    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT Nitro+

    Based on these pricing, I can predict the 6900XT would be well over $1000. AMD's reference card priced at $999, good luck finding one at $999. Most of those AIB 6900XT gonna be near 3090FE price for sure.

    Same as 3090FE, but nobody can find them at MSRP nowadays

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT Nitro+

    I feel personally insulted lol Yeah FuryX was a POS GPU that is the step middle child neither RTG nor AMD cared for. It was rather Fine Vinegar as it performed pretty horrible versus 980Ti in new titles.

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT Nitro+

    $770 ehhh no. At this premium price I would want all the features, like playable RTX. $649~$699 it is fine. At this price might as well just get 3080

    Yeah even pressure is important. The 2080Ti i gave away was mounted with Alphacool AIO. Even they recommended using default backplate with the thermal pads intact

    @lynx29 i would stick with the pad. You worry too much about others opinion. You made a good decision just stick with it. When I took my 2080Ti apart the metal backplate had loads of thermal pads for the components. It should help. Congrats on the card. Now go enjoy your awesome new rig!!

    Mapping takes with a lot of time, and revision. You have to map it, play it, check your physical movements and revise. So electric feel it is for you then!

    Presenting Ray Tracing data in this way might be easier for people to follow. Takes tsv or csv as input, just a simple R script.
