Hey, thank you so much for leaving your second post for other people (like me :D) to find. My trusty 780TI just died and I was looking for a price efficient replacement, since the current high end hardware is not attractive enough to upgrade my whole rig yet.
I’m still running an i7 4770K and the Vega 56 seems to be one of the best options to still improve the whole setup without bottlenecking all too much, while only having minor financial impact compared to Nvidia cards. Main use is a bit of coding, image/video editing, audio production, media ‘consumption’, light gaming and a lot of Blender; Eevee and Cycles rendering included - which is my main concern.
It’s been a few weeks since you posted… Did any issues arise or is everything still running smoothly? Any limitiations compared to the Nvidia experience? Are you running Linux or Windows? Any heavier render tasks you were able to finish?
