So... was able to buy the 6800xt just now
No stock here...
OP Updated with new Benchmarks (YT).
I got one from sapphire 679
Good price, all-things-considered, and Sapphire is one of the better brands eh?
Sapphire is the Evga of amd.
Wow congratz !!
BTW --- for now it doesn't matter which brand..... these are all reference designs from AMD + stickers from the OEM. But I agree /// Sapphire is a good choice...
I got one 6800xt from PowerColor, also a 100% reference design + stickers.
Control with RT @1440p on a 6800xt will be a good experience no doubt (pretty sure you'll be good for 60fps) especially with SAM enabled.
Very nice gpus from AMD this time around , i like it , i like it a lot as it battles the rtx3080 for less money. Go go go AMD , cannot wait to see rx 6900x
6800xt +sam + dlss like alternative would be amazing. It could be playable even at 4k.
@ 1440p is like 32FPS vs 72FPS on 3080 no-DLSS -> Im going for 3080Ti 20GB in spring/summer (95% sure now about it )
No time for Hot head now, next will be CP 2077 (Heavy on RT).
I hate to agree with you on this OnnA, but I kind of do.
I just really don't want an Nvidia card now...
RT performance is rather disappointing indeed, then again, the XT seems to loose out against the 3080 in all pro-Nvidia games, and all current RT-games are pro-Nvidia by default.
But still: the numbers are less impressive than what I was expecting. At least the overclocking potential is better than the alternative, but I was kind of hoping the RT performance would have been better...
And a worse paper launch than the 3080, of which I really don't understand how that's even possible: in the Netherlands none of the major retailers had any stock at all, though I know a person working at the MSI distribution center in my town, and she claimed about a thousand units were sent to China. Scalpers raiding supply lines?
Ah well, maybe next week then.
You gotta understand this, AIBs don't have much incentive to sell AMD ref design for MSRP when they can sell their custom design for higher price.
Mhmm... here in Germany the situation was bad, but actually me and a few users in german forums were able to snag a few cards just before scalpers did...
And remember that I also wanted to buy an NVidia 3080 before so I knew how was the situation on the green side too.... bought it, then on the same day received info about a "store error" and never happened that I was able to even touch a 3080... fate wanted it that way.
Now my 6800xt is on the way, and also targeting the 6900xt next on 8.12.
3dmark firestrike world record for single graphics card has been broken on one of this amd rx 6800x at 2650/2000Mhz , Holy performance in benchmarks Batman lol !!!! beating rtx 3090 and rtx 3080.
And yet again not able to buy the cards. Scalpers and bots attack.....seriously sucks. They have to stop this from happening.
Sometimes I wonder if they are trying to block sales to some addresses.
Onna, first off thanks for all the Vega 64 info and support you have given BTW, I have followed your posts for a few years and used them on my Vega and appreciate it.. And now I want to do the same with this card lol, hence why I'm here lol
Has anyone found any 6800xt bios files yet? Need someone to dump one and check it out. Also does the 6800xt have the bios security chip with the psp security or whatever that the Vega had?
The 16gb would be nice to overclock if we could access the timings like we could in Vega, although that was hbm2. I think this card might take some time to develop tweaks and mods for though since the drivers are supposably mediocre..
BIOS dumps will start to appear.... I hope I will get my card on friday at the latest.... and the first thing I will do is to dump the BIOS and upload to TPU LoL.
And this card has an OC headroom as big as grand canyon I tell ya.... so mods will come for sure, but I think we would need to wait an additional week for the AIB release.
I had the same experience, I read a lot of Onna posts to get the most out of my vega. I even don't want to change it I like it so much... thinking about RDNA3...
