So, more expensive, slower, uses more power and runs hotter than a 1080.

Yeah, I can really see the appeal of wanting to buy one of these.

It's beautiful though. *sigh*. Such a shame PC suck at everything but making their cards desirable. The RX 480 should have been much better than it was, too.

Theres nothing 'wrong' with this card. The limitations always are the core....

Ah OK. Was just going on the comment above. The 480 one was pants though. Sapphire was much better at clocking etc. Still preferred the Devil for looks though

The 480 caught them off guard and the cooler they had for it wasnt up to the task and then they turned the power down to a level the cooler could cope with and then that mean it performed pants.

This is a cracking card but any issues are just down to the fact its Vega sadly

If you are intrested in variable refreshrate monitors you can easily find a good Freesync monitor, and that will let you actually spend less in total than going with a 1080 and a Gsync monitor.

Although these coolers look nice, Vega needs water to shine, I've seen a V64 get close to 9000 GPU score on the new Futuremark Cyan VR benchmark compared to the same card getting 7700 on air.

Thanks for the review

Thanks for the review!

I am not clear on how you did the OC though. Did you undervolt it?

I did read the text as well as looking at the graphs, maybe I am not reading well at 1:30 AM

Seeing as they made the XB1X with 40 polaris CUs, what was stopping them releasing bigger cards than the 480/580?
Im tempted to think a polaris card with 64 CUs would have been better than V64, if not it would have atleast been a bit more efficient/less ridiculous.
