In no benchmarks I have seen where ceterus parabus is applied,and I have seen a lot, do I see the 5700 XT better the 2080s - that is just ridiculous. The 5700xt is a great card, but is comparable to a 2070s. Even the much hailed Red devil 5700 XT was not as good as hyped. Notice the 1% lows.

One thing I do hate about benchmarks is the 1080p - who plays at this resolution right?! but even at 1440p and 4k the 5700xt falls short of beating the 2080s.
Still a more than capable card and a worthy contender - I actually wouldnt recommend buying a card now at all. Nvidia are about to announce the 2080 Ti super probably for the price of a house, but this will prompt some movement in the card market prices. So hang fire.

Interesting, I'm not up on current GFX cards but I have to buy one for my son, i have a budget of about £600 and was looking at the 2070S but sounds like the 5700XT might be a better option?

I'd chat with him about it first. Some people are REALLY against AMD over Nvidia and although the AMD is better value, he might play certain games where 2070/2080 makes sense for him. AMD does have driver issues with the latest games and although they get quickly resolved, if he is looking to play games flawlessly on release day with his mates, for example, he may prefer the 2070/2080. Personally, I don't really care too much about the latest PC Games, but my eyes were opened the other day when the Oculus Link came out and anyone with an AMD card has been left without support, as they are kicking off the beta only with Nvidia.

5700xt if you want a excellent card at a better price
Great price for this card! Been looking for a 2080S for a bit now and even used prices are hovering around £6xx. Might wait until BF sales though.

For relatively high end gaming the 5700xt is the best bang for your buck by a distance, if he prefers Nvidia I think the 2070S is better value, the 2080s doesn't offer enough extra performance to justify the huge price jump in my opinion.

Both do patch their drivers pretty quickly upon new game releases. Its not as bad as some make it out to be

I know about the AMD vs Nvidia stuff been going on for years, I was in to PCs in the days when AMD drivers were really bad. He will go with what I say after some research

He primarily plays Fortnite which I know is CPU intensive so I have to also upgrade his i5 8400.

The amd driver issue isn't nowhere near as bad as it once was. As your son's i5 8400 - check to the intel cpu upgrade path if not look at a ryzen 3600.. I have no idea to your budget for cpu and mobo if that is required.

You can play fortnite on 1080 Epic 60fps+ on an RX 590.
Are you gonna get a new system or upgrade your current system?
What are you system specs?
What resolution do you want? 1080p 1440p
And what frame rate
A 5700XT for Fortnite is only worthwhile if you're streaming whilst using an aimbot...

That wasn't my point, the 5700xt's performance in a game as demanding and scale-able as RDR2 hints that the 5700xt will age very well as games become even more intensive, and at half the price of the 2080S.

The reason they do it is because they aren't gonna get cpu bottlenecking issues. It makes sense to a degree but you do need to see higher res settings to make better sense of things.

I'm not claiming the 5700XT is a better card than the 2080S, it's far more comparable to the 2070S in most games, but it's performance in a game as demanding as RDR2 shows that's it is likely to hold it's own with cards costing £200-300 more for the foreseeable future as games become more demanding.

i5 8400

An i5 8400 is perfectly capable of running Fortnite and most modern titles fluidly.

For which titles?

The 8400s single core performance is still solid. You will struggle to find titles that will cause a 2070 to be bottlenecked by it, aside from really cpu heavy titles such as ARMA 3.
Fortnite is one of the easiest games to run of the last few years, it's very well optimised.

Doesn't mention any games it just asks for the chip and gfx card, I thought I read Fornite was CPU heavy, i think his currently runs at 70% in Fornite, but sure on settings though and also 144htz should make it work harder?
Do you think this is a worthwhile upgrade to my ROG strix gtx 1080? I'm noticing I'm having to reduce my settings quite a bit more now to get 60fps on my 4k monitor, even 1800p isn't getting me there on newer titles :/

I got my strix for about £350 though a year or so before rtx dropped so this seems like a hefty price to pay for this type of upgrade. I doubt I'll get much for the 1080 now.

To true but unfortunately AMD is about 2 years behind with there GPU's doesn't leave people with much choice if they want the best GPU for gaming. Nvidia can put any price on there GPU's as they just don't have the competition GREED always wins.

Ah yes 144hz does require a more powerful CPU. But the 8400 is still capable of hitting 144hz on Fortnite. A gtx 1060 and i5-6500 can hit 144hz on high settings, so an 8400 will have no issues.
One point of note that I don't think anyone's mentioned yet is that apparently, MSI's Ventus line of cards have the worst performing coolers compared to MSI's other cards, especially in terms of noise. TechDeals hates them.
I've been using an MSI Ventus RTX 2080 since Jan. Someone posted a deal for £544 and I had to go for it.
Never had an issue with it being noisy, although I do use a quiet case (Fractal Define R5).

No, not really, I would wait till the next generation drops. I have a 1080 myself and I can still run everything at 1440p 100fps plus on nearly all games plus streaming as well at 1080p.
I still dont get why any manufacturer would but a turd cooler on cards? Theys save money on postage from rmas alone spending a fiver more on the cooler... theres just no excuse really. Specially on top tier cards :/ wtf is the point?

Ok thanks for the advice. Maybe there's just been some crazy hard titles to run recently that are making be think too much!

I like to game stream too, apparently the newer rtx series have better encoders so I was wondering if they reduce latency more or just produce higher quality images with the same latency :/ nobody has been able to tell me that, even from Nvidia when I've asked on twitter and on their forums!

Anyway, I read somewhere that the new cards are out next year so not long to wait for those I guess.
