Pros: Raw Performance is great
More power efficient than other cards
Minimal RGB, just an led really on side
Cons: Coil whine is noticeable, had to drop an egg for that
Overall Review: Overall pleased with the card and it’s performance. Drivers are good so far. No game crashes yet.
Pros: - 260W to 280W power usage
- Reasonably quiet fans
- And no coil whine noise!
Cons: - None
Overall Review: This is the 3rd AMD GPU I install in my small (Asus mini-ITX ROG Strix X470-I Gaming) PC.
I started with a power hungry Veg64, then moved last year to a Powercolor RX 5700 XT (nice basic and small model) and now installed the Red Dragon RX 6800 XT.
I also upgraded the CPU from Ryzen 2700X to 3900X.
By the way, I never ever had any problem with this system. No crash, no artefacts, no GPU drivers problems whatsoever. Moreover the PSU is still a modest BeQuiet SFX L Power 600W
Pros: it runs fast as heck...specs list boost clock at 2310 but according to AMD software i have seen mine reach 2455....2K gaming is great as well....temps only reached 65c after 3 hours gaming with fans at 70%...no coil whine and no games crashing using latest driver
Cons: price and availability....
Overall Review: i spent more than i wanted but i didnt want to wait any longer...also wish powercolor warranty was 3 years like the other brands...happy with what i got
Pros: Far more power then last gen cards, runs everything Ive thrown at it on Ultra or high settings, on ultra superwide monitor at 1440 without drops in frames. Runs very quiet even when switched to OC mode.
Cons: Only con is the price gouging that is taken place this round of tech goods. No where near MSRP.
Overall Review: I would recommend to others if can get it closer to MSRP or if in need of a card this minute. Only thing missing from this gen so far is AMD's real answer to ray tracing, though I have yet to see it real meaningful impact in any game, all the games these days look amazing showing how far the industry has come along over the years.
Pros: - Overall I like this card, it runs everything I want it too, even the poorly optimized battlefield 2042
- Runs and looks pretty cool
Cons: - The only complaints I have are that it's generally pretty loud, not so much the fans, but the coils. Other than that I'm pretty happy.
Overall Review: Would be a 5/5 ... but giving it 4/5 only due to how loud it is. (I'm not factoring price into the rating simply because ALL GPUs are currently priced as such.
Overall Review: Needed to RMA the unit I received as it wouldn't play any games at all. Couldn't even perform a minor performance check from Kombustor or Userbenchmark without soft resetting the entire PC most times. Other times it just failed outright.RMA is taking a while, which is mostly my fault for not writing the RMA number on the outside of the box. Still not sure if I'll get the replacement I requested or just a refund. Either way, not happy.Update: Instead of sending a replacement, Newegg just refunded the money instead. Now I have wasted tons of time and luck to no longer have the item I have waited months for.It took until 02/17/21 to get the refund for a purchase that I wanted a replacement for - I gladly would have waited - that I ordered on 01/27/21. Sticking with 1 star both for the manufacturer and for Newegg. Can't recommend either , to be honest.
Pros: Runs COD at 250 FPS at 1440p. The graphics are so crisp I don’t even turn RTX on. Also I use my gsync monitor with v sync enabled at 144hz and it works fine. I would love to see this card in action on a free synch monitor.
Cons: I’m not sure it’s the graphics card but I did get crashing on Hitman 3. You can overclock the card but it runs loud if you do that and at 1440p what’s the difference if you have a 144hz monitor.
Overall Review: If you want a card to max out 2k and just run smooth this is the card for you.
