    KaitouX got a reaction from FaxedForward in Ryzen 5 3600x+3080 bottleneck?   
    Nice "at least 30% slower at games". Even at 720p the difference isn't "at least 30%".

    No, the lane number doesn't change, the speed of each does.

    I'll most likely go for Intel as I want something that is totally reliable. If that costs me a few extra bucks, so be it.

    KaitouX got a reaction from ONOTech in AMD annouces RDNA2 and Zen3 dates   
    Why are people acting like announcing the announcement isn't something that basically every company does at this point? As far as I know it's not like AMD had promised to release the GPUs together with Nvidia, so I don't really see the issue here, particularly when considering that only Polaris was released closer to the Nvidia equivalent ever since GCN 1.0 in 2012. AMD(TSMC) having to supply Zen 3 and RDNA2 for desktop, and Zen 2+RDNA2 for the consoles at the same time probably doesn't make it any easier to launch them.
     
    RT will be on RDNA2, pretty sure AMD does have a Shadow Play equivalent, and they also have FreeSync(the more popular "Sync", AKA G-Sync Compatible).

    At least in Control, according to Digital Foundry tests, there is no difference in the performance hit caused by RT between the 2080 and 3080, the performance difference stayed the same regardless of RT being on or off. Naturally there are no tests on other games, so that doesn't confirm it, but there's no proper confirmation that the RT performance hit will be lower/won't be there for the new GPUs.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in RTX 3080 relative performance data from Digital Foundry's video   
    And the 3070 is basically the same as the Sapphire, as it doesn't have the fan in the back.
    And as far as I have seen many AIB models also have holes in the backplate showing the heatsink, so that might be pretty common this gen.

    Nvidia themselves kinda said that RT performance increase isn't much different than the rasterization one.

    You can see here that the improvements in non-RT games isn't much different than the ones with RT, and DF results kinda show the same.

    On the cooler:
    Sapphire have done the throw hot air towards the top of the case multiple times in the past:
    Fury Tri-X
    Vega 56
    Both which are much the same idea as the cooler on the 3070.
    And probably there are others with similar solutions, so it's not like that throwing air at the CPU haven't been done before, what haven't been done is the fan being at the back like on the 3090/3080(as far as I know).
    Also one thing is that from the look of the DF video, the FE cooler probably have the fan stop feature, as the GPU fan wasn't spinning even though the system was turned on at the start of the video(1:40 or so). The FE cooler might actually be a good option this time, if it is quiet enough it will probably be a nice option at what seems to be the MSRP for the basic models(?), hopefully the cooler on the 3070 and possibly 3060 also ends up being good.

    Probably the reviews will be out by the launch day.
     
    ComputerBase benchmarks also show the 2080Ti with a 104 FPS avg. with 89 FPS lows at 4K Ultra Nightmare (Edit: looks like it's on High, I'm not sure, but they show that the performance difference between Ultra Nightmare and High isn't that big, it's ~6% when using the 2070 Super.), so Nvidia numbers doesn't seem that far off, at least when looking the few sections of the video showing the 2080Ti. Still probably DOOM is a best case for the new GPUs, otherwise Nvidia wouldn't use it.

    There seems to be quite a bit of conflicting information on these new cards regarding this. This is what the spec sheet says for the 3070:

    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in AMD Radeon RX 5300 Officially Announced   
    Good luck finding someone that would use this GPU with a B550 or X570 board. For most people this GPU will be limited to PCIe 3.0 x8, just like the 5500XT, which the 4GB had already shown issues due to low memory+PCIe 3 x8.
     
    AMD doesn't think so, they are competing against the 1650.
     
    Edit:
    If it was as fast as the 1650 Super, it would be as fast as the 5500XT 4GB. And it would suffer even more when VRAM matters. Also based on previous launches AMD is probably going to price the GPU according to the one they compared to, which is the 1650.

    KaitouX got a reaction from gloop in Are AIO’s really worth the effort?   
    This isn't right, $80 AIOs are usually not really better than $80 air coolers, you need to go to around $120+ to get to the ones worth getting if you really want lower temps.
    What is the temperature you're getting? And what cooler do you have?

    KaitouX got a reaction from seapriestess in AMD Radeon RX 5300 Officially Announced   
    They probably saw the shitty 1650 and thought "We can beat that, we can increase the price", but then Nvidia came with the 1650 Super and destroyed AMD hopes and dreams with the 5500XT lol.
    The 5600XT was really weird, because they compared it with the 1660 Ti even though everyone knew that the 1660 Super was basically the same but much cheaper, the update mess was probably the only way they were able to make it decent without lowering the price closer to 1660 Super levels.
     
    I'm expecting AMD to price RDNA2 at the same price as Ampere ~-5%, really don't expect them to try to move the market much, so I think it might keep happening. 5500XT and 5600XT being priced the same to what AMD considered it's Turing equivalents kinda implies this for me, really shows that the 5700 and 5700XT were only well priced because they had less features.
