Prices on AMD GPUs normalized
Shmerl commented on 24 June 2018 at 3:04 pm UTC

If anyone is interested, it looks like prices on AMD GPUs have dropped recently to normal levels (for instance on AMD Vega). I suppose cryptocurrency mining craze is over, so now is a good time to upgrade your card if you need.

Not here sadly. Vega 56 is 600€ + and Vega 64 is same price as GTX 1080 Ti, 725-850€

Vega 56 isn't really a upgrade for me either though. Waiting for next gen

I could get a PowerColor Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil for 609 €, initial price was 559 €.

Not in desperate need for an upgrade but i would not be very sad if I could ditch my GTX 770.
Next gen is supposed to drop mid 2019 and high end sometime later ?

Shmerl commented on 16 July 2018 at 5:33 am UTC

It's not very clear, but supposedly 2019, yes.

So what do you say ? That bios feature seems kind of neat, the card would fit my case if I remove the unneeded HDD carriage. Price seems OK.

Really tempted.

its a massive upgrade from GTX 770 for you, so if you are fine for paying that money, go for it. Make sure you have decent enough PSU though as this sucker will need some wattage.


edit: just noticed your pc specs, most likely your xeon will be bottleneck in many games though and you wont even use this GPU to its max unless you play higher than 1080p

Shmerl commented on 16 July 2018 at 3:36 pm UTC

Yeah, Vega 64 is quite power hungry. I found that Vega 56 is enough for my needs so far.

Yup, going with a xeon was a fail in the past. I'm planing a complete AMD rebuild though. This might be just the first piece.

Absurdly the powercolor Vega 56 costs 50 € more than the Vega 64.

I got Sapphire Pulse Vega 56. Good cooling, but it is still more expensive than it should be.

That one goes for 575 € currently, first listed price was 593,80 € and max was at 908,00 €
