I use this machine for deep learning as it is part of my research.

It works exquisitely well. I currently have it connected to three monitors (will eventually upgrade to 5 monitors total).

Since I can game on it, I decided to sell my PS4 and strictly game on this machine. I currently play Insurgency: Sandstorm with maxed out settings with a cool 60fps.

I also am re-playing the Mass Effect Trilogy with the latest upgraded texture mods and it looks beautiful.

The only problem I faced was finding the wire that connects the front USB ports to the motherboard. I worked around this by just buying USB extension cables and using the ports in the back.

The BIOS also displays a much higher temperature for the CPU than the utilities I use such as the Threadripper's Ryzen Master, and CAM.

CAM doesn't display fan speed for the GPU, but I suppose that's more of a software issue.

in my opinion you should have gotten a vega 7 which preforms just as good in games as a 2080 but out preforms it in work task which it seems like your doing.

The RTX line is meant for deep learning though.

Incorrect actually the other way around. Rtx is more toward gamers with less vram and higher clocks. Vega 7 have 16gb hbm2 memory which is clocked higher than gddr6 and also more memory for work task (like deep learning) will 100% help oht with what your re doing.

Nah buddy. The RTX's have 16bit fp operations and tensor cores specifically designed for deep learning. The only 'gaming' feature is the ray-tracing which isn't widely implemented be devs yet. AMD gpu's don't have CUDA/CUDNN which 99% of the SOTA DL algorithms use.
