Pros: -Good Lord it's a mighty fast graphics card.
-Overall, it's a nice looking card. Not derivative of others.
-Solid build quality in both feel and looks.
-Massive heat sink that works. On close inspection you can see full contact from thermal pads.
-Good packaging (for the most part).
-Overclocking boosts performance massively. Even the one click in ASRock Tweak. I haven't spent any time fine tuning but I got it to 2800 just to see. It'll pob hit 3000.
-They didn't do a good job hiding the heat sink behind the middle fan. You can see a large chunk of aluminum (not the fins, but an extension, I guess).
-There were some creases in the foam when I first opened the box. Everything seems to be okay, but, kinda looked like the packaging was rushed or UPS really mishandled the package.
-A couple of bent fins, but, not a big deal.
-ASRock tweak leaves much to be desired. I've been spoiled from Sapphire Trixx. But, it works.
-The, "PG", logo on the backplate doesn't light up. I knew that going in, but, man..Woulda been nice.
Overall Review: Some how I was able to grab one of these on Dec 11th. I actually wanted the Nitro + or Taichi 6800 XT, but never saw the Nitro in stock (not even for a second) and the Taichi was bundled with an Intel Mobo (no thanks). I've been kind of a die hard Sapphire fan, but have always owned ASRock motherboards so I know they have the ability to make a quality product. I'm glad I bought this card. Now I have a 6900 XT (no matter how "impractical"). It's an absolute monster. If you are on the fence about buying this because ASRock is new to the GPU game you should definitely buy this card. They have a 3 year warranty, most brands only have a 2 year.
UPS needs to get it together. They crushed the box this was sent in.
Pros: - Excellent frame rates at 3440x1440
- Runs relatively cool (mid 40's idle and mid 60's to high 70's depending on game being played)
- RGB is tasteful
- Arrived unscathed from NewEgg (good job) packaged well
- Card looks and feels very well built.
Cons: - Card is massive and just barely fits in my Corsair Crystal 680X (seriously 1mm longer and it doesn't fit)
- I dont care for the red highlights, I realize its AMD etc, etc...but manufacturers need to just make cards black or white or some combination of the two.
- Polychrom Sync RGB software is not very good IMO. It works but its very slow to startup and once you set the colors I'd just unload the software
- Very expensive for what it is
Overall Review: Ok so lets first address the elephant in the room, this card and all GPU's are massively overpriced in this crypto mining world we live in today. I really held out as long as I could and I landed this card for $1499. This is by far the most expensive card I've ever purchased. I'm upgrading from a EVGA 2080 which I paid roughly $700 for so over double in price and I'm quite certain I'm not getting double the performance. That said, I just wanted to build an all AMD machine and well I paid the piper. Also 6800XT's are going for almost as much and I just figured I'm already spending way more than I want to so I might as well just go all in.
This card is huge and weighs almost 6lbs. The Corsair Crystal 680X was always going to be the case I built this system in and I was shocked when this card barely fit in it. I really thought I would have surplus space given how roomy this case is but wow, another millimeter and I'd be sending this card back. The card has a very slight sag on my Asus TUF Gaming X570 Plus MB. Nothing I'd be too worried about but I may slide a support in there if it kicks off my OCD too much in the future.
The card feels and looks very tough and there is nothing cheap feeling about this card. It is performing very well at 3440x1440 and I'm getting great FPS on all the games I'm playing at Ultra settings. I'd say decent temps as well, I did play with the fan curves a bit but generally its running in the 40's idle and 60's to high 70's during gameplay. I dont have a 4K monitor to test out and I'm really not considering 4K gaming at this point in time. I think 1440p is the sweet spot for gaming right now and this card is almost overkill but what is wrong with that right?
I'm not a fan of the Polychrome Sync software that you use to change the lighting on the card as its very slow and takes forever to start up. Once I have the color set though its easy enough to remove the software. I'm also not a fan of the red highlights on the card, I knew the color-scheme when I bought it but I'd prefer and all black or black and white card.
