7900XTX looks faster than my RTX 3090 Ti, I plan on upgrading on Dec 13,2022.
Pre-Ordered EK block this morning, expected delivery is Dec 21,2022.
Hopefully I can order a reference card when they drop on Dec 13,2022,.. I don't want to compete with Bots, Scalpers for this upgrade.
Congrats on getting the card! (also how did you get it for 249?)
Hopefully it does sell better than the RTX 4090. I have looked into the adapter problem and while the evidence suggests it doesn't effect every card it still raises some red flags for me. I personally feel that card just draws way too much power. Having all that power run through an adapter is probably safe from a technical stand point but it would be my worst nightmare to wake up to a burnt up PC and a bunch of residue inside my PC from the adapter burning up.
I was having some issues with my 6900xt so I swapped it with a 4090FE and the cable looks quite well made (still careful plugging it in). From what they are saying now is that they have 2 manufacturers for the cable and it only seems to be affecting one. So far no issues for me, fingers crossed. The 7900xtx will be going in my new AM5 build after xmas. Looking forward to seeing the benchmarks.
I watched most of the presentation as well. It was impressive... performance per watt... performance per dollar.. in comparison to what the green team has to offer. Looking great AMD!!
I am so stoked for the release. I may not be able to buy one, but it is nice to see AMD competing the way they are.
Thing is, I kind of expected AMD to talk about new pricing for 7000-series CPU's. They don't sell well and unless prices drop remarkably, I don't think it will change. With current pricing, while I would like to get an AMD system again... It is starting to look bad. I'm still waiting, but can't wait forever.
This will be my first complete AMD system, I have been running Intel & Nvidia for years.
Current system is Asus Crosshair X670E Gene, AMD Ryzen 9 7950X,.. https://imgur.com/x8IIDK0
I plan on upgrading graphics card on Dec 13 to AMD 7900XTX, EK block.
Sorry for image quality, I'm having hard time uploading photo's or screen-shots,.. needed to copy and paste image. Seems all my photo's are too large to upload, will retry later.
You do realize drivers are tested before release? They do work in vast majority of machines and software, but as PC computers are not like consoles or Macs, where you only have a very limited amount of hardware configurations, problems do exist if you are unlucky and try to run a software or have a hardware configuration which is somehow incompatibe with existing drivers. All brands have these issues. Also it isn't always the case of "why is Windows so unstable piece of...." or "why can't get this product or driver to work", but reason can also be broken hardware, poor installation and many other factors.
As someone who owns two machines, one Nvidia and one AMD, my Nvidia one has had more stability issues. I am aware some people have configurations that do not work well with some AMD drivers, but to say Nvidia has less problems is just not accurate. Nvidia in my experience has the same problems. Certain hardware combinations just result in instability. While it would be nice to see both of them work on drivers, I have had significantly better experiences with AMD. I guess I am just a sample size of one, but most of the issues people have posted, were of configurations with bad hardware, poorly optimized games, and software incompatibilities.
This a joke post or nah?
If your gonna slander AMD 3 times on one post, you might be on the wrong form. (your opinion matters, but just don't slander them 3 times
Yes, but you don't have to say it 3 different ways
