    Add me to the list of people who upgraded to Ampere purely for the ray tracing. If anybody believes there won't be a massive difference in Cyberpunk 2077 visually with ray tracing, they are fooling themselves to feel better about not having any ray tracing ability in that game due to their hardware choice.

    RTX 3090 ready to ray trace CP2077 with full glory. And I will be loving every moment of it.

    I had my eye on AMD for the first time however I felt I would miss the additional features that Nvidia cards have over time. I opted for the 3070 in the end as I don't think the pricing of the others are worth it for my needs, I would've liked a 3070 Ti or something like that but I'm more than happy to roll with the 3070 for a while.

    Re: QOTW: Nvidia Ampere or AMD RDNA 2, which do you favour?

    Well, at the minute I'm more than happy with the 3060Ti, maxed all the settings out on Warzone and locked to 60FPS its fine, temps are 20oC cooler than my old RX580 was, even with some settings reduced that would drop to mid 50's sometimes and would hit 72oC...

    That said, I think RDNA 3 will be where its at, AMD have rattled both Intel and NVidia in the last 18 months, and if you look at the performance difference between the AMD generations rather than comparing them to the Nvidia offerings, then you see, IMHO at least, how much of a threat they are now, look at the 20xx series vs the 30xx series improvements between generations from Nvidia..

    Re: QOTW: Nvidia Ampere or AMD RDNA 2, which do you favour?

    I do want to interject that if AMD ever brings chiplet design to GPUs, Nvidia is in DEEP trouble. RDNA4 is the most likely place such a transition would take place, and Nvidia really has no answer to chiplets in it's portfolio. Monolithic dies are all Nv knows how to make so far. AMD's experience with Ryzen/Threadripper/Epyc and chiplet design really gives an edge to AMD that I'm surprised isn't lined up for RDNA3 already (unless it is and it's a surprise...).

    Imagine if they bring chiplets to the 7xxxx series and then the series of APU's after that have a combination of chiplet CPU and decent GPU cores...

    That seems at least within the realm of possibility, though I think 7000 series will likely be RDNA3 and the last monolithic high end GPU from AMD. They can stretch their legs a little further on the current route with 5nm and get away with it, but after that, all bets are off. That is why I guess "8000 series" or RDNA4. But sooner IS possible, and would be smarter to do so sooner than later.

    Pleased for you but, whilst I have the money, personally I couldn't get my head around spending £1500+ on a 3090 (nor any other graphics card that's north of a grand). And the 3080 is no use to me due to its limited VRAM.

    Horses for courses though. It'd be a dull world if we were all the same.

    (Written) reviews are out (video ones still under embargo), sounds like there are stability and performance issues with CP2077 so, like FS2020, probably best waiting for things to get patched before diving in.
