I’m picking between a vega 56 or 1070ti, the vega 56 strip of edition is £10 cheaper that the asus Cerberus 1070ti. I’ve been stuck between the two for awhile, however freesync has been a persuading factor for awhile now, they’re similar in performance with 1070ti generally winning overall but it’s back and forth in games based on benchmarks. However the new AMD coming in 2019 introduces memory timing over locking, auto undervolting and auto overclocking, with a huge range of practical and QoL changes to the Radeon software. So what I’m wondering is whether the vega 56 is becoming more and more of the better choice? And whether I should buy it instead of the 1070ti for £10 less?

If you have a Free-sync Monitor or have the intention to buy one, the Vega 56 is the way to go for using the Monitors feature.

And you could save up a bit, and get a Vega 64! :)

Take the promotional videos for what they are AMD paid advertisements of features.

If you plan to replace your monitor then going AMD makes more sense since both AMD and Intel are supporting the same adaptive sync tech.

If you are not replacing the monitor then the 56 for a little cheaper gives you a little less performance at a higher power draw even after the newer features.

I am a rx 580 user and the new software does not have the automatic features for me besides memory. For me though the fan curve setting alone is valuable. I can now finally stop using Afterburner altogether.
