It will really come down to pricing. It'll also be important what type of performance Vega will yield at lower resolutions. If card is sold for say $450-475, which is possible when you consider how aggressive RX480 pricing is, then it's not a bad product at all.
I voted 9/10 because:
This build looks very neat and organized. Definitively looks like it was built with passion. Great job.
p.s. i dont know what is wrong with all these people giving this build 3-5 score.
lol looks like we got a trolling individual here, cmon man u're better than this. U gave 5 few other good builds too. This particular build looks amazing, i bet yours doesn't look even close to this one. People like you just amaze me.
Thanx for your comments guys.
Just to let you know fans are relatively slow - only 1000 rpm. Also i keep my pc on the desk and there are no kids or pets in the house. So in my case its pretty safe i'd say to keep it the way it is. Also regarding dust problem - it does get a little dusty but...
My personal guess - same amount of ROP's is what makes 7870 so close to 7950. Looks like ROP count is what mostly determines performance of new AMD gpu's. In addition lack of stream processors in 7870 comparing to 7950 compensated with higher core clock 1000mhz vs 800mhz, but again thats just my...
both shroud and fan look pretty cheap for $400 card if you ask me. Also i was wondering about 7970 - where the f... did backplate go? is it really that expansive to supply $600 card with a sheet of metal to make it look nice in the case?
we will never know all details about this test cause its not even test, just another portion of marketing type of crap, the point is AMD vs Intel comparison organized by AMD is kind of hard to trust - unless you are hardcore AMD fanboy which is just silly, like any other fanboyism. It has been...
I'd probably buy this if test was made by 3rd party, but @ the event hosted by AMD - meeh. And what drivers they used for both machines? personally im not sure if both pc's were identical other than cpu/mobo. Looks shady to me. What i know for sure from other independently made reviews is that...
