We've put together a powerful and sleek build to help generate some inspiration for your own build.... or you can just use this one! (Image Courtesy: NVIDIA) Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Vermeer 3.8GHz 8-Core AM4 If you're building with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, you're going to want a processor to match that power, and AMD's Ryzen 7 5800 X is a stellar pairing. Delivering high-powered processing and overclocking potential without breaking the bank - just like the 3070 Ti. Alternate: Intel Core i7-11700K Rocket Lake - Intel's new i7 processor, offering comparable performance from a different company. Note: the selected motherboard for this build is not compatible with an Intel processor. Motherboard: ASUS B550M-PLUS (WiFi) TUF Gaming AMD AM4 microATX Motherboard The plot twist of our build: we're building a microATX PC! Offering all the power of a full-size rig, just shrunk down to a much smaller size. And with that in mind, we want to keep all our components to a minimum, so we made sure the ASUS B550M-PLUS has onboard WiFi, so if you're not hooked up via ethernet you can still access the internet without adding anything else to the build. Alternate: ASUS B560M-PLUS TUF Gaming WiFi Intel LGA 1200 microATX Motherboard - To complement the alternative Intel processor, we picked out an incredibly similar Intel motherboard. Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 8GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 The centerpiece of our build is, of course, the new ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, featuring stellar ray-tracing capabilities, solid 1440p, 144hz gaming performance, and NVIDIA's suite of gaming tools. The 3070 Ti delivers 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames that the 1070 Ti could deliver. In other words: it's the card for our build. Processor Cooling: NZXT Kraken M22 120mm RGB Water Cooling Kit Sure, you could go with a standard air cooler for your processor. But when you're building in a microATX case, space is a premium. Plus, you should really treat that fancy Ryzen 7 nice with a sweet AIO. Hence the NZXT Kraken M22. Featuring a single fan, it'll keep your processor cooler than a standard air cooler and take up less space in the process. Perfect for compact builds! RAM: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel 16GB of RAM is more than enough to handle pretty much anything you could put this little powerhouse through, but we've left two slots open if you decide you need to double your RAM to 32GB. And that splash of RGB will add a nice bit of style to the build. Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe Normally we recommend a hybrid of SSDs and HDDs for new builds, but with space such a premium in micro ATX builds, we're going pure M.2. The Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe will offer all the speed you could ever want in a hard drive, all in a sleek form factor that will fit snugly into your motherboard. Alternative: Inland Platinum 4TB SSD M.2 NVMe - 1TB not going to cut it? Shoot up to 4TB for even more game space! Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GT 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply I always recommend modular power supplies - the ability to remove cables you don't need in your build is paramount to creating a clean and efficient build. And it's never more important than in a microATX build when space is so much more limited and errant cables can ruin your airflow. EVGA's SuperNOVA 750 GT delivers enough power with an 80 Plus Gold rating to keep your PC running efficiently and is fully modular to keep it clean. Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Case: Corsair Crystal 280X RGB Tempered Glass microATX Mini-Tower MicroATX builds require a lot of research to ensure that all parts will fit into the case. For the build we've constructed here, the Corsair Crystal 280X is the case that will give us the space we need, with a little bit of breathing room for airflow and any adjustments that might need to be made. And RGB! Alternate: Whatever case that can fit your components! - Cases are perhaps the most subjective part of any PC build, taking into account both space and personal taste. So head to your local Micro Center, bring a tape measure, and check out our floor models!

The title of the thread has the word "guide" in it, but the information provided in the subject matter is so minimal and what is provided is questionable at times. Let's look at a few examples of questionable information: If you're building with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, you're going to want a processor to match that power, and AMD's Ryzen 7 5800 X is a stellar pairing. Delivering high-powered processing and overclocking potential without breaking the bank - just like the 3070 Ti. Calling out the 5800X for its "overclocking potential" is like recommending a Honda Civic for its racing potential. Overclockers are going to be disappointed, as will drivers of Honda Civics (no matter the size of the spoilers and how short you cut the exhaust). While it is true Ryzen processors are unlocked and can technically be overclocked, their "overclocking potential" is actually quite limited. You are dealing with a hard 142W PPT limit on the socket and an added EDC current limit that cannot be bypassed on ambient cooling. Those looking to squeeze out extra performance on Ryzen CPU's would be better off undervolting and utilizing PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and letting AMD's automatic tuning handle the rest with the added power overhead from the aforementioned undervolting. It seems silly to recommend a component for its "high-powered processing" and "overclocking potential" without actually explaining what makes the processor a great pick beyond marketing buzzwords. Features such as: Significantly higher cache sizes than their competition Higher cores/thread count at a lower price point Comparable IPC (Instructions Per Clock) performance in non-AVX instruction sets Just a few things that could easily be mentioned that realistically impact performance and would mean more on paper than just saying something along the lines of "it's fast and can overclock so we picked it". The centerpiece of our build is, of course, the new ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, featuring stellar ray-tracing capabilities, solid 1440p, 144hz gaming performance, and NVIDIA's suite of gaming tools. The 3070 Ti delivers 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames that the 1070 Ti could deliver. In other words: it's the card for our build. 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER at what? This feels like someone saw a marketing slide from a first party (Nvidia) and rolled with it instead of actually providing examples of areas in which the RTX 3070 Ti outperforms the RTX 2070 Super by 1.5x. Are we talking pure rasterization, or are we talking Raytracing performance? Given the limited number of raytracing titles, it's extremely important to clarify this here. At the very least, use the words "up to" to cover yourself. Blanket statements like these lead to disappointment when reality sets in and it doesn't offer 1.5x the performance of the previous 2070 Super. https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3070-ti-founders-edition In the review above, you'll notice that while some games offer that 1.5x performance boost over the RTX 2070 Super FE, some (like Far Cry 5) only offered a 15% performance boost in 1080p performance. In fact, of all of the recent AAA games they tested across the 3 most common resolutions (1080p, 1440p, 4K), we only saw 4 instances of the 3070 Ti achieving that 1.5x performance boost over the 2070 super. Those games were Assassins Creed Odyssey at 4K, F1 2020 at 1440p and 4K, and Total War: Warhammer II at 4k. That's 4 instances out of 21 testing methodologies. Sadly, so few people benchmark the 1070 Ti so I can't really verify if the claims of "2x the performance" are true, but it would still be wise to include "up to" just to be safe... Sure, you could go with a standard air cooler for your processor. But when you're building in a microATX case, space is a premium. Plus, you should really treat that fancy Ryzen 7 nice with a sweet AIO. Hence the NZXT Kraken M22. Featuring a single fan, it'll keep your processor cooler than a standard air cooler and take up less space in the process. Perfect for compact builds! This might be the most questionable claim in this "guide". Water cooling is still bound to the same laws of thermodynamics as air cooling. It's not going sub-ambient. If you want to claim it's more efficient for heat exchange to use water cooling then sure, there might be some agreeance here, but to blanketly state that a 120mm AIO will out-perform standard air coolers? That's just misinformation with no evidence to back it up. The benefits of water over air is thermal mass, being able to handle a higher thermal load and resulting in a lower temperature as a result. A 120mm lacks this distinct advantage as the thermal mass is no greater than that of your typical air coolers... Breaking this one up is going to be a bit difficult for several reasons. The Kraken M22 is among one of the lowest performing 120mm AIO's. Maybe only really beating Cooler Master's pump designs. While the pump-in-rad design is interesting, it does not aid in providing better thermals. 