With "Ease." Care to show a card running games without throttling at that temp? lmk when you do, bro.

Meh.. Disappointing. Nothing to challange the 1080.. Polaris was all hype. High end effectively ignored. Boo.

Back to waiting for Vega then, where 1080ti or Titan will comfortably stomp it into the ground.

AMD repeatedly said for months it was not challenging the high-end. Did you think AMD would lie and come out with Vega instead of Polaris? Your let down is your own fault for not listening to what AMD said its card were meant to replace and in what segment they would compete in.

Hopefully these suckers have decent OC potential as well.

AMD aren't that far ahead of nvidia in perf/clock as intel are ahead of AMD and AMD aren't that far ahead of intel in clockspeeds as nvidia are ahead of AMD.

Just regurgitating that 'clockspeeds don't matter because perf/clock' doesn't make it so.

So yeah, the performance of it wasn't a surprise at all, I guess.

Is it just me that thinks Linus should've edited out Raja dropping the card? I mean since he was the first press to see it and all, it's somewhat disrespectful imo.

Correction, watching Raja fumble and drop it made the video worth it.

Valid points.
But we are not sure what the perf/clock of this new GCN arch is. And to me, that is one big variable. Without knowing that, i wouldn't be disappointed by just looking at the clockspeeds/

Sure it would be great if AMD cards clocked till 1500Mhz, would help them with marketing too, regardless of what performance it would have.

If you were looking at the presentation - AMD is looking to go after the other 99% or turn the next 250 million gamers into PC gamers by targeting the mainstream first




AMD will go after the high end and challenge them later. But regardless, majority of the market share is the sub $200 GPU, not the $500+ . AMD is targeting for the bigger pie and let Nvidia have the "crumbs" of that pie instead of fighting for it now - which are the higher end users and make up less than 1% of the market.

So far it looks like its working - stocks more than doubled from last year and steadily gaining market share.
