    Two new Radeons compliment AMD’s simultaneous 3rd-gen Ryzen launch, but do they have the performance it takes to keep up with Nvidia’s RTX SUPER cards, or are they just hot air?

      I just bought a GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5700 XT with a partner cooler.

      Goodbye thermal throttling. 👌😁👋

        Looking at the design of RDNA, makes me hope AMD's next architecture is variable and can go from 1 to 4 (or more) batches per cycle depending on the workload. Because nVidia carries a majority of the games optimized for their products with their "GameWorks partnership", AMD has to deal with unoptimized games from nVidia friendly gaming companies.

                      Said you lost most small details on the recording. When your watching it real time are those details still there? Meaning only problems with recording ?

                        Is creating a liquid cooling that is both cheap and built well to expensive to expensive to ship with cards?

                                You're stoned... listening to the soothing ASMR inducing voice of Anthony when suddenly a wild Linus screams about the sponsor.
                                Also, wtf is the design of that graphics card? Looks like it's got a dent.

                                      Does Navi really run hot or is it just a crappy cooler not cooling the card off, at the end of the day x watts are going straight to heat, I'm not convinced that any axial fan card would have issues cooling it

                                        5700 XT still runs like a jet engine. It gets to hot for a gpu but you are not going to mention that cause either you don’t care or you just a bot. A 1080ti is still a better investment: even a 1660ti is better investment in terms of time. Is not worth the money!! Don’t buy it !

                                                          Probably has to do with drivers.

                                                            It almost seems like amd is playing leap frog.... were they wait longer periods of time and coming out with better products at lower prices thus coming full circle where they beat the space time continuum and somehow end up in the lead above intel and nvidia..... quite confusing but gratz I’m bending space time amd
