Man, I really hope they knock it out of the park with this one. My one disappointment with my 6900XT is that it just doesn't happen to play that nice with DCS World, which happens to be the one game I play the most. For whatever reason, DCS just likes nvidia hardware better.

Heh, "And there's no need for a new power adapter." #shotsfired.

People have been selling 4k for years as the future and now it's actually catching up now. So, what's your point?
That it's an absolutely useless point for this and the next generation.

It's almost the exact same setup as last gen, 6900 XT at $1k and 3090 at $1500. I don't find this particularly interesting.
4080 16 GB needs a price cut, though.

We'll they didn't even try and show some "AMD" benchmarks. I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing.
Pricing is right... and the old gamer in me feels wrong saying 1k for a flagship sounds good. Guess now we wait for real benchmarks... and leaked ones. lol

I'm glad for additional RT performance, but AMD is only saying 1.7x RT performance, vs Nvidia which did around 2.5x RT on their already faster RT core in Ampere.

AMD is falling behind on RT.
1.7x RT performance puts their new flagship card about on par with a 3070. This pace of RT gap growth could take AMD entirely out of the market when the 50-series launches in 2024. New game development is moving pretty heavily towards RT. It's like AMD saw a moving target and decided to aim behind it.

I mean, lets be honest I dont think it will be as fast as the 4090. But AMD didnt make this a 450w card. I mean its 100w less and $600 cheaper....

Makes me wonder if they will let AIB's do whatever they want and make power hungry cards with faster memory etc.

AMD is doing AMD and keeping it within existing / close to existing physical space and power budgets and keeping the price down. This is what they're famous for, meanwhile they get 'close' to the same performance.

AMD Gonna AMD

Nvidia went whole hog with power, space, etc. - This has obvious tradeoffs.

I thought I heard 1.7x Raster and 1.6x RT. Not that it is that much different.

der8auer has shown the 4090 at 350w has 95% performance compared to 450w. That would make it still faster than the new AMD cards at same power requirements. NV really knocked it out of the park with the 4090.
