This is the newly released 1660 Super which fits in behind the ti but above the original 1660. Confusing? Yeah, just a little. It features the same chipset as the 1660 but they slapped on GDDR6 and that helps lift performance to within average 5% of the ti which makes it the best price/performance ratio for this segment (for now till the RX5500 launches but lord knows when).

Awesome. Now look into this light.
Wouldn't buy this at all personally.

The 5700 goes to 270/280 in the ebay sales, and absolutely floors this card. Example
Shadow of Tomb Raider 1440p Dx12
1660 Super: 23fps
Rx 5700: 69fps

So for 30% more cash you're getting a card which will be at least 50% more powerful, but in particular cases over 100%.

I think if you're buying this card to play at 1440, you're doing it all wrong. This is for 1080 only and you won't find a better value at this price range till the Rx 5500 are out.
Also, not everyone wants to shell out close to £300, that's why we have different budget categories...

Right, but irregardless the 5700 is just better, 1080p or nay, and it's not 30% better, its 50-100% better. If someone has spent £600 on a gaming PC, and can spend another £60 (10%) to increase performance by on average 60%, it would be madness not to.

Firstly, you're not paying just £60 more. For an AIB 5700 it is at least £310 and upwards so you're talking an extra £100. The £280 figures are during ebay sales which will also apply to these cards in future thus maintaining the gap.
Secondly, 1080 or 1440 makes a huge difference because you buy what is appropriate to your system's needs. In most cases this kind of card will deliver more than playable framerates (above 60fps) on high/ultra settings in most games at 1080 but not 1440. That's why it matters.
techspot.com/rev…er/ Scroll down to the cost per frame, this card is value for money at its budget category. The 5700 is also fantastic for its budget category too but you can't lump it all together and think everyone has an extra £100 at their disposal.
Casually glanced at prices today of these to see where they sit.

Cheaper at overclockers (£210) even with delivery charges:overclockers.co.uk/pal…tml

If you just want a single fan then this is a bit cheaper: amazon.co.uk/dp/…c=1

Note, using amazon top up also gets you a further £6 off any cards there

You may as well just go with any number of better dual fan options for an extra fiver such as this: ebuyer.com/914…-oc

Can't vote hot for this, sorry.

It's about 30 percent faster at 1080p. On sale with a good ebay code if you're willing to wait, a blower 5700 will cost about 30 percent more than a dual fan £220 1660 Super. So that's ~ £280.

Only with the sale does it actually meet up to price versus performance, and only models with crappy blower coolers versus better versions of these models.

5700 is a good card but it doesn't make this GPU worthless, they sit bang inside the price/performance sweet spot.

but its AMD, it will overheat, its performance will be hit with shoddy driver support and its resale value wont hold up

Edit - iim a fan of Ryzen but i just wouldnt touch an AMD gpu.

It's amusing reading GPU comments. It seems that no matter what GPU is posted there's always someone saying that you should pay a bit more for something better. It's the same with comments for most smartphones and dash cams.

Check out used prices of vega 56 on eBay. They are higher than used 1070 (I should know, I just sold my 1070).
Just bought an RX5700 and the drivers seem fine now. Not had a single problem.
The 1070 was excellent. My RX5700 (msi pulse) doesn’t run any hotter. It is very slightly louder under load but not much in it (it’s not a blower card - I certainly wouldn’t recommend a blower card unless you have rubbish airflow in you case).

This is a deals website, and you are fudging numbers here. The cheapest price, right now, is 294.72 and it's for a blower. The cheapest non blower is 333.48.

hotukdeals.com/dea…056


hotukdeals.com/dea…447

The historical low, that I can see, for a blower card (hot, loud, bad) is 286: hotukdeals.com/dea…240


Doing some simple math, 286-215= 71 quid. And that's if you had a time machine. Right now, it's 80 quid higher. And that's with a blower card. If you bought a non blower card, you'd be paying 118 quid more.

Also, it's worth noting the 1660 Super OC's *VERY* well. Some models are coming in at over 10%. And yes, that's with just a single fan.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

The Palit has a higher base clock (It's already OC'd a bit) but it is doing well too:
techpowerup.com/rev…tml

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

(This last one was the worst of the 5).

Also, here's the StormX Review for the *non* super version.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

It pulled in 15.3%, one of the top increases for any 1660 card (non super) so don't write this one off just because it's a single fan.

(I think the 'just a little more game is completely pointless by the way.... But I'll bite)

While we are at the 'just a bit more' game, the 2070 Super goes for 475. That's 'just a bit more' and it stomps the 5700. And you can actually play 1440p games with that card without limitations.

I bought a 5700 the other day for a new build, it costs £275 on Flubit this minute. Just pay in flubit points.

The 2070 Super is almost double the cost. The 5700 is 30% more expensive than a 1660 Super. Not comparable, not sure if serious on this point.

The 5700 hits a 10% overclock easily too, powerplay tables.

The blower 5700 is great, if it's not your thing fine. I don't think it got an average review of 4.5 stars (the ref card) if reviewers think the blower is bad, there was a single reccomendation from gamersnexus to wait for aibs. People on the net cling to that, fact is the card is very well reviewed in ref form. It comes with a 3 year warranty for a reason, it's not going to spontaneously combust like people seem to hint at when they say 'blower'. The logic here doesn't seem to be obvious to most people, I'm not sure why.

I've not posted to critique or condemn this card, this is a deals site, and if you spend marginally more (10% of cumulative PC build) to get a 30% boost in performance
static.techspot.com/art…png

17 game average, 5700 is 32% faster.

I build a lot of PCs, you won't get a performance jump like that so cheap often. That's my 2 cents, not hating on the card, not saying it's a stupid buy (maybe you have a rig setup and just want a new card, very budget constained). But for anyone building a new PC and popping £600+ on the table, not getting navi right now would be mad.

Also Lol@2070 super comment. That's equivalent to spending £200 more (around 33-40%) more for 15% performance, to give an idea of normal gains in PC perf.
Edited by: "zeb.mattey" 30th Oct
But we're not here to talk about a total PC build where £100 more is just 10% extra. You're asking people to pay an extra 50% more to go from the 1660 super to the RX5700. Flubit discounted stuff don't count on here because it isn't available to everyone without being a member so we are still talking over £310 for an AIB to give an equivalent comparison.

Yeah, I was far more wordy, but it's not just 10% extra, that's just some fancy words to hide the fact we're taking a big step up in price for a small increase in performance. The 1660 is at a *very* good price/performance ratio for 1080p gaming.

Why do you feel the urge to pull numbers out of thin air (15%?) 21 game summary here 24% boost for '10% cummulative increase' in your full build, if you are going to go with that silly concept.

The 1660 is 80 quid cheaper and here's the average FPS on a ton of games.



The only point, at this FPS, is aiming for 144 at 1080p, which the 5700 doesn't quite hit either, or 1440p, which the 5700 definitely comes up short at.

-21% difference between the 1660ti (which is close to the super) and 26% difference between the 2 references.




And if you want to compare AIBs, NVIDIA just gains more ground.

The 5700 doesn't OC very well, but you can risk flashing the bios to the 5700 xt, but you void that warranty you talked about.

The 5700 is a write-off for us Linux users as AMD still haven't sorted out their driver situation. The GTX 1660 on the other hand would be a nice step up from my GTX 970.

Bear in mind the ti and the super are different products though. Now that the super has been released, the ti is kind of pointless as it is far too expensive. If your budget is closer to £200 then you cannot beat the 1660super for performance.

I was pretty set on the 1660. I've never really looked into a getting a Radeon, either way I'll be waiting to see what pops up on Black Friday. Thanks for the advice guys.
Hey guys. I'm on the lookout for a new card that can run games well at 1440p. Budget of around £500 but don't want to go much higher than that if possible. Wondering if I should hold off until Black Friday which is less than a month away.

1440p there are two big players, Rx 5700 XT Pulse (you can grab it for around £400)
2070 Super £475-£500

Performance is within a hair's breadth,

static.techspot.com/art…png


The Super has gotten faster in Forza since then, but the XT has gotten faster in almost every other game with the Pulse launch and better drivers. I'd say save £75 and get a Pulse, you could use that £75 to upgrade another part of your PC and get a meaningful gain, e.g. CPU.


But if you see the 2070 Super at a nice price, £430 or so, it's worth bagging. Both will smoke any game at 1440p, with the exception of Metro Exodus, whcih they'll sit at a cool 60fps.
