[KitGuru] AMD Radeon RX Vega caught hiding in plain sight - Page 7

post #61 of 664
Verifying any leak is the absolute minimum anyone should do, but this industry is so shoddily operated by everyone that there are no real standards and/or expectations sadly.

Well at least we're UNDERhyping now, which IMO is a good thing, because worst case scenario Vega performs exactly as expected and nobody ends up massively disappointed.

When the "news" is all about generating hits on the site, regardless of the truth of the news, you get wild speculations left and right daily.
This is why i say, wait for release. Stop believing what sites say just because you want to believe them. Most of the time, it ends up being a bust.

^even a broken clock is right twice a day, so...

Numbers aside, looking at this from a different perspective, there would be no reason to create a placeholder unless Vega launch was close. They simply would want to get ahead of work done, and now that the basic outline is made, all they have to do is go in there and correct it when they actually get their hands on Vega. Ignoring the exactitude of the information itself, one notion we can take from this news article is Vega has to be coming very soon, maybe two to three weeks. As I see no reason to have an employee create a new page for the card with estimated performance numbers and figures and somewhat accurate or inaccurate specifications or details, unless; they have Vega being sent for review, and they know they are getting a card soon to do an actual review (they already have all the data regarding launch, when it is, when NDA lifts, when they can talk about the card, etc.). Why create a placeholder like this if release was not really close, other than the reason of TPU being inauthentic and trying to drive traffic to their website.

WOOO!

Now I'm hyped about the underhype.

Yep there is a meme going around that AMD is over hyping because they are not over hyping. Astroturfing and viral marketing is a virus that needs to be killed. The question is, will enthusiasts continue to let them turn them into puppets and their community into a joke?

Ahh Kitguru, clickbaiting fake news again. It wasn't that long ago that you pushed tall tales of how DDR3 would hurt Skylake and how I could no longer overclock my non-K. Reminds me of facebook quality news feed.

To accomplish that you would have to kill reddit. Now that would be some hype I could get behind biggrin.gif

Well... Vega and Fiji both have 4096 cores. A Fury X runs at 1GHz while Vega hits 1.2GHz boost. Polaris is about 15% faster per core per clock than 28nm GCN. TPU has overall benchmarks for the reference 1080Ti and some older cards here: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_1080_Ti/30.html

A Fury X is 60% as fast as a 1080Ti. Vega therefore should be (0.6)(1.2)(1.15) = 83% as fast, putting it right around a reference 1080.

I don't think Vega will be competing with Nvidia's high-end, unfortunately, but it should do as well as or maybe a bit better than GP104. I think AMD's biggest issues right now are clockspeeds. Their 14nm chips just aren't hitting high enough frequencies to really be competitive, while Pascal is near 2GHz easily.
