I would like to build an all AMD rig sometime this winter, my last build was a AMD Athlon and ATI Radeon 9700. yea its been a while.
A Vega 56 would probably more than meet my needs and a cheap open source free-sink monitor down the road would be a bonus.
But i am having a hard time choking down the $100 premium over a comparably performing 1070.
I wont have the budget for a RTX card but i am hoping that a new leader at the top will suppress pricing downstream? AMD does not have an answer this year or the next to the RTX. surly that means they will have to compete with value?
I cant buy yet but I am watching the market, whats your prediction? when should we see the biggest price drops? after new years? or black friday? other?
