RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 Availability Not The BIG Problem…

The availability of GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards is not really the BIG problem for most gamers…

There are actually many RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards for sale… if you can afford them!

 

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 Availability Not The BIG Problem…

Together with the newly-launched Radeon RX 6800 XT, the GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are the most popular gaming upgrades this holiday season.

Many gamers are gripping about how difficult it is to buy one, but a quick check reveals that there are really quite a lot of RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards for sale.

Sure, they are not as abundant as the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER when they were launched; but you can still find quite a few of them online.

Here is a list of RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards available online, as of 27 November 2020 :

MALAYSIA

SINGAPORE

UNITED STATES

United Kingdom

AUSTRALIA

 

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 : Their Price Is The BIG Problem!

As the list above shows, there are many shops selling all three cards. The only country where there appears to be some shortage would be the UK.

The bigger problem really is the absurd prices some of these cards are selling for at these online shops.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a starting price of $499, while the GeForce RTX 3080 has a starting price of $699. Yet they are both selling for 2-3X that in the US and the UK, and 50-100% more in other countries.

Only the GeForce RTX 3090, with its astronomical starting price of $1,499, has not seen ridiculous price scalping. It is only 20-30% more expensive around the world.

Of course, price is highly-dependent on supply and demand, but that is partly because NVIDIA and their partners appear to be closing an eye on scalping.

Until there is some price control, it appears to be profitable for some retailers to hold onto their cards, and offer them at high price points.

The only way around this is for consumers to hold off on buying overpriced cards, and opt for older cards with far better value instead.

What’s wrong with the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER? Absolutely nothing.

So they are not the fastest cards in the world, but they are still very powerful graphics cards in their own right. Heck, are you buying a graphics card to play games, or to show off?

Instead of getting frustrated at scalpers, buy the best value graphics card you can afford and go play some games!

Unboxing The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT!

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT comes in a large and heavy cardboard box. Very heavy duty, with thick foam packaging.

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT : Hands-On Experience!

Let’s take a closer look at the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT in our hands-on video, and pictures.

Be careful when you handle it, because it is a rather bulky and heavy card.

That’s partly because it comes with a large (and heavy) 2.5-slot cooler with triple axial fans.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is kept cool by a really thick heatsink, covered by a shroud with triple axial fans.

Part of the reason why it’s so heavy – it has a full-length die-cast aluminium backplate at the back.

Here you can see its thick heatsink, and how its cooler is designed to suck in air from the front of the card, and exhaust the hot air from the top and the bottom of the card.

It has four display connectors. From left to right : one USB Type C port, two DisplayPort 1.4 ports, and one HDMI 2.1 port.

The card uses up to 300 watts of power, and comes with two 8-pin PCI Express power connectors.

It should work with two 6-pin power cables though – both 8-pin and 6-pin cables deliver 150 watts.

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT supports PCI Express 4.0, which offers double the bandwidth of PCI Express 3.0.

However, that requires you to use a PCI Express 4.0 motherboard, like the recommended AMD X570 motherboards.

But do not fret if you are on the Intel platform. It is backward-compatible with PCI Express 3.0, and will work just fine with PCIe 3.0 motherboards.

Here are the specifications of the AMD testbed we used.

Processor AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
Motherboard ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero
Memory Speed G.SKILL Sniper X DDR4-3400 (8 GB x 2)
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 (8 GB x 2)
Monitor Dell P2415Q Ultra HD Monitor
Storage 1TB SanDisk Ultra 3D SSD
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Graphics Drivers NVIDIA GameReady Driver 457.30
AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 20.45.01.12-11.6 Beta

 

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT : In Action!

Our testbed pairs the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor with the ASUS CROSSHAIR VIII Hero (AMD X570) motherboard, with 32 GB of DDR4 memory.

Take a look at the Radeon RX 6800 XT in action, and listen to how quiet it sounds… even when it revs up during the strenuous part of the test!

 

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT : Peak Exhaust Temperature

We recorded the peak exhaust temperatures of those cards, to see how much heat they throw out. Take a look…

Note that these are not the recorded temperatures, but how much hotter the exhaust air is above ambient temperature.

Rated for 300 watts, AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is definitely a hot card, blowing out really hot air like a hairdryer. The good news is – its triple axial fans are quiet even during the most strenuous tests.

But please make sure your case is well-ventilated, as the hot air is expelled from the top and bottom of the card, and will recirculate within the case.

It will get really, REALLY hot inside the chassis if you don’t ventilate well!

 

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Performance : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which offers a great approximation of gaming performance in general.

The Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme benchmarks support DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

In the overall gaming score, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT ends up about 42% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER, and 58% faster than the RTX 2070 SUPER. Very impressive!

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT did even better – it was about 56% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER, and 77% faster than the RTX 2070 SUPER!

In the overall score, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT was about 48% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER, and 65% faster than the RTX 2070 SUPER!

Port Royal (Ray Tracing)

Nice! The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT was about 29% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER, and 49% faster than the RTX 2070 SUPER in ray tracing!

DirectX Raytracing Test

We ran the standalone DirectX Raytracing test too, and it confirmed that the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT was about 22% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER, and 47% faster than the RTX 2070 SUPER in ray tracing!

PCI Express Bandwidth

The AMD cards all support PCI Express 4.0, which gives them an edge over the NVIDIA cards.

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT : Our Verdict + Award!

The new RDNA 2 architecture delivered what AMD promised – a serious threat to NVIDIA’s dominance in gaming performance.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is an impressive piece of work, offering seriously good gaming performance, with really competitive ray tracing performance.

Pundits may have been worried about its relatively narrow 256-bit memory bus, but the new Infinity Cache appears to have solved that problem.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say… and our benchmarks have shown that the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is a leap forward in gaming performance!

Here is a quick summary of its gaming performance over the last-generation Radeon RX 5700 XT.

  • Time Spy | Time Spy Extreme : +91%
  • The Division 2 : +82%
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider : +77%
  • Metro Exodus : +75%
  • Dirt 5 : +75%
  • F1 2019 : +61%
  • Total War Saga TROY : +55%
  • World War Z : +53%
  • Star Control Origins : +44%
  • Gears Tactics : +27%

And here is how it compares against NVIDIA’s last-generation GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER.

  • Dirt 5 : +68%
  • Time Spy | Time Spy Extreme : +55%
  • F1 2019 : +54%
  • The Division 2 : +49%
  • Metro Exodus : +45%
  • World War Z : +36%
  • Star Control Origins : +30%
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider : +29%
  • Total War Saga TROY : +28%
  • Gears Tactics : +12%

As you can see, we are talking about a completely new level of gaming performance. Significant enough that it’s worth upgrading from the last-generation cards, never mind older cards!

But we do have to caution you about one thing – its considerable heat output. With a board power of 300 watts, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT produces A LOT of heat.

Fortunately, the triple axial fans are more than capable of keeping it cool… while remaining very quiet.

However, the heat it produces may interfere with CPU performance, if you are pairing it with powerful but hot 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor.

If you do not ensure that there is adequate ventilation inside the case, the heat build-up could result in thermal throttling of the CPU and/or graphics card.

That issue aside, we would like to applaud AMD for a job well done! The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is an awesome graphics card, and it deserves no less than our Editor’s Choice Award!

 

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT : Price + Availability

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT has a RRP of US$649, and will be available for sale starting 18 November 2020.

Custom boards will be available from brands like ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte starting in November 2020.

RX 5600 XT vs RTX 2060 (Super) : Benchmarking Notes

In addition to testing the Radeon RX 5600 XT in its two performance modes, we will compare it against both the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, as well as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.

Here are the specifications of the AMD testbed we used.

Processor AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Motherboard ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero
Memory Speed G.SKILL Sniper X DDR4-3400 (8 GB x 2)
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 (8 GB x 2)
Monitor Dell P2415Q Ultra HD Monitor
Storage 1TB SanDisk Ultra 3D SSD
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Graphics Drivers NVIDIA GameReady Driver 441.87
AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.1

 

RX 5600 XT vs RTX 2060 (Super) : Thermal Output

We recorded the peak exhaust temperatures of those cards, to see how much heat they throw out. Take a look…

Note that these are not the recorded temperatures, but how much hotter the exhaust air is above ambient temperature.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT runs much cooler than the two NVIDIA cards. It actually runs cooler with the 160W BIOS, probably because the fan runs faster, or more often.

The 135W BIOS, on the other hand, is tuned to run quieter. So the fan tends to stay off longer.

RX 5600 XT vs RTX 2060 (Super) : 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which offers a great approximation of gaming performance in general.

The Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme benchmarks support DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

In the Time Spy test, the RX 5600 XT was faster than the RTX 2060 by 4% at 135W, and 11.4% faster at 160W.

At 160W, it came within 13% of the RTX 2060 SUPER, which is significantly more expensive.

Here is how much of an effect they have on the overall gaming score…

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the RX 5600 XT was faster than the RTX 2060 by 6% at 135W, and 8% faster at 160W.

The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER was 23% faster than the RX 5600 XT at 160W, but with a 43% higher price tag.

And here are their overall gaming scores at 4K…

Will you look at that! Even at 135W, the RX 5600 XT was 33% faster than the RTX 2060, and only 10% slower than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

When boosted to 160W, it was 40% faster than the RTX 2060, and just 5% slower than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT delivered good frame rates. At 135W, it was 22% faster than the RTX 2060, and only 11% slower than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

When boosted to 160W, it was 29% faster than the RTX 2060, and just 6.5% slower than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

2160p Gaming Resolution

4K was certainly not playable, not for any of the cards in this comparison. But we can see that at 160W, the RX 5600 XT was 15% faster than the RTX 2060, and only 9% slower than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

 

RX 5600 XT vs RTX 2060 (Super) : Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute.

We tested it on three resolutions using the DirectX 12 API at the Extreme settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160

1080p Gaming Resolution

At 1080p, the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT was as fast as RTX 2060 SUPER, and astoundingly – 87% faster than the RTX 2060.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT was 5% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER, and was almost twice as fast as the RTX 2060!

2160p Gaming Resolution

At 4K, the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT was 3% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER, and 75% faster than the RTX 2060!

Radeon RX 5600 XT vs GeForce RTX 2060 (Super) : Conclusion

The last-minute power-up boost really transformed the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT into an RTX 2060 killer.

Even after NVIDIA shaved off $50 off its price, the GeForce RTX 2060 was no match for the Radeon RX 5600 XT.

More importantly, it gave the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT a much needed boost in price-performance value. In fact, it offers more dollar for FPS than the RTX 2060 SUPER!

The Sapphire PULSE Radeon RX 5600 XT we used as the AMD reference card definitely offers more price-performance value than both NVIDIA cards.

Again, we have to point out that this does not mean that the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT is faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.

It just means you get more bang for your buck with AMD’s latest mid-range graphics card.

Will NVIDIA counter with a price cut on the RTX 2060 SUPER? Fingers crossed!

Minecraft Ray Tracing : Everything You Need To Know!

Microsoft and NVIDIA just announced at Gamescom 2019 that Minecraft will get a FREE real-time ray tracing upgrade!

Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming Minecraft ray tracing upgrade – how it works, the official trailers, and comparisons!

 

Minecraft Gets FREE Ray Tracing Upgrade!

Mojang will soon release a free update for the Windows 10 version of Minecraft, which adds real-time ray tracing support using Microsoft DXR.

Players will get to enjoy photorealistic renders of their worlds, with more realistic shadows, lighting and colours… without resorting to complicated mods.

 

How Ray Tracing Will Work In Minecraft

Working with NVIDIA, Mojang is adding a form of real-time ray tracing called path tracing to Minecraft.

Path tracing simulates the way light travels throughout a scene, and offers a unified lighting model that replaces the different lighting effects that have traditionally been implemented using rasterised or hybrid renderers.

