Broke my $800 rule for video cards and bought the SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon RX 7900 XTX 24GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card 11322-01-40G for my main desktop so I can finally put my living room PC in the living room.
Desktop has been without a graphics card for months, the 4090 is too expensive and the 4080 is a bad buy.
Haven't bought a AMD card since the "GIGABYTE GV-R587D5-1GD-B Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity" in 2009. If/when AMD disappoints me this time I'll add them to my 5yr shit list like I usually do for companies that disappoint me.
So for I've installed the drivers and immediately had a .dll error so I couldn't launch their control panel so I had to copy the .dll out of the setup and paste it in C:\windows\system32\drivers Hey, at least it didn't prevent me from booting....
Can play Witcher 3 at 120fps at 3840x1600 with everything maxed except for RT turned off. With RT turned on FPS are halved but it's around the 60fps mark.
/EDIT Why do driver versions have to be so complicated "AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 23.3.2 Driver Version 22.40.43.01 for Windows® 10 and Windows® 11 (Windows Driver Store Version 31.0.14043.1000)."
Which driver version is it? I see three.
