Not to bad, wonder what local pricing would be.

Pricing looks OK, multiply those prices by 1.5 to get to ZAR

If you're in Sweden check out Inet.se prices. I tend to find them a wee bit cheaper now and then.

Hmm someone local was advertising Sapphire stock, can't remember who anymore. RockinIT? Can't remember now. Looked damn good compared to VEGA but I dunno how they actually perform.

Edit:
It was @RebelTech

I’d take all performance figures with a grain of salt as both the graphics cards and CPUs are showing signs of poor driver and system optimization.

LTT just launched a video about it saying that Windows is holding back Ryzen because it can’t handle the new chiplet layout.

I expect that if AMD wants to keep the masses happy, they need to launch a new series of properly tested drivers really soon.

I’ll be getting an AMD 3700X in 6 months time when 1) prices have dropped and 2) drivers and Windows are better optimized.

Was considering getting one from amazon. The 5700 xt amounted to ±R6400 to my door. Not bad, but yes, still very fresh so real world results (more benchmarks) will need to convince me.

Well makes sense, the latency between the chiplets is a massive performance hit sharing data between them. So if the OS can avoid it as much as possible then that's definitely a good optimisation.

At the moment, AMD is largely equal to Intel in performance.

Given a few patches and some time and it’ll pull out a nice lead.
AMD already has sufficiently more granularity in its frequency adjustments over Intel, allowing for 25 MHz differences rather than 100 MHz differences, however enabling a faster ramp-to-load frequency jump is going to help AMD when it comes to very burst-driven workloads, such as WebXPRT (Intel’s favorite for this sort of demonstration). According to AMD, the way that this has been implemented with Zen 2 will require BIOS updates as well as moving to the Windows May 10th update, but it will reduce frequency ramping from ~30 milliseconds on Zen to ~1-2 milliseconds on Zen 2. It should be noted that this is much faster than the numbers Intel tends to provide.

The technical name for AMD’s implementation involves CPPC2, or Collaborative Power Performance Control 2, and AMD’s metrics state that this can increase burst workloads and also application loading. AMD cites a +6% performance gain in application launch times using PCMark10’s app launch sub-test.

@JollyJamma so what you saying is don't buy it? For R6200 from amazon its starting to appeal to me even more. Convince me to/not to, taking into consideration all of the above?

Also saw some 5700xt/2070(super)/1080ti benches and seems all the more appealing...

I’m saying think before you order. The product will improve but do you want to go through that?

They talk about the 5000 series GPU's here a bit.
