    It is interesting that ryzen event is first. One would expect first they gonna show the rdna2 then calm everybody with zen3 if it fails.

    This time hopefully radeon will be just icing on the cake. :)

    So what now?
    I can see the new trolls are rising, Intel CPUs are overpriced and rubbish, all of them need to be sold for half a price or less...oh hold on this is not the RTX 2080 Ti :cool::D

    As I've already mentioned it I cannot wait for Zen 3!

    Meaning what. I don't understand how releasing a few weeks after nVidia is bad. The first batch of nVidia cards are going to go to miners anyway, so...

    Your soul sounds completely empty, not just half empty. You don't lose anything by giving them a chance. If they don't deliver, then that's it, if they do, then you've got two choices instead of one. Two choices is always better than one.

    Is any launch not a paper launch? Even software features are paper launched nowadays.

    Google: "In the coming weeks"
    Tesla: "Buy full self driving now for $8000 and you'll get it sometime in the next 20 years"

    Personally I'm pretty excited for Zen3. This should be where AMD finally matches or surpasses Intel in high FPS gaming. Now if I could just get my x370 to support the CPU that would be lovely.

    Now the wait to see if any memory controller improvements they've made shows in low resolution high fps benchmarks. That's the only thing I'm really waiting for. Not that I'm gaming that way, but it'll show that they're covering all basis to destroy Intel.
    My bank account awaits.

    Thats not what a paper launch means. A paper launch would be stating "available now", but its factually not available to buy for a few weeks to come, ie. the launch data is before actual real world availability. If they say "available september 17" and you can actually buy it on that day, then its a normal launch.

    Sure, but what people here mean by paper launch is based on the quantity available at launch. Sure you can launch in different regions around the world to have a proper launch in that region but today's corporate world is different and having regional launches is seen as weak in the corporate industry. But sure you can have your "worldwide" launch and hit all the major areas, US, EU, ASIA, etc but how available is it? Are you releasing 1000 units? 1 million units? or 10 million units? You can launch everywhere but if you only have enough to appease 10% of your customers that isn't really a proper launch is it. This is where "just in time" production comes into play these days, you only make what you can sell and you only make to order.

    Word going around is that the 3080 will have very limited stock, the 3070 will be slightly better, but the 3090 will be like gold dust.

    Basically getting one of these cards on day one of their respective launches will be very very hard, hence why people claim its effectively a paper launch.

    Finally some tangible news about the launches - up until now all we got were rumors. I am a bit disappointed that the RDNA2 launch is in late October, as it means I won't be able to buy a partner card before the Cyberpunk release.

    But as long as the price/performance is decent, RDNA2 is definitely my next upgrade. And I can wait a few weeks to play Cyberpunk :).

    I agree but what Nvidia just did and what AMD are doing are announcements about when the products will launch. So the person way above claiming this was a paper launch should be corrected because its not a launch its an announcement about when the products will launch. Anyhow if Nvidia or AMD don't have high volumes of product on said launch days then it is a paper launch.

    I was expecting the announcement of Big Navi to be sooner, they are going to lose a ton of sales because of the timing.

    Still, i´m very excited to see what AMD has in store regarding Zen3 and RX6000 series.

    So TI version will come around Feb March 2k21 then...

    I hope AMD nails it with both Zen 3 and RDNA2.

    For Zen3, can we expect DDR5 RAM?

    For RDNA2, is Nvidia's 3090 .. an anticipatory action due to what intel they have on RDNA2?

    This could swing either way.. imho. It could be a dud .. or it could be a hit. Will look at the 'purposeful' leaks in the coming weeks :p

    Gah, two more months of waiting. Not sure why they drag this out? AMD, now is the time to strike!
