    here in the UK we are slowly getting the Vega64 cards for pre order ( https://www.overclockers.co.uk/pc-co...eon-rx-vega-64 ) but atm im not liking the look of them bar the asus card. and some are just like the ref cards with a not so great cooling system. with all the problems AMD are having with this Vega release im truly considering going back to Nvidia for the first time since the 90's when they first started. if the 1080ti comes down in price in the jan sales i may get the Asus version of that.
    im just not sure what to do atm.

    Cost of HBM 2 driving the price up. Hence all the noise about AMD going GDDR6 for Navi.

    Even the Titan V, which sports HBM 2 is a ridiculous $3000. Christ, I recently bought a used Volvo S80 T6 for only $1200 more.

    And speaking of memory, DDR4 prices expected to climb in 2018, as well.

    In either case, I may be done with Vega, as well. I am certainly done with ASUS and the Strix, no more doubt here.

    Well, my options are limited as my daughter and I are building this PC together for her so it's hard to say what I'm going for next because this is really her rodeo. She wanted an all AMD build. Personally I also want to stick with AMD mainly due to Intel's policy to change socket or chipset every time someone over there has a nap. And Nvidia releasing Titans like they're rain droplets. And now, the latest $3000 Titan V.

    Anyway, we already got the R7 1700 and for VGA she wanted the ROG Strix RX Vega but I had to tell her there are better options. These include PowerColors Red Devil which she really loves, and then there is the Sapphire Nitro + which she also took a liking to. For custom Vega the Sapphire is at the top of my list.

    Recently there have been more reviews surfacing detailing custom RX Vega performance and the Strix STILL looks bad so I'm recommending everyone steer clear of her. The Red Devil looks the best performance wise, whilst the Nitro + looks the best aesthetically. And although the Nitro + has 3 PCI-E power connectors she doesn't actually need more power than the others based on WCCFTECH reviews. The power draw was much less than expected, but the consensus was that the power delivery was streamlined (whatever that means).

    Here's what I think will happen in the end. The Strix RX Vega which is still worse than its reference siblings is gone. ASUS mucked that up. PCs Red Devil is the next Vega option but will most likely not be available in Canada and I don't want to pay another premium on delivery, ffs. So, that leaves the Sapphire Nitro + 56 as the sole option if the build is to become all AMD as per specification. Given the cards specs, peformance and styling I will go with Sapphire's Nitro + 56, under volt her a tad, maintain fps parity whilst siphoning (hopefully) just slightly more power than Nvidia's 1080. Then I'll report back here and tell anyone who's interested whether or not it was a worthwhile purchase.

    Finally got my Strix 56 in, if anyone has anyone questions about it let me know! It's by far one of the nicest cards I've ever owned is MUCH cooler/quieter than the AMD blower cards.. Anyone else get their hands on it yet?

    How does it perform relative to the reference Vega 56? Reviews showed the ASUS 64 Strix inferior with the Sapphire Nitro+ having the best cooling, and the PowerColor Red Devil best performing, I believe, in terms of fps.

    On a side note, I messed up building this new PC. When I was looking for a Vega card they were nowhere to be found here in Canada. From ANY manufacturer. So I waited a little. Only to be greeted with higher prices and infinite "Out of Stock" bulletins.

    Just now prices are beginning to come down to rational levels. I hope Nvidia releases the 11XX series soon. That should at least help drive prices down faster on old stock.

    Any chance you could comment on my questions please? thanks.
