No longer more expensive than the rx 550 yet still gives you better performance despite its age.

Still holds up. The value dosen't anymore.


Poor

I still have this, but it doesn't get much use. It hasn't aged very well. I wish I had bought an AMD Radeon HD 7970 instead of the GTX 680 back in the day.

My first serious GPU, so rating is biased. But it performs well even though old and a little expensive.
