    PowerColor has become much better with there cooling. I personal prefer Sapphire for AMD, they have the best quality and are very consist.

    I do think the Powercolor Red Devil line has been good.

    I have 6,
    4 are regular Titan V and 2 are 32GB CEO edition.
    I am curious because I have been able to use mine for both research (AI/DL/ML in medical imaging), Nuc Med, and normal home stuffm gaming etc.

    I am able to do mGPU and 4 Way SLI (auto-diff-SLI) as well as compute/cuda

    (I am also the guy that enabled 4 way SLI on the Pascal and RTX series cads and wrote the how-to). My curiosity is based on how rankings are on a comparison. Since the Titan XP was listed, I figured the same class of card from recent releases would be listed.

    Seemed a valid question....

    Here is my personal rig configured using 4 of the cards
    I'll be glad to provide a factual review.

    Asus c621e sage
    2x Xeon 8180M
    768GB of ram LRDIMM
    4x Titan V including Titan V CEO ed 32GB
    960pro nvme (OS)
    10x SSD Raid - 4TB each SSD (Apps and Backup 8x 2x) (40TB)
    1600W PSU (digital) noiseless
    MS 2019 Data Center, Ubuntu
    P1 miniITX case

    That case ... i hope you don't have a cat :D

    You got to realize not everyone have that kind of money at hand for a computer. This workstation is probably in the neighborhood or 40-45 grands in Canada. You're getting dangerously close to the price of a car here ... there's not many use cases for a workstation like that.

    If nVidia doesn't send him the gpu to review i don't think there much point for him to buy one to review it considering that probably only a very tiny portion of the people reading his reviews have the money to buy one.

    I can respect that. I also realize that that list (their card shoot out) is populated by source testing and not outside numbers, which also makes sense. I had assumed the Titan Vs were omitted just because of perception as a pro card only (like quadro). Now I know they were not offered a card to test it makes more sense. I am surprised nvidia would not give Titan Vs or RTX to Guru3d for review - I'b be quite vocal if I was this site.

    No, I don't have a cat, just 7 and 8 year old kids (might be worse)

    Wow, overkill, I don't even know the parts that are included in that rig! I suppose you could send your GPUs to Hilbert for review! (bit late in the day now though probably)

    I feel like I'm hijacking this thread so I will curb it after this.

    no, not overkill if you knew what i use the rig for.

    now back to the 5700 review...

    I think this will be my next card.
    All depends if my friend upgrades to a new card.
    He will give me his XFX Vega 64 silver edition for like $100-$150. That would be an upgrade over my RX 480s.

    It's a breast. Gimme, gimme, gimme. I want the XT version. I really hope these are available in my neck of the woods.

    Is possible that these can be shunt modded the same way that nvidia 10 series cards could be done to bypass the tdp limits?

    Hahaha. Bloody predictive txt. I didn't even notice what I'd written. I would edit it, but i think it's just better left alone.

    Is it better to buy rtx2060s or 5700/5700xt this year? Gpu will be sold next year anyway and rtx 3080 or amd equivalent bought.

    Worried about Amd's high temps. both cpu and gpu...

    5700xt is the best out of three. It offers similiar performance as 2070S and i would not worry about temps.

    Out of those I'd look at the 5700 or an XT model. They are cheaper or the same price but better performing. AMD have said temps are not an issue and i believe them. Also if you are only keeping it for a year, temps wouldn't matter anyway.

    Thanks Hilbert for the review, it was actually lucky they sent you the non XT as this is the first standard 5700 with AIB cooling I have seen, and I am interested in buying the 5700 for my 2560x1600 60Hz Dell 30 inch which still has my old 970 driving it.

    Seems a good card, I will wait for all the 5700's with AIB cooling and see where they all sit price wise after the initial flurry of pricing. Something for Christmas at about equivalent USD of 330-360 region would be fine for me. I am sure prices will come down a bit.

    The temp and power use is not really an issue, but a nice sound level like that would be great, that card is really quiet !

    Once again thanks for putting up the comprehensive review so quickly.

    Well if you're worried about AMD's high temps, you should be even more worried about Intel's high temps o_O

    Temp are not high on this particular card. We are talking about 70 Celsius range while playing games which is easily manageable. I had gpus in the past both from ATI and nVidia running in the 80-90 Celsius range while playing. Don't forget AMD gpus report two temps. The normal one and the hot spot one. I guess anything under 100 Celcius should be fine for the hot spot?
