Hey, three of those (F1 2021, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Call of Duty Black Ops) are Nvidia sponsored titles.
No good getting salty with me just because your 10-15% got called out as wrong.
To be fair you got personal with what you wrote, not the other way around. No hard feelings here Woodsta888 so no need for ignore options.Where AM I salty with you? I even put smiley faces on. I even said in my first post I'd go with the 6700XT.
usual stirring and self projection with personal insults as usual. Just block me FGS
I just used GURU 3D reviews and my numbers compiled from GAME benchmarks within it.
Your first link shows results from a 6600 review. Why wouldn't you use a review from the cards we are talking about? Looks like TPU haven't even reviewed a 6700XT and extrapolated.
The situation is/was the same for the MBA cards in Germany when I last looked. In fact it was worse. You had to use scripts to add the product to your cart and checkout before the AMD page ever showed the product as being in stock. This was possible because the stock dropped at the same time and it was always on Thursday.Oh those mythical - sold in under 10 seconds FE cards
@OP you are correct with your statement that the 3070 out performs the 6700XT
If you 'want it now' go with the 6700 XT even with my apparent over optimistic uplift in performance from a 3070 that's what I'd go for as the cost difference doesn't warrant even my over optimistic values.
Check reviews for the games you regularly play or want to play, as any generalized figure will dumb down any manufacturer sponsored advantage in other games.
At the end of the day - you'd never notice or 'feel' any difference anyway - it's usually just measurable.
So even using my over optimistic perf uplift the extra £150 isn't worth it as the bang/buck would show.
If you prepared to spend £750 on a 6700XT or save for (get a 0% credit card) a £900 3070, you need to be on alerts for FE's
or as your wallet was already streching to £900+ for the 3070
3080ti £1049 which is near as makes no difference to a 3090 game perf wise but 12GB ram difference.
As hangtime says - get a 6700 XT now and then sell it when you score any of those FE cards. Though there is a bit of luck involved. Plenty here have managed it.
Good luck mate.

On Discord this was referred to as "Donderday" or something daft
Of course in the UK AMD does not even offer a chance to buy direct.
So in all aspects AMD's showing is worse, and yet you have a dig at nV for their FE drops which are easier to get than AMD's MBA cards.
Right on, then.
That's exactly the point. You were complaining about "mythical FE drops" but AMD's situation is worse.You cant buy an AMD drop in the uk ever so your comparison is useless

It doesn't make sense to attack nV's FE drops when your beloved AMD has a worse showing. But you do you.
I have a 6700 XT in the house (son’s PC) and a 3070 TI FE. The 6700 XT is a fantastic bit of kit. I paid £750 in May. Stupid price but I sold a 1660 Ti and recouped about half, and it has had 6+ months of massive use. Great card. Slower in RT, but my son doesn’t play any RT games (I do!).
Why not save yourself £300 and buy a 6600 or 6600 XT and then sell it and upgrade in 18 months. You will get maybe 50% for it, so £200-250 cost to get 18 months of use, until prices stabilise.
Why exactly am I on my knees to anyone?No its not worse its exactly the same. Get off your knees in front of Jenson and the real world
Spin it however you like, FEs are real and people are buying them. Those that do are getting better value for money than any AMD card in the UK, period.
The performance delta can rise higher than 2x in games with RTX (eg in Cyberpunk at 1080p the 6700xt will struggle to hold 30 fps but a 3070 can do >60 fps without breaking a sweat) so while the low vram on the 3070 sucks the card overall is more than worth the price difference, and I say that as an RX6800 owner. It ultimately comes down to what games you play, as always, but I would 100% pay £150 extra for the Nvidia features.
