Very good value now.

Also curious if they set prices higher than normal to see what Nvidia would do and then undercut them anyway.

Much more realistic but still more than it should have been, IMO.

They may have planned this all along. Make the price stupid before it's even released, wait for Nvidia to respond before it's even released and "drop" the price before it's even released and look like you've done everyone a huge favour whilst still getting over the top prices.

And yes before someone says it things like that happen all the time. All it takes is some marketing intelligence, smoke and mirrors and you're quids in.

Yeah, I'm thinking that's it. At first I thought they were being greedy trying to cash in on Nvidia's new pricing standards and got bitten by it big time. They still have done that a little, but it looks like they anticipated dropping their prices.

I'll be quite interested in a 5700 or a 5700 XT if I can sell my GTX 1080 for £300 or thereabouts. I know it's totally a side-grade, but I would like an all-AMD build finally and nothing else from either companies interest me.

I don't think this was planned, it's not really a segment shift, more the kind of adjustments we usually get between paper launch and actual launch day pricing(RTX Super prices had a similar change on launch day didn't they?). Seems like the GBP prices have changed by £10-20 from what they would have been. There'd be no point using it as smoke and mirrors because small changes to pricing is the one thing a tech company can change on a dime and NVidia is no different.

Deffo wait for reviews because I've seen hints this could be another hot potato. Remember, they're outgunned and outnumbered so they'll have to push them hard and - eeww, blower.

The 5700XT is a 225W part and 5700 is 180W so it's roughly high-end Polaris power draw, somewhat larger dies so should be slightly cooler.

I would personally wait for after market cards. That's something AMD needs to fix. They need aftermarket cards from the start. Not a month later.

The first impression is the most important. They never cash in on that with crappy blower cards.

As much as I don't like blower coolers, there is a clear reason why they are used for "reference" designs. There is a reason why Nvidia's latest Founders Editions are not reference, and it's not just because of their factory overclock and pricing.

Blower coolers work well with every PC, requiring little thought when it comes to airflow. Avial designs require great case airflow to work optimally, whereas the "out the rear" exhaust nature of blower coolers simplifies things significantly.

From a design perspective, a blower style reference cooler works well in basically all environments, especially in small form factor builds and OEM systems.

I do agree that AMD needs to work with OEMs to have launch ready custom cards. Enthusiasts don't want blower cards.

can´t wait for intel to step into the market so we have at least 3 players.


todays GPU prices are nonsense.



i don´t agree with them on everything they say about the current GPU situation but on many things (and i like that i am not the only one upset).

there are enough chills in the media who will accept basically every stupid price these two companys will set.
