2070S is both faster, carries more feature and the drivers are more stable. It's also more expensive, if you would upgrade the board in order to.leave room for a CPU upgrade then it may not be a good option. Or you could save money on the PSU

RTX 2070 super. Better drives, more features. Although they might be similar performing. Nvidia releases better support and updates

Also gaming

Too late to send the board back ? The MSI X570-A PRO isn't very good. You would have been better going with a B450 board like the Tomahawk MAX.

I'm in the same boat choosing between those cards. Personally looking at the Nitro+ and Gigabytes windforce card. Its a $40 difference on Amazon.

 

Yesterday I ordered the 2070s basically out of fear of the driver issues on the 5700xt. I also have been running a Gigabyte windforce GTX 970 since 2014 ish and I still game on it to this day with zero issues so I figured I might as well go with what I know.

 

From my research it seems that if you get the Red Devil or Nitro+ you should be good to go, similar performance with a cheaper price tag and they run cool/quiet. The only caveat is you run an increased risk of driver issues with the AMD card. Keep in mind this is based on my unprofessional opinion gained from lots of reading online not personal experience.

Driver issues have been fixed according to reviewers.

Get the 2070 Super especially if your sister uses Blender 2.81 or later as Nvidia optix will speeds things up significantly. Otherwise I would recommend Nvidia simply for the fact that this is for work and Nvidia invests a lot more time and money into their drivers, and they are generally more stable.

I haven't seen much concrete on the subject. Some say they are better but others are currently (as in this week) still have blue screens, black screens and other issues.

 

If you sort reviews on the most popular buying sites by "most recent" people are still complaining and returning cards because they aren't able to get them running properly. It certainly seems to be less common though so I do think they have improved things quite a bit since release.

No worries, i had just watched hardware Unboxed and they said the new driver fixed things. If folks still have issues, then smart to stay away.

AMD has made major strides in a major update, but there are still too many issues for a work PC. Nvidia is significantly more stable.
