    Re: QOTW: AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce for your next PC?

    It's with a heavy heart, that I have to say "probably nvidia".

    I bought a 5700 XT from Scan (who have been utterly awful with their aftersales to the point I will be avoiding them in future) in September but had nothing but problems. The card was woefully unstable, and looking through Reddit etc., I'm in no way in isolation.

    The final straw was when I was in the middle of a support call and the card crashed. I simply can't have something that falls over all the time.

    I was really wanting to shift from nvidia's insane pricing over to AMD, but it simply isn't feasible for somebody who makes their living from their computer (as well as gaming, natch). Looking further into the problems, crashing AMD drivers, irrespective of the generation, seems to be a not uncommon occurrence.

    I'm sticking with a 1070 Ti for the time being, but I might pick up a second to SLI it, or keep an eye out for some deals on the 2000 series next year or something.

    You're really let me down AMD.

    Re: QOTW: AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce for your next PC?

    A couple of months ago i purchased an nVidia Geforce GTX 1650 and couldn't have been happier, now they bring out a 1650 super, but i'm happy with the one i have, so i guess i'll stay with nVidia for the foreseeable future. My next pc will have an nVidia also... I've tried Radeons and i don't like them..

    cheers

    Did a new build not long ago with an 8gb Radeon RX580. First non Nvidia card I've used for about 15yrs. I'm very happy with what I've got.

    Whatever comes my way at the most suitable performance/price point on the second hand market.

    I'm not sure, Nvidia are particularly expensive while there have been high discounts on 5700XT models that heat way too much, despite one being a triple fan setup. I depends on pricing, but I'm also not sure whether either are wise choices. The console generation seemingly is going to support raytracing so it seems somewhat wise to go for that if you want something more long term, but I'm unsure if first gen nvidia is the way to go.

    Re: QOTW: AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce for your next PC?

    I'm not sure yet. I'll take a serious look at the NVidia camp this time, I might just stick with 1080p 120hz so I can stay midrange.

    It should depend on how much I game, but to be honest I might just end up making another "enthusiast" purchase and wasting a boatload of money. We shall see if Hexus can save me from myself!

    Re: QOTW: AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce for your next PC?

    Hopefully Intel. I'm still incredibly salty with nvidia over the 2080Ti. 30% more performance for damn near double the cost, it sickened me. I've been buying from them for as long as I can remember, and it's been a consistent, reliable increase in performance over the last one for a bit of a bump in price. But the RTX bullcrap just rubbed me the wrong way - forcing tech onto people, which actually has no real use on the high end, because who would give up 4K just to get slightly prettier lights ?!

    So I'm pinning my hopes on Intel coming out with something good. Because I just don't think AMD are in the high end graphics game anymore.

    It depends on what gives me the best value for the money spendt, usally going for stuff such as 1080 ti and the likes, but uhm... if it means I lose 10-15 fps in some games by buying AMD or Nvidia or whatever am gonna live with it as long as min fps is above 80.

    Re: QOTW: AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce for your next PC?

    Most likely AMD Radeon since they tend to get supported (in terms of feature additions and extra performance in drivers) for longer than NVIDIA does their GPUs. Along with usually being better value for money of course.

    It's unlikely to be for at least a few years now though, as I bought a Vega 56 last year in anticipation of it going along with a new system that still hasn't been bought and built yet, but will be based around a 3950X CPU.

    This is my buying criteria too. Although I'm considering going to the next generation of console depending on how AMDs raytraycing stacks up.

    Re: QOTW: AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce for your next PC?

    If I had to buy one right now, it would probably be Nvidia. But...

    Depends - I won't be buying a new card for at least year, so I'm waiting for AMD to release higher end models and to see what Nvidia plans for the next year. It sounds like AMD will have an answer to Nvidia's ray tracing "supremacy," as the cool kids are saying now, so let's see what happens with price vs. performance. I think we also need to see what happens as far as games tailoring for one GPU over the other - the surprise performance of the 5700/XT in RDR2 seems to be indicative of what happens when people start programming for AMD gpus since they are in all the consoles now. I'm not brand loyal in the GPU space.

    I'm keeping an eye on AMD for my next purchase, I have been NVidia a few years (after being AMD for over 10) and AMD look to be becoming a lot more competitive at the higher end.

    My new 5700XT red devil card are doing fine, though i must admit it seem to have caused some problems for me too.

    1: Gigabytes RGB fusion software, while it have always been miserable it can not launch on my computer since i put this GFX in the machine and did a clean install of everything.

    2: most of my few games are fine with the new card, but gears 5 which i have gotten free access to with the Xbox Game Pass, well i little into campaign there is a time where i have to install another thing on that flying thing, but i just cant.
    Up until that moment in the game there have been no problem accessing the drone by pressing TAB.
    The game don't crash or anything i just can not install that thing and so i can not move on with campaign, and gears 5 are not a game i would even consider to play multiplayer, i love my good mood too much to attempt that.
    Of course it might not be the 5700XT that are to blame, but other seem to have been able to play thru campaign just fine, i doubt i will be able to do that before my free XGP run out on January 4
    Wolfstein new colossus and metro exedus I am sampling via XGP + railway empire all run perfect.
    Other programs also work fine even GFX dependent programs like my video editing suite.

    I would like to win in lotto and get a 4K monitor and a big navi card if that's not a pipe dream, but that's only the only way i will ever be able to finance that.

    1920X CPU @ 4GHZ / 48GB ram @ 3300 MHZ and pretty happy wit my "all new" AMD machine

    As a Linux user I pretty much feel the only option is AMD.

    Purchased a RTX2070 Super while on holiday in September. I've been very happy with it
