  1. I just upgraded to these and there is quite a large difference in performance for Halo Infinite. I have a Radeon 6700 XT and at 1440p I noticed an immediate difference in smoothness. Additionally, just looking at my average fps (as captured by the driver software), increased from 62.5 fps to 94.0 fps.
