    Great stuff, I remember when I said it will rock and people said it will be another flop like before.


    AMD really didn't disappoint this time around :D

    3080 has 50% more bandwidth,not a surprise it shows.

    6800XT is right on the RTX 3080’s heals at 4K. Will be cool to see what the 6900 can do

    this is what i expected.
    the 6800xt is the one for me, it'll be exactly what i need.

    btw...
    AMD always has wiggle room on pricing, do not be disappointed the 1st week at list (or higher) prices. they are expecting a response from Nvidia especially inbetween $400 - $600.
    expect a 1660ti like Ampere to make hay until rx 670 (equiv) comes out.
    i expect there to be better pricing and availability after 11/24 (US Thanksgiving)

    So at 1080p AMD is king, at 1440p AMD and Nvidia are about equal and 4K it's Nvidia's territory. I assume that at 3440x1440, Nvidia will have an advantage as well.

    I just read the TPU Smart Memory review for comparison and when they used a Ryzen 5900X system vs Intel, they had a major uplift of many games over the Intel CPU alone, with or without SAM. A couple of their review test were weird like

    F1 @ 4K FPS plummets by 40% vs 1440p on the Ryzen SAM system, yet it is STILL nearly double vs the Intel per resolution @ over 300 FPS?!

    Some were the same or nearly the same. I wonder how much fine wine is there still left from AMD as drivers matures on the 6x00 series?!

    Too bad no one did a 6800 SAM review to see how good it can be in a full AMD ecosystem.

    Nvidia is king at 4k until they run out of memory in future games 3090 aside...

    I expect March for good pricing /availability from both teams by that time the scalpers will be eyeing intel's new desktop cpu.

    capped the fps to 120hz? why? a lot of truth shows up after 120hz

    I think it goes beyond missing a DLSS feature, it's more the ray tracing implementation.

    can't see that happen anytime soon,I mean not for the whole lifespan of next gen consoles which are 4K 10gb also.

    nvidia emphasized bandwidth for 4K and tried to hit a sweet spot with vram size.
    amd went all in for capacity but lack of bandwidth shows already,though just a little in most cases.

    1080p is a joke for those cards,already was for high end turing.it's like running a 1080Ti at 720p.

    the more RT there is,the worse it does

    https://www.pcgameshardware.de/Rade...nchmark-Release-Review-vs-RTX-3080-1361423/3/

    scroll down.
    it's 2080S-2080Ti level in Control and Minecraft.It does well in Metro and SOTR which do one RT effect.

    AMD also crippled their RT considerably in Legion.

    Great to see this, the more competition the better. I can't wait till Nvidia drop their prices, they are already considering it and also wanting to release the 3080ti. Here is in Australia the 3080 is $400-500 higher than the 6800xt. Its crazy and the 3090 is $2500... I expect prices to drop by March next year.

    Metro Exodus results are fantastic, keeps up with 3080 @4k

    Great review as always , thank you @Hilbert Hagedoorn . Great to see AMD back in the game it does matches and fight the rtx 3080 and that in itself is great = competition is always a good thing for everyone. The only thing that it was a little bit of let down was 4k performance but it comes down to memory bandwith at that resolution , otherwise i'm proud of what AMD has done here , great card.

    That opengl is a horror story for ATI since their foundation. I cannot stop shaking my head.

    poor RT numbers and no DLSS alternative, sure it trades blows with 3080 in raw but the price difference is only $50

    Normalize cards per $ and per Watt. Different results.

    Their driver never got a proper fix for decades. The same should be happening with DX9/DX11 titles.

    AMD is smooth only for DX10/DX12/Vulkan API.

    It's over priced. You pay for extra vram. That's the story. I would prefer less vram since I will never play 4K ultra settings or 4k DXR.

    OGL needs to die. It does not matter at all.