120mm radiators lack the thermal mass to be considered objectively better than mid-range air coolers. For the asking price of $85, this AIO gets absolutely destroyed by high-end air coolers for just $4 more such as the Phanteks PH-TC14PE which can be found readily available for $90. Lower end air coolers such as the Noctua NH-U9S can be found for as low as $70, will fit in the chassis and can be outfitted with 2 RGB fans to meet the aesthetic of this build while offering comparable performance to the M22. Here it is with 2 fans beating Cooler Masters 240mm AIO and running only 6C hotter than Corsair's 240mm AIO: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/noctua-nh-d9l-and-nh-u9s-cpu-cooler-review,9.html (The CPU in this review was tested under a 114W thermal load, the 5800X averages a 95W thermal load) When factoring in thermal performance of coolers, one can't just weigh thermal transfer between air vs water, but also the thermal transfer between the CPU die to the IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) and from the IHS to the CPU cooler. Ryzen's unique MCM (Multi-Chip Module) design has the CPU cores offset to a corner of the CPU substrate, meaning a water coolers jetplate and fin array won't be centered on the CPU cores, resulting in very inefficient cooling. We've seen this already with AIO's and custom water blocks not specifically designed for Ryzen's chiplet layout and the M22 is no exception. The claim that AIO's take up less space than air coolers is a bit subjective. They make air coolers that are designed to sit horizontally across the CPU socket rather than vertically. Notable examples would be the Cryorig C7, be quiet! Dark Rock TF and Noctua NH-L9a. These do not obstruct any DIMM slots or require any obstructive tubing to be visible while maintaining a low profile no thicker than a a 120mm AIO + fan combo. Seriously though, recommendations for thermal solutions shouldn't be taken lightly when giving people advice on systems, especially when one references "overclocking potential" earlier in the guide. That's just a recipe for disaster. RAM: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel 16GB of RAM is more than enough to handle pretty much anything you could put this little powerhouse through, but we've left two slots open if you decide you need to double your RAM to 32GB. And that splash of RGB will add a nice bit of style to the build. Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. I was impressed by the decision to choose 3600mhz memory for this review given how reliant AMD's Infinity Fabric is on memory speed, but I was disappointed to see the alternative recommendation deviate from this without explaining this loss in performance. There is zero mention of the compromise on frequency in exchange for capacity, nor any mention of the change from single rank to dual rank DIMM's and what that will do for memory training and manual overclocking should one choose to undertake that endeavor. We referenced the "overclocking potential" of the processor, and the memory controller is part of the processor after all. Dual rank DIMM's are harder to overclock, that is important to keep in mind. It's also important with Ryzen platforms in particular to be conscious of the memory IC's of the RAM you are recommending as some are far more compatible out of the box than others, especially true if one plans to overclock or populate all DIMM slots with dual rank DIMM's. There is also zero mentions of timings of any kind or the importance of lower latency memory in general. I guess I'd just like to see this fleshed out a bit more to explain the thought process behind why certain components such as the memory are recommended that extend beyond "I think this is more than you'll need, and also RGB!". That's just shallow on the surface and doesn't help me understand the thought process behind why I'd want these. Guides need less subjectivity and more objectivity, you feel me? Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Come on... It's hard to view this as a "guide" yet completely gloss over how one should go about finding the right power supply. At least link to resources about how to find the right size PSU, whether it be from the over-estimates provided by Nvidia or another source of knowledge with facts to back up their claims. Anything is better than "Just go with something modular". What about looking for important features like OCP (Over-Current Protection), OVP (Over-Voltage Protection), UVLO (Under Voltage Lockout), Thermal Monitoring/Throttling & RCP (Reverse-Connection Protection) to name a few. Features of arguably the most important component in a system that will protect the other components in a system from failing in the event something goes awry. If someone is reading a build "guide" (I am assuming the target audience is people that need assistance with choosing parts), at least explain the different types of PSU form factors and which one is compatible with the chassis you recommended. The last thing you want is someone buying a Flex ATX PSU for an ATX chassis, that wouldn't end well. I think that covers most of my issues with this guide. If I had any more feedback to provide, it would be to make it less formulaic and less like a marketing ad for the components themselves. Lean in to the technical side and give the reader something to walk away with other than the same guide over & over recommending RGB after RGB for the sake of RGB. To me, this looks no different than the build "guides" posted daily on pcpartpicker or pcgamer. In fact, the structure and writing style is almost identical to the point where it's difficult to tell the content apart. What better way to differentiate yourself and demonstrate a unique identity by actually diving into the hardware and educating your audience while guiding them on the components to consider for their builds. 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Likewise, we expected Ampere to deliver a meaningful gain in specifications and, by extension, performance compared to Turing. Most people did not anticipate that NVIDIA would shatter pricing expectations for the better, starting with the GeForce RTX 3070 for $499. Looking at the spec sheet and balancing it against the asking price, the GeForce RTX 3070 is poised to be one of the most popular graphics cards in years. That is not to say it is a cheap upgrade. However, on paper, it compares favorably to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which debuted at $999 two years ago (and $1,199 for the Founders Edition model). And it is well ahead of the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Super, both of which started at $699 when they came out. Here's a quick breakdown of the pertinent vitals: GeForce RTX 3070: 5,888 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (16Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,730MHz boost clock GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4,352 CUDA cores, 11GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 352-bit bus, 1,545MHz boost clock,  GeForce RTX 2080 Super: 3,072 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (15.5Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,815MHz boost clock GeForce RTX 2080: 2,944 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,710MHz boost clock The most important metric in those comparisons is the number of CUDA cores because they do most of the heavy lifting in 3D tasks, namely gaming (the intended task for these cards). Compared to the GeForce RTX 2080, NVIDIA doubled the number of CUDA cores in the GeForce RTX 3070, and the disparity between it and the Super variant is nearly double. What about the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti? It has a bit more memory and a wider memory bus, but fewer CUDA cores and a slower boost clock. We will have to wait for reviews (including our own) to objectively compare gaming performance between the $499 part