    I'm ready to go with Team Red GPUs for the foreseeable future if for no other reason than to extend my middle finger to Nvidia. They've burned their bridges with me, and I've been using their cards for ~23 years.

      @Summit Security Door & Lock currently I only have the NVIDIA 1030gt. I had my computer custom built during the great GPU shortage and everything else was double or triple priced. Guy building it for me said "Do you want a 3060 for 600 dollars?" I said no.
      So been catching up on old school games, emulators, stuff that can run on a potato. I was able to get Diablo 2 Resurrected and Path of Exile running at 1440p surprisingly. 30 FPS sucks but it's playable!
      But man, once I get the XTX I'm playing everything at 4k.

    I went with AMD once. they had the same exact sales pitch as they have now. faster card for less.
    Problem is the card was not stable at all. It took me two years to give up on trying to make it stable. Finally switched to green and it's been 100% stable since day 1.
    never going back.

      @Bob Sentell I wanted AMD to win for a change. It's been a decade of dominance for Nvidia. I did buy the 4090 on day 1. But if AMD had a 4090 beater, I would've sold my 4090 and bought the 7900XTX. Wtf happened. AMD had a 1000$ 6900XT that performed great vs 3090. Now AMD has this 7900XTX at 1000$ again, but thid time it gets absolutely annihilated by 4090. Total destruction in every way possible. Like a first round knockout of one of the old Mike Tyson fights from the mid to late 80s. AMD never saw it coming and got completely destroyed. I don't think AMD can come back from this beating. It could be career ending.

      AMD lost alot of ground this generation. AMD was sooo close last gen. The 4090 just massacred Radeon. These new AMD cards are so bad, it makes the 4090 look like it's from the future. Hahaha. Got my 4090 day 1. I didn't want to wait 2 months for AMD to come out. I thought they had a real chance. I was rooting for AMD. This is the most disappointing generation AMD has ever had.

    Hope to see better support for AMD cards though. I know that gamer's may not really notice but there is a world of difference between NVIDIA shaders in UE5 and AMD in UE5, also UE4. Side by side UE4 and UE5 run better on NVIDIA. I am not a fanboy of team green and their abuse. But I use both brands in my household and between identical hardware except GFX card there are significant performance differences and visual differences of the final output. What I have always wanted was the same kind of support in engines and for hardware rendering of scenes that we get out of NVIDIA. We really need AMD to break into those areas and unseat NVIDIA because I am sick of NVIDIA's shit. I REALLY REALLY want AMD to start to dominate in shader language/game engines, etc.

      My last nvidia card was a GTX 1080 and my last intel cpu was a Intel Pentium® II Xeon™ 450 MHz. Actually it was 4 of 'em in a Compaq ProLiant 7000 system back in 99/00.
      That said it's normal for companies to land a miss. It happend for intel with NetBurst and Itanium. It happened for AMD with bulldozer.
      What's funny to me is that INTEL and NVIDIA seem to repeat all of AMD's mistakes but a decade later.

    I'm definitely going with AMD for my next build. XTX looks really good so far. I don't care about ray tracing and I think it doesn't make a gigantic difference when you are in the action and just focusing on whats going on. I think this will be a beast.

      @Michael Yang Yeah, fairly often RT ruins the atmosphere of games, gotta love that grainy texture it adds along with ruining contrast. It's neat where it works until you remember that half life 2 had fantastic water reflections over a decade ago. Surely we could figure out how to do reflections that good on more than 1 surface in over a decade no?

