1-10% apparently. I think it will all make more sense when the new CPUs come out and we get tests.Quote

Wow, the 6800XT actually is really close to the 3090. Not many have been talking about the new Smart Access Memory and how much it helps these new cards.Quote

I have a question for you all, since you all seems to be much more educated than myself at this and yes, I'm sorry, but I've gotten ill and have no energy these days, so don't bother looking up on Google, since won't have energy to read through it all. So excuse me on that front and apologies if anyone gets offended by me asking here.

But as many have pointed on these new AMD GPUs, especially in comparison to the Nvidia cards, DLSS - What does it really do and do you really need it? As in I'm wondering if it's worth enough to get your hands on a 3000 series card due to this technology, or if it's not essential and hence go with AMD?

Also, as far as I'm aware, most monitors these days that supports G-Sync, also supports FreeSync. Since not many monitors today have a physical module for G-Sync, due to being more competitive with FreeSync. But how much of a difference is there between the two today? Thinking regarding the LG 27GN950 and between an 3080 and 6800/6900XT?Quote
