^^ this. It's gross. I won't buy into it. I grabbed the 5700xt when it was on sale with ebay codes for £330 recently, and that's 10% too high IMO. The 2070 Super should be £350-ish IMO. GPU prices just never came back down properly after the mining boom and since Nvidia was so far ahead in mindshare and halo-tier performance. I worry we may never recover

Not a deal at basically MSRP.
Always makes me tut with a head shake when people down vote FE cards. I'll love anyone of them to show me a discount on one.

Thanks OP for the notify

Thanks for this. Been looking for a restock for days!
What are these coolers like?

What's the cooler like on this compared to third party cards?

Take it third-party cards are better, but is there a big difference?

Third party coolers are generally better but the founders edition cards are the better silicon lottery cards (better for over locking and such)

Thanks. I'm undecided on this vs a custom 5700XT. Was looking at the Sapphire Pulse Navi, but that's £425. Not sure if the slight performance improvement + ray tracing is worth it for an extra £50? I have a 1440p 144hz monitor.

I'd personally go for the 5700XT but the performance between the cards is pretty close. A third party cooler will give you lower temps and generally nicer asthetics so it's down to your preference.
Fans won't turn off when not idle, otherwise I would have bought this... will wait for my amazon order from July, sigh

2070S is faster, better drivers as the Navi ones are a mess and a couple of free games you can keep or flog on.

I would do the 5700XT, rtx is a gimmick with ray tracing being pure marketing unless you can afford to SLI 2080s.

I would call it an investment in the market as well. Better competition means better products and pricing. I think the AMD model of just targeting the mid tier with volume is the better one. It's good for the market and I'll be upgrading to AMD in a month for that reason alone.

This is what no competition looks like. Nvidia has a monopoly in the high end.
Came back to say thanks to OP, I have been hunting for 2070S for a while now and oh boy! there isn't much stock out there at reasonable price or u have to pay £520+. This is Better option than XT which is no no for CEMU, Fake app, RT.

To give some advice, what you should do is first look at bench marks. YouTube is a good example as many people on their run benchmarks like its their jobs.... oh wait...

That said, Here is the GPU bench results with 11k submissions gpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…048


It shows the 5700XTs, average benchmark score is better than the 2070 super. yet a boat load cheaper. So just so you are looking at more than one comparison point. I would however, point out, different cards do better different games. So look up the games and devs you will likely buy from to get the "best" value for your use case

Another user mentioned AMD drivers being a mess, for certain games, yeah thats true. They historically have had bad drivers at launch. However over time, many you-tubers, tech sites and benchmarks have shown, the AMD cards age better, once the drivers are settled, they have massive gains, compared to their launches. NVIDIA, however seem to have slowed down.

I bought a few 1440p 144hz monitors, but my 1070 I had for 3ish years was not doing it, so i went to the Facebook market place and picked up a 1080ti for 360 quid. I don't have any issues now. So might be worth looking in the 2nd hand markets before hitting the buy button.

And as a finally thing to take away, make sure your monitors are either G-sync compatible (not all free sync monitors are) or support freesync 2.

Hope this helps!

Userbernchmark is at best misleading.

Yes, you should look at benchmarks, but gfx card benchmarks are only directly comparable if all other variables are eliminated or tightly controlled. E.g. benchmarks at 1080p will also be affected by CPU performance to varying degrees depending on the game being benchmarked.

I would suggest Gamers Nexus as a very good starting point for benchmarks. Hexus.net also provides comparable Benchmark results keeping all system parameters except the gfx card constant, at a controlled ambient temp. I would start with those two sources.

Not so right to compare something purchased using ebay discount code against a MSRP. Plus do not forget that the 5700XT runs super hot and super loud (despite being a 7nm chip) as compared to the Nvidia cards which run cool and silent and offer Raytracing.

The reference XT runs hot but it's not super loud, just loud.
anandtech.com/sho…/15

It's still much better than the stock coolers in the Vega range.
Ray tracing is still its infancy and so far I think the implementation leaves a lot to be desired so I would leave it off anyway.

