Now you understand nvidia's fake paper launch. AMD is moving perf/dollar ahead. The RX 6800 is half the price of the 2080 ti but has 5GB more VRAM and is 18 percent faster on average over those games. You can't say "wowee look how good the 3080 is vs the 2080 ti" then same "AMD didn't improve perf/dollar vs the 3070" without coming off as a tool.
Did you just put words into my mouth and
call me a tool and in a single sentence? That's how I read it, anyway.
Where did I say "wowee look how good the 3080 is vs the 2080 ti"?
I've never said that.
As for "AMD didn't improve performance/$ vs the 3070", they haven't. AMD directly compared the 6800 at $579 to the 2080Ti and it was a damn close match. Reviewers (yesterday) proved that the $499 3070 is also a damn close match, so AMD's $579 card is performing like Nvidia's $499 card.
More to the point though, I didn't even compare to Nvidia at all - I specifically said "not moving the performance/$ forward for anyone against their own
product stack". We're talking 2080Ti performance for $579 compared to the previous best AMD had to offer, the 5700XT at $399
So, $579 is 45% more expensive than $399, and here's how much faster that extra 45% cost is....
Yeah, AMD's best value 6000-series card has WORSE
performance/$ than their current 5000-series card.
