Yeah, cooler is crappy, drivers and not perfect, but what I didn't like is saying AMD doesn't have RT, so buy 2060. Who would use RT on a 2060 and lose half the frames?! And channels like Digital Foundry never pointed out NV doesn't have a-syn compute back in the day.

But it's clearly Nvidia's fault that AMD made a product that is worse than theirs!

Buying either RTX 2060 is asinine now. RTX 2060 Super is a better buy than RTX 2060 until you look at RTX 2070 non-Super which has dropped to around RTX 2060 Super. RTX 2060 Super still has extra frame buffer for non-realtime raytracing : i.e. rendering purposes such as Octane.

Redshift is going to gain proper support for NVIDIA's RT core in a future release, but even right now, RTX cards deliver very impressive performance, with the RTX 2080 surpassing TITAN Xp, and the 2080 Ti yet again sitting comfortably on top.

That's why AMD needed to price their cards at GTX 1660 Ti through RTX 2060 level. Instead they "jebaited" Nvidia

I am fairly certain if the RX 5700 was $299 (above GTX 1660 Ti which doesn't have RTX) and RX 5700 XT was $379 both would be selling better as the custom cards would have ~10% leeway to price their custom coolers , instead of having them at $350 and $400. RTX 2070 Super is essentially RTX 2080 for $500; RTX 2060 Super is essentially RTX 2070 for $400. Power delivery is decent enough that the cheapest of RX 5700 series should be adequate if all they did was use reference board and add a half decent cooler while keeping warranty (unlike changing the cooler yourself).

What is probably going to end up happening is that all the AMD exclusive partners will have to make more effort than the AMD+Nvidia ones. For example, ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte can also copy coolers from their RTX 2080 series and put them on the RX 5700 series. They've done it before which is why die contact is poorer sometimes.

With ASUS announcing a September timeframe and MSI Launching a new EVOKE line for AMD, I would say wait for Sapphire Nitro. Sapphire was the only one to do Vega 56/Vega64 really properly. In its current state the best bet is an Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo III for ~$50 as it allows you to RMA (there's no thermal adhesive unlike the II).

AIBs have room because their boards are usually more stripped down. If you look at reference AMD GPUs they have a lot of traces what are remanence of eng boards.

The Navi reviews are weird? Why? Let's get one thing out of the way: AMD's Navi architecture is not as exciting as Zen 2, it simply isn't, I don't understand how Good Old Gamer can say the exact opposite, he just needs to look at the stats to know the facts. Moore's Law is Dead also doesn't understand or pretends not to, that Navi's 2.0 die size with ray tracing hardware will also be bigger, but instead prefers to convey that Turing on 7nm would still be bigger than Navi. And he makes a bunch of false claims, like Fermi was not as good as AMD's GPU arch of the time, it's false, the GTX 480 just had a terrible cooler, just like the 290X. When AMD had to catch up to Fermi 1.1 (aka GTX 580), AMD's power efficiency with the HD 6970 also went out of the door, and the GTX 580 was the fastest card of its generation, with a 244w TDP vs 250w TDP of the HD 6970. And come on, the Phenom II was a good deal, especially Thuban, but it didn't have the same performance as Intel.
Didn't even bother watching the videos but they said Fermi was not good? Guess they don't know about Fermi's achievement training AlexNet on two mighty GTX 580s.
