Err that's the exact opposite of the title, he refuted the paper launch claim with a ten dollar wager he's convinced he's winning?!.

The wordplay here eludes me however this is exactly how the bet has been perceived on Twitter. :ohwell: After I've read your comment I'm not sure I can even claim to speak English :(
He is saying he will enjoy winning the bet which implies LateNavi will not be scarce.

Which could be why it isn't launching until October. To have stock.

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

LOL.... OP.... get some sleep, bud. There is no word play. This is simple 'how a bet works' words. Azor is saying there will be availability on launch.

however this is exactly how the bet has been perceived on Twitter.
lol, dolts.

In this case...... don't hate the game (twitter) hate the playa (users).
Can I hate them both?

Perhaps Twitter's fact checking censor bots missed it.

Soon, my padawans, your doubts and fears that have led you to the dark side for far too many years... you will finally know light once again. The Jedi have been in exile, but October 28th they return. Be patient my friends, soon we will be free of Intel and Nvidia forever.

Not if it doesn't beat the 3080. Barring supply problems, I am buying which ever is faster. Or available.

Same, doesn't mean I can't have some fun with it :roll:

I think we are going to be surprised by big navi though, I really think AMD has got their crap together this time, so we will see. I'm honestly in no rush, most of the games I am playing right now are indie anyway. I may not even buy until January or February, I don't know yet. I do know I am going Zen 3 100% though.

They need to straight up double performance to just match 3080. They did double the 5700xt presuming leaks are true but they aren't getting a linear performance jump. That means they need to pick up what they lose via arch and node tweaks. Not that they can't but when was the last time we saw a jump like they need?

Fixed the title. Navi will be apathy at launch...

Nvidia has game, busted memory and all. Navi can't break memory in one week.

big navi is on 7nm EUV, doesn't that count for zomething? Zen 3 is rumored big gain causes of 7nm EUV. we won't know until oct 8th of course. but if so, i expect big navi to be bigger jump than we realize.

It's not like they are going from 12 to 7. There going from 7 to 7+. The best thing they have going for them is they can crank the wattage to match Nvidia.

There is no 7nm EUV for Zen3, at least not initially. Lisa (or was it Papermaster?) confirmed it a while back, back at CES IIRC. You will have something like 7nm+ or N7P denoting it's better than regular N7 used for Zen2, how much ~ that's anyone's guess till the reviews come out!

That's what I thought when I read that Twitter users comment that he can't work because he hasn't got the latest card out yet.

Now THERE'S a novel concept! :rolleyes:

That means they need to pick up what they lose via arch and node tweaks. Not that they can't but when was the last time we saw a jump like they need?
Honestly, I don't think they even need to equal the 3080. The 3080 is going to have availability issues for months, and in the end, at the price it is I bet no more than 20% of gamers buy it. If AMD is super competitive in the 3060 and 3070 territory, where most purchases will be made, then they may have a fairly successful card. I was about to say they would have a winner, but I don't believe it will go that far.

Leave it to radeon to do their usual Twitter centric marketing.
The real question is what happens if "big navi" fails, a new 3 year wait for "even bigger" navi?

Yeah right, until the next product announcement turns you around 180 degrees again :love:

And in a general sense.... Twitter............ *sigh*
They're trying to save it with fact checkers but really, you can't stop this tide of stupid, its built on an algorithm to promote it. Good business, they'll never be out of work!

Yes, if they can place Navi square between the 3070 and 3080 they've got a winner, especially now that the 3080 is starting to look less attractive in several ways as the dust settles.

But that is being pretty optimistic if you look at what 5700 is. Also, they lack GDDR6X so that kinda rains on that parade pretty hard.
