If I can get a Radeon VII...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I might be able to get a Radeon VII for about the same price as a high end RTX 2070, Think in the $580ish range. A good comparison would be an EVGA XC Ultra 2070 to a Radeon VII. I'd love to read some opinions about which is the better buy. Bear in mind that I'm in this for value, I don't buy hardware based on brand allegiance. Gaming is the primary use case, some light video and photo editing are secondary use cases. Edit: upgrading from an MSI Aero GTX 1070 ITX card. No need to worry about the form factor, as my system is now an ATX sized system.

2080 vs vii is a normal compare

The Radeon VII outperforms an RTX 2080. What's the rest of your PC?

9700k, Gigabyte z390 Aorus pro wifi, 32GB 3000mhz RAM, H150i CPU cooler, enough fans, Lianli 011 Dynamic, 850W EVGA PSU.

Get the Radeon VII. Don't think a lot about it.

upu can probably get a pretty penny from that if you sell it on the used market. 

 

people still pay very odd prices for used parts. all you need is the right buyer.

Thats what I'm thinking, but it started acting really strangely; artifacts, frame drops, etc. No OC on it either. Not sure if a driver issue or a cooler issue. Temps suddenly got real high, I'm waiting on some kryonaut to replace the paste and see if that fixes it. Might hold onto it for a small travel PC. I'd decided on this upgrade well before the 1070 started acting weird, though.

how old is it?

 

could be the cable, if not you might be able to RMA.

3 years maybe? Not sure how long it sat on the shelf before I bought it. Definitely not old enough to be doing what its doing. It's decidedly out of warranty though.

Its not 3 years old. Also its from date of purchase. 

 

But since its out of warranty all you can do is eliminate variables like the cable etc. 

 

The cable is often the culprit or perhaps the port.
