Pros: Runs every game flawlessly at 1440p. RE, Tomb Raider, Battlefield, Wolfenstein and Bioshock series are the kind of games I play and the card renders the newest ones beautifully and even perks up some of the older titles a little. Runs my Oculus Rift flawlessly as well. The fans stand at attention, spool up ultra quiet even under heavy load and come to a dead stop as soon as I log off of a game which are all huge pluses having an open air layout. Got it paired with a Seasonic Focus 850w power supply which more than handles the demand.
Cons: It is large and heavy. I went from a 1080GTX (pictured above the 6800XT). Had to mount it vertically and have a wine cork under the 3rd fan to keep it level because it didn't look right horizontal in the case with a card stand. Now for the ugly part but it is not the card's fault, the price. $1500 out the door, taxes and all is about how much I spent on my last entire upgrade. Is it worth it? To me yeah but I'm a tech addict. If you have a good bit of life left on your old card I'd hold till mid 2022.
Overall Review: Overall I'd recommend this card to anyone who has the change to spare and room in their case. If you're on the fence and can wait, definitely do so. It's a great card and is leaps and bounds above what I upgraded from.
Pros: -Couple percent behind 3080 at 4K and couple percent better at 1440 or below for 30% less money. -Best FPS per dollar out right now in a decent gaming card. After 2 years, finally GPUs below MSRP. -3 display port outputs. I need that for my 2 monitors and VR headset.
Cons: -It's big and heavy. Considerably bigger than at 5700XT - see pics. Make sure you have room. -Comes with nothing in the box. Not an adapter, cable, or even a sticker.
Overall Review: I think this is a good card for the money. New cards are coming out right now, but even with the 4090 that just came out, this is still the best performance per dollar out there. It doesn't outperform it, but it costs way less. This is a 300 watt card, so make sure your 750 watt power supply has at least 2 rails with dual eight-pin connectors or 3 rails with single eight-pins. PCIE rails are only good for about 200ish watts, so you can't run this off one wire without being a fire or damage hazard.
Pros: This thing runs all games like a boss. CP 2077 Ultra settings paired with 5950x/aorus x570 master/32gig trident z neo/1tb samsung 980 pro m2 gets me averaging 80-90 fps steady. When gigabyte comes out with a decent mobo bios and I'm sure amd will fine tune their software as well, it will get even better. 9 out of 10 all day. Edit, this is at 1440p @ 144hz.
Overall Review: Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Pros: -Every game I have thrown at has worked perfectly. I did get the latest drivers in 12/22' I bought the card early November and so far the latest AAA games have run just fine. I play at 4k 60 fps with HDR. Most AAA games run above 120fps at 1440p, also. Even Cyberpunk. -I have not overclocked this card yet. So far do not see the need until I get a faster 4k monitor. I do not think you can overclock these cards much as they come out of the factory about as closely tuned as you can get. You could do more, but it would reduce your cards life. -build quality is very good. I am an enthusiast gamer and build a game pc at least once a year. ASROCK has done very well with this card. Yes it is big, but that allows better airflow/cooling by using a larger heatsink and 3 fans. -everything you need in the box -newegg was superfast with no problems, I appreciate the warranty that goes past the first of the year, when you buy stuff before Christmas -Aircooled, so far temps have been below 74c, I did point a fan straight up into the card. -I also used a proper bracket support. -no whine, but have not heard bad coil whine in a couple generations -this is the ugliest argb build I have ever done .... sigh....
Cons: So far I have seen no cons. -the aesthetics are okay, not for me.
Overall Review: I mean you get exactly what your are paying for and at a very good price. The card is big, but what do you expect, you have a powerful card, with great cooling and 16gb of ram. That is alot of heat, and to control it, it will need to be big. I added a large Swarovski crystal dragon, just to go all unicorn puke in the 3rd pic.
Pros: Bang for Buck
Cons: Ray tracing
Overall Review: Needed a decent card for my ultrawide 5120x1440p monitor. If your not worried about tracing rays, this card will not disappoint. I have had 3090, 3080, 3070ti, 3070, and 2 6700xt. Card falls right there in between the 3080 and 3090 depending on the games.
Pros: very powerful, run all my games without a sweat
Cons: Very big graphics card. Make sure you check the dimension of your computer case and the length of this card!
Overall Review: I highly recommend this card; AMD has done an excellent job.
Pros: - Fast, it tears through all my games at 3440 x 1440 (Warzone/MW2 120+ fps Ultra, Cyberpunk 100 fps Ultra. This sits between a 3080 and 3090 in terms of rasterized performance. - I actually like the design lol, mostly because of the backplate - Decent temps, Sits around 50-60 C during intense gaming, stays around 45-50 when running not very intensive games - Not very loud, haven't heard any coil whine
Cons: - RTX support is not as good as Nvidias. It's around RTX 2000 series, a little less. Though, personally speaking it's not that big of a deal, I usually have these settings off anyways. - Chonky, need case with decent air flow and space - 3x8 pin power needed (use separate cables for each)
Overall Review: Put in the card a month ago with my new build (5800x, 32gb ram) after upgrading from a i5 6500 and GTX 1080. Huge, huge upgrade. In every game I've played at ultrawide 1440p, I've been getting an average of well over 100fps. During usual gameplay, when I'm utilizing the GPU at 99%, the power draw usually gets up to 272 W, which isn't bad for the performance we get,so I'd recommend a good PSU, something like a 750 W or more if you need it. Temps usually sit at 50 - 60 C for me which is better than the 1080 I had which usually at at 70+ C (then again, old GPU). Price/performance is crazy good with this. I don't know how much a 7800 XT would cost, but unless it's within $200 of this price point, and unless it delivers minimum 1.5x performance, I would say go with the 6800 XT for around ~$550. I have a feeling this card will age very well. Oh and drivers, they're good. Haven't had any problems so far with any of the games I've ran yet. I've had it for a month and will update review if I see any changes I don't like, but so far, very good.
Pros: - Upgraded from a 1070 so the performance has been mind blowing - AMD has gotten a lot better than it used to and have had no issues on any game with drivers - Not OC'd I can easily hit 144 FPS in most games on high/ultra settings with 1440p and FSR makes it even better for games that support it and RSR for games that don't support FSR - Solid backplate and very little sag - Love the option to turn off RGB - RGB looks good - Great software
Cons: - Some coil whine but hoping it will simmer down after some use - Some weird interaction with a game on 1 screen while the other screen has a browser open while the browser plays a video ad. Could just be that site/game combo - Nothing but card came in box. Was hoping for a sticker at least
Overall Review: For the price during the sale, about $900 CAD after all fees, it was a steal of a deal. Performance challenges 3080 in some games and outperforms it in others if ray tracing is not used. A good buy if you want to upgrade and don't care about ray tracing. A bonus if you are into overclocking
Pros: Shipped quick Card has huge heat sync It was a new, unopened card It wasnt $1200
Cons: Non yet
Overall Review: After waiting for 2+ years to get a good card at a good price, I finally snagged this for $515. The heat sync is massive and the card feels like it is well made. Ill be looking forward to gathering the rest of my Pc parts so I can finally game in PC wonderment.
