I'm currently using the Radeon RX 7900XTX. Since diagnosing a power supply issue it's been great for any game I've tried on it. That being said I'm one of probably many suffering from the high power draw issue on my high refresh rate monitor. It's a known issue it's been a known issue since launch and every time I see a new driver update I quickly check to see if there's been a fix. Needless to say it's really disappointing to see support for some game and no fixes to known issues. I really feel like there needs to be a shift in the priorities of the driver team.
The CPU that comes to mind would be Ryzen 7 1800X. It was an affordable option that proved that AMD still had a place in the CPU market. It had comparable performance to Intel's best model at the time for only half the cost. This was an impressive piece of hardware for its time.
I have a Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics in my non-gaming rig and it has been great to use while working on daily tasks such as mail, writing, browsing, watching video, editing, and spreadsheets. The versatility and efficiency of the compute combined with graphics are great for these purposes!
Ever since I traded my Intel 7700k setup straight across for a Ryzen 7 1700 on a B350 motherboard .. I haven't looked back.
I've ran the following CPUs/GPUs in my wife's, daughter's and my server and my main rig over the years:
1700, 2200g x2, 2700x, 3400g, 3600, 3600xt, 3700x x2, 3800xt, 3900x, 5600x, 5800x, 5900x x2, 7600, 7950x
I can't remember all the ATi GPU's I've ran like the 9800 Pro etc .. and a couple R9 270x's .. BUTT!!
RX 570 8GB, RX 580 4GB, RX 5700XT x2, RX 6700XT, RX 6800, RX 7900XT
I've been extremely happy with my AMD (ATi) products over the years .. I'm almost to fanboy status .. not quite .. but almost 😏
i upgraded my husbands computer from a 6600k to a 3800x last year and hes been loving it with no complaints at all. if only i could get him off that gtx 1070 though....
As much as I want some of that stuff, the shirts/hoodies won't fit. If they were in... say 4 or 5XLT for a big, long-bodied gorilla like me I'd be all over it like a fat kid* on a Smartie. And not those chalky things you Americans call Smarties. I'm talking about the Canadian ones. The candy coated chocolate!
*I'm a fat guy, I'm allowed to make fat jokes.
My AMD shirts that I have won in the past are a bit worse for wear and that AMD hoodie is looking mighty sharp!
Zip up hoodies > pull over hoodies.
Although any hoodie is better than no hoodie.
Who I gotta petition to get big boy sizes? I'd love to wear some of the AMD fits, but everything only comes in toddler sizes! 😭😆
But I'm using the 6800 XT in my main rig and the 6700 XT in my living room rig. Love both of the GPUs and with my current experiences, might be curtains for me going back to Nvidia. I've been impressed with AMD's GUI in the Adrenaline software. I've been able to play all my games over 100 FPS. Especially Apex Legends. Days Gone has been a treat, too!
It's a new month and a new day, along with a great giveaway! Thanks, AMD and Red Team! I have a Ryzen 9 7900X for a build soon enough. I'll be getting an AMD GPU for it next for the perfect match. Enjoy Summer, everyone!
Really pleased with my Ryzen 5 5600 for the past 2 months. Not one single hiccup.
Still waiting to upgrade my Radeon RX 480. Can't justify the cost for my needs just yet. For now I'm all good.
I have a RX 6400, I like it. Can play new games on it. My pc's not a super computer, but, I am happy with my recent upgrades. The new 5600 I got pairs nicely. Played Outriders, and it was first time ever my pc was auto set to highest setting in a game. I was sitting there holding back tears of joy. 😂
I have a MSI Radeon 5700 RX that I used in any of my portable "rigs" (ie: GPD Win 4 or my Lenovo Y720) I currently use it in a Razer Core Thunderbolt 3 enclosure. Due to the mature AMD Drivers it's been plug and play which is amazing.
I'm thinking about the computer I will build in 2023. Ideas are swirling around in my head. If I can keep my balance, something might come out of this.
Meanwhile, I've built many AMD computers in the past and I will continue to do so in the future. I'm typing this on an AMD 3900X CPU that's still in my main computer.
I've had amd products for decades. I bought a 6900xt for computer. It's a good gpu and have no issues gaming. I play cyberpunk and metro Exodus with no issues. I do think I want to upgrade soon. I've tried every sweepstake for maybe two years or more. I think I'm due!
I have a Power Cooler Devil Daddy AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT video card that is in my latest build.
I turned the graphics up until I could smell fire and brimstone, and I have not had a single problem so far.
I not so long ago in the near past I was gifted a gaming rig. Said rig is loaded with everything AMD, too many components to choose just one. But if I had to choose I'd say my Ryzen 9 processor is superb.
