10-4 on those graphite thermal pads, use them on 3 of my computers - no more cleanups, pulling CPU out of socket etc. Performance wise I think I lost about 1c if that much.Yeah, those are heat pipes (5, flat) extending from the main heatsink mass.
Pretty cool, looking forward to the review.
You got some balls pulling it apart before the benchies are done
That TIM, probably similar to those reusable CPU pads (search for graphite thermal pad on Amazon), but those on the radeon looked slightly 'sticky'. Used one of those from amazon on the last pc I built for someone and they worked great.
Well, our review sample got conveniently sent to the wrong state....so we did not even have a card till Friday, which was with Brent. AMD was nice enough to ship another here to me in Texas to do the full breakdown. You see the Saturday delivery stickers on the box?You got some balls pulling it apart before the benchies are done
not really, probably because it seems he handles it with honest care , … also thoughtful to show ounces and grams, great video !Did anyone else feels stressed watching Kyle pull apart that pretty new card?
My thoughts on these are that you would rather see the hardware instead of the person talking about it. I did buy that camera with close up 4K shots in mind. And yeah, if you have a large 4K screen, it is nice to see things with. I see a lot of things in the video when editing that are not apparent while I am working on the test bench.not really, probably because it seems he handles it with honest care , … also thoughtful to show ounces and grams, great video !
I like the visual style of the card, clean and very nice ! (or was that because of the video equipment/skills)
Your documentary filmmaker game is getting better.
It's definitely a nice looking card. Given the price, I hope it can at least manage somewhere between a 2070 and a 2080 in terms of performance. Nvidia nearly doubled the price of graphics cards this generation, so it should at least be easier for AMD to make a case for this on value grounds.
Edit: Maybe not quite doubled, but it sure feels like the price increased a lot from the 10 series.
Vega 56 (and 64s as well?) have very similarly “empty” PCBs. Like Kyle said in the video, without all the memory being placed around the die the VRMs don’t have to be crammed all the way at the far end.
