Damn can't believe the 4K specs - so my 7820X 1080Ti won't cut it (not sure why CPU wise
as the core clocks are faster then the 7900 and is it really going to use 10 cores)? Oh well have to give...

Does anyone know the average spec of a PC in Japan? Is laptop gaming the main rig of choice so that 480p is viable on integrated graphics? Anyone based in Japan?

Just use the 2080 FE chart - from what I've seen in all the reviews there's about a 1% difference between a 1080Ti and 2080 FE at 1440p :)

So either price these above the 7800X and 7820X to avoid competing with themselves (neither of these chips have the full 44 PCIE lanes) or price to compete with Ryzen and discontinue the sub 10 core...
