Hi
right when I was placing an order for the components of my new Ryzen 1700 build (Photoshop, Lightroom, some video editing), I found out that the RX570/580 are sold out anywhere in Germany and will not be restocked before July/August. Apparently this is due to a strong demand from bitcoin miners (but why only Radeon cards???).

So now I am in trouble as Ryzen need a GPU to work. I was suggested a rx570 as more appropriate for Adobe software (that uses OpenCL?) but now? :( Any recommendation?

You could purhace the rx570 in denmark, but you will have to do it right now before the last ones get sold out:

Lightroom prefers nvidia gpu's so get a gtx 1060 6gb.

All, thanks for your help.
I see that the 3gb version of the 1060 would cost 190 euro (in line with RX570 but with 1gb less), while 6gb would be 270 at least which is a bit off my budget.. :(
