    So going by the 56/64, would Vega 11 likely compete with a 1060, but consume more power? Or is the plan to somehow strike a middle ground between 1060 and 1070 performance?

    You sure Gigabyte doesn't void the warranty with a custom block? All Vega's have the same "void warranty if removed" sticker on a screw of the reference cooler.

    The 580 already competes with the 1060, so not sure.

    Gigabyte doesn't void the warranty of their GPUs as long as you haven't damaged the card by watercooling it, and you provide them with the original cooler for RMA purposes.

    Alongside EVGA are the two companies who are pretty clear on that aspect.

    Curious to your source/experience then. Was searching for an answer to this specific question as I just bought a Gigabyte Vega 64 myself and curious about replacing the thermal paste. However, what I found:

    2015 http://www.dazmode.com/_forum/archive/index.php/t-1717.html
    2016 https://www.reddit.com/r/watercooling/comments/51rp52/gigabyte_warranty_and_water_cooling/

    2012 https://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?topic=204.15
    2016 https://www.gigabyte.com/Press/News/1476

    Specifically the last one is an up-to-date reply by Gigabyte stating it voids the warranty if a cooler is removed.

    That's what I thought, hence why it would make sense at least for it to be closer to a 1070 then now. Hope so at least, as a 580 seeems decent power consumption wise, and would there be a market for a card that performs similarly to a 580 but is better for compute tasks (or whatever Vega is better for vs the Nvidia cards)?

    You'll see 1070 performance for the price of a 1060 or RX580. Won't use much more power than similarly clocked rival cards at the more conservative specs.

    The Gigabyte rep on this forum was asked and they clarified.

    RX 580 already competes with 1060. There is a large gap between RX 580 and Vega 56, so expect Vega 11 to be slightly slower than GTX 1070 but priced lower.

    Will be interesting to see if they take a different approach with Vega 11, and try to keep closer to the frequency/power sweet-spot. Hopefully it's not simply a smaller, less capable chip, but again clocked as high as it'll go - power be damned :p

    For the mid-range hopefully they'll have more regard for keeping power budgets low. Otherwise, what's the point. A slightly faster 580 with similar power consumption would be another fail.

    Try phoning them up, and see if they'll knock the £110 off for the 'Free' games, as you don't want them, you just want the card :p

    ahaha. Wolfenstein could be really good though, Vega really needs a star game tbh
