    I don't get why you have to be at the cutting edge of PC's if you feel the improvement is too minimal to be worth it? If you stick in the midrange the cost is much cheaper, performance is still solid and probably above console, and you still get the flexibility and upgradability of a PC>

    They tested it at a Dag of 160. To get that number. Am sure ETC is running dag file 141 at the moment. ETH i am not sure of.

    I have opened owners threads for both Vega 56 and 64.

    There is very little in them at the moment but I will fill them out when I am off work again.

    £550 is poor value for the performance on offer. No amount of spin will make me believe otherwise.

    I have never gone near any mining software however this is from PC Gamer:

    "I poked around a bit to see what sort of performance the Vega 56/64 delivered in Ethereum mining, and so far it's been pretty lackluster, considering the price and power use. The Vega 56 manages around 31MH/s for Ethereum, and the Vega 64 does 33MH/s. Overclocking the VRAM helps boost both cards closer to 40MH/s right now. So at launch, that's not super promising."

    it was 450 for 30 minutes or so after launch, then they felt the urge to cutthroat and push it to 550, clowns I tell ya, tbh that potato wasnt even worth the original 450.

    No they should pay someone to come pick up the stock and send them to the dump. They're a failure of a card. Vega54 can just about stay.

    Add in an extra £200 for the gsync premium monitor and also the expectation that there is going to be limited to no improvement from drivers unlike Vega.

    I am not saying I would buy one as went the whole hog with a 1080ti, but if I was purchasing now considering I have the CF791 (which I paid full RRP for), I definitely would consider it.