    • Sherrif
      Sherrif 2 ай бұрын +1

      @Random Dud3 it can depend on the game, ray tracing in a game like hitman is groundbreakingly beautiful but also functional. Being able to see movement in a reflection or a shadow of a character model that is off screen is massive, however I do hope that developers don't go all in on raytracing yet.
      As good looking as it is, making games have functionally beautiful reflection and shadow maps with the work arounds we've been using (and even making those methods work better) should still be a focus. Raytracing can look really good and it's actually relatively hands off for game devs to add to the game (compared to SSR and shadow mapping). One day we can start releasing games where non-ray tracing cards will just... have no shadows or reflections, but we're definitely not there, but sadly there are games that have gone this approach (one such game doesn't even launch without an "RTX" capable card).
      The problem with RTX, and why it's really hard to justify the framerate hit for most people, is the fact that we have "good enough" solutions that have been in games since quake 2 and most game devs work on making it better and better. The crux is it takes a lot of effort, since it's "fake" shadows and reflections, there's a lot of limitations and loss in quality and accuracy and an increase in the time developers spend on it. Meanwhile ray tracing just auto solves shadows and reflections, sure the model makers (and texture artists) have to spend a bit of effort for enabling ray tracing to work, but they no longer have to build a fake shader. What is happening though is kinda the worst of both worlds, as ray tracing is more and more possible, devs are spending less and less time working on the "fake" shadows and reflection systems and putting their beans in the ray tracing pot. Cyberpunk has amazing looking shadows and reflections (plus the light refractions) but if you don't have ray tracing a lot of objects just don't cast shadows, mirrors don't even have a reflection unless you "activate" them... it's almost like they used ray tracing to cut corners, not to make it look better.
      So what we get is a game with shadows and lighting that's only really a step above PS2 global emission unless you click on ray tracing. For most people that's plenty good enough, it has fake shadows in enough places to feel "lit" the most people ignore the lack of reflections in the puddles and only think about reflections when it comes to mirrors. They're "good enough" for people, but relatively terrible compared to the ray traced solutions.
      In plenty of games I feel like ray tracing isn't necessary because the developer (like hitman 3 from my earlier example) spent plenty of time making a robust and good looking game without the need for ray tracing. I still like that they add the support (that's how we drive demand for cards) but I'm not a fan of the trend of having ray tracing replace traditional fake lighting/reflection.

      For me it completely depends on the games Cyberpunk, Dying Light 2 look almost like completely different games with RT enabled. But there are definitely some games that have RT added later and those just don't look very impressive. Besides not being the best at RT these 7000 GPUs look really good.

    Good day Linus and team. I would love to see how this card card perform at 8k on titles people actually play competitively like csgo and COD as a few examples. The reason is if you want to go 8k 165hz for an advantage over you opponent and can push 165hz on that game should you do it? Of course we are still waiting for monitors that can support it, However would the GPU handle those simple games at that resolution and refresh rate?

      @Joseph Chong OK. Then buy a last gen AMD card. These new cards BARELY beat their best LAST gen card. Facts are facts. The 7900XTX is barely 35% faster than 6950XT. The 4090 is 35% faster than 7900XTX. With ray tracing turned on, some games are over 100% faster with a 4090. Well worth it for a few hundred bucks.

What a disappointment. 4090 for me. Easy decision. It dominates AMD so bad, thay it's a full generation ahead of AMD. And AMD was so close last gen. Nvidia put the sledgehammer down and just broke AMD into pieces. Like a WWE finishing move or something. Wow.

    Just a guess but I'm going to say that the 7900 XTX will provide the same performance as the future RTX 4080 Ti version, but will definitely be faster than the base version. And, of course, the 4080 Ti will still cost way more. So basically the 7900 XTX should win Vs the 4080 for the Value / Performance For Money factors.

      @Jadon R i got my 4090 day 1. I figured AMD would put up a much better showing than this. Last gen, the 1000$ 6900XT brought the fire. It competed very close to 3090. Now this gen, AMD brings the 1000$ 7900XTX. My 4090 donkey punches the 7900XTX badly six ways from Sunday. What a joke. AMD lost more ground in 1 generation than we may have ever seen or will ever see again. The worst 1000$ GPU of all time. AMD is trying to say they might be able to FIX THE DRIVERS!!!. I thought AMD never had driver problems. What a joke. I thought AMD was gonna bring it. I bought 4090 day 1 because I didn't want to wait 2 months for this. If the 7900XTX won, I would've sold my 4090 and bought AMD in a second. But this is the most brutal beating we have ever seen.

    I've always been an Intel-er for CPUs, but I managed to snag an NZXT prebuild that has a 5700x with a 3070 for $1500 when the GPU market was inflated.
    It was a significant bump up from when I built my 4790k with a 980ssc.

