    Yeh, I've had the old "knocked on door and nobody in" from DPD before.

    When I stayed in all day waiting for the delivery.

    Windows 10 Task manager is supposed to show the correct Vram reading. And at 1440p Resi 2 uses 7.7GB Vram on my VEGA 64. AMD on screen display reads 10+ So I guess that is reading like you said cached ram. If AMD got their numbers from Task manager it could very well be correct.

    This seems to be Ati's attempt at the 5800U.

    The 5800 Ultra came out slower and hotter than the good old 9700. Dead in the water.

    This card has a good 7nm process but is tied to 16GB of overly expensive memory and so ends up costing the same as it's competitor whilst running a dustblower.....

    How things change.

    Not that I am an nvidia fanboy. I hoped they would get a real kicking after all the price gouging and other stuff, but not this time it seems. We await Navi, this seems to be an attempt to muscle in as first 7nm and has not really delivered.

    For the sake of our wallets I hope Ati nails it soon.

    Not even remotely close to the dustbuster.

    Report it to OCUK, so they can get their money back for a failed delivery.

    I used to own the dustbuster and this isn't vaguely close to it at all.

    edit: Are people forgetting the George Forman grill that sat on top of Thermi?

    Here in DK the 8gb rx 580 cost about the same as the rx 590. Roughly 20-30 pounds between the cheapest rx 580 and the sapphire nitro 590. I know which one i would pick.

    And you'll get that extra £20-£30 back when you resell, I always buy a primo card, and I always get a great return on it. I got £93 for a Sapphire 380 Nitro in September, which I paid £164 2 1/2 years earlier.

    All cards are that spartan today, only exception the Vega Nitro coming with scaffolding. Long gone the days of BFG supplying tshirts also.

    Also you cannot use those power cables these days as all cards burn more power and need the proper ones coming from the PSU. As for adapters, dvi is dead.

    Don't flame me but if anyone is still interested in either a Gigabyte or MSI Vega VII they are still available on another website that is right next door to Bolton Wanderers stadium. Both are available for £699. Just saying. I got my Vega 64 there on launch day.

    That would be the ATI that sold out to AMD just before the disastrous 2900XT came out? That ATI?

    It would of been to have got the little connector caps and pcie protector after all it is a pricey card. Mine's a Sapphire and apart from the foam and plastic bag the gpu was in all it has is a generic how to install your gpu leaflet.
