Hi,

 

as the shipment of my HP Reverb G2 ist getting closer and AMD, Intel and NVidia came up with all their new stuff i think it's time for me to build a new rig.

I'm quite sure i'm going with AMD on the CPU, but i'm still thinking about the GPU.

My thoughts about the GPU at the moment are the following:

 

The 2 displays of the Reverb G2 with 2160 x 2160 each might be hungry at VRAM and from my experience DCS likes a good chunk of VRAM for textures too. The RX 6800 XT will comes with 16GB while the RTX 3080 only comes with 10GB and AMD offers memory sharing between the CPU and the GPU which might enable something like tranparently swapping VRAM by the driver to the RAM in the future.

 

Are these assumptions allright or did i miss something or get something wrong ?

 

Regards Buzzer

Were i in your shoes , i'd definitely get the 6800xt . Quite aside from the (possible) benefits of direct-to-memory , it's gonna take Nvidea a while to react and rush out an answer to that card .

Veni, vidi, vici

 

HP mailed me that my Reverb G2 should arrive next monday, so i just bought a 3090 and a 5950x today. Shipping for the 3090 is announced for the end of the week, for the 5950x i don't have a shipping date yet.

Until the 5950x arrives i'll overclock the watercooled Ryzen 3100 to gain some speed.

 

So the rig is/will be:

 

- MSI x570 Unify

- AMD Ryzen 3100 ( to be replaced with Ryzen 5950x, shipping date unknown )

- G.Skill 128 GB DDR4-3200

- EVGA GTX960 4GB OC SSC ( to be replaced by the weekend with a MSI RTX3090 Ventus 3x OC 24GB DDR6X)

- Samsung 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 1TB SSD

- LG 43 UN700-B

- ( HP Reverb G2 by next monday)
