    When it comes to nvidia stuff, never assume. D.P. (the nvidia police) will hunt you down and make you regret it! :p;)

    Typical of the OCUK forums.
    This the big Navi thread is talking about the NVIDIA cards and the Ampere thread is talking about big Navi.

    Don't you just love it here.:D

    And 10 lucky people will be able to buy the entire initial stock allocation for the UK :p

    With real availability coming 3 months later.

    Isn't that how it works these days?

    I don't think that I am interested in hardware ray tracing support for the RTX and these new AMD cards as I cannot notice any difference.

    Lol. Yeah, it has been a bit poor so far. But that is to be expected. With a lack of hardware and developers just getting going with all this it will take time.

    Will be interting to see what 2020 games deliver. But truth is it will probably take many years until we get the hardware needed to see a day and night difference.

    Awesome, new AMD 2080ti killer to release in June July, then a week later should see some big price reductions when nvidia drop the 3000 series. Then 3 months after aib cards and 9 months from then hopefully drivers are starting to become stable...

    Lol, actually not, but two work mates BOTH fell foul of this buying AMD cards to save a bit of cash. One of them will be without a GPU for however long it takes to RMA for the black screen issue... which I thought was an issue down to crappy drivers. Thre other just moans about the noise and it running over 80 degrees and that he bought it day one only for prices to plummet.

    AMD GPU department doesn't give me the warm feeling that the CPU's do, I wouldn't touch one currently.

    The Adrenalin 2020 drivers were released broken, as AMD said to Gamers Nexus, when they asked them when they were going to fix them, those drivers, were just to bring in the new UI, and new features, so now they've got those done, they are now getting on with fixing them. :p

    They not have broken has people are making out, sure some users have more problems than others. The big issue was only with some games, not all doesn't mean the whole driver is broken.

    20.1.2 has already fixed loads of issues, and AMD is very active on reddit atm
