Assuming the main aim is gaming and you're not chasing clockspeed, then the ti over the x all day long. Maybe we'll see some decent deals but unless the x gets down to within £10-£15 difference it's a tough sell for us casuals imho.

Id also spend a little more for a 1070ti. I got the £270 1070 deal from amazon.com posted here about a month ago so would be hard pressed recommending it at this price point.

Nothing official, just from what I've seen on various forums. Although there is a post by one of OCUK buying managers on their forums that states they'll be doing AMD deals on Thursday..... I don't think these will be amazing deals but I wouldn't be surprised if they lump a load of new games (BF5 maybe) in with the 590's. Plus, there's a small chance 580s will be cheap(er) to clear stock.

Despondent

Do you have a link, by any chance? Thanks!

There's talk that AMD will be doing some deals on 590, and possibly other cards, this Thursday. Edit - Looks like OcUk will be in on this action from 2PM this Thursday. Also doing CPU deals.

Despondent

In my case it’s mostly about not damaging the card by dropping something on it (screw, hard drive, etc) when I’m tinkering in the case. I couldn’t care less about the looks of a card that’s going to be inside a box, but I do care about protection.

HinseyHonsey

So true

chapchap

And because of Amazons atrocious CS and no legal recourse ( due to lack of any sort of Distance selling regulation in the U.K.) too you really are stuck with it for ever and ever and ever. Oh well, you might as well just bury it in the back garden then...

HinseyHonsey

I wasn’t able to cancel my order with Amazon in time! Great now I’m stuck with a crappy card.

Cuddl3s

No my motherboard does not have one as i cant really afford the asus models that do, but I did own a asus sabertooth in the past which looked amazing in my windowed case, as for nvme drives they will soon all have front plates to dissipate the heat, and if i had one I would probably buy a 3rd party mod to put one one to make it look cooler. The end point is this model is the worst looking of the custom 1080s, people that spend this kind of money usually have a windowed cases to showcase their rig in, plus as i`ve said the back plate helps wipe the dust off and adds to the resale value in my view, it is a matter of preference but I would never buy this one, it just looks cheap. Either way it is crazy to even be talking about buying 1080s back plate or not at anywhere near this price now that the 2070 are out at very close to this price.

Mugginz

Thanks for the detailed reply. Your use case totally makes sense. I am leaning towards a good 1080 ti as the main choice but looks like the stock of some highly rated models is running short, and therfore remaining higher priced. My main priority is a quiet card to push frames to my 1440p 144hz monitor, or my 4k tv at 60hz. My current zotac amp extreme 980ti is still doing the job but makes an awful racket under load from certain games, especially at 4k. Even after buying a tool to set the fan profiles on the card (*grumble mumble* stupid gigabyte mobo proprietary fan control software limitations) As you are dabbling with GPGGPU rendering projects would the "deep learning" and "dedicated ray tracing shaders" fancy bells and whistles on the 2080 cards not be more more appealing to you? Interesting into about the memory heat, well within tolerances but concerns about longevity are reasonable. Been watching Gamers Nexus YouTube teardowns of the cards? Still in the fence really but learning more towards the gigabyte Aorus 2080 with super quiet load operation

RoronoaZoro

I am indeed on the hunt for a decent 1080ti. My setup consists of a 4k 32" montior at 60hz, and I'd like the horsepower to ensure I utilise it fully. A 1080ti will be more than enough for the job for games, and possibly even 8k at around 25-30fps if 8k goes mainstream. So some future proofing is there too making the card a good long term investment. I also dabble in some GPGPU coding so I'm interested in playing around with a GPU with some oomf behind it for my projects. If a decent 2080 deal comes out I may consider it, but there's a recent theme of failing 2080s and 2080ti's. A good couple of articles highlight how the GDDR modules are operating at 75C+ at idle. So with these overheating issues the 20 series boards appear unreliable and risky. I'm banking on 1080ti being a wiser, more secure. purchase. Especially given how dropping £600+ on a card seems the norm nowadays :(

Bumble_

It's a solid deal, it's better than a 2070 and on par with a 2080. It's the smart way to go if you want a high end GPU brand new. Most reputable GPU comparison websites such as hardware unboxed and gamers nexus came to the same conclusion. Go look up the reviews.

