Nvidia marketed the RTX 3090 as an 8K gaming GPU and received a lot of criticism for not REALLY being up for it. Can AMD beat Nvidia at their own game with the Radeon RX 6900 XT and a good overclock?

... Does DOOM even have 8k textures? Lmao, just ask yourself this... With AA, SMAA, and other "crispening" algorithms, true 4k is really as good as 8k in this scenario... 8k is really pointless without 8k textures.

Doom Eternal is very well optimized, but also it uses Vulkan. AMD has been better at utilizing Async Compute used heavily in Vulkan. Nvidias chips are not optimized for that, but deliver better performance in more traditional rendering techniques, used in Dx12. That also explains while in Doom Eternal AMD is a lot closer to Nvidia than in other games.

Japan is broadcasting in 8k OTA, several channels natively broadcast at 8k. They've actually been doing this for a few years now. I think they did it in preparations for the Tokyo Olympics. 8k is coming, like it or not.

How is Linus being so chumpy and lame with this subject ? Why complain about 8K when your real complaint is graphics settings ? 8k gaming at low settings is still 8 k gaming.. so stop baiting your viewers for ad revenue from badly made videos. 8k gaming doesn't mean 32k texture use and 80 samples for SSAA, MSAA, and layered AA, ambient AA, hyper pooper AA, Fish Scale AO.. or the BBQ sauce shaders.

Honestly, these days I'm more interested in seeing graphics cards that can deliver the same performance but more efficiently and in more compact packaging. It feels like the size of GPU with cooling just grows every year, with power consumption having no limit nor price. At this point they might as well call the next gen 7180TI and just strap two 3090 together. The only truly interesting parts are NVIDIA's DLSS and raytracing advances, and AMD's infinite cache system. Imagine having both those elements together in an objectively "less powerful" card, but with smaller footprint and power consumption, and a lower price. That'd be a killer graphics card for the average player looking for the best upscale card at a decent price/performance. The top end cards always come across as "we don't want to be creative since price, size, and power consumption isn't an issue -so we just strapped everything onto it with no further thought". 2nd-in-line graphics cards always seem like the objectively best developed products, both from a developer and a consumer point of view.

Nobody cares about 8k. Hardly anyone cares about 4k. Right now tech and developers, on average, arent capable of providing a good experience in either. 1440p is where its at. Good enough res with great frames.

It would be more appropriate to compare RTX3080 with RX6900XT. Currently RTX3080 sells in germany, if available, for at least 200€ more, than RX6900XT.

16:04: I mean, even today, only 2.34% of people on the Steam hardware survey have a resolution of 3840x2160. The vast majority, at 66.70%, have a resolution of 1920x1080. So it could still be said today that "nobody" has a 4k monitor either. I actually use 1280x1024 myself, and plan on continuing to do so until I either make my own monitor at a higher 5:4 resolution or end up having all my monitors in VR, so for me 8k is just something fun to watch videos about rather than something I'd actually use. I don't really mind content about it today as the focus is on pushing a system to its limits, and people do not mind if it doesn't get a perfect framerate there. It does bother me when people say something will be "unplayable" without DLSS though, while doing all the benchmarks on a 4k monitor, when it would be perfectly playable at a more sensible resolution. I am happy with a lower resolution, provided that I get nice crisp pixels instead of annoying blurs. 16:08: "Only", lol. Most people I know have resolutions under that, and the Steam hardware survey shows that even statistically the vast majority of people don't have 4K monitors! 4k is still a high resolution. I would like to see VR benchmarks at higher resolutions though. VR would make a bigger difference the larger you go since the display takes up such a higher percentage of one's field of view.

Your using msi afterburner the wrong way to overclock your gpu. I use the MSI overclocking scanner full (run) and let it run to the end, record the peak core-clock Mhz. then after finish i only set CC Mhz to highest in test. you can test how fast your gpu will go by streaming 8k youtube videos. My msi gtx 1660 super got as high as 2115 mhz but drops to 2085 in gaming and streaming youtube videos.

Doom Eternal Ultra Nightmare PC specs CPU Intel Core i9 9900K | AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Graphics card Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti (11GB) | AMD Radeon VII (16GB) Memory 16GB RAM Ultra Nightmare PC specs (60fps | 4K or 120fps | 1440p) Linus versus Satan in 8K: 16GB system memory this should be fine... It's possible that 16GB system memory is a limitation for 8K Ultra Nightmare. The 24GB VRAM on the RTX 3090 could also contribute to inconsistencies with too little system memory capacity. I speculate RX 6900 XT is a minor bit system memory capacity starved in turn due to OS overhead requirements. The NVME PCIE 4.0 1TB device might have helped alleviate some of the slowdowns potentially. What could be happening is the 16GB system memory is sufficient for the game itself, but the OS itself requires a portion of it causing virtual page file swap usage to kick into high gear attributing to performance slow downs. That's why I feel the issue worsens on the RTX 3090 despite the additional VRAM since it actually is exacerbating the system capacity over saturation bottleneck residing problem. I'm actually curious if the RTX 3090 performance problem is only temporarily, but slowly disappear during game play at least if you're on the same map or in the same general section of the game world environment. That might suggest the RTX 3090 can still populate the VRAM capacity, but experience slowdowns until it's done so similar to a HDD in certain games populating system memory, but micro hitching for a period during game play until capacity gets filled by the slower HDD storage. There is a reasonable chance it's teetering on the edge of sufficient and insufficient system memory capacity in relation to the game and OS requirements and overhead.
