I am waiting for Navi to see how it performs and the price. I will maybe do what I did for my 2nd hack, a dual boot with a powerful Nvidia card and a mid range card for MacOS. Wait and see until next MacOS release.
Good strategy!

My only problem is I’m pretty much tied to one GPU only since I am totally into ITX cases and small form factor builds.

(Not into the iGPU thing personally - like MacOS to have a bit more to work with)

I have a Radeon VII with an i9-9900K and it has been excellent, especially compared to my RX580. Solid construction, and performance. There is always opinions of new technology but I am looking forward to 10.14.5 and using this GPU.

So how often are you having to listen to the fans on yours?

Do you hear it even at idle just doing normal browsing/office/email stuff?
Just trying to get a sense of it - thank you!
No, I have a RX580 which was louder with daily life use than this one.
