    Oh i agree, Polaris is a decent product and the PCIE issue was overblown, but it does seem every release AMD messes up at-least one thing.

    And anyone who thinks that Fiji, and even Vega were acceptable products at release is deluding themselves, this is from a Vega owner, they were massively overpriced at release, i said that when they released. At £400 the Vega 64 is an awesome purchase.

    At £500 the Vega7 would be an awesome purchase, at their current prices.... No... sorry... once they drop down in price next year on specials to £500-£550 they will be a decent buy, especially if we get some aftermarket cooled ones.

    Also after watching Debauers video, its clear the AMD drivers dont work with these cards in an overclocking capacity at all.... If AMD manage to address that, then these cards will look alot better, and add in the AMD finewine over time, these cards will be a solid purchase in 1 years time.

    been trying to order 1 more elsewhere (same price but £6 delivery) and they took longer to sell out of the Saphire cards, asus etc sold out instantly

    the saphire took 40 mins to sell out, all sold now, i couldn't get one from them , my bank thought i was a fraudster ! lol

    at least Gibbo kept me one aside :D

    Overclocking is broken on the current drivers, any attempt actually makes performance regress.

    I think they're just called 'games'.

    I'm personally looking forward to what it does in Division 2 :)

    I disagree, I think it's quite the achievement for AMD :)

    I'm puzzled how the more expensive cards sold out before some of the cheaper ones :confused:

    Come on Jedi you cant be serious :) Dont get me wrong, these cards are awesome if you do any kind of compute work as well as play games... but if your main aim is gaming then no, these cards right now, at their price, no.... in a years time with a price drop, drivers that allow you to overclock, and some non reference models and the usual AMD finewine driver performance increase, these cards will be a solid purchase then.

    If they are games, why don't they use the card properly like Strange Brigade does?
