    Yawn! Where are the 2080 killers? I realise many play at 1080p to get higher FPS, but most gaming monitors are now heading in the 1440p and 1600p (albeit some 4k) region, so really need something that has more juice. C'mon AMD, don't let Nvidia set ridiculous prices for tech that's still 2018.....

    So it's between 5% to %20 faster than the 1660 Super with a few games outside that range. Given the 1660 Super can be picked up for as little as £200, I'd expect base models to come in around £230 max to be price competive. You know it's going to be £259 and up, just another poorly priced proposition.

    When you can pick 5700 up for less than £300, it doesn't make much sense.

    Why would the 5600XT perform less well relatively on the Intel 9900K system? Was it actually PCIE 4.0 that makes the difference?

    The 4G 5500XT showed some bandwidth performance throttling, can't remember specifics but it was there. Check Hardware Unboxed review for details on that

    I have impression that AMD can not show high-end GPU. As that one might come with support for ray tracing and Microsoft and Sony do not want AMD to show that too early. Because otherwise, there is no reason for them not to show it.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: AMD launches the Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card

    Yeah i think you are right about higher end hardware, and really consoles will need that as most are on 4K TV or heading there.
    Also the other team should play their hand first, not least if you have a good hand too, cuz that will instantly zap much of the other players glory and put it on yourself so you sort of get free goodwill if you have the hand to pull that off.
    I will reserve the right to bitch and moan if larger GFX cards or consoles, are substantially better than my 5700XT and at a only marginal larger prize.
    But no matter what what i have "just" paid for my 5700 XT is about the limit of what i am willing to part with, and not least now when no one make a damn game worth playing.
