since the best AMD has to offer is Radeon VII which is just 10-15% faster than Vega 64, and it struggles to get to the performance of an RTX 2080 which is also just like a GTX 1080ti , consider that Navi will not be a very good performer, but if the price is the correct one....well...

For the time being, AMD needs a direct competitor to RTX 2060. RTX 2060 oced = GTX 1070ti oced = 1080 = Vega 64.

RX 590 cannot compete with this RTX 2060. The price is around 369$ (369€ in Europe). So, unless we get a good AMD card in that range of price with comparable performance.....And i don't see AMD getting that. But we will see.

The 590 is not meant to compete with the 2060. For a start it costs £100 less. Now the 2050? or whatever they call it? yes, that's probably going to be competition.

Vega 56 is what competes with the 2060, given it costs around £40 less than the 2060. I think you will find it's pretty evenly matched, costs £40 less and comes with 3 free games worth £100.

So unless you can't live without RTX and BFV you'd be pretty crazy not to get the 56.

Not only that but depending on which shops you're looking at, you can pick up the RoG Vega64 for less than the RoG 2060. Given the choice, I'd have the Vega card any day of the week.

£429 for the ROG 2060

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus-...gx-41x-as.html

£390 for the Vega. So £40 less. What you should be buying, however, is this.

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/sapph...gx-38f-sp.html

When it dips to £299, like it has about five times. Seems OCUK like playing Peekaboo with the price lol.

The games? those are selling to other Vega owners for £50+. So that makes it nearly £100 cheaper than the 2060, if you decided to sacrifice the games.

The choice seems so obvious when you cherry pick a deal on Vega and consider the anthem or bfv code you get with 2060 worthless.

That is not a deal on Vega. That is now pretty much the normal price. If it went up? there would be no point to it at all, hence why it's dropped so much. I'm comparing prices on cards you can buy today. No one knows what will happen tomorrow..

Any way, I didn't say I considered the code for BFV worthless. It is, however, ironically worth less. Far less, I bought a genuine key for £20 about a month or more ago because the game wasn't selling (I wonder why? couldn't be anything to do with RTX being so expensive, could it?). Nvidia code? worth about £15 tops to sell, not the £50-£60 I've seen the triple game pack making from Vega. Mostly because every one is going bat crap over RE2, and it costs around £50. The Division 2 will be £50 at launch too, and will be a AAA title IMO.

But yes, if OCUK and others want to sell any Vega cards at all they need to be cheap.

The battle never stops ending.. What do you think will be Nvidia's answer to this AMD's great leap.?

just a few questions.

the cheapest new vega 56 in the biggest retailer in my country is just only 20€ less than an RTX 2060.

With Vega 56 you get 3 games: RE2, Division 2 and Devil may cry 5 i think. With RTX 2060 you can get BFV or Anthem code.

seen a lot of videos of Vega 56 vs RTX 2060. In the majority of games, wins RTX 2060 (except those particularly designed for AMD cards). Some games favour one or the other. but the hole picture is that RTX 2060 is better.

It also has a "new" technology for the future vs obsolete Vega tech. Also Vegas are hotter, less overclockable and much more power hungry than RTX.

the RTX 2060 oced is almost an RTX 2070 stock. I don't know why would you chose a card that is clearly worse than an Nvidia (unless you are in team red for the win) and don't care about any products from the competitors, which seems to be your case.

I would chose, ANY DAY OF THE YEAR an RTX 2060 over a Vega 56.
