    This is legit the only video I've seen which says it how it is; a fairly high end graphics card priced comparable to the competition, which also happens to offer more to those who would take advantage of it. Why are most people paying out the RadeonVII? Their margins are waaay less than the 1080ti, yet they priced it similarly.

    This card was NEVER meant to be a consumer graphics card. This was made
    for the artificial intelligence market, automotive industries. HBM2 was
    too expensive so AMD killed Vega development and focused on Navi. Taping
    issues during final production caused the delay of the Navi
    announcement at CES. AMD was losing money on Vega\HBM2. The only reason
    it was completed was to have a back up plan if Navi failed.
    Wait for Navi to be announced in June \ July release.
    Navi 12 = RX580-1060 performance\RX3060\4GB GDDR6\75W TDP\$130usd
    Navi 12= Vega56-1070 performance\RX3070\8GB GDDR6\120W TDP\$200usd
    Navi 10 = Vega 64 + 15% - GTX1080 perfomance\RX3080\8GB DDR6\150W

    im fine with my 1080 ti , i also have a backlog of over 1000 games on steam , i am fine even if i cant play all the newest games in 4k , i got a 1440p 144hz monitor anyway
    i dont really care what gpu manufactors do at this point , since amd disappoints and nvidia is kinda lazy , i will just save up money and get a vive , i have to wait for next gen consoles anyway , most games that still come to current gen arent even worth playing because they are held back by ancient hardware , so whats the point in getting an rtx 2080 ti

    I mean it's nice to watch these clips showing off new amazing GPUS or SSDs or whatever, but it means nothing to me since the prices are....interesting?
    I currently have amd fx8350 and i bought my pc for 800e, after borrowing lots of money. To some people it's laughable that i'm saying this but average paycheck in my country (Serbia) is 300 e. At the end of the month after all living expenses,costs i am left with 100e to eat for a month. Laughable to even think that we can afford a single component worth $700 with these paychecks.
    The reason i'm saying this is all the new cool games that keep coming out and make me go into shock, is because with every game the requirements keep increasing drastically from my perspective.
    Even games that are popular like Pubg,Fornite,RoE i cannot play because at the 'lowest set graphic quality' it gives me notification 'low fps lower your quality' .
    It's a dreamland for me but nothing i can do about it. The prices are expensive for people with 2,3x my paycheck yet alone for mine. I tried even to stream to at least make a dollar that way so i can buy a better pc, but playing a game while streaming without losing a lot of FPS is so hard. Especially when you have to find a game to play viewers will watch. Of course this is also a dreamland and drooped it.
    End point of mine is that i'm giving a like because the videos are always well informative and nice to watch, very enjoyable but at the end of it i always feel bitter about myself. Maybe one day the prices will adjust.

  • Bruce Crossan
    Bruce Crossan Před 5 dny

    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.

    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.

  • James Mastroianni
    James Mastroianni Před 5 dny

    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 ..

  • Mr. Blunt
    Mr. Blunt Před 6 dny

    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.

    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 Před 7 dny +1

    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.
