Hello everyone!

Recently i lost my 2080ti due to bad creation of Asus.

Since i got a refund i started looking some GPU's to buy,

I've stumbled across Radeon VII 16G HBM2

I did some research and saw that actual HB Memory is better and faster then GDDR5 i wanted to see with you all,

What do you think about those two and the Radeon GPU it self?

I would like to know some personal opinions not copy paste opinions from websites,

Also just to mention I'm planning to use it strictly for gaming not rendering,designing etc etc.


Thank you!
 
I would go for an AMD Radeon RX5700 for around 360 euro

Or slightly more expensive RX5700xt for around 400euro

Or if you want Nvidia, the 2060 super slots in between the 5700 and 5700xt performance-wise, but cost the most at 420 euro.

I might add, you can turn an RX5700 into an RX5700xt with just a little bios flashing, although this is a pain and will increase heat output and power consumption. That gives you very close to RTX2070super/2080 performance for just 360 euro.

Just dont go for a single fan AMD or Nvidia card at this pricepoint as the coolers will not be great.

What are the specs for the system you would install this GPU in to?

I have a Radeon VII and I like it a lot. I use it for 4K gaming. Performance is excellent, but it gets hots and draws a lot of power from the PSU.

Yeah i was thinking the same way, ofc without the clocking stuff that is really not for me, im a huge bummer for that stuff :D i mean since i have some budget for now i would like to have something long term, dont want to buy 2080ti again since i really do not want to survive another heartattack when something happends to it :D So i might go for either Radeon 70 or 2070 for some longer term solutions.

Thanks for the tips fellas!
