[Various] Exclusive: AMD VEGA Presentation - Page 65

post #641 of 965
AMD is getting on my nerves. If it wasn't because freesync is cheaper I wouldn't bother waiting. They'll most likely bring GTX1080 performance level, and Raja's optimization and VR speech.
We've seen those framerates already. I don't know why people expect some kind of disruptive performance out of Vega.
Anyway, make it $400 and count me in. tongue.gif

Which I am currently looking at on Microcenter's website, and Newegg... ranging in price from $200 - $260.

the rx480 was released at 199? AIB prices are higher but thats beyond AMD to control. Same will probably happen with 580

Yes, I would be disapointed if such a minor increase in performance heralded the same or higher prices, AMD will be getting help from optimizations, they should be able to pass those savings on to the consumer. We can hope for the 8GB to be 200$, because there were some higher-clocked 480's going for nearly 300$ at one time.

RX 480 8GB sold for 230$ on launch, and because of it's extra power draw, board partners were able to increase costs to allow for an extra 50-100mhz. If these new chips have higher efficiency, that won't be a problem for AMD anymore

Ok yeah, fair enough! smile.gif

I forgot about the cost difference on the 480's, between the initial reference cards and the later AIB models.

At this point considering the complete lack of info from AMD as the 1080ti continues to be out of stock everywhere, I am guessing its only going to compete with the 1080 and not the Ti. Sigh.

Probably won't know until AMD officially launches it, at the end of May or early June.

But we can speculate... and I'm guessing probably in the $500+ range... considering the Polaris Refresh is rumored to be released next month... and everyone is speculating that those cards will be in the low/mid-range budget... while Vega is supposed be in the high end budget range.

Expected performance?

I do not know whether to buy a gtx 1080 for $ 400 or vega for 500+ .........
Vega will be a lot faster?

I dont think anyone actually knows the true performance it is supposed to be... but....

You're posting on the very thread discussing it... if you go back to Page one, and read a few pages.... you'll find that some early Presentations and benchmarks of VEGA suggest that it could perform in the range between the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1080 Ti... while there have been some other benchmarks that seem to show it performing at or below the range of a GTX 1080.

Also, I've yet to see a GTX 1080 for under $500...
https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100007709%20601194948
They're all still in the $500 - $600 range.

While the 1080 Ti is $700.

As for the performance of the Polaris Refresh, no one really knows the answer to that yet either, but I think the current speculation is perhaps a 10% performance boost, with a decent drop in power usage...

But the question you should be asking yourself instead is...

Do you want the more expensive G-Sync? Then buy nVidia.
Do you want FreeSync? Then wait and buy AMD...

Personally I am currently debating on my next video card as well... GTX 1080 or a 1070..... or wait for VEGA....

But I have decided to wait until at least the Polaris RX 580 is released, to see what its actual performance is, before making my decision.

Does anyone know if Vega will work to push the YAMAKASI Catleap Q270 2B 120Hz IPS 1440p PC Monitor using ONLY Dual-Link DVI by chance? The display was purchased new in 2013 and it is far far too soon to replace it. If Vega wont work, I assume the GTX 1080 is my only option, and possibly my last option? Any chance AIB's will have dual link enabled DVI ports on Vega cards?

I have been waiting for Vega all this time, years now, but now that it's almost here I am wondering if there will even be any DVI enabled versions. Was hoping for the water cooled version of Vega with 8GB HBM2 in the hopes that all games will run at least 120 fps, or close to it. Thanks for some friendly info.
