That's a fairly decent deal, on what is supposed to be decent AIB model of that GPU.Sapphire Pulse 5700XT ($380 USD)
Well, for right now it's a decent deal. I don't think a 5700XT of any kind is worth more than $300USD with the 3060ti out there, but it's what I could get, and it certainly does the job at 1440p/75Hz/DCS World. As I detailed in our other correspondence, I'm still looking into the mining thing. I just have a tough time blasting my brand new card with high fan speeds and heat right off the bat I know there are settings to adjust...still not ready!That's a fairly decent deal, on what is supposed to be decent AIB model of that GPU.
I just paid $450 for a RX 5700 DD (XFX) model, BNIB from XFX direct on ebay, that's the non-XT model, with all of it's warts (the DD has had some cooling issues).
I also paid $420 ea., @ BestBuy on ebay, for a pair of "XFX Raw II RX 5700XT" cards. I only got the first XFX because these were OOS at the time, then they went back in-stock, so I had to have a pair.
Looking at $2-3/day for each card, should be paid off in maybe 2/3 of a year.
Fixed that for you.Well, for right now it's a decent deal. I don't think a 5700XT of any kind is worth more than $300USD with the 3060ti out there, (If the 3060 ti were actually available, and at MSRP)
Yah, availability is the reason I bought the 5700XT. I just assume everyone knows that mentioning a 'new' GPU implies that we're talking about next year As I've said before, I'll wait until fall 2021 if I feel like upgrading. By then the 30XXti cards and whatever AMD has left to release will be out, should be at MSRP, and will actually be available. The reviews of all the AIB''s will be out too, and the drivers should be pretty mature. Who knows, AMD may even have an answer for DLSS/RT by then. My son is already eyeing up my 5700XT though...Fixed that for you.
Sadly, the 3060 ti is not quite yet available in large qtys. world-wide @ MSRP. Once it is, I expect prices on whatever remaining "new stock" of RX 5700(XT) cards to drop appropriately. As the 3060ti is apparently higher-performance AND higher-efficiency for mining. And of course, faster for gaming, too, than an RX 5700XT.
But, this is still "2020 - the year of irrationality", so IDK.
