I honestly think Best buy is doing ordering right by far, they make you enter your email address and then they send a code and you input the code to their site and then you can continue your checkout.

  • The title to this video is misleading click-bait: In distillation, this review gives AMD a participation award for continuing to improve their GPU performance, but acknowledges that performance cannot stand with NVIDIA GPU’s, and are not good choices for video editors, or even some games- opinions supported by benchmark and performance reviews in numerous other places. A new GPU that underperforms in the same currently available price class of cards does “NOT disappoint”? Really? Unfortunately, people who don’t follow reviews to their conclusion (such as a friend who offered this very video as “proof” I should go with AMD) will make the wrong decision because of your misleading, self-serving click-bait title. I could never subscribe to someone who has the ethics of a cheap tabloid.

  • DLSS isn't that good. You cannot upscale low res frames by using data from a previous high res frame and motion vector information. The reason is simple: 1/3 of the time you strafe the camera fast and those frames don't have a relation, so you just have low internal res. Another 1/3 you strafe slowly and again far objects are just low res wile the main character closer to you looks ok. Just the last 1/3 of the time you standing still or moving straight and from than 1/4 is a high res frame and the rest upscaled. The correct comparison should be done vs Radeon Boost with similar settings as the DLSS level. As for RT just wait for games with FidelityFX SSSR and Denoiser, today's RT is optimized for NV.

Plus, you've not got a 6900 XT to compare here. Having said that, there's no denying that AMD are still behind Nvidia on that basis. Maybe we'll gen a 6xxxx Gen 2 set of cards that are more 3xxx comparable.

  • This video felt like about 13 minutes and 7 seconds of Linus dunking on the 6800XT... But I do have to say this. People in the comments are really acting like ray tracing is something people super care about. Well, spoiler alert, it's not really a feature that people super care about. The frame rate boost and DLSS are the main things that gamers care about, and while ray tracing is a completely nice thing to have, you can still game at a good graphical quality *without it.*. My point is, *You don't need Ray Tracing to game, and you don't even need it to game at a good graphical setting.* You only need it to game if you want your games to look like the realest games in the world. And most people would be completely fine if it didn't exist for personal gaming use for a little longer. That being said, RTX is still a completely nice feature that many people use, and if you want a feature and have the money, go ahead. AMD focused on the biggest thing, the frame rate improvement, which is more than enough reason to buy a 6800XT. DLSS needs to definitely implemented, and it should be able to handle ray tracing a lot better. But just saying that NVIDIA is better because of ray tracing only is *not fair*. The 6800XT showed its power in the standard gaming department, it's something that I do thing NVIDIA should be scared of. That being said, I *do think the 3000 series are the better card.* But for the price that the 6000 series is available at, and for the good standard gaming FPS boost, AMD is a *viable option.*

  • When it comes to SAM, it needs to be enabled at the software level for it to be used to capacity, and when it does, it probably won't affect FPS much still, but, it will reduce load times by quite a bit. *By at software level, I mean that games need to be coded to take advantage of the newly available bandwidth.

I'm hoping I can get an rx 6800 tomorrow which is about 800 dollars here. Between the two, I like the 16gb vram on the RX 6800 and I don't care all that much about the other features.

  • Using DLSS is effective decreasing your game screen size then stretching it to fit the current resolution. Say you have a 1440p resolution it might render it in 1080p and scale it back to 1440p. You'll loose finer details doing so. So hell yes it is cheating. It isn't actually rendering in the resolution it is being compared in it is just up-scaling. I hope AMD never does an equivalent to DLSS because stupid. If you are going to use DLSS you might as well just set the resolution to the lower scaled image because apparently that is what will satisfy you anyways.

    Diconica BastionDiconica Bastion7 dögum síðan
    • Mate you clearly have no idea about what DLSS is. It’s not just ordinary upscaling, it’s actually extremely sophisticated. Distant objects like tree branches, power lines, and text is actually looing better vs native resolution even with 2x resolution scaling (performance mode).
