    So here's the thing...

    The 2600 is currently sitting around US$125 on Amazon:

    The 2700 is currently US$199 but has been as low as US$150 recently:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...language=en_US

    I'm just keeping an eye for now but if say the 2600 drops close to US$100 or the 2700 hits around US$130 on Black Friday would that make them be a better buy than the 3600?
    If the 2700 hits $150 i'll replace my new 2600x with it and overclock it, if the 2700x hit ~$175 i'll have that.

    Which makes no sense, unless you're making videos / rendering stuff.

    Depends what the 3600 costs, I think it's worth paying a premium for as the boost above the others is quite nice.

    This guy covers some pretty good topics.

    I'd rather the 3600 if it's for gaming (even if it costs $100 or $150 more) - much more stable gaming experience with less frame stutters, in addition to the overall boost in framerates.

    ^^ Frag, I can't watch the whole thing - but he says Samsung can make 858mm2 dies at 7nm - wouldn't the yields be utterly terrible?

  7. Post
    Yeah I looked at the 2700x, but the 3600 bet it in most applications. Not sure why you would go for it when they come out at the same price?

    The destiny 2 bios bug fix didn't go so well. Apparently the update has been pulled due to a pcie error.

    Not sure lol. In theory yes, but I don't keep a track of Samsungs chips.

  10. Post
    LOL the reddit comments, people saying they want to put their 2700 back in until all the bugs are fixed

  11. Post
    yes yes go my pretties , iron those bugs out before December comes around.. Thank you to all you beta testers out there! you are saving me a lot of grief.

    Yeah I stand by my original comment that the 3600x and 3800x are rubbish, not sure why you are trying to defend them dickytim. Buy the chip below them for cheaper, get the same performance with close to no effort... like 3 basic changes in the bios.

    The X means nothing but a name in the 3000 series. It used to designate XFR, but now all the chips get PBO.

  16. Post
    Conspiracy theorists are saying the 3800x is a cash grab, because while the 3700x is out of stock in most countries the 3800x can still be purchased

  17. Post
    That's a bit silly. Even if they are selling out of 3700X, it's due to real demand rather than a lack of stock *cough* Intel's recent releases *cough*. So many posts on Reddit with people showing off their 3700X based systems. Probably only out-numbered by 3600 sales.

    You wouldn't notice the difference is my bet.

    Still works mint but running titan x maxwell, used to run original (isint it keplar?). Still runs most games around 80+ fps at 7680x1440 :P Still think multi gpu initiative is dead like Jayztwocents said. Should be heterogeneous multi gpu by now and software should see multi gpu as one card so theres no bs compatibility or proprietary coding. Were going backwards. I see navi has no multi support and nvid is meh. Profit margins are still acceptable imo with two main stream cards vs one premium for both vendor and customer to benefit. Sheeple struggle to mount two cards sideways so i guess that matters more

    This news site is reporting that AMD will be launching an updated driver "soon" that enables native support for DXR on it's Navi cards: https://www.techquila.co.in/raytraci...port-amd-gpus/

    That means you'd be able to turn on ray tracing, just like you can on GTX cards.
    But with no hardware acceleration in the current form of Navi architecture, the performance hit would be similar to the GTX cards.

    Find that rather naive, how do you think they can more efficiently implement raytracing on vega 2 generic raster intended stream proc units? Is this where doing more with less will outweigh some ott purpose built raytrace arch? Pretty sure intel were more into versatile programmable shaders looking back... Since MS xbox and PS (what ever is next) is already gloating raytracing i hold little hopes for nvidias current transistor bloat to accommodate DXR for now.

    That’s an architecture change - current Navi would do DXR through software emulation.
    Only next years Navi will have the architecture change to accommodate hardware acceleration through a special instruction sets run off shader cores.
