This card was NEVER meant to be a consumer graphics card. This was made for the artificial intelligence market, automotive industries. HBM2 was too expensive so AMD killed Vega development and focused on Navi. Taping issues during final production caused the delay of the Navi announcement at CES. AMD was losing money on Vega\HBM2. The only reason it was completed was to have a back up plan if Navi failed. Wait for Navi to be announced in June \ July release. Navi 12 = RX580-1060 performance\RX3060\4GB GDDR6\75W TDP\$130usd Navi 12= Vega56-1070 performance\RX3070\8GB GDDR6\120W TDP\$200usd Navi 10 = Vega 64 + 15% - GTX1080 perfomance\RX3080\8GB DDR6\150W TDP\$250usd Reference: AdoredTV.

im fine with my 1080 ti , i also have a backlog of over 1000 games on steam , i am fine even if i cant play all the newest games in 4k , i got a 1440p 144hz monitor anyway i dont really care what gpu manufactors do at this point , since amd disappoints and nvidia is kinda lazy , i will just save up money and get a vive , i have to wait for next gen consoles anyway , most games that still come to current gen arent even worth playing because they are held back by ancient hardware , so whats the point in getting an rtx 2080 ti

I mean it's nice to watch these clips showing off new amazing GPUS or SSDs or whatever, but it means nothing to me since the prices are....interesting? I currently have amd fx8350 and i bought my pc for 800e, after borrowing lots of money. To some people it's laughable that i'm saying this but average paycheck in my country (Serbia) is 300 e. At the end of the month after all living expenses,costs i am left with 100e to eat for a month. Laughable to even think that we can afford a single component worth $700 with these paychecks. The reason i'm saying this is all the new cool games that keep coming out and make me go into shock, is because with every game the requirements keep increasing drastically from my perspective. Even games that are popular like Pubg,Fornite,RoE i cannot play because at the 'lowest set graphic quality' it gives me notification 'low fps lower your quality' . It's a dreamland for me but nothing i can do about it. The prices are expensive for people with 2,3x my paycheck yet alone for mine. I tried even to stream to at least make a dollar that way so i can buy a better pc, but playing a game while streaming without losing a lot of FPS is so hard. Especially when you have to find a game to play viewers will watch. Of course this is also a dreamland and drooped it. End point of mine is that i'm giving a like because the videos are always well informative and nice to watch, very enjoyable but at the end of it i always feel bitter about myself. Maybe one day the prices will adjust.

They way they market it as being 1440p and 4K playable seems very mundane and as if they don't have much confidence in the card. I doubt it will compete with a 2080 in most titles. It will probably sit between a 2070 and 2080, but that price will make it uncompetitive, especially if Nvidia release 1100 series of their higher end cards since RTX features are very expensive and AMD doesn't support them, even though they are priced against them.

because of people like you we will never see competition from AMD. All you want, like most, is AMD to make a good gpu to bring down the price of Nvidia gpu's. You'd never actually consider putting an AMD card in your system. And before you say "well 10 years ago I had an entry level AMD blah" yea it's called you didnt have the money for that precious Nvidia card yet.

I'm a 3D animator, I have 2 PCs right now .. One is Intel with nvidia card, the other is AMD with Radeon card .. the cpu's are from the same era .. let me tell you, both have the same performance in everything .. AMD is cheaper, but Intel and Nvidia have more support .. meaning that more applications - games or not - are made to run on Intel and Nvidia .. but in terms of raw power, they go neck and neck .. Sometimes I prefer this, sometimes I prefer that .. What I like about AMD and Radeon is that you get power with all your money .. you are not paying just to brag that you have blah blah blah .. Intel and Nvidia are more user friendly .. I'm sorry to say that but I feel like they're for noobs who don't appreciate what AMD is offering .. I'm not saying Intel and Nvidia are bad .. I love both my machines .. One to spoil myself and one for the rough rides .. Just saying what I feel about them ..

Why when AMD does something SLIGHTLY right, everyone gives extra compliments like they did something bigger than they did but didn't? And when Nvidia goes beyond, people buy their products but give half assed compliments and seem less impressed? I just feel like AMD can add one extra GB of VRAM to their card and everyone will go on a parade for it whereas Nvidia can go double or triple the distance and it seems like Nvidia has to work EXTRA hard just to get an "eh that's good" out of people? People are so fucking weird.

Linus, great article again. I share your sentiment that competition is good. But... There are two things awkward here. 1.) RTX is way too overpriced 2.) Radeon VII might be good, but is still VEGA, not Navi 3.) no Raytracing So buying an old chip basically. What are your thoughts. Matt

AMD just made a case for buying the RTX 2080. If you are stupid enough to consider paying 700 USD for this card, maybe you will smell the coffee and shell out a little more to get the much more capable RTX card.

So let me get this straight, Vega 64 wasn't a competitor when it was comparable to the 1080 over a year later, but now we have the Vega VII which is competitive with the 2080/1080Ti (mind you almost 2 years later) and we are ecstatic? I thought Vega 56 + 64 were good cards (and still are), but we're really changing the narrative here for what?
