    Your friends say that you're a bit loud and start burning up after 10 pints, but they love you anyway so it's ok :p

    Not disagreeing with that, x60 / x70 are mid range as well and should be priced accordingly - not $499 for a FE card., and these compete with them , after all - its the biggest market! The question is - which cards are the RX57xx replacing? Vega 56/64 or RX580/590? If its Vega , then RX57xx are both cheaper. If its 580/590 then these are more expensive.

    Replacing a product stack? a product stack is from top to bottom, so no, they haven't replaced a product stack. They are replacing one card in 5 months. What about AMD doing the same thing, to hell with all the people who bought the Radeon VII. And the people who bought the Radeon Vii paid a hell of a lot more than the people who bought a 2060.

    And since you have a problem with Nvidia replacing the 2070, 8 months later, what about RX 470 and RX 570? Oh, I get it, it's only bad if Nvidia does it.

    Why would I apologise to you? You have been condescending and rude, insulting anybody who doesn't agree with you, labelling them as Nvidia fanboys. You have even labelled the whole site as pro Nvidia.

    Did the entire GTX 10xx range with blower coolers pass you by or something?

    Navi 10 succeeds Polaris, obviously.
    The thing is that above RX 5700/RVII, there are 5! nvidia cards which are either on par or with much higher performance.
    1080Ti, 2070S, 2080, 2080S, 2080Ti.

    I have no problems with blowers if they're not crap. I have a problem with poor acoustic and thermals of which AMD have had for years and years.

    My Nvidia 680 GTX was a blower. But the acoustics and thermals were well praised

    You are wrong and proven wrong. RTX 2060 was launched this year and Nvidia are dumping it in a very short, and yet you still straw man. Thoughts and prayers for your soul.

    I don't think there is an outcry about performance, just the cooler and the price. There is no point in calling the Nvidia price crap and then calling the AMD price ok?

    Also, there are always a couple of games that cards do really well in. There are always outliers. You can say that there are some cases where the 5700xt matches the 1080ti but there are also some cases where the 2060 Super is nearly as fast as the 1080 ti and where the 2070 super beats it easily.

    For instance with Pascal anything upto a 1080 was fine, 1080Ti was pretty horrible!

    Tom Logun talks about that in his video - the GTX 1080Ti cant be bought new, and the 5700XT is on par (at times) with the 2070 already, 2080s hasnt even been announced (as yet). RX 640 is mentioned as well for low end (ffs, polaris lives on , yet again)

    Because i wont bend over for Nv? Bless you.

    The blower on my Gainward GTX 1080 is horrible and spins to max frequently when the card gets to 92 degrees

    Ah, I see, your post explains everything, AMD GOOD - NVIDA BAD. AMD replaces card in a few months, that's fine according to you, Nvidia does it, that's terrible and a sign of panic.

    Just to remind you, the argument was that this somehow proves that Nvidia are in panic mode. It doesn't, far from it. It just shows that they had a plan ready to rain on AMD's launch. Which they did. Or do you think AMD lowered the prices of the cards out of the goodness of their hearts?

    So, nope, not wrong.

    Yeah, not the same (1080FE used vapor-chamber iirc, 1070 didn't)

    fact is NVidia's 2 year old 1080ti was a beast of a card, and it can still beat navi.

    then your 1080ti needs new thermal paste, I always water cool mine and the 2080ti might reach 35c oh I love air con.

    Performance and price look decent enough. XT trades blows seemingly with the 2070S depending on the game, resolution and settings used. 5700 does very well against the 2060S.

    Will be interesting to see what the custom cards look like price wise. Assumed they will be priced comparably to the 2070S custom cards.


    Also - Custom Fan profile on my 1080Ti FE (repasted with MX-4), 76C in Superposition looped (or Destiny 2 if I am gaming). Was running at 71C but then ambient has gone up a few degrees. This is with it boosting to 2Ghz. Stock profile saw it hit 82C.

    But did Steve from GamersNexus say, "this is actually one of the worst stock coolers we have ever worked with". He did with the 5700XT cooler :eek:
