    I don't know what's more disturbing, the price or the fact that there will be people out there that will pay it and be convinced it was money well spent.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Nitro+

    Page Nine seems to be mislabelled guys, apart from that another good review.

    Interesting to see that despite 3x 8 pin power on the board that overclocking is still shocking.

    I wonder what in the process of the GPU manufacture is holding that back? Is this a GloFo fabricated part?

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Nitro+

    So that was with the old drivers, not the new Adrenalin version?

    Edit: not that I intend spending £600 on a gpu, but would like to know how much difference it makes.

    Saw a site yesterday (sorry it was a link from elsewhere so can't remember which one) and with the new Adrenalin drivers there was 1 to 2 FPS gain in some titles and some ran worse, maybe a game patch or driver updates in the future might make more difference.

    Been hard to swallow but this still appears the one bad move AMD made this year. Just appears they couldn't get everything to sit together well and HBM2 appears to have been hit with high cost and poor yields thus scuppering them in many ways
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Some people report they're getting excellent mining performance from Vega, maybe they're the real target audience.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Nitro+

    Bah. Custom V64 at old V64 prices is worth having, this is just too pricey. Since all the custom vega boards on scan are silly money, I've lost hope of the price coming down to a sensible level. Even the powercolour hoover has gone up in price, and the release date has slipped!

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Nitro+

    I was going to whinge like I have elsewhere but if I were to win one in the upcoming competition I would be heaping praise on this - free is always value.

    Seriously though, for what it does, how late it is, how power hungry it is - it had to be cheaper, much cheaper.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Nitro+

    A decent card. Shame about the price they have to charge to make a slim profit on it. Really hoping that Vega gets a 12nm+ refresh and gets its deactivated features working (if they're not broken at the hardware level), so that AMD can continue to have some products out there until Navi.

    Like many tech enthusiasts, I want competition back in the market, not just at the high end, but throughout the whole market segment. Lower-power Vega chips with slower speeds and fewer cores could be a fantastic replacement for Polaris. Vega's biggest issue is that they've basically overclocked and overvolted it, obliterating its potential for power efficiency.

    I do hope that Navi can be as disruptive as Ryzen has been, particularly if it's true that it will be based on the same design methodology (i.e., groups of smaller core complexes, working together as a single chip), leading to higher yields, lower costs and great power effiency.

    This was tested on the new Adrenaline drivers, by the way; just shows up as Crimson in GPU-Z.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Nitro+

    This card might make sense for somebody with a strong commitment to open source, because AMD has better open source drivers available than NVidia does. Otherwise it looks like a non-starter. I think the basic design of Vega is sound and it's being let down by the 14nm chip process from Global Foundries; perhaps next year's update using their new 12nm process will be more competitive.
