Some interesting details from the latest stats:

1. GPU shift from Nvidia to AMD among GOL users has been almost flat for a while, likely due to major GPU shortages and inflated prices, which makes most wait and not upgrade their GPUs.

2. Radeon RX 6900 XT has more users than RX 6800 XT and RX 6800. Probably also skewed due to shortages. Usually it's the opposite picture.

Is there any interest in switching the Arch/Ubuntu-based groups to a pkg/deb/rpm/portage-based groups? If not, any chance of adding Red Hat-based and Gentoo-based groupsto the existing graphs?

Hey Liam, maybe you should add a Steam Deck question, akin to the VR one, to the survey?

True, but I switched to a 3070 Ti even though I prefer AMD, but since I could not get the 6800 or 6900 passively cooled by heat pipes, since they ... just get too hot not to actively cool them.

On the 3070 Ti I could opt into two active coolers which only jump on if the voltage transformers get too hot, which would be about if they get into a permanent load of > 80 % for several minutes (I decided to get two very silent coolers I don't really hear since the case is padded too, since those are just ~400RPM coolers - that's not an option for AMD either). I just was not able to do that with the AMD counterparts, they require active cooling a lot earlier and more heavily or so to say .. permanently if they get under load.

Sucks, but I think that AMD still has some work to do to catch up in that part. I'm aware that's a corner case and nobody really cares but me, but I like not actually hearing my system :D.

I didn't do an extensive research, but my Sapphire Pulse RX 6800 XT is not spinning fans and is completely silent under normal desktop operation, running at around 53-55°C (edge). When under load like gaming, fans start working obviously. I find it a pretty good setup. Plus even under load fans are pretty quiet so I have nothing to complain about quiet operation wise.

My fans don't even start when gaming ;-). That's what I was aiming for.

I have not tried the Sapphire card though, but since it's a 6800 TX it is about cooling down 320W to 290W, and that makes a difference.

I see. I doubt it's possible with higher end models, regardless whether it's AMD or Nvidia. For slightly more mid range ones - may be, especially if you downclock them.

I.e. 6800 XT is comparable to something like 3080 Ti I suppose, not 3070?

It's about the voltage they take and the actual passive cooling they'd take. My tower weights 24KG for that reason ... but 30W difference makes a huge difference on actually being able to passively cool them.

And according to tests, 6800 XT is actually worse than 3070Ti to the sources I am reading at least. But ye, I couldn't cool a 3080 either ...

From what I was reading, 6800 XT is pretty close to 3080 Ti, so I don't expect it to be worse than 3070 Ti really (I mean performance wise).
