Hmmm will we see another MSI lightning? or will it be Sapphire who is the "very special board partner". This will be interesting to see.

My guess will be Sapphire or XFX, leaning more towards it being Sapphire.



That being said, I pray to that this is going to be a paper launch and AMD have actual bot and scalper deterrents in place for it.

I can't help but think that the key technology that may hold AMD back is DLSS.

There are not enough games with ray tracing to really affect choice either way, but DLSS has real benefit, especially those wanting to game on their 4K TVs.

I hope the announcement includes an AMD option for similar functionality.

Limited quantity, So basically only reviewers getting cards and maybe a handful of actual customers, This year has been terrible for GPU launches.

Well, at least it's very similar to other RDNA2 cards so top AMD fans don't have to endure another VII. As in, it probably won't get second class treatment driver wise.


But it does seem like VII in many other respects - limited stock, outlier in line-up and rumoured fairly high power usage. Halo product which will compete against Nvidia's highest end "regular" card.

They're definitely a diamond in the rough but they shine where it matters...
