    ...again i've spent three hours of gaming on a Radeon VII and i own a gtx 1080ti

    and on the same games with the same cpu (i have better cooling on the system w gtx1080ti on custom loop) the Radeon VII outperforms my 1080ti on the same games - both Nvidia and AMD games.
    and by over 5% in the worst case.

    i will buy one but HH will probably have one tested before mine gets ordered.
    just wait

    I would hope so, seeing as it costs a fair bit more
     
  3. $699? AMD won't confirm it beats a 2080 across minimal fps when gaming? PCIe 4.0 support/No, Infinity Link support/No, Prosumer Drivers/Unconfirmed..

    *sigh*

    :rolleyes:

    AMD was such a nothing burger this CES

    I'll bet there will be an 8gb version as well. Would be silly to offer it with only 16gb.

    I agree. I'm sure it'd cost about $200 less too, while having pretty much the same performance in most games.

    Seems to be a "re-purposed" MI50 card. While we can't know, I doubt they'll spend too much time on it. Focus will most likely go towards Navi.

    Its also proly why the price tag is so high. It costs a ton to make.
    Purely for its gaming performance, 399$ would've been the sweet spot for this. Considering you can buy a Vega64 for ~300$. But that would've required more stripping down of the Mi50 to make it much cheaper to produce.

    Even $100-150 less, it would still be a killer card for the money.

    Nice card also ruined by an high price... Is this the future of PC gaming, with parts getting more expensive each generation :(

    Why do you focus on WII so much? The 2080 can barely beat the 1080ti in most games at 2k. We are talking about under 10 frames in most games.

    Will be interesting but well we are in a place currently that won't see cheaper gpus for a while at least. Maybe in 2020.

    I have to wonder if they will also release a Radeon VII that is the same GPU, but with 8GB of HBM2 instead of 16 GB, perhaps for $100 less or so? I think that would sell very well, since (currently at least) 8GB is enough for gaming. I would probably go for the full 16 GB HBM2, but that's for non gaming purposes in my case.

    Considering they had to use the same TDP (300) for this new 7nm(!) card, it's pretty obvious this is a swan song for GCN architecture. It's just a juiced up, factory OCed vega on steroids, nothing more. A temporary solution until Navi is ready.

    The good thing is you can sell the 3 games bundled with V2 thus essentially getting the card for a lower price than 2080.

    All I gathered this far is that I'll still be on my 1080Ti for at least another year. While I'm glad that there's some sort of competition back, the price/performance ratio for this card is worse than I (and probably many) expected. But I guess it was wishful thinking from the start. :oops:

    At least you got a 1080TI. I really regret not buying a 1080 when i built my new PC in 2017. The 1080 was only 100$ CAD more than the 1070 i bought. But since neither card were bullet proof at 2k120-144 or 4k60 and i planned to buy a new monitor i decided to go for a 1070 for 570$ CAD. Now if i want to upgrade this 1070 to fully exploit my new 2k144Hz monitor (or my 4k60Hz tv when i play from my couch with my controller) i would need to spend over 800$ CAD two years later. This is so ridiculous i just can't believe it. I really regret not buying the 1080. It was lacking a little oomph for 2k144Hz or 4k60Hz but it was not too far.

    Sadly i agree i don't think this card will do anything for us. It's expensive and looks like it will perform like a 1080ti at best so any cheaper version of it wont perform good enough. GPU market is so depressing right now. I'm not a fan of Intel but i wish they will make a great dedicated GPU in 2020 to shake the market a little bit. But historically they overprice their products so ...

    It will beat it for sure. Look at the Strange Brigade result they used in comparing it with the RTX2080 - Vega II was so much faster (Vulkan API). Guess what also uses Vulkan... Wolfenstein.

    They can't match 2080 Ti without using a new architecture. Apparently such architecture is still far in the future. GCN is already too little butter spread on too large a bread. AMD has taken everything imaginable out of it. It just won't stretch anymore.
