Note that alternately it's available on:
  • newegg.com for $399.99 - $8 w/ promo code VGAPCGBJU32, but this is more of a comparison and point that you want to get it through their eBay store for less. And for free shipping and returns.
  • amazon.com and bhphotovideo.com for $409.99

edit: performance comparisons... see Tom's Hardware hierarchy list [tomshardware.com].
  • The closest cards in performance are the Titan X, 1080 Ti, and 2070, and none of those will sell for this price. The next step down is the non-XT 5700, which also has its supply chain issues.

Good price, driver issues still scare me with this gpu. Numerous complaints of black screens, shutdowns, etc. Any idea's if these have been corrected? Or if it's still hit or miss. $370 is still a gamble for great performance...when it works..

Same reason I won't even touch an amd GPU, no matter the savings. Got burned too many times in the past but them too, with GPU lack of support after like 1 yr.

Ryzen however is a beast Smilie

This price point for 2nd fastest AMD is incredible... great deal if you need an AMD card today. I am patiently waiting for Black Friday.

I RMA'd my Strix 5700XT twice due to the same issues. Asus finally agreed to exchange the cheapest RTX 2070 Super. Happily married ever since.

I just bought this card on this deal. I did so with the feedback from others on different sites that recently it looks like those have been resolved. I would hope so.

The strix from Asus had a design flaw... that has nothing to do with the actual gpu. Asus messed up not AMD. Just like the msi cards that overheat. People are blaming the wrong company. I've got about 3 or four of the last 5 generation of AMD cards.. no black screen issue whatsoever.

I'm currently running the 5600xt and 5700xt in my rigs and 2 Vegas 64s in my render rig and the Mrs. PC, no black screens. the black screen issue could also be a crappy hdmi/dp cable.

Nope. Not at all. I bought one last time this deal popped up. It's fast but buggy. Blackscreens ruined it for me. Tried different drivers but no success. Had to return it and bought 2070 super instead. Its more expensive but no bs crashes and blackscreens.

Would love to do a AMD cpu + AMD Gpu, but I'm not a beta tester, and if you haven't finished fixing major issues by now I have no hope. I wish those luck who wish to risk it because its benchmark/price is amazing but i don't want to cross fingers every time.

Could we just return it if we run into issues? Does anyone have experience returning GPUs to newegg?

Newegg sucks. Buying from ebay+paypal helps mitigate that. But yes, NE sucks.

Ive owned the gigabyte r9 390 for 3 years without issues. There where 2 times where amd driver software was corrupted and after a clean driver install, everything worked great again. I trust gigabyte's take on any amd graphics card, they do good work.

Nvidia has just about the same amount of bugs as well. The complaints on reddit are just as bad. People need to just buy and purchase with confidence. No 2 systems are alike. I have both Nvidia/AMD gpu systems in my household and no issue with any of them.
