    Asus is so overpriced it hurts.
    I'm going to switch brands for sure.

    Maybe at high end. I didnt notice Asus is more expensive than MSI or Gigabyte in mid range.

    Sapphire Radeon RX570 NITRO+ 4GB: 216.40€
    Asus Radeon RX 570 ROG STRIX OC 4GB: 248.90€

    Paying 32.5€ more for the same thing and I can't see why.

    It's still soon and prices are all over the place but generally Asus is more expensive here. The RX580 is 325.90€ :banana:

    STRIX cards carry a premium. I'd get Sapphire over any other brand if I were buying AMD.

    Indeed.

    This is my third Sapphire card in a row and nothing to complain. I would probably go with them again.

    Anyway, isnt there a cheaper version of Asus cards not only Rog/Strix?

    There is but it's not as efficient at cooling. Considering how much power these refreshes use I wouldn't want the lower end cooler. It only has one normal size heat pipe and two smaller ones on core and not much on the VRM's. At least that was how it was on the 1060 I put in a friends build 6 months ago.
