How is that Vega Red devil treating you? Do you like it? I know there is a downside to the card due to the fact it's not the best ever but I got FreeSync and I just need to use it. From what I've read on the internet about Navi. The top AMD card will be up to 15% faster than Vega 64. Due to that I don't think waiting longer is any good for me.
I suppose the 3000 series Ryzen will be great. I must say I'm impressed with my 2700X. For now, I don't need to change it but if I will get a good deal on the new Ryzen I will get it.
I haven't plugged the Red Devil into any system yet. probably later on today if I get the time. My Gigabyte Vega-64 isn't clocked as high as the Devil is, so I'm not sure how Crossfire will be with them.
I bought the Gigabyte card because it was dirt-cheap compared to buying another Red Devil card.
Maybe later I'll find a deal on another Devil
I'm going to be using the pair of them in an i9-7900X box because it already has a large (1300W) PSU in it. There is a pair of GTX-1080 FE cards running SLI inside of it now and I want to run a few benches before and after the swap. I imagine the 1080s are quicker.
I have my eye on a 34" Freesync screen that a friend is going to sell after Christmas, so these two Vega cards will get to stretch a little.