    Here is why I went AMD..
    I was thrilled to pick up a new AMD 6900xt Reference card for $700 on eBay back in October after waiting so long for prices to start to even out. I was coming from an Nvidia 1060 6GB with an Intel I5 that to this day can still hold it's ground and has plenty of life left for 1080p gaming (And also for Sale as a complete PC on eBay for anyone who is interested) , that thing was some of the best bang for you buck I've had! Safe to say I am very happy with my 6900xt, I didn't like the direction Nvidia was taking, and I always saw AMD as the "Android" and Nvidia as the "iPhone" but this generation gives me all the faith in AMD, their Processors are fantastic, and my GPU has been a monster! What intrigued me as as someone who enjoys their fair share of games of all types was their Smart Access Memory Technology, and the fact that AMD's GPU's seemed to be very underrepresented in the PC community. I looked at their catalogue of what they have to offer, and what I liked was the look of their lineup - it's simple, bold, and looks like it knows how to party when needed, and be also be all business. There is no denying that Nvidia is a leader in some categories like Ray Tracing being vastly superior, and 4k gaming, along with being easier to use with other software and such for developers. But NVidias offerings also cost more, and consume more power along with their GPU's being larger in size and frankly Uglier (although you have a TON of other manufacturer options so that's also a huge plus) What made me choose AMD was it's value per dollar. Let's be honest, most of us aren't buying super top end space ships for our PC's (I paired my 6900xt with a Ryzen 5 5600x) which is why AMD got my dollar. I find it more important now than ever to vote with your money. Nvidia and Intel have been absolutely CHECKED by AMD, and rightfully so. I'm someone who isn't loyal to a brand name, and who loves games from all systems. I just want my hard earned money to go to the product that fits my needs most for a reasonable price, and AMD has done that. Most of you aren't here for benchmarks and all that stuff, and I feel like too much of the PC gaming community invests too much time comparing specs, brands, and framerates instead of just enjoying your games. Don't get me wrong, I love me some specs, and silky smooth framerates but I care most about the experience. For that my 6900xt has given me a very rich experience with everything I've thrown at it. The only thing I'd really be able to notice with my eyes is the Ray Tracing being a little rough compared to Nvidia, but I honestly don't use the Ray Tracing option. I play my games on my 2k monitor, and I've been absolutely delighted. I like AMD's Adrenalin software and have had nothing but a breezy, smooth, strong experience. I love that my GPU is more energy efficient, smaller in size, and provides everything I want, and then some for a better price than Nvidias offerings do. Nvidia and AMD are keeping each other competitive and we all benefit from it! But AMD performs better per dollar and watts than Nvidia does. Nvidia can rev their engine a little higher, but 99% of you would not be able to notice with your naked eye nor even have the hardware to fully utilize the difference in higher end power. As of right now AMD has shown me they care about the value and performance to their customers, and look like they are continuing to do so, and for that I am team AMD at the moment =)

    If these cards are can beat a 3080 I think I'll use on in my next build. Nvidia's 3080 run around the same price range as the XTX so it'll really be a no brainer. From what I gather from the keynote they should be able to beat a 3080. The real question is encoding, raytracing performance, and upsampling performance. Supposidely AMD can compeat but we'll have to wait till the embargo is lifted.

      @Blank No I mean the 3080. The 3080 is still going for around 1k on Amazon. That means the 7900XTX's competitions is the 3080 since they're sold at the same price point. If the 7900XTX can beat the 3080 it'll be more attractive to consumers. The 4090 is just too expensive and because of it's bad launch and its small number of units sold it's probably not going to to have as great support as the 30 series. The 7900XTX isn't competing with the 4090 and likely wont beat it, but it doesn't have to since the 4090 is so expensive. Hardly anyone is buying them. I find it likely that the 7900XTX's performance will be close to a 3080TI, which still makes it the best offering by a long shot. 3080TI's on Amazon are going 1.4k which makes the 7900XTX the better deal by a long shot. The way the consumer will look at things is that they'd be paying a 40% markup for no reason if they chose the 3080TI.

    8:05 Definitely glass half full situation with AMD. Considering they released drivers updates for the R9 290x a whopping 10 years post-release... Because 'we thought we should bring the newer features to older cards too'. Where Nvidia just stops releasing updates, AMD actually keeps cards alive while they're still performing well. I mean I play 1440p on my R9 290x and I still get over 100fps in practically every title I throw at it.

    I always had AMD cards in my PC's. I only switched because back in the Day they would start giving me Artifacts in the better performing DX10 Preview mode of FSX.
    So that is when I made the switch. To the infamous GTX970 with the fake 4GIG, and belonged to the people that didn't understand why Tomb Raider 2 performed so bad on ultra graphics until it dawned on me that this really was a 3.5 GIG card and NVIDA had screwed us over.
    I'm now on my 3rd NVIDIA GPU but it seems with how things are developing it's back to AMD for me.
