WHAT IS THIS CODE DOING? Can we buy more than this video card?
You would pay this second hand off ebay
Worth 100 more for the Saphire 5700?

Its about 20% faster. If you're gaming at 1440p then this is adequate but that will be better. If you're at 1080p then really no point when this will handle everything.
Awesome price. Waaaa it’s a blower cooler . If you’re looking for a new decent GPU, the search ends here!

Clock it and you can get to within 5% of the 5700. heat.

Sub £250 Vega 64. Be rude not to!

If you can stretch the budget I really recommend getting the 64 version. It costs £45 more than the 56 (22% price increase) but it's also about 10% to 20% faster than the 56 depending on the game. Future proof yourself a bit more!

Either way you can't go wrong at this price performance bracket.
a very good deal now for either card, still the issue of blower noise and temps - so supposedly need to be undervolted etc to get them to be stable.
is this the same issue for the Vega 64?
No point going for this when the RX5700 is available.

Not 100% true. The Vega 56 can be had for under £200 and even with this code the cheapest RX 5700 is nearly £290.

I can say for certain the 5700 is not 50% faster than a Vega 56.

But yes it's a newer card, runs cooler and draws less power and will be supported longer into the future.

Depends on what people want but to say the Vega is redundant at this price point is incorrect.

How? The 56 has more OC headroom and the 64 only has an extra 8 CUs (14% more), I don't think 64 is worth it, especially as when you get to 64 you're in striking distance of the 5700.
I know the graphics card doesn’t matter as much as the cpu for photo and video editing but would this be a better idea than the 1660 for a new build?

Given the price difference between the two, yes. This is roughly 20% faster so better off to go with this, and easily 30% if you tweak a few settings. This will also be worth more should you come to sell it after an upgrade.

When everyone is talking about undervolting the 56 ref cards and then you're suggesting to actually OC it....

My comparison assumes you don't mess about with the reference cards / undervolt as most of the Vega community suggests due to temp and noise issues on these blower cards.

In that case the 10% to 20% performance increase I mentioned still stands.

You can do both. At stock, V64 is not that much quicker but the price is close enough to 5700 to make it less appealing. And undervolting fixes the thermals so if you like tinkering why wouldn’t you? The blower cards are loud but capable at keeping temps in check.
Just bought a Sapphire Rx590 nitro+ for my first build for £200. Would this be a better purchase? Looking to play max settings at 1080p on my TV but could forseeably branch out to 1440p when I can move to a dedicated monitor.

Yes, if you're able to return it. This is around 20% faster on average.
Edited by: "3anana" 23rd Sep
Outstanding, I've been on the lookout for one of these for a while now, and this is the time to pull the trigger.
Gotta love HUKD alerts!

Now I have to cross my fingers to find out if it'll fit in my ncase...
It should just about fit
56 is awesome for 1440p. Great deal.
Thanks OP, code can be used with Quidco for an additional 3%. Will this be good to use with Oculus Rift VR?
Will do for my new 3600 Ryzen rig for now, Just purchased Vega 64, thanks op
Will recoup £170/180 of the £242 if ever need something for 4K.
Deal hot as the card
Priced the same as the top 580 and 590 cards yet is significantly faster. Also far enough price wise under the 5700 that there isn't much value gain in the newer card. Hope to see some AIBs down this low but stock is running out nearly everywhere now that they'll likely never reach this price.

Heeeeeeeat

Thanks. Went for the Vega 64 as I thought the extra 40 quid would be worth it for my desire to eventually get a ultrawide 1440p monitor. Back the Rx590 goes!

It should handle that relatively well for the most part. I'd recommend undervolting for a little extra performance and lower heat/noise.

I've just done a bit of googling on this. Seems a bit overwhelming with no experience! Do you know of any simple resources to help explain the whys and the hows?

While it does seem like much at first, once you get down to it things are relatively simple. For the most part you put in a few numbers, hit save and then see if its all stable.

The main benefit here is that Vega cards tend to run higher voltage than is necessary. For the sake of example, a 56 operates at around 1200mv with stock clock profile. of the four that I've tried, they have all ran completely stable at 1000mv (or less). Even at 1100mv which is 100 less than stock, Ithey ran at 1650Mhz core which is slightly higher than a V64. The HBM is different as it has a lower operating voltage on the 56 bios and thus tends to not overclock as high, and that is where you see the most amount of performance increase (relative to stock) up to 1000Mhz.

The simplest ways to get a little more performance is to put the power target to +50%. This should generally give you around a 5% boost. The issue you then may run into is higher temps which in turn would lower your boost clocks as the card warms up. However if you apple an undervolt, you essentially get the +50% power target benefits without the added heat and power draw as your card is operating at a lower voltage. The power saving usually tends to be around 50W-60W from what I've measured, so that is simply excess heat the cooler doesn't have to worry about.

Rather than Wattman I would recommend using OverdriveNTool as it is simpler and more reliable. If you need any further assistance on that feel free to DM me and I'll send you some sample configs to try out.

Nice one! Thanks so much. I'll hopefully try the build this weekend if everything arrives in time. Will do some research and get in touch if I need some help
Excellent card for price. Noisy and needs undervolting and messing around with fan curves but easy enough to do with a google and gets you something that can handle anything below 4k with ease
I've got an Asus DirectC II HD7970 sitting here doing nothing really,Dose anyone know if the heatsink holes are the same spacing apart, It's an old card, but it has a fantastic cooler.

Whats the point of getting water cooling when you can just buy a better aftermarket cooler card like Sapphire.
