    Yes anyone who actually buys one of these will be able to turn it around instantly for a $200 + profit if they don't like it because of the miners.

    I am staying with my 2 x Sapphire R9 Furies until at least early 2019. That said, a pair of Vega 56 cards would be really good. :)

    I would either keep it or sell it for current new card price. (absolutely no higher)..I see guys here asking for hundreds of dollars more than than it cost them for the gpus and i have ZERO respect for them. (but thats just me)

    How about people selling a bottle of water for $10, or a gallon of gas for $20 after a hurricane has come through and destroyed all the infrastructure?

    I'm not taking sides in this thread about gpus which are a luxury item anyways. But that just because you can get what you're asking doesn't always mean it's right.

    Funny story. I had two gtx 680 cards I wanted to sell back off when they were still a newer model. I ebay listed them for a discount on what I paid for msrp. 3 days pass and I have nothing sold or even offered. I noticed they were being price hiked by everyone before my initial listing, but I wanted a fast sale. I finally raided my card pricing to the markup others had been doing, and voila, 2 hours later both cards sold.

    I've seen stories of buyers seeing a good deal getting the rug pulled under them by shady sellers, whats a fast sale to you might have me wondering what in god's name happened to the cards that had you sell them so relatively cheap. :p

    I had decided I didn't need that much power for the price, and went to two gtx 670s after. :D

    No. Didn't you hear? AMD Cancelled it to work on a mining card.

    Anyone know if people are going to benchmark Ryzen systems with vega vs a 1080 to see if there is a difference? I remember early on people were saying how the 580 was performing different on ryzen than the nvidia cards were? or was that all just made up stuff? I am curious though to see if amd cpu+vga is different than amd cpu+nvidia benchmark results

    AMD CPU/Mobo won't save this turkey. If anything I'd bet performance would be even worse.

    Yep i remember reading that (nice article btw) just curious if someting like this would happen now at the "higher" end since we have vega 64 instead of a 480

    Where you have the ryzen performing with higher FPS than the 2600 in the 480 system vs the 1060 where it took more of a hit just curious if that trend continues at the high end
