    Yup, something I have been noticing for a while now. Frame times always appears much better on AMD systems.

    That's one of the best reviews ive seen, looking forward to the overclocking vid he is going to do. might shed some light on how to get the best results. nice find that.

    Yup, more to gaming than high fps. A smooth frametime is a lovely lovely thing :cool:

    Here ya go. He doesn't go into much detail, I think you'd get more from people in the owners thread here who seem to be on top of it.

    I just benched Dirt rally and got a decent 99.79 fps average at 1440UW, My Vega64 gave me a 75 fps average.

    News just in!! AMD compute card with 16GB HBM does well in compute tasks!

    All those graphs show is Vega 7 is a good compute card, which we already knew as it's a rebadged M series card..

    In fairness a lot of that could be attributed to the fact that ATi entered the 3D era as one of the biggest GPU companies in the industry and Nvidia entered it as a garage start up.

    A lot of people often forget that the evil green empire originally started out as everybody's plucky underdog snapping at the heels of the big corporations like 3DFX/ATi/Matrox/S3/Trident/etc.

    Seriously? He sticks 2000mhz & 1145mv on the core & why it isn't stable. :eek: At stock it's around 1800 with 1065mv, I've gone down with my mv not up, I took it to 995mv and now it's barely audible through my case under load & it performs a little better..


    I'm sure things will improve over the next few driver releases.

    Well, with these 16 GB of VRAM, this card will be faster than 2080 Ti, once the latter hits its 11 GB VRAM ceiling.

    The legacy of inferior green image quality comes from the garage.

    That be true, the TNT2 was NV's 3DFX beater, then they purchased 3DFX Nvidia offered good value back then. Ati were strong until AMD purchased them, big mistake I think for gamers. 2 voodoo 2 cards scan lined (SLI) and quake 2 running 50fps

    No it's a repurposed package on a redesigned pcb.

    i think the guru3d review he only gained 2c by changing the pad to some high end paste, so the pad is probably equal or better to alot of garbage pastes/applications. my personal wtf are u doing thing is the shroud where it says radeon being so huge its stupid :/ blocking airflow.

    The logo was dumb, they could have made it smaller so that entire top section would have had the same gap for air to escape instead of it blocking off an air vent.

    I'm buying one the second I can get a water block. It'll be interesting to see what results are possible under better cooling.

    OK, who wants to take a Dremel to their £700 GPU and cut that damn logo off the shroud? Actually, if I had one I'd probably redesign the shroud completely.

    Indeed @Vince and myself have the overclocking well underway compared to most reviewers attempts, come join the fun XD
