My first ever deal post so be gentle, A deal I missed out on 2 months ago is back! £248.99 for this card. Don't know if this will last long as the new AMD 5700 card prices will be announced on Sunday.

All the Vegas are EOL now so grab them while you can.
Great card, and most if not all of these should come with Samsung RAM which allows you to flash the Vega 64 BIOS onto it for a free speed bump!
i know i posted this but do you think its a good deal or wait for the new 5700 cards ? will this card last for years to come.
Great value cards at the moment. Close to 1080 performance.

Wait for Sunday when they go on sale and all the reviews come out, then decide
problem is it might not be this cheap again ? i have been hearing that the 5700 will be about £350

Could always buy it as you have 14 day no questions return for a distance sold item. If the 5700 series is better for the money then return the Vega

Hot!
Was £205 the other week from ebuyer with the 20% code. I reckon they'll do another on prime day
was that a blower card ? this is a sapphire card with a different cooler

That was a blower card. This card dropped to around 230 with 20% while the stock briefly lasted, I vaguely remember.

Please dont compare this to a blower card. It was cheap for a reason and no wonder you hardly ever see blower cards these days.

Agreed. Although, it does beg the question: is a blower card a better buy when you can save 50+ quid? (if one was still available at that price)
No I wont. Its just too much noise and hassle. This card will be quieter and more overclockable as well, rather than the blower one which will have to underclocked and undervolted compared to this.

The Radeon RX 5700 graphics card -- $349 that would prob be £350 here in the UK and then that would be for the blower type version, When third parties start selling them like sapphire you could add another £50 for that so you talking maybe £400 or maybe £350 for a RX5700 graphics card thats still £100 to £150 over this card.

is that worth it ? will you see about £100 to £150 worth more performace ?
Edited by: "meridiusuk" 6th Jul
Even with navi on the corner, for £250 or less vega 56 is still the best pick for overall performance. Simply clock it to 1650 core / 900 memory with an undervolt and you get vega 64 performance (sometimes better) with significantly less heat and power draw.

So saying that then, what would be a good price for a Sapphire 57000XT to make it worth it over the this? If it was £250 it would be obvious to go for the XT so lets say £300, would that be worth it?

Where is the limit thats to far?

The reviews will be out in a couple days, just wait for those before speculating on prices.

The 1660ti at around 230 is viable too, I'd personally look for it to be at 200. They are in the same neighborhood for performance. If you could find a 2060 for 250 that'd be the one to jump at. The NVIDIA super cards should push the 2060 regular cards down.

As for Vega, it's really hard to recommend buying a card 1 day before the next model is released.

to me that tells me the vega 56 is not a bad card at all and also the new cards are going to be alot more cash than these and my budget is £250 max anyway no way i am pulling out £350 on a card as i have other parts to buy to build as i am waiting on the new amd cpus to come out before i strat on that.

psu is next on the list

Great card, mine came with samsung hbm2. Undervolted and overclocked it, now it pretty much matches a 1080 and beats 2060 in some benchies.

is it quiet ? thats the only fear i have with this as i have a AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series with 1gb ram lol

just noticed the new cards are going to be called RX 5700 and my 10 year old card is a HD 5700 lol
Mines very quiet, I have great cooling so it rarely goes above 63c overclocked. Most of the time the fan is 0% so it is silent, AMD drivers have a silent fan technology where the fan won't even spin up to 50c roughly.

Nate, please tell me, what's wrong with you ? You just can't resist trolling AMD threads. You have been told and shown numerous times that your alleged hardware 'expertise' is worthless, just stick to Nvidia threads, no one need you here.

This is one of the best versions of vega offered almost at half of the original price that offers unbeatable value at this price point.

I actually asked what is wrong with nate1492 as i just do not get his attachment to Nvidia's product and persistent trolling AMD threads, he must be benefitting from doing so. Every post of Nate seems focused on discouraging people from buying AMD gpus.
Edited by: "7777777" 6th Jul
Beware, this card(drivers?) tends to crash - you'll find lots of people reporting their screen locking up if you Google. I was using this card to drive two 4K displays - one display port, one HDMI 2 - crashed a few times a week requiring a reboot. Eventually I returned this card(Vega 56 Pulse) for a refund.

How would he benefit? Maybe it's your fanboyism to the AMD brand to attribute these feelings towards Nate.

You can't ignore the dominant manufacturer is Nvidia with AMD way behind at less than 15%.

This usually happens if you have had an Nvidia card installed and replace with AMD and don’t fully clean drivers and software.

I don't know how he would benefit, maybe he is a member of nvidia focus ? who knows? I don't get why he would stick his nose in every amd gpu thread in attempt to baselessly spoil the deal otherwise?

I am not an AMD fanboy, have had numerous nvidia and amd cards, always going for the best value and always stick to my ~ £200 budget. I do prefer the reds over the greens recently as i perceive nvidia exploiting its market position. I don't like their anti competitive activities and most importantly, i don't like their pricing.

I also don't ignore nvidia dominance even though I sometimes don't understand the drive - people choosing gtx 1050ti over rx 570 is the first, hard to get thing that puzzles me...but that's not my 💰 so do as you wish.Common sense certainly doesn't prevail once someone is going for the gtx

Old drivers were fully cleaned, ran OK on a single display, crashed with multiple displays - many people have had the issue with the card locking up and there is no obvious solution apart from possibly playing with driver versions.

did you speak to retailer about this issue? checked pc forums? The problem could occur for a number of reasons - bad cable, bad settings, issues powith integrated graphics, attached adapters, damaged socket/ connector, outdated bios, software/driver issue or just faulty card.

I had a quick glance on google , things like this happen and the problem doesn't seem obviously common with this particular model.

It's not worth holding a reasonable conversation with him, thanks for trying though.

Nothing I said was crazy, absurd, or baseless, yet I get accused of being a shill because I said to wait for the newest launch in 1 day.

The launch is out, and it's a disaster though, stock cards are hitting 92 under load with 110c hot spots. I honestly just wish AMD could make a good card that competes, it would make purchasing way way better.

Vega 56 isn't bad at this price, absolutely. There are quite a few 200-250 options on both sides.

My point was the launch of the latest cards should drive the price of the previous cards down on both sides. We already see the XT version dropped $50 before it launched, which means the price ranges should really pinch the previous card ranges down.
This deal is back on as of the 8/7/19 Be quick before there gone it is £10 more that posted but it’s been the 2nd best so far
