Benchmark Scores #1 worldwide on 3D Mark 99 or 2000 or one of those, at one point back in the day. :)
I'm already thinking which one to take, I doubt I'll go with reference although blowing that heat out would be nice. But I think I'll go either with AiO or aftermarket cooler ones. Unsure how it would work if both CPU and GPU AiO's were dumping the heat inside the case on the front of the case. That would be like 500W of heat dumped into the case. We'll see...

You just have your fans blowing the air OUT of the case, job done! ;)

Hardware Canucks guy said "Who said anything about performing slower?" in one of their tweets. Could this be my prediction of "Yes, it consumes more than GTX 1080Ti, but also performs faster"?

Seriously though, if Vega destroys the 1080ti I will cry tears of joy.

It will also mean I was wrong, but I couldn't care less.

Benchmark Scores Faster than yours... I'd bet on it. :)

.........and the cooler air will be choked without adequate incoming air.

Hear hear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Though, if it matches and slightly beats the 1080Ti, I will feel the same way. I don't need a vaguely defined "destruction" for me to be happy.
