Is this card any good? Better than my gtx960 ?

Similar to a 970 s performance. Do u have a g sync or free sync monitor?

It's a bit better, but I personally wouldn't upgrade from a 960 to this, the jump isn't big enough imo.

Go gtx 1070. You'll love it. I prefer nvidia too
This slightly outperforms a GTX 1060 in mining, and massively in video compositing, but the GTX 1060 seems to bury this in the gaming department.

I just got one of these for £5 more, dual fans and Samsung memory

amazon.co.uk/Gig…MMK

I wanted 2 of them but Amazon wouldn't let me have more than one so ordered the AORUS version too, it looks almost exactly the same but with a little more copper on the rear heatsink.

Well it's a tier lower, it's more comparable to a GTX 1050, the RX 580's compete with the GTX 1060 for gaming performance.
Good price. Heat added

It's weird though, because some of the specs on this beat the specs on the 1060. TDP is higher here too... just isn't an attractive price for the card given the 1060 has recently been selling for £218.

About 65 degrees. Less if under volted
If mining why would you pick 3 of these over 1 vega? Presumably the hashrate will be about the same but with worse power consumption?

I guess depends on what you are mining? Take ethereum for example, a Vega 64 does about 30 to 32 out the box? THis will do 24 out the box. I cant see a vega card doing what 3 cardsa can do, unless I am missing something?

Ah that makes sense (was just asking), I was going by cryptonight (monero) but actually 3 of these beat a vega at that too now I've checked.. 1 vega=1850hs, 1 570=700hs

I'm even more tempted by these now! Cheers

It depends on the quantity of your cards. If you just want to build one rig with an average 6 cards let's say you'd probably want to put 6 Vegas in there for maximum hash rate instead of 570s. Same goes for 1060 rigs, as long as you cram 13 or so into one board they are going to be cheaper and faster than a 1070 rig. Unless you cram 13 1070's in there because money is not a problem...

Not with one per customer you won't! Though I get you were probably joking, these cards aren't that great at expelling heat as they're pretty compact and the small single fan can't move a lot of air.

The Vega cards are incredibly unstable I've found, whereas no real issues with RX cards - they also use a lot of power (Vega that is). I wasn't aware til recently that Vega isn't much more than an overclocked and tweaked Fiji core with HBM2.

I had considered that but I don’t want to jeopardise my account! I’ll wait til they go on that price naturally, it’s not a massive discount anyway vs other places.
Why is a single fan 570 good deal for £200?? Can someone explain that to me? One year ago you had MSI RX 480s 8GB for about the same price or less. And you have 1060 3GB for less. I don`t get it what is worng with the world...

The Rx 570 is approx 45% better then the GTX960. If you can afford an extra £170 more, get the GTX 1070 as you'll get around 140% better performance instead.

Or, get a 1060 3GB (if you only do 1080p gaming) as that is cheaper then the 570 and is approx 50-60% better then the 960 you have.

Guys, if buying from Amazon then make sure that you check the card thoroughly when you receive it. I ordered the MSI GTX 1080 a couple of weeks ago after seeing the deal on this website. I have just discovered that the brand new MSI GTX 1080 they sold me is actually a returned GTX 1050 with a 1080 sticker on it & in a 1080 box. I actually queried whether the item was brand new when it arrived in a damaged box & Amazon assured me that it was. I have since been baffled as to why the card is listed as a 1050 in device manager. Tried everything. The guys over on the MSI forums and Nvidia GeForce forums helped me identify it as a 1050! I can provide links to pictures and the forum pages if anyone is interested. I am going to contact Amazon tomorrow. Appalled.
Is 4GB enough for mining now and in the future ??

This has happened for years mainly in Amazon warehouse deals. Someone bought a returned 970 and it turned out someone had bought one, put their old GPU in it, then returned it back to Amazon.

It seems Amazon do not check which GPU is actually back inside the box.

If you only do 1080p gaming, get the 1060 3GB - Amazon sell them for around £170-180. It'll play virtually anything on max 1080p 60fps (as long as your CPU is also half-decent and 8GB of RAM or more).

If you ever want to dabble into 1440p or more, save up for the 6GB version or a 1070.

Yeah I had heard that someone once got a projector & the bulb had been swapped for another. But I thought that if a customer returned an item, Amazon sold it as 'used- like new' via Amazon warehouse. This graphics card was supposed to be brand new & sold by Amazon, not Amazon warehouse. Does this mean that Amazon are selling customer returns as brand new items hoping we won't notice?

That's no surprise when Amazon's customer service is 'really good', cuts both ways and I'm sure while the honest of us are using returns when needed, the dishonest are buying things, swapping them and sending it back - but I thought it would end up in Amazon Warehouse... I guess maybe they eyeball it and if it 'looks new, it's probably new'. I still use Amazon Warehouse as if I find something damaged but working ok, they'll usually give you a 30-40% refund to keep it but on the flipside I've had motherboards with bent CPU socket pins, graphics cards DOA and modular PSUs with all the useful cables missing (e.g. Corsair RM850x with no PCI-e cables...).

Because you can't get much else for the same price and it's actually a good, compact, well-made card. That's like saying before the floods in Thailand, hard disks were cheaper - but there is fixed supply and strong demand so economics tells you the prices will rise til people stop buying them. RX 500 series seems to run cooler and faster when you apply the obvious undervolts and the extra 1GB of RAM will help in cases vs. the GTX 1060.

It's fine for now, til Ethereum goes PoS but if you're only just getting into mining, it may not be worth your while - people say why just Ethereum; well, because when ETH goes PoS, people say switch to another coin but what do you think the thousands of miners with many GPUs will also do when that happens? It's only good if you want to potentially partially offset the cost of a card you're mostly buying for gaming with a bit of idle time for mining.

Buy RX 570/580 if you can get them, good performance, low cost and quite efficient - you can run 6 with a quality 1000W PSU. Just don't expect ROI too soon! Also don't buy the ITX version as they don't have an 'overhang' at the back which makes them very hard to fit into a mining rig case as most cases rely on bolting the card in at the front and the back just 'resting' on a shelf. Occasionally you find rigs where the PCIe risers are mounted, then it's ok. I've been building these for people for a while now and that's what I've learned - you have a good board there too, I learned from experience never to use Z170 boards...

I’ve already worked out that it’s cheaper to buy six 480s as they’re only 1mh/s less out of the box so I’m thinking of going with that. My friend has a 1060 powered setup, 6GB cards and he turns out £600 a month with 6 cards.

Where are you getting RX 480s from - they've been out of stock for ages? Anyway, they are basically the same thing as the 580 just an older version, but same core silicon so it'll be close and most people don't run these stock anyway.

You won't make £600 per month from a single 6 card rig with those cards, especially after electricity. I would ask to see his exact setup and his wallet. Not trying to put you off but don't expect to get anything like that. I think £200-300 is achievable if you set it up properly. Plug it into one of many calculators and see for yourself.

Dual mining with his setup he earns 0.6ETH, then whatever the other coin is. 0.6ETH is a fine target to set myself, and most calculators for 180mh/s seem to be pushing out 700$ before electricity costs. Bearing in mind we pay a fixed unlimited tariff here for electricity in our place already, so electricity usage isn’t a cost factor for me when using the calculator

When you are referring to the 570 and 480 do you mean the 4 or 8gb cards?