Oneday77

Wouldn’t count on the warranty. If the invoice reflects any form of additional discount or descriptionthat indicates ex display there will be none.

Mugginz

Good sources, point proven. Agree 100%. Some folks need to read better before making snarky comments. Credit for your detailed and further informative reply. Out of interest. Are you in the market for a 1080 ti, considering 2080 deal of a good one comes up? What's the use case? 1440p 100hz +? 4k?

As a bit of a re-buying amateur, why would we want to buy second hand Graphics Cards when the chances are that their previous owner ran it until the wheels fell off? What's the benefit to foregoing a warranty, are they usually that much cheaper?

I believe amongst other things if you return something instead of repairing it, they give you an unfavourable reduced price on what they think its worth.

I only have a GTX 470 at the moment in a i7 case but don't play much games but would be nice to have something decent enough but not looking for bleeding edge games, but enough to play latest Doom, etc. ( the 470 just about plays the older Wolf games at lower rate with overclocking but I'm aware its tired in spec but I did get the whole i7 case for about £50 as they were ditching desktops at work). Last time I ever bought a gaming card as Im not really a PCer was decades ago was a Radeon 980 pro or something for a 100 or so, not really in my nature to spend 100s on PC cards Is this the one to go for or is likely to be further big price drops over xmas or better cards for same ? Not seeing a lot in the 100-200 range, don't see any point myself spending loads as said, would love a bargain ;)

toonnut

The 2080 and the 1080ti are almost identical in gaming and the 8700k and 9700k are very close the 9700k slightly faster in some games The 2080 has 8gb of vram and the 1080ti has 11gb or vram but for gaming 8gb is enough So yes the more vram the merrier but actually not really needed as 8gb is enough It looks like your going for a higher end graphics card so you'll probably be gaming at 4k and if that's true then the graphics card does most the work on most games. Compared to 1080p or 1440p gaming because the processor gets hit much harder so in theory you'd easily get away with the 8700k you'll see very little gains from the 9700k at 4k.. but if you don't mind spending a little more get the 9700k it's not a huge amount more. Is this upgrade for gaming or productivity?

M0nk3h

Since my comment I decided to opt for a 9700k purely because of the price difference and performance - I'm not going to utilise an i9 but I have the option should I need it in the future. I'm looking £419 for the 8700k or £479 for the 9700k. I'm trying to now weigh up whether it's worth going for the 2080 or simply opt for the 1080ti. Both have similar performance but the VRAM would be beneficial - would it not?

M0nk3h

My only gripe about playing the "Chill game" for now is futureproofing and VR. My overall plan is to build a decent rig and then buy a VR headset within a few months time. If I spend my budget now, it would mean I could relax about buying a GPU down the line. Gaming is 1080p for me, i'm not too fussed by anything over this.

Well you get higher Memory Bandwidth. The 4gb cards ram runs round 1750mhz which you can overclock or fash the cards bio's.

Yeah the 8Gb is faster but in terms of saving £50 it's fine

Really dependent on the game you can see plenty of benchmarks which give better performance on the 8gb variant as opposed to the 4gb

Well, I'm sorry. I opened your link and could have sworn I saw 1050ti. It's going to be a long day (y) You're right, the 570 is roughly 60% faster than a 1050ti, not to mention being cheaper and a few games thrown in with it, that's a great deal.

darynq

You actually looked at the comparison benchmarks???

ST3123

Freezing, this card should be sub £150 by now. The 1050ti was never a great performer compared to the 1060 (even 3GB) and now they are closer than ever on price. Shopping around would see a GTX1060 3GB for similar money and up to 40% faster. Even a used GTX970 would be a better bet and almost certainly a fair bit cheaper. The 1050ti has it's place for upgrading older PCs and all in ones with weak PSUs but you shouldn't overpay for the benefit...

BB93

That's not a better card at all. Only thing making it better is the games bundled with it.

