100% agree on doing the legwork. I do the same but I've not researched AMD solutions in a VERY long time. But I think it's absolutely time to do so. AMD has really done their homework and hit a homerun. Prices will fall at some point.

I am also not stressed about getting a 3090 right away, I will buy one if I see the one I want available but no need to rush.

AMD's ecosystem is still less polished feeling. Everyone has their issues but the drivers/BIOS/utilities for AMD are cluckier and more likely to have annoyances than Intel's (at least in my experiance). It has matured a lot since Zen1 but it is still a bit off. All in all I am very happy with my 3950X but I like a bit of tweaking of memory timings, etc.

Zen2 was really good and Zen3 is looking even better. It reminds me of Thunderbird.

I think AMD needs to charge more than Intel while their CPUs are better and have the market hype. If they ever want to be similar to Intel in the minds of consumers they need to leave the days of simply being the cheaper alternative to Intel behind them. Price is a strong indication of quality in the minds of consumers and AMD will probably be able to sell them even at the higher prices given their current positive buzz. I know I have been recommending AMD CPUs to friends who don't know AMD from Asus in a way I haven't been able to for decades.

and if you don't do that and buy about a week after release you end up with a x570x pro like me. it has a semi passive chipset cooler see value or something.

I agree. One example is that they rely on a poorly supported OpenCL for GPU compute stuff. Open non-proprietary is wonderful as long as it doesn't suck.

Since it is Red October, I've ported the Reshade/SweetFx version of AMD FidelityFX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening to .hlsl (9 texture, 47 arithmetic). I don't know if it useful for video playback.

And one more thing...OpenCL went back a few years, the moment the Vice President of nVidia got the chair of President of Khronos Group which is responsible for OpenCL and all the Open standards.

He butchered OpenCL.

Probably oneAPI from Intel - which is surprisingly an Open standard - could save us from CUDA proprietary polished monopoly.

Speak for yourself. I don't need saving from CUDA. In fact, I see it as a saviour.

My EVGA 3080 XC3 is still a ways off. Has anyone else been able to snag one? I stupidly sold my 2080 Ti when 30 series hype was at its peak. No GPU since.

how can something running only on one GPU manufacture been see as a saviour?
also there is direct compute and "Vulkan compute" kind of.

and what have AMD to do with the state of OpenCL they support it pretty well unlike nvidia and that's all they can do about it they can't support CUDA.

Ah man that sucks. No I've stopped bothering even trying at this point. I've read rumors that nvidia is holding supply back for November when it'll try to flood what it can. I'm not sure I believe that. In any case I've chosen to wait till next year unless one magically appears when I'm randomly checking inventory. Good luck!

Latest rumors for October 28th.

All GPUs announced/ released this year will be exclusively Big Navi21

There will be three:

Navi 21 XTX (AMD exclusive)
Navi 21 XT (AIBs - official flagship like 3080)
Navi21 XL

Navi21 XE for 2021

The Navi 21 XT has 2.4 GHz game clock (on average) and a TDP of 255W only.
It is the official flagship of RDNA2 architecture, like 3080 is the official flagship of Ampere architecture.

Navi 21 XT is the Big Navi21 that AIBs have in their hands and the one presented by Dr. Lisa on Ryzen 5000 series announcement.

There will be a faster version Navi21 XTX that AIBs know nothing about it, offered directly by AMD with even higher clocks and TDP of Navi 21 XT, like 3090 vs 3080.

The Navi 21 XTX will not be another Vega64 LC and Navi 21 XT will not be another Vega64, because Navi 21 XT is very close to 3080 with 65W less TDP, so there is a potential for Navi 21 XTX to reach or overcome 3090 with significant less power consumption.
