Good time to buy a gpu?

I was thinking of getting a radeon 5700xt, but should I instead wait until Nvidia drops their 7nm gpus in mid-2020?

It looks like 2020 will be quite competitive in the GPU market, as amd for once in many years is beating Nvidia in the mid-high end market when it comes to price/performance. And Intel is launching their own GPU. So I'm expecting either big price drops or big performance increases.

    TC or GTFO. Honestly a GPU is only several hundred bucks.

      I guess I'm Too cheap with my money.

      Though, high-end gpus are 1k (2080 ti), fair bit of money if it's going to be obsolete in a year

      ignore the r*ta*ds on blind with their blatant consumerism you are doing good by being cautious with money, that being said the 1080 has been serving me well since before the bitcoin bubble in 2017 and can handle pretty much anything I throw at it while streaming on twitch. until the ps5 is launched i don't see any reason to upgrade

      If you’re buying a high end GPU, it’s always going to be obsolete within a year. Perhaps within 6 months.

      Tell that to the 1080gtx. Took like 3 years before a gpu in the same price range could beat it. The card is still not obsoleted either as the 20 series was a weak upgrade (but definitely expecting it once 7nm gpus are out and consoles are using them)

      And BTW, Ray Tracing in Control is just awesome.

      1k for a gpu that will be obsolete in a year? Seems wasteful
