Default Radeon VII, what do you guys think ?

Just read the first review and I am impressed, I did not expect that much power in that card.

Given that it can only get better and cheaper, we have a real alternative imho.

I have to wonder why it was tested on a 5960x @4.2ghz. Some heavy bottlenecking there @ 2560x1440 and lower resolution in at least a couple of the dx11 titles.

Still.. thing looks like a good contender @ $700

great card, but needs mature drivers to really show its stuff.

Its meant for 1440P or 4K. In 4K arena looks great against a 2080 and a cheaper (but less powerful) alternative to 2080Ti thanks to that impressive 16Gb HBM2 memory.

Stay away from it at 1080P. There are cheaper alternatives with more consistent performance.

EDIT: wait for partner cards. Less noise and better drivers by then.

I haven't looked at the benchmarks yet but from what I've read this is more of a placeholder until navi comes out. I've seen reports that AMDs cost is upwards of 650+ for the card and they're making little if any profit. In very short supply also. Newegg sold out very quickly. Apparently only 100-200 cards went to the UK and some countries only got around 20.

I think I'd consider it if I were looking for 2070 ~ 2080 some of the results seemed good even compared to 2080Ti for the money.

But we need a DCS/DCS VR rating be interested to to see what people here find for DCS our pricing means you could get a better CPU or memory in the build.

It would be nice to hear some of that FragBum, absolutely.

The 16GB could help so could the 1TB/sec bandwidth.

Heck, add Vulkan and ..... need a coffee !!!

Yes higher VRAM bandwidth plus on servers I get 10GB + VRAM usage so more and faster VRAM should help.

Keen to see how it does in VR performance with DCS.

Indeed, pre-release drivers are usually far from optimized. It's looking promising for AMD. I'm sure this card is why Nvidia want to release their next genaration as early as Q4 2019 - Q1 2020.

Let us rejoice , Nvidia has the performance of a rival.