and last generation's $999 card, but according to NVIDIA,  the GeForce RTX 2070 is simply the faster card. That's not hard to believe, based on the specifications alone. The only real question is, how much faster? Besides having more CUDA cores, the GeForce RTX 3070 will also benefit from Ampere's architecture improvements versus Turing (NVIDIA claims Ampere delivers a 1.9X performance per watt improvement over Turing). The kicker is the price, though. Even if the GeForce RTX 3070 proves to be only moderately faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, it will be a highly desirable card because of the cost. You could even make that argument if the two cards were tied in performance (which is unlikely to be the case). It would be like if NVIDIA had slashed the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti price in half before the new cards arrived. Such a move would have driven up demand immensely because, in the world of GPUs, you just don't get flagship performance for half a grand. The specs and performance potential gets even more eye-popping when comparing the GeForce RTX 3070 to the GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2070 Super. Have a look: GeForce RTX 3070: 5,888 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (16Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,730MHz boost clock GeForce RTX 2070 Super: 2,560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,770MHz boost clock,  GeForce RTX 2070: 2,304 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,620MHz boost clock Normally the disparity in specifications would render this an unfair comparison. In this case, the GeForce RTX 2070 debuted at $599, and the GeForce RTX 2070 Super launched at $499, the same price as the GeForce RTX 3070. So it's completely valid to pit them against one another. According to NVIDIA, the GeForce RTX 3070 is, on average, 60 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2070. Yet it costs $100 less than that card did at launch. Based on what we already know about NVIDIA's Turing lineup, we expect the GeForce RTX 3070 will be a beast in 1440p gaming and handle 4K resolution gaming in most titles (just maybe not always at 60 fps, depending on the game). As far as framerates go, all we have to go on at the moment is NVIDIA's own data. In Borderlands, NVIDIA claims the GeForce RTX 3070 tops 80 fps at 1440p, compared to about 50 fps for last generation's GeForce RTX 2070. And in a game like Control, with RTX enabled (meaning ray tracing and DLSS are engaged), NVIDIA has the GeForce RTX 3070 breaching the 100 fps mark at 1440p, versus around 70 fps for the GeForce RTX 2070. Those are significant gains. Folks, this is a dream scenario. The cynics among us could have envisioned the kind of performance gains, NVIDIA is claiming, with beefier specifications and an improved GPU architecture, but at a much higher price than $499. If the reviews hold up to NVIDIA's performance claims, the GeForce RTX 3070 could end up being the hottest selling graphics card this fall. It also presents a compelling reason to stick with PC gaming rather than jumping on board a next-generation console if you have to pick between one or the other.

I hear that they won't be LHR. I kind of want one just so I can recoup my spending by mining when I'm not gaming. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 2021 @PetaFajita just chiming in. No information yet on if we'll have the FE models. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Stitchless ✭ June 2021 I don't have the any source, but I thought that only Best Buy would carry the founders addition. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2021 The thing we really want to know is are the rumors true that the non Founders cards are going to cost $2,000 or more. I think the answer is no, but please let us know tomorrow before we wait all night and end up walking away from an absurdly priced card. I would rather buy from Microcenter than the Big Yellow store but I know they will have founders for $1,199. We deserve to know the price ranges for the cards you will have before we wait all night. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2021 Anyone else camping out the Saint Davids location? I'm about an hour away and heading there today after work. Been trying to get a card since last fall and I've given up hope with online drops.

Is Micro Center going to be charging fair market rate or are they going to be charging MSRP for the third party cards? Also, is there any idea of about how many cards will be available? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33086#Comment_33086 I wish that I had an answer to give you ahead of time! Sadly, the pricing for partner cards is still under NDA, and I don't know the amount that they will cost. I would expect it to be similarly priced, but that is just a guestimate. I'm making this guess based on the cost of the 3090 and the listed price of the FE cards in the article above. Q) How much do the 3080 Ti & 3070 Ti video cards cost? A) Up-to-date pricing for our cards will be posted on the website once they’re available. As soon as we're able to share the price, we'll update our site with this information! Please keep a close eye on our website! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33097#Comment_33097 We're expecting to have stock of both the 3080 ti and 3070 ti on their respective launch dates, however, we aren't certain of the specific quantity. If we're able to get a concrete number ahead of launch we'll share that! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33105#Comment_33105 By any chance do you know if there will be stock (not expecting you to know quantities of any) of standard 3080s or 3090s on drop day tomorrow as well or just 3080Ti? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2021 @Justin_Exploring It's quite possible, but I can't say anything with 100% certainty. We've been getting fairly regular shipments of several GPUs from both NVIDIA and AMD at this point. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Pricing being under NDA the day before the sale is ridiculous for the AIBs to be dictating. I would think Microcenter would have enough pull to demand a more reasonable NDA period. These AIBs are running things like the Wild West now and the consumers need somebody to stand up to them and say enough! If the AIBs are afraid to tell us how much they are going to charge then maybe they are gouging too much. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook rishiMukherjee ✭ June 2021 I bought a 3080 pre-build from micro center last weekend. Can I get the 3080 Ti instead and return 3080?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 We can't return individual components out of pre-builts, however if the early reviews that are going up are anything to go buy, you're really not losing much performance anyway. The price increase of a 3080ti vs a 3080 is definitely not worth the minor performance increase in comparison. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33109#Comment_33109 I think the NDAs are mostly dictated by NVIDIA, but I don't really know how that whole process works. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 Unfortunately not. We are not able to take components that were sold in a pre-built unit as exchanges for upgrade components. If you are looking to upgrade the RTX 3080, you can definitely explore purchasing a 3080 Ti to perform that upgrade though I would strongly recommend waiting for benchmarks to see if the performance difference warrants the price of the upgrade. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 2021 What are the chances of getting a 3070ti off of best buy right after release? My mom was gonna let me use her credit card and I was gonna stay up and try and get one for the computer I just built from parts at micro center. I don’t think she or anyone else I know would be willing to spent the night in a car or tent outside of micro center. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33114#Comment_33114 I think you would have to be extremely lucky. One good thing for you to know is that I sent my friend to Microcenter a few minutes ago to scope it out. There are only 5 people in line right now. Maybe you can go at like 4AM or something and still get one when the 3070ti comes out next week. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TKPJr2009 ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Will you'll be updating us on rather or not you'll will be selling Nvida founders edition RTX 3080ti  tomorrow and RTX 3070ti on June 10th .  I know you'll sold the founders edition RTX 3070 & RTX 3060ti when they released on Release day .

