently out THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY PLAYING that have these features?
Funny how the drones continue to fall for the marketing hype.
The real disappointing card (I personally dislike terms like „trash“ but you do you) is the 3060 you mention, but I assume you wanted to say 3060Ti.Trash card. Slower than RTX 3070, barely faster than RTX 3060. Has worse cost per frame than both
Also, much slower in RT and lacks DLSS
I agree that this review is way too negative. If the RTX 3070 gets a 95, how does this get a 70...?Roughly 2080Ti level of rasterizstion performance for far less money isn’t “disappointing” at all. Also, a 30 percent improvement over the 5700XT is quite good, especially while consuming a good deal less power.
Perhaps the price isn’t perfect, I’ll give you that, but I feel this review is a bit too negative in my opinion. Kudos to AMD for innovating.
Perhaps the reason why prices on prior AMD generations were lower is because AMD needed to compete on price since it didn’t have the performance, and so it took a hit to gross margins. Now they’ve innovated, and want to charge a premium for their efforts, and we’ll see if the market place rewards (or punishes) them for their efforts.
better frame per watt, radeon boost is the current feature that compare to dlss. ray tracing is POS for most gamer. Price will settle after releasing. what everyone will hate even more is that eth mining will be far better than every RTX 3xxx card.Trash card. Slower than RTX 3070, barely faster than RTX 3060 Ti. Has worse cost per frame than both,
Also, much slower in RT and lacks DLSS
The mind wonders, did we lose Steve to the same "thing" that consumed LTT?I agree that this review is way too negative. If the RTX 3070 gets a 95, how does this get a 70...?
It's quite obvious that AMD likely increased the MSRP so they get a higher piece of the pie in the current market. nVidia on the other hand was setting artificially low MSRP prices from the beginning, but they are praised for it in reviews, despite being unable to get them at those prices. Unfortunately, the price has been the major focus for the conclusion, despite prices being pretty much irrelevant right now.
I can sympathize with the position of reviewers... Because what else are you gonna judge the card on...? But the discrepancy between a 95 score for the RTX 3070 and a 70 score for the 6700XT simply seems way too large, considering the results we are seeing.
Roughly 2080Ti level of rasterizstion performance for far less money isn’t “disappointing” at all. Also, a 30 percent improvement over the 5700XT is quite good, especially while consuming a good deal less power.
Murders ???I'm loving that 6900XT and 6800 XT murders the 3090 and 3080 in 1440p.
Yes "murders" is the word nvidia fanboys use when nvidia card is 1-2 frames faster than AMD.Murders ???
6800XT is only like 2% faster than 3080 at 1440p according to average graph. This called murder ??? LOL
Not sure how 2% difference is worth more than worse RT performance and lack of DLSS
