  1. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    AMD needs to do something to grow, increasing prices and not dramatically the number of chips, hitting a wall so to speak will not go well over time. So yes, Samsung I would think could/should be used on some skews to increase supply.
  2. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    Intel is very serious, except in this case 2025 does not help much now https://time.com/6140476/intel-building-factory-ohio/
  3. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    Maybe Intel can out blood AMD and Nvidia. AMD with TSMC and Nvidia with Samsung at this point is not even coming close to satisfying the demand and also pissing many folks off. Still doubtful TSMC will do much better with Intel.
  4. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    lol, yep, another TSMC product waiting in line. I would expect Intel to concentrate on OEM builds for ARC first while retail gets the scraps. They have a number of upcoming versions, if any will be on Intel process besides the iGPU versions I do not know. I would hope Intel can take control of...
  5. Intel Core i7-12700K vs AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Performance Review

    Great review, kudo's for MSI providing a good test sample. I would say it would be definitely Intel build if building new at this time, the 12700K smashes the 5800x into oblivion on this review and is very nice seeing Intel getting serious with a great comeback from where they were at. As for...
  6. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    And there are no where to be found, fail of all fails. The cheapest, easiest stripped down card ever produced for this generation and AMD cannot make them or AIBs in sufficient numbers for the desperate of desparates of the PC gamers, strapped for some kind of solution. AMD cannot manufacture or...
  7. Godfall RX 6900 XT vs RTX 3090 FSR Ray Tracing Performance

    Exactly implied and true. DXR 1 games will not effectively use the Infinity Cache while DXR 1.1 games if program to use the RNDA2 hardware can.
  8. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    Ethereum is memory bandwidth sensitive, the 6500XT measly 64bit memory bus probably makes it a worthless mining even at 8gb onboard memory. The 6500XT I would say has no reason to exist, it does everything poorly.
  9. Godfall RX 6900 XT vs RTX 3090 FSR Ray Tracing Performance

    You expect an independent tester to rewrite code to see if it actually makes a difference? Not likely. Developers would be putting up a fuss if what AMD is promoting or Nvidia makes zero difference. The performance difference using RT between Nvidia and AMD is closer with newer games more of...
  10. Godfall RX 6900 XT vs RTX 3090 FSR Ray Tracing Performance

    Watch whole video, if Lazy, 5 min on should give relevant detail dealing with AMD hardware: (Have to watch on YouTube) If you want even a dryer version again straight from AMD mouth, how programming particularly for a given hardware base here you go: Note, Nvidia also gives tools, best...
  11. Godfall RX 6900 XT vs RTX 3090 FSR Ray Tracing Performance

    For RT, there is also a lot of compute operations where Nvidia double FP32 per cuda core gives a great benefit if fed. AMD advantage is if DXR 1.1 is used and Infinity Cache is effectively used, as in multiple shaders within a single shader keeping instructions/assets local in cache for compute...
  12. GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G Review

    Very disappointing overall on the whole combination. At $200 MSRP, if even readily available for that price, with 1080p medium to low settings to make usable for current generation games does not look like a card that will stand the test of time in the end. For me, this is the worst GPU for this...
  13. Far Cry 6 Video Card Feature Performance Review

    Brent, Far Cry 6 dynamically loads in hi res textures, with lower vram cards it will mix high and low res textures. This was observed and shown on YouTube where the 3080 would not load in the hi res textures. I noticed it even on the 3080Ti vs the 6900XT. I haven't played in a couple of weeks so...
  14. Godfall RX 6900 XT vs RTX 3090 FSR Ray Tracing Performance

    Excellent take, also very surprising on 6900XT RT performance. I think as newer games with RT come out, the disparity for AMD and Nvidia on performance will drift closer together. Still I think Nvidia will remain on top due to larger bandwidth memory as well as more compute units. AMD speed...
  15. ASUS RTX 3070 TUF GAMING OC Video Card Review

    Metro Exodus chart 1440p appears to be different than the description, having the 6700 on top vice the 3070. These games, or games selected in general run better with Nvidia Hardware. If doing canned benchmarks, more variety I would expect. AMD RT is much better when the game is developed...
  16. MSI SPATIUM M470 1TB PCIe 4.0 Gen4 NVMe SSD Review

    Nice review. May pick up one or two of these, 2TB version. I've been rather happy with MSI in general, two motherboards working flawlessly, great quality in general. Another thing I am liking about MSI is they will admit on making a mistake and actively correctly it or redo the product.
  17. Overclocking AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT

    Brent, I like how you incorporate DLSS and FSR in your graphs. Makes it very clear the performance option of using those technologies at that resolution for games that support them. RT is looking good for AMD on titles that were more developed with AMD in mind. I would say the more likely...
  18. BIOSTAR Z590I VALKYRIE Motherboard Review

    I have a B550 Biostar board with a 3900x, no issues and one of the few board I've ever owned that has zero problems going to sleep and back. Now the VRMs on that board I would say is shaky but I am not OCing. With two (one super cheap and the other kinda cheap) Biostar boards, they purred with...
  19. Used/mined GPUs lose 10% / yr ?

    My 5700XT from the factory had limited memory OCing, 103% and she was stable but that was it. After mining for about 5 months (not really that much for a mining card) anything over stock has issues. To me it degraded some. The Vega's (3x) HBM have held up well with probably over 1.5 year (24/7...
  20. EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card Review

    Well EVGA is probably my favorite AIB, not because they don't make some mistakes, always have the best card but they have by far from my experience the best service out there. Their forums are actually useful and full of tricks, OCing and so on. Plus EVGA does not mind you installing coolers...