Card is back at £219.99, so I've unexpired it. I'm going to hold off 'til Black Friday, see if it reduces further. Did you select the option for it to be shipped in Amazon packaging? Without it, apparently Amazon ship it in the retail box only. And it looks like the cards aren't shipped in static bags, Sapphire just use "static" foam. Edit - I've added an unboxing video for this card to the original post for reference. It seems that's how this particular card is shipped, ie - no PCIe protector, not in an anti-static bag.

Dan_Lawrance

I got one today and arrived with slightly damaged box . No static bag . No outer box . No cover on pcie slot. Gonna send it back . Discusting really

Retro87

It looks that the lack of anti static bag might be a manufacturer thing, as others had the same problem on Sapphire cards purchased from other stores / different models. Apparantely the foam it comes in is already anti static: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/6asvi6/is_it_normal_for_my_580_nitro_to_not_come_in_with/

robwood1987

BTW, that response from Amazon is totally irrelevant (that's what they told me at first too). What they mean by that is that they've literally stuck the delivery label on the GPU retail box, so you can see exactly what is inside. This wasn't the issue for me. My problem was when I opened the box and the card wasn't in the protective wrapping that should have been there with a new card.

Yep, I'm returning to Amazon. I went for the 1070ti so I could do VR well and also should last a few years.

Barely any performance difference between this and the 1080ti and considering the rtx cards are suffering a high number of failures i'd warn people to steer clear of these cards for the moment. As for the guy telling you these prices won't drop, he is talking garbage. This launch has been a disaster and although the majority of failures are the 2080ti, there is a larger than normal amount of failures of the 2080 being reported as well. Unless you are buying from someone who has a good return policy and the price is around the 599 mark don't listen to guys like the OP at all and touch these cards with a barge pole.

Mugginz

Good find. Seems to be beating of the 1080 Ti FE by a few fps in each of the tests here, bar one or two. Can't vouch for this reviewer as it was just the first hit I found. Also watched without sound, so may have an annoying squeaky voice :)

FireOnAWire

NVidia are out of their minds with RTX pricing. They've gone full Apple. I'm eager to see Steam hardware stats. Cards like these are not going to be mainstream. Not when Pascal offers much better £:performance. Let's hope they don't sell too many and we see a more realistic RRP. I won't hold my breath though. Will hold on to my Strix 1080 Ti for a while longer.

Mining has been dead for 2-3 months. Most miners will have sold cards by now. This is evidenced by prices on new and used cards such as the 1080Ti increasing on price trackers such as bidvoy e.g.1080Ti price increasing at £6-7 per week. Prices on the lower end cards are steady/slight fall of up to £2-3 a week.

MarineRX179

I appreciate your viewpoint and can understand why you feel AMD is hot running base on your experience and situation, but I just want to say that a Polaris with a good (properly attached) cooler and in a case reasonable airflow should not hit above 80C. The RX580 power consumption isn't really that much higher than a GTX970 for gaming, so I suspect that if the RX580 you tried that were noisy and running at 80C+, it is likely more to be a case of issue with the cooling solution used on the card rather than the card itself (may be other people that returned these cards also found them to be running at 80C+ to be unacceptable) running too hot. I mean back in the days when custom coolers provided by manufacturer were not totally mainstream, MSI use to deliver quality VGA cooler such as the Twin FrozR II (full aluminum) on my HD5850. And despite it by no mean an efficient card (by today's standard) and has similar if not higher power consumption than the RX580, it managed to maintain the temp at around 75C with the fan still very quiet. Nowadays it has become common-placed that all manufacturers will have custom coolers for their cards, but there's a issue that there are many cooler may look the part, but cooling isn't really quite up to par with what one would expect from a custom cooler. To put things into prospective...I am now using a Vega64 card, with power consumption in the region of 300W+/-, however the particular model I got is a Sapphire Nitro+ with a beast of a cooler with 3 fans on a thick heatsink, and it can keep the GPU's temp below 70C despite the fans not spinning up to beyond around 1500rpm (good case airflow also helps). So I guess the point I am trying to make is lower power consumption and lower heat of a card certainly would allow even poorer cooler to stay quiet, but ultimately the noise level of a card is also very much dependent on the quality of the cooler and the performance of case cooling as well. I hope this doesn't come across the wrong way, and to clarify I am by no mean trying to claim "I am right you are wrong" or anything like that, I am just hoping by having this conversion/discussion it may (or may not) be beneficial to anyone who want to have good performance but also at the same time with at reasonable quiet noise level when making a purchase. I would in fact encourage everyone to look into reviews of each of the different brand cards to see what that particular card cooling and noise level is like, rather than thinking all cards with the same GPU would be the same hot and noisy running or quiet and cool running. Thumb of rules is pretty much if you are buying Nvidia, buy EVGA; if you are buying AMD, buy Sapphire if you want quality coolers before considering Gigabyte, MSI, Asus etc.

