Great price to performance

Pros: -Silent while idle, fans don't spin unless they need too.
-Quieter than my RX560 which only had one fan.
-Sturdy design, does not flex at all and hangs perfectly straight (no sag)
-Performs great (may update with some benchmark numbers, but I'd say mine performs the same as any of the stock benches you can find online)
-Still fast even if you don't undervolt/overclock it. I'm still a bit new to the PC building scene and I don't feel comfortable doing so yet so I'm glad an OC isn't necessary.
-Great value, if you are looking at any of the RX cards and have the PSU to support it this card is a good option because it offers a lot more performance at only 80$ more than the cheapest rx 590.

Cons: -Card is huge, I'm glad I measured before I bought it. Might cover SATA ports on some motherboards, it did on my micro ATX board.

Overall Review: Was looking for an upgrade to my RX 560, and was eying the RX 590 when I noticed this Vega 56 was dropping in price regularly. I'm glad I decided to wait, once it was on sale for 300$ I had to snap it up. I'm glad I avoided that buyers regret with the RX 590.

System it went into:
Gigabyte AB350M-DS3H Micro ATX X370
Ryzen 7 2700x
ADATA 32 GBs DDR4 3200
Replaced RX 560 4GB

This thing does all the things the reviews say and then some. It slotted right into my system after a PSU upgrade (you'll want over 650 watts to play it safe) and after updating drivers and being reminded that my old tv was 59hz not 60hz (overscan issue with older flat panel tvs not the cards fault) It works great! I would recommend anyone that is planning to upgrade their GPU to hold out and save for one of these, especially since the new 5700XT launch should drive the price down even further.

Great Card with no Issues

Pros: Performance is good for the price I got it at ($400 At the time). I end up getting an average 105fps on BF4 with max settings and PUBG with 80-85 on max as well.

Cons: Not a con for me, but this a big and hefty card. Just keep in mind that you'd have to make sure that it's secure and that it will fit your case as the card's over a foot long

Overall Review: As some reviewers have said, there are two switches on the side of the card. The one furthest from the Red Dragon logo turns on a build-in turbo, the one closest to it turns on a red LED behind the logo. Figure I'd mention it because the manual doesn't.

best sub $300 card on the market!!!

Pros: I got this card on sale for 299 with 2 games from Amd (both of which I wanted). And when you consider that i was going to get the games regardless, the dollar per frame flies into the cant afford to pass it up arena.
I’m running a ryzen 1800x and this card was purchased to replace my Rx 480. Once I installed it, I was immediately happy with the results. I can finally run AAA Games at 1440p in ultra mode with 60+ FPS. This card is an amazing deal without a sale or games, But if you can get either or both then this card is a no brainer.

Cons: Very long card so clearance may be an issue for smaller cases.

Overall Review: Love it!

Great GPU

Pros: Price, Speed and overclocking, great looks and red LED, Cooling, AMD Driver Support, shipping fast thanks newegg, almost silent while playing casual online games like world of tanks at ultra 1080p 60fps

Cons: It is very long and big card, Requires a very good power supply to operate without problems, i recommend 80 gold psu with 700+ watts and dual 12v rails for best possible stable overclocks

Overall Review: Compared to my RX480 8gb red devil this card packs alot more power and potential
I ordered this card as for 1080p premium gaming as i want to play games at ultra high settings and never look back ..... The difference is almost 100% more performance in some cases and its alot more quiter while gaming with WOT
HBCC can make your dedicated gpu memory up to 24GB if needed and i have 16gb selected for the card now and this increased the smoothness and game fluidly
Card came with samsung HBM memory so it was flashable to Vega 64 for more HBM overclocking
Current stable settings are p7 1630mhz (realspeed is 1580-1600mhz depending on temprature) @ 1075mv , p6 @ 1050mv
Hbm floor voltage 1050mv , speed @ 1075mhz
Card is power hungry getting 200watts+ is pretty easy to go over 250w on this card if you are not carefull and you might need better cooling in your pc or increase your fans airflow capacity
The card plays assassins creed odessy at ultra settings at 1080p with 55FPS average , metro exudos ultra 1080p at 56fps average and it can do 23k+ on firestrike , 4500points superposition 1080p extreme
This makes it faster than an rtx2060 6gb as this card considered its true rival but with the oc i did the card is alot better and cheaper !

It's a beast (in a very good way)

Pros: This card is fast, quiet, and runs all my games with no issues. Build quality is excellent, the card looks great, and Free -Synch works as advertised.

Cons: It is a big card so make sure you have the required space in your case. Also, PowerColor recommends a minimum 650 watt power but go with a 750.

Overall Review: I liked this card so much, I purchased a second one.

WHAT AN AWESOME card !!!!!!

Pros: i bought two of these cards to finish my gaming system build, and after many trials, setting changes, finally chatting with AMD community, and getting crossfire setup with this graphics cards works AWESOME. I have played many games without overclocking and getting HUGE performance. I downloaded and played "Generation Zero" from steam, and I am playing the game at 105 FPS. Everything is crisp, clear, and all the environment looks incredible. No issues at all.

(4-24-19) Update: After a couple of weeks of use, I am now playing the game "Division 2 " and the graphics are incredible. Current game is running around 80 to 90 frames / sec. No lag, no screen tearing, no frame freezing, nothing at all. I have still not over-clocked the cards. The game is awesome, smooth, and the in-game enviroment looks so life like. I finally have a gaming PC I am soo proud of. Thanks AMD, So long Intel / Nvidia.

Cons: So far as of this date 4-9-19 there is no issues at all
The only issue was getting crossfire set up properly, which had nothing to do with the cards.

Overall Review: I would recommend getting this card for your system. Its a solid card(s) not noisy at all, and the performance, like said before is incredible.
