    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Which GPU?   
    No, that is quite a bit worse than the 1050ti or the 470/480/570. For AMD cards try looking for the 470/480/570, others will probably be too slow or too power hungry or too expensive.
     
    Here is a comparison between the rx570 and the gtx1050ti so you can have an idea of the difference between those and decide if it is worth the price difference: https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2525?vs=2573
    470 and 480 are close to the 570, with the 470 being slightly slower and the 480 slightly faster.

    youtube-dl, you need to download the software, but it isn't sketchy.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in RX 5700 XT Strix/Nitro+ or RTX 2070 Super   
    I would personally avoid Asus models from AMD cards, they are known to have issues that Asus never bothers to even try to fix or fixes in the cheapest way possible, and don't really perform that well compared to similar models from Sapphire and PowerColor.
     
    One option would be to get some cheap decent RX5700(XT) and use it till you can get something better next gen, as those options that you listed are way too expansive for what they offer over cheaper options.
    Also in general high-end models of cards aren't worth it, in general it's better to just get the best cheap model unless you have some special need that only those high-end models are able to meet.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Flying Sausages in (Update: Jan21st available) in between the middle - RX 5600/XT benchmarks found   
    No, that's exactly the point, cards with enough memory(8GB+) and bandwidth(PCIe3 x16/PCIe4 x8 or better) have no problem and having one seems like it's already enough to mostly avoid the problem(5500XT 8GB avoids it by having 8GB and the 1650 Super by having PCIe3 x16), the 5500XT 4GB don't have enough of neither of those.

    That's because PCIe4 x8 = PCIe3 x16 so when at PCIe3 x8 the card becomes bandwidth starved if the game require more than 4GB, as a example the 8GB don't show the same improvement by using PCIe4 and neither do the 1650 Super show the problems the 5500XT 4GB have, as it uses PCIe3 x16. As far as I know that was the conclusion on the original PCGH article and also HUB conclusion on their tests.

    KaitouX got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Should I get the RX 5700 or the 1660 Super?   
    Only you can know that, check benchmarks on various sites and decide it. Check the games you play, the resolution and setting that you want to use(and what you would want to use in the period that you will own the card) and pick the card that will match the performance that you (will) need.
     
    Personally going by US prices the cheapest 1660S that I would consider is the EVGA SC Ultra for $240 while the cheapest 5700 i would consider is the XFX for $300.

    Because current RTX cards are too weak to do it in any proper way.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Slottr in Which CPU+GPU Configuration?   
    Ryzen 3600 + RX 5700 would be the best option performance wise if the XT cited above is too expensive.

    Ah. You're in Canada. Should have led with that.
     
    Then get a 3600 and a 5700. That will do much better. Only reason to get an Nvidia card in this market is if you want raytracing (you don't)

    Not knowing your budget fully doesnt help much. What do you have to spend? You can get an XFX THICC card for 360.

    KaitouX got a reaction from realpetertdm in Why is Intel's new naming scheme so bad?   
    I mean, they probably should have just changed the numbering like Nvidia/AMD did after their 9000 GPUs, AMD did the X000 thing once for example, the other time they went to 200 after 8000, while Nvidia went from 9000 to 200.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Bombastinator in Hold on to those christmas wishlists - AIB RX 5500 to be released + review   
    AMD pulled the Nvidia and released a card with the same price/performance as a 3 year old card, i kinda expected it after the 5700(XT) but in this case it is even worse as Nvidia cards are straight up better in every single way, the 8gb should cost $150 to be decent, maybe around $120 or so to be actually good.
     
    TL;DW for the reviews of the 8GB model: It's the RX590 with lower power consumption, so get the 1650 Super to get almost the same performance for less money and power, or get the 1660 Super to get a faster card for not so much more money and the same power.
    For the 4GB model: It shouldn't exist.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Envit0 in Which 2080 Super to buy? which brand? what is the quieter one?   
    The heatsinks are more than big enough to dissipate heat passively during low usage, and fans not spinning would be better long term, as often the fans are the first thing to fail.
    I believe ever since Nvidia 9xx series and AMD 3XX it have become quite common to let the cards passive under certain temperatures targets, for example both Asus and GB cards that you posted seems to turn off the fans at idle(not sure why the Guru3d shows the GB card making noise at idle, other reviews say it was off during idle/low usage), the Asus low noise at idle is due the fans not turning on at all, 29db is the room noise level.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Windows95 in Which 2080 Super to buy? which brand? what is the quieter one?   
    It seems like the GB is the best that is available for that price, so yeah.
    You shouldn't need to adjust anything, but you probably can just use Afterburner if you need to change something.
    Settings are dependent on what you want, as long you don't let it over the safe temperatures it will be fine.

    Aren't both of those worse than the Nitro and GB OC? The Taichi might be better than the GB but the Strix is probably worse in every way, but i doubt the Taichi is better than the Nitro.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Damage9i05 in Best GPU for £350 or under ?   
    Unless you pay more Nvidia is going to be worse at most games compared to the 5700(XT).
    Here is a comparison between 2060 SUPER(£340) vs the cheaper 5700 (£300)
     

     
    The 5700XT (£340) is faster than the 2060 Super, staying right in the middle between the 2060S and the 2070S.
    If you care about RT then you should just wait till Nvidia and AMD releases their new cards.
