What would u pick?

Between a high end 2070, a mid tier 2080( FE base perf), or a radeon vii


Currently have a radeonVii recently purchased, but am unsure if I feel buyers remorse? I love the card and it does great and got it for around 630 so a some what good deal. But if you were give the option what would you guys have picked? I chose the radion as it had the perf I wanted but in the back of my mind I'm reminded what an oced 2070 can do and then my thoughts come too the upcoming navi with its rumored perf and I wonder if I should return it and wait. But what do you guys think?

Radeon VII is = or better to a 2080, so you should have no buyers remorse from that purchase. Its a good card. Navi is going to replace the RX5XX lineup.. will not push into the higher end spectrum with the 2080 or Radeon VII territory.

Keep it. IIRC Radeon VII will trade blows with the RTX2080 in some titles.

Literally just buy a 1920x is best CPU

Radeon VII is the better buy. Ray Tracing is only on a few games still, and performance isn't great. And DLSS is nonsense at the moment, it's like smearing Vaseline all over the screen. That 8gb extra memory on the Radeon VII makes it a killer at 4k and even 1440p compared to the 2080. Not to mention, the better 2080's will be hunted down by AMD Finewine over the next few years in those games where Radeon VII is slightly behind.


I bought a Radeon VII because I wasn't going to fall into the Turing VRAM trap. I'm glad you did too.

a "high-end" 2070 is a non starter, the base 2070 has the worst price:performance ratio of all the low end cards, is worse in every sense to a radeon vii, as for radeon vii i've heard from different users that it's a bit better or worse than a 2080, (from the techtubers it's about 3-4% worse when both cards are fully oc'd. For 630 usd, you saved 70usd over the 2080 (no point minmaxing unless 2080 ti), which imho is BY FAR the best choice (unless you are playing metro exodus, that game's DXR after all the patches is gorgeous, but it's one game).


Let's assume you are pay 550 for a high-end 2070 vs a vii for 630, that's 80usd more for 15%~ more performance, which roughly =5usd/%, i'll take that almost everytime for a faster card within budget.


The 2080 and vii will both do 4k/60, and a 2070 won't do anything a 2060 won't do (1440p/60 or 1080p/120)

Fastest of the bunch + double the Memory of the 2080.


There is no reason to fear the AMD Card. Especially since you can fiddle around with Wattman to reduce the Power and make the card you want it to be.

In your scenario I think keeping the r7 is the best choice.


Now choosing between the 2070 and 2080 the best option is to move up a tier vs buying a non reference card. That being said the R7 is no slouch and while it doesn't have ray tracing it isn't at an adoption rate that it matters yet.


I also have a feeling that like nvidia, AMD might have a way to introduce it via drivers.
