RX 5700 or wait?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I'm struggling with my Vega 56 because of the painful fan noise and the high power consumption. I have to choose between upgrading my PSU (it's a 400W Bequiet! PurePower) and UPS, investing in a 5700 (about $450 including shipping and import fees but I'll sell the Vega for about $200) or wait a few months and buy a next generation AMD GPU. The latter seems the most reasonable to me but this would also mean waiting 3-4 months with no clear idea of the prices on release and the gains in performance and power efficiency.

 

What would you recommend? I mostly play single player action games like Tomb Raider. I have a 4K monitor but I don't mind lowering the resolution to make the game run at ultra settings and 60 FPS. However I care a lot about acoustics, temperature, and power consumption. For instance I can see that I can get about 10% extra performance with the 5700 while consuming 50W less than my undervolted Vega (and like half the power consumption of a regular Vega 56). This would mean less stress on my PSU without having to upgrade it, and also being able to use my computer for a longer period when the UPS kicks in.

 

Thanks

Wait till September if you can - RTX 3000 and RDNA 2 are coming

I would wait. And honestly, with how mind-breakingly amazing DLSS is, I have a hard time not recommending NVidia cards. I would probably pick up a used 2080 Super once the new RTX cards are out and that drops for cheap.

I would wait. I have a 5700XT and at 1440p while most games I play run fairly well pushing 75 - 120 fps depending on the title, some newer titles are bringing it down into the 30 - 60 FPS range. I have been personally eying the 2080 Super, but have been very patiently waiting on next Gen Navi.

Sounds more reasonable indeed but it would suck to not be able game properly all summer.

The 2080 Super is quite power hungry too and TBH I'm not all that impressed by Real Tracing so far considering the number of games to support it and the impact on performance. Since RDNA2 would support it I'd rather stay team red.

RTX is not worth it, sucks about the power supply had same issue myself but it was because it was a shit one not due to wattage... 650w yeah right Cooler Master!!! O3O EVGA is my go to PSU now and I heard Seasonic also makes good 80+ gold ones as well. 😉

think of the RTX on the 2000 cards as the "test" gen. AMD doesnt even have Ray Tracing on their gaming cards yet, and when they do, itll be a "test" generation as well.

 

leaks and stuff propose that RTX off and on performance will be the same on the 3000 cards.

 

wait for next gen.


stuff is cool. stuff that has fancy lighting is cooler. stuff that has fancy lighting and works is the coolest.

 

i game so i know a bit abt gaming tech, not much abt professional tech.

 

writing this as i finish a 3 hour D2 sesh so excuse anything wrong.

Actually keeping the card and upgrading the PSU is a much cheaper option too at about $100 in total so I'm not sure if I should do it. Then the only issue would be the noise.

Eeeh yeah that is kinda hard to fix, no Vega aftermarket Cooler I know exists, if it was a RX 580 or 5700XT you could just buy a Artic Accelero III... 🤔

Eeeh yeah that is kinda hard to fix, no Vega aftermarket Cooler I know exists, if it was a RX 580 or 5700XT you could just buy a Artic Accelero III... 🤔

Yep the only solution would be a custom loop but that would cost more than a new GPU. I did consider investing in that but again at this $500 price range, I would much rather invest in an air conditionner.

I use this on my 5700XT due to noise and temps. ID-COOLING FROSTFLOW 120 VGA Graphic Card Cooler AIO

Works fairly well if you have decent case airflow for vram cooling. Pump is questionable at that price. Not sure if it would fit on a Vega Card, but uses a universal mount.

 

Otherwise NZXT makes mounting hardware for some of its AIO's for GPU Use. Same with Airflow and Vram cooling, would also need to purchase some heatsinks.

Unfortunately none of these is compatible with Vega cards.
