    I just want an upgrade to the RX580 that can fit in 2 slots (my case can't take anything larger). The Sapphire cards are 2.2 slots and the ROG STRIX cards are usually 2.5 to 3 slots.

    I'm more concerned to get a card that doesn't suck down more watts than a beserk-mode microwave.

    And it was supposed to be a replacement for Polaris in the midrange, there's not a whole lot of performance to drop before you end up at the 590 and those cards go for 220 USD. That's a pretty wide price delta.



    Anyway, won't be long until E3. We'll know then.
    Navi is Vega without expensive HMB2. Sould be cheaper than that leak imo, but they just got some profit margins back by using gddr6. Word is still that radeon groupd cant wait to fuck it off though

    Other new leaks. New X580 mobos for Zen2 have been a bit fuckey. Need active cooling fans and big heat sinks. Slowing the release somewhat. However, Zen 2 has a 5 gig OC 12 core part with 10 to 12% ipc improvements over thelast gen ryzen stuff. Spicey. Means that theres a 16 core part out there.

    I've seen people saying that some of the 570 chipset boards have active cooling because of the PCIe 4

    AMD is a business, not a charity.
    I would have done the same.

    C

    They will all have beefy heatsinks and might be a tad closer to equivalent intel mobo rather than the cheaper 470s and so on of past amd, because of these requirements and a few other issues. The interposer is supposed to cost the suppliers $50 before you even start.

    Yes, that does seem to be the case. It's likely the fan won't spin unless you plug in a PCIe 4.x device driven by the chipset's lanes, which in practice means a 4.x capable M.2 SSD.

    One would hope. Those chipset fans from the past were truly annoying. A thin sheet of aluminum together with a 30mm fan that shredded its ball bearings after 6 months...God I hated those things.

    Chipset fans were the main reason I built my first watercooled pc and when it was time to upgrade all chipsets were passively cooled again. Packed up the watercooler kit and stowed it away.

    Found it.

    I that Asetek gear? Haven't seen something like that in a really long time.

    I like the stuff coming out of AMD lately and tbh the market will speak up if their GFX prices are unreasonable.



    I did start recently thinking about an upgrade, but at the current RAM prices I'd rather go for another tattoo

    I think RAM prices have actually dropped a lot these last few months. At least my Corsair Vengeance are now close to half the price of when i bought them about a year ago, and i have noticed several other Vengeance series also are a lot cheaper now

    GSKill 64GB DDR4 kits are close to 1000 quid, I paid like 500 for mine (yes, it was 2013 or so, still...).

    Unsure if Corsair adjusts their pricing bit better, but I was happier with GSkill (less RMA-ing so to speak).

    Edit: apparently 128GB kits are around 800 quid, which is acceptable (in 8 modules). I suppose it's not so bad, depending on what you can find. RGB kits are more expensive for some reason?

    RAM prices have indeed been dropping but its a bit hit and miss around here (and still higher than before the great ram price hike). eg, from the same store I can get 16GB kits of Vengeance LPX 2666MHz for the same price as Vengeance LPX 2400MHz and for $10 LESS get Vengeance LPX 3000MHz.. RGB seems to add almost $50 to the price..

    In the meantime i got a set of 2x8gb rgb 3200 ram that's working flawlessly for 100 dollars.

    Ram prices have dropped a shitload.

    Yet 10 years ago 12GB of DDR3 was only 120, so slower and a little less of it but I am not impressed by 10 years of innovation.

    They innovated their pricing scheme.

    Also, this is the video card thread, not the RAM thread.

    It's a personal preference based on personal anecdotal experience. Are you happy now?
