    Which cards to buy

    kamolinka1

      Which one would You pick (mostly in terms of gaming performance 2k ultra 60hz-as I doubt this will 144hz haha):

       

      -2x Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8G NITRO+ SE 1257 - boost 1430Mhz

      -MSI Radeon RX 580 GAMING X+ 8G 1340 - boost 1431Mhz or single Radeon RX VEGA 56 Limited Edition 8GB HBM2 2048BIT

      -2x Radeon RX VEGA 56 Limited Edition 8GB HBM2 2048BIT 1247 - boost 1546Mhz or single RX VEGA 64 8GB HBM2 PCI-E limited editon, SKU# 21275-01 (if I ever find one XD)

       

      @update

       

      Been digging on my own and now I'm closer to buying it.

      But the problem is that, no matter which I choose it costs the same or even less!

      So help me choose, based on the company???:

       

      ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX Vega 64 = 580 USD,

      Palit Radeon RX VEGA 56 Limited Edition 8GB HBM2 2048BIT (light silver plate) = 700 USD

      Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB 11275-03-40G = 700 USD

      Palit ATI Radeon RX VEGA 64 PCI-E Sapphire 8GB HBM2 BOX (2048-bit) [21275-02-20G] (black version with red R) = 700 USD

      2 of Sapphire RADEON RX 580 NITRO+ Special Edition = 700 USD

      2 of 2 of MSI Radeon RX 580 GAMING X+ 8GB = 700 USD

          Honestly I would hold off on buying any video card right now. Black Friday deals start next month, and AMD has so far refused to adjust Vega 64 prices (due to the high price of HBM2 no doubt), which allows the GTX 1080 to, sadly, be the better buy. The RTX 2070 will be released by then which will force AMD to react. AMD has all but confirmed a Polaris 12nm LP refresh which are expected to bring a 10% performance benefit over the RX 500 series, so prices will have to also adjust down for the RX 500 series.

              Thanks for the informational message:)

              "AMD has all but confirmed a Polaris 12nm LP refresh which are expected to bring a 10% performance benefit over the RX 500 series" - means that rx580 will get V2?

               

              1 thing is that I'm from Poland and basing those prices purely on our "amazon" service wannabee + 1 store with "normal prices". Elsewhere in big hardware markets Vega 64 can cost You even 915 - 1050 USD!!! So I think that, 700 isn't a bad deal.

              Hell, Nitro + 64 is nearly unreachable here, light silver Vega 64 is out of stock.

              So I'm willing to buy it or wait a wee bit longer.

              Still it doesn't change the fact that, I've posted 6 possibilities and want to know which one to choose.

                  Alright, Newegg Global then. If you absolutely positively had to buy one TODAY, and you could only choose one, Vega64 would be the better choice (shipping is 147,40 zł), which equals out to 2,013.39 zł  ($541.68), but as I said for the love of God don't unless you absolutely positively have to buy one right now until AMD cuts the prices of Vega cards. You don't want to deal with the headaches of a two card setup as scaling can range anywhere from 0-100%, and introduce factors not present in single card setups such as microstuttering.

                I recommend waiting a month to see if AMD released the 680 which is supposed to improve perform by +10%-15% over 580. If true, this would put it near the vega 56 performance level for much less.
