Pros: Smashed PassMark - G3D Mark with 30,890 score. Faster than GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in PassMark. #1 in world. My monitor is LG 32inch - 165hz 1440p G-Sync/AMD IPS and I'm shocked that I'm pushing everything past 165 fps @ 1440p. I mean, I'm not angry, but I had no idea what kind of upgrade this would be from a RX 6700 XT to this was gonna be. Never owned any gpu that was benchmarking results like this. To put it frankly.... 'shock factor' is best as I can describe it and mental state that I'm in. Just incredible performance, eye candy, and quality. Lost for words..
Cons: None. .. Best GPU I've ever owned and D### proud of it
Overall Review: Make sure you download the Sapphire TriXX software and set your card to 'serial' LED sequence if you want your card to display all LED colors in RGB. I absolutely love this GPU and now a Sapphire loyalist.... doesn't get any better than this.... what rock have I been living under all this time... PC specs: CPU: AMD 5700G GPU: RX 6950 XT Toxic RAM: 64G DDR4 3200 (Team Force) PSU: EVGA 1K - SuperNova MOBO: Asus Prime B550 Other thoughts: I'm on the fence to upgrade CPU to either Intel 12900K or AMD 58003XD or 5950X but as you know both AMD and Intel have fall 2022/2023 CPU roadmaps so doing the waiting game until then. I'm also just not sold on 4K gaming just yet either; we are still about 2-3 years out before we see 160 fps @ 4k so I'm sticking with 1440p gaming. That being said, another cycle of 1440p gaming monitors will also hit customers this fall & spring; my guess is 170-220hz at 1440P. That is why I made the leap into this 6950XT Toxic; I wanted something now that was #1 and can carry me into next 2-3 years with only CPU/MOBO upgrades necessary. 4K gaming is just not going to happen in the world of 165+ fps anytime soon; it's just not, it won't be until we hit 4nm CPU's, 18,000+ stream GPU (cuda cores), with DDR5/6 in prime time, possibly 32G VRRAM. This is years away. So ..lots to consider. There is always the whole talking point "just wait until next generations come out', but if you have been paying attention to that argument for years; you hit supply and demand, as well as over-hyped products that are not delivering factorial data in regards to GPU tests and benchmarks, etc etc. It's just one of those times where it's here and now and from my research and benchmarking; it's a great time to upgrade to a known and available product. Last time I wanted to upgrade I ended up waiting almost 2 years. I pulled the trigger and only sharing these details so you can make your own educated decision. If You want a GPU that will hold it's own in 1440P for next few years....This is it. Cream of the crop. Period.
Pros: This card delivers , amazing performance. It is also very quiet. The rgb fans and lighting , along with the covers and back plate. Make this gpu a work of art. With the ability to deliver FPS with quality settings.
Cons: I have one complaint. It would be very nice if there was a option to have 90* fittings come out of the gpu. If you plant to mount it traditional. If you vertical mount it is not a issue . So make sure your case has depth behind it's panel cover.
Overall Review: Power , beauty and quality . This product is well built and is fitted together to be an amazing package . If the price point falls any on these (SNAG ONE )!
