    I am but I'm not planning any upgrades soon, maybe in the first 1/2 of 18.

    I have a gtx 1080. So, no. I'm not buying a Vega. It's a half year to late.

    not until they knock £50 of it at least ..
    which wont be long NVidia will be lowering there prices on the 1070/1080 ..

    Maybe if the prices are reasonable. My Rx 480 is bottlenecking my Ryzen 1700x but Vega seems expensive and late to the party.

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

    Am using a R9 290 currently, which seems to run everything i play at 1080p just fine. so no immidiate need for an upgrade.

    That said, i am planning to make a secondary rig at some time, and the Ryzen 1600 X looks really neat. Currently Vega does seem like a nice match with that.

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

    Since my R9 390 died recently and I got my money back, and I really want to make use of FreeSync, I'm definitely buying it, unless it turns out to be totally worthless, in which case I'll consider an RX 580 as a stopgap. Or maybe I'll just get a GTX 1080 and finally give up on Radeons, though I've been using them for like 7 or 8 years straight .

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

    Would like to sell my 1080 and get a Vega 64 based card but I'd want Vega to be beating the 1080 consistently otherwise it's not really worth the hassle for me. I do want a new freesync monitor though..

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

    I'm giving my son my Fury Pro card so I'm definitely in the market for Vega 64 as I already have a 144hz freesync monitor. However, I'm not going to pay gouged mining price and if it's not available by mid Sept I'm buying a 1080ti.

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

    I am waiting for my GTX670 worth replacement for 4k gaming. Unfortunetly for vega i dont have freesync so it will be totally based on performance per $.
    As for now i dont mind the power consumption, but i need card on 1080ti performance lvl.

    Not personally,

    I am not in the market for an upgrade and my pair of Maxwell Titan X's in SLI are still performing fantastically for all my needs.

    If I was going to be upgrading soon, then I certainly would be considering AMD Vega.

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

    There's so much advertising and other junk in PC gaming these days I tend to wait until complete editions are released on gog or similar which means there's not a lot of point in my buying a high end card.

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

    Probably would if it was released in an even vaguely timely manner - especially with the 1800X discount - but as it stands? Even if it splits the 1080 and 1080 Ti it is too close to Volta's release.

    No, I got a second hand R9 390 in February for not very much money (before the mining craze hit). That will be fine for a while longer.

    No, everything I need from a graphics card can be met by a basic integrated graphics system.

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

    GTX 1070 is good enough for me, the reason to swap would be for Freesync however I'm feeling like upgrading to a 144hz/1440p/21:9 monitor when they release and even if it costs me £900 I'll do it with G-Sync. I really want AMD to release something and get competitive in the GPU scene but they seem to busy with CPU' atm.
