    Pretty cool - guess it depends on what the price is. My bet is $500 or more.

    Lol $699.

    Pay Attention to the moment when the DEVISION 2 dev talks about "Will support All the new Technologies of" and Lisa stop's Him! I think she was making sure he will not spell the secret - I think AMD is preparing their own RayTracing!

    16GB HBM2 and 1T bandwidth, I think it's good price, there are many content creators that 11GB of Vram is not enough and now they can get 16GB GPU at 2080 Performance and 100$ less.

    Ouch AMD... $699.... Why so expensive? :'(

    Ah, 16GB HBM, yep that'll keep it expensive... but still better value than RTX 2080 at least (won't be surprised that nVidia will be able to casually drop their prices).

    Great price, great specs. Now we need some info about new technologies like Ray Tracing and AI capabilites, like RTX and DLSS.

    They are recouping failed instinct MI60's that didn't make the MI50 cut I guess.

    Not that good price but if it beats 2080 that would be great.

    Yeah, it's the same price as a RTX 2080. I was hoping it would be a bit cheaper to help bring prices down. Oh well.

    Don't think it's going to beat 2080, looks like it will be similar performance, given they're quoting 4k performance (where traditionally, GCN has often shown to be better at high resolutions due to memory bandwidth being available) compared to 1440p and 1080p which I reckon it will be the same or under 2080.

    Real life tech terms, it is a better gamble to take Radeon. You don't pay for tensor and RT cores you usually won't use.

    Seems like a good deal for productivity but not a major deal for gaming.

    Vega at 1800mhz (imagine 2ghz) would be very strong. That 16GB HBM2 looks sweet.

    Yes, it totally makes sense to not purchase and benefit the future technologies. Totally better idea to continue to spend money on outdated tech thats going nowhere......

    Stated price is already cheaper than 2080ti with 11gb. I'd have no issues with one, or a pair of these cards..