Overall I think this card is a winner and if you're like me desperately trying to build a new machine in the worst possible market, this card is a fine addition and you shouldn't be worried about its performance. The pricing is insane and I realize I'm contributing to these high prices by purchasing this card but I wanted a new machine and it is what it is. This card would probably retail for around $1200 normally anyway so $300 over is pretty good in this market IMO.
Pros: The performance of this thing is mind boggling. Didn't think I was going to see a huge difference upgrading from a 6700xt, but wowie zowie it's in a different universe. No stutter or tearing on any AAA title I've thrown at it so far. Quiet at default settings even under load. Do you really need to overclock this thing? Nah son nah. Easy hookup to my Corsair 850 psu.
Cons: I was excited to only pay $600 over MSRP, but like PRICE.
It's massive. The picture above shows (top to bottom): rx590, 6700xt, 6900xt
Overall Review: I'd recommend this card for anyone who wants to run any of their games at max settings without the hassle of tweaking all the graphics options. Plus it feels like you got a pair of ten pounders when you unbox this thing, ya dig?
Pros: It's a powerful card. And looks nice. Thermals seem decent. Also got RE7 and farcry 6 for free, or you can consider it as part of the price. It's probably the cheaper of the "high" end GPUs.
Cons: Needless to say but AMD drivers are a bit lackluster.
It's a bit expensive for what you get, I know everyone thinks they should wait for GPUs to go down in price but they won't. Also no stickers, no poster, nother just the GPU in the box, a bit disappointed. For what you pay you figure they would put more goodies in the box. Oh well.
Overall Review: Wish it were cheaper, but if you are willing to pay 400-600 more than MSRP then it's a good card.
Cons: Product arrived unusable. Installed it into a new build and seemed to function because light tasks didn't crash.
Got black screen of death when gaming. Was told the power supply was the issue. Replaced the power supply with a bequiet 11 platinum 1200 watt PSU. Still crashed. And then they finally admitted it was the GPU causing the issue.
Now the return window on Newegg is up. And I have to deal with the RMA process of the company and hope this is still covered on warranty. Will update this depending on how that goes.
Overall Review: I would not purchase this product again. It has been nothing but issues. AMD forums show many people using this card are having similar issues.
Pros: -Run most games at 60+ FPS ultra settings
-Build quality is very good most of the card is finished metal
-Super beefy cooler gives a lot of overclocking room
-Card runs cool with minimal noise
-Better over clock potential then reference with x3 8pin pcie
-Beats 3090 in SOME cases
Cons: -For the price I would expect it to come with a sag bracket or AT LEAST some stickers or accessories.
-performance can be underwhelming in some titles depending on the developers partnership
- Should buy x3 8pin pcie cables for $60
-Doesnt do Ray Tracing very well
Overall Review: Overall I dont see gpus getting any cheaper. I built my 5900x pc last Christmas and was using a gtx 970 for a year. I wanted a 6800xt because of its incredible value but they are literally the same exact price on Newegg as the 6900xt. If you cannot wait or dont have time for drops this card will do the trick if your willing to cough up the cash.
Pros: Great card. I have one of the best PCs money can buy now.
Driver install was easy
Cons: Over priced
Hard to get
Overall Review: If you can get your hands on one for $1700 or less it may be worth it.
Pros: FAST!! (Did I mention it's FAST??) Really can't get it to 100% with the usual benchmarking tools. Stays under 70C at all times so far.
Also quiet when under load- could only get it to run at ~70% so far.
Cons: MS Flight Simulator- still can't run it at 4k with everything on Ultra. (It's the new Crysis)
But BOY does everything look gorgeous, as you'd expect.
No ray tracing (for all practical purposes); this doesn't hurt in many games right now, since not many support it
The one (center) RGB fan is ok, I'd rather go with all RGB or none.
Overall Review: Super fast, quiet so far.
