    Not sure what you're so excited about. Games @ 12 fps or 8k screens too small to make out any difference vs 4k.

    When can we expect benchmarks to pop up? Doubt i will be getting this card next time i upgrade to a system that can handle 4k. But if the numbers are ok i dont see much reasons to go for nvidia. Do not want support that company unless i have to, so maybe ill even jump over this gen if my gtx1080 can keep up... Really want a gpu that can handle 4k better than my current card tho, so tough choice. :p

    I think its hilarious that there are AMD and Nvidia lovers out there. I laugh when an Nvidia person replies and when a AMD person replies. Common guys grow up were letting them use us to make tons of money off of us . Why don't we not buy anything until they drop the prices to a decent price instead of gauging us for these cards that cost pennies on the dollar to make. We as humans are dumb ...

    Doubt they can drop prices much, esp in case of Vega VII. RTX with massive dies are also not cheap to make. This argument may have been more relevant to past GPU lines. With todays high end, both Nividia and AMD seem to have their balls in a vice on pricing vs cost of manufacture.

    What? It's not wrong to have brand loyalty.

    that's an encouraging result But what would have made it a great result is if the card was 100 dollars cheaper that would have offset the extra power draw and the fact it is not quite as fast.
    I cant wait to see hat it does under water :)

    Don't know if it has been already asked, but when does the NDA embargo ends?

    Forget it, just saw the earlier messages now. Waiting for the review! :)

    Just got listed in Romania, for 900 E, with availability in 26 days. This is once again a lame move from AMD. I'm sorry to say it , being a ryzen user. Over, and , out !

    I am betting that this card gonna do 2100Mhz core!, then we gonna see good battle for $$$ vs 2080/2080TI.
    Since if MI60 can do 1800Mhz 24/7 for Years as professional GPU then there must be room for OCing with 60CU.
