    AMD FSR 2.0 Quality & Performance

    There is no such thing as AI denoising used in any game afaik, where did you read this?

    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D

    Please, can you test games with RT at 720p? It's maddening how ignored this test scenario is but in fact it's the most relevant one given how much of a beating RT puts on CPUs, and it's in fact settings you'd use. It's for me the only reason I need more CPU power. :(

    50 Games Tested: GeForce RTX 3080 vs. Radeon RX 6800 XT

    Great work W1zzard! Thanks a lot for including Greedfall & The Surge 2, I love those games and went 6800 instead of 3070 precisely because 8 GB is not enough in the former and the extra raster power is great in the latter.

    ASUS Radeon RX 6600 XT STRIX OC

    People were crying their sad little hearts out about MSRP but I'm looking at real prices and a 6600 XT is still 30% cheaper than a 3060. Mining efficiency is also insane. This card is an absolute BANGER atm! Get your order in while you can, this won't last. :rockout:

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT Nitro+

    Damn, it turns out the reference AMD was the ideal price/perf model. :D

    AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

    This isn't quite accurate. Yes, you can enable it as you develop and try it out but if you want to ship a game with it then you need Nvidia's explicit blessing. That's why even though it's easy to implement you don't see it get widespread adoption. It's the same for every other RTX/Gameworks...

    AMD Radeon RX 6800

    Funny at 3070 better price/performance. Meanwhile in the real world retailers everywhere are selling it for way more than MSRP if it's ever even in stock. Let's stop these foolish comparisons when product doesn't exist in stock! How long has been Ampere out and they still can't produce cards...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    Yes, got myself a month of U+ and been going through WD:L first and now AC:V. I love AC more than WD by far but there's some obvious areas where WD is much much more advanced than AC which is struggling very much particularly with far off LODs (in fact, still well below standards established at...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    I was perhaps too incensed when I replied because it seemed like it was more pushed as fact than just opinion. If it's just you like how ACV looks better than WDL that's fine. This is a very respected site so I like when it's accurately factual, so when it comes to rendering technology it's a...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    I hope this is satire and not such a fundamental ignorance of rendering tech for the site owner. Or are we doing "the best graphics are whatever my favourite art style is" thing? Valhalla can't even properly blend in SSR for water ffs, to say nothing of the much lower texture quality compared...

    Watch Dogs Legion Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    CPU performance data in the benchmark is 100% useless. Gotta be in the world to see anything useful.

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC

    @W1zzard Hey, I know you used to test The Surge 2 but haven't anymore, any chance you could jump in game and peek at the fps for a 3080? Was really curious about this game in particular and no one else tests it, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :love:
