    Two new Radeons compliment AMD’s simultaneous 3rd-gen Ryzen launch, but do they have the performance it takes to keep up with Nvidia’s RTX SUPER cards, or are they just hot air?

                        Anthony is a great host! It's a shame that a better cooling solution wasn't put in for these cards. $0.04 in washers can fix the problem though!

                          These need a re test!! There is a soft power play mod that boots the 5700xt to 2.2 ghz

                            What confuses me, is how the thermals for the Radeon VII were better than the 5700 XT. It was a way better card, and I'm still wondering why they discontinued it. It obviously looks like they can't engineer anything to replace it, because of the heat issues of the 5700 XT.

                                          eh. if upfront performance is already improved and optimisation easier, then Finewine isnt gone... its made obsolete.
                                          also, regarding heat. of course it overheats with that shitty single fan. probably should look at consumer versions from other companies with improved cooling.

You have a new machine shop basically, and I am an experienced Machine tool builder system integrator. I spent my life for 15 years building robots from scratch, and would like to think I am an experienced system builder and aspiring computer tuner. I spend my weekends trying to get that fire strike or time spy score higher ... on a budget. My current system was 10th in firestrike, 3rd in time spy and highest current record for sky diver despite the fact is pieced together total garbage.
