The only of point is that 3070 seems to be very similar in price than 6800xt... unless there will be severe price cuts in 3070 prices...
msrp ampera is even more rare than ampera in the stock...
but all in all promising. Though it seems that stock for big Navi Also is allmost nothing...

That the 3090 barely crept over the frame rates of the 3080 and 6800XT suggests that this might be CPU-bound at this point... maybe?
Usually I see AotS used on 1080p/crazy as a gaming CPU benchmark, so it seems pretty likely to me that a non-overclocked 8700k could be a bottleneck.
Although, the RTX 3090 barely creeps over the 3080, in general. The 3090 was designed for Titan-class prosumer workstation rendering/AI, not gaming. Its 2x the price for an 8-10% improvement in most games.

My concerns this gen are quite pedestrian... what's cheap, what's in stock, and what'll fit in my case. I have a feeling AMD will take all those categories. Threw me for a loop last night when I realized a large number of 3080s, including the reference design, won't even fit in my case. The sizes are becoming ridiculous. The 6800xt is a still-sane 267mm.

No one going to point out that they got the numbers backwards?
Interestingly, for the Geekbench 5 OpenCL score, the results are quite different, the RX 6800 XT measured a 132605 score in the OpenCL test,
But if you look at the image the 6800XT actually scored 158820.

APISAK also linked a new Geenbench 5 score for the RX 6800, AMD's mid-range competitor to the RTX 3070. In the OpenCL bench, it scored 158820 points.
Again if you look at the embeded images the 6800 actually scored 132605.

I'm sure this was only an accident, but it seems like something an editor, or heck even the writer themselves, should have been able to catch during a proofread.

I was here to post the same thing!

Whoever wrote the article has probably been looking at too many numbers lately!

they do this alllll the time. when the 10th gen intel came out they wrote that the turbo was 5.8, 5.7 and 5.6 Ghz. they pump these articles out in less than 20 minutes to make their $100 bucks then write another spam article for someone else. Fact checking is not a concern, we all clicked right? mission accomplished.

Anyone who buys a 6800xt or a 3080 for 1080p has issues anyway. So what exactly is the point here?
Well, AotS is particularly demanding, so that's one thing.

But people will buy high-end cards for 1080p. These are the people who are of the belief that the human eye can actually distinguish, and the human brain and body can actually react to, frame rates of 120, 144*, 165, 240, and 360 frames per second.

*144Hz monitors, some of the time, don't seem to go for much more than their slower brethren, so I can see why one might get a 144Hz monitor.

Good points. I guess if you're into esports. Which I'm not. My reflexes went the way of the Dodo years ago. :)

I do want to run 4k/120 though as my tv is good to go but I don't have anything yet that outputs at that. I could try a dp to hdmi adapter but I'd rather just get a new video card that handles hdmi 2.1 natively. Adapters can be problematic.

So I'm anxious to get my hands on a 6800xt but if I didn't want 4k then I'd certainly just stick with my current 2070 that handles 1440 very well, and presumably 1080 although I never run at that. The 10GB on the 3080 worries me and I'm not well versed enough in graphics tech to know if I should be worried so the 16GB on the 6800xt sounds a little less risky to me.
