It's a shame they couldn't do HBM2 on the professional cards and DDR on the consumer version like what Nvidia is doing. At least that way we can have a Vega card before Xmas. The way it's going who knows when we will get consumer cards based on Vega. Also I very much doubt we will get 7nm Vega by the first quarter of 2018. That is when Volta is supposed to launch from the looks of the rumors.
