    I got lucky at micro center today and was able to get a 6900xt red devil honestly my goal was a 3080 but in my opinion who ever fulfills the demand tends to win. Ik I lose out on 2nd gen RT and dlss but as of rn not that many titles have ray tracing in them. But this is my opinion both manufacturers are great. First AMD card let’s see how it goes 🤣

    How come every other review is blowing the Nvidia away :/ I noticed you and Jayz2cents seems to be very biased. Not many people play flight sims 😂 how about modern online games, or Borderlands or anything that isn't minecraft. I wouldn't buy this card to play minecraft 🤣😂 come on your avoiding the games majority of people play.

    I own both nvidia and AMD cards I just see extreme biased in this video by choosing weird games. I'd like a unbiased review of modern games. Like anything in 2020.

    Why even bother talking about price comparisons when they're only available from scalpers at ridiculous markups? If reviewers are there to help gamers make the wisest spending decisions, LTT & others should refuse to do reviews until there's sufficient stock for real consumers to buy them from retailers. Put pressure on AMD, Nvidia, and retailers to come up with a solution.

    Amd ray tracing is still at first stage since 5xxx series didn’t have. Nvidia is clearly ahead on a technology that really doesn’t have an use to most. So is that really necessary to spend 1k+$ on a card that renders light?

    Are AMD cards good for Adobe editing software? I use NVDIA but a professional video editor told me to never go AMD because it doesn't work well with the Adobe ecosystem and I was curious as to how and why. He told me some stuff just don't work or lags too much. Is it true?

    So odd that other reviewers are making videos showing that the card is tanking and saying that it’s barely keeping up with the 3080 and that the software is full of bugs and that it’s heat limiting it’s own voltage? You wonder why nvidea is busting your balls? Stop trying to suck start AMD.
