Hi, I would like to know which AMD board is competing with the NVIDIA RTX 2080 for you. Thank you in advance. Greetings.

and with the rx vega 56 you can also play in 4k?
Yes you can. If you can get Vega 64 LC its really good. Also, you can play with HDR monitor on Vega w/ little or no impact on FPS unlike Nvidia pascal.
At 4k you need to turn down some particle effects if you want 60 FPS. If you have Freesync 2 monitor then it'll switch between 40-55 FPS on ultra settings on most games.

Vega 64 is same as 1080. It can't match the performance of 1080Ti. I mean you can certainly go and watch YT videos but I have done the comparison myself on amd and intel rig. I could see the FPS difference.

AMD has not released anything that can compete with 2080 or 2080 Ti.

PS: There are a lot of failure reports of these gpus. (20 series) avoid getting those and wait for acknowledgement from Nvidia. First generation is always full of bugs. Get it when they start production of 2nd gen.

You could go for Asus Rog Strix OC 1080Ti. I am using that beast now and it's a powerhouse!


Correction: Minor changes to quoting card names.

Acc. to Gamers Nexus founders cards are the culprit than 3rd party GPU designs and non-reference cooling and components.

Agreed, I just got a few 1070Ti's from desperate coin miners a few months ago, rock solid, fast.

The jump to the 12nm series hasn't been without issue, also the price increase vs performance increase is flat and arguably, not worth it. I'd get a 1070Ti right now and wait for the 3000 series for your next upgrade after, which should be a significant jump.
