This is all spot on. CP2077 will drive hardware sales for the next two years and will probably attain better FPS with RT on Ampere but Nvidia pooped all over efficiency this round and gimped their vram amounts.Looking forward to seeing actual game performance, never mind the RT stuff. Had a 2080S, and now a 3080, still only one game I wanted to play that used RT, and was playable; Control. C2077 will probably be the second, expecting nvidia to be screaming about their 2077 performance with RT on. They will probably get a lot of mileage out of it too, as 2077 is a huge game.
AMD should make a big deal out of their perf/w and much lower power draw for what is rumoured to be near parity performance. Nvidia has been playing that up for a while now, yet here we have them with 350W-400W+ consuming GPUs right now.
I saw some unverified claims on twitter that 6 am PST is AMDs official release time.some people said they were able to get the nvidia 3000 series cards at best buy website at 6 am Pacific time
For gaming yes, RDNA2 is much better vs Ampere.NAVI21 GPU details
- 519.8 sqmm
- 26.8 Billion Transistors
And there we have it - more proof that TSMC 7nm is vastly superior to Samsung 8nm. Navi 21with better perf/w and better xtr/mm2 (Navi 51.6m xtrs / mm2 vs. Ampere 45m xtrs / mm2). AMD is going to have the trifecta win this round for technical achievement - better rasterization, better efficiency, and smaller chips. Nvidia will only win on RT performance.
To be fair, gumstick m.2 drives winning out creates all kinds of headaches for PCIe video cards. If the u.2 form factor had been a presence on desktops, we wouldn't be having this conversation.And one of those "sides", is pointed directly at your (hot) PCI-E 4.0 NVMe drive, heating it just like a blowtorch. Great design, AMD!
Yikes. The Zen3 release wasn't a paper launch, but looks like RDNA2 might be as bad as Ampere. It makes sense, we know AMD is supply limited and Zen3 only takes up a bit over 150 mm^2 (5900x/5950x) at most and half that for single chiplet CPUs. The announced RDNA2 products take up just over 500 mm^2. Obviously you're going to get a lot more Zen3 product out of a single wafer. On top of that, margins for Zen3 will be higher than RDNA2 so AMD has an incentive to give more wafers to that product line.
But surely that only applies to GA100, which is made on TSMC's 7nm not Samsung 8nm.For gaming yes, RDNA2 is much better vs Ampere.
But NV will make tones of money selling Ampere in the Professional market for Creation/AI/ML since Ampere is much more efficient in ML workloads with those new Turing Cores.
Well, AMD handled the original GCN release poorly as Tahiti took a long time to mature* but once it did it didn't look too good for the GTX680 either in terms of perf or even perf/watt. As is almost customary, GTX680 wasn't helped by lack of VRAM either.the way i see it, nVidia have been kings of Perf/Watt since the GTX600 days (i know, i had the GTX680), just look at all the reviews.
Horrible. Memoryexpress and Canada computers are the only official online partners in Canada for AMD.
I had a 6800 added to cart but when I clicked on checkout it went to a 'service temporarily unavailable' page. Nice, lol. This was just as bad as Ampere. Frank Azor is going to be torched (and rightfully so) on twitter today.wtf... refreshed the page for 6800xt on Amazon until it actually appeared and it just says unavailable, lol
omg the cart service on AMD's site is broken haha this is maximum dumb
**gone in an instant**
Why so amazing? We knew they'd be competitive, and it is.The Radeon RX 6800 XT is a worthy opponent to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. It offers similar performance at better power efficiency and lower noise levels. In our Radeon RX 6800 XT review, we also take a closer look at raytracing and "Rage Mode", a new 1-click method for overclocking.www.techpowerup.com
I AM OFFICIALLY AMAZED!
