AMD RX 6800XT AIB synthetic benchmarks: Pure rasterized faster than RTX 3080, RT on par with RTX 2080 Ti

1 hour ago, Gohardgrandpa said:

In other news I saw today nvidia is making a beefed up 3070 so they'll have a card at the $600 price point too. They must have inside info or something.

Those are old rumors, the more recent information indicates Nvidia has cancelled all plans for extra 3070 and 3080 variants until the mid-cycle refresh, as they are definitely not having any troubles selling the cards they already have available.

You mean selling the cards no one can even buy? XD

Not quite no one apparently.  They have been seen around.  There are apparently not nearly even close to enough of them though.  Becomes a question of if this almost but not quite zero supply being intentional or not.

That is interesting. Honestly a “3070 Ti” with those specs would be a perfect 1440p card if such a thing is released. I was hoping to grab a new card before Cyberpunk releases but the plain 3070 just does not seem like enough of an upgrade from the 1080 Ti I currently have.

 

Really excited to see what AMDs new cards look like and how Nvidia responds.

Amd driver 👎

Also Nvidia driver.  They both tend to have huge problems when a new architecture comes out.  Nvidia is much bigger so they seem more able to fix things faster.  They seem about equal as to actual base quality though.

The whole 5700xt thing seems to be interesting.  There are apparently a few people that had massive continuing issues and a very large percentage of people that had no problems whatsoever.  To the point that people are questioning where the reports of problems are coming from or if the problems even actually exist.  I read another thing that said there was actually a hardware fault with the 5700xt that had to be worked around.   It makes me wonder if the small number of people who were having continuing problems have some sort of similarity or set of similarities in their systems.

I’d love to know what the actual issue was but it forced me to sell the card I had and go back to nvidia. Had issues with a Xfx 5700 and a sapphire pulse 5700xt. When the cards worked right the performance was great, I didn’t have the best of luck with them tho

So that’s two. @Gohardgrandpa and @AlwaysWong.  I had a 5700xt and returned it but not because I had significant problems.  One of the complications is apparently there haven’t been ANY reviewers that have had any noticeable problems with the 5700xt.  It makes me wonder if there was a similarity between the two systems.

Personally my Red Devil 5700XT has been good to me! minor driver issues earlier this yeat but now rock solid.

I keep seeing people say they aren’t having issues now and that’s great news. Hopefully the new cards are solid because that’s probably the only card I’ll be able to get anytime soon.

RX 5700 did have a fair amount of issues, that was quite a big transition of architecture compared to normal. GCN based cards have had really great driver stability for a long time, but that comes from not much really changing at all for the time. RDNA will end up the same too if it goes the same path, the other thing is AMD simply does have more resources now too so should be able to deal with this better if they choose to.

I've been using a rx580 8gb for over a week now and not an issue, can't really remember ever having an issue with this card to tell you the truth.

I have had zero issues with my Sapphire 5700 XT

Of course the majority of 5700xt owners wouldn't have problems. >50% dissatisfaction rate would be catastrophic galactic failure that requires immediate recall. Now how much of rate would be acceptable? Even if it's only 1% and you sell a million GPUs, that's ten thousands pissed customers writing reviews and their horrible experiences online. 

We all know Nvidia sells way more GPUs than AMD but the AMD driver complaints are way more numerous and serious than Nvidia.

 

After 6 months of horribly broken driver that AMD themselves acknowledged and finally published a big stability update, the complaints has died down considerably recently.

 

If AMD is smart, their drivers for 6xxx has to be rock solid or public perception of their driver stability is sealed for an other generation or two, and dare I say, for fucking good reasons.

I personally disagree. DLSS' biggest limitation is that it's not universally supported and Papa Nvidia has to bless your game with AI training to enable it. It's not like an API where the developers can just choose to incorporate it at will. There are less than 20 games that currently support it and only about 25 more with future support announced.

 

I think it would be fair if it was universally available, but Nvidia gets to cherry pick the titles it supports with AI training. So to compare only DLSS-enabled titles and say the 3080 is the best card because it's faster in ~50 out of thousands of PC titles is kind of silly. Pure raster vs pure raster is an objective standard.

 

This is the same thing we saw with S3 and the MeTaL API 20 years ago, it blew the doors off 3dfx/ATi/Nvidia in the small number of titles where it was supported but was objectively inferior elsewhere. Times have changed in a lot of ways but back then consistent performance with no tricks ultimately won out.

That's just not true... I have developer access to DLSS 2.0 and you don't have to specifically train the game for it to work... I've had that confirmed as well by nvidia at GTC... There's a dev branch at the moment where it will work with any unreal engine 4 game, whilst I haven't tried implementing it myself yet it doesn't seem too difficult from the documentation.

Yeah, but it still needs to be specifically implemented in the game which means 99% of the games will never see it used. Out of hundreds of games released just this year, we have a list of like 10 games that support it. Some of which are stuck on DLSS 1.x version.

It's less the number, and more the significance of the games supported. Still, going forward, more games will be supported.

Wasn’t 50% according to the wildly unscientific poll though.  2 yeses, and one “a little bit” total.  What I kept on hearing watching review videos was “we keep hearing about problems but we’ve never experienced any” was the driver problem overblown?  You’ve described “horribly broken drivers” I believe your statement was.  Did you own a 5700xt? Did you have problems?

I know there were real problems with multi- monitors set up and some 1080p 240Hz monitors.

However just in this forum I already helped diagnose two "AMD GPU driver" problems traced back to bad PSUs. Many people see their games crash and automatically blame the drivers because it's all over the place on reddit. Things can blow out of proportion easily nowadays. Just look at the 3080 SP caps fiasco. How some manufacturers cheap out on SP caps, blah blah. It turns out it's mostly just a driver bug. 

That gets me wonder how many are actually AMD driver related.
