  1. Am I the only dude that thinks ray tracing is overrated at the moment… and the push for it is only for selling newer hardware? Maybe next gen it will be standard. But at the moment, bloat with a shine…

  2. Holy shit I just looked and both of these gpus are around $800 for the cheapest models right now. That is pretty awesome compared to how muchthey were even when this video was made in late February

  3. AMD bias much? you should be comparing an intel cpu with an nvidia card with an amd cpu paired with an amd gpu..anything else is a bit not fair

  4. Picked up a 3080 12gb for $800 USD on newegg! I am done with AMD for now (I have a 5700xt) since I get frequent graphics driver crashes (especially on Fortnite).

  5. I have a 3080 10 but I am not gonna spend another $200 for 3080 12gb just to lose to 6900. I am gonna wait for next gen and trade in because I can.

  6. I ended up getting a 6900xt TUF gaming for 1099 AUD. I feel like it's a pretty good deal at the moment since I have been borrowing my brother's old card for the last 2 years. I was looking to get the first to reach 1k since I usually just play at 1440p and 1 have a 144hz monitor.

    I didn't want to invest in the 3070 ti since it's only 8GB and I'm hoping this will last a while!

  7. Wow 4 months later and you can get a 6900xt for $1100 Aus. So annoying, bought a 3070ti for $1100 3 months ago…thought it was cheap! lol

  8. Curious why you use aftermarket Nvidia and base model Radeon cards in you benchmarks. Use a Red Devil or Nitro+ to give a more accurate comparison as the boost clocks will compare to what the Nvidia is getting vs founders edition

  9. Didn't the 6900xt trade blows with the 3090 in your day 1 review? Did the 3090 just age better? The 6900xt was on sale for $719 today at newegg. So these might start becoming relevent again.

  10. My 6900 XT actually performs way better than yours for some reason, I saw in some other videos that apparently the reference model is very bad so it could be that. Mine is an XFX MERC319.

  11. sweet two of my least favorite companies fighting out for people willing to spend 1k on a video card. i feel like i'm rubber necking some bad car accident. man this was in feb. LOL good luck with all that.
