    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    For me it'll depend on how they match up against the next gen Nvidia chips expected soon, so far they seem to just about match the current Nvidia cards rather than beating them which isn't great considering the 1080 has been out a year.

    On another point, surely there is little point in considering n-sync/freesync if the card is fast enough because it shouldn't need to slow the monitor down?

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    Not sure looking at an rx 580 as a cooler slightly faster card. I have just dropped one of my 290xs to sell to which I was running a display port on each for 2 UHD monitors (productivity. I am happy with 290x performance but need 2 display ports again.

    If I get a vega it will be the 56 after a price drop, say £280 top end with a reasonable after market cooler.

    No, I'll wait out the NV answers that are on the way with jacked up clocks and GDDR5x (apparently all but the VERY bottom card have GDDR5x coming, 2060/2070/2080 etc). They may even be Volta based & 12nm. I can easily wait for an xmas gift to myself with far better thermals, likely better drivers over the life of the card (updated more often at least) and obviously far better perf than todays 1070/1080 etc. Assuming AMD starts making some real money at some point (PROFITS that is), drivers SHOULD get better as the can direct more R&D there. But until then, NV is definitely the safer bet for me unless AMD shows something that is CLEARLY leading NV at the same price. It looks like all they did was match perf of last gen but at worse watts/thermals probably. Only another 10 days or so until we know for sure but that's how it looks.

    The Vega I'm waiting for is Raven Ridge.

    I've just got hold of a bargain 1070 (Apparent misprice on amazon.de, and then cashback. £284 for an MSI Aero ITX OC 1070 8GB ), so I won't be considering Vega except possibly in Raven Ridge form.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    I'm definitely looking into Vega as one of my RX480's died a few days ago. Probably going for the Vega 56 which does seem like the better value option. If the Vega 64 isn't that much more I'd consider it. I will be mining as well, but only on the side for some extra of money when my PC is not in use.

    Nope and even if I was looking at a new card it would be way out of what I normally spend. The power consumption and TDP of the Vega 64 looks a bit meh as I own a mini-ITX system too. Vega 56 looks better though,although it looks like it will be closer to £400 too when it lands here.

    Re: QOTW: Are you considering AMD Radeon RX Vega?

    Currently still very much about the full potential especially the part where you do not have to rely on the ram on the GFX alone, I wonder if you can somewhat build a kind of GFX ram drive as some sort of pre-buffer if it is green or red team... not so bothered about that but interested inf seeing the actual technology and how it will interact and of course perform, if it mean I can save 50 bucks or whichever and gain 120 FPS in X game of interes and the more expensive variant is like 125-130 when why bother paying more as hardly would see a difference anyway.
