When the pricing was first announced, I mentioned being a bit disappointed with these cards as a potential RX580 / GTX1060 replacement. That hasn’t changed, even after the Day 0 price cut. Also, avoid these factory spec cards like the plague; they are hot and noisy like all blower cards.
Having said that, the GPU itself seems a good step forward, so the board partners cards may turn out to be a good buy. As it stands, the 5700 beats the vanilla 2060, and the 5700XT should match the RTX2070 / 2060 Super. Now it all comes down to pricing again.
