    RT is the biggest con going, i love high FPS. :D

    It's good fast paced fun, you should give it a go. Typical COD games, not everyone's cup of tea as it is so unrealistic but i like the fast paced run and gun style.

    That was just captured using Radeon Software. It was recorded in 4K, but YouTube is taking ages to make that format available and it's butchered it so far at 1080p. :p

    I would rather use a capture card to be honest for the extra quality and to avoid the performance hit of recording, but i can't justify the cost of the 4K Elgato card at the moment.

    EDIT Plus i only have 1x HDMI port on the Merc so I'm not sure i could use the Elgato anyway.

    But RT isn't the biggest con going, perhaps it is for willy waving as it effects fps.

    Waste of damn hardware on AMD, they should have just binned it and put more raster units in to *really* embarrass Nvidia ;) :D

    It really is. Minor image quality improvement for a huge performance cost. Some games even look better with it off.

    Until the above changes, it will always be a con in my eyes. Subjective of course, but I see I'm far from the only one with this opinion based off reading the various Cyberpunk thread here.

    Hey LtMatt, the 2340 is working great, thanks! I never really considered just locking the fan speed at a lower RPM, always had it on auto. The Phantom has 3 120mm 3000mm fans, that thing gets pretty loud when they ramp up... Hot spot/junction temp peaks around 92°, usually in the 80°s and the core is about 70°.

    Sounds perfect. As long as junction is below 110c, you are golden. :)

    Unfortunately, I heard these cards are not recommended due to poor performance with Ray Tracing and no DLSS?

    Thats if you actually think DXR is worthwhile (for what i play, it certainly isnt) , and DLSS? I prefer native resolution not 1080p upscaling

    Can you be more specific.

    Do you loose fps with this card when turning on Ray Tracing ? Can you even turn on DLSS?