Why comparing with Vega, the worst? I would exclude Vega as it's an architectural mistake ;-)

I'm not comparing them because of the discounts ... I'm saying that BOTH of them are overpriced, as an effect of two major factors: (1) the mining boom in 2017/2018 that blew GPU prices up to ridiculous levels, and (2) Nvidia having no competition at the top/halo-tier product range allowing them to stretch their top-tier prices across successive generations.

Launch Prices:
Kepler:
GTX770 £329
GTX780ti £559

Maxwell:
GTX970 £259
GTX980ti £549

Pascal:
GTX1070 £365
GTX1080ti £699

---(this is where the mining boom sent GPU prices to ridiculous levels)---

Turing:
RTX2070 £460
RTX2080ti £1,099

My complaint should be OBVIOUS at this point. The relative performance WITHIN generations has stayed approximately the same (at first glance at least). The relative performance gains ACROSS generations has decreased significantly for Turing compared to previous generational gains.

Secondly ... I have an RX 5700xt. Are you trying to tell me how my card runs? lol - the reference RX 5700xt runs hot and/or loud at stock, but with a single-click Undervolt improves reasonably, and with a proper undervolt/overclock is neither hot nor loud (mine sits at 70C with the fans under 2k at approx 1900mhz boost rock solid). The fact that I have approx 95% of the £475 RTX 2070 Super performance at £330 with the 5700xt is interesting, but not my point.

Again, my point is that based on historical precedent, plus the actual physical size of the die and the cost of the components of the graphics cards inside (GPU, RAM, cooler, PCB, etc) means that these MID-RANGE graphics cards *SHOULD* occupy the £300 price point (+/- £50).

My complaint is that the entire GPU market has suffered an opportunistic increase in standard prices which we haven't recovered from fully, hence why people are now happily paying nearly £500 for xx70 tier GPUs which were traditionally around £300 in the past.

Correct. On both accounts. Based on personal experience.

Also (for the other guy) - Vega was not an "architectural mistake". It remains a fantastic GPU that came (much like Navi) with an unnecessarily high voltage at stock that was a significant mistake from AMD, tarnishing the launches. Give both Navi and Vega a -100mV undervolt straight off the bat, and they will sit at max boost clocks with -10C and quieter fans.

I doubt you paid 245 for a new 1070, unless it was somewhat recently so abit silly to compare the pricing when the pascal cards are much older. Youll probably be able to get a 2070 super for 250-300 in several years time.

Thanks for the feedback! Here's hoping we get our cards soon
This actually seems a great price. What am I missing compared to the other 2070 supers on the market @>£530?
The AIB cards generally have better power delivery, better cooling and better overclocking ability. However, these also come at a cost, and the stock 2070 cards are generally viewed as being very good as far as stock, “founders edition” cards go. It’s up to you, if you have the cash and think an extra couple of frames is worth it, go for the more expensive AIB cards. Be careful, the cheaper AIB cards are often worse than this stock card and have removed ports or worse cooling. Stay away from blower cards generally.

Every thing @CarlW said plus, personally unless u gonna spend nearly 100 quid more for evga or Asus variant.. I would just stick with this plus with 2 games this is better value.

I have also purchased one, thanks OP

Same here. Apparently the delivery van is currently 5 minutes away. Same to you my friend, enjoy your new card!
1. Look at the poster above, the 5700XT can easily be had for £330. Pm if you want a link, I got mine for £321 new.
2. The 5700 XT reference is fantastic. I can play 5 hours and it doesn't got over 76C, ignore reviews, they were al written up before the latest set of drivers in which the undervolt is fantastic. None of the reviews used this feature, as far as I can tell, you tick a box and the card UVs. It is not loud in the slightest, I havent heard it once while gaming.
3. This means you can get an XT, on average 9% slower, for £150 less than this card.
4. Get an XT.
