Question Radeon RX Vega 56 VS 1070ti

The RX Vega 56 is one of the best value deals right now, but AMD is releasing new GPUs next month RX5700 at $379 and RX 5700 XT at $449. A 1070 Ti doesn't make a lot of sense right now when you can get an RTX 2070 for the same price. The 5700XT will compete with RTX 2070 and the 5700 will compete with the RTX 2060.

You should also keep in mind that a Vega GPU will require a good amount of power, so you need to have a decent quality built power supply with about 600w to power it efficiently.

If you wanted to buy something right now and for less than that $300, you can choose the 1660Ti for $269

Which has pretty much the same performance.

Or get the RX 580 for $195 with an additional $20 mail in rebate that performs about the same as a 1060

Or look on the used market for something better from nvidia for about $300.

Or wait until the new AMD cards come out and spenda little extra on one of those
 
I would skip the Vega siblings for now and wait for the Navi siblings instead, and see how the prices change. Plus, nVidia announced some "super" stuff, so their prices may change as well on their camp.

Also, the jump from the 980 to the Vega56 would be small-ish anyway, while using* a lot more power (from what I remember). Not worth it IMO.

Cheers!
