  • price/perf. seems on par with 3070. The 6700XT is lacking some hardware for ray-tracing, but then ray-tracing won't become mainstream for a few more years. It does seem like reddit is getting obsessed with ray-tracing.... no sure if it matters though.

    The biggest question is: will the 6700XT be good at mining for the given price & power consumption? If it's good then the whole stock will be absorbed by the miners and no one else except perhaps a few system integrators will see a trace of these gpus.

      right now miners only like nvidia with GDDR6x and 256 and 386bit memory interface.

      miners don't like AMD Infinity cache.... 6800/6900 have 128mb infinity cache and 6700 has 94mb infinity cache...

      the reason why miners don't like it is this: the working thread of etherium is 4GB and this does not fit into the 128mb cache.

        They didn't invest enough and they didn't use previous 10-12nm wafers either. You believe in random shortages and you mock others instead they mock you.

          if you want to lower the price you need to do something likt this: now a pc has RAM and a SSD but this is wrong if you want to build cheap pc... then your best friend is NVRAM Non-volatile_random-access_memory
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-vo...-access_memory
          this means instead of a SSD of 256GB and 128gb of ram you only buy 256gb NVRAM DIMMS and NO SSD at all.
          this lowers the cost by 400€ because 128gb DDR4 ram costs you 400€

          if you want to lower the costs ARM is the wrong way because this company makes a lot of money with licences of the ISA and design.
          then you go with RISC-V or even better OpenPOWER. I do not like RISC-V but i like OpenPOWER
          this reduce the licence costs to ZERO... and it is also very modern RISC design.

          right now you have to pay for GPU IP intulectual property
          but if you establish an opensource gpu design like openPOWER is for the CPU ISA world then the costs of such SOCs will go down.
          Not this round, Ps5 is profitable from the start and they get the Apu for less than 200. Amd gets back that their Apus will not be used for PC like operating systems, so someone will have both a PS5 and a PC. Trash above trash lets say.

                ... believe it or not i know Low IQ people without any school degree and on wellfare they only have playstation 5 and smartphone.
                and this is a lot of people.

                someone like us who still have outdated tech like PC are more and more rare.
                the companies like AMD and DELL and so one co not count PC people as consumers anymore they count them as workstation class customers who do "Work" because no privat person buy PC anymore only people who do work with it.

                ""NORMAL""" people today have: smartphone, Smart-TV and maybe playstation5 (but only if they are gamers)
                they do no longer have PC most people also do not have notebook anymore they just go for smartphone

                if you read all i wrote to you about the future of "cheap" computers and modern tech
                then you realize that i did give you the complete and full overview of all tech what will transform the future of computing.

                and now if AMD does a backport of the RDNA2 architectur to 12nm and GDDR5 with 512bit interface and 4608 shaders
                you will see some cheap GPU to. ~500€ at ~14TFLOPS with raytracing and 16GB vram with 512GB/s memory

                OpenPOWER will lower the costs on the same performance you save transitors compared to 386_64
                with the rise of power based opensource GPU you will see a price drop in the gpu market.
                NVRAM Non-volatile_random-access_memory will for the most comsumers make SSD and RAM obsolete.

                    is it important that you can follow my thoughts ?
