    It won't work. First of all needs airflow or air con. Second cost, size and weight. This is for vertical installation not horizontal.

    If this is Navi 2.0 on console I really have to wonder what Navi 2.0 will do on PC.

    I know they are going for a natural look but what stands out the most is the bodies of water. It looks so real.

    Some of this does look ray traced. Or, that's one heck of a game engine.

    You know that was probably running off a 2080ti PC right

    Nah, it's horizontal. But it's a so-called "MPX Module" that presumably has weight support at both ends rather than just one.

    Apart from a few new posters or recently reappeared posters I wouldn't say they're gaining mind share at all.
    It's still the same people with the same positive spin and the same people on the other side lol.

    Reviews were all over the place in tone and ire directed at the blower.

    I've personally recommend the 5700XT to two people in the real world however

    Ha nope.
    But they were upgrading from a 290X anyway one of them.

    Think my brother may buy a 2070S but he's coming from a 1070.

    Yeah, both the XT and S are solid cards so he won't go wrong.

    Hmm, I do wonder why this wasn't a PC video as the original was.
    But from the ramblings out there MS/Sony have had the Navi hardware now for several months. From what I've recall about last gen was that they put the console hardware in an actual PC case before the final design. I assume that's the same with this next gen HW, in a PC case. But no...no 2080ti I'm afraid. :p

    Back in the early 2000s, a bizarre thing is that the Xbox360 developer prototypes were actually standard Apple PowerMac towers, because they had a similar PowerPC CPU and ATI graphics.

    One thing. The upcoming console won't have Navi 10 in them. The chips will have will be more advanced. The current Navi 10 GPUs were supposed to be out last October, and a new gen is already for 2020 release with ray tracing.

    For those interested in content creation. A test 5700 vs 2080 for fairness, because the 5700XT is a bigger beast.



    And this is a followup to this video.

    Microsoft has a long history of showing "xbox" games running off PC's, they've been exposed for this many times before.

    Not sure if its been said yet, but is the 50th edition of the 5700xt any better at overclocking than the standard one? likely to have a better binned core or just a case of a higher clock on the bios?

    I tried google but couldn't really find anything
