    How would this compare to a Nvidia 970?

          The AMD cards come with 3 free games. If you don't plan to play any of them, you should have a giveaway for them.

            I haven't regularly played any games in a decade+, only benchmark them.

              Well the must surprising that Michael when tested all this hardware doesn't have any hang up with the kernel using amdgpu, and doing serveral benchmark. So far I just testing any benchmark make my system to gpu reset freezing all the machine.

                This card, for $280, is DOA. A RX 580 is $200 right now and this is barely 10% better. In some games is only 3% better.

                AMD better sell it for a discount fast if they didn't it to flop at launch.

                  The supposed 12nm process is actually 14nm. This is a rename of a rename: even the production process is a rename!
                  When the chip will be measure you'll see it's the exact same size of the predecessors.

                    I was considering the RX 590, until the rumors of its price. I was hoping it would come in at $230, lower the price for the RX 580. This then made me on the hunt for a RX 580 which I was able to pick up a used one for $130. No regrets there.
