The RTX 3090 is Nvidia’s 3000 series flagship. It takes the crown as the fastest consumer graphics card money can buy. Nvidia’s new Ampere architecture, which supersedes Turing, offers both improved power efficiency and performance. The 3090 features 10,496 CUDA cores and 328 Tensor cores, it has a base clock of 1.4 GHz boosting to 1.7 GHz, 24 GB of memory and a power draw of 350 W. The 3090 offers more than double the memory and beats the previous generation’s flagship RTX 2080 Ti significantly in terms of effective speed. That said, the 3090 also comes with a hefty $1,500 price tag. Professional users, such as game developers, that can make use of 24 GB of memory, may find value in the 3090. Regular users should be wary of the hype around 8k gaming. High end gamers ought to consider the 3080 which offers comparable gaming performance for less than half the money. In terms of real world performance, Nvidia’s 3000 series has more or less put AMD’s Radeon group in checkmate. Nonetheless, AMD’s marketers are capable of delivering elaborate BS albeit whilst struggling to keep a straight face. Their marketing infrastructure outsold Intel in the CPU market despite a 15% performance deficit. Without an appropriate social media strategy, Nvidia may still lose considerable market share, for all the wrong reasons. [Sep '20 GPUPro]

The 6GB AMD 5600 XT is a slightly cheaper, BIOS restricted, version of the 8GB 5700. The majority of 5600 XT’s should operate reasonably quietly as the single fan reference design was skipped for this release. Although the reference design is absent there are, however, several variants which range in performance between the GTX 1660S and the RTX 2060. Performance is more varied than usual because of last minute BIOS changes. The best versions of the 5600 XT (Sapphire Pulse) were distributed to reviewers (good luck finding one of these at MSRP). These models are capable, with BIOS updates, of performance that almost matches the RTX 2060. At $280 USD the higher performing SKUs could make sense for users that are happy to tinker with or return faulty hardware. During our GTAV testing reflection MSAA resulted in very poor, almost matt, reflection fidelity (the same bug appears on several Navi and Vega cards). Whilst playing Project Cars 2 our 5600 XT PC crashed several times. Given the vast number of software (and hardware) problems since day one of the 5000 series launch, it’s ironic that AMD’s latest 20.1.3 driver does not even offer an option to skip the installation of a boatload of new system shortcuts, gimmicks and other bloatware. [Jan '20 GPUPro]
