No Async compute and only 3.5GB full speed GDDR5 ram. Its no surprise Nvidia are offering free games with these GPU's at this point.
Wait for the GDC conference in March before making up your mind for a future GPU and want facts.
;-)
If you are Nvida fan and want these games then it is a good deal.
No vote either way.

Superb deal, the GTX 970 is not the current best selling discrete GPU by a long stretch for nothing.

Should get £50 for the games if you sell on the right forums.
You could buy a Wii U and half a dozen of its essential exclusives for the price.

Terrible comparison to be honest. I have a Wii U but pc gaming is on another level to console. And half a dozen exclusives? There aren't even 6 games I consider essential on the Wii U (granted this is an opinion)... PC has more than I can count.

Having said the above, this gpu should be sub £200 by now, not the best time to buy it.

AMD also give away games to increase GPU sales. The GTX 970 is selling well.

There's currently no proof that hardware Async compute will make much difference in future games. The major benefit to DX12/Vulkan is the reduced CPU overhead.

Cold from me, this is a blower style card, I had a very similar gigabyte version of this and it was very loud and inefficient. Had to strip it apart and put an aftermarket open syle fan - imprived noise and performance.
lol £500 on a gpu, good for you m8 too rich for me though.

Funny though £500 on a gpu but only £5 a game, that did make me laugh buddy, I could not condone anything above £250 gpu wise, games on the other hand it really depends on what it is but really I can't see me paying as low as £5 a game, would be nice though.

The only comparison that can be made between the two is that both are overpriced as they are coming to the end of their shelf life.

Something's wrong there fella. With SLId 660s and a 2500K I'm getting 40+ on The Division on medium...

Probably you don't know this sort of expression.
But if you would know that most of us are called very nicely "Human Resources", but it means less nice things, you would know what would they mean by "farming people".

Good plan if it save you a few quid. If you are going to do that however, may I recommend selling it on before the middle of March when there will be some big announcements being made.
The second hand market will be flooded with Nvidia GPU's after that.
;-)
I've played the beta of this game with the 970 on maxed out at 3840x2160 which this card does with ease. The game looks good but not outstanding and it quite a way behind games like metal gear 5 in looks.,personally I found this game totally boring. The NPC AI is almost as bad as in fallout 4 but nothing is that bad. No I was not impressed with the division with its mundane repetition of wave after wave of killing. Even the action is poor. I've never shot a perpson in the head with a machine gun and has them stand up and take a whole magazine. The game is deleted and I shan't be buying it.
This card hasn't dropped in price for the last 18 months. GPU industry reached a brick wall? Or game developers not pushing the boundaries far enough?

That depends on what sort of case you have though. Anyone with a normal ATX case would probably benefit from avoiding blower coolers, sure. I have a Silverstone FT03 however, and given the arrangement of the case fans it makes much more sense to use blower type coolers. Wish I'd known that when I bought my current GPU, woops!

GPU Pricing in the UK is based on the dollar rate. In the last 18 months that has dropped around 18-19%.

Good joke. This guy has dual 980 ti's and can barely run at 4k not even maxed out. youtu.be/Ac3…Y-U

The 970 is an OK 1080p card but for more recent games anything above needs a stronger card if you want to turn the settings up

That's funny, since you're not spending more than £5 on a game then you might aswell go for a £5 gpu aswell because that can probably play games that have been out long enough to even be that price..
I would hold fire on buying any new cards unless you simply can't wait. The new cards will completely smoke these. If nvidia is your thing then the 1070 will be around a 980ti if not faster for around this sort of money.
Personally I hope Polaris will be a great card otherwise good bye to descent jumps in gpu performance.

Dont you mean April when the GPU Technology conference is.

Also what's the wink for, are you the only person who knows about Pascal and Polaris, for which the initial versions will the the low/mid class versions spouting GDDR5X not the HBM2 monsters to replace the TI's and X's which will be Q3/4.

It's not optimized yet. 50/60 50/60 scaling is bad!
