Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

Well today in the UK was the launch of the AIB 6800s and it would seem that not one retailer had any in stock! That goes beyond paper launch! The card is quite warm but I haven't tried under volting yet. It's quite capable at 4k running games like AC:Ody and Mafia DE at max settings 60fps. RDR2 is …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

That is a sexy card! Looks like the front grill of an 80s car when installed :D I've just seen this and I think it looks like an early 70s Plymouth... https://i.imgur.com/lxAQN3B.jpg I do sometimes wonder what sort of graphics performance we could have achieved in the early 2000s if we had allowed …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

Hmm I've not owned a Navi card to know the issues exactly but from reddit posts something DX8/9 that is a bit demanding for their time: Witcher 1/2 FEAR Spellforce 2 Oblivion Gothic 1/2/3 (https://www.reddit.com/r/worldofgothic/comments/em34al/gothic_fans_with_radeon_57005700xt_navi_cards/) The …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

It's absolutely enormous. https://i.imgur.com/oML5W9Th.jpg https://i.imgur.com/9WgvbfPh.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/jPAzkVrh.jpg?1 That's a Nvidia GTX645 single slot, 75watt graphics card - quite capable of playing games up to 2017 or so (on low settings). It's got to be 10% of the volume of the 6800 …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

Congrats! Yeah we are shafted for the RRP $1=£1 on computer hardware. OCUK is a bit pricey but they seem to get the most of any new GPU stock so we have little choice. Tried to get a PS5 and failed miserably, bots got them I guess. Hope you get it soon and tell us how it performs in DX9. Well it …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

I've decided I don't have the energy to join the bumfight for a new card come launch time. [sarcasm] What are you? a socialist? The whole point is the bumfight! How else do we proclaim the virtues of unregulated capitalism? Fighting like a dog to spend money is the cornerstone of the American way! …

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

With AMD not listing worldwide prices 2 days before launch, I have zero faith AMD will handle launching a new card now better than Nvidia. This is my concern. I think the supply issues are reasonable or at least not unexpected given the pandemic it's just how AMD handle it. I've decided I don't …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I am tempted to swap out my 3700X for a 5900X but I have no need until I upgrade my 1070ti to be honest. I also can't do it until ASUS release a BIOS update for the X470 boards which is around January time apparently. But in the mean time I'll be trying to track down a 3080 or 6800XT (or maybe even …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I'm really not that into 3DFX cards, ones later than the Voodoo 2 anyway. My first Windows 98 PC (that I built as a retro PC) had a TNT2 Pro in it and I never once ran into an issue where a game would not support Direct X or OpenGL. I have a Voodoo 3 PCI that I fortunately picked up for £15 in an …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Thanks. I'm actually looking at it's bigger brother now, the Core V21 which takes M-ATX boards as that will unlock a whole load more of my old-but-not-old parts I could put it it. It will only leave about 1cm of clearance top and bottom, and thats with removing the large 3cm feet and putting 1.5cm …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I made an ITX PC to live under my TV in my office for playing games leisurely whilst lounging in comfy chair. It's got an RM OEM 1155 motherboard and it had an i3 3240 (or something) 3.4GHz and 4GB RAM with a 1GB GTX645. It's completely fine with PS360 era games but can't really play anything well …
