  1. Depend on OP's preference, IF RT is important, go for the RTX 3080. But, if rasterization is more important than RT, then the RX 6800 XT which is pretty fast for regular non-RT games. I went with an RX card because, while I appreciate that RT is the future, present gen cards from nVidia (let alone AMD) are still not good enough to do games at high framerates at native res (like 4K or perhaps 1440P) without the need for DLSS. Plus, as someone at guru3D had said, DLSS is planned obsolescence, there'll come a time when GPU's are powerful enough that DLSS isn't needed. Also, for RT to
  2. Might as well add my Heaven and Valley scores...CPU at 4.45GHz, undervolted my GPU.
  3. Aw shoot, how did I miss this? FX 770K is weaker than an FX6300, it looks like Apex has a point, this could be a factor as to why your RX 480 is 'breathing' as it should.
  4. Ryzen loves faster RAM, perhaps a pair of 8GB 3600MHz RAM....I have a Ryzen 9 3900X paired with 3600Mhz RAM (see sig), and I'm willing to bet just on CPU performance alone, mine would outpace yours.
  5. I have a Sapphire Nitro+ card, and when I play DX9 games, it generally draws about 50-60W while maintaining a constant 144fps to match my monitor's 144 refresh rate. But when I play a more modern game (DX11/DX12) I'd notice that it would kick into gear and draw >250W. Also, ensure Radeon Chill is disabled as I've heard saves power by limiting framerate and such.
  6. OP had swapped a GTX 1080 Ti for the RX 6800 XT, so, my question is, did he run DDU first? I'd swapped a GTX 1080 for a GB RX VEGA64 Gaming OC (the GTX 1080 went into my HTPC rig), I'd run DDU in Safe Mode to get rid of all traces of nVidia driver, shut down and swap out the cards. Also, I'd had disabled net connection by unplugging my LAN cable (Windows has a darn bad habit of installing older drivers should it detect the absence of the GPU driver) or disable WiFi before running DDU. My GB VEGA64 Gaming OC ran like a champ in my 2nd rig......till it died. I've replaced it with a P
  7. I'd agree with you on that, that guy knows diddly squat! To OP, just a shot in the dark, but have you enable 'Enhanced Sync', if yes, try disabling it and see what happens....
  8. He's talking about AMD RX 6000 series, hence my response since I'd owned an RX 6800 and now own an RX 6900 XT. One thing to bear in mind is where one buys the card from, in my neck of the woods, both the RX 6800 XT and the RTX 3080 are virtually impossible to find. In my case, an RTX 3080 cost more than an RX 6800 XT, sometimes by a fair bit. So, if the OP has the ideal choice between an RTX 3080 or the RX 6800 XT (and ideally, at very similar price point), I'd say it's entirely up to him (bsed on his own personal preference and usage scenario) to pick either as both are great gam
  9. The thing with DLSS, and why I have reservations about it, is it's up to nVidia to do their DLSS optimization on it, IF more and more RT games are released in the future, nVidia may have to pick and choose which gets the DLSS treatment. At 1080P, yes, RT can be done natively now, but at higher res, that's where DLSS is needed because present hardware, both nVidia and AMD, are not powerful enough to do RT natively at, say, at QHD or 3440x1440, let alone 4K. Don't get me wrong, I'd said RT is the future, and a nice feature to have now, but hardware is not powerful enough as of now,
  10. Depends on res you game at, I had a Nitro+ RX 6800 for a month or so, it ran all the games I'd thrown at it with ease at 3840x1080, only game I had issue with was Metro Exodus with RT enabled, it'd CTD. I've since replaced it with a Nitro+ RX 6900XT (only because the RX 6800 XT is near impossible to find). With performance comparison among the RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT - RX 6800 XT's nearer the RX 6900 XT level I believe - it represents the 'sweet spot' for AMD high end GPU's. price difference between an RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 is relatively small, the RX 6900 XT entails a
  11. As requested, what's your system spec? What kind of games do you play? Where do you play to buy the card from?
  12. Run AMDcleanuputility, since previous driver is an AMD one, then reboot (ensure that you've downloaded the latest driver - although some have said 20.11.2 is better iirc - and that you're NOT connected online as Windows would sometimes try to install some crap old driver), and install the driver you want. I had an RX 6800 before upgrading to an RX 6900 XT, it was awesome and I'd had no issue with it running games....only Metro Exodus has CTD issue, especially with RT enabled (tho even without RT, it'd CTD randomly). I'm on 20.12.1 since the fixes in 20.12.2 doesn't interest me.
  13. LOL, that'd explain a lot! I'd read your thread, and I was scratching my head as to why an 850W Seasonic PSU can't handle an RTX3090, the PSU actually being a 620W one cleared things up real quick. II'd suggest that instead of getting an 850W PSU, get a 1000W one instead, gives you much more headroom for adding more parts to your rig (like more HDDs, AIO's or custom loop, etc)
  14. Try Superposition, and Timespy....and Firestrike Extreme. I usually have MSI Afterburner running to check temps and gpu clocks while I was running these benchmarks. For pure benchmarking, I'd disable MSI AB because it may chew up precious CPU cycles, thus lowering the final score.....I believe so anyway.
  15. I tried setting Metro Exodus Sam's Story framerate to 144Hz, ensure I was on Ultra and started the game. Framerate's much better, only one slowdown, and it was at the fire station level up on the tower , but other than that, it's good. Now, I get anything between 40+fps to 100+fps, doesn't dip below 1100MHz, it seems to be smooth now. So weird, having the boost clock go all over the place previously, strengthens my belief that it's a driver issue. I guess AMD need to polish their drivers a little more for the newer cards.
