Nice to finally have some competition back in the market.

yeah AMD is definitely the overall winner on price/performance ratio these days. unfortunately the current gen AMD GPUs are fantastic for cryptocurrency mining, so thanks to the etherium craze these GPUs are all massively overpriced right now. if you can find a rx580 right now, it probably costs about the same as a gtx1070 (a card that will completely destroy it for gaming purposes).

AMD has their vega generation cards coming out within the next month, supposedly those will be able to compete with the highest end nvidia cards... supposedly.
