    Even with insensitive ears, the stuff would be pretty audible.

    I had a Sapphire 290X reference design which had quite bad coil whine (I paired it with a dual-fan MSI 290X which was completely silent in that regard), and a Sapphire HD6990 reference before that, which had it too (though not as bad).

    It's good to hear that the Vega and VII don't have the issue! Fingers crossed for the 6900XT :cool:

    I had the infamous GTX970 coil whine. It did it sometimes even when not gaming, during super bright scenes in videos and pictures. It changed pitch depending on brightness, it was not a consistent note or level. I RMA'd the card over it and the new one had coil whine too. (EVGA) Less, but still there.

    It's like a dog whistle that just barely crosses into our hearing spectrum. It was maddening!

    wrong on the first, possibly correct on the second.
    AMD is reaping the rewards of early investment and close relations with TSMC.

    as i've mentioned elsewhere AMD chips are produced more efficiently, at higher volumes, with higher yields than Nvidia can do, dramatically lowering costs.
    heatsinks and pcb's are cheap by comparison.

    another factor for some is the lower power draw that is native to smaller process nodes. that equals less heat and less of a need for 3 slot solutions (tho some will doubtless surface).

    I'll be skipping this gen. You'll notice from that list that I don't care for minor 30-50% upgrades.

    Like I told you, baby.
    All or nothing with me.

    Let see how 6900XT will perform against 3080 hopefully close enough.
    I was seriously considering this time to go nVidia if 6900XT will not perform well, but after I saw the issue and power consumption of 3080 I will either stick to my Radeon VII or go for 6900XT.

    Except for few laptops over the years with nVidia GPU and son's computer with GTX 1070, here is my computer GPU history. :rolleyes:

    HD4870, HD 5870, HD 6970, HD 7970, R9 290X, R9 Fury X, Vega 64, Radeon V

    I was all about AMD GPUs until i got an R9 390 and it would overheat like mad, had to do an RMA on it and they gave me a GTX 1070 which i still use today and its been great! lol

    I've had coil whine with every card I've ever had, with the possible exceptions of:
    - S3 Savage 2000 because I don't remember if it did or not.
    - Radeon All-in-Wonder X800 XT because I don't remember if it did or not.

    Never had an nVidia card that didn't coil whine like a bitch, even among the same generation from different brands. My first one was a GeForce 4 Ti 4200. I had 970s from Gigabyte and MSI, all of them whined like they were Twatter users.

    Well as I mentioned some posts before, the coolers on reference AMD cards are horrible in the last generations. :eek:
    I had since few generations always water cooled my AMD cards with a small under volt.
    With Vega 64 and Radeon VII, I got better performance with under volt and water cooler than with refence cooler.
    The Radeon VII was down clocking all time with original cooler. :mad:
    With water cooler the clock is much more stable and the card does not heat up like hell. :oops:
    Maximum temperature are around 42°C.

    Let's hope that this time around 6900XT would have a better cooling solution.

    Yeah I've never had coil whine with one of my cards either.

    Several Dell laptops on the otherhand..

    I had PSU coil whine , it was terrible ( seriously was impossible to use PC) , i had it returned and swaped for BeQuiet PSU , working for 10 years not without single noise or problem . I can truly recommend that brand .
