Dasa 2080 Super wasn't available at the time I purchased the Radeon VII.
On water the R7 is faster than 2080 and competitive with the more expensive overclocked 2080 Super at 3440x1440.
Putting it on water didn't cost me anything since I used a 16y old CPU block making it easily the best value option for gaming available to me that was a decent upgrade over the 1070.

The premium for the better heatsink on the RTX card is worth it for many.
At launch sure, I even said it was the better card for gamers - and at the same price point I'd agree even now. But for $100-$200 less and all the benefits the card has otherwise..? Yea, I'll deal with the less then amazing cooler. I lived with reference blower cards just fine. I also use headphones so couldn't really care less either way.

At $699 the 2080 or 2080S isn't worth the premium and you may as well just grab a 2070 Super.

skline00 thomasck, glad to hear you got it working.

My 3900x/Rad VII combo is fun. Not as fast as the 9900k/2080TI rig but what is at this stage?

thomasck Well guys, I hope I'm not wrong about this, but I need to confess something. This whole time complaining about 2020 drivers, and some 19.x.x drivers were all my fault. From the whole time being using the RVII I was always saying the only drivers not crashing were 19.5.2, 19.7.5 and 19.11.3. And was true.

I've tried the 2020 a bunch of times and well, crashes after crashes even with the card running stock clocks and voltage.

But few days ago I've ran ramtest/karhu and after one hour and half it had found an error, and I correlated that with my crashes in games straight away.
Note that none of the others ram testers ever catched any errors, hci, tm5, memtest etc. So I upped the ram voltage by couple of notches, from 1.450 to 1.465, ddued gpu and chipset drivers and well, one, two, three matches of codmw/bf5 and zero crashes. Applied my usual oc, 1950/1025/1118mV and no crashes either. Then I did overwrite that oc with 1965/1025/1118mV which used to crash here and there, two more days playing and also, no crashes!
20.4.1 has been released two days ago, ddued 20.3.1, installed 20.4.1, went straight to 1965/1025/1118mV (which is the stock voltage) and not a single crash so far in two days using 20.4.1.
I just hope this is not a coincidence, or nor the card taking a piss at me again being fully stable for some time and then letting me down like before.

duox7142 The RMA Radeon VII is going strong still! So it really does turn out, I had a bad Radeon VII. I'm still convinced it was memory issues because it tended to fail more when assets loaded in or out. I purchased the EK waterblock, and soon I will do a whole system loop with 2x360 rads in the Lian Li O11. Going to do some "before" measurements now.

Really nice. Its true a great card when it comes to performance at 4k and i am not going to replace it anytime soon.

The "but" part is that i clearly had to go for watercooling and that my system can handle that card with rather old 19.5.2 driver...
