The biggest question I have right now is whether or not the reports of overclocking problems that reviewers are having can be overcomed/fixed. Because, if the Radeon Vii truly can't be pushed any further out of the box, then that "Radeon Vii is slightly behind the 2080" is going to turn to a "2080 is legitimately ahead", because many 2080's can do 2100mhz, provided ample cooling, and the Samsung memory equipped cards can go to +1200/1300mhz on the GDDR6.
I did get a laugh out of the "hopefully the Radeon Vii with driver improvements can trade blows with the RTX 2080ti in some games" comment. Maybe those reports I have seen of the AMD guys always saying "just wait until the drivers improve..." actually are true.
Funny that the RTX 2080 has gotten so much hate, and so many comments on how terrible of a value it was, and AMD has actually managed to release a card that is a legitimately worse value.
