ASRock Radeon RX 6700 XT Challenger D Gaming Graphic Card, 12GB GDDR6 VRAM, AMD RDNA2 (RX6700XT CLD 12G)

Pros: - Simple design. - Two fans instead of three. - No LEDs. - Solid build quality. - Nice cooling performance & fairly quiet. - Good price. - Works well with Linux & Windows. - Great performance. - 12GB of Vram.

Cons: - Isn't the most attractive, but gets the job done. - Slightly lower performance than equivalent Nvidia. - Above MSRP.

Overall Review: I like this card. It's simple and doesn't have extra gimmicks. It seems like the manufacturer spent money where it matters. Cooling performance is solid. Overclocking is easy. This generation of AMD cards have been overlooked and misjudged during the GPU apocalypse. Frankly, you're getting comparable performance within a few % of any equivalent Nvidia card. DLSS and RTX are gimmicks to me, coming from a 2080S. You're also paying a much much lower price. As for me, I switched to AMD abruptly because of the appalling situation of NVIDIA drivers on Linux. Nvidia is a very lazy and greedy company to hold back critical new technologies with their buggy proprietary drivers. AMD GPUs come with shockingly good software on Windows which outdoes Nvidia. Linux drivers are included in the kernel itself. I don't have to do anything. I just get great Vulkan performance. Much more versatile. 6700XT is a great card, plain and simple. Not too hot. Not buggy. Very nice performance. Decent value.
