Lol made you look, happY April fools day:nerd::grin:
Hah, good one.
You b*stard, you got me! lol
It logically is impossible unless they clock the Vega at 2GHz yet my dumbass still clicked into the thread.
Ahahahahahah u got me
At 10K resolution it might be though. 8FPS vs 5FPS
As long as it's DX12 and a Ryzen system.

+1 april fools!
Some 40% or so improvement would be a pretty good result though, but not from the 1080Ti as that's a bit unlikely but from the existing Fury / Fury X.
Would make it catch up a little bit to the 1070 and 1080 at least which AMD probably has to if they intend for Vega 10 or what it'll be actually called to be a more pricey enthusiast end GPU if the 580 (480 +1) is to be their high end offering. (Or mid-range I guess, not really sure where AMD has the 480 or upcoming 580 re-spin of it placed.) We'll see I suppose, 1080 is about 50% faster (If not more.) so matching or at least catching up to that is probably important even if Vega might not be able to match the 1080Ti or perhaps it will, almost everything about Vega is unknown so far besides some rumors and possibly leaked info if it's not just made up. (Doubt it will be able to match the Ti though, nice as that would have been to get some actual competition going for the higher-end GPU segment.)
EDIT: Drivers is probably also going to be a key, hopefully without any problems such as black screen crashes or display corruption this time although optimizations are a bit over hyped going by tests using even very old drivers in more recent titles though bugs and anomalies like the GPU under performing is of course important.
480 is starting to catch up a bit but the 4 GB of the Fury is limiting things in newer games too, will be nice to see a higher-capacity HBM(2) GPU finally, ha ha. (Unsure if Vega ever had a actual release date but they do need something new out eventually besides re-releases.)
Though the Fury(X) was already using 4096 GCN processors thingies but I guess if the 480 hadn't been held back to 2560 or what it was it's other improvements would have made it a bit of a power house too, will be interesting to see if Vega is GCN 4th too or possibly newer and what other improvements it'll allow for.
VSR above 3840x2160 is a nice improvement for Polaris even if 5120x2880 might be a bit high for a single GPU to drive in newer games, guessing 21:9 support would be welcome too but that's a total unknown.
Software solution like Nvidia did via a 1x - 8x slider would have been more flexible even if scaling would ideally require 1x, 2x, 4x or 8x only for best scaling instead of odd values or how to say.
(Still going to be demanding of course, 2560x1440 to 2x is already 5120x2880 though I suppose it would be 2x2 or 4x to be accurate, ha ha.)
Not really sure what 2560x1080 would scale to or 3840x1440 for the 21:9 resolutions, guessing you could just do the same 2x, 4x or 8x there too really.
(8K 21:9? 7680x2880 then. )
But that's not really related to Vega (Or April 1st. ) anyways, it'll be interesting to see what AMD will eventually reveal and then seeing some actual reviews of the GPU. (Finally. Ha ha.)
My BS detector hit the end stop, I was compelled to click.
Good one lol should have typed up a false article as well lol
I'm two days late and you still got me. Another Monday of feeling stupid...
Hope Vega will rock anyway once out.
trigger game strong.
55 - 60% slower would have been more believable
