I was considering whether I should wait and save up more for a GPU like this. And I concluded that it is overkill when not going straight for a 4K setup, and that 4K is too much a premium for me these days, both in regard to initial cost for GPU and proper screen, and also in regard to energy consumption.
Can't complain about the Radeon I did get instead though (below $500 including 19% VAT here), maxing out the 1440p 144Hz screen in the few games I tried so far, and running at below 10 W in idle mode, such as when browsing. And my next upgrade will likely be a CPU with 3D V-Cache, already having the MB with DDR5 for it.
This may not be good enough for some when wanting 4K or at lower resolution 360 FPS at ultra settings. But just meaning to point out that pretty much "graphically high-end gaming" is still possible even without one of the current GPU flagships, in case someone wonders about this.
