Until then fuck knows i hope GPU manufacturers keep costs down
I'm not an "AMD fan" I buy whatever suits me. I'm curious about Vega because I like the idea of HBM2.

The point of my post is purely to poke fun at people who have niche requirements for this card and are dismissing it as such before specs have dropped officially. It's all well and good you aren't buying but your sale is a drop in the ocean even for a small market like high end GPUs.

You are just salty that you purchased a 390x.

Vega will still run demanding games or should, power draw and price are the things we really need to know about it though. However I think we're also pretty sure on power and price at this point, power will probably be at least 350w for the top end WC version and price probably $800 - $1200, considering it's HBM2.

I just want to know release dates for AIB cards now.

I just want a card that does a good job at 4k and maintains 60fps for most the time.

you'll be saving for the NEXT generation of cards after the 10 series from nvidia and VEGA unless your willing to go SLI or can handle turning graphic settings down which i don't like to do

It really depends how you use it.

For the right price its the perfect 1080p 120hz or 1440p 60hz video card.

I would be choosing the 1080 Ti for 4k, 1440p and virtual reality.

Well put it this way, my 1080 is only just good enough for VR in the quality settings and games I want, and thats with all the nvidia technologies giving huge performance increases and not even running it as high quality as I would like.
. but we really need something better.

VR can make good use of a card twice as powerful as the 1080. Super high resolution Elite Dangerous at Ultra? yes please.

Yeah I know, but until they get to 800AUD I won't be raising any eyebrows at them. If your careful with settings the 1080ti can do 60fps most times, its only when you get silly and ad on SSAO Ultra or Ultra GodRays and 4x FSAA MSAA that things really disappoint.

In saying that there are games that can't achieve 60fps with the 1080ti still, such as the latest deus ex game. But lets face it some games are just very poorly optimized and its not the cards fault.

PS. If you run SMAA via ReShade you can get really smooth edges at 4k without the crazy fps hit that most games FSAA options give.

It was $852 AUD on the 09/07/2017, $828 AUD with todays conversion

Prices won't come down until there are enough cards available though.
