You can select the game, see the results as tested by AMD themselves. I give them full credit for adding numbers to their bar graphs, and being fairly open on their testing too. Still, I trust the 3rd party reviewers to give these a thorough going over.

I am intrigued at the SAM stuff, and also how well the on die cache will work. Since I have the X570 board, and will buy a 5900X CPU I am curious to see the 3rd party reviewers take on how well the Smart Access Memory works. Their graphs look impressive, but I am wary of the results.

Wow. I need to know more and how accurate this is. According to those chards...IF 'sam' is making that big a difference to bring the 6800xt within spitting distance of the 3090...Holy smokes ecosystem lock-in performance is amazing, but is scary, too.

Proprietary technologies never end up good for the consumer...

Wow is right. That is some serious performance per $ if independantly repeatable. Sounds great on paper...

yeah I am full on waiting for benchmarks now. I know I would regret paying the going rate for a non-reference 3080 only to have it beat by ~900 6800XT.
