    Looks like a 6800XT could easily drive a 1440p screen with ray tracing (just imagining it landing above 60fps). Nice.

    right in line with 2080 Ti DXR performance, man these AMD leaks were so accurate, even when they were many months ago.
    Probably for the same reason Nvidia delayed driver distribution to AIBs to contain leaks.

    I think those results show very good raytracing performance, well done AMD. :)

    Disappointing RT perf, ~30% slower than Ampere, which really just scrapes by at 1440p. No point buying a next gen card that is bad at next gen.

    Dont care for ray tracing at all , and 1440p is max what i need for current (or someone call it next) gen , in 3-4 years i will think about 4k again.

    I think AMD decided to leak stuff on purpose as soon as they knew Nvidia performance wasn't ahead of them which would explain why lots were accurate compared to usual

    Yep, I game at the odd 3840x1080 res, I believe it's less stressful than 1440P, so I should be good with a 6800XT.....only snag is, AVAILABILITY!

    6800XT having 67fps at 1440p in Metro, knowing that it has no DLSS, is not exactly bad.

    Your resolution has 12.5% more pixels than 2560x1440. Some games use vertical resolution for certain buffer presets, so it may be bit lighter. Most use just 1:1 or 1:2 scaling for actual screen resolution.

    You can't define this as disappointing really.
    Ampere is faster, as it always have been, but the performance for all the rest is there.
    Who has a 1440p screens can just be a normal good 60hz and so aims at 60fps.

    Also i wonder if reducing the details from ultra, removing the unnecessary eyecandy that is hardly visible, if you can squeeze some extra fps.

    Oh crap, I'm a 32:9 and 21:9 screen ratio user, when I see 1440P, I'd immediately think of 3440x1440, hence my misguided assertion that 1440P has more pixels than my 3840x1080 res. I had totally forgotten about 2560x1440....

    I think that 21:9 is better than 16:9. Both for movies and gaming experience. But there are few such screens and do not exactly bring big benefits to productivity.
    Strange, I did not think it would be matter of opinion. More like multiplication and division.

    3080 score 98 FPS average without DLSS. What's the point in buying next gen if it doesn't do next gen well?

    Yes I can. It's why so many Pascal owners skipped Turing.

    3840*1080 is more demanding than 1440p.

    Anyway, when are the reviews going live for these?

    Wait for next-gen Games on the newer consoles,because they include newer Rdan2 tech.There will be no Bloatware in games from other tech company. :)
    Ofc from 2021-2022.

    1.11 times the pixel witch i would say is not a big difference . To a point i am confident you can expect if one card works great for one of the two resolutions it will work well with the other too.

    What does it mean doing it well?
    So with this logic the new consoles aren't next-gen either because they are not using ultra details?
    Who are you to say that 70fps isn't doing next gen well?
    Where is written that next-gen is raytraced 4k at 100+ fps?
    Those are ideas you made on your own following marketing hype and unrealistic expectations.

    Those cards seems definitely a different generation compared to the existing one. More powerful, by a bunch, compared to the previous one, for same power used.
    That is enough to say nextgen.

    The fact that game industry makes games that exceed hardware power available for the year of publishing, do not make the hardware less fast or less good.
    It just makes some gamers expectations unmet.

    Pascal/Turing is another point. Price doubled all of a sudden for a 30% gain, and no software to use raytracing available.
    That is why many people didn't upgrade.

    Also upgrading every gen is silly on its own, and should not make statistics on how good a card is if people skip upgrading from the previous gen.

    What's the point in throwing random number without source?
    Beacuse number you thrown is much closer to 3080 without use of DXR and DLSS, than it is to use of DXR.

    And ppl skipped Turing, because it did not have exactly improved performance per $.
