Yup, exactly my thoughts...

This is to late and is going to hurt AMD, unless it is blisteringly quick.

My thoughts exactly, the only way it will pay off is that if they pull something incredible out their hat, but I won't be getting my hopes up though

I don't think it's to late. They did say it won't be late Q2. So it should arrive towards middle of April/May I'm guessing. You can't have them releasing everything to close together, it'll hurt your product sales.

The top end Vega will either have to compete directly with the Pascal refresh coming around summer time or surpass it to make the wait worth it.

AMD can't afford to have another Fury X.

Pascal refresh won't be that impressive tbh. It's exactly what AMD needed to not be left behind. After this point, they should be equal finally in release dates of new GPUs. Or at least very close.
