AMD suggestion compared to 2080 super

OccuredClown

Looking for an AMD that has around the same power as a 2080 super. Trying to make the most out of my MSI monitors for AMD to freesync, or should I stick with the 2080, heard AMD can heat too quick. Will be gaming and streaming videos for work at same time. (HOPEFULLY)

Prefure to stay under 1000$ CAD for GPU

AMD doesn't currently have anything as capable as a RTX 2070 Super on average.

Also Freesync works over Display Port connection with NVidia cards.

AMD's newest 5700XT is at about or a bit better than RTX2070. Or, if you can find an older Radeon VII, that is at about the RTX2080 (non-Super) level performance. So far AMD has nothing that is as capable as theRTX2080 Super.

Would the XT be able to play a game Civ 6 and stream movies both at 1440?

I found this: https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/software/civilization_vi_pc_performance_review/9

Not sure if the requirements were the same, but even a 1060 did over 70fps, so a 1660S would be even higher.

thus, the 5700XT should be close to the 1080FE.

Civ 6 is a more CPU bound title than GPU.
