    Yeah particularly since I am so used to 144hz at over 144 fps I just could not deal with that in a shooter...

    How are they not garbage when they perform worse for similar price points and consume a lot more power ?? Please think about it before you randomly post lol. heck Vega 64 was even more expensive that 1080..
    You also cant get good fps if you dont have a good card. I'd rather play on a console if I just wanted to game on the cheapest card.. Bought a ps4 pro for $330 during amazon boxing day sale...costs less than decent GPU's and has amazing exclusives.

    Xbox one X was on sale for Sub $500 during sales..still cheaper than a 580 system with cpu and other parts.

    It's situational. I bought a Vega 64 at launch for $100 less than a 1080 and it performs better in the games I play. So it was the best purchase for me. Although I will say the power draw and heat generation of the be Vega is no longer worth it in a case with little to no airflow which is why I've since moved to a founders edition 1080

    Either your grasp of the English language is absolutely abysmal or you don't understand the difference between taking the crown and releasing high performance cards.

    So you'd say a 1080 isn't high performance?
    What about a 980 (during its prime)?

    Don't know what fantasy world some of the fanboys on this forum are living in, but here in the real world AMD provide very competitive performance for the dollar across a huge range of price points. Yes they are not as energy efficient but the performance is there. Energy efficiency used to mean nothing to you all when you were lapping up shithouse Pentium 4's, and even the trainwreck GTX 480 hot mess sold plenty.

    What you all have to understand is that not everyone is buying a fucking 1080 Ti or Titan. And no, just because NVIDIA sells more cards at these price points does not mean the competing AMD cards are "garbage". NVIDIA pumps a lot more money into marketing and forcing their cards down as many gamer-bro's throats as possible.

    $700 Vega 64 competes very closely with the $700 GTX 1080.
    $600 Vega 56 is generally faster than the $600 GTX 1070.
    $400 RX 580 competes very closely with the $400 GTX 1060.
    $280 RX 570 is generally faster than a $280 1050 Ti.

    Feel free to look at reviews and current street prices if you had a different idea in your heads.

    i always wanted to buy amd because i fear they will bankrupt so i wanted to support them. but having a bit more performance than 1080 at 295w compared to 180w is just no ok in my book. electricity in aus is expensive and i dont like to sweat. in the future i dont want to buy anything above 120w to reduce heat/noise mainly.

    2 parts of bugger all heat from my GPU and electricity isn't too bad, I'm more concerned about the power use of my servers.

    I feel the same. I loved my Vega 64 but in a system the size of mine it's hard to justify when the 1080 is quieter, cooler and performs almost the same

    a 1080 is but 1080 performance 2 YEARS after a 1080 was released is meh =--- average at best

    its a bit like you saying a 1968 Mustang fast back is considered a high performance car by todays standards -- sorry it might have been in 1968 today it is just a slow POS

    maybe nvidias next gpu's will have smaller dies im skipping these not just for the insane price but stupid design in general, in 5+ years ill jump on gaytracing when amd and hopefully intel get in on it.

    that is $700 or the same price for a card that only just matched -- ** in SOME games *** the performance of a card released 2 years earlier than it -- and the 1080 can be found for less than $700

    why would you wait for Vega

    you should have bought the 1080 and had 1080 performance Years earlier AND not have to sell your soul to power it.

    -- anyone saying wait for 7nm vega or navi will be sadly disappointed -- if they think it will make any difference -- Even if( and thats a BIG IF) it can match the 2080 performance it will be priced at the same level as it -- so what will the point of waiting be?

    i like it they will "finally drop" they aren't even out....

    also cards will be priced at what the market will bear. AMD were just as happy to price high during the mining boom for their lesser GPU's. If there are a small pool of players and gamers are buying then - that's where the prices stay.

    You keep saying 2 years, but I think you mean 14mths. point is fair enough though.

    Actually no they wern't. Neither AMD or Nvidia raised the MSRP during the mining boom
