I got this deal last month when it was on

Card runs well. I overclocked it out of the box to 1500mhz and 2200 memory. No issues what soever. I made a custom fan curve and on load it hovers around 75-78c with 90% fan rpm.

As for the games, you will be given an AMD gift card and you make an account with that key on the AMD site. Once you activate it they will tell you to link your account to redeem the games(uplay for division, steam for resident evil). So it might be a bit tricky trying to sell it because whoever you sell it to will have to login with there account to link the game.

Anyway hope that helps in case people are thinking of selling it.

Oh and btw the card runs division 60fps smooth on high.


Edit

If you dont care about these games but you still are willing to spend $250+ then you should probably go with the evga 1660.
Is the hardware verification a one-time thing or it also has to be done when you link the steam / uplay accounts? Basically can I buy the AMD code online without an AMD product?

Thanks guys
Be nice to people k?

When you buy the card, you get a code.

That code has to be input at amdrewards.com after you create an account there. This is when the hardware verification happens.

Some time later (about a week later in my case) individual links appear in your account for each game, that will link your
steam /Uplay account to redeem your games.

As such, if the amdrewards account is created using a dummy email account, you could sell that by giving the login info. Unfortunately, I don't see how you could sell individual links, so I think it's both at once... Unless you yourself claim one game and then give the login info for the buyer to redeem the other. But I don't see selling both to different people.

That's what I did, runs Division 2 at 1080p60 on high except I turned down volumetric fog to medium.

The person will have access to my AMD reward account to redeem all 3 games.

Just out of curiosity, I have a Nvidia 1080ti S.T.R.I.X with 11GB OC that I bought last year for around $1.2K

If I bridge 2 of these Radeon cards ($500), would I be able to get better results in terms of specs then the 1 card I'm running right now? Seems the core clock is only a few 100 mhz difference. I really want to switch to radeon because the Nvidia Gsync monitors are just ridiculous in price.

I bought this exact card during holiday sales a while back so I'll share my experience with this card.

I was facing periodic blinking screen problems and I thought I had a faulty card... after searching on Google, I think I narrowed down the problem to Wattman not giving the card enough power at the default 0% Power Limit. Once I increased that setting, I think my blinking problems went away. Also my undervolt settings reset in Wattman after waking from Windows sleep using the latest drivers... I don't know if that is AMD's or Windows being stupid but it is annoying since I find the card runs hot at the default voltages.

I don't own Nvidia cards but I'm pretty certain that Nvidia recently allowed their cards to work with Freesync monitors... you probably just need a driver update. You should probably look more into that as the change was made sometime in the beginning of the year.

Also, most people seem to suggest avoiding dual card setups as performance to price isn't worth it and dual card has largely fallen out of favor... devs not optimizing much for it anymore. Your 1080ti should still be a beast.
