this coming from a 69xx CF & 290 CF owner. just hope this lowers nvidia pricing a bit, nothing else.
The funny thing is that Raja show fancy graph where Polaris 10 in Crossfire seems like the clear better choice.
Until you stumble upon a game with no Crossfire support, or you have to wait for 1-2-3 months before Crossfire is ready, or crappy scaling. Suddenly it isnt so great.
Relying on Crossfire to beat a single card from the competition is stupid at best. It can work great sometimes where it beats GTX 1080 a tiny but, mediocre at other times where it will perform a lot less than GTX 1080, or just horrible where it will be like half the performance
That they pick AoTS to market the card isnt a coincidence either because thats one game where AMD does better. We will see how it will turn out in other games..
