This is Vega done right w/Async Compute, Rapid Packed Math, Shader Intrinsics:rockout:

I wonder what're the clocks & TDP?
Wasn't rapid packed math used on Far Cry 5? Doesn't come as a surprise it's being used again by the same company.

$699 ... for ~2080 peformance.
Uh, bummer.
Just slightly undercutting nv, but not by much.

Gaming performance is up 35-42% in games, thanks to a massive 2.5 GHz clock speed!
Who the hell wrote this? It's up to 1.8Ghz, not 2.5Ghz. 700Mhz increase on a 7nm proces is a bit too optimistic lol.

These are obvious failed Vega II 64 die's put in as gamer chips.

700 bucks... man. Sure you get $150 worth of games, but honestly, I don't see them flying of the shelves at that price. Was expecting 550 top.

AMD RTX 2080 equivalent for $699... F...that. I can buy RTX 2080 for such price in Germany today. AMD is following NGreedia steps. First RX 590 for $290 and now this. Abandon all hope. Nvidia digged the grave and AMD just nailed last nail to the coffin :(

16GB of HBM2 does'nt come cheap. Neither the Vega 64 chip itself.

It's placed competetive.. takes a while but sooner or later the price drops. I'll buy that card.

16GB HBM2 must be expensive, but does it justify this price? Think not.

Only chance is a mini price war in 2019 to bring these two at a more decent 550-600 level.
Otherwise, I'll keep my Pascal as well. At 699 not worth to upgrade.

I feel maybe we got the short end of the stick again VS compute, AMD may have been aiming for a more alive crypto market, but the fact that they can capitalize on the server market.....

I was really hoping they would slot in just under nv prices and make up some cash. This is all dependent on the performance slotting just under as well. How were there no leaks on this?

45 watts less for same perf as 9900k non-overcloked.

Not bad, but I want the one with two chiplets...
Guess we'll have to wait more.

Nice to have them, but not a revolution as everyone hoped. Oh well...

An all-core boost 4.0 (max 4.2) GHz Ryzen 3000 having 8C/16T in early sample isn't impressive you said? With a win over 9900K that boosts up to 4.7GHz all-cores having 40-50W less consumption? And cheaper with abling the X370 and X470 owners to upgrade for sure? What did you expect then? Call me impressed AMD!

And for anyone wondering where the clocks I posted came, I just compared 2700X 1830 points score of CB15 to the 2057 of Ryzen 3000 one and we have 12% increase which is the IPC expected gain. 2700X runs an all-core boost of 4-4.05GHz, so there you have it.

For Vega VII, it will be a limited number product only for prosumers imho. A stop-gap until Navi's later launch.

I can get a 2080 right now for that price, so it really is meh.
I will wait for reviews to decide anyway, but right now the 2080 is trialed and proven vs Radeon 7 that is still quite uncertain.
That performance per watt is not looking good either.

It looks like they basically took AMD Radeon Instinct MI50 add active cooling and increase core/memory frequencies. Vega 64 deja vu all over again :(

As for the CPU performance thumbs up. Ryzen 2 will be a beast.

eh... i mean when ryzen 1700 came out it was up against the 7700K and absolutely destroyed it in Cinebench. So this is not great news.

It destroyed it with double the cores.
Gamers have enough cores, they want more clock speed and IPC, so AMD gave it to them.
