Seems a great price for a Vega 64, better than a 2060 which costs a fraction more.

You not better off putting more towards and getting the new card?
A Vega 64 for £250 will be a more likely biting point considering it's about the same power as a RTX 2060 Super (£330) without the games, without the ray tracing bells and whistles, a blower style fan, older technology and massive power consumption....
Rx5700 is 320. Which tad faster, hopefully will be even more with upcoming drivers.

Someone is suggesting that 330 was a misprice, but I don't agree with that thought. The 2060 super will be sitting around the RX5700 mark as it makes business sense.

What do you mean you don't agree with that? The orders were cancelled due to the misprice, the MSRP for the 2060 SUPER is $399/£379. Retailers have no incentives to discount the cards as historically NVIDIA cards sell better than equivalent AMD ones.

Right now it makes sense to either go with a Vega 56 at £250 and undervolt/overclock it, or get the 5700 once the AIB models are out.

Stupid comment really. You can get a vega 56 or 64 and undervolt it (what you should do anyway) and it runs fine at low volts for alot less money.
Vega 64 is on par with 2060 (both at stock). Vega 64 generally has more room to overclock and undervolt than 2060 which kind of overclocks itself to get its stock speeds. The smart money to my mind is Vega 56 from a partner without blower fan. Then undervolt it and clock it up and you get to Stock Vega 64 performance which is more or less on par with 2060. The Vega tends to do better in the dx12 games and NVIDIA better in the dx11. I paid £240 for my sapphire Vega 56 ( hotukdeals deal last week) that’s the value card at this level of performance to my mind. Personally I’d have the new Amd rx 5700 card at £330 rather than this Vega 64. New AMD cards always improve a good bit due to driver enhancements as time goes on. In the industry they call this effect “amd fine wine”

Undervolt this, tweak that, blah blah. Classic defence of a card that was always blatantly inferior and a poor choice.

At least AMD fans now have an architecture that isn't patently garbage and inferior, so I suggest you advocate to buy that (RX 5700) rather than this.

Yup, I'd take a 5700 over this anyday, there's even a 5700 X on here for forty quid more. This is a crap deal.
Enthusiasts like to Tweek. The Vega came out nearly two years ago to compete with the 1070 and 1080 and it did that and more. The fact it is competing with the newer gen RTX cards is testimony to the fact that It’s architecture was not inferior to these cards . Indeed you could argue it’s actually a very over engineered product , (HBM2 memory! ) just see what gamers nexus have managed to get out of it by hitting it with some major voltage boosts. The NVIDIA cards would melt it you tried upping voltages out of spec like that.

Honest opinion, had vega 64 from gigabyte. Card was loud, super power hungry even after undervolt, had to repaste it and use thermal pads to lower temp so it wouldn’t throttle.

The 5700xt is the value card at the moment for £330. I'm waiting to see what amd do in the midrange, if they can release something that betters a 1660ti for £200 that could be the card to get, plus I refuse to spend more than £200 on a card out of principal.

No real need, the Vega 56 is a faster card than the 1660Ti from the bechmarks I've seen, and it can often be had cheaper than the 1660 too.

5700XT for £330 is a much better deal
Where is everyone getting the 5700XT at £330 from? The 5700 is £330.
As for under volting, my Vega 64 was literally a 10 second job. New AMD Drivers have an auto undervolt setting. I am running it, playing PUBG and BF V at 1440 locked at 75 FPS on Ultra, and the fan does not even kick in
I bought the pulse Vega 56, at £250 it's a great card for the price, especially with it's overclocking potential, I would have went for the 5700 series but don't fancy waiting for a non blower... Also it'll be a great deal more expensive. .
I think the Vega 56 is the best value card you can buy right now

This isnt a cold dealat all, so you pay some cash and trade an older card to get a 2060? that makes this cold?...ok.

Heat added.
It is a good deal for this card.

However...I recommend anyone who needs a graphics card to wait for a deal on the Raden 5700 (Navi). It's bound to be reduced below this price in the next 1-2 months. Current prices are above MSRP due to hype but they will stabilise soon enough. When they do, prices for Vega will slump.

Haha total system draw 250 watts?

Then you aren't loading the card to 100 percent with whatever you're playing, in fact you're not loading much in that system at all to only have a 250w consumption! Easy explanation.

This isn't a cliche, it's called engineering specifications. AMD themselves rate the Vega 64 at a 295w TDP at stock, reality is most versions pull more at full load with everything standard. Disagree if you wish, you're simply wrong though. The graph was supplied by someone else other than me- as evidence to this fact.

Not nuclear though is it! Intel make a couple of CPUs at 200W TDP! Yeah probably didn't do my research there, I just saw it was drawing 250w the other day in two point hospital
