I am pretty sure the performance of 5700xt is the same as 2070superfeminazi wrote: ↑ This is a good deal for a good price/performance card!
I have an MSI Evoke and it runs a bit louder than some other custom 5700XT models but I undervolt and slightly underclock it with AMD's software [AMD's drivers are their Achilles' heel but they generally work fine for me] and it performs very well and it runs much cooler than it does stock.
It is a LOT cheaper than a 2070 Super and only about 10% slower.
I really want to get an Ampere card when they come out or maybe "Big Navi" when it comes out if it is the real deal and if it is affordable and I am hoping to sell my 5700XT for a decent price to help offset the cost.
The 5700XT has been working really well for me at 1440p.

i had random black screen on my old 290 before.zentro wrote: ↑ I've been reading many complaints about driver issues as well. If I was looking for a new GPU, I'd either wait or go for NVIDIA this time around. Completely based on what I am hearing and the headaches some people are going through, especially with 5700s. I don't recall AMD being this bad a few generations ago.

Yeah I paid $500 for a RX 580 in 2017. The prices were really out of whack during that time...yannakm wrote: ↑ Crypto mining killed the GPU market even if GPU can't be profitable to mine anymore.
Not so long ago in 2016, AMD where launching RX 480 at $199. Then came the crazy price jump because of crypto mining, where people where willing to pay way more than the MSRP.
3 years later, a card for the same market is launching for $399. Is it faster? Of course, but is it too much to pay for a video card? Obviously.
I guess I will not upgrade my R7 265 and won't play any PC games for a while.
