Got the RX 6800 and so far I must say I am VERY impressed. Like WOW. I haven't built a new-ish PC in over 10 years so the performance gains are just staggering. It's one thing to read reviews and to see FPS charts, but it's another to run synthetics and real workloads and watch it fly.Glad to hear you're satisfied with your 6800XT.
Yeah, I plan on running Timespy and Unigine Superposition to see if there's issues and to make sure clocks, power, and temperatures are all within expectations. Might throw in Furmark as well for kicks. Unfortunately, I don't play PC games all that much anymore so I don't have an up-to-date Steam library with something graphically challenging. I might try scripting 3DMark and Unigine to run for a few hours at a time to simulate a gaming session instead.
So far, I've spent the last 2 hours just running it through its paces in 3DMark Timespy Extreme + the stress test. Stock settings were in-line w/ my expectations, then overclocked it and re-ran the tests to make sure. Next up: Unigine Superposition. If it passes that, then I think I'm good to roll.
Edit: It passed!
