  1. Will the 6500XT be faster than a RX560? If so, I have a very old system I may upgrade.

    I’m really kind of bummed that the only vCache Ryzen is the 5800, and its not going to be immediately available – it will still nicely upgrade my 2700x on an x470 MB, but my 5950x is kind of a dud. The 5950x needs positive voltage just to be stable with PBO on, so I was kind of hoping to use my current 5950 to upgrade my NAS, and get a stacked vCache one for my main machine.

  2. I’m definitely interested in the vCache’d 5800X to upgrade my 3700X. Not a massive bump, but enough to justify it.

    Yeah, sadly I’m contemplating a 6600 xt to replace a RX 480, but the 480 is holding its own and matches well with the CPU it’s currently paired with.

    The 6600 xt seems to be between a 5600 to 5700 but better energy consumption. It’s just the price that sucks. 1 to 2% increase of performance for 15+% price over the previous generation, before scalper adjustments.
