    Two new Radeons compliment AMD’s simultaneous 3rd-gen Ryzen launch, but do they have the performance it takes to keep up with Nvidia’s RTX SUPER cards, or are they just hot air?

                              NGL I was pretty sketched out with this Anthony guy at first but watching a bit further and I really like him. I love the more technical breakdowns, would love some longer podcast type things where he goes into the nitty gritty of GPU logic for reviews.

                                  Have you guys recorded anything showing the issues with the 5700xt crashing, stuttering, and underperforming? Outside of the heat issue I'm seeing a ton of people complaining about this on AMD forums.

                                    @Gerard W. Yea. Within a couple months things will probably be okay on the XT. Nvidia just makes so damn much more money they can test this stuff better prior to launch. I count myself among the lucky as my most played game is FFXIV and it's one of my few games that use this card well currently.

                                    Kris Ko I get u, cuz I’m also having “growing pain” issues with my Zen 2 platform. This is my first AMD build [Been using Intel since single core Pentium 4s) and now I’m reluctant to also jump ship to Radeon...

                                    @Gerard W. I have the 5700xt and I doubt they'd refund it to me as the AMD policy is you can only refund without opening it I believe. Just going to have to wait it out and learn my lesson. 15 years since using AMD and this will be the last time.

                                    @Kris Ko well, I guess u can wait for everything to settle then make your decision. Or u can get Nvidia and be satisfied with what you get.

                                          I hate saying this, but I wouldnt buy the toasters from AMD and would actually go with the Super crap from team green, even if I am supporting the bad guy with my wallet, if I was buying today.

                                          That being said, I dont know how AMD is going to be able to get ahead, if they keep with this toaster card trend, and would like to see them do something about it.

                                          Why not let board partners go crazy with their own cooler designs?

                                            While the video is good i think Anthony is kind of wasted doing this. It's a relatively boring video (a bunch of numbers) and Anthony doesn't do the fake funny stuff as well as some other hosts.

                                            I'd say it'd be best to let Anthony do the really, REALLY nerdy stuff. WAN show, Talklinked, hardcore videos (Hackintosh and the like). And let him loose on stuff like that! Do the nitty gritty stuff!

                                            And like Daniel said, that voice is gold. Anthony needs to do videos where a ton of spoken information and opinion is given, not just a bunch of graphs commented.

I wish you luck with your amd purchase, especially after watching several youtubers burn up 3900x's and 5700xt's..
