    ^^ I understand your point other than thinking the average user is spending $500-600 for a gpu.

    Not the average, but the 300$ dollar marke is well defined so is the around 400$ as today, we have new cards from both ends.

    I agree, it will cost 700$ because it will be as fast as 2080. They will might charge a bit extra if they beat 2080 in raytracing with considerable margin...

    I had crossfire 5870's in my 10yr old rig... Playing Battlefield 3 was almost too easy (but it did have a mild stutter). RX 5700XT FTW!

    I have waited for AMD with my CPU (From FX8300 to R5 3600 - what a JUMP) and I will wait for them with my GFX card as well.
    I was scoping the rx 5700 XT but my 2nd hand GTX970 still holds, I was able to play all games I wanted to play in 60 fps and high settings - enough for me.

    So I will indeed wait for the new guns from both parties, but I want to have a AMD rig and I want to support the underdog and a company I like. Its almost certain they will offer better bang for a buck, as usually.

    Maybe finally the twisted GFX cards market will offer something for me.

    Oh my... It really sounded logical, and promising - but looks like fake news / clickbait / whatever. So AMD fanboys and girls (me included :D)
    can calm down...
    AFOX denied they have to do with the filing of this (import) certificate at EEC, but it was their russian import partner. They probably
    just wanted to spare some cash on (future) paperwork, and included non-existing (future) products that might never be produced.

    Source (he knows them personally, and asked for a statement) - is in german, but the statement itself is english:
    https://www.igorslab.de/falsche-new...-xt-und-5950-xt-im-umlauf-nachfrage-bei-afox/

    But hope is still there that big navi comes soon... so don't shoot me for the bad news. :rolleyes:
