I can't wait for these cheaper amd equivalents to hit the streets

They did. About 4 months ago. It's the 5700.
Haha you ended up posting it!

Intel potentially releasing something too. AMD might be releasing a much more powerful APU. Even if AMD and nVidia do little with their flagship cards the prices might shift a fair bit.

AMD is not expected to be the same old story. Their share price is now at an all time high based on 2020/2021 expectations to Intel & Nvida (consumer and server side).

Yeah the 5700 is about 10% faster than this I believe, and can be had well under £300. Then the 5700xt is faster than a 2070 for about £350. Despite what people are saying, they wont replace these cards until around September. That will be a 12 month lifecycle. There is a rumoured 5900xt out in the next couple of months which is about 2080 performance but looking like £800 or more.

prices won't shift. they are already overhoarding 2080ti chips no one wants to buy.

new cards will keep same price as prev generation or even drop in price.

nvidias ceo wanted to scalp people over new RTX technology which 2years later is barely adapted.

no one will fall for same joke 2nd time a row.

really? the 2060 super is better in nearly all tests ive seen
This is the card I've had on my pcpartpicker list. £100 cheaper is a cracking deal. I'll order this and it gives me time to figure out the rest of my build. The case is my problem area at the mo. Too much choice and looking for a case with reasonably good noise reduction and good airflow.
5700XTs go on sale for pretty much same price give or take £10, but this is still a good deal if you're looking for a 2060super

Fractal Design Meshify C has good air flow(damn and for some reason double the price it use to be). Look for something with a mesh front.

It would be better to put of any graphic card upgrading until later in the year.
McTabish03/01/2020 20:46

use benchmark sites for the 2060 super vs 5700 which u said was up to 10% faster?not one site ive seen as shown the 5700 being a faster card, quite the opposite,

yes the 5700xt verson is closer maybe a little better than the 2060 super, but the 5700 xt as known issues, one being overheating when playing games, and also driver issues, which for me as put me off that card personally

I think the summary on one site pretty much sums up the 5700xt card
"Out of the box the reference 5700 XT has high burst speeds but under load it overheats and therefore drops frames to the extent that it is more or less unusable for demanding games like PUBG"

"The reference 5700 XT is great for beating benchmarks, but it is not so great for playing games. Thousands of people purchased the reference card expecting flagship performance, instead they got a shopping trolley with a V6 engine."

that's to name just a few reasons why most are put off with the 5700 xt range at the mo

I read or watched somewhere recently that as the GDDR6 VRAM that is being used for new GPUs is going to be in high demand there may be price rises similar to the Bitcoin mining recently. The new Xbox's and Playstation will be using this as well which is what will really be pushing things. Bigger price drops might not happen until that demand plateaus.

Price of GDDR6 won't have a significant toll on the price of the cards, because the price for cards is FIXED for another 2-3 years. Fluctuations will be severe but once the dust settles down there is no room to make a adjustments due to "high RAM demad" that's not how MACRO scale work of this industry.
Nvidia will determine RPP and the rest will stick to it. Approx margin on single card sold Founders Edition is 20-35% per card.
So you can estimate yourself how much money they make. The more expensive the bigger profit margin is.

2060 super is about 10% ish faster than the 5700 but more expensive. And RTX is utterly pointless.

So, essentially better. But you pay more.

Unpopular opinion though this may be - give RTX more time. Allow developers time to do something with the technology. And surely if the RTX cores are surplus then there will be a patch to turn them into more standard graphics processing power.
RTX is just a gimmick right now. This card wont be able to hold its own even in RTX games as it just doesnt have the power.

A 5700 beats or matches the 2060 Super for about £50 less and a 5700XT beats or matches 2070 Super for about £75 less.

Sorry, I dont see this as a good deal unless you are happy to pay the Nvidia tax.
I'd rather pay a few quid extra for a much better card with more reliable drivers and less issues with high temperatures anyday, and also future proof my gaming.with the 5700 u dont

Also some 5700 cards are MORE expensive than the 2060 supers ,which makes this an even better deal than amd

Absolutely, if you working using CUDA cores, then the 2060 is great. Apologies.
Given cyberpunk should have decent raytracing features built in and I really want to play control with ray tracing on, a RTX card is tempting.

Nvidia is kinda screwed by the fact that game devs basically develop for consoles at the moment and those consoles are using amd apu therefore they are a couple of years ahead on the features therefore they are struggling to justify the additional cost.

A real lack of nvidia rumours make me worried that we will see a late q3 release for the 2100 series of cards

This card won't run RTX well enough to be worthwhile. Even 1080p with RTX would be struggling a bit for decent framerate.
Think pistol with a sniper scope levels of pointlessness.

I am not a massively competitive gamer so just going to be looking for 1080p60 but yeah it looks like this card struggles with Control with raytracing features on. Rockpapershotgun says it gets 51 fps at 1080p.

I might try to hold off to the next gen of rtx cards at least I know what cyberpunk needs. Also depending on what build I stick the gpu in, I might be power constrained.
Tired.Ben.Affleck03/01/2020 19:04

£800?another DOA on arrival?casus Radeon VII.


Sorry to be clear that would compete with the 2080ti and that is about £1,000 most places so it will be competitive but knowing AMD, they will find a way to mess something up.
With new consoles on the horizon, we are due a generational leap for PC graphics cards that should be able to maintain a better 4k performance. Defo holding off for a year on graphics cards. My 1070 will do fine til then for 1440p content.
The 2060`s or S model, just are not worth it any more with the new gen out later this year just to expensive.
