I’m a big fan of Vega but I think the RX 5700 (or XT) makes the most sense at this price point now, I’d say V64 needs to be around £250 to be the better choice, even if it is the best NITRO+ cooler.

In the market for a new graphics card, budget up to £300 but hoping for a bit less. I've been looking at this, the Vega 56, the 5700 (non XT) the 1660Ti and the rtx 2060. I really can't make my mind up. I'm being put off the AMD cards because of potential heat and also power supply requirements, but keeping an open mind in case a mega deal comes up

Go for an AIB 5700, they’re better than all of the other cards you said and the non-stock card will deal with the cooler much better than the blower stock card as they run very hot and very loud

Any links you could recommend I'm looking as well lol.
Not worth 300 for a vega 64 anymore, IMO
Yeah I wouldn’t be buying a vega if had over 300 to spend. I hoping to get one this week but hope to be paying a lot less than 310.

same, would prefer to be about £250 but a 2070 at 300 would be considered

You're not going to find a 2070 at £300 yet I don't think. I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a 2060 for 280 but might wait for Friday

oh i know but ever the optimist
just cant bring myself to pay nearly 300 for what is essentially the bottom rung gaming card of the current nvidia range( lets face it the 50 series really aren't a gaming card, they are a desperation card or mod for an office PC :D)

I've spent the last couple of days watching videos and reading reviews. In benchmarks, the 1660Ti is almost equivalent to a 1070 (non ti) and the 2060 is almost equivalent to a 1080 (non ti). Considering the recent and continued prices of those, I don't think £250/280 is too bad... but I get your point. I've got a 1060 at the moment so either would be a step up

yeah I fitted a 1060 6GB for a friend last year but it seemed to struggle with rtx and at over 1080p so i thought, would i want to buy now and chuck away when i moved to 4k/rtx? i think the 1070 is really the minimum for rtx but ignoring that you might as well go 5700.

I haven't even attempted ray tracing on mine. I'm running 1080p ultrawide as my main plus a couple of other monitors for whatever else I have going on - and a Lenovo explorer for VR
Too expensive. Price will be reduced for this older model for sure
Can't believe what I'm reading here.

For £300 you get a blower style RX 5700, or a cheap model RTX 2060.

A Sapphire Nitro Vega 64 is better than both, in games and cooling compared.
£300 for this is more than decent.

I have actually sold my RTX 2070, to get a used Nitro Vega 64, and I get maybe 5% less performance in most games.
This card, this specific model is closer to RTX 2070 than you would think.

In both Destiny 2 and Division 2 I get only 10 fps less on this card, compared to my old RTX 2070, and both cards boosted 100- 144 fps enough to drive my monitor.

Not to mention this Vega is 10C cooler than Zotac 2070, and that card was £450. I did undervolt+overclock and it does not go over 67 in full load, with fans at 60% speed.

HOT!

vega is great n all, but the vega 64 is really not worth it at this price, can get a xfx 5700 dual fan for 300 and yeah you can make the argument that you can overclock the 64 but guess what you can do the same to the 5700 for pretty big gains.

I was originally looking at vega56/64 as their bang for buck is undeniable. What put me off is the power requirements of roughly double the equivalent Nvidia card. I only have a 500w PSU at the moment and it's too low for most of the AMD cards. If a dirt cheap 56 or 64 came up I would consider it. This isn't cheap enough for me personally

I'm just about to press the trigger and go for this Vega 64. RX 5700 at this price range have very poor reviews and issues with heat and noise. Both Msi Mech OC 5700 and XFX 5700 DD have issues. The only other model which is near this price range is PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 Red Dragon at £329. After this we are going north of £350 for XT models. I don't know whether to wait for Cyber Monday or just go for this Nitro + vega 64. The craftsmanship seems great and all the reviews seem to confirm this is the best vega around. I would appreciate any thoughts.
It also looks like RX 5700 Red Dragon has very limited o/c potential.

If this Vega can be pushed further by undervolting + o/c this may tip the equation in its favour

Ryzen 2700X (non-OC) + Sapphire Nitro+ Vega64 + 2933Mhz memory.
Bear in mind, FFXV is a game which is heavily nVidia optimised.
Look where RX5700 is. That card is not worth the money.
I have undervolted my Vega64, now pulling max 230W, overclocked core to 1625Mhz (light OC) and I have temps at max 68C (hotspot) + 58C (core) with fans at 50%.

Not to mention Vega drivers are more mature than 5700 series.

I have finally made the order. After much consideration I realised that I cannot get a decent RX5700 for this price.(I wont even mention Nvidia Most of the cheap models have PCB design problems (lower XFX and Asus models) while Gigabyte and Red Dragon cost around £350 for non-XT version. I was really looking at £400 to get a decent Gigabyte or Sapphire RX5700. I even looked at reviews showing the cards being taking apart and electronics of their PCB. And then I realized... the workmanship and build quality of this Vega nitro+ I will not find in any low to mid range RX5700 or even XT. Even top of the range Asus ROG Strix RX5700XT (£430) had temp problems and was drawing a whooping 230watts!!!

Again many test show undervolted + oc Vega 64 to be on par with rx5700. For 60-70watts extra its not bad at all.
Thanks a lot Kosmonaut for your sound advice. I am glad there are still people in the Tech community who think outside the box and don't fall for the latest consumer marketing tricks.

I'm sure with an undervolt/overclock this surpasses the RTX 2070? Did you not find that to be the case?

With stock settings I assumed you would get the 5% performance difference you mention.

It's not surpassing my old Palit RTX 2070, but it's hard to tell the difference in Destiny 2 and Division 2, maybe 5-10 fps here and there, both cards on 1080p, ultra setting pushing 100+ FPS.
