Persoannly, the radeon 7 was a rush to stop gap the rtx release until navi came out. Also remember (whilst not a great move on amd’s side) that the review cards are mostly running on a review testers driver and not a finished consumer release driver.
Personally I’ve had very stable run with and over the past 4-5 years with my 7970 which performed admirably. Only latest drivers were causing issues that I updated too over the last month.
But horses for courses. Depends on the way the game is coded. Radeon 7 performs worse and sometimes better than rtx 2080. Some games like hit man an it surpassed 2080ti. It’s a powerful card, no doubt about it.
However, at that price, I am not sure I would buy it. Right now, there isn’t much need for the 16 gig or ram. It doesn’t have rtx (not that anyone is really using it anyway–and hence don’t buy a card just for that) and dlss may or may not be added in the future?
So currently, I am not against getting the card for what the card is, but the price for what you can use it for is a limiting factor.
I just picked up a rtx 2080 on a steal because it was a great offer, and I expect the rtx prices to come down more soon