This morning they had 72 cards and I was #43 in line. I think going the afternoon before is a good target. Definitely don't expect to show up after Midnight and get a card. By Midnight there were more than 72 on the list. Also... the difference in price was big. The people at the end had to either pay $2,000 or leave. The first 40 or so paid $1,400 for almost the same quality card. I ended up paying 80 more because of my place in line but I can live with that. The less you care about the price the later you can go basically. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leesanction ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Anyone care to tell me their experience going to Micro Center in Westburry Ny long Island for the 3080ti launch? Im planning camping out there for the 3070ti launch. Want to see if its worth trying. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Fender007 ✭ June 2021 I’m from Los Angeles out in Houston for work. Can anybody share insight about how the launch was for the 3080ti? I would have to miss a half day of work to attempt to buy a card, but if they’re disorganized or anything like the Dallas location 3080ti launch I won’t even bother going there. You guys should YouTube it, I’m surprised people weren’t hurt. They should be doing it like the Ohio location, a list and constantly checking every hour or so to keep it fair and organized. Wow Dallas was the most unprofessional thing I have seen, looked like a scene in a movie. anybody with Houston insight I’d appreciate it thank you 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheFamousChrisA ✭ June 2021 I am curious how much the 3070 Ti will be if they were upcharging the 3080 Ti to almost $2,000 for people later in line. I've never heard of places charging more the later in line you are, but if I need to get to the Weston, Illinois location store at 4pm the day before I am fine with that. If there is a voucher or a way to make sure they keep my place in line I can camp outside in a lawn chair or wait in my car for a full day. I have no clue if Best Buy is going to do a 3070 Ti in-store launch like they did the 3080 Ti (which sucks because they did it at a store in Madison where I live and I had no clue about it, though $1,200 for a GPU is still ridiculous when I don't need basically a 3090). Any insight into how much money to bring and what time to get there the day before? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33272#Comment_33272 I am sorry, we do not have pricing on yet to release items, and it will vary by model. The price for video cards does not change dependent on where you are in line. The only thing that would dictate the price is the model and kind of video card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DonNephew1989 riverside ✭ June 2021 i want to know if the Micro Center in Tustin CA will get the RTX 3070ti on June 10? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 2021 Micro center support says that the 3070 Ti will launch at 10am when the store opens.

Let’s take a look at some benchmarks to see how well this card performed! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin June 2021 Recommendation and Test Bench We will be using the same test bench that we used in the 3080 Ti Review and Benchmark.   For our testbench, we’re using an open-air system with the following specs Intel 11700k ASUS P-Prime Z590 G.Skill Trident Z 32GB Ram ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti TUF OC Inland Premium 1TB SSD Lian Li Galahad 240mm We have an article if you are interested in another build that features the 3070 Ti as well.  This build is a Micro-ATX Build that features the same ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti TUF OC that we used for our benchmark.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin June 2021 Benchmarks No changes were made to the 3070 Ti, as we want to provide the most out-of-the-box performance for these benchmarks.  All games were set to their highest graphical settings. However, we did disable motion blur wherever possible.  MSI Afterburner was used as our performance monitoring tool when going through in-game benchmarks.  DLSS was not used for any games. Let’s start with one of my favorite games, Hitman 2!  We can see we are reaching a CPU Bottleneck in both 1080p and 1440p, getting to about 130FPS, which is similar to our 3080 Ti Review and Benchmark.  The CPU Bottleneck releases at 4K gaming, but it still maintains above 60FPS for those 4K 60Hz monitors.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.45ms | 1440p; 7.64ms | 4K; 13.19ms The 3070 Ti can handle one of our less demanding games, Civilization VI, even at 4K.  Pushing almost 190FPS in 4K, which in our opinion, is more than you will ever need in a turn-based game like Civilization VI. We are seeing a consistent 1% low across all resolutions, but this can be attributed to the 60FPS cap in menus as the benchmark ends.  Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 5.31ms | 1440p; 5.31ms | 4K; 5.28ms Our most demanding game when set at max settings, Borderland 3, put the 3070 Ti to the test.  While not the greatest performance we’ve ever seen, it still held up pretty well to one of the toughest benchmarks we have. It’s definitely more than playable at all resolutions! Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 8.23ms | 1440p; 11.15ms | 4K; 19.65ms Pretty high FPS counts for F1 2020.  The 3070 Ti performed wonderfully, hitting all significant points of monitors when it comes to average framerate, even the 4K 60FPS section, with the 1% low being above 60FPS.  1% lows on 1440p and 1080p were lower than I expected, but they are in line with how the 3080 Ti benched as well.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 4.47ms | 1440p; 5.03ms | 4K; 7.27ms Horizon Zero Dawn: the other demanding game in our benchmarking gauntlet. The 3070 Ti definitely put in work here.  Similar to our Borderlands 3 benchmark, the 3070 Ti isn’t perfect, but it is more than playable at max settings.  We may be some frames shy for 1080/1440p 144Hz monitors, but we are set up for 4K 60Hz for sure.    Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.49ms | 1440p; 8.80ms | 4K; 11.06ms Next up, our esports title, Rainbow 6 Siege!  Our least demanding game, as it is an esports title, designed to play on as many computers as possible.  We see close to 400FPS at 1080p and high FPS at both 1440p and 4K.  If you genuinely want the edge in your esports games, pair this card with 1080p 300+Hz monitors.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 2.53ms | 1440p; 4.82ms | 4K; 4.82ms 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin June 2021 edited July 2021 Conclusion The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is an excellent card for those wanting to dip their toes in 4K 60FPS gaming, but it really shines as a 1080p 144Hz and 1440p 120Hz gaming card. If you’re looking for higher refresh rate monitors with this card.The 3070 Ti is a fantastic compliment, especially if you adjust the settings slightly away from max.  If you are looking to get yourself a 3070 Ti or any other graphics card from us, please visit our Random Selection Process and FAQ for more information! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 2021 3070 Ti looking good! 👀 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

We’ll also be going over the major differences between some of the other offerings in MAINGEAR’s new lineup while we tear into the sleek gunmetal silver.   ●    Vector Pro 17” with 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU ●    Vector Pro 17” with 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU ●    Vector Pro 17” with AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU ●    Vector Pro 17” with AMD Ryzen 9 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU  ●    Vector Pro 15” with 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU ●    Vector Pro 15” with AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU Each version of the Vector Pro has its own unique set of specifications and internal features that make it stand out from its counterparts without sacrificing power or potential. We haven’t run thorough benchmarks on each of devices for direct comparisons, but we’d expect them to perform fairly comparably considering that each of these CPUs has 8 cores and 16 threads. You may find that some games or tasks perform more strongly with a specific brand of CPU depending on how the developers have designed their game or engine around specific hardware.   The real deciding factor for the visual performance differences in these two classes of laptops will be the GPU. MAINGEAR offers the RTX 3080 version of this device in only the 17-inch laptop. This is likely due to the thermal limitations when including such a powerful GPU in such a thin laptop. However, MAINGEAR did give us the option of an RTX 3070 in both the 15- and the 17-inch model. Both the Vector Pro 15 and Vector Pro 17 are incredibly engineered. The already sleek box gives way to even slimmer high-powered gaming laptops that feel incredibly portable and immaculately constructed. They wouldn’t even feel out of sorts in a workplace! Included in the box along with the Vector Pro is the Owner’s manual as well as a 230W power adapter. The 230W power adapter is a sign of just how powerful this laptop is. We touched in this in our review of the 17-inch Vector Pro, but these laptops are absolute powerhouses that require quite a bit of power to be able to deliver such incredible performance. One of the more notable differences between the 15- and 17-inch versions of these laptops is the display. They are both fantastic displays of different quality:   The 15-inch device offers a 15.6-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution and 240hz refresh rate while the 17-inch model offers a 17.3-inch display with a 2560x1440 resolution and 165hz refresh rate. With both models delivering well above the standard 60hz refresh rate, you’ll be able to experience incredibly smooth motion in games and in-office work, most noticeably while playing high-speed games and scrolling through documents or web pages.   All models offer the same array of ports and connections: three full-sized USB-A, an HDMI port, as well as a Type-C connector, meaning that you can easily connect multiple displays to your laptop as well as keyboard and mouse. All that to say, you can get a great desktop experience as well! One important note: On AMD models, the USB-C port doesn't support Thunderbolt 4 or previous versions.    Our bright studio lighting does a fair job at making the backlit keyboard look a bit dim, but we can assure you, the 4-Zone backlit keyboard offers a vibrant selection of colors that you can completely customize using the NODE Control Center software. Easily blend in at the office with a white backlight or stand out with a rainbow wheel of colors cycling across your fingertips. The MAINGEAR Vector Pro is a fantastic, high-end, premium gaming laptop, one deserving of a premium unboxing experience. And, as we’ve reviewed and opened more and more of these laptops, we have no issue saying that it lives up to that premium feel with high power gaming capabilities, lush screens, and sleek, portable designs.   More from the Micro Center Community: Looking for more information about laptops and the Vector Pro series?