Here are some of the traditional lighting effects that path tracing in Minecraft will replace :

  • Direct lighting from the sun, sky and various light sources, including emissive surfaces such as glowstone and lava
  • Realistic hard and soft shadows depending on the size, shape and distance of the light source
  • Per-pixel emissive lighting
  • Indirect diffuse illumination (diffuse global illumination)
  • Indirect specular illumination (reflections)
  • Transparent materials with reflection, refraction and scattering (stained glass, water, ice)
  • Atmospheric scattering and density (volumetric fog, light shafts, realistic sky)

There is one caveat though – you will need a GeForce RTX graphics card to run Minecraft with real-time ray tracing. Like the new GeForce RTX SUPER cards.

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

Minecraft Ray Tracing Comparisons

 

Minecraft Ray Tracing Availability

Mojang and NVIDIA did not give an exact date, only that the ray tracing upgrade will be available in 2020.

However, attendees at the special NVIDIA Gamescon 2019 event will be able to play-test the beta version for themselves, and even capture and share their game play!

NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER : Everything You Need To Know!

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards are here, and here is everything you need to know about these new SUPER edition cards!

Find out if these are the graphics cards you are looking for!

 

NVIDIA SUPER Teasers + Briefing

The new SUPER graphics cards are designed to extend NVIDIA’s performance lead against the new AMD Navi-based graphics cards.

NVIDIA actually started teasing us about its impending launch with this video from 26 May 2019, before Computex 2019 :

That was followed up on 28 June 2019, with another teaser NVIDIA Super video called “The wait is almost over…” with the hashtag #RTXon

Finally, just hours before they unveiled the new SUPER graphics cards, they gave us a cursory briefing :

As you can tell – they were basically not telling us much. That’s partly because the new cards are basically cut-down versions of more powerful but existing GeForce RTX models.

It’s okay. We have everything you need to know about the new SUPER graphics cards!

 

The NVIDIA RTX SUPER Graphics Cards

NVIDIA announced just three models, two of which replaces existing GeForce RTX models :

The GeForce RTX 2060 survives to remain the cheapest RTX card you can buy, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti remains the top-of-the-line RTX graphics card that money can buy.

 

NVIDIA RTX SUPER Price + Availability

First, these were the official launch and availability dates :

  • 2 July 2019 (6 AM PST) : Soft launch – the NVIDIA SUPER series announced.
  • 9 July 2019 :  The 2060 SUPER and 2070 SUPER available for sale. Custom cards revealed.
  • 23 July 2019 : The 2080 SUPER and custom cards available for sale.

The new cards will cost the same, or a little more, than current RTX cards…

NVIDIA dropped the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 because they were no longer competitive, so this is what the new GeForce RTX 20 line-up will look like :

  • RTX 2080 Ti : $999 / ~£801 / ~€897 / ~RM 4,114
  • RTX 2080 SUPER : $699 / ~£551 / ~€620 / ~RM 2,486
  • RTX 2070 SUPER : $499 / ~£394 / ~€442 / ~RM 2,079
  • RTX 2060 SUPER : $399 / ~£314 / ~€351 / ~RM 1,649
  • RTX 2060 : $349 / ~£275 / ~€309 / ~RM 1,454

Yes, there will only be FIVE GeForce RTX 20 series cards, when it all shakes out…

 

NVIDIA RTX SUPER Custom Cards

At launch, ASUS, EVGA, GALAX, GIGABYTE, MSI, PNY and ZOTAC released 32 RTX 2060 SUPER custom card models. You can check them all out in this article.

Increased TDP Across The Board!

[adrotate group=”2″]

The new cards not only have more CUDA cores, and higher clock speeds, they also have a higher TDP.

The 2060 SUPER has a 175 watt TDP – a 15 watt (9.4%) increase

The 2070 SUPER has a 215 watt TDP – a 30 watt (16.2%) increase

The 2080 SUPER has a 250 watt TDP – a 35 watt (16.3%) increase

The Correct RTX 2070 SUPER TMU Count

It looks like everyone posted the wrong TMU count for the RTX 2070S graphics card, giving it an unfair performance lead over the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT on paper.

The GeForce RTX 2070S actually has a TMU count of 160, not 184. This makes it slightly slower than the Radeon RX 5700 XT on paper, instead of being significantly faster in texture fill rate.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER?

