Nice. Looking forward to the next 6-12 months for some pretty sweet releases.

The only thing that bugs me is the quote saying "running PASSIVELY while playing back 4K VR content"

I could be reading too much into it but that sounds like video not a game. Does that mean anything? Maybe - maybe not. I would think that playback would be less taxing than actually rendering it in game. I'm not sure how these things work though. Food for thought.

Still keen as for Polaris. I really hope it's good enough to keep AMD in the market.

It may be just video playback, but my Asus Strix 970 which has the 0db tech starts ramping up its fans few minutes after i starts playing 4k videos everytime.

Didn't test much though as 4k contents are not exactly majority and are pretty hard to come by.
