Reaping the benefits of recently adding a GPU to my home server- has allowed the whole family to play Sea of Thieves (1 Xbox + 2 Laptops + PC).  Also happy to see the 6750 cope with native 4K@60 in Assassin's Creed Origins.

Currently playing WoWS and War Thunder on an X570MB with Ryzen 5 5600X/Radeon RX 6600XT. The RX 6900XT would be a sweet upgrade. Fingers crossed.

Hi,

 

Been away for a while after some med issues.  Getting back into things.  Sure could use a new Vid card.  Thanks for this opportunity. 

It’s Friday and the weekend is coming up.

Would be nice to win that nice graphic card even fr my older FX8350 setup. (I am a Win 10/11 hater.)

 

@bobpi-- did you know that the AMD B450 chipset has windows 7 drivers available from many vendors? I thought Ryzen was all WIN 10 (and now win 11) only, but MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte all three have WIN 7 drivers for B450.... I'm looking at doing a Ryzen/Radeon Build for another WIN 7 devotee (currently on FX 8320/ RX 580)! Look into it!!👊

I am not so much a Win 7 devotee as a person living with a limited data satellite connection and a USAF veteran concerned about privacy and security. Plus, the rest of the changes for the worst in 10/11.

I do wonder what I am missing as far as good innovations in Direct X and other things, but I mainly watch anime and movies and play Minecraft so I am probably not affected much....

What CPU families does B450 limit a builder to?

 

from this ASUS support page it supports the Athlon 200 series, and Ryzens from 1000 through 5000!

In case it wasn't obvious from prior notes, this board supports Windows 7, if you still have windows 7 machines:

Windows 7 Drivers for B450 chipset (ASUS PRIME-B450M-A) 

 Hmm. tech specs -- Windows 7 64 supports only up to 1st and 2nd gen Ryzen chips down in the bottom of the footnotes

I'll have to dig further here..

All roads lead back to AMD 

so, according to the AMD B450 chipset driver support page -- it agrees with the ASUS footnote: the B450 chipset supports 1st and 2nd gen AMD processors only for windows 7, but supports all ryzen and Athlon 200 series under windows 10.

so, to upgrade windows 7 boxes to ryzen, you have to find a 1st or 2nd gen processor, and probably the B450 chipset (perhaps the A320 chipset would also support it) for an upgrade path.

@bobpi-- hope this helps... I'm also interested in this upgrade path, so it's worth my time to research and share!

 

As for Radeon support, the 21-5-2 Radeon driver will support the RX 6900XT in this giveaway under WI... 

but in all likelyhood, I'd probably push my older RX5600 to the WIN 7 box, and use the RX6900 with a WIN 10 box.

Still a fantastic hand-me-down upgrade!

Probably pair the Halo Infinite 6950xt with a 5800x3D

Right now I would pair it with my watercooled 3900x!

anyone who's interested in win 7 + Ryzen -- find my detailed post (don' t know how to link it!) ... the win 7 driver support only goes to 1st/2nd gen ryzen chips... so you can't go all in 5950x and windows 7 😞

Holy Hot Halo Hardware Batman!!  

Current favorite AMD (or AMD based) component that I am personally using daily is STILL my X570S Aorus Master!!  The X570(S) platform is a great base allowing MoBo manufacturers to really swing for the fences with offerings that please nearly all gamers and/or power users.  

As for gaming, I am currently playing a game that caught my eye with a BIG surprise and is now growing EVERY day.   Its called "Stop coveting the Red Team June Sweepstakes 6900 XT Halo Infinite GPU FiL!!"  Don't bother looking for it on Steam or Epic but if you are reading this post I have a feeling you might be playing it too!! 😉   I am also having fun playing Borderlands 3 and am looking forward to trying out the WW3 beta played on AFKidsGaming last Wed!!   

Thanks AMD & good luck to all!!

I have 2 x570 platforms that could use it. 
3900x/Radeon VII and 5900x/RX 6800.

I have the same system......an upgrade would charge my games with speed and clarity. AMD would Rule!

Hi from AFKidsGaming!!!!!!!!

Hello, I would like to throw my hat into the ring for this one.  I will build an entirely new system based around this card if I win!  I will share updates and pics if I do.

Don't know if I have registered yet, at 73 that happens, so now I will register again.

I have always been an AMD fan and supporter and I have been building computers since the late 1980's.  I have never owned an Nvidia GPU or an Intel CPU.  Over the years you see a lot of test data showing this one outperforming the opposition.  As a statistician and computer programmer, all of these tests are skewed.  Why because the manufacturers develop the testing software for their products.  Yes, I've heard the software developers of the the testing software.  Ask yourself; who funded the development?  Then look at the results of the test and say; Oh that's why it outperforms the competition.  It's the same results for 99% of the data that you read.  "Statistics don't lie, but liars use statics."

Have fun gamming, regardless of the products you have in your machine!

Winning this would mean finally finishing my 10-year-old son's PC that he wants for his birthday. He could start his Youtube channel to help other autistic kids that was to show the world that they can be awesome just like anyone can.

I love AMD CPUs, the video cards look really nice. I do not discriminate, I would take a new AMD CPU or GPU. Maybe not AMD branded Vegemite, but I digress.

For those that don't follow sales of PC tech like I do just a heads up. This is a fantastic video card that is being given away but if you don't win don't let it get you down. Amazon prime days are July 11th and 12th and there will be massive sales of video cards and all PC tech on all major online retailers to follow suit with Amazon. Each year there was a 20-40% drop in prices each year during this time before the Crypto insanity occurred. So, if you haven't bought anything yet plan accordingly because after the 13th the prices will generally go back up again until AMD drops their new lineup later this year.

Thanks for the info!
