    So for a high end gaming GPU you don't need a separate CPU?
    No. Just means cause they make both they can get them to work with one another.

    Modern CPUs have decent built in APUs (on-board graphics) which do enable you to play games.

    However, what AMD have done is develop the CPU and GPU technologies in such a way that they can leverage each other.

    So the new GPU is extremely powerful on it's own. However, when combined with a Ryzen 5000 CPU, it is faster again.

    What they've done, essentially, is force nVidia's hand. I reckon within the next 5 months we will start seeing 3070Ti, 3080Ti and 3090 Ti (or super) variants with bumped clocks to edge them past the AMD offerings.

    If they can't do that, they will have to drop the prices. 3080 launched at $699, 6800XT launches at $649.
    3090 launched at $1500, 6900XT launches at $999.

    The only area I see a weakness is the $579 launch price of the 6800. Unless they're planning an additional, lower-tier card in the near future, I think AMD have priced that one a little high.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    These GPU's are very powerful if you see what the framerates are at the highest settings.

    I'm impressed that AMD has a card that is now competing against nvidia on the top end. I just wish we could see some benchmark comparisons to counter RTX features.

    That's exactly the one area I'm curious about too, No direct Ray-tracing comparisons.

    i doubt they'll be as good at ray-tracing - it is their first foray into the area after all. Then again, many of the people I know who have RTX cards don't use ray-tracing for many titles, so for me it's less of an issue.