Unfortunately, it appears that any new gear will be a 2021 event the way availability is going.   Core13 CUDA & Linux have moved me back into the Top200 (191) producers, but that won't last long as new clusters continue to popup.     1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ryau ✭✭✭✭✭ October 2020 I managed to find/borrow some old test parts and project leftovers from around the office and put together a new office heater: AMD 1700X ASUS Crosshair VI Hero 32 GB RAM & Intel 256Gb SSD ASUS 2070 ASUS 2080 1000W PSU I put it up online yesterday afternoon with the latest nvidia drivers and it's been cranking out some WUs and heating the office quite nicely. The CPU has 8 cores and 16 threads, so I created a 4 core CPU slot, leaving the rest to "manage" the GPUs. The 2070 runs at a toasty 84 degrees and the 2080 at a temperate 75. It went online around 6pm yesterday and boosted my PPD from around 2M to 3.5M. It'll be interesting to see a full 24hr total.

Bcarpenter2019 ✭ May 17 edited May 18 in General Discussion Hello, I currently do not have any graphics card in my build but I am looking to start gaming on my PC rather than my Xbox so I need to purchase one. Currently in my build I have an intel i7 10700K CPU, 2x 16GB DDR4 ballistix gaming memory, 1 Gammix S11 pro 1 tb SSD, Silverstone 700W 80+ Gold PSU, and a MPG Z490 Gaming Edge Wi-Fi motherboard. I’ve never had a graphics card before but I have heard of driver issues from previous generations. What GPU should I get. (I am thinking Nvidia  3070, 3070ti, 3080, or AMD 6700XT, 6800, or 6800XT).

The beauty of this generation, is that (in my opinion) the offerings from both sides are super competitive. I LOVE DLSS, but the open-source appeal of FSR 2.0 can't be denied. I personally think the AMD Link feature is ingenious, but I'll be damned if Nvidia hasn't got their streaming initiative/technology down-pat. Nvidia's Reflex feature definitely has AMD beat, as well. I would be most comfortable running a 3080 + 10700K on an 850 watt PSU, for that reason I would probably recommend a 3070 Ti or a RX 6800/XT, unless you're open to a new PSU. Before you buy anything, I would do research on the games you're interested in playing and which components those games are optimized for. Lastly, stop by your local Micro Center! The BYO team would love to help you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The reason for this is that your GPU processes data from your CPU and renders it in visual format for your eyes to view. If your GPU is not strong enough or missing entirely, it will negatively affect your computer’s performance and leave you with a visual experience that is less than desirable when it comes to gaming, animation, photography, and video editing. The trouble is it can be hard to get your arms around all the details that are involved in choosing the best graphics card for your unique needs. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry! This 2022 NVIDIA GPU Buying Guide will help you understand the best NVIDIA GPUs on the market today and how they can benefit your particular graphics performance needs on your PC. What is a GPU? GPU stands for graphics processing unit. A GPU is a processor designed for executing intensive graphics rendering functions. Complex graphics in applications such as video games and creative animation require individual frames to be rendered one at a time. In order to accomplish this, a large amount of processing power is needed. As a result, many PCs use a dedicated graphics card (GPU) that has memory available for exclusive use in functions involving complex graphics. NVIDIA GPU Feature: DLSS Many NVIDIA GPUs now feature a ground-breaking technology called DLSS, which stands for deep learning super sampling. Super sampling is an anti-aliasing function that smooths the rough edges that show up when a graphic is rendered. While anti-aliasing (AA) is nothing new, NVIDIA’s super sampling AA (SSAA) is able to render images at a significantly higher resolution and use the data to compensate for any gaps at the native resolution. In addition to the SSAA aspect of NVIDIA’s DLSS, there is also the deep learning aspect. By leveraging the power of machine learning, NVIDIA creates AI models with high-resolution scans. Once an AI model is created, NVIDIA’s super sampling kicks in to fill in the missing data. The end result of DLSS is one of the world’s most advanced graphics processing technologies enjoyed by gamers, creatives, and other high-performance users. Top NVIDIA GPUs for Gamers and Creatives For Gamers: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Cores: 5,888 Memory: 8 GB Memory Clock: 14 Gbps Power Connectors: 2x PCIe 8-pin Outputs: HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 is a high-end GPU that offers some of the best processing performance available on the market right now.

