    Yes it does. Death Stranding for example, looks sharper with DLSS 2.0 enabled most of the time.

    Why do people WITHOUT DLSS 2.0 experience always claim otherwise? LOL!

    I have DLSS 2.0 and I'm claiming otherwise. In still pictures it's good, great even - in motion Death Stranding has a lot of weird issues going on with DLSS, moire effect in various places, smearing in wires/particles, etc - particularly with the water in the game. So yeah, still disagree.

    dlss has a lot less flickering in motion than native/taa in games that tend to produce it.a lot.
    I've seen it miss a texture here and there or produce some slight motion artifacting,but so does taa and to a bigger degree.

    watch it thoroughly.it's amazing how it gets rid of flickering where native/taa frankly look like an absolute mess



    I don't think I'm out of the loop since I've never seen a single card use them

    Are you seriously using one example of one part of the game that the developer of the tecnology showed?
    DLSS indeed does wonders on the performance x image quality, but not miracles.

    Then GDDR6X did not exist till nVidia released Ampere, right? Chips exist for years. No demand, no product.

    @Sovsefanden Gyrl, are you taking your testosterone pills? Like such posts? No? Then don't call people around bois. Keep gender slurs out.

    On paper yes. But people would trash AMD if they did not have a 6900XT. 99% of the market doesn't buy halo products but still care about who is the best. It's not rare to see someone buying a worse mid range product simply because the company making it has the best high end product on the market. It's stupid but it has been this way for a while.

    6900XT is the easily fastest at 1080/1440p only in 4k being beaten by 3090. I think amd will have excellent lineup with 6700xt in january just damn it make more of them!

    And I thought the difference between 3080 and 3090 was small, with AMD it's even smaller in 6800XT to 6900XT. Still a great card of course, but yeah, I'm a little bit disappointed.

    So the RTX3080 is still easily the best bang for the buck.

    Huh? No it's not. The 3060 Ti is.

    I can see a refresh of these cards with faster memory next year - it's so easy to tell that these cards are bandwidth starved...

    This card is lightning fast at lower resolutions, but like the 6800xt it doesn't scale so well at higher resolutions where the Infinity cache becomes less as effective.

    Even if it meant AMD had to make the card even more overpriced than it already is, they should have definitely upgraded the memory on the 6900xt to either GDDR6X or HBM2 to give it the bandwidth it needed to sweep the board at all resolutions.

    how is there no demand for 18gbps ddr6 ?
    literally 3 out of 4 comments here say 6800xt and 6900xt lack bandwidth

    If they did either GDDR6X or HBM2, not only would the cost go up but availability would be even worse than it is now. Considering how much VRAM it has, I'm sure they could've got away with a wider bus.

    Sure, it you don't give a damn about RT and 4K.
    I should have specified that.

    yeah on avg. I've seen it maybe like 2% faster than 3080 on some sites but others it's the other way around.Tbh if you focus on games they go about 50/50,you can make either card a few percent faster depending on your selection of games.
    at 1080p/1440p I dunno maybe you calculated averages and 6900xt pulls far ahead on g3d,I haven't,but frankly other sites have it going back and forth with 3080 at lower resolutions

    overall,across 20 games in 4 resolutions (fhd,1440p,3440x1440,4K) this is where current and last gen cards stand for traditional raster perfrormance.

    This is by no means worth $1,000. The 6900 XT only offered 8CUs more than the 6800 XT and that is it. There are no other features, benefits, nor vram you will get out of the 6900 XT other than 8CUs!!!

    At best this is a $700 card. AMD has lost their minds charging this much for it. There are no marketing points to reference to even suggest why someone should pay $400 + for an additional 8 cu's.

    RTX 3060 12gb will kill RX 6700 series, RTX 3060 6gb will obliterate RX 6600 and RTX 3050 laughs hysterically at RX 6500.
    Hell, even 6800 series will lose both watt/performance/price ratio soon by then, already 3060 ti has the best overall gpu for 2020 entitlement.
    AMD fans should&must be wise, waiting for RDNA2 refresh/RDNA3. 6900XT is a worse offering than 3090. At least 3090 offers true 4k performance and real RT.
