    I'm a big fan of white/red/black (and the shades in between) and minimalist look. So from these aesthetic points of view at least, the reference cooler does look pretty damn good.

    Also waiting for the review :)
    Can't stop wandering why PCB is so long
    While a 3-fans solution may be needed for the ~300W dissipation, tt seems AMD could have optimize it a bit... :rolleyes:

    AMD really has some nice reference designs, and it looks like the pattern continues!

    Both cu and shaders amount, it is 6.67% more. If it is more efficient clock wise it could give us at least ~13.34% more performance.

    It will be no way near the performance gap between 2080ti vs 2080, or 2080 vs 2060.

    I don't think it is bad, but at what cost. It is a bit hard for an already expensive gpu. But I accept it as long as it cost less than 2080ti.

    Yeah exactly my thought. Even though the 1080's vram speed is like 1/3rd of the VII, but CUDA is also a factor.. that thing is pretty fast for exporting.

    What is that caked on the GPU, HBM and the mating surface of the heatsink? Caviar? It looks like something that should have "CAUTION: REMOVE BEFORE USE" written on it.

    Also, I very much hope you did your thermal testing before disturbing whatever it was.

    is it a breach of NDA if you share the length of the card? Or just if it's under or over 280mm :D

    What is that sticker on photo 14? At the bracket which keeps pressure over the GPU. Warranty void sticker?

    Awesome, so identical to the 2080 FE. Thank you both, will wait for the benchmarks to decide between selling the 2080 + EK waterblock and buying the VII, or adding the 2080 to the custom loop :)

    Like the trend toward more simple looking shrouds. Sick of putting batmobiles inside my PC.

    Looking forward to the reviews of this...even if it's just to see any AMD card being put up against nVidia's high end again for a change. :eek:

    I expect that too. Still, if its equal or slightly better than the 2080, I'll bet there will not be enough to go around and may be out of stock more often than not. In which case Nvidia will grin and bump their prices back up.

    Considering the RTX line hasn't sold as well as Mr. Leather Jacket expected, they might indeed take this opportunity to drop the prices. Otherwise I wouldn't expect it.

    And hats off to AMD because you see all those VRMS with the [+] sign on well they are all very high end like you'd find on a 2080ti Lightning Z or HOF cards. Apparently they are the best and most expensive.

    It also could be that OC'd this thing needs a lot of juice hence needing better vrm power phases/switches.

    Why would Nvidia drop the 2080 price if the Radeon VII matches it while costing exactly the same? Makes no sense.
