This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Good deal. Better than any AMD blower variant and cheaper than the others. This one uses 90mm fans and one less heatpipe than the Red Dragon. Judging by videos it seems to do fine.

This card performance wise slots slightly under the 'Nvidia 2070 GTX Super' for alot less. Minus the RTX.

This also comes with the AMD games offer and Game pass offer via Amazon

RTX is currently still a meme.

There are more RTX-enabled graphics cards than there are RTX-enabled games, not to mention using it utterly tanks performance.

Thanks op bought one
Does this do ray tracing?

It doesnt support RTX, which is the main implementation used currently, but does support DirectX raytracing features (which I don't think is used in any games yet).

So no not really, but maybe in future.

Same price on overclockers and scan if these run out.

The RTX 2060 might as well not have it.
@sarden84 Thoughts on this card?
Or a 2060 Super for the same price?

RTX 2060 super in simple is worse than the standard 5700 not even the XT so get this
I would still give the driver edge to Nvidia. Though from experience ATI/AMD/Nvidia have all been fine for me.

The whole reshade addition by Nvidia at the driver level is excellent after AMD did a great job with Radeon Image Sharpening (run game at lower resolution and use image sharpening for more performance). It enhances the look of many games too.

The raw power overall is what matters most from experience.

Cheers, though it's for a friends build so I'm worried them having the driver/stability issues
Reviewers havent had issues themselves but note that others may do.

If you have a Ryzen CPU make sure your RAM is tested stable. Even XMP settings can be unstable and you may only notice in games.

Oh actually if they're not tech savy I've not had a flawless experience with drivers in terms of a few minor problems. I had a problem at one point with one of the optional driver updates causing a buzzing noise and I tore my hair out to find the cause. Other people have probably had a better experience but mine wasn't great. Also GPU accelerated rendering is favouring Nvidia at the moment. In short if your really concerned go Nvidia but if you think it should be fine with your friend and you want noticeably better performance in most games go AMD. By the way the problem I had wouldn't stop me going AMD again.

Thanks for the input, yeah I personally would go for this but if my friend has issues with it then they'll be at me for tech support, so may possibly go team green for less hassle.

Oddly enough I was playing one of the few titles the other day on my 2080ti, Metro exodus worked wonderfully with Ray tracing set to ultra at 4k, looked smooth, big improvement from when I first tried it.

But many months have pasted since the games release and lots more revisions of the Nvidia drivers have helped a lot, need more titles, I only bought the 2080ti for the 4k frame rates though.... Ray tracing is just a tacked on gimmick at present...

There is no doubting that AMD are really going to put Nvida back under pressure on the price point.

The 5700xt at current prices is good news for gamers and represents excellent value for money.

To Be honest the RTX 2080 Super and the TI are the only cards that can really use ray tracing to its max. The RTX 2060 probably can't handle ray tracing at ultra on higher resolutions.
