    I hope it comes soon. I'm about to drop on a new GPU, and I'm waiting on the Radeon VII review to see if it could be worth it.

    for $150 less money with 100% compatibility with Freesync I & II (HDR).
    variable refresh does work with freesync monitors, i've played my laptop's gtx1070 on my freesync office monitor...but there are levels to the compatibility and HDR is not one of them. you will only get HDR for g-sync on g-sync II (or deluxe) monitors.
    furthermore, LFC is limited for the lower range of fps on freesync with nvidia cards.

    I dont see the point of this GPU.
    The vega 64 stock reference is already faster than the 1080 stock reference so what is the point in replacing that card with this one.
    Power is no different and the architecture is the same,
    If they just used their heads and dropped the clocks 10% to slash the power usage in half they would only need a single 8 pin. But noooo this is AMD' they enjoy alienating everyone with insane power usage for single percentage performance gains. Just constant face palming

    Do you live in a country with serious power shortages, or something? Government is pressuring the citizens to only use x kWh per month?

    Well my Samsung C27HG70 can have both VRR and HDR enabled on it with an nVidia card with no troubles @1440p 144hz. FarCry 5 works perfect with HDR and VRR. All I had to do was turn on FreeSync Ultimate/2 in the monitor.

    Yes that's really cool. I'm seriously considering getting this monitor as well. The fact you can do VRR and HDR on both AMD and Nvidia makes this a very good buy at this price.

    Today Asus Croatia distributors showed up and said to my staff if we want one, exclusive etc, only 2 will be available from them atm,.
    So one will go to our shop, the other one will go to one of your PC shops in Serbia :)

    Yeah would be nice for a change xD

    Will see, but locally it will be expensive for sure.

    I will be surprised if this is the only gaming GPU AMD releases this year based on 7nm VII tech. I would expect to see a very fast gaming variant close to the ~$300 sweet spot by3rd/4th calendar Q at the latest--with 8GBs, etc. (Mid-range discrete cards usually outsell the high-end cards by a considerable margin, etc.) I've been running W3 lately (again) @ 3840x2160 X-fire and according to the R overlay software I never consume more than 4GBs of Vram no matter what I want to pile on in terms of eye-candy. I get similar Vram usage numbers for the software running Shadow of the Tomb Raider, as well. But--this is just a guess, of course... But for professional/semi-professional use, 16GB could conceivably be used when multitasking a number of high-end rendering and compilation programs. Should be an interesting year! (Not the least for the next Ryzen cpus, as well!)

    I'm quite curious to see how the cooler performs, it looks like a serious upgrade over AMDs traditional stock coolers. Not that that's much of an achievement in and of itself.. :p

    Also interested to know who designed it, if we'll ever know.
