Got my reference rx 6800 xt in yesterday Assetto Corsa Competizione is running on the highest settings flawlessly on my 3440x1440 monitor. I'm pretty happy with it coming from my 5700xt and 2080 super before that. I have to say it feels weird having AMD at the very high end. It hasn't been since the 290x days since AMD has been competitive like this. I like it!

Took out the word Cyber.
Same experience in Assetto Corsa Competizione, huge, almost doubling of performance coming from Radeon VII! Game became very smooth after upgrading my CPU to Ryzen 5900X and then got perfect after changing GPU :)

Some of the better results I've seen from the technology. I'd do a few more runs and test in a few different spots just to make sure it isn't a fluke.

I still haven't tried SAM on my rig yet. I barely learned how to use CapFrameX this AM....lol

It does spit out some interesting data and makes some nice looking graphs.

I think I'll play around with SAM today and see what's up with it.

Went into the uEFI and enabled the re-size bar option, booted windows did a test run....No gain
Went back into the uEFI and enabled the above 4G/Mining??? just below it, switched PCIe from auto to Gen4....It worked.

The only thing I tested so far was the canned benchmark in Shadow of the Tomb Raider @1080p....I think I chose highest? RT on Ultra for the worse case scenario and higher gpu demand? I didn't want to monkey with the settings to see, as I didn't want to start all over again. All runs were the same settings in the end.

Here's my results. From top to bottom SAM enabled and working, SAM enabled not working, my overclocked settings, default settings. No other changes

Actually the gain from default settings to overclocked + SAM aren't bad for free with a little trial and error on the clocks.

I've finally run Watch Dogs 2 as the Polish review suggests the 6800XT performs really badly in the game, but it's actually not true. The average fps I got is 100.9 at the same Ultra preset. I'm 8 hours in so I don't think there are better results out there. Of course, fps drops to 70 in most demanding areas but still not anywhere near as low.

Hardware Unboxed have now reviewed this model. He found it to be very quiet as well.

Very quiet. So quiet you'll never hear it come to a store near you. ;)

I wish we had a more solid date for the next tier of cards, but they must be really constrained on wafers if they won't give anything more solid than 1H, which means we might not even see an announcement until May.

I get people being disappointed with the availability, but honestly I hope its because AMD has been putting wafers towards the mid-range GPUs and new APUs. That's going to give them the biggest consumer boost, and especially if they can get them into laptops with the new Zen 3 APUs. Getting OEMs to quickly move the 4800H/x060 systems to 5800U/H with RDNA2 mid-range chips (offering about 2070 performance) would be pretty huge. I'm seeing a lot of people so won over by the 4000 series mobile chips, now AMD needs to capitalize on that to win people back over on their GPUs as well.

The RX 6800 I ordered (Gigabyte RX6800) was delivered yesterday and I installed it in my rig that has a 3900x/X570 Gigabyte Aorus Elite mb.

I previously had a Radeon 5600XT. WOW is this card fast! It will go into my 5900x rig (MSI X570 Unify custom watercooled cpu and gpu) when the Waterblock from Alphacool is delivered.

The stock 3 fan cooler is really beautiful and works well.

It is faster than my GTX 2080TI and rock solid.

Excited to pair it with the 5900x and do some serious MSFA 2020!

Thank you Shmee. That is high praise from a person rockin a 3090 FTW 3 Ultra!

Once I get my water loop on the 5900x reworked it would be fun to compare your 5800x/3090 FTW to my 5900x/ RX 6800 in a series of Benchmarks.

I'm running 32g (2x16) of Gskill DDR4-3600 Trident Neo CL16-19-19-39 ram with a MSI X570 Unify mb and a sabrent 1TB NvME-4 ssd. I will have both the cpu and the gpu custom watercooled (Optimus wb for cpu and Alphacool wb for gpu) 480mm and 360 mm rads. All housed in a Fractal Define 7XL (HUGE).

Where did you order it from?

My EK waterblock and backplate came today (Thank you for the quick shipment Performance PC!). I has originally ordered the Alphacool block but it still hasn't arrived at PPC so I canceled that and went with the EK block and backplate.

Of course I'm running the 6800, not the 6800XT or 6900 BUT with stock cooling max gpu temp was 78-79 and hotspot was 95. With the EK block and backplate max temp was 53 and hotspot 63.

Nice drop in temps!

What clocks do you run on your card?
What were you running with your temp examples?

Kenmitch, stock clocks right now. Held off on overclocking until I had a waterblock on it. I'll run some tests this upcoming week.

RX 6800 with EK waterblock OCs very nicely. Some examples:

Firestrike 33552 (max boost 2293 base 1815) and overclocked 35541 (max boost 2589 and base 1815)

Firestrike Ultra stock 10693 (max boost 2316 base 1815 Mhz) and Overclocked 11600 (max boost 2576 and base 1815).

Time Spy Extreme stock 7319 (max boosty 2298 and base 1815) and overclocked 7875 (Max boost 2573 and base 1815).

In the Radeon software under performance I overclocked by7 setting it to manual, increasing max to 2600 and setting power limit to max. Didn't fool with memory.
