im hoping amd has a beastly dgpu this time around. Its getting boring picking between amds latest top of the line gpu, or nvidias top of the line from 3 generations ago for best performance in my budget. I personally dont feel a new gpu release consists of all new dynamic shadow puppet rendering technology or light ray pixel smoothing, or whatever stupid firestarting gimmick they come up with.

Amd needs to release something that competes with the competitions gpu from THIS year & not a few years back, & nvidia needs the competition to actually start needing to try. Once performance is posted online by several 3rd parties, then a choice can be made

all 3 of the free games look pretty boring to me. I watched some youtube gameplay videos of all 3. /shrug I'm going to pass on those 3 games myself.
Really just Div 2 has a mild interest, first one was truly the best crafted world I’ve ever had the pleasure to wander. The bullet sponge mechanics were the real turnoff. I don’t do hack and slash so DMC means nothing and I could take or leave RE.

Still happy with my performance from Vega@1440 but now that I’m overclocking power consumption went out the window. But it’s still running cool doing it so couldn’t care less.


Try Norway....(Ex-Pat Canuck) you don’t want to know what I paid for my Vega and I got in on “sale” and was literally the only one in the country at the time...
I can only imagine. European nations can get horribly screwed because of VAT taxes, and other little taxes on everything. So I can sympathize.

Edit:

I would like to share my 2 Kopeks on this.

There are people here who are very over zealous on the comments about AMD and their Radeon 7, were they borderline call it trash cause it doesn't compete against the 2080ti. OK, its fair to complain that AMD may not come out with top tier top of the line to compete. But to compete with the option just below it is good for me. Good for most. As competition allows to eventually fight over with price point too. Issue is, AMD is still using the HBM memory which is expensive to say the least. If they went GDDR6 then it may drop price point by at least $100. Maybe I am exaggerating though.

I am not the man who buys top of the line. Mid tier is good for me. Something like a RTX2060 is right at the sweet spot, if it wasn't for the price. Price should be at least $280 - $300 IMO. Now I am intrigued to see what they (AMD) comes out with in that category. My only gripe is the wattage. Otherwise, I wont crap on AMD just because they dont have a 2080TI competitor. I really dont care about that category. And judging by the average consumer, I say they don't care either.

I don't have a favorite brand. Favorite brands are for chumps. I go for best price to performance. Simple as that.

they also have universal healthcare and have no anxiety about being able to afford their medicine.

take your pick. cheaper graphics card you buy once every 4-5 years or anxiety free life...

Wait no more, RX590 came out less than two months ago with MSRP $279, right in your sweet spot :D

yep and once overclocked it does do quite well for tha tprice point actually. minus the heat and power draw. better to be patient and wait for 7nm cheap parts in 6 months

“The performance is lousy and there’s nothing new,” Huang said. “[There’s] no ray tracing, no AI. It’s 7nm with HBM memory that barely keeps up with a 2080. And if we turn on DLSS we’ll crush it. And if we turn on ray tracing we’ll crush it.”
"If we can turn on DLSS or ray tracing, we crush it" "Too bad we can't, most of the time, and people generally don't seem to care about it in the first place"

Oh sorry Huang, did I steal your thoughts?

OH shit it gets even better :D

This is also interesting and kinda echoes... well everything that's been said about RTX. It falls upon the 2060 to 'make the masses ready' apparently. The lowest RTRT performing card. Apparently Nvidia is ready now, after all, we have BFV... and Final Fantasy... and... ? Sad product stack is pretty damn sad I'd say, when only one product has good sales potential.

That is true, but I would rather wait to see what the new chips come out as with a medium spot. RX590 was just a 1060 with GDDR5X imo.

Cant honestly answer the poll.

A liquid cooled version, with all 64 CU's unlocked and rocking an 1750-1800Mhz clock at a $800 price point.. maybe?

I mean right now, Vega64 Liquid is $500 shipped.

Don't get me wrong, Vega II is good. My Vega clocks to 1800Mhz easily and if the clocks on the VII are what they said they were.. 1800Mhz.. Its (VII) at least 18% faster overall in gaming.

So, I'll wait for the fully unlocked cards if they come. Other than that... My Vega64 is fine.

If the cooling is right then I may consider purchasing around Spring time, trying to keep cool of a Vega 64 on reference cooler is quite a noisy bugger when running it at maximum fan speed lol.
But my gut feeling is telling me I may need to change my CPU but I'm going to be replacing my ram kit with 3000mhz, which I should have got from start.

if I didnt have the V i'd be buying two of these to crossfire... praying the performance numbers for overclocking are decent... otherwise nvidia are going to keep pushing up the price of gpu's… :shadedshu:

CES was a disappointment for me as far as a Vega56 owner goes.

Could sell my V56 and go for GTX 2060, but then I dont want a card with 6GB RAM.

On the other end, I was hoping for a 150W die shrink of a V56 in the form of a 3080 at 350USD, and that didnt happen either.

Looks like I will be holding onto my Vega for a bit longer

Unless.... Radeon VII is somewhat competitive and triggers a price war.

Bias poll is Bias. No option for the RTX2080? Seriously!?

Even with Radeon 7, the RTX2080 is still looking like the better buy between the two based on what we know so far. Performance will be about the same, price is the same, and the RTX2080 offers more features(Ray Tracing). Yeah, ray tracing isn't utilized that much yet, but it is something the RTX has over the Radeon while the Radeon offers nothing extra at this point.

So you're only choice is a vega 7 or 980ti umm ok....

Seems you haven't read the thread or forums for the last 2 days as It competes with the 2080 so we're told but won't know any different until reviews on Feb 7th.

I'm waiting for navi
Same here. Before seeing your post i was about to write a post about navi. There were amd's roadmaps showing navi in 2019 and new, non-gcn architecture a year later. My plan for this year until now was to buy navi gpu but now i have no idea what to do as i am totally confused. This whole VII seems to be pointless gpu but still making more sense than 590. Also announced price turns me away, a lot. 700usd msrp is too much for consumer gpu, make it 500 with performance of 2080/1080ti and then we can talk. Probably such msrp is an effect of analysis of sales during cryptocurrency mining boom when people were paying insane money for gpus (800 euros for 580...) and card itself is not worth that much.

I would say i could wait for navi but seeing such price for card which was never planned before (VII) i think prices for navi will be even higher unless they will come to realization that they must lower prices. I wonder how long i will stick to my r9 380 waiting for worthy replacement in performance and price. Maybe i will buy soon 580 for 250 euros or vega 64 for 500 but i would love to have navi with performance of 2080ti for 500 euros as it should be.
