    They way they market it as being 1440p and 4K playable seems very mundane and as if they don't have much confidence in the card. I doubt it will compete with a 2080 in most titles. It will probably sit between a 2070 and 2080, but that price will make it uncompetitive, especially if Nvidia release 1100 series of their higher end cards since RTX features are very expensive and AMD doesn't support them, even though they are priced against them.

    I think even if Nvidia card will be a bit better in the same price range, I should go with AMD just to support the competition. Maybe even get Ryzen.

    man I seent them bench's for 700 dollars that card is not worth it.. their cards are not powerful enough to drive HBM2 and they wont be for a long time its just wasted resource's on a technology to make you think your superior..

    Why amd didnt go with gddr6 and then could make bigger chip at 500+mm square at 7nm that would monster. From I understand they made it small (350mm sq) because 2x8gb hbm memory.

    because of people like you we will never see competition from AMD. All you want, like most, is AMD to make a good gpu to bring down the price of Nvidia gpu's. You'd never actually consider putting an AMD card in your system. And before you say "well 10 years ago I had an entry level AMD blah" yea it's called you didnt have the money for that precious Nvidia card yet.

    I'm a 3D animator, I have 2 PCs right now .. One is Intel with nvidia card, the other is AMD with Radeon card .. the cpu's are from the same era .. let me tell you, both have the same performance in everything .. AMD is cheaper, but Intel and Nvidia have more support .. meaning that more applications - games or not - are made to run on Intel and Nvidia .. but in terms of raw power, they go neck and neck .. Sometimes I prefer this, sometimes I prefer that .. What I like about AMD and Radeon is that you get power with all your money .. you are not paying just to brag that you have blah blah blah .. Intel and Nvidia are more user friendly .. I'm sorry to say that but I feel like they're for noobs who don't appreciate what AMD is offering .. I'm not saying Intel and Nvidia are bad .. I love both my machines .. One to spoil myself and one for the rough rides .. Just saying what I feel about them ..

    Why when AMD does something SLIGHTLY right, everyone gives extra compliments like they did something bigger than they did but didn't? And when Nvidia goes beyond, people buy their products but give half assed compliments and seem less impressed? I just feel like AMD can add one extra GB of VRAM to their card and everyone will go on a parade for it whereas Nvidia can go double or triple the distance and it seems like Nvidia has to work EXTRA hard just to get an "eh that's good" out of people? People are so fucking weird.

    You call this competition.. man you’re all about fluff... 699 is the price of a 2070... and nvidia will counter with a driver that upps the performance.. Amd is still way behind the 2080ti and the rtx.... maybe actually test it instead of going by what a manufacturer does.

    Future will only increase it no doubt of it, so yeah as always AMD is more future proof, can't wait to buy it as I have freesync monitor.

    Linus, great article again. I share your sentiment that competition is good. But...
    There are two things awkward here.
    1.) RTX is way too overpriced
    2.) Radeon VII might be good, but is still VEGA, not Navi
    3.) no Raytracing
    So buying an old chip basically. What are your thoughts.

  • naveen gupta
    naveen gupta 2 дня назад

    AMD just made a case for buying the RTX 2080. If you are stupid enough to consider paying 700 USD for this card, maybe you will smell the coffee and shell out a little more to get the much more capable RTX card.

    So let me get this straight, Vega 64 wasn't a competitor when it was comparable to the 1080 over a year later, but now we have the Vega VII which is competitive with the 2080/1080Ti (mind you almost 2 years later) and we are ecstatic? I thought Vega 56 + 64 were good cards (and still are), but we're really changing the narrative here for what?

  • Direnta

    Stop saying it's "expensive", it is 700$ new card with 1080ti performance with 16 gb of HBM memory, that's not expensive. That's reasonable pricing.

    Yeah, many of you will argue that rtx is bullshit and noone need it. congrats! If everyone thought like that we would still Play 2D games without online Multiplayer etc.
    Amd had to Go further, pushing nvidia more so we as consumers can get better prices!
