    it is interesting there is not Battlefield V as a benchmark
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Having seen the price I was worried I might regret my Vega64 purchase a few months back. But considering that it's a few FPS shy of the Vega64, essentially a last gen card, I'm pretty content considering I paid less for my card than this is asking (and my card is now £600?!!).

    Also, it's very similar in performance to the GTX 1070 and the GTX1080 is faster. So basically this card represents no real increase in performance at the same price point after many years of development. In the old days we used to see decent increases in chooch factor every 6 months.

    What this tells me is that the GPU market has not progressed one jot for normal gaming. It may do if you have a fortune but that's not normal gaming. Raytracing will probably be impossible on this card at anything approaching a decent resolution. Nvidia's new T&C prevent use of consumer cards (well, actually the drivers for them) for data centre use and so this is purely a gaming card.

    Nvidia desperately needs some competition and AMD AT THE MOMENT is not providing any.
    Their 590 is a good performer but that power draw is horrendous, nearly 2x power consumption for about 10% performance increase over the 1060 (game/benchmark dependent). According the
