    At long last, AMD has announced when it will unveil its RDNA 2 "Big Navi" Radeon RX 6000 GPUs: October 28. With any luck, they'll be competitive with nvidia's GeForce RTX 30- series up to the 3070 or 3080.

    And as an aside, AMD has also announced that it will unveil Zen 3 Ryzen 4000 CPUs on October 8.

    This fall, we're getting a new GPU generation from nvidia, a new GPU generation from AMD, a new CPU generation from AMD, a new Xbox generation, and a new Playstation generation. I'd say gamers are about to be spoiled rotten. (Now, if only Nintendo would announce a Switch Pro :vbwink:)

    I don't have high hopes for AMD winning the performance crown, but if they get the RX6000 more power efficient than the RTX3000 the new mobile lineup could become very interesting this Spring.

    It's safe to say this is an exciting time for gamers and technology in general. In fact, I can't remember the last time things got this heated.
    There are some sketchy leaked benchmarks for Nvidia's RTX 3000 series, and though they look good, anyone with money to spend on hardware would probably serve themselves best by waiting for AMD's announcement.

    I was 100% sure I was going to try to nab a 3080 on launch day. It might be for the best if that doesn't pan out, probably will end up having to wait until AMD releases their volley in that case anyway.

    I still have my 2070, so I'm not super hurting, I'd just like to get it before Cyberpunk, but I know if I can't score one before then I'm going to play it anyway on the 2070.. I'd really rather not though..

    My totally unsolicited advice is to wait for AMD's announcement, just in case it allows you to get a better deal in the long run :)

    My thinking exactly basically in regards to Cyberpunk and RT enabled WoW xpac @ 4k. In the end, I'll still play both on whatever is in the box. I'd even limp along and play it on my laptop during that time if I was in between cards.

    We can guess all we want.

    Personally I'm not interested in 3090 levels of performance at >350w, but in power efficient performance that can seep down in mobile gpus.
