This going to be a trend, more and more Games will be optimized for AMD GPU's/CPUs too, not like it was for many years NV optimized only.
That's good thing, AMD optimized titles run great on everything, unlike GameWorks cancer.

AMD is selecting the right games for once. Not the trashy EA games. Only decent Nvidia game is Metro.

110 tjunction at stock is normal and you can check every review site including gamernexus that shows tjunction. I'm not going to modify the stock cooler since the plan was to always purchase a water block which I'm picking up today. I love the excuses that people come up with. Why should a consumer have to modify the stock cooler of a $700 GPU?

People water cool for many different reasons. I water cool for silence, I have my fans at 600 RPM and the only thing I heard was the coil whine from my Vega 64. Now all I hear is a loud obnoxious fan from the Radeon VII. Who would of thought that their triple fan design would be as loud as their blower? I guess that's what happens when you use Cooler Master as the manufacturer.
owners thread of VII shows very different tj from card to card, from 90 to 110........... i agree with you though that a 700$ gpu would deserve more love from the manufacturer but we all know why this gpu costs this amount (and turing prices allowed it to be there too) and it is not for the cooler....

If you want power and silence wc is the only way, or are you saying that nvidia has air cooled card that perform silently even at 100% gpu load and maxed out PL without thermal throttling? they are nice at stock, but when you oc I see at least 70% fan to avoid severe throttling and it is anything from silent

Anyway a simple re-paste and tightening the screws do a good job, the issue here is if you void the warranty doing so

cheers

I think AMD started getting better FCAT results than Nvidia. That's when the importance disappeared.

PCper is hardly any more than a shell of its former self with ryan, allyn and ken going to intel; they don't have an office(s) or studio anymore.

but fear not guru3d still uses FCAT and many other sites present the 95th and 99th percentile(s), ~same thing.

though with SLI/Xfire being less and less of a thing . . where any stutter was really exaggerated.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

yeah but it's got electrolytes and rt fancy effects!
I am aware of what I was getting myself into before purchasing a Radeon VII. The plan was to purchase a waterblock just like my previous Vega 64 since AMD is unable to make a Cool n Quiet(see what I did there) high end GPU ever since the r9 290x. I am easily able to reach 85C but that requires the fan to run at 3850RPM. I'm not going to play around with the screws and lapping the base of the liquid chamber when I was planning to get a heatsink from the beginning. I do not care for the warranty because I received a trash warranty since i purchased the card directly from AMD(1 year). If I did I would of purchased a XFX card since they honor third party cooling.

Most RTX 2080 cards are in the 36dBA(40dBA for FE or 59.4dBA) range while the stock Radeon VII is 54dBA when gaming and 62dBA at 3850 RPM. When gaming the card usually is around 2950 RPM which is a bit over 75%. The RTX 2080 FE hovers around 70c @ 1850 RPM at stock and frequency drops down from 1965MHz to 1895MHz. While the Radeon VII at stock thermal throttles down to 1670MHz to 1520MHz. I can easily get it back to 1750Mhz(1800Mhz stock) or 1900Mhz(1950) with a 1070mV undervolt sustained the entire time when setting the fan to 3850 RPM which is another reason I bought a block. So compared to a FE the thermal throttling of a Radeon VII is much worse.

If you are unbiased, you should choose the 2080.
When presented with two chairs, you sit on the one that is most comfortable for you, not the one that is "just not as good, but almost" just in the name of principle, and sometimes feel a little bit off when sitting, knowing, that you could be so much more comfortable on the chair you should have chosen in the first place.

If the games you play are not tipping the scale to AMD, but play a verity of games, then "close enough" is not good enough.

Simple as that.

Any other choice is based on preferability. You like brand A or brand B. haagen daz or b&j. You like AMD or Nvidia.
If that is a legitimate choice, than the claims of "fanboy" targeted at one brand while reseting it about another, are absolutely stupid.
But those are subjective choices. If you want to be objective, then it is simple. Choose the one that is first place, not second best.
Not everything is about absolute FPS, or did you just ignore all the other points I made in RVII's favor? Price can be a BIG determining factor and as I said, on balance, the RVII's can be had for cheaper than the 2080's. But even if you decide to only look at the few $700 2080's available, then there are other factors at play such as the doubling of the VRAM over the 2080 (and not just twice the memory, but much faster memory as well), the advantage of having the newest available technology (first 7nm gaming GPU, HBM2, etc), and the higher build quality (GN did an in-depth video regarding the high-quality and consequently high-cost mosfets used in the RVII).

Look, I have said multiple times that I personally recommend the 2080 over the RVII to most people that are comparing the two cards, but the point I was making in the above post was that it is asinine to claim the 2080 is just so far and away superior to the RVII in every way that you'd have to be a fanboy to even consider the Radeon card. We are talking about 5 measly percent here, not 25% (or even 15%). Put another way, if the 2080 gets you 100 FPS in your favorite game then the RVII will get you a wholly "catastrophic" 95 FPS on average. There is also the fact that game performance varies from title to title and there are plenty of games that the RVII not only beats the 2080 in but also comes uncomfortably close to the 2080Ti (and vice versa of course; there are games where the RVII is closer to the 2060 than the 2080).

Overall, I personally give the edge to the 2080 as the better gaming card (right now anyway), but make no mistake it is by a very thin margin, and any number of factors outside of pure FPS consideration can easily swing that balance the other way round.
