    so long as it beats 1070 for cheaper / on par price it's a win.

    I just want to see what a Vega 64 does on water using a full loop + full cover block...

    Sure power draw will be stupid but if it clocks well then that could be a good sign :D

    I reckon there will be a few AIB designs with 3 x 8 pins...

    Probably, HBM may seem like a good idea because it's stupidly fast but the supply is so low it's making it pointless. They probably will go HBM3 for Navi but hopefully they'll start building up stock quickly so they actually have some and not wait fucking years for it :rolleyes:.

    That's what I'm hoping for, the 64 never really interested me but the 56 is very interesting providing it's priced right and doesn't get gouged to badly.

    Pretty much, kinda stupid.

    Yes I know what it stands for, AMD said Newegg and Amazon would be selling Vega 64 for MSRP.

    $100 extra is just blatant price gouging.

    Under Linux the FuryX is able to achieve higher then 1080 performance in some tests and games, but thats due to special focus on MESA driver optimizations & with yet official released kernel and drivers. But at the end of the day, 4GB memory is a HUGE bottleneck for any modern games at 4k resolution.

    Isn't this amd fault?

    What if no one wanted it, was AMD going to compensated Amazon, Newegg or any other retailer if it didn't sell and flopped?

    Only way to stop price gouging is for AMD to have enough stock and supply all retailers.

    if no retailer increased price and ran out of stock, and people sold it on eBay, is that price gouging.

    Maybe it's AMD's fault or there HBM supplier.

    On that note, Vega is $1,148 in NZ, direct conversion to AUD is $1064, that's expensive, very very very expensive.

    That actually looks a little bit disappointing.

    Performance of a 1080, price of a 1080ti, the power consumption of 2 1080s, and even if you do want one there is a good chance that the only people who can get them will be the miners.

    That's the way I see it, there was no shortage of Ryzen, so AMD just didn't manufacture enough or they don't think they will be that higher a demand after the initial hype, of course they could also follow apples example and sell direct to consumers at msrp so all retailers have to match or sell lower.

    The question I'm more interested in is, do Newegg or Amazon perform their on internal bench and set a price, obviously not for all products but for a major hyped gpu couldn't they?

    For example, Amazon knows there is demand from gamers and potentially miners, so they ask for 500,000 units and AMD say no you can only have 100,000 max.

    Presuming they get stock before or around the same time reviewers do, they could easily open one up and benchmark for hash rate and if it is good they up the price, if hash is bad than they price accordingly.

    It's not like Newegg or Amazon wouldn't have the personal to figure out the hash rate?

    maybe Nvidia are paying the major distributors to have the price so high.... i wouldnt put it past them given what they've done in the past.

    That tin foil hat must be keeping your head warm at night. :lol:

    nVidia would have no control AMD stock levels or pricing, especailly with AMD exclusive brands like Powercolor, HIS, XFX and Sapphire. There is also nothing stopping a major retailer like Amazon / Newegg from going direct with these brands and by pass the standard distribution channels.

    nVidia might be able to leverage some power with brands that go both AMD and NV GPUs but with first release reference cards that's not gona happen.

    That's silly, they could just do a paper launch of Volta price and than lower exisiting pascal price.

    AMD has shown 2 year paper launches are doable.

    Vega 56 looks like the better card at the price point. AIB partner cards will be interesting to see if they can push more performance.