They may be able to provide an idea of when they receive shipments. To add on to this FAQ answer, I have seen some store locations post a sheet out front when they do not have cards at or before their specified raffle time. If there are no cards, there is not a raffle / QR code posted. Also, if cards are still available after the raffle, they may be purchased by customers in-store during regular business hours. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

MatTech ✭ September 2021 in Prebuilt PCs and Laptops G708 Specs: AMD Ryzen 7 5700G 3.8GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060Ti 8GB GDDR6; 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM; 1TB Solid State Drive ($1,800) G438 Specs: Intel Core i7 10700K 3.8GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6; 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM; 1TB SSD ($2,000) G900 Specs:AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 3.7GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6; 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM; 2TB SSD ($2,200) Use: Mostly gaming, first-person shooters which I would like to get about 100+ FPS at 1080p at regular settings. Games: Apex, CoD, Battlefield, Valorant. I am feeling the best bang for my buck is going to be the G900 for only a couple hundred more, plus I already have a 3070, which I can use the funds to upgrade to either AMD or 3080/90 GPU. Opinions? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Ian admin September 2021 Greetings! Out of those three, if budget is not an issue, I would go with the G900 like you were thinking. Mainly because of the processor - it's really future proof in case you wanted to stream / edit, etc. on top of gaming and it does have double the storage space already installed compared to other two. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin September 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/9671/powerspec-g708-vs-g438-vs-g900 I am not an impartial source given that I work with the team that engineers these systems, but of these 3, the G708 is probably my favorite from a technical design perspective. It is the first system we've released with both an AMD integrated graphics card enabled as well as an Nvidia dedicated GPU. This serves a very unique function for those interested in streaming their games while playing as they can use their AMD Vega graphics for their video streaming and their Nvidia GPU for their gameplay without suffering any performance penalties. That $1800 budget is deceptive as it punches well above its weight class because of this design (assuming you intend to take advantage of this type of streaming). As @Ian stated, if money isn't a concern, the G900 is technically the fastest among the three systems and has the most upgrade headroom. The motherboard would support the 16 core 5950X while the G438 would top out at the 8 core 11900K (or 10 core 10900K from last generation). Factor in AMD's IPC gains, you'd have similar gaming performance while AMD would come out on top in multi-threaded workloads due to the sheer core advantage. It should also be noted that the G708 shares the same upgradability as the G900, supporting up to a 5950X and the same max memory configuration. I you wanted to start out saving $400 and upgrade later, it's still a very solid option. My biggest question to you would be: Do you already have a decent monitor, keyboard and mouse, and have you already factored them into your budget? If not, the $400 you save going with the G708 could go towards those peripherals. Just something to think about. At the end of the day, I am proud of all 3 of these models and I am sure you'd be satisfied with any one of them, especially for 100+ FPS on the gaming titles you've requested. I'd even wager 1440p would be easy to push at those framerates with these 3 systems. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Many different factors need to be considered while buying PC parts: budget, power, compatibility between components, and more all need to be considered. The most critical decision made in the PC building process is selecting a graphics card, which is necessary for gamers hoping to build a PC capable of playing all of the newest video game releases. Graphics cards can vary wildly in price, from lower-end models at around $200 to higher-end ones that can cost upwards of $1,000. Both Nvidia and AMD's newest line of graphics cards have finally launched and are now available for purchase at all major retailers. And while Nvidia's cards in the past have been considered to be the best around, AMD's most recent offerings are said to have comparable specs and pricing. Today we'll look at the newly released graphics cards from both companies and see which might be the best GPU for your next PC build.   Nvidia or AMD On September 1, 2020, Nvidia unveiled the long-awaited RTX 30 Series graphics cards: the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070. Each model launched excels within their tier and has incredible specs. Nvidia advertised the RTX 30 Series as the most significant generational leap for its history, being anywhere from 70-100% faster than the RTX 20 Series, depending on the task. Comparatively, AMD decided to announce its respective line of graphics cards a bit later in the year, with a formal announcement taking place on November 1, and staggered the release of the cards over a month (RX 6800 Series on November 18, and RX 6900 XT on December 8). The graphics cards have been described as being able to compete with Nvidia's offerings directly, but we'll take a look at specs next to see for ourselves.   GeForce RTX 3070 Starting with Nvidia's lower-end offering, the GeForce RTX 3070 is the cheapest graphics card out of the six cards discussed today at only $499. And though it's the most affordable, the card certainly doesn't lack in terms of power. Equipped with a GA104 graphics processor, this card is more than capable of running all modern games, with guaranteed support for advanced features like ray-tracing. Compared to 2018's model, the GeForce RTX 2070, the 3070 offers a higher performance of up to 45 percent. The RTX 3070 is a dual-slot card and draws up to 220 W of power. It's worth noting that this graphics card does not have RGB lighting of any sort, so fans of that sort of thing might a tad be disappointed. This card's overall presentation could have been a lot better, as the GeForce RTX logo is smaller and more out of the way than this year's other models and even the 20-Series of cards. With all of that out of the way, let's move on to the card's performance. The RTX 3070 handles most games great, with titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Doom Eternal, and Red Dead Redemption 2, each running exceptionally well at 1080p resolution at maximum settings, with average frame rates of 115, 287, and 95, respectively. At 1440p resolution at maxed-out settings, Horizon Zero Dawn still hits a high frame rate of 91 fps, while Doom Eternal hits an average of 204 fps, and Red Dead 2 averaging 77 fps. And finally, while running games at 4K resolution with maxed out graphical settings, the RTX 3070 still holds its own, though many new games are unable to stay at 60 frames per second or above. Horizon Zero Dawn only hits an average of 55 fps, and at its worst, dipping down to 51 fps. Doom Eternal fares much better, with it still reaching an average of 115 fps, but similarly to Horizon, the very demanding Red Dead Redemption 2 only manages to hit an average of 50 fps, with it dipping as low as 43 fps. Pretty much all modern games are playable with the RTX 3070; however, it won't hit 60 fps or higher when in 4K. Pros: ●     Very fairly priced ●     Exceptional performance Cons: ●     Lacking a bit in presentation, no RGB ●     Struggles with handling 4K for some titles  GeForce RTX 3080 The GeForce RTX 3080 is even more potent than the already impressive RTX 3070, with it based on the GA102 graphics processor. Like the RTX 3070, this card supports many advanced graphical features such as ray-tracing. The GPU operates at a frequency of 1440 MHz and can be boosted up to 1710 MHz. Power consumption-wise, this card has a power draw rated at 320 W maximum, which is a full 100 watts more than the RTX 3070. While not quite as power-demanding as its big brother, the RTX 3090, this GPU still consumes quite a lot of power compared to other graphics cards on the market. The card easily handles games running at 1080p resolution with maxed out settings, with recent titles like Watch Dogs Legion, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, and Doom Eternal, each hitting an average of 90 fps, 149 fps, and 331 