I'm so confused by this... if anything this thing is pretty much consistently on par with a 390.. and in cases better. The fact that it just released and has wonky performance issues that can be sorted out there is clearly a lot of potential in this card...
And if I was in the market for a card, no I would not consider a 970, 980 or 290/290x/390/390x at this point over this.
AIB's will be the obvious choice.
Shame about the reference cards... I actually typically prefer blower cards just to dump the heat out and this is the best looking blower card AMD has released IMO. Better power delivery and beefier heatsink would have been nice out of the gate but oh well.Edited by SoloCamo - 7/1/16 at 11:29am
