I figured that top card would be pricey. I am sure they will get plenty of people to buy it though it is a nice looking card.
I agree, to me 300 to 400 is still a lot for a GPU and that doesn't get you much right now compared to the top cards. When you can buy a whole console for 500 it does make wonder how they get the sales. However as you can't even buy a single RTX 2xxx or 3xxx series card right now apparently people will spend the money. It really tells you how unpopular the navi cards are as you can get them no problem and the performance is decent for the price it's just that I think it's reputation precedes it at this point. It will be interesting to see if RDNA2 does fix this. However it will cost you around 600 bucks to find out at a minimum, ouch.
Woah: Just noticed this on the Sapphire Specification:
Linux®, Windows® 7*, Windows® 10, and Windows 8.1. 64-bit operating system required.
Windows 8.1 64bit OS?
AMD dropped support for Windows 8.1 64bit OS pre- launch of RX Vega GPUs with this:
AMD page says these OS supported:
OS Support Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition Linux x86_64
Will Windows 7 drivers be provided for RX6000 series?
Will there be a way to install Windows 7 drivers on Windows 8.1 64 bit OS for RX6000 series?
Will Windows 10 Driver for RX6000 series install on Windows 8.1 64 bit OS?
Their probably just saying it will work with Win 7 and Win 8.1 to help boost sales. I'm sure you won't be able to find drivers for the two O|S. Kinda like "Crossfire Compatible"
Windows 7 must die, the sooner the better.
And unfortunately for 8.1. ,7 users poobarred it so much you got 10.
In which case they should not advertise those OS.
Used to be able to run Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 Windows 7 Drivers on Windows 8.1 64 bit.
Windows 7 drivers were still provided for AMD GPUs.
Pretty sure that Adrenalin 2020 drivers would not install on Windows 8.1 64bit at all last time I checked.
