Assuming that an offhand comment by a CTO overrides years of knowledge working with GCN is user-error. AMD has been positively muted with their recent releases, so the only people I can blame for 'overhyping' are extrapolating enthusiasts who frequent sites such as this.

Lisa Su said it in the launch event too.

I don't recall Lisa Su saying that but I coulda missed it.

well to be fair, Fury cards were indeed an overclocker's dream, i mean its quite different from an overclocker's reality. lachen.gif

Similar to the dream of having 4GB DDR5 but only getting 3.5/

I love how people saying that the 970 bringing $550 performance down to the $350 price point was revolutionary. This happens every few years in GPUs due to shifting architectures and process improvements. HD 4670 did the same thing nearly 10 years ago.

It's the same thing as saying the 1070 brought $600-700 980Ti performance down to the $400 category. AMD just never had an answer after the 290X, especially if you consider all releases after that were not competitive.

My guess is the skipping 20nm hurt AMD's R&D and it took a while for both AMD and Nvidia to produce a good amount of 14/16nm chips.

what i think is that their insistence on node-shrinks hurt their budget more.
they could've simply settled for 28nm in long-term and concentrated on designing an architecture thats superior to their current one.
meanwhile after smaller nodes gets mature and ready then they could simply push for it without encountering as much issues.

of course architectural designs takes much more budget than simply shrinking nodes, an architecture shift would provide a much more solid foundation that merely shrinking an existing architecture's node.
