    Just pre-ordered the XT version. Upgrading from an RX 570. I hope it can play older games.

    The 5700 XT Red Devil is total Vapoureware it's not available anywhere in Europe or Australia so a complete joke TBH. I know it's down to the AIB's but AMD can't really afford this kind of screw up. By all accounts there are NO AIB cards available to buy in the UK. Pre-orders are going back to 16/09 WTF. Total clustr**ck if you ask me.

    In my neck of the woods, I'm surprised at the response of the normally nVidia-centric forumers here, many are buying the 5700/5700 XT's. The few shops that do carry them (in the local tech mall here) have had their stock of the cards sold out within a day or two. A popular one is Sapphire cards with the 'Pulse' moniker, some are inquiring about PC 'Red Devil' too, I'm intrigued as well......but with a VEGA64 Red Devil in my rig, I'm holding out for big Navi with hardware capable RT......and it's gotta be a Red Devil.

    Am I missing something ? Am I in cuckoo land ?

    Have warranties crept back from 3yrs to 2yrs?

    I'd quite like to buy an AMD card for a change, but I'm caught in the trap of a Gsync monitor! And I gotta give it at least one more GPU upgrade before I can justify buying a new monitor. AMD aren't that compelling with their products at the moment, I suppose a Freesync monitor is cheaper than a Gsync version, so there is that string to the bow, but Gsync is technically a little better than freesync anyway so it kind of balances out a little. I wanna see what the NVidia 3xxx are gonna be like.

    I get that, sorta like Apple, once you're entrenched in the eco-system, it's kinda hard to move to another. As for myself, I've always tried to support AMD due to their use of open source software, and to some extend, hardware as well. An AMD GPU will never get Gsync support on a Gsync monitor, but Freesync monitors can support Gsync. I have a Freesync monitor in the Acer XR341CK and a Freesync 2 monitor in the LC49HG90DMEXXS, so I guess I can do both AMD and nVidia cards (IF I choose to go that route). Right now, I'm hoping that AMD gets NAVI 21 and 23 right, with robust RT support and at least 2080 Ti level in non-RT games. I'm willing to wait, and my monitors are ever so ready for 'em.:cool:

    What "older games" are you looking to play? I play BF4, DA:O, DA2, TL and TL2 and my FX5700 doesn't appear to be having any issues with them.
