Agreed. I'll begin to populate this thread with my own results. Including stock performance with the MBA / Reference 7900 XTX. Additionally, all of the hoopla around the hot spot / vapour chamber issue. What is it, what is the scope of the issue (which cards are affected), how to diagnose it, what are the steps people need to take to resolve it (RMA). 

 

I've taken some time to consolidate the OP. Hiding the graphs behind spoiler tags to keep it clean. I've also included a relative performance chat with large images so people know, right off the bat what to expect with these cards against other cards in the same or different classes.

Very nice. GPU is super quiet, can finally get a vsync locked 60FPS in wildlands (even a 3090 can't do that)

 

Very happy with it so far.

Congrats! 

 

To be honest im a bit jealous as im fighting my inner Daemon and trying to convince him and my self that i dont need an upgrade now .. :buttkick:

 

Having the XFX 6900 XT and as well happy with the card. But from the reviews i saw so far its basically the hotest (highest temps - but the design is hot) from all the AIB models which kinda surprised me... IDK what your plan is with it, if you gonna WC it or keep it on air - but if you write the customer support they give you the information of the thickens of every thermal pad there. Did it last year and this year finally ordered the pads.. have to replace the pads (or better i want to see if i can get more out of the cooler. And as it has a copper plate i can just recommend to repaste it with LM. It dropped my HotSpot temps by 10-12 degrees on stock XFX cooler on air.... you can push it more or get it even quieter and chilled 😉  If you do anything just share some pics and results - would be interested 🙂 

 

Also wanted to ask for a longer time now, there are so few AIB models out there with the 7900XTX - are there planned to be any other models to come?

I bought the 7900XT first because I was desperate and couldn't find an XTX in stock.

 

The XT had issues with the 2nd display port being intermittent.  Basically after low/no power states it would fail to display.  I'd spend half an hour trying to force it to display, finally succeed only to come back after lunch to the same problem.  I sent it back, the new card has been a dream.

 

The XT was probably enough graphics card for me.  Coming from a GTX 970, I still haven't figured out what to do with all this card.  It's a beast.

The cooler on this thing is huge, and the GPU temps are great. No need to water cool it but that's not something I do anyway. If I had money for water cooling I'd just get an even more powerful GPU instead.

Damn, from a 970 to a 7900XTX.. haha that's a massive upgrade. What kind of monitor do you game on? What res/refresh rate? 

 

 

 

Just some thoughts on this GPU, I was really on the fence between the 4070Ti and the 7900XT. At first I was leaning a little more towards the 4070Ti because DLSS is more prevalent and pretty useful for 4K gaming. If not for the recent Harry Potter game and it's Vram scaling, I very likely would have ended up with the Nvidia card, but I don't think the 4070Ti will age well. On top of that, I looked up a list of FSR2 games and it's actually in a lot more games than I thought it was now (over 250) so I feel like AMD is actually getting closer and closer to parity with Nvidia all the time as far as upscaling goes. Of course, that leaves out frame generation but for me on a 4K/60hz screen frame generation would not really work anyway since it's more for high refresh rate screens. I just want to get a stable 4K60 with little to no compromises for anything less than heavy RT while still being able to play around with RT if I want to, and I feel like the 7900XT achieves that very well.

I bought 2 LG 32" 1440P 240hz monitors @$500 each.  I had some buyers regret until I figured out image sharpening is a thing.  (Text was fairly blurry without it.  Actual gameplay/image still looks good. Now I'm wishing I had a 3rd.  (Max resolution for the card!)  They went up in price about $180 since I bought them.  Makes it harder to justify buying a 3rd...

 

32" 4k 144hz was about double the price, ($800-1000) but arguably may have been a better choice.  I think 4k will age better...  The 240hz version was $1500 so...  I coupd buy 1 monitor or 3....

 

I think I'll make the jump to 4k when 240hz is more common/affordable, maybe in a few years.

 

Prior I was using a Yamakasi 27" 1440p. It used to overclock but started having issues displaying when it wasn't warmed up.  Stock refresh still works fine.

 

Sadly the Yamakasi is duel Dvi only, and active adaptor links seem to be close to $80-90. Feels bad to spend that on and old monitor that was $350 to begin with.

 

There's a noticeable sharpness difference between 27" and 32" at 1440p.  I think 32" 4k will be a nice sweet spot.

 

I'd like to get into VR, but I think waiting for a refresh of the Valve Index is the way to go.  Unless anyone has some good recommendations.

Oh nice, so high refresh rate then. You playing some competitive FPS or racing games?

I think you made the right choice.  7900xt was hitting 240hz+ (Often 260-280) @1440p in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.  It really is a good card.  I don't think it will bat an eye at 4k60.

 

I did notice some pretty bad stutters at times when the game drops to 10 fps, but after playing through, I'm convinced they made 0 effort to optimise for PC/AMD.  I had to force 60 fps to make some of the puzzles actually work.  Plus, trying to use mouse and keyboard on the Map is infuriating.

 

I liked previous Tomb Raiders, but Shadow of the Tomb raider will be the last one I buy.  Dev's just did a copy/paste of previous games.  It lacks love.

I'm not actually good at competative FPS, I quit playing them when I felt disadvantaged.  Those moments when I know I clicked, but my shots never went off.

 

Playing siege now feels really fun.  If I die, it's because I legit screwed up.  Not because I lost the reaction game...  Guess I'll br trying to pick up more FPS games, might look into Quake Champions.

 

My true love is flying/space sims.  One day....  Star Citizen will exist...  I've played a Lot of Elite Dangerous, but I'm generally frusterated with the direction Frontier Development went.

 

I'm looking into Everspace 2, but my attempt to Calibrate my CH HOTAS was fraught with disaster.  Windows 11 isn't playing nice with their outdated drivers (have to disable core isolation if I want to use them....  Not sure I want to do that).  I need to take my pedals apart and clean the potentiometers my right toe brake takes a long time to reset to 0 after pressing it.

I tried Elite Dangerous and it made me realize I wanted to play a space sim that allowed me to walk around in and out of my ship, so I got Star Citizen. If you like that type of game I strongly recommend you jump on Star Citizen with a cheap starter ship. So much to do, it's overwhelming.

Echoing UltraMega's comments. That is a huge LEAP. Techpowerup shows it as 600% LOL.

In console context that would be similar to moving from a Base PS4 / Xbox One to a system that is ~2x faster than a PS5 / Series X.

Welcome to the club!  Maybe I can get a Google sheet going with club members if there is appetite.

Update: I've created a sheet up top (3rd post) which includes a live Google Sheet. The Google Sheet is directly embedded into the post (nice feature). See post above for more details and how it works. I may reposition it in the main OP as I find more content to fill the first few posts. TBD.

Yeah, I'm having trouble changing my gaming habits to actually use the new found power.  For so long I've gravitated away from stuff my system didn't run well.  Speaking of....

I own a Gladius, my friend bought me an upgrade back when there was no way in game to upgrade ships.  My old system complained a lot about Star Citizen so I quit playing, but that was supposedly before they fixed the netcode.  (Every computer was processing everything on the server).  The Caterpiller was guaranteed to crash a server.  The bugs, they were good times...  Like sending a ship into an endless spin by exiting, making the ship unrecoverable because it would whack the player and send them flying a looong ways away.

 

Hit me up sometime if you want to play.  It might take me an hour or two to get past the main boss *cough* keybinds *cough*
