The RTX 3080 graphics card was recently listed for sale. The speculation in prices has displeased many people. I sincerely recommend that you take your time with the purchase. Wait a bit. On the one hand, you will wait until the normal price returns. On the other hand, you can wait and see the AMD RX 6000 graphics card. The latest news is more optimistic.
There has been a lot of news about the RX 6000 graphics card lately, and it has everything there is to say about its performance. The flagship RX 6900XT seems to be able to match the RTX 3090 graphics card. However, this is a bit overhanging and it would be wiser to test the RTX 3080 graphics card.
Recent revelations from a netizen are similar: he said there is an RTX 3080-compatible RDNA2 graphics card. The price is cheaper and the performance is better, about 5% higher.
More importantly, its power consumption is only 280W, which is much lower than the 320W of the RTX 3080 graphics card.
He also mentioned that the architecture of the CU / SP in the large Navi family will be changed and there are some differences in bandwidth. CUDA performance like the RTX 30 series graphics cards can double, but that doesn’t mean actual performance will actually double.
In addition, the RX 6000 series has many technical upgrades supporting lossless AA anti-aliasing, nano subsurface special effects, and NCSN (Conditional Noise Estimation Network). The latter two technologies are unknown and must be implemented in a new architecture. NCSN seems to be related to AI acceleration.
In general, this discovery is not so exaggerated and reasonable compared to previous disclosures, but it still stimulates Alyushek. The performance is slightly higher than that of the RTX 3080 video card, but the power consumption is lower and the key is cheaper. Can it achieve RTX 3080 performance without 5K? Imagination space is really not small, just watch the changes.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards will also get a lot of memory
More and more details about the Radeon RX 6000 video cards appear on the Web. This time, data on the amount of memory has appeared, and they are encouraging.
According to the well-Known insider Rogame on Twitter, the promising model of the Radeon RX 6000 line based on the Navi21 GPU. It will receive 16 GB of video memory, and the model based on Navi22. RX 6000 will have 12 GB of memory. These data, according to an insider, are confirmed. Presumably, Navi22 will act as an alternative to the GeForce RTX 3060, and Navi21 will compete with the RTX 3070.
I've now got confirmation for both :
> Navi21 16GB VRAM
> Navi22 12GB VRAM
I have no idea if these are full die or cut down SKUs

According to rumors, the performance of the Radeon RX 6000 will not be inferior to the performance of the GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards. But the new products from AMD will be slightly cheaper. By the way, yesterday Gigabyte confirmed three promising Nvidia RTX 30 graphics cards:
- GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB,
- GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB,
- and GeForce RTX 3060 8 GB.
As far as Roagme is concerned, it’s a trusted insider. For example, earlier he was one of the first to predict a RedmiBook based on AMD Ryzen 4000 processors.
