Still no new info on low-end Navi cards?
No crossfire anymore for Navi, so good by AMD, it was nice to have you arround
Im sure all the 1% of multi gpu users will be disappointed.
You can make fun about it, but It would surprise you if you convert it to $ how much impact this small minority had. Buying two or three flagship models every time/year.
(Otherwise CF would never existed).
But now Microsoft have handed Multi GPU over to the developer, it's not in AMD hands anymore, and devs have no reason too support it, other then prestige.
I have a rx480 if multi gou was really well suported by this time I will do crossfire, but since multigpu is not suported or is just junk on most game engines I will have to upgrade.
Its sad as I do like multigpu configs
3Dfx tried to do that, it didn't go too well for them.
Nvidia is as close as you can get with the FE cards, but they are playing with fire with the AIB vendors.
After reading reviews by Guru3d on the XT, I'm not too sure if it is worth keeping my 1080ti Strix card anymore.
Almost the same result with 70 watts less power? 11Gb vs 8 Gb vram, yes, but GDDR5x vs GDDR6. I dunno eh.
Gaming at G-sync 1440p ( I'll take any fps above 100 )
So on Deus ex and Strange Brigade the 1080ti has advantage, but still...
I was planning on SLI'ing this card when 1080ti became cheaper 2nd hand, but the 2080ti pricing messed that idea up pretty good.
Or... perhaps because the 5700XT performance as almost as good, the 1080ti's will pop up 2nd hand again?
I guess I can wait, yet, Performance per Watt is becoming quite important here ( Belgium has very high taxes on electricity... )
The 1080 Ti's second hand seem still overpriced, at least in Holland.
Going around 400Euro for 1080ti used here.
Glimps In to the Future™
Here i will try to foresee the Future o GPUs.
I will start with Arcturus Navi2 with HBM2 GPU
Arcturus will have Navi 2 Cores + HBM2 (or HBM3) VRam at min. of 16GB 4x4GB 1.2TB/s
It will have 10-15% better IPC than Navi 1. Path Tracing? 90% Yes.
Most likely it will be larger Chip at min. of 450-500mm2 (Yes 2x Navi 1) at ~264tW
Price? Up to 699USD
I hope for LC Modello, insta buy
This is what i want for future upgrade.
Spoiler: Is it right? It's very likely it is
You always want something thats allot better. The cheapest I saw used 1080ti was $480. I was blessed.. I wanted just to try the RTX lol.. so sold my 1080ti for more then I paid for the 2080. And now.. I would HAVE to have something like 2080TI or better. Amd does a wonderful job when you have two cards. And 11gb vs 8gb? You would never be able to tell.

Any rumours on when 3rd party Navi cards are coming?
AMD Readies Larger 7nm "Navi 12" Silicon to Power Radeon RX 5800 Series?
AMD is developing a larger GPU based on its new "Navi" architecture to power a new high-end graphics card family, likely the Radeon RX 5800 series.
The codename "Navi 12" is doing rounds on social media through familiar accounts that have high credibility with pre-launch news and rumors.
The "Navi 10" silicon was designed to compete with NVIDIA's "TU106," as its "XT" and "Pro" variants outperform NVIDIA's original RTX 2060 and RTX 2070, forcing it to develop the RTX 20 Super series, by moving up specifications a notch.
Refreshing its $500 price-point was particularly costly for NVIDIA, as it was forced to tap into the 13.6 billion-transistor "TU104" silicon to carve out the RTX 2070 Super; while for the RTX 2060 Super, it had to spend 33 percent more on the memory chips.
With the "Navi 12" silicon, AMD is probably looking to take a swing at NVIDIA's "TU104" silicon,
which has been maxed out by the RTX 2080 Super, disrupting the company's $500-700 lineup once again, with its XT and Pro variants.
There's also a remote possibility of "Navi 12" being an even bigger chip, targeting the "TU102."
I thought Navi 12 was supposed to be the low end chips and Navi 20 the high end sku.