fps, respectively. When gaming in 1440p resolution, the RTX 3080 continues to kick butt with Watch Dogs Legion hitting an average of 74 frames-per-second, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War achieving 138 fps on average, and Doom Eternal averaging 254 fps. Finally, when playing games in a native 4K resolution, we start to see the RTX 3080 struggle a bit more in some of the more demanding titles. While Doom Eternal and Black Ops: Cold War can both comfortably hit above the 60 fps mark, with each averaging 148 fps and 110 fps, other games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Watch Dogs Legion don't fare quite as well; the former barely reaches 60 fps average, while the latter only hits an average of 48 fps. With all of this said, the card still managed to keep relatively cool temperatures thanks to its high-quality fans. Overall, the RTX 3080 runs nearly everything you might throw at it incredibly well, despite a few games that fell short of the ideal 60 fps average. Pros: ●     Excellent 4K performance, with a couple of exceptions ●     Low temperatures ●     No price increase over RTX 2080 Cons: ●     High power consumption ●     A bit expensive GeForce RTX 3090 Nvidia's RTX 3090 is a truly impressive piece of hardware, packing in some immense graphical power made only for the most hardcore of PC gamers. This graphics card is enormous, with its dimensions of 336 mm x 140 mm x 61 mm. Comparing it to the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti, which launched in 2018, it becomes immediately apparent just how large this card truly is. This card won't fit in most slim PC cases without additional modifications, as its size is larger than most graphics cards on the market. The GPU operates at a frequency of 1395 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1695 MHz and supports variable-rate shading, ray-tracing, and more for all current and future games. Beware that this GPU is incredibly power-hungry; it is a triple-slot card, meaning that the RTX 3090 draws power from 1 x 12-pin power connector and has a power drawing rate of up to 350 W maximum, which is 30 W more than the RTX 3080 and 130 W more than the RTX 3070. This card is also incredibly expensive, costing more than twice the amount of the RTX 3080. The RTX 3090 performs incredibly well, as one might expect, given its high-end nature. This card runs any games in 1080p with max settings without even breaking a sweat, with recent titles like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War averaging 90 fps and 260 fps, respectively. The card handles 1440p gaming similarly, with Valhalla averaging around 80 fps and Black Ops Cold War averaging 206 fps. Finally, when taking a look at the RTX 3090's performance while running games in native 4K resolution, it still does incredibly well: Black Ops Cold War hits an average of 128 fps, while another popular shooter from 2020, Doom Eternal, manages to hit 171 fps average. The more demanding Assassin's Creed Valhalla still hits an average of 60 fps, with it just barely dipping under 60 occasionally. Pros: ●     Fastest gaming chip available ●     Excellent cooling Cons: ●     Very expensive ●     Incredibly power-hungry ●     Massive size, won't fit in slim PC cases   Radeon RX 6800 The Radeon RX 6800 is the first of three graphics cards to come from AMD this year, as part of their "Big Navi" trio of cards. This card comes in at $579, which isn't too high of a price considering the power that it packs. The RX 6800 is based on the Navi 21 graphics processor, which supports DirectX 12 Ultimate just like the Nvidia cards, and as a result, it too supports hardware ray-tracing, which is a first for AMD's cards. The card has 60 ray-tracing acceleration cores and 16 GB GDDR6 memory connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The RX 6800 is a dual-slot card and has a power draw rated at 250 W maximum, slightly more than the RTX 3700. This card also cools very well, hitting just 71 degrees C during the most intense times, which is cooler than any other GPUs released this year by either company. The RX 6800 performs excellent, with no issues with running any titles in 1080p; this similarly is the case when running games in 1440p, with recent titles like The Division 2 and Dirt 5 hitting average framerates of 86 fps and 66 fps, respectively. The card does falter a bit when attempting to play some more demanding titles, however. 2019's Control could only manage to reach an average of 40 fps in 1440p and an embarrassingly low average of 20 fps in 4K resolution. A handful of other titles performed similarly, illustrating that the RX 6800 isn't quite as powerful as some may hope. Still, for under $600, this GPU is by no means terrible.   Pros: ●     Great cooler ●     First AMD card to have ray-tracing ●     Low power consumption Cons: ●     More expensive than RTX 3070 ●     Performance is behind the competition in some areas   Radeon RX 6800 XT AMD's middle child--the Radeon RX 6800 XT--is an impressive piece of hardware comparable to Nvidia's RTX 3800 and costs $60 less. This card is based on the Navi 21 graphics processor and 16 GB GDDR6 memory and operates at 1825 MHz, boosted up to 2250 MHz. Like the RX 3800, this GPU features ray-tracing among a host of other new features. This feature alone gives owners of last-gen AMD cards a reason to upgrade to this model. This card draws up to 300 W of power, making it a tad bit more power-hungry than its little brother, the RX 6800 but still more power-efficient than Nvidia's RTX 3800. Visually, the card also has an excellent presentation, with a striking looking logo on the front of the card along with some very nice looking RGB lighting. Looking at performance, the RX 6800 XT fares very well versus Nvidia GPUs. Running Red Dead Redemption 2 in 1440p resolution, for example, the 6800 XT hits an average of 116 fps with a more consistent frame rate overall and never dipping lower than 90 fps. The same title manages to hit an average of 71 fps when bumped up to 4k resolution, which unfortunately is lower than both the RTX 3090 and 3080. This is somewhat of a theme for the RX 6800 XT; whereas it exceeds its competition when running games in 1440p, it doesn't quite stack up to others when playing many titles in native 4K. For those looking for a great graphics card with a competitive price and outstanding 1440p performance, this might be the best GPU of choice. But for 4K gaming, it isn't quite as good as other options. Pros: ●     Competitive pricing ●     Very consistent frame rates for many games ●     Low power consumption ●     Nice presentation Cons: ●     Inconsistent performance across titles ●     Performance is behind the competition in some areas   Radeon RX 6900 XT Last but not least, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is the beefiest of AMD's 2020 line of graphics cards. Launching at a price tag of $999, the 6900 XT is the most expensive from AMD, yet it still comes in at $500 cheaper than the RTX 3900. Like the 6800 and 6800 XT, this card also supports ray-tracing with 80 ray-tracing acceleration cores but additionally features 5120 shading units, 320 texture mapping units, and 128 ROPs. Like the 6800 XT, this card operates at 1825 MHz, which can be boosted to 2250 MHz. Taking a look at its performance, the Radeon RX 6900 XT is very impressive on several fronts, rivaling and even beating competing cards in some respects, but still falls short when it comes to other features like ray-tracing. The Big Navi is the first set of cards by AMD that have supported ray-tracing, and as a result, they feel a bit behind Nvidia GPUs in that regard. Looking at highly demanding games like Watch Dogs Legion and Control, it's clear that the GPU struggles with keeping up with competing cards, with frame rates for both titles sitting at only around 40 fps while running at a 1440p resolution. On the other hand, the card handles many other games like Death Stranding better than any other card market, though the difference is only marginal. While the RX 6900 XT is a great card that runs most games brilliantly, it isn't far ahead of AMD's 6800 and 6800 XT and is ideal for PC gamers that want better performance without entirely breaking the bank on the RTX 3090. Pros: ●     Best in class performance for a handful of games ●     Power-efficient Cons: ●     Only marginally superior to the 6800 XT ●     Ray-tracing doesn't stack up to Nvidia GPUs ●     Expensive   Table of Specs     Graphics Card RX 6900 XT RX 6800 XT RX 6800 RTX 3090 RTX 3080 RTX 3070 Architecture Navi 21 XTX Navi 21 XT Navi 21 XL GA102 GA102 GA104 Process Technology TSMC N7 TSMC N7 TSMC N7 Samsung 8N Samsung 