    i bet pascal and polaris are still gonna be +50% of all entries

    yeah rdna2 is amazing from an engineering standpoint.a gpu tweaked to hit +2.6GHz with on-die cache,a wet dream for a gpu enthusiast.16g vram for longevity.I'm just soooo disappointed they ditched ML and went with an upscaler for fsr.I'd rather they had ML image reconstruction ready in a year than give us spatial upscaler now.

    Maxwell (980 Ti). Longest-lived GPU I ever had :D (Previously paired with the longest-live CPU I ever had, a Sandy Bridge 2500K.)

    GTX 1070, because a 3060 Ti is the only worthy upgrade, but still cost €950.

    Maybe 2 or 3 years from now i can upgrade for 10% above MSRP.

    i like 3060ti most from the entire new generation of ampere/rdna2
    this and 6800.If I had to make a choice I'd rather buy these two than a single 3080ti.

    value per dollar -> if only these were remotely close.....


    energy efficiency -> superb,up there with rdna2/tsmc's 7nm enhanced

    DLSS -> check
    RT performance -> way above the 6700xt counterpart
    https://www.computerbase.de/2021-06...m-performancerating-fuer-raytracing-2560-1440

    theoretically speaking 3060ti is thed best value gpu since rx570/580,but we know how it turned out.at this point it's only 50eur cheaper than 3070ti.

    Still on the Fury, somehow it's surviving.

    I refuse to pay the absurd prices currently being charged... £700-£900 for a 6700Xt £900+ for 6800. Overclockers are charging £900 for the reference edition... It's supposed to be £500, they're no better than scalpers...

    pascal+polaris with 57% of entries at this point

    couldn't add more entries into the poll or I'd definitely go as far as 10-11 yr old architectures.
    I myself used 9700Pro for friggin forever until it had trouble playing even video files.

    I would of been on Pascal if I didn't get super damn lucky with stock drops notifying me that a Sapphire Nitro+ 6800XT SE was in stock at Scan.co.uk and I actually managed to grab it at just above retail price.

    I have a feeling Pascal will heavily dominate this list. That generation was so good, probably the best generation of GPU's there has been. Polaris will come in second as it too was a great bang for the buck range of cards.
