    I dont see it as slower. Rather 4% faster than vega 64. Still, if translates to less power consumption, heat, price, then looks OK for current market. Of course all that is out the window if Nvidia release their new line.

    Its slower than the LC 64, absolutely no point in this, as mining bubbles burst.

    I like the disclaimer, "This graphics card is not released yet. Data on this page may change in the future."

    Doesnt that basically apply to any future GPUs speculation that have not been officially announced? And where future GPU speculation is a big part of tech forum discussions? Welcome to tech forums.

    I doubt its only 4% faster. 14nm vs 7nm and only so little?

    Maybe its just a raw base clock estimate, I dare to say it will boost higher then 1650MHz like current Vega. More like up north in 1800-1900 area, basically enough to rival nv full GP102 - TitanXP

    Most probably to drop the power consumption, if it is on 7nm.
    It was said iirc, that the 7nm shrink of Vega would be for the Pro Market only.
    The 7nm Vega will probably be "Passively" cooled in a rack.
    I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't do 7 or more of these cards per rack, maxing out the x16 slots available from the CPUs.

    I am most interested in the power usage and it's ability to OC.