Oneday77

Fully understand what you say. The only thing I still don’t agree of is efficiency. Ok, cost from the wall is a quantifiable thing that we can factor in to total ownership cost. Then choose to discount. The issue for me is the heat. It isn’t something we over look at all. Heat has to be dealt with. Yes the cars will happily sit in their 80s all day long. The problem is at what cost to noise, heat soaking the case, more fans to keep the whole system cooler. There are solutions to heat but they lead to more cost or compromises. In the last year I’ve played around with 8GB RX480 & 2 x 580. Then various GTX 1060s, 1070s, 1070Ti and 3 different 1080s. I took advantage of the high demand in cards, buying warehouse models and selling after a few days/weeks to get my money back. There are bad models in all ranges. Zotac on the 1060 and 1080 put me right off them. Evga came out very well built and just performed. I’ve ended up keeping an EVGA 1070 for a PC downstairs and an MSI AIO 1080 for my main. I didn’t need the 1070 performance, in the kids PC but I could bring myself to use the 580s. Too noisy and I just didn’t get them. I’ll stress both PCs are running Ryzen, 1700 or 2600. So I’m not an AMD hater. Let me add, I voted hot on this deal, great price. This debate started from my comment about AMD running hot, a true statement.

MarineRX179

Whilst I agree with you that it would be good for the consumer that if AMD can pull a "Ryzen" in the GPU space, I would also like to point out that efficiency wise the AMD Polaris cards are more or less on par with Nvidia Maxwell cards such as the GTX970/980. Sure efficiency wise they are not good as Nvidia's current Pascal cards, but they are hardly power hungry hot running monsters. Also part or the reasons why the 1060 has lower power consumption is because Nvidia grimed the memory bus on the card with it only having a 192-bit bus, and as a result while for the 1060 6GB performance it more or less trade blows with the RX580 at 1080p, but fall behind in performance once good amount of AA is applied or if people ran games at 1440p instead of 1080p. Also, heat should be the least of people's worry, when Nvidia card has a history of performance in new games that are released after the product shelf life-cycle with the cards not performing nearly to the same level as in games that are released before or during their shelf life-cycle. Couple of years ago I was at a point which I could choose between buying a GTX780 and a R9 290x for similar, and I purchased the latter and dodged a huge bullet...or should I say cannon ball, with Nvidia washed their hands clean not optimising driver performance their older cards in new games. So in a sense Nvidia efficiency mainly come from the radical different in design between each gen's GPU architecture, but it costed the gamers with lacking long term ongoing driver support for older products' performance in new games; AMD doesn't have the same level of funds in research in development, so for their GPUs for each gen still have similar fundamentals in the architecture- which it means while it wouldn't have the same leap in improvement in efficiency between each new gen, it does have the benefit of their multiple gens of their products across the board enjoying driver performance support and optimisation even in new games launch 2-3 years after the product stop being sold on the shelf. I guess at the end of the day, it depending or the spending pattern of the gamers- if they are upgrading every gen/2 years anyway, or must have the absolute faster card then it's perfectly fine to go for Nvidia; if they are gamers that want to get a graphic card that will handle games (including new ones) for 4 years/upgrade every 2 gens rather than every gen (true bang for bucks), then AMD would be a better option (even if they were more power hungry than Nvidia's alternative).

