    Scan had these briefly for £335 - a mate of mine nabbed one. Still overpriced but at least it will be twice the performance of their GTX980.

    That's my kind of graphics card, although I want something with rather more grunt, when I get around to replacing my current card.

    only twice?

    according to gpu.userbenchmark site this is 686% quicker than mine on average. MRender is +1,226% faster.
    HD7770. the 750ti broke, artifacting all over the place. even in BIOS.

    and its also another reason to not do win11. theres no drivers for mine, they stopped supporting it in the may cull.

    but i'd also need a new monitor, unless my dvi>hdmi converter block (that came with a 4870 gpu) works on the input end of the monitor.. then ill still be on 1680x1050.

    Well I guestimated it as twice going from this:

    https://tpucdn.com/review/msi-rx-580..._1920_1080.png
    https://tpucdn.com/review/amd-rx-480..._3840_2160.png

    Polaris was the immediate AMD generation over Maxwell. But another issue is the GTX980 is limited to 4GB VRAM,and has poor DX12/Vulkan performance so its probably more in certain newer titles. Its still not ideal,ie,as I think the RX6600 should be under £300(around £250~£280) but ATM dGPUs sees to not getting any better in terms of supply. Personally,I might have waited and at least saw if there was an RTX3060TI FE drop like there was last week,but it would mean reacting to notifications quickly.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 6600 Pulse

    actually wonder if the Companies selling these card in general, would drop the RGB or make without RGB variants more of the same types... I mean today it is like you need to pay extra for the RGB, when you only are interested in better factory OC's and such.

    It is like adding a Turbo button when it say RGB or logo... as it was very much back in the 80's when there was Turbo everything haha.

    Either way would say it is the plus, but not the kind og card I would focus on as I need much more power, maybe it will end for all PCI-E 5.0 and DDR5 when I get next system now... so no need for GFX at 4.0

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 6600 Pulse

    Interesting thought - I looked up performance of this Vs my Vega64.

    It's about 75% of the performance of my card.

    It's also about 75% of the price I paid.

    You could (on a single data point, using dodgy benchmarks and one man's anecdotal experience with horrific rounding errors in the "maths") argue that the absolute price/performance ratio hasn't improved since the Vega64/GTX1080 generation. Sure there's more performance on offer, but your value per pound hasn't improved.