8N Samsung 8N Transistors (Billion) 26.8 26.8 26.8 28.3 28.3 17.4 Die size (mm^2) 519.8 519.8 519.8 628.4 628.4 392.5 SMs/CUs 80 72 60 82 68 46 GPU cores 5120 4608 3840 10496 8704 5888 Infinity Cache (MB)/ Tensor Cores 128 128 128 328 272 184 Ray Accelerators/RT Cores 80 72 60 82 68 46 Base Clock (MHz) 1825 1825 1700 1395 1440 1500 Boost Clock (MHz) 2250 2250 2105 1695 1710 1725 VRAM Speed (Gbps) 16 16 16 19.5 19 16 VRAM (GB) 16 16 16 24 10 8 VRAM Bus Width 256 256 256 384 320 256 ROPs 128 128 96 112 96 96 TMUs 320 288 240 328 272 184 TFLOPs FP32 (Boost) 23 20.7 16.2 142 119 81 Bandwidth (GBps) 512 512 512 936 760 512 TDP (watts) 300 300 250 350 320 220 Dimensions (mm) 278x107x50 278x107x50 278x107x 39 336x140x61 285x112x38 242x112x38 Weight (g) 1505 1504 1389 3279 1355 1260 Release Date Dec 2020 Nov 2020 Nov 2020 Sep 2020 Sep 2020 Oct 2020 Price $999 $649 $579 $1,499 $699 $499   Conclusion So at the end of the day, which GPU should you purchase? Well, that entirely depends on what you're looking for in a graphics card. If you're hoping to play all the latest games at the highest graphical settings and have a large budget, then you might want to check out either AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT or Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090. But keep in mind that these cards are only for those looking for the absolute best performance out there, as they aren't the most cost-effective. If power isn't everything and you would instead prefer saving a bit of money, then the GeForce RTX 3080 or the Radeon RX 6800 XT may be better options. The GeForce RTX 3070 and Radeon RX 6800 are even less powerful and the least expensive out of Nvidia and AMD's newest GPUs and are still compelling pieces of hardware that are the most cost-efficient. Overall, Nvidia and AMD's newest graphics cards each have their merits, and the best card for you depends on your budget and personal computing needs.     1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Scar ✭ January 2021 Yes those cards are a great idea. Oh wait there is non in stock. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook sixsixtysix ✭ January 2021 Why the hell can't I buy a product online, as it says in stock, and pick-it up in shop? I'm not going to travel all the way across the metro only to find it sold out. Fix up or find out. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 2021 Hello, @sixsixtysix Welcome to the community! Are you referring to an RX 6000 Series card? If so, the reason would be that we have many customers waiting outside of our store for us to open. Typically we would allow these items to be reserved for in-store pick up, however, due to the limited availability at this time we do not have the stock to be able to offer this. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you're looking to reserve an RX 6000 series, once we start to receive a more adequate volume of these GPUs we will enable this feature again. Otherwise, I'd recommend that you stop by our store directly if you are interested in purchasing an RX 6000 series card. I hope this info helps! If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheRob ✭ March 2021 Goodmorning microcenter people, I need some helo upgrading GPUs, and the only way I can upgrade is by going to the store directly as I want the gigabyt 3080. Does microcenter boston receive shipments of these on tuesdays? Its my only day off during the week so its the only day I have to wait.  Thank you for your help! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin March 2021 edited March 2021 Hello @TheRob Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community! I see you are trying to get a Gigabyte 3080. Our Micro Center's do get shipments frequently, however we do not know what is on those shipments and a 3080 may or may not be on those shipments. The main thing however, is if that shipment does have Gigabyte 3080s, it is likely to be sold out instantly to the customers waiting at the store during the day or when we open in the morning. You're best bet is being at the store, towards the front of the line. We are using a Voucher System that allows customers at the front of the line to get a card once we know what our stock is looking like. More information can be found here; Limited Availability Products FAQ. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Rhamnetin ✭ June 2021 This is some incredibly biased propaganda. I mean, it says this about the RX 6800 XT: "Pros: Very consistent frame rates for many games Cons: Inconsistent performance across titles" This does not portray the truth that AMD and NVIDIA are generally very competitive with one another (it only points out that AMD loses at times, not that NVIDIA also has its fair share of losses) or that the RX 6800 generally outperforms the RTX 3070 by a considerable margin. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2021 I don't disagree with you @Rhamnetin I think that Ben's perspective here is quite subjective. I'd agree that both brands offer a very competitive performance across a wide range of performance categories. I think the pros and cons above could be applied to almost any GPU upon initial release. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

We’re going to be taking a look at how it performs and offer some in-game benchmarks that you can use as a comparison and better help you make a clear choice as to whether or not you should be upgrading your GPU.  For these benchmarks, we’re using the same base system that we used in our review of the GeForce RTX 3070 - the Maingear Vybe 2, but with a GeForce RTX 3060. The Vybe 2 has an AMD Ryzen 3900X and 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory. We chose a system with a lot of headroom on the CPU and RAM to avoid bottlenecks. Since NVIDIA has not released a reference version of the GeForce RTX 3060, we used the ASUS RTX 3060 TUF Gaming OC. We chose a few recent titles as well as some that were a bit older to show the performance across a variety of games that you may own or consider playing. As always, If you think of a game with a built-in benchmark that we should add to our list, let us know what you’d like to see in future discussions! Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 13.00ms | 1440p; 18.28ms | 4k; 39.10ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 10.63ms | 1440p; 15.91ms | 4k; 23.41ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 14.20ms | 1440p; 16.21ms | 4k; 39.95ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.65ms | 1440p; 9.30ms | 4k; 13.55ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 8.34ms | 1440p; 8.53ms | 4k; 16.31ms First impressions of the GeForce RTX 3060 are solid. The ASUS TUF OC model was extremely quiet; even under max load with high temperatures, it never exceeded 57 degrees Celsius. While the GeForce RTX 3060 is definitely not a graphics card with 4K gaming in mind, it can handle 1440p gaming in several titles. If you're gaming at 1080p, you're more than set to have a great time. What are your thoughts on the performance of the 30 series GPUs? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

However, every time I pick a motherboard, lots of compatibility issues pop up with the processor (BIOS), case, and Power supply. For the BIOS, I know I can manually fix that, but for the others I'm no so sure. Can someone let me know about a motherboard that works with the rest of my build? Here's the list: Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU Cooler: NXZT Kraken X53 RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32 GB Storage: Samsung 980 Pro 1 TB Graphics Card: Geforce RTX 3070 Power Supply: NZXT C750 Gold Case: NZXT H510 Elite Thanks in advance. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer Ian admin January 29 Answer ✓ Greetings.

I can't seem to get them gone. When I turn on the PC i don't get any signal connection to the monitor. I have the latest BIOS from online and have tried to update the BIOS but it blinks 3 times and I get a solid Light but it never goes out, after 15 mins. I have removed the Battery and reset with a metal screwdriver, with PC turned off and unplugged. Next step is taking the whole damn thing to Microcenter and see if they can fix it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin February 2021 @SmoloTHEKloWn Boot debug will be lit if there's nothing to boot to. So that's normal on a new build, until you insert your Windows 10 flash drive and attempt to install an OS. For the VGA debug, you've got a 5600X and didn't list a GPU. The 5600X doesn't have an APU and you will need a discrete graphics card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