While you’re right. AMD really need to do a Ryzen on their GPU line. They are incredibly inefficient and lack in performance. I may not chase the best performance, I do want value for money and efficiency. Heat generation, isn’t efficient.

Heat for AMD and for not ebuyer.

MartyMcNugget

I ordered it at £275 and it wouldn't ship for months and months. They then dropped the price, I held on, never cancelled and amazingly it shipped at that. Think it was a technical error.

rev6

No it was directly from Amazon. They had it at around £120 at some point, pre-order, then it dropped to £102. Some were cancelled but not all :)

visibleman

How did you manage to get it for that? Assume it was a third-party seller?

MartyMcNugget

When you said that, it rang a bell. Turns out I was wrong... High five fellow deal bro!! (y) :D

That is a normal 1920X1080(16:9) and the most common resolution on Steam,and it is an average of loads of games. FHD is 1080p and the resolution found on sub £100 monitors: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/what-is-fhd-full-hd,5741.html The RX570 is 50% faster than a GTX1050TI. That is the difference between 40FPS and 60FPS or 20FPS and 30FPS. The GTX960 4GB was barely slower than a GTX1050 TI and was released much earlier for a similar price: https://www.computerbase.de/2016-10/geforce-gtx-1050-ti-test/3/#abschnitt_benchmarks_in_1920__1080 Most reviews used the reference GTX960 2GB which was soon replaced by aftermarket 4GB GTX960 cards. The GTX1050TI is more like 2015 level performance for £150. Its not a card I would suggest in 2018 for anywhere near £150. Even a GTX1060 3GB at £200 is much better value. A secondhand "mini" GTX960 4GB from CEX is better value for under £100. Even with a £40 PSU,the RX570 wins in FPS/£,and even a GTX1050TI card on a generic PSU like a CiT will cause it to blow eventually. Many of these very cheap generic PSUs lack proper protections unless made by a known company like FSP,CWT or Delta and don't have a modern 12V bias in the design. I would not even run a GTX1050TI off them. Also a number of generic desktops won't actually supply 75W from the PCI-E slot due to not being fully wired up electrically on the PCI-E slot,so won't run GTX1050/GTX1050TI cards,so will only really run a GT1030. Hexus and most review websites use overclocked CPUs,enthusiast grade motherboards,32GB RAM and huge PSUs,all of which bumps up power consumption. So the figure in that review is actually not going to be similar to someone with a cheaper board,and a stock clocked CPU. I have one of those GTX960 4GB cards in another computer,and even when the former is overclocked further,the RX570/RX580 and GTX1060 cards my friends have is noticeably faster (I have a GTX1080 running off a sub 500W PSU fine in a smallish system and Corsair specs 400W PSUs for the GTX1080 in their own systems). It also is noticeably faster than the GTX1050TI 4GB my mate has in a prebuilt Lenovo,so much so they actually wished they had gotten the RX570 4GB/8GB or GTX1060 3GB/6GB in the first place. Its a false economy,especially since most gamers keep their cards for a while,so all you are doing is forcing an earlier upgrade which will cost more. Now,the RX570 in this deal(or any of the RX570 or RX580 cards on offer) have Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Star Control: Origins, and Strange Brigade included,and a system should be able handle a 200W to 220W internal load fine. A modern good quality 400W to 450W PSU should easily do that(PC World has the Corsair CX450 for £40). Even the new Turing cards have bumped up TDPs and power consumption in line with performance,so ultimately you are locking yourself into spending beyond the odds.

I dont see a contradiction. It depends what you are measuring. your charts show a 4gb model with a widescreen resolution rather than a fhd with standard laptop FHD resolution. The chart seems consistent with what I wrote - it is just showing different things. it varies anything from 20% to 100% depending on what you are measuring. The performance increase becomes more significant as you move away from standard FHD resolution. Most pre configured desktops will have a generic power supply which wont be sufficient for the card. They computer may run initially with it but are likely to behave like mine and eventually blow.
