    MS Flight Sim 20-20 is a junk mess because instead they,M$$$,should build the game on Dx12 API they bring the game with Dx11 junkyard. [​IMG]
    Do Not try to test Fs2020 in this time,its useless Dx11 junkatry.

    Works great here.

    They are working on dx12, but I have time to wait when it's working just fine now.<<

    If you think it's running like junk, it must be the hardware that is junk. ;)

    PS: You don't need 100fps+ in this game...

    But at least 60+ minimum or ideally 90+ FPS steady would be nice in VR, at least. ;)

    It cost far more then $500 for a custom loop that is not china junk. I know because I just spent over $500 and thats without my pump/res setup. And if you are already an aio on your cpu and want a gpu like this, its pretty damn easy.

    I have the Sapp Nitro+ RX 6900 XT and it's a monstrous card, probably won't need a GPU upgrade for the next two years at least. Playing Gears of War 5 Hivebusters and Serious Sam 4 @ 3840x1080, max ingame setting and still net >100fps, pretty happy with the card actually.

    sorry, but you didn't read the review?
    spine exaggerating a bit, that's all.
    every amd or nvidia review is commented all day with this nonsense comments about...no it's faster, no it's not but all kind of fanboys without being finally objective. yeah in lower resolutions it's doing fine..but in higher resolution the lower memory bus and lower memory clock is slowing it down. and after telling you both that your next reply goes about -> no one really games 4k or higher resolution or is using raytracing and such things. that's not the point. as long as there are consumers (gamers and designers) out there using 4k or 8k resolutions it matters and should be reviewed. it's an overall review and not an 1080p review...it show's how that card performs at all and on the last page of the review...it's ranked below the 3090. so finally his statement is not totally wrong. but your statements in your comments are only a cherry pick of what matters for you (games and resolutions) or where it outperforms other cards. and no... i am not a fanboy, i switch between amd and nvidia in different setups. there is no perfect card at all, and never was...it's about what matters for you.
    e.g.: i wont use a 3090 or 6900 for my father banking stuff or an software developer machine. that's a workload fitted for a simple onboard graphic card.

    Yeah. I was lookin into building a custom loop and all the parts would costs me more than €1000 here. If I could ever find them in stock, that is. :(

    not really. it depends on what you're counting as part of your loop. $300 for top flight pump/res, $100 for a copper 360 rad, <100 for a waterblock.
    adding the gpu is another rad and another waterblock.
    if i wanted to count China-crap subtract 25%. everything i'm talking about is 1st world manufacture.

    If you're interested in water-cooled 6800s and 6900s, there are Liquid Devil versions on the way.

    Yeah it was. Almost 700€. I got me a reference 5700XT and an EKWB block for about 500€ combined. The Liquid Devil is much smaller in size though.
