Specifications for ASUS' RX Vega Strix Gaming OC have been released

Will these increased clocks offer much of a real-world performance boost?



Read more on ASUS' RX Vega 64 Strix OC.

too expensive - tell that to the people who got it for msrp

too hot - i havent seen people complaining of this

too late - when is irrelevant to the consumer. its available and offers a certain performance for a certain price.

For the performance that Vega is, AMD are pricing it too high.

The biggest problem with this card, is not the card, but AMDs marketing around it. They set consumer expectations too high, they hyped the bejesus out of the card for months before release, and set expectations to be great card, reasonable price.

For mine: the performance is acceptable, if they price the cards at around the gtx1070 mark or lower. But they didn't. The prices are closer (at least here) to a 1080 (which is faster), and only a fraction lower than the much better performing 1080ti.

This then made the card irrelevant. And it's a pity. I specifically held off of buying a gpu for almost a year because of the jerkaround.

I honestly don't see much of a market for this, except people joining the pc community without having seen the rubbish of the launch.

No. The people that hyped this was definitely the community. AMD never ever hinted at Vega being more than a 1080ti killer.
Only thing AMD messed up was the fact that they should have shipped all the cards with the default BIOS set as power saving mode and just called it default. Then choose the other BIOS as performance. It would really have changed the perception of Vega. Not massively, but enough to make it not be such a reason for Nvidia Fanboys to get all high and mighty about Pascal. I switched to Pascal BTW from Polaris before anyone gets all offended (I'm not talking about anyone here)

No one expected vega 64 to be a 1080ti equal as it was shown that vega 64 would compete with the 1080.

For the price, power consumption, and performance then there is no reason to get a vega 64 unless you have a free sync monitor sitting around.

As I have stated before, I waited too long for VEGA and in the end got a 1080ti.

Except the promotional video containing the irresponsible phrase 'Poor Vega', insinuating that Vega could beat Pascal, which the 1080Ti is a part of. So in a roundabout way they did. But I'm chalking that up to other aspects, such as Vega 11 being competitive in the midrange space next year against Volta, or the fact that their marketing team had no idea what AMD engineers were building. Apparently that happens. That's Nvidia blames the 3.5GB VRAM thing on: miscommunication.

Your example makes no sense, and sounds more like people assuming something out of what they wanted to hear. There is a reason months and months before launch AMD tried bringing hype levels down. The community was out if control

I agree that the hype was all media-driven, and no fault of AMD. People were so horny for Nvidia to finally have some competition that they lost their bloody minds. This fault can be laid at the feet of pretty much every popular YouTuber and tech website.
