Looks like Amazon have price matched scan.co.uk. I'm tempted.... But Black Friday is lingering
This is the one I was gonna get but I couldn't pass up the Gaming X 2060 Super for 340.
That's a cracking deal for top range 2060 super!

Doesn't this trade blows with the 2070 super though?

No it's slower. Plus no ray tracing.

It's on par with a regular 2070 (non super)

It’s close enough in performance to a 2070 super in some benchmarks. These Navi cards are way better bang for buck than the rtx cards and if you’re not bothered about RT then don’t bother go AMD
As someone who likes AMD, and wants to support them - if I were to buy a GPU that is - I'd be getting the 2060 super. It's around the same price, about 5% slower according to techpowerup, uses a fair chunk less power, especially if using multimonitor, and has raytracing (fake).

The 5700 XT does not compare to the 2060 super its actually closer to a 2070 super. At this price you are getting way more performance than a 2060 by going with this card.

It is closer to a 2070S, by 3%. Techpowerups most recent review of a 5700XT, the ASRock 5700XT, at 1080p 100%, 2060S founders is (sorry i was a little out) 92%, 2070S founders is 105%. I'd still take the 2060S currently as I said before, runs cooler.

If you can run ray tracing on anything in this range then you aren't playing anything new or have gotten a mystery card from the future.

It's closer to the 2070 super and does trade some blows. It's the better deal. It's also the better investment, the more AMD sells the more they push Nvidia to deliver better cards next gen for less money. It's a win win.
As an addition, if you like Minecraft, some of the raytracing mods work with Nvidia only. Or if you stream, where the Navi H264 encoder isn't great, whereas the Turing one is good. Also as a side note, the KFA2 2060S, which is slightly cheaper is 4% faster than the stock card, so it's already closer to an AIB 5700XT.

There are obvious pros and cons, raw performance the ASRock 5700XT which i mention before, is ~5% better overall than an KFA2 2060S, but the 2060S does have other things going for it, it just depends what you want. The ASRock also has higher clocks than the red dragon, though if it holds them is anyones guess.
With all these cards being pretty close together in terms of performance you're going to be fairly hard pressed to actually notice a significant difference although in actual games you'll normally see around 12%+ higher with the 5700xt vs the 2060s at 1440p when averaging at least a dozen or so titles 2070s is less around 2-4% so unnoticeable, none of these cards can really run ray traced games without sacrificing too much elsewhere. There's no point in having slightly nicer shadows if your framerate takes a 50% hit.

both series have different software advantages, there's radeon chill which is great if you're concerned about power consumption nvidia has a far superior video encoder for streaming, so if one has a software solution for you then that has value go for it.

Also game bundles, I think AMD is still doing their 3 months of pc gamepass whereas last time I checked the nvidia cards came with the new COD from experience it can be a bit of pain to try and sell bundled games but the situation might of changed.

Personally I'd go for the 5700xt as looking back on the past when amd releases a whole new architecture it normally improves more over time then nvidias. Or if this is too much I'd save the £100 and get the vega 56 red dragon model for £275 as that's a fair chunk of change more then just stepping down to a 2060s and there a smaller gap between the vega 56 and 2060s then there is between the 2060s and the 5700xt.

I'm playing Control by Remedy, with ray tracing on, so no its not 'old' and not from the future.... These are facts as I own a 2070 super.

And youve got full implementation on? Because reviews say that'll be running like a rock at sub 60 on a 2070 super. Which is the point, thats a game that Nvidia basically went in and wrote half the render code themselves to get it running and you still need a 2080Ti to get over 60 fps some of the time and not even consistently and frankly sub 60 isn't really playing it. Getting it to run for screenshots doesn't count.
I not interested in arguing with you. I have an RTX 2070 super, so I don't need to read the reviews. I'm enjoying playing 'Control' with ray tracing on and I'm very happy with my frame rates, thank you. My pauper spec DELL ultrawide (3440 x 1440) monitor has a MAX 60hz, so yes 'I'm not really playing it???

Enjoy your day
