After my 390s, which hit 94c and throttled NO MATTER WHAT, I was really turned off by AMD cards, but thought I would see what the RX 5 series and Vega offered, and it was more of the same. Power hungry, hot, over-clocked previous gen cards with very little improvement. I'll see what Navi is like, but I've really lost hope with AMD.
I loved Hawaii but people didn't understand it. It was designed to run at the target temperature of 95c and it would balance max temp+fanspeed+clock speed. I just don't like the high pitched noise of fans.
