So, 40% uplift in performance and 40% less stock. Sound perfect! Where do I not find one when they release?

But muh Ray Tracing, I need my Cinematic 1080p experience!!!11!!

I doubt very much so these claims. 40% performance improvement I dont doubt, but 60-70% power usage reduction? on 7nm? Yeah right, even intel refining the same process and architecture for over half a decade couldnt do that. I'll belive it when I see it.

It'd be much more realistic IMO for 20-30% perf increases at the same power usage as current gen products.
Kill cryptocurrencies before you release it.
Nobody is mining crypto with AMD, their perf/$ is awful. AMD just has no freaking supply. The numbers dont lie, even with mining the RTX 3000 series is showing up on steam. No sign of AMD.

If current situation still exists when they release 7900 XT it might cost as much as a cheap new car.

There's far too much money in crypto now. You're going to have to learn how to deal with it.

Anyways, AMD's cards aren't the ones miners are going after. Scalpers on the other hand...

I think this scenario is possible since both the giants were asleep. Nvidia is likely caught by surprise this round as well by going with a matured node, i.e. Samsung 8nm (a refined 10nm). But that's only in the retail space. Their cash cow is still their HPC products which Intel is trying to have a go as well.

TSMC is overcrowded. we know nvidia has been looking for alternative since 2012. if they did not start seriously investing and build major product at samsung then that alternative will never come. for HPC product nvidia will most likely keep them build at TSMC. nvidia probably hoping by the time they need 5nm samsung can come up with the process that they want for their gaming GPU. TSMC probably looking closely at samsung advancement as well. Qualcomm already there and nvidia are giving samsung the experience needed for them to make big and complex chip. if samsung make a good progress maybe even AMD will consider to make some of their product at samsung.

Because silicon is being wasted on phones, worst still phones are moving backwards with less features, headphone jack and grouped dead pixels.
Ugh, MLID. I give zero credibility to that channel. Can we stop treating it as 'news'?
No idea why people watch his nonsense.

What happened to 3x the performance from just a couple days ago rumors? Lol
:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) it went from 3x (which was actually 2.5x in the original article) to 40% so fast!
He called those out in the video as BS... Not really sure who in their right mind expects a 3x jump from RDNA2 anyway...

No idea why people watch his nonsense.
Probably because 99% of other "leakers" are in a clickbait spiral... Even if he's full of it, he at least puts in some effort to try to come up with something that is within the realms of possibility.

I will not believe that AMD can improve performance by 3x in a single generation, considering RDNA2 itself is not a slow graphic solution. If its pointing to a specific function, for example, RT performance, then that could be possible.
While I can't estimate how much performance they can gain, keep in mind that Navi 21 is still relatively "small", there is room to add a lot of CUs until they start hitting the reticle limit.

we know nvidia has been looking for alternative since 2012.

I really doubt that, they've been shit talking TSMC because that's what they do with all their partners. This Samsung business was just them failing to get TSMC to budge, Nvidia wanted TSMC wafers because they are the best but their prices doesn't allow for the fat profits that they want.

Having 2 chiplets with the same number of CUs to the 6900XT's one, made on the 5nm vs the 7nm of the latter, should be great surprise if 7900XT won't be more than 70% faster. I calculate at least 80% more performance @1440P with even more @higher resolutions.

AMD's 7000 series was pretty fantastic. Great overclockers, good performance out of the box, and good power efficiency. Very forward looking to boot.

The article title is a bit misleading, the leak says a minimum of a 40% increase to performance per watt and a 60-70% performance increase.
Don't forget very affordable and available at the time ;)

I would rather it be even just 10% faster if we could actually buy it for a decent price.

In a dream world: "7900xt to up to 40% faster at X nm, but will design manufactured on different nodes to increase availability, 7800xt series chips on node Y nm, 7700xt on Znm - will be lower CU products, AMD to flood market with GFX cards..."

Who on earth could believe it could be 200% (3 times) faster, really? In the last couple of years (maybe even decade), the Geforce 1000 series had the biggest performance jump and it didn't reach 90%. Plus we are just speculating about performance. Don't be a green eyed baby, please.

40% better at Raytracing puts it 10% behind the current RTX 3,000 series, Complete waste of time because by then Nvidia could be another 50-80% better in raytracing. Still be crap at raytracing.

So, 40% uplift in performance and 40% less stock. Sound perfect! Where do I not find one when they release?

If it's really a chiplet based GPU the stock situation will drastically improve. . Smaller dies means less wasted silicon and more GPUs per wafer. This also means the cost of wasted silicon goes down which reduces the overall expense to produce the product.

40% better at Raytracing puts it 10% behind the current RTX 3,000 series, Complete waste of time because by then Nvidia could be another 50-80% better in raytracing. Still be crap at raytracing.

That's based on titles with Nvidia optimized ray tracing, not an AMD focused implementation.

I would rather it be even just 10% faster if we could actually buy it for a decent price.

In a dream world: "7900xt to up to 40% faster at X nm, but will design manufactured on different nodes to increase availability, 7800xt series chips on node Y nm, 7700xt on Znm - will be lower CU products, AMD to flood market with GFX cards..."

That's precisely what chiplets are supposed to help enable.
