      Hi,

       

      Does anyone own a PowerColor Red Dragon RX Vega 56. What is your experience with the card?
      They seem to be the only 2 slot high RX Vega card I can get today with a non reference cooler at a reasonable price.
      In addition they have a small R9 Nano sized PCB and could make for a very good, small, watercooled gpu if I decided to fit a waterblock once the GPU guarantee is void.

       

      I am thinking of buying one to mount in a PowerColor Thunderbolt 3 eGPU Box

      Unfortunately PowerColor's own Red Devil  Vega 64 is too big and too power hungry to work with their own eGPU box.

       

      All Vega 64 AIB cards are too big and too power hungry to fit in any reasonably priced thunderbolt 3.0 eGPU boxes I have seen so far.
      Razer Core X might be an exception.

       

      If anyone has purchased and run an RX Vega 56 Red Dragon, please let me know what you think of the card.

      I had thought they were EOL'ed but it seems they are back on resale now.
      If anyone thinks I should wait to see what Nvidia RTX cards are launched tomorrow (20 August) then sure I understand that.
      However I do need to keep at least 1 modern AMD GPU running in the meantime.
      I do not see any news of  AMD RX Vega GPU 7nm refresh for gamers/consumers this year, so I might just purchase one PowerColor  RX Vega 56 Red Dragon GPU.

       

      Thanks.
