    I think this (Radeon VII) will be a good card for me, will let me move away from nVidia and still maintain the performance in games and probably better performance in compute. The only reason I have the Titan is there wasn't anything from AMD that would give that level of gaming and be still good with compute (and I tried the Vega FE, just wasn't enough).

    They ran out of funds for new GPU tech because even when AMD was faster, cheaper and used less power people still purchased Nvidia cards instead .. Navi is a 7nm GPU at RTX 2070 performance with a lower TDP and at a better price.. so there's going to be at least some type of completion come mid 2019.. the high end will be lost to Nvidia in 2019 though. as when they move to 7nm things will get crazy.. at least the mid range stuff will be cheap

    Navi in the PS5 is stated to run games at minimum 4k 60FPS but surpassed that with ease according to SONY CEO.. all with a low power draw. AMD have hit a 7nm jackpot this Navi.

    $700 US = $974 AU straight up currency conversion than you add GST, early adopter taxes, hidden taxes, BS taxes, shops gonna make a profit tax, etc.. Good luck.

    AMD might do a Vega 64 BS tactics by giving rebates ( you don't loose much money if there are no stocks to sale) to make it look cheap than you'll never see that price for another year or so and no stocks for ages.

    reading that it's playing in the 1080Ti's pool. hmmm

    even going backwards there, lost one console to nvidia - so yeah, the hottest console of the moment is running on super cheap cheap nv silicon.

    oops.

    Msi lists the power consumption specs
    VII @ 300w
    2080 @ 260w
    2080ti @ 350w

    If amd has caught up to NV in chip efficiency that may hint to how the cards are ranked(or not).

    why would you bother you could have had the same performance as this card that uses less power and wont melt the polar ice cars from 2 years ago.

    that's the problem with GPU upgrades. Its effectively coupled with monitor upgrades lol. Sounds like you're due a 144hz 1440p or ultrawide

    I will never give up my dell 3007.

    I have tested some of the Asus LCDs etc. Their ips just doesn't have as good colour etc. Probably OLED will get me to upgrade.
