Haven't tried RT yet.
I don't use it in COD Warzone, as I want as much performance as possible.
So I'm playing medium-ish settings, to have constant 100+ fps (closer to 144)

i had the newest ones...
I just didn't care because i got used to RivaTuner way earlier.

I found the new AMD software overloaded and overcomplicated to do even some simple things...
It looks attractive, I admit that, but that's not always a good thing, because of overabundance of useless (for me, personally) options.
I really need some essentials and nothing more.
That's why I don't even bother installing geforce experience.
I'm not streaming or recording replays, etc. so I don't care.
I can also manage game settings on my own...

So far so good.

The CPU (4790K @4.6) seems to hold up in Call of Duty Warzone, too (mostly in the 60-80% range of usage).

The card seem to work flawlessly so far, boosting well over 1900mhz in game without any additional noise, keeping temps at 60-65 degrees.
Also I love that you can set "max frame rate" in Nvidia control panel, both globally and per game, without engaging any third party software.
Those are those little things, that for me justify "overpaying" for nvidia.

I just plug in the card, the monitor, install the drivers and boom, everything works like a charm.

Thank you guys for your opinions, again.

Ha-Nocri Nice. You can set frame limit per game in AMD drivers too. I personally think that new AMD software is amazing, could not use NVidia CP anymore.

JarleH Current AMD cards will NOT support the new raytracing in DX12 Ultimate that will come with the release of Xbox X.
nVidia 2xxx cards will (at least to a degree) support the new raytracing in DX12 Ultimate.

Most likely both will release new cards sometime around end of the year.

With one monitor it is hassle free for me since the beginning.

And new cards will most likely come out 2nd half of this year, probably 4th quarter, so if it was me, I would buy now also.
I think that happens on both camps. OP, here is my cpu usage in gaming with the 5700XT paired with a R7 2700 stock.

Are they?
I feel like they are postponing it constantly, now the virus being the reason.

I also am in the #staythef...home mode currently, meaning I could make a good use of the new card and monitor NOW.
Also one of the reasons I want to upgrade. ^^
