I hear ya, but the RTX 4000 aren't exactly famous for being good value for money.
True, but remember that, at launch, the 7900xt made almost no sense. The 7900xtx made good sense, and it sold decently, but when you can get 6950xts for $500 its no small wonder that the 7000 series isnt selling out. Especially as there is still no 7700 or 7800 series card. The majority of buyers are not in the $1000 camp, or even close.

Looks like Lovelace GPUs met even more ill fate than Turing. Pascal was amazing, no cap. Ampere was too, if you were lucky to get one without being a scalpers dinner.

why is there no arc?

i bought 4 weeks ago an Arc 750 for 250€ but the user wont change it against a garbage RX 7600 for 269€ which is in raster 15% ahead but on low RT Effects behind.
On High RT they are similar on 30 FPS.

He think a third player will be great against AMD and NVIDIA Duopoly.


Atm. several Shops sell the A750 for about 230€ against a Garbage 7600 for 269€

I hear some whispers from my main Shop intel will be lower the price of the A770 16GB to 299€, theres no reason for 8GB 7600 or 8GB 4060 in future.

This poll is pretty unfair to anyone with an Arc video card (I say that as someone who doesn't own an Arc card).

Maybe it should've been more like this:

- GeForce RTX 4000
- Radeon RX 7000
- GeForce RTX 3000
- Radeon RX 6000
- GeForce 2000 and older
- Radeon RX 5000 and older
- Arc A

I don't really get why having 4 separate gens of GeForce but only 3 gens of Radeon makes sense when there could've been 3, 3 and 1 Intel gen to include everyone. It would also be interesting to see how many people went with Team Blue over Red or Green.

It's not like the polls provide any useful data anyway. It's all garbage data with no vetting process.

Hopefully nobody actually thinks that all 6.7k people who voted on this previous poll own an RX7900 card and voted with complete honesty.

I've got a 3080 Ti FE. I plan on using it until it can't play whatever the newest Battlefield is reliably (so probably 5 years?).

It would be cool to have VRAM vote now. :)
Or at what resolution are you playing in 2023, including some non standard ultra wide resolutions.

Still rocking along with my MSI Aero OC 1080Ti that I picked up Open-Box back in '17 and snagged a EK FC block for it. Still does well at 1440p even in newer titles, but mainly play Destiny 2 the most. So far haven't jumped from my Pascal card since the value/performance/longevity isn't there as I refuse to pay over $600 for a new card that would be the 1080Ti equivalent at this time.

i've switched gpu's quite often since i buy and sell pc stuff, from gtx 1650S to an rtx 2060 then a rx 5700 xt. and now an rx 6600, i think i'll be sticking to this one for a while due to this card being very power efficient especially when undervolted

This poll tells me that despite the best data we otherwise have, AMD Radeon users are massively over-represented in these forums relative to global market share, which makes sense - in fact it makes sense for a lot of online forums / platforms of tech heads, enthusiasts etc.

True, AMD is for those that enjoy troubleshooting and tinkering with BIOS releases.

My 980ti has been running perfect but it's about time to upgrade, best GPU I've ever bought. Does 4k, lots of compromises but it can do it. I usually drive it at 1440p and no problems. Hoping if that I splurge on a 4090 now, I can get years out of it. I've had 980ti since late 2014, like 8-9 years.
