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...
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...Edited by cjc75 - 3/20/17 at 9:03am
