    Well, no one should be surprised. They wanted affordable VR solutions, and that would be it... 970/390 is the very start of VR.

    iGPU is a looong way from ever matching the midrange segments of the dGPU manufacturers.

    Transistor numbers are comparable - much more than the die example because of the different process and because the 1070 has 30% less units enabled than the full GP-104.

    It doesn't look good for the resale value of current AMD cards.

    $199 seems a little low and abit too good to be true, but if true they would definitely sell well.

    Not bad specs, however I think we need to see some benchmarks before jumping to a conclusion. Besides we do not know the clock speeds yet.

    MultiGPU that way is a bit suicidal. You'll be after profiles half of the time, and the other half you'll be cursing developers who patch frequently.

    You mean that all the guys who bought 4K monitors, made a mistake, because still everyone single card is insufficient?

    Another question is what is Nvidia releasing mid June? And will it beat AMD to market? 1060ti? 250?

    We knew UHD came early, and since then hardware is catching up to it. There's nothing wrong with wanting UHD gaming, but if you want the highest FPS, you're either going to have to rely on multi-GPU support, turn down some settings, or wait for better GPU's.

    If this is only $199 it's looking like a really good deal for 1080P and even 1440p in some games. I think it would do very well in the mainstream segment where the vast majority of gamers are at (or below even). Even at $249.99 it looks like a nice option, theoretically at least.

    Maybe AMD should update their presentation to compare against the 1070/1080 instead. Get on with the times, Team Red ;)

    I disagree.

    For starters people just assume everyone plays the latest, most demanding games. I know two people with 4K monitors, both have single 980Ti's. Both play games like Overwatch/Fortnite/SC2/Dota 2/League and stuff just fine at max graphics. When we all played the Division, they turned down a few settings and played at the ~40-45fps area, which is more than enough if you have a G-Sync/Freesync display. And even in Division, the difference in image quality between Medium/Ultra is like barely relevant and at medium you can play 60fps/4K on a 980Ti. In fact I'd argue that in a majority of games, the image quality/detail gain going to 4K is often better than going from High -->Ultra.

    Like out of the top 20 most played games today on steam, 14 of them are playable at 4K at Max settings at 60fps on a 980Ti, let alone a 1080.

    Question, if this slide is true, does everyone think I should sell my 390 to get this?

    First of all, comparing this to the GTX 1070 is misleading like others have pointed out. The cost is significantly less, and is likely tagetting the GTX 1060. The competitor for the GTX 1070 is likely the 480X, but with that keep in mind the cost of both. The real competitor to the GTX 1080 is Vega, which will be released later. The market for cards like GTX 1080 and Vega is much smaller than more competitively price cards, it makes sense for AMD to release cards in more of the general market first. If the price of US$199 is true then it will be exceptionally good value, the market could well shift in favour of the 480X etc. The Teraflops rating isn't absolute in terms of rating performance, at best it is a guide.

    I don't know how else to say it...people who say 4k is useless or that there arent cards that can run it just have no idea what they're talking about. It really isn't significantly different from running 1440p with AA.

    4k gives you 50-60% of 1440p fps. It's pretty demanding.

    It's given AMD better results in DX12 then they otherwise would've had. Even if it's only 5% better.

    Lol, a $200 (CDN) R9 285 is waaaaaaaaaaaay better than any integrated solution. $200-~$350 is the sweet spot. But people will buy a solid $200 card if it's availible.

    AMD don't need to compete with the 1080, but they DO need a 1070 competitor ASAP.
