    That's why I've still got a Vega 64 (AIO), I will buy either AMD or NVIDIA (I have had both in the past), I do kinda want to support the underdog/competition so I will probably go AMD ;)

    Tbf by next summer/Fall you should have some more options on both sides!! I'm not a fanboy either, have a 2080Ti and 5700XT here :D

    edit - Also, nVidia DX12 driver is trash man, just trash. Get crashes in both Division 2 and Borderlands 2 if I use it, the 5700XT has no such problems and gives it a healthy boost over DX11 in both games!

    I managed to get a few days old Asus 5700XT blower for £275 from the MM, bloody good performance for that money and a solid 3yr warranty!! :cool:

    I really need an upgrade as I'm running a Samsung C49RG9 @5120 x 1440, currently I run most of my games in a window ;)

    Yeah, big Navi would be perfect for you :(

    Hold on if you can unless you spot a bargain XT to tide you over!

    Runs 2Ghz/1780mem so gives it a decent boost too :)

    I've got too used to no fan noise as my VEGA 64 is AIO, I did have a 5700XT but while in "benchmarks" the XT is faster it was really hard to perceive any "real world" difference.

    You won't unless they are big jumps, i can't tell the difference between 60 and 75 FPS, but 60 vs 100 i can, and again at 100 vs 150. 150 vs 200, no...

    Agreed. Hell I don't even mind knocking some of the settings down so it's pretty pointless me having a 2080Ti as I don't run 4k atm!

    No but you can run 1440p with highest setting at high FPS/HZ which I would prefer over 4K with lower FPS esp on high HZ monitor even on a 2080Ti 4K is not IMO quite here yet.

    Do not see point in downgrading once bought unless some get buyers remorse and they shouldn't have bought it in 1st place for cashflow/other reasons (sound like any one here).

    I just hope this launch is better handled than the 1080 cards, that was a shambles waiting 4 months after release and still pre ordered on day one.

    It can be a CPU bottleneck caused by the Ryzen 7 4800H. 20% is not bad.



    AMD's high-end Navi GPU allegedly pops up in OpenVR benchmark, outperforms Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti

    I was disappointed AMD didn't announce the new high end card. I'll make do with my 1070 until then. Unless a crazy good deal comes along.
