Absolute garbage of a card with ASUS refusing to acknowledge its issues. There is a reason they are trying to clear these at low prices. Avoid and go for Sapphire/Powercolor/XFX!!

If you want your GPU to last longer than a single sitting of your favourite shooter, AVOID this card, no matter what the price.

Wow. I had no idea. I have the blower model. The original sapphire one. It gets HOT and loud if you set it to logical common sense fan speeds. I thought that the 5700 xt with better coolers would be better and quieter.
Don't do it

Yeah exactly that is what most people would expect. It's worse that ASUS didn't recall this card and continue to sell it. I managed to get the saphire nitro+ for £364 a few weeks. Great card.
Isn't the gigabyte version the best one? According to gamers nexus?

Gigabyte Aorus, Powercolor Red Devil, Sapphire Nitro and MSI Gaming X are the top four.
The XFX THICC cards are also good now that XFX have revised the design to fix the higher than normal fan speed, vrm and memory temps and will even accept RMA of the initial batch. Unlike ASUS.

I bought the XFX THICC III ultra a couple of weeks ago and I confirm.
Its super quiet under load but for real you can barely notice it !
I have 4 fans in my case 2 in and 2 out and
72c is the max I got it after stress test.
I don't care about LED as my pc case is old and doesn't have a window.
I am very happy with my purchase.

The best card is the Nitro Special Edition, then its the Nitro and Red Devil. The Gigabyte is great value, but not rated as highly as the other three, which basically hit 2070S performance while being silent. This is the worst card.

Brand new. There was a 20% event on ebay about 3 weeks ago. I got it from eBuyer and it came with a free game out of 2 choices plus 3 months of game pass for pc. But they messed up and sent me 2 codes and AMD messed up and added more allocation to my account so I managed to get both games. Borderlands 3 and Ghost Recon.

Yeah that'll be fine. I've got a 550w psu. The card under load is nowhere near that. It's about 380w under load from the reviews. Normally that say take the power under load the. Add 20% for headroom. Just watch if you have loads of case LEDs, hard drives and USB hot okates plugged in yeah I was happy with my deal. I was replacing a Powercolor RX580 that was loud.

Different part numbers so not the same but why would you still buy an overpriced ASUS product given their track record? Go for one of the other mentioned brands. Even with poorly designed coolers aside ASUS support is atrocious, in comparison to Gigabyte for instance.
Have ASUS managed to work out how to cool the VRMs or have they dropped the ball with this like they did with the Vega cards? I am surprised they don’t seem to do anything right when it comes to thermal designs and engineering...

Watched that video while writing that. So VRM cooling poor, GDDR6 cooling non-existent, but at least the card looks nice even if it’s mostly fake shroud!

Yeah i agree go for the gigabyte model, gamer nexus knows more than us as he has 10 different models at the end of the day.
Was this the card that ghd cooler is do loose you can flex the cooler by squeezing it (effectively improving cooling, by making the cooler are actually touch gbr chips rather than float above them ) ?

The Gigabyte Gaming OC one gets good reviews IIRC, not for being the best overall but for being a good all rounder that doesn't break the bank. Not read a review on the other ones.

Regarding Vega cards, I would suggest nobody buys them. They have a hardware defect that causes them to crash under load making it necessary to hard reset your pc. Had one for about 6 months and had nothing but issues. Did plenty of research but nothing would stop the issue. You can minimise it but not eradicate it. Shame because they perform really well and are amazing value for money but unstable.

I’m sure you said this before. I have 4 and none of them have ever crashed. Back when it was a thing I mined with 2 of them and they ran 24/7 no reboots needed for 11 months til I retired them to the standard office PCs. I can only assume you have a weak or unstable PSU. All the cards were reference design Sapphire or MSI branded with Samsung HBM2.

Yes i have said this before. My psu is more than powerful enough. My card had the hynix ram. In case it isn't clear my psu is 850w.

Ok, well I have 4 cards that haven’t ever crashed. So in both cases, it’s anecdotal - you can’t say they are all bad and I can’t say they are all good just what I have seen myself. There aren’t many Vega cards left in the channel now as they’re EOL and anyone looking at a 5700 XT probably isn’t considering the Vega anyway. And while Seasonic make good PSUs, I had a Seasonic P860 Platinum-rated which went bad. I still suggest you look at the PSU but it’s up to you.

I know of other people with the extra same issue. I have a rx 5700xt now and have never experienced the issue. And previously the rx580 again never had the issue. If the psu was at fault then the issue would persist despite the gfx card changes. It was only when I replaced the vega 56 did the issue go away.

It’s anecdotal and coincidental. Many AMD gamers have loved their Vega cards from launch and only complained about high power consumption and heat but that was somewhat expected. Both RX 580 and 5700 have much lower power requirements under load.

That's an example. Just google vega 56 black screen, and you get the same story from many many people. My card was brand new too. Maybe it is bad ram used. As you say, yours had Samsung ram, mine had hynix.

Did you read the thread?
I spotted it straight away:
"GPU: Sapphire Reference Vega 56 w/ 64 BIOS + Morpheus II"

This idiot flashed a 64 BIOS onto a 56 which is known to cause black screen issues permanently even if you flash the BIOS back. Can't comment on the others but that's not a good start.

Apologies I thought it was the same link I found months ago. community.amd.com/thr…319

Again just an example. But also note that vega 56 can and has been successfully flashed to vega 64. But that aside this issue is not a one off occurrence and has affected many people. Long story short, the only fix for me was to replace the card with the 5700xt. I wasn't going to give nvidia my money. That company rips people off. Very happy with the 5700xt. Absolute beast of a card. Shame. I lived my Vega 56

I only mentioned the Vega in response to ASUS releasing a shoddy Vega card and it looks like they've done it again, I wasn't suggesting that someone buy a Vega over this. You can flash a 56 to a 64 with Samsung HBM2 (I think) but you do lose some of the outputs even if you flash back, so it's not a perfect thing by any stretch. So anyone that says they have a black screen on a Vega who has flashed can pretty much be ignored. A lot of the other issues are people with weak PSUs and it's incredibly intolerant of those - I am not saying you are one of them, but if you read the threads, many replies are that the PSU is too weak. RX 5700 is a good card, but I wouldn't buy the ASUS.

HMB is very sensitive and easy to damage which really the major issue. Of the handful of Vega cards i've had thankfully never killed them in such a way but the Strix 64 was pretty terrible. .
