Pre-order but decent price considering the current crypto currency inflation on AMD cards. Lord knows when any of us will get it!

Edit:Just realised this is a duplicate to an earlier post in Aug, happy to take this down if the original OP updates the price!

Hey Rich, curious, how long have you had yours on pre-order for now...?

Hey Rich, curious, how long have you had yours on pre-order for now...?


About a month. I haven't really been in a rush for it though. Otherwise I would have just stumped up the ~£300 for an 8gb model already. People seem to think they'll be around soon ish. (i.e a few weeks). Serveral price drops and stock updates on Amazon today though.
Crypto bubble has temporarily burst. I'd keep an eye on prices, both new and on ebay.

A lot of GPUs come with very easily replaceable fans these days, which is the main thing that will get knackered by mining 24/7, so a second hand mining card isn't necessarily a bad buy, if the price is right.

Might see a real race to the bottom soon.

Ha I hope mate. Maybe one consequence of stuff like solar panels is the spare power generated (if not stored in an energy storage battery) is miners pretty much mining for free? Either way... Common GPU bubble burst!!
I read the questions and answer on the product page and someone confirmed with Amazon that they were delivering on 19/10/2017!

would you really want to buy a used gpu that has been used for mining? i know i wouldnt, but ppl will, which should have a knock on for new prices
I ordered this on the 27th of August. It still says they have no estimate for delivery time but worth the wait imo since it's at least as good as a 1060 6GB for about £80 less. Worth noting that if the price drops any time between you order it and it's dispatched, you'll pay the reduced price (ordered mine at £225 and my order went down to £219).
How does this compare to 2 x 290's in crossfire?

You can get 1060 6gb for £240 at moment if you dont want to wait
Will i need an industrial refrigerator/freezer for this and a special room for installation? because dimensions show as 1.25 m x 2.3 m x 40 cm, is this 4 an ibm retro pc? j/k

you will see a little more performance from the 8gb but it wont be all that noticeable to be honest, if you can wait it out i would pre order this card as it is cheaper and you are then saving a few pounds and in the process getting more performance.

Your build overall looks pretty solid for an entry level gaming pc, the only thing i could suggest maybe is to save a little on the ram and maybe see if you can scavenge a hard drive so you can upgrade the CPU to maybe the 1600. This will give you overall a big performance boost over the ryzen 3 but i'm unsure of your pc needs so i cant say for sure if this would be worth it.

this graphics card should be able to handle destiny 2 at 1080p with decent settings, i haven't personally tested it so i cant give you an idea of frame rates but i'm sure someone on the internet will have done testing. Like i said your overall build is pretty solid, if you were more experienced and liked to overclock, i would suggest to go for a ryzen 5 1600 which you can then overclock. As you said though this is your first build and overall will do the sort of stuff you are looking to do, with the AM4 platform it will give you plenty of opportunity to upgrade later on when your budget allows.

And any idea about prices ? Should I hold out a bit more as im in no rush to build? As haven't been able to see any Rx 580 in stock due to the mining craze

personally if you can wait i would pre-order this card and wait it out, for an rx580 i doubt you will get a much better price than this as miners will always keep the price of these cards over the £200 mark. With no new cards being released in the immediate future, i cant see prices of graphics cards changing that much to make waiting for a price drop all that worth it.

Not as well as you might hope. The 290 was rebranded as the 390, and the 480 was rebranded as the 580, so despite AMD's deceptive branding, this is really only one generation up from the 290, and a grade below. An individual 580 will perform roughly equally to a single 290 (but with less power consumption), and on the occasions where crossfire works, your rig wiill perform around 60-80% better than this.

Well why not? The mechanical stress is the main risk, and a lot of cards have literally pop out and replace fans.

Show me any evidence that 24/7 mining cards are at significantly greater risk of electronic failure, in their expected useful lifetime. I'll be surprised if you can.

That said, I wouldn't pay full price for one, but the point is you're really not expecting to have to. If mining is truly over and done, there will be 100000 of these bad boys hitting ebay before Christmas.

If the bubble stays busted, I'll be surprised if you can't pick up a 470 for 75 quid. I mean, that's a steal.

Most people have no clue about crypto, what it means, what it brings, what it gives. You've heard of the revolution, crypto is the revolution x 1,000,000. Market vectors have brought the price down, but it was up again today, let's see what happens when China awakes tomorrow.

Crypto is not mainstream yet, because the software infrastructure is not there. The n00bs and let's face it most people are idiots, the 10% who have a clue and aren't naive will own crypto before the n00bs get anywhere near, any that have touched it so far have got burnt through not protecting their private keys, sending crypto to the wrong deposit address, and buying high and selling low. Idiots who use crypto will get burnt very easily, this is an emerging market and it's not an easy system navigating from FIAT to crypto. Then once the n00bs get on crypto they're instant traders, crazy! Most people aren't traders they will get burnt! This is easy money, easy won easy lost. Highly volatile, invest in what you believe and hold on.

I've had this same offer on pre-order for around 2 months
Not so sure about the market crashing. Prices recovered to 266 dollars . It's peaked around 400 and low of 210 dollars last few days. Dropped to 150 in July. Not sure the bubble is burst yet.

One reason for lower price here is strength of the pound. Pound is nearly 1.36 against dollar now. Wait for prices to feed back into retail.

I still have this on order but managed to snag a 1060 Gigabyte windforce card on a previous deal. Friend might take this card from me. 1060 card is smaller compared to this 29cm card. On the pre order you always get lowest price it went to. So £219 seems very good.

The wait time is not so good but not really shocked.

Yeah with talk of China banning the currency we could see cheap graphics card on Ebay very soon, though it could just be a blip and it might not affect demand for the cards.
I'm new to Radeon as I've always had Nvidia. I own a GTX 760 4GB GDDR5 GPU 1085 Mem 1502 at the moment and am noticing that the recommended requirements for most AAA games have surpassed this level now. £220 is a lot of money for me so is it worth the swap for this card or should I wait out this data mining craze and wait for prices to fall? I'm in no hurry to change.

I don't think the Chinese ban will influence our eBay too much. Why would you sell your mining rig as long as it still makes profit? Yes, right now it's making less than a few months ago but it's still well in the positive.

In other news, these cards are going to dispatched towards the very end of October. Mark my words (Amazon CS supervisor told me)

Because the other crypto currencies are so completely tied to bitcoin in terms of value that they might as well not independently exist. If Bitcoin loses value, as it has, and possibly will continue to do in the near future, then anything you can mine with a GPU will also lose value, probably proportionately more value than BTC.

People will very quickly be making an immediate loss on the cost of their electricity, nevermind being able to recoup the cost of their cards.

The best way to make some money off those cards for most people will be to sell them.

Do you know what happens when you try to sell half a million of the same thing at the exact same time?
I pre-ordered this originally when it was around £240 a week ago but then my back up graphics card died....I couldnt wait for this, so I ordered the zotec 1060 gtx 6gb AMP edition for £260... There is a cheaper 1060 6gb by evga SC(overclocked version) which is £253 but the single fan can get bit noisy at load from the reviews I read.

But this is a great deal if you can get hold of one.
