    Gears 5 rtx 3080 76fps vs 73fps rx6000
    Borderlands 3 rtx 3080 69fps vs 61fps rx6000

    We dont know if 6900xt is used or 6800xt. You can clearly see it says rx6000 for a reason.

    Zen 3 is really impressive, the uplift isn't that great vs 10900K in gaming so far but they tie and beat it so AMD can claim ST performance crown for the time being.

    Though we need to see how the 5600X performs, it should be the R5 3600 value all over again and even better.

    I was waiting for 5950X and gonna get it!!!

    5600X is 20% more expensive than 3600X
    5800X is 36% more expensive than 3700X
    5900X is 10% more expensive than 3900X

    We still yet to see proves of 19% IPC uplift, but if so, in mainstream they did what Nvidia did with Turing - keeping same performance per cost.

    If the price is right, I would take a 15% slower card for 20%? lower cost, 30%? lower power consumption and 60%!! more memory, ANY DAY of the year.

    Agreed, if it was their top end, which is what I guessing they would use to show performance, it is a little behind. But to your point, if it was a lower tier card and only 10% slower than 3080, then it would be nice. Can't wait for 28th Oct.

    EDIT: Looking back at it, she clearly says that this is the most powerful GPU AMD has ever built. Given that statement from Dr. Lisa Su, I think it is pretty safe at this time to assume that this was the top Big Navi, around 10% slower than 3080.

    Hopefully they are able to optimize a bit more before launch.

    They probably took the best one. If the price is right could be a good option in canada.

    They went nuts with the pricing. $300 for a six core on par with Intel? No one is impressed.

    5800x too expensive imo, at almost 100 quid more than a 10700K. 5900x is ok. I will get 5900x.

    They know 8core will be one to get this gen so it has a highest increase in price. Even though zen3 looks amazing thats the chip i was going for so i dont like that.

    Yup a little too pricey for my taste (5800 and 5600). I think they are making a mistake gonna kill the momentum a bit. I'll wait next year when Intel will release their new cpus the price will drop ;)

    I'll have to wait and see how the UK prices translate but in terms of performance it's about what was expected but at slightly lower clocks, that 5950x is going to be a beast for streamers and content makers who don't want the cost of a threadripper system.

    If that GPU used was the medium one though its looking slightly ahead of the 3070 which would be huge for price wars for the masses

    Its a huge mistake. I get TSMC is backed up with orders on top of two console launches this year that both use 7nm, but if anything they should have paper launched Zen3 rather than price it ABOVE Intel.

    I don't think so but I know that's not going to stop people from speculating.

    Either way I'm buying a 5900x

    Was anything mentioned about memory speed? I could have missed it.

    don't confuse current price with day-1 price of the 3000 and 2000 series. They are almost the same.

    I mean if it’s between a 3070 and 3080 in performance while having a compelling price what isn’t there to love.

    Gotta be impressed with lower bandwidth memory still keeping it kinda close? I would think it is their top end XT model that was shown, but rumor is that there will be another XTX model that only AMD will release which will have more CUs, so that one still might take the performance crown.

    Memory will be important, for sure.
    Tuned memory could easily add another 5% over the already (slightly) winning over 10900K.

    Do some PBO and TDP pushing, that could be yet another 5%.
    Intel would need to overclock to 5.6 Ghz to catch up, which is basically impossible without Sub-zero cooling.
