Undoubtedly only a few days prior to launch, so likely no sooner than Dec 6th.
HH had no info about it on the announcement day.
This is gameplay fps, not benchmark.
It's unplayable with rt on 4k.
Saw this and it needed to be shared
Why aren't newer GPUs shipping with HDMI-CEC? It's silly that I have to use a TV remote to wake my display connected to something "so advanced" when a $30 Pi, every STB, and even consoles with AMD GPUs can do it.
I'd love CEC on GPUs to be honest. And display port as well, not just hdmi.
Because theres no windows api for it, and afaik its never progress past proposed on linux.
So it's chicken and egg? How can an API be made for something that doesn't exist? Can't they just slap the same CEC tech that's used on other devices on the GPU and let the support work itself out later?
The Pulse Eight CEC adapter also claims support in Windows and Linux, so CEC has to work somehow: https://www.pulse-eight.com/p/104/usb-hdmi-cec-adapter
I mainly brought this up after hearing Steam Deck didn't support CEC, which seems incredibly silly. This just seems like something that should have been implemented years ago and a no-brainer solution for power-saving, and yet things like AV1 encoding are being prioritized.
Third party software, most likely.
The system suggested by bitwitkyle is already good as it is, however it is still possible to modify some parts to save enough for even Radeon RX 6900 XT GPU.
So, here’s a reminder that this card currently sells at $669 on Amazon. At this price, you can easily build a 6900XT system with Ryzen 5 5600X, 1GB DDR4-3600 memory and 700W power supply.
AMD Radeon RX 7900 launching next week
Multiple reports claim that AMD Radeon RX 7900 launch may face supply issues.
Igor’sLAB published an article about Radeon 7900 series based on information collected from multiple sources, including big board partners making Radeon GPUs.
It is said that 10,000 MBA (Made by AMD) graphics cards will be distributed within the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region.
The Germany alone is to receive 3000 units, which does seem sufficient for such an expensive GPU, but that would imply that only 7K cards will be available for the rest of the region.
Other sources of Igor claim that the launch is still affected by BIOS issues (memory leaks resulting in graphics card freezes) and also delays of deliveries.
It is reported that some custom cards will not see the light until at least January.
Meanwhile, Chinese media outlets have come forward to affirm that no MBA cards will be sold in the country. This is reportedly a result of a tense situation with Taiwan.
That said, only custom cards will be available at launch, which will almost certainly guarantee higher prices and lower supply.
Unfortunately for AMD, the Chinese GPU market is heavily saturated by NVIDIA GPUs, meaning the status of Radeon 7900 availability in China will almost certainly not improve it.
Let's Us hope this is only rumour if not it's really bad (ATI please come back to US)

I hope to get one on launch, though to be honest i'll get what i can as long as it's reasonably priced.
Tbh I might just order one and sell my current one for some euros. Thing is while 6800 XT is amazing, it's not quite there for 4K which is roughly what I game at.
