    6800XT owners... Do me a favour please?

    TLDR I'm VERY tempted to get a 6800XT now over the 6700XT I had my heart set on...
    I've just seen multiple people go from 270w @4K 70ish FPS in RDR2 down to 190-204w and retain the same of within 5-7fps difference...

    Now I just want a locked 60fps @ 1080p for single player and IF I bothered with CS:GO/2 I'll 1:1 sync it with my monitor...

    Can someone that's got an undervolted 6800XT do a 5-10min stability test in a game with Radeon chill/framelimit within the game (whichever you want) at 60fps 1080p ultra of say Cyberpunk/TLOU/Resi2,3,4 Remakes/Anything a year old or new'ish single player wise and let me know your results?

    I'm not bothered if I loose like 10fps or something and not bothered about an overclock... Strictly about the undervolt and best bang per buck fps vs power usage with the extra 4gb of vram the 6800XT has over the 6700XT - which gives me a bit more future proofing playing at tasty settings...

    Let me know what you can achieve kthxbai

    Good riddance. Wish I'd done it about a year ago.

    Amazing, so I have had someone test it for me elsewhere... 117w in Cyberpunk 1080p 60fps locked ultra settings no RT... 127w ultra 1080p 60fps locked TLOU I'm DEFINITELY going 6800 XT now!!!

    With my monitor/amp/speakers/pc at the wall total power will be around 260-280w IF that. As I've measured basically everything else.

    Cannot wait to get the rest of the parts now!!! Already fitted the motherboard/hsf/front I/O/ssd... Just waiting till end of the month till I can get my 6800XT/PSU/Ram then she's ready to rock.

    Very cool project! And impressed with the wattage you'll likely be attaining.
    Any idea how this compares to the likes of the PS5/xBox One?

    I don't want to know what I'm pulling from the wall, it will scare me!

    Cheers mate, just been trying to make everything I own as best bang per buck per watt as possible, so changed my phat ps3/4 to slims with ssds, go a mac mini 2012 with 16gb ram/sdd as my main machine...

    I still use my trusty 2012 macbook pro with same guts as my main storage for everything I care about with many time machine backup drives (new ones frequently to be safe and regularly backed up) and a 27" AOC that even at 350nits on full brightness uses summit pathetic like 15-22w if that and that's whilst I have 2 hench old skool speakers plugged into an old creative sub/amp combo...

    So I wanted to see if I could have my cake and eat it with a PC as well, as I haven't built a gaming rig since lol the first gen quad core stepping q66 as I've been messing around with pyschos and old school cars, drifting, and teaching myself how to fit/modify/restore cars in general the last 13 years so just had the macs whilst that was going on and consoles.

    Yeah I did look into it and at worst with the monitor/speakers on it'll be about the same as a PS5 without a tv turned on, I do have a 65" led tv too, but it only uses 105-112w on 4k content and 142-145w on 4k 60fps hdr...
