    Thanks for all these reviews lately! I
    actually sold my RTX 2080 Ti right before the launch of Navi and RTX Super. Bought it on launch for 1300$ and sold it now for 1000$.

    Those dollars just got me an 3800x, 32GB 3200Mhz, ASUS ROG Strix X570-E and an Corsair H115i Pro AIO.

    Now I just need a new GPU, and I really like what AMD is doing here. Just have to wait for all the reviews of the AIBs for both RTX 2070 Super and RX 5700 XT before I decide. Would be nice with a full AMD rig.

    The RTX 2070 Super and RX 5700 XT The DX12: 3DMark Time Spy shows quite a big gap, considering they are quite equal I not understand , can someone explain

    The way TimeSpy uses the DX12 API favors Nvida. Nothing more to it.

    That's like 10 times better and more accurate than sharpening done by my gaming monitor. It feels like bit of overkill when comparing those 2 images.
    But here comes real test:
    1080p screen with RIS ON vs 1440p with RIS OFF. Screen next to each other. And see if added details would actually be present on 1440p or even 4K.
    Because while those details look like they came from almost nowhere, they came from something...

    Is that like 32x AF? or 64x AF? Or high precision downsampling? Either way, I see great potential.

    Its a night and day difference. It looks like it adds even more detail not only sharpen. Cant wait to see more comparisons.

    Wow massive improvement. Between this and gaming lag reduction, amd might have a mega gpu on their hands - and this is only mid tier!

    Impressive, I wonder how much fps hit it will take on RX580 :)

    It's only available on the 5000 series for whatever reason.

    Maybe its heavy on the framerate but then again Vega should be capable. 5700 series needs a selling feature so who knows...

    AMD is clearly changing something in TMUs to achieve this. And it may require more/change cache too to minimize performance impact. (As they stated it costs 1~2% only on 5700.)

    So you excuse a feature lock when it comes to AMD but don't let go when it comes to Nvidia. Good to know.

    Nvidia's Freestyle does sharpening - how it differs from this idk. Some videos/pictures I've seen I like it, others I don't but honestly that's similar to RIS for me. The Strange Brigade screenshot posted here looks great but the face example they use on the RIS feature website looks like crap in my opinion. Also LTT video they talked about it in various games looking way too overdone and not liking it. In the past using Reshade and Freestyle, big landscape textures I always liked it on but smaller objects, human faces, etc I always feel like it doesn't do a good job, just makes it look fake/cartoon or something, I can't really explain it.

    I'm the guy that sets my TV's sharpness to 0 so maybe I'm just weird lol

    You are right, performance impact is minimal using 5700. I would very much like to see polaris and vega support.

    Also i like how its not developer dependant but a simple toggle. Better than a waiting for year and have it only in a four games, right? :D
