Is the Radeon Pro Duo Polaris a good choice for this build?

SO, I'm going to go into Adobe Creative Cloud, Blender with maybe once in a blue moon Batman Arkham Knight or FFXV.

As I wanted enough power to do the 3D and video editing.compositing thing, I picked the Pro Duo Polaris. Is this overkill? Or is it already "old"?

Here's the build I'm working on: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/yz3BcY

Thanks for any insights or alternatives to the graphics card...

This website gives some good tips on how to choose the right parts for video editing computer plus both Nvidia (mostly) and AMD graphics cards that are good for video editing.

Concerning using Adobe software for video editing : Intel or AMD? | Adobe Community

Seems the more important hardware for video editing is the CPU that is installed rather than the GPU card.

Anyway, all this links may help you decide on what you want.

By The Way, that is one powerful computer setup you are going to use. Impressive.

Thanks. I figured it was time to stop goofing around and get serious (hence the pro line of cards) and AMD really has stepped up. And I was not keen on the inflated price for the Intel name either. I'm assuming that this build will also handle VR development?