The rumoured 2080 Ti SUPER card will use a brand new Turing GPU. However, with no AMD Navi graphics card posing a direct challenge, it’s possible this card may never see the light of day.

If NVIDIA eventually brings it out, it will definitely have more CUDA Cores, more TMUs and probably more ROPs than the current TU102 that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti uses.

This new GPU will also be “unlocked”, so card manufacturers will have carte blanche to go crazy with it. It will be possible for them to design a card with a 300 watt TDP!

We also expect it to have faster GDDR6 memory, probably 16 Gbps. That would give it a memory bandwidth of 704 GB/s, assuming NVIDIA sticks with a 352-bit bus width.

The NVIDIA RTX Super Price + Game Bundle Guide!

Let’s take a look at the official NVIDIA RTX Super price list, and the free games they will be bundled with!

We will also share with you the latest price guide for the RTX 2080 Super, RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2060 custom cards!

 

NVIDIA RTX SUPER RTX Primer

Designed to extend NVIDIA’s performance lead against the new AMD Navi-based graphics cards, the NVIDIA RTX SUPER graphics cards are based on cut-down versions of existing GeForce RTX models.

The GeForce RTX 2060 survives to remain the cheapest RTX card you can buy, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti remains the most powerful RTX graphics card that money can buy.

Recommended : NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER : Everything You Need To Know!

 

The NVIDIA RTX Super Price List

The NVIDIA RTX Super cards cost the same, or a little more, than current RTX cards. Here is what their launch price list looks like, compared to their predecessors :

  • RTX 2080 Ti : $999 / ~£801 / ~€897 / ~RM 4,114
  • RTX 2080 SUPER : $699 / ~£551 / ~€620 / ~RM 2,486
  • RTX 2080 : $699 / ~£551 / ~€620 / ~RM 2,486
  • RTX 2070 SUPER : $499 / ~£394 / ~€442 / ~RM 2,079
  • RTX 2070 : $499 / ~£394 / ~€442 / ~RM 2,079
  • RTX 2060 SUPER : $399 / ~£314 / ~€351 / ~RM 1,649
  • RTX 2060 : $349 / ~£275 / ~€309 / ~RM 1,454

NVIDIA naturally dropped the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 because they were no longer competitive, so this is what the new GeForce RTX 20 line-up will look like :

  • RTX 2080 Ti : $999 / ~£801 / ~€897 / ~RM 4,114
  • RTX 2080 SUPER : $699 / ~£551 / ~€620 / ~RM 2,486
  • RTX 2070 SUPER : $499 / ~£394 / ~€442 / ~RM 2,079
  • RTX 2060 SUPER : $399 / ~£314 / ~€351 / ~RM 1,649
  • RTX 2060 : $349 / ~£275 / ~€309 / ~RM 1,454

Yes, there will only be FIVE GeForce RTX 20 series cards, at the end of the day.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Price Comparison!

To help you get the best deal for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, here is our price comparison for the US, UK, Australia and Malaysia!

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Primer

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) has an NVIDIA TU106 GPU with 2176 stream processors.

This gives it 136 TMUs and 64 ROPS, delivering a peak output of 224 GT/s and 106 GP/s, thanks to its higher clock speeds.

Its 8 GB of GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz, giving it a peak memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

By offering significantly better performance with 2 GB more graphics memory than the RTX 2060 for just $50 extra, the new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is set to be the hottest-selling RTX SUPER model.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Founders Edition Review!

Of the three NVIDIA RTX SUPER cards, the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is the one true SUPER card.

Instead of using cut-down versions of existing cards, it boasts a full TU104 GPU, higher clock speeds and faster GDDR6 memory!

Find out how the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER matches up against the competition, including the flagship AMD Radeon VII graphics card!

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Primer

Designed to extend NVIDIA’s performance lead against the new AMD Navi-based graphics cards, the NVIDIA RTX SUPER graphics cards are based on cut-down versions of existing GeForce RTX models.

The GeForce RTX 2060 survives to remain the cheapest RTX card you can buy, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti remains the most powerful RTX graphics card that money can buy.

This is how the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER series compares to the older NVIDIA GeForce RTX series.
