AMD already announced they have a RTX 2080 competitor.
First of all, I wasn't specifically referring to anything, didnt even mention Vega 64, let alone be talking about Vega 64 vs 1080/Ti, but since you bring it up...
Vega 64 was never meant to compete against the 1080 Ti and it doesn't. It was targeting the 1080, however with driver tweaks and AIB cards, it pulled ahead of the 1080 in some tests but still fell short in others. Theres a plethora of information on the internet to back this up or are you going to deny this?...
Secondly, driver optimisation has helped AMD in every previous generation in memory and I bet that it will happen again this time around.
Third, BF5 is not an AMD Exclusive or even AMD sponsored. Nvidia's logo is on that one.
In DX12, BF5 runs better on the Vega VII than a 2080 and trades blows with 2080 Ti, on a buggy driver. I'm not expecting it to smash the 2080 let alone 2080 Ti, but I am expecting it to get better than it currently is, across most if not all titles.
