      resizable bar should work on all reasonably modern hardware(but of course newest amd cpus will give you best speed)

        I'd be interested in purchasing some.

          So odd having a 1 day review embargo. Given that these cards come out tomorrow? Normally they give it a 7-day or more so reviewers have time to crunch numbers, 1 day seems like a last minute joke!

            I'm sure the cards are sent much earlier and the unboxing content is released only when AMD tells them to. Even the shittiest reviewer needs more than two days to review a GPU.

              I am worried about AIB prices. Asus in Poland set price of 6800XT above MSRP 6900XT. That being said 6800XT looks promising from leaks.

                  I was trying to read something into that too, and didn't want to reply to Michael's coaster post, but while that may be good, old, traditional beer it's not their strongest. A different beer would have given me a different impression, I can only hope that we can't read any into that; considering AMD's claims (which I am not doubting).

                  Would NV Moet & Chandon Brut Rose, (187ml) been a better choice ...

                    Paulaners "Salvator" is good - I live in Bayern (Bavaria) so it is easy to get. Helles, Bock, Dopplebock, Dunkel. One of my favorites is actually from Rheinland-Pfalz - Park Pirmanator. It is a Hell Bock.

                    You got to love being in a country where bier is cheaper than soft drinks.

                      I think tech people are actually the ones who wouldn't get it. The press and social networks would certainly be filled with so much flame about the NVIDIA/AMD GPU wars there would be no margin for mistake. Also these are the groups who probably watched NVIDIA's release of the RTX 3000 series, to which the oven is a reference.

                      I don't see how taking a newly baked product out of the oven could be sexist. NVIDIA's CEO did it. If the thought process is that he can do it because he is a man, and she can't because she is a woman, then that thought is actually sexist. But, well, it's the internet so I don't doubt anything anymore.
