I now have 2x 1920x1080 Quantum dot 125% sRGB, 144hz, freesync monitors and a rx 580

Doom runs very well but wanted to try a vega 56 since not all games are as easy as Doom.

Same card as my rx 580 but vega 56, it gave me 200fps in doom at ultra but temps went up to 82-83c and my custom fancurve went above 50% sometimes over 60% and that was too much for my taste.

Vega 56 ran with my i5-8400 in the 80's to 99% in either project cars 2 or doom, what a disapointing results although 200fps in doom is more than okay.

I guess i have to wait until next year if i want more fps, but for how long?
So you're saying that your card runs hot, noisy and slow? That sounds about right for AMD graphics cards nowadays. With the release of the NVIDIA RTX cards, they're now a very distant second.

Go NVIDIA and never look back.

Try a GTX 1080 and see what a big difference that makes.

And no, this is isn't an NVIDIA fanboy comment. It comes from years of experience with NVIDIA products after switching sides, product reviews and forum comments from around the internet.

I personally would love nothing better than strong competition from AMD, which would bring us much cheaper cards that perform better. Just look at what's happening in the CPU market now that AMD is competitive again. Intel have finally released a CPU that's properly worthy of upgrading from my trusty 2700K: the 9900K. What a monster that's gonna be!

I'd say with the proper settings, it's closer to a 1070 ti, and the Vega 64 in-between the 1080 and 1080 ti. But then, you over clock Pascal and it really shines

Don't really agree with you here, bemoaning competition then making it irrelevant in the same paragraph , by pledging allegiance.
Stick with what you love and what you love will always be the best, no it doesn't work like that imho.

Given Vega 56 is basically GTX 1070, saying it's slow is a bit absurd. Then GTX 1070 is also slow.
I mean at stock, a Vega 56 is more like a GTX 1070ti, not a 1070. I have seen flashed Vega 56's and overclocked ones that are close to a Vega 64 where as a Vega 64 is between a GTX 1080 and a GTX 1080ti. Vega is not as bad as the Nvidia fanboys make it out to be- sure it has some pricing issues, but it's important to note that AMD hasn't been very competitive with Nvida for a few years now. The only reason I got a GTX 1070 is because a had an R9 390X and I didn't want to shell out a ton of money on Fury X- at the time the R9 390X was probably the second or third best AMD GPU, but when I upgraded to my GTX 1070 I got a serious performance boost.

If I can get my hands on a cheap Vega 56 or 64 I will definitely do it, but crypto mining has ruined the AMD GPU market. If all Vega cards were actually priced at MSRP they would be a much better value than a GTX 1070ti, a GTX 1080 or even a GTX 1080ti, but like I said Vega's major problem is pricing. If Navi gets released and we are getting performance that is better than a a GTX 1080ti at a price of $599 and if there aren't any inventory issues then Nvidia is going to get clobbered.

I've said it before and I said it again, with Zen 2 and Navi I think 2019 is going to be AMD's year.

Not saying it's slow

It's just more hot,noisy than i like, once had a asus gtx 1070 strix oc'e cloase to max, i couldn't hear the fans with the stock fane curve.,
