Interestingly, the article kind of insinuates that AMD has little faith in the Vega 64 card.

Gamers Nexus has since taken down their article on this subject. There can be many reasons for this.

Gamers Nexus broke Threadripper's NDA and they insinuated that they have not received a Vega sample as punishment. They word this as working in "defiance" against AMD's "expressed favouritism" after some people were able to post Threadripper data.

The simple thing is that Gamers Nexus broke NDA in a way that can only be seen as a way to boost their traffic as PC enthusiasts searched for every bit of early Threadripper data that they could find. They willingly broke embargo.

It is likely that Gamers Nexus has removed their article in an attempting to mend their relationship with AMD. Either that or some of their articles content was false.

From what I have heard it just isn't ready. Not in any volume. What's the point in launching something you can't sell?

I'm not holding out much hope. I think Vega is gonna be sort of a flop. Can't hate on them too much tho if it is. Both Ryzen and Threadripper have been pretty big successes and given Intel some much needed competition. It was just a year ago that you couldn't throw a rock without hitting 5 people that were predicting AMD would soon be bankrupt. Whether Vega is a dud or not, AMD has done a pretty good job of righting the ship. Maybe next generation they'll get their GPU lineup up to par as well.

Yeah I have to agree. IMO Vega flopped a long time ago. Hopefully it will sell in droves to the miners, and drop Nvidia prices a little. That way it will work out doing some good for every one

The big issue here is £200 more than a 1080 for 1080 performance or worse. Don't forget your large pinch of sodium chloride though.

I don't like that guy. He's clumsy, messy and it annoys me. I worked with a guy like him. Everything you touched or leaned on was covered in f*****g thermal paste !!

It seems he has not learned that you can not "gob in the eye" of your masters without paying a penalty. I don't dislike him because of it, but he will learn. The other day he did this proper ranting video slagging MSI off for putting bloatware on their laptops. The thing is, if any one has half a brain they would just delete it all or reinstall from scratch. I mean, who doesn't do that when they buy a laptop?

He will also learn that ignoring NDA gets you in big legal trouble. Funny how he's happy to slag AMD off but shat himself when their lawyers got in touch.. I dunno man...

He's accepted his role, he needs to realise he is a salesman, not a voice for the masses. They get absolutely nowhere.

It also angered me when he drew all over the special Threadripper chip AMD gave him. Seriously, that proper, proper narked me. Disrespectful t**t !

I totaly disagree with you on this. I think he makes sone mistakes, but dont we all?? GN makes some very solid videos with some great testing he does.

I agree with Governour. He's done some stupid things, but I definitely consider Gamers Nexus to be one of the more thorough places for reviews. I don't particularly like his opinion pieces, but his analysis is often sound.
