    Honestly that XFX THICC2 looks awesome.. don't know if it'll fit in the Define Mini, but fingers crossed. I don't think I'll fit a massive three fan version again. Can't fit a Vega 64 Nitro in the Define Mini, so maybe if it's smaller?

    Posted about this a bit back, its unreal but they don't advertise it which is a shame because i didn't even know you had to turn it on as its off by default. The tech kills nvidia's dlss from what i've seen so far and way less of a hit.

    Even the new MSI card is looking more refined! I find it highly amusing that nvidias cards are using a heap of ai and ML stuff which a very refined high end and there cards are all designed to look like "gamer" cards but amd who created Navi for games has the refined looking cards

    But everyone knows fast cards have to look like fast cars and quiet cards have to look like stealth bombers!? It's physics!

    I had a Vega 56 Nitro that wouldn't fit in my case, I switched it for an RX580 Nitro. 2 fans instead of 3. Given that the 5700/XT burns less power than a Vega, I would expect that a Nitro version would possibly also be 2 fans. I'm hoping so anyway...

    If people can be willing to pay through the nose for an RTX card, I can choose to pay too much for my card of choice :lol: and its not like we aren't paying the same premium for blower cards anyway?

    Interesting that they haven't really changed the strix aesthetic, looks almost identical to my 1080

    Why mess with something that works?
    Asus Strix, MSI Frozr, Sapphire Nitro+ all have signature "look" and performance that goes with it that's recognised by gamers who care about such things (not to mention making life easier for inventory/supplier management :lol:).

    i hope these AiB cards dont go over the $750 AUD mark. I wonder what XFX will be priced like on PCCG.
