So you keep saying the fan noise, but there isn't any review out there for the Radeon VII that confirms that much noise... Blower style coolers can be loud, but again Polaris and Vega were platforms made for tweaking to eliminate this even with blower style cards. There are a ton of guides that shows you how to do this. As far as mobile products go, GCN is not a product made for mobile nor was it ever. Did you see any full Fermi mobile cards? No. Whether Navi will fix this or not, who knows. I'll believe it when I see it. For the 1080 Ti, Radeon VII in general performance matches it. In media creation and content editing though, Radeon VII easily has that over it thanks to the 16gb Vram and bandwidth available. Different use case scenario. But the 1080 Ti is a hard card to beat, the 2080 is in the same boat. High end Pascal is a very hard platform to beat. But Nvidia has said nothing about 7nm, so saying stuff like that makes no real sense. You would have to run your card 24/7 at that wattage to notice any difference on your electric bill. Now in third world areas where power is not cheap, this could be a problem easily. But in most areas around the world energy is cheap to the point where this is not going to make a dent in the average electric bill.
