• CONTEST ALERT - Experience the power of DDR5 memory with Kingston Click for details

Graphics Cards related queries here.

Wow! If the performance is equal to 3060Ti then why the prices are near to 3070! AMD indian pricing is a joke. I was thinking to get AMD card for seamless Linux experience but gaming is priority. Now that Nvidia has opened their closed drivers, may be I can just go with 3070.

Also how are the thermal performance of those dual fans 6700XT card? They are so cheap that it seems like stock clearance or something.
Thermals, see if you can find more info for that model. It is a 230W GPU, so will need good cooling. Big dual fan cards will be sufficient, ideally needs 3 fans, take call based on ambient temps.

there's a huge element of risk in buying used gpus-most of them are most likely from former mining rigs that have now been dismantled at the onset of the mining "bust" phenomenon,and they will probably fail after some time.

So no matter how many used cards flood the market in the coming months,i think one should refrain from buying them just to be on the safer side (and also to teach those vile miners a lesson).

Already i have started seeing posts on FB for used 3070s for 40-45k and 3060tis for around 36-40k and there are a lot of folks that are going ahead and buying them without thoroughly checking up on the background details.These shifty sellers claim that they were used "only for gaming"-the curious thing is why on earth would someone need so many gpus just for gaming! I wonder why no one is finding it odd-this itself is like a huge red flag and is suggestive of the fact that these people must be miners.

Had anyone tried cloud gaming ? I hit on this website on some random search and this seems to have the latest titles. If this really works, do we even need to spend so much on a console or a graphics card.

For a market like India where console or gaming PCs are not affordable for majority of people, a good priced cloud solution will be a hit IMO.

I have tried stadia in US, was good, surely needs a good broadband connection, which is easier to get these days here. I will say stadia, geforce now & xcloud are the biggest names. It is not easy to make a good cloud gaming solution where people don't feel the lag. Multiple servers are also needed.

Not sure about such small companies, but I hope MS xcloud comes to India soon with Indian servers.

@omega44-xt Found this for Rs.23408, just curious if this is close to its usual price before the crypto craze/shortage.

1660S was starting under 20k before prices went shit. Still, RX6600 is worth the extra money at 29k.
 
What would you say its price should be if crypto craze dies down & prices went back to 2019 level?
There is a lack of budget GPUs, 6500XT & 6400 are very bad, unless priced like 10k & 7k maybe. RTX 3050 should be 20k (MSRP is 22k) as it is a 1660S with newer architecture & RT cores (RT is not useful though for such cards). 1660S should be at least 17-18k. These are still a bit higher as after 3 years, you are still getting the same performance at 20k with 1660S or 3050.

AMD doesn't have much to lose from the death of budget GPUs as they supply for the consoles, but Nvidia has a lot to lose & yet they release stuff like GTX 1630 & 3050 is priced at 30k. Xbox Series S is 32k these days & has performance bit inferior (~20%) to 1660S/3050. So a great choice for casual gamers on a budget.

I was thinking of getting MSI 3070 Gaming Z model but now seriously thinking to get this TUF 3060Ti because of price. I plan to upgrade my display to 3440 x 1440 and play only at high visual settings to get 144fps. What do you guys think if TUF 3060Ti can do this at 3440 x 1440 resolution?

3070 is like 12-15% faster in games.
