    Any review of the ASUS / Noctua 3070? I'm super interested in trying to get one of those.

    This is my card (The Ultimate of these) because it was the cheapest and one of the few available some months ago. So it is or was not crazy to buy it.
    The review has lots of data and wikipedia info but barely anything regarding tweaking and OC. I can't say I found a perfect setting because I am on Win11 and who knows why there are microstutters. I hope to have a stable system soon and find my final OC.

    Lovely card, but too expensive these days. Thank you for the review @Hilbert Hagedoorn

    METRO EXODUS :ENHANCED EDITION should have been in the benchmark list.

    What a beauty... work of art.
    Been underclocking/undervolting mine as I don't need extra power yet for 144hz ultrawide gaming and keep it running around 55c under load.
    "strokes card" :D

    Readily seen available at Amazon for a cool $1,800 and with a 50% confirmed buyer satisfaction rate. A 1000 Watt PSU was stressed by the buyers and some driver issues remain. I guess that if anyone 'absolutely' needs a GPU right now and has the cash its a OK buy. But to be sure people are not exactly standing in line in buying or meeting the Red Devil at Best Buys at 5AM. That I believe is still reserved for the NVIDIA cards. Naturally, I am also concerned about the 50% Amazon satisfaction rate by the actual buyers and who already have put real hard earned cash on the line! I tend to believe them more as the reviewers on any of the tech-channels.

    So the 6800/6800XT/6900XT haven't officially launched yet? sounds reasonable given their low stock :D

    AMD needs to address why the Vulkan API benchmark scores are so low.
    There are few Vulkan games like X4 Foundations which perform exactly like this benchmark. A GTX1080Ti is 40% faster than the 5700XT, to the point is faster than the 6700XT!! (with SAM 5700XT & 6700XT show same perf).

    While on RX 6900XT vs 3080Ti the 3080Ti is over 50% faster

    those cards are vaporware at least for some countries, some models like the "MSRP" nvidia model Linus complained about just to say "see they exist, at that price !" when they don't really
    which after the 50th card like that is just annoying
    as I said to I don't remember which youtuber, when your content is useful to absolutely no one because you're showing a product no one can buy, don't...all you do is generate HATE toward you toward the brand, it's 100% negative
    "hey see that card it's awesome but you'll never get one you poor not famous enough peasant" that's the reality in the end
    I have a 5950x-3090 clearly I don't care but still I would not do it or with huge warnings and disclaimers

    more on topic awesome framerates from AMD, kickass card for pure gamers, if you encode videos on the other hand you still want an nvidia because nvenc makes your encoding 2-3x faster
