    Lol! By the way he puts it then the 2080 must be lousy also. Looks like he is mad about being forced to lower his prices on his overpriced products... Hmmm looks like the lower msrp of AMD new card is throwing his plans overboard and his promises out the window that he made to his investors. Oh and they’re already not happy with his lies.
    Just to add, for a CEO to drop to this low level is just beyond me...

    I find Huang's statements laughable, as Turing was one of the biggest disappointments in recent memory. Vega 7 is certainly lousy for its price but so is the 2080 (and don't give me any of that crap about RTX, a gimmick that hardly any games support). It's like he's trying to make his own disappointing product better by comparing it to AMD's disappointing product.

    I dunno. Maybe I'm just angry at Huang for lying through his teeth about the mining scenario (the damage this has done to my portfolio is downright depressing), but if I were in his shoes I would think twice about criticizing someone else for underperforming. Speaking as a stockholder, his performance as CEO as of late has been downright lousy, and I am sick and tired of his BS.

    here in Vegas, the corporate suites are all abuzz with this unprofessional behavior.

    imho, right now AMD could just buy Nvidia, so some moderation is in order.
    and not just AMD...the clear and present danger is that Intel can buy Nvidia with cash on hand and improve their market status.

    he speaks 100% the truth. Owned amd before.. the best card they had to offer. if i remembered correctly, nvidia still crushed the living hell outta it.

    *then again, we do need amd to piss this guy off so he can optimize dlss further.

    One thing I have noticed is the fact that the new card from AMD only has 60 active compute units and not 64 like Vega 64. Maybe yields of 7nm is not so good yet so they lock some CUs down? Maybe there will be another 64 CU card coming out a month or 2 after this 60 CU Vega2 with another 100mhz bump in clock speed??? If what AMD said is true that Vega2 60 is on 2080 performance then I can see a Vega2 with 64 CUs with another 100mhz bump in clock speed to be on pare with the 2080ti for maybe another $100 more. That will be 2080ti performance for $799... Who knows, maybe that is why JHH is so mad because he is looking at the same thing. And given the fact that AMD have Navi around the corner to take the midrange crown from Nvidia and their 2060... Looks like poor JHH is getting a little stressed to look his investors in the face.
    Lol! This is all speculation and please take it with a grain of salt. Plenty salt lol!

    When asked to comment on Huang’s critique of the card, AMD CEO Lisa Su responded: “What I would say is that we’re very excited about Radeon VII, however I would also say that my Uncle is a very wise man and I should listen.”

    At least the version that made me chuckle went that way...

    So, Jensen is now firing own-goals with an "anything below a 2080Ti is lousy" statement. I can see that backfiring quite a bit, and with that, this pretty much cements my own departure as an Ngreedia consumer.

    It's likely that the full-fat chips will simply be sold as Instinct MI60 cards.

    As things stand I expect the Radeon 7 to be most interesting to content creators and a small niche of gamers interested in cards at that price bracket, perhaps with some overlap between the two. IIRC Radeon 7 is running higher clocks than the Instinct cards already and a measly 4 additional CUs aren't going to make a notable difference in performance, certainly not enough to warrant another SKU in what's already an overcrowded market of enthusiasts GPUs.

    It's more likely, and something @tunejunky alluded to in other threads, that we'll see a further cut down version at a cheaper price point. The Vega 56 equivalent if you will.

    I don't understand. Don't you mean the other way around? In every financial category (net revenue, total assets, total equity, etc) Nvidia is nearly double (sometimes triple) the value of AMD.
    That I think is more probable, and actually, I'm slightly surprised that hasn't happened yet. I guess part of it has to do with the tough relationship between Intel and Nvidia.
    Considering Huang's ego, I'm sure we can both agree that he would do anything to stop either company from buying him out.

    Why is that important, i cant think of a single industry where the fastest/most expensive item in the range is the most profitable. If AMD can go head to head with the 2080 and below then thats is a serious worry for NV, look what happened at Intel when they had viable competition.

    It has to do with Nvidia not being a good target until after the company had a $150B market cap - now down to $80B. $80B for Nvidia would be a garbage deal for Intel though - they'll probably land within 90% of Nvidia's performance for 1/10th that cost by 2020 with Raja and co.

    And yeah there is absolutely zero way AMD could buy Nvidia. They already have $1B in long term debt that they've had trouble paying back (they literally sold their HQ and rented it back to pay down some of the debt) but they are going to magically raise 40x that for a buyout? lol.

    AMD has been matching with Nvidia in midrange market for generations - hell I'd argue they've been ahead. It hasn't really done them any favors. I agree that having the fastest card probably wouldn't change much but merely competing with the 2080, 6 months later, on a smaller process, with more power and less features at the same pricepoint isn't a good look.

    Hopefully it's not as disappointing as the previous releases.

    Really, R300 put nVidia so far down it took the company two years to dig its way out again...;) AMD did the same thing to Intel for a year or so, way back when. I think we are on the cusp of a true AMD Renaissance once again--leave the old-hat, been-there ideas to Intel/nVidia, and press ahead. "RTX" is almost as original as a solar eclipse, imo (its a concept dragged out of the closet so many times in the last 20 years it's got mold growing on it...!)

    Breakneck competition is good--and who the heck needs Gameworks? That's like using AOL to access the Internet, imo.

    Why the Salt on AMD ? To be honest im looking forward to the new AMD cards. I think the 2000 series cards are lousy. This is coming from Nvidia were they were selling there card with the next big thing they claim that wasnt even in a single game. Nvidia are just as bad as EA/Blizzard.

    Real lame this trash talk from a CEO... He should be more concerned about the terrible value of the RTX lineup...
