    I've got to say, I was a little disappointed with the figures, I feel AMD have chucked this out knowing it'll sell regardless and they're not trying any more. If anything this is a mid-tier card, not a high end one, but all this pales into insignificance when you factor in the realisation that there isn't a cat in hells chance of owning one of these cards anyway. RRP is meaningless, and the ones that do hit stores will be 3 times the price, which is just stupid.

    The way crypto is damaging the PC market now is very concerning. I honestly can't wait for America to ban them, so things in the PC world can return to normality and both Nvidia and ATI can do better. Only then can we can get hold of these cards to use them for what they are designed for.

    As far as a card goes it is very good. I agree with you about pricing but there's nothing the manufacturers can do about that.

    I'll worry about new GPUs when availability actually happens. It's kind of sad that I'm now almost kicking myself for not buying a 3090 when they were going for only a 10% markup. They're now 100%+ markup, when you can even find one in stock here.

    Exactly. Comapre it to any other GPU and it looks like a cheap Wish knockoff...

    Yet it is still a 1kg cooler that is bigger than 2 slots and keeps the card much cooler than the 5700XT Red Devil...

    I blame the "chrome" rings for making it look like a toy.

    I thought it looked fairly unobtrusive, especially if the blue lights can be turned off. Perfectly fine for anyone who is not wanting to look at the insides of their computer.

    I tried to picture this card in my rig..and I just couldn't. There was this blank space where a GPU should be..
