    AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

    Just retesting one game in open case with good ventilation would be needed to see if we're dealing with thermal throttling. Not a lot of work.

    Please retest it. There is something wrong. Anandtech also has RX 5700XT exchanging blows with RTX 2070 SUPER/GTX 1080TI. Super is still faster but by much smaller margin. Thermal throttling on your sample maybe?

    AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

    Why such a big difference between guru3d review of RX 5700 XT and TechPowerUp? Driver issues? RX 5700 XT is trading blows with GTX 1080TI/2070Super in their test: https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_radeon_rx_5700_and_5700_xt_review,15.html

    Uf, prices in EU are a bit higher (€369/419 ->$417/473 MindFactory). I hope it's just temporary, otherwise I see no reason to buy Navi.

    AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

    I'll wait for price adjustment to $349 and buy AIB version then. God damn it AMD can't you deliver good drivers and decent cooling solution at release? 92 (110)C temp and 43 dBA on $400 GPU, c'mon AMD are you serious? So little added effort is needed for this GPU to get praising reviews instead...

    AMD Radeon RX 5700

    Was 36 watts multi-monitor power draw tested with 2 or more monitors? would it draw the same 36W or more power when 5-6 monitors are connected? I'm not worried about power consumption per se, but the fan noise that comes with GPU being warmer. Thanks.

    Confirmed: AMD to Cut RX 5700-series Prices at Launch

    Look at the size of the die and make silicon calculation. Even doubling the cost of 251 mm2 die gives $194 production costs and I highly doubt 7nm production costs are double. You don't have to be a genius to see AMD is rising margins over Polaris just like NVidia did with RTX. It's 2008 all...

    Confirmed: AMD to Cut RX 5700-series Prices at Launch

    Navi should cost $299/349/399 and even these prices are pushing profit margin higher than Polaris. At $349/399/349 I still stand behind my words. Super/Navi are still prefixed feel good being f...ed in ass RIP-OFFs!

    AMD to Slash Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Series Prices Ahead of Launch: $399 & $349

    The only decent buy right now are RX570/580 for 1080p and Vega 56 for 1440p gaming (priced at $120/150 and $260). 2-3 years old GPUs still ruling price/performance chart. Current gaming dGPU market is beyond F...ED UP.

    AMD to Slash Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Series Prices Ahead of Launch: $399 & $349

    It's only normal in the absence of antitrust laws in US. Look what happened to DDR and SSD prices when China intervened. The same should happen in US but it won't because US legislative and executive branch have no cojones to stand against corporate donor class interests.

    AMD to Slash Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Series Prices Ahead of Launch: $399 & $349

    RTX 2060 = GTX 1060 3GB $350 from $200 RTX 2060S = GTX 1060 6GB $400 from $250 RX 5700 = RX570 $350 from $200 RX 5700XT = RX580 $400 from $250 RX 5700XT/SE = RX590 $450 from $290 You see the the price fixing pattern here? A total...

    AMD to Slash Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Series Prices Ahead of Launch: $399 & $349

    What is AMD thinking offering us +$350 GPUs with blowers in 2019? If GPU doesn't have semi passive fan mode, I wouldn't get it even if it free.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition

    I agree 100 %. The best thing about Super release is that we'll be able to buy 2nd hand GTX 1080TI sub €400 price tag. Finally some serious affordable speed for us common peasants :)

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition

    NVidia 2070S turned out to be the best of the Turing bunch. It makes 2080 and Radeon VII DOA. GTX 1080TI performance with ray tracing for $500 is not bad value. AMD looks pretty silly right now. I expect some drastic price drops weeks after lunch or Navi will be DOA. I still think Nvidia is...
