If you need Nvidia for something (gsync, CUDA, Physx, or a specific game), then this. Also if you have a budget PSU, as while the power draw isn't that different on average, Vega has power draw spikes which are significantly higher and will stress your PSU more. I came from an overclocked Vega 56 to this (sold for profit to a miner), and honestly it's slightly slower generally, except for GTA V, AC Origins, and other Nvidia favouring games. I'm moving back to AMD because of Freesync, currently deciding between the black Friday deals or waiting for 7nm next year. That £299 Vega56 is unbeatable value.
Unless you need G-sync you'd be insane to buy this over the Vega 56/64 + games bundles today.
Great card for great price. I'm a Zotac user and can't complain..super silent.
Thanks for correcting :) So, this or the Vega 64 for £20 more....
That review is the Amp! Extreme model. This OP is for the Amp! model. I have the one in the OP - it has 100mm fans and is genuinely almost silent up to around 50-60% fan speed, and quiet enough for regular gaming with speakers (not headphones) all the way up to about 78%. I try and keep the fans below 80% and I'm never concerned about the fan noise.
