Overclock or undervolt the led
What is your default voltage out of interest?
Maybe but you could just look at it as a £700 card for 1080Ti performance (assimass you don't need the compute performance).
Who is actually paying £700 though? Oh, and a used 1080ti often fetches nearly £500, which isn't a world away from an equivalent new card with a decent warranty.
700 I can find one over 100 less and for that its a great card, 16g HBM2 In some games can use over 8g now so its future proof in a way, plus if you ever need compute performance it kicks arse! as I said if the 2080ti didn't come my way as a bargin, the VII would still be rocking in my machine.
ray tracing isn't all that and dlss is a blur fest. as for the 1080ti the VII is better!
I found a brand new VII for £577, and there is simply no Nvidia equivalent for that kind of price, unless you buy used.
Apologies LtMatt, I must have missed your post!
I'm at work at the moment, will give you an answer when I get home this evening.
Sorry for the delay in responding to you, I mainly post from my phone and I must have missed a notification. So, my Vega 56 was running P6 1150 and P7 1200 stock, which I then undervolted to P6 1050 and P7 1100.
I'm still trying to figure out the Radeon VII's settings, as it's quite a bit different, but I can tell you that it currently maxes out at 1111 mV. Everything is on automatic at the moment, until I get my head around the new layout.
So when you hoover your mouse over the third highest dot to the right in WattMan it says, 1111mv? Thanks.
Are these likely to come down in price anytime soon?
How are people finding power and noise on these?
Also is there any major difference ebtween makes? Reviews seem to indicate they are all reference cards. But prices seem to vary from £599 to £700 evem withing the same retailer. So what's the difference between manufacturers? Thanks.
Nothing, they are all the same.
Power and noise at stock are hungry and loud, but with a 1 minute tweak of the settings you can get them running cooler and much quieter (and faster)
Next question... Anyone upgraded from a Vega 64 and is it worth it?
I did and for the price difference these days, no it's not worth it. Its double the price for 20-25% ish more performance.
It is a brilliant card though, more character/personality to it than a 2080 and much more fun to fiddle with.
You're welcome, but if you can afford it I would recommend the upgrade as you definately feel it.
Unlikely. I managed to get a brand new one for £577, but that was a really lucky find. They're generally in the £650 range or higher, and if the GTX 1080 is any indication, then the high end cards seem to hold their price for some time!
