Fantastic timing as it's starting to get colder in the evenings now.

Haha true story, sometimes I use my PC to warm up my room.

i would personally spend £20-£30 more and get a GTX1080 but this is a good option for AMD fans.

Remember when the CPU side of AMD was the faltering department? Seems like they even gave up on Vega themselves...

I really do think that they need to get off the HBM2 horse, it's just not working out..

AMD keep telling us how much faster it is than GDDR (backed up with facts), but then still give us a slower card that uses more power?

Don't get me wrong, massive AMD fanboy here. Just been disappointed with their GPU's for ages.

Thing is their GPUs are efficient... at a lower clock speed. I'll go find the article but there's a power saving mode that knocks something like 100W off the power draw while only dropping performance by 5-10% as it lowers the clocks by about the same amount. That means the push to make vega compete with the 1080 and 1080 Ti actually made it a less attractive card since it threw the power consumption out of whack.

Ah, here it is

In other news, a ford focus with a 1000hp engine does not a ferrari make.

Just in time for winter.

Their last decent GPUs were the 4850/70 and 4670 cards

I picked up a new OEM Dell 1080 from an Ebay seller for £400. When it came it was an unbranded MSI Aero.

They often have them available and also PNY made OEM ones

Not if you undervolt it. My one has a 10% OC and only pulls ~ 200 watts

Got the Vega 56 Last week for £389 all got sold within minutes. This is a good price but I think Vega 56 is better Value.

I agree, especially if you are comfortable flashing the bios to Vega 64 air. You'll be able to get pretty close to the performance of a V64, and that's before some undervolting+overclocking - just watch for the temps and increase fan speed (bear in mind your tolerance to noise levels too).

I Undervolted mine and increased the power limit to 50 Which gave me a good Boost in performance. Agree the fan is a bit loud but i dont mind as mainly use headphones. But if anyone can wait for Vega 56 to drop in prices again its a better deal. I got mine from overclockersuk and when they get these in stock at retail prices they always sell out in minutes

Same.here. the reason I'm not getting one is the power draw. If your settings are achievable... I'm certainly interested.

You can successfully undervolt most CPUs and GPUs and get significant improvements in efficiency.

Amazing competitive GPU whose value shines when used with a high resolution freesync panel. Overall its £100's cheaper as 4k freesync screens are often posted on here for around £200

It uses a lot more power because it has a whopping die size compared to the GTX1080, not really because of the memory. GTX1080 is 314mm squared, RX 64 is 486mm squared.

AMD can't afford to design and build separate parts for professional compute use and consumer graphics like Nvidia do. So they just build one big design aimed more at the compute market and pass it off as a high end consumer GPU, with all the compromises that brings for your average desktop gamer. Poorer efficiency, more power, more heat.

HBM2 falls more on the cost side. GDDR6 is arriving to compete next year for new cards, Nvidia will likely back it. Nvidia control the market, so unless they back HBM it's price will take forever to drop

Once HDMI 2.1 hits Freesync and Gsync will probably be as good as dead anyway. The standard requires variable refresh rates. It'll be difficult for GPU board manufacturers to ignore!

This card runs about as hot as the votes lol

Erm, not true at all. AMD have competed very well on price to performance until the last few generations. Examples 5870, 7970, 2xx series. In my opinion since they stalled and started refreshing the 2xx series as 3xx they have tripped up. Fury was not competitive and the 480 was decent but ruined by miners.

Pretty much spot on.

The 290/290x was their last good card.

The 480 marked a weird time for AMD as well, being the only real card available from that generation for so long, and being there was no top of the line card for ages... It really lost them at lot of 'mind share' as some would call it... I like to think of it as a time where you had no real medium to high end GFX card choice, which just annoyed me.

It'll be interesting when the 3rd party boards finally come out (next week I believe). It's the power draw that is killing these cards, benchmarks on the very recent games seem to put this on a par, or ahead of the 1080 (stock) and the 56 above the 1070. I wonder if with better cooling solutions they can do something to get better performance without increasing the power draw

Everyone will hate this comment, but there have been a few miners that started using them. Great performance, but apparently the heat and noise is INSANE!

Yep I stayed with my 290 until very recently. With current GPU prices I didn't think I would be moving on from it any time soon. Luckily I found a 980Ti second hand for £200 so it was hard to say no to that Still plan on using the 290 in a second PC once I scrounge the parts together, very capable card even now.

aaand it's gone
good thing i 'pre ordered' one

I've got mine on 64 bios

Hbm 1100. @ 960mv

Power target fully to right

P5 1050mv (or is it p6 & p7 ) not near comp at mo.)
P6 1100mv
+2.5% on the slider for core clock

Fan target 3600rpm

All else as is

This gets me 1690mhz at 74 deg. under load

In games the fan only ramps up in demanding parts but is not overbearing .

Obviously not all will do this settings some may do better .

A good starting point is setting hbm at 1000mv and 900 core and work up until you get artifacts or crashes in firestrike

On core just knock 50 mv off both p states each run until unstable . Slide power target to full . Then just add .5% core each run again until unstable . Set aside a couple of hours to lock it in but it's well worth it . Faster boost clock than standard Vega 64 and much faster hbm
