On par or better than a 2080 ? Damn that's impressive especially at $100 less.

This is exactly what I want to see from AMD honestly. Good solid FPS battling with NVIDIA and on equal terms!

I'd still get a 2080 however for the RT/DLSS features...unless AMD has some unannounced component that will achieve the same principle (I could be unaware of it as well ). The choice isn't cuz I'm biased toward one company or the other but I'd rather get the RT/DLSS capable card simply to use that feature if I choose to - just how I am is all.

In the trailer for it from AMD they for some reason show a person standing in a street with reflective water for like 3 seconds and then it fades to the AMD logo, Could be AMD's RT.

I doubt AMD will support RT. It's a 2nd gen Vega die, I would be shocked if they radically changed design and added some form of instruction set to boost RT calculation.

Although it's been like what 3 years since Vega launched, so it's possible.

The tri cooler design looks like one of Sapphires

I like their choice for naming the card. It puts the main selling point up front without being douchy about it like Nvidia was with RTX.

"performance gains of 25-45%"
"25% more performance at the same power"


It's going to burn your house down.

25% better performance at same power is regarding 7nm over 14nm, not including any performance/efficiency gains from architectural improvements. VegaII was already confirmed as having an expanded instruction set over Vega1, thoug mostly for AI/ML purposes, and the rumors of an 8GB card were just speculations rather than anything from an industry source, personally I don't believe an 8GB card is even possible, given we already know VegaII uses 4 HBM2 banks and a correspondingly wider bus width to achieve that memory bandwidth rather than the two of Vega1.

They have been really smart about this. 16gb of HBM2, lets call it on par with the 2080 in non RT scenarios and a good release price. If they decide to refresh this in a year and add more CU's or better power management or both they will be able to release a competitive product against almost anything that comes out in the near future. I bet they have good margins on these as well so will be able to bring the price down after Nvidia do the same. Well played first release in a while that i haven't seen as a bigger negative than positive
