i am a 47 years old school guy and just saw Linus review about AMD 6k series and... What a biased payed Nvidia review 😳!! Not a fanboy of anyone... ATM I have 3 desktops at home, mine (RTX 2080 ti) and my daughter´s (GTX 970) « and my son´s (RX 6800) and i was blown away with the biased review from Linus!! The 6k amd series trade punches with nvidia 3k series at raw performance, btw 6800xt is even better at raw Fps than 3080 and The 6800 non xt is clearly better than the 3070 at raw FPS! So if you want Ray tracing yes go with nvidia if not, there’s not much to argue, you should go with AMD, if you can find one available at MSRP... Linus conclusion that he cannot recommend buying a AMD 6k series card shows how biased this review was!

You know when nvidia is embarrassed when they're rushing to get a new card out to 1 up amd (3080 ti). They need to replace it before people start to catch one and say "i paid more money for only 10gb?"
DeadlyVenom Vor 13 Tage
Performance of 6800XT does not justify the price. Costs more than a 3080 which is a superior card.

sorry but most of us arent real content creators at all let alone making a living off it so the nvidia features dont really matter to me as long as the gpu gives me the best possible performance and visual sharpness and clarity i can get then im good with whoever has the better results in those, not who makes a cool app to change my camera or mess with my background, i mean logitech has been changing the background for years and they arent getting a special shout out.....

Hey nvidea, this one is for you and Linus and anyone burned by bullshit. So here is logic. So you don't cater to miners. Ok So why don't you have a card dedicated to miners? Optimized for them so they get exactly what they want and they stay in thier own fucking lane? #hard shit

The thing is, this review honestly should be more positive. This is the first time AMD's had a comparable card in years, that alone means something.. and it means that if this review was in a more positive light.. People would go out and buy from them. Leading to next year being even better. I'm sick of this Nvidia = da best cuz most features. Lets be real here, the only one that matters is DLSS. And most games don't even have support for it. Very few people are buying cards to render anyways. It's a gaming card, does it produce good fps? Then yes, recommend it. Stop overthinking it.

To my knowledge, AMD does not have an AI team in both hardware or software. Their game performance might exceed NVIDIA someday but their AI capacity is still so far behind and seem like they can't reduce the price to compete either. It is still a long way for AMD to be comparable with NVIDIA to be honest.

Wow Linus, agree with other comment below, AMD did not disappoint, only thing you do is bash the card, and about that kinda like DLSS resolution, here take a good look at a friendly reviewer, take good notes here, AMD is right, Native resolution, even with their super resolution they worked on, not gonna use it... Ray Tracing yeah ok eventually, but still not perfected, and surely not super needed yet... Rasterization still does a superb job, yes Ray tracing WILL be better no dought... Will still buy both company a card anyway, when i can get my hand on one lol Kinda like maybe something like 8K "DLSS" let's play with fake resolutions now, there is not just fake news, there is fake resolution also today... loll Gamers Nexus video:

Hey! Love you channel. I am kinda stuck with something. I need a little help. Do you know how to connect a RX 6800 XT to a Razer Core X? :) I would really appreciate any help that you may be able to provide. The Razer Core X that I use has two 8-pin connectors. Whereas the Asrock Taichi RX6800XT that I got has three 8-pin connectors.
Thomasdk1405 Vor Monat
Biased towards the green color ? DLSS - clever but zoom in and.... Nvidia often has jumping fps than amd - more constant here. Rayreacing is a joke - all over where I need to compare off vs on Im having hard times seeing the difference - other than the huge impact in fps. Ps5 and new xbox is based on amd hw meaning developers will aim for this and take that into account. Glad other reviewers like HW unboxed and others think differently. Nvidia has sucked out our money for way too long - time to support team red this time. Btw I have gtx 1080 now !

If i should switch to amd's 6800xt 50$ cheaper is far from enough when i see how much better the 3080 is with rtx on, plus the dlls second gen. And the 6800 only 70$ less than the xt, totaly stupid, it should be priced as the 3070 or less. Ofc just my opinion😊😊
