    I was hoping for more from AMD, but i agree with you on this.

    I don't think it will be dead, Navi will be in both Xbox and PS5 consoles, phones, cloud gaming and notebooks. It's just the PC enthusiast market where it may be dead, I don't think AMD really cares to much about this market any way, it wouldn't be a huge profit area for them.

    Also the fact the navi architecture will be across so many platforms you might find that a lot of upcoming games will be optimized to run best on Navi for cross platform compatibility, and that Navi based graphics card will run those games better then a equivalently priced Nvidia graphics card.

    Any way I'm excited to see what Nvidias response will be, hopefully cheaper and more powerful graphics cards. I'm due a GPU upgrade and it looks like the next few months are going to be very interesting.

    I wasn't talking about them getting overall performance lead, just saying it wont be dead in the water as you commented.

    I think this time round it might be different with game optimization, the fact that nearly every other segment of the market will be powered by Navi, games studio will have to optimize for it. Microsofts xCloud will also be navi powered along with the new console any game studio that microsoft owns will code for it.

    I have no doubt that Nvidia will still be the top dog and perfomance king at the top end, and I'll probably get a Nvidia card myself.

    In the end who knows if we will even need a GPU in the near future if game streaming starts to take off.

    I'm curious - you don't believe AMD will just reduce their prices accordingly?

    lol by what $50 under the nvidia card -- its not worth buying an amfail card for a $50 discount and giving up all the options that an nvidia card gives you

    If Navi's not competitive at RRP, AMD will just price this card down to whatever level it sells bucket loads of them.

    Only way this card won't be good value for gamers, is that it is so good value compared to nvidia for compute that compute customers buy them all (which is actually fairly likely).

    Seriously? not worth the $$$ at all. Thats a very poor example, give me something better to make me think the 2080ti is worth $2100 :p

    but for the misiscule price difference why wouldnt you choose that option and have it as an option considering they will be about the same performance ( at least until the 2070 super drops)

    Saying greedy assed Nvidia holds the performance crown is about as meaningful as informing the average punter that the 600SEL Mercedes Benz is the best car.
