    It's not that bad.

    It's effectively pretty close to a stock 1080. I'm interested to see what the AIB prices run at - without all the silly discounting on multiple products. Would you pay ~$650-700AUD for stock 1080 performance? That's really not that bad.

    I think the real worry is that these will have virtually no headroom whatsoever. Good luck trying to maintain the boost clocks on the air cooled versions.

    suggested PSU by gigabyte, bit of an overkill ?

    I was pretty certain that the RX was the gamers version not the FE. Also stated that the FE is not tuned for gamers at all. I would expect the results to favor the RX and to be in line with a 1080 give or take.

    LOL

    AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :leet::leet::lol::D:D:D:D:tongue:

    I knew there was a reason i got a 1kw psu for a SINGLE gpu
    No way that will hold up across the board, Doom 4 is literal AMD and Vulkan Technical showcase, its like BF4 with Mantle, common man stop drinking the cool aid.

    No one says you have to buy it. You seem mad that the card can't beat a 1080Ti.

    So the RX Vega 56, guessing that's meant to be aimed at the 1070?

    Holy shit do you actually check what you post? FE != RX.

    Fuck off and wait in line with your pitchfork until the real numbers are out.

    That would be pretty surprising considering the cost / supply of HBM2, not saying they wont do it but... unlikely.

    You can keep rolling out this excuse all you want.

    The reality is if nVidia can put out Quadro cards with drivers that performs to the same level and equal GTX cards. There is no excuse for AMD to gimp "workstation" / "professional" card performance in favor of the "gaming" cards.

    This bullshit excuse might have flown 10 years ago but not anymore.

    I'm usually a big AMD fan, but this launch is pretty poor.

    Thankfully their CPU division keeps kicking goals! Time to hold out for Volta (whens that baby due to hit anyway?)

    We are mad, when you release something after the other company you are suppose to beat them!
    Some of us run 4K and are sick of shit FPS.. GPU's are behind monitors.

    Should have stuck to standard GDDR5, if they did that cards would have been out before the 1080Ti and this whole thing would have been so much smoother.

    What's AMD's hard on with HBM anyway?

    Just remember it takes longer to develop GPU's than it does monitors.

    If there is actually stock at RRP it could be a good buy at launch, with how inflated GPU prices are right now. Cheapest 1080 on umart is $800, gigabyte card which is US$519 on amazon (also the cheapest new I can find on there). If Vega is in stock for $700 or less then I'll consider it.

    The shot of Vega nano looks cute.

    It does yes, but my point was we have evolved past 1080p, Nvidia did well to keep up.. We hoped AMD could beat them so the 4k people could start to fly.... but no. :(

    same ive been stuck with the same panel for almost a decade waiting for 4k to take off and 4 years later we're still here waiting for something that can do a minimum of 60fps
